In this episode of the show, Frank discusses the enigmatic nature of the J.D. Salinger estate. The estate has been silent since the death of the famous author in 2010, even as documentaries come out about him, and some of his unpublished stories are leaked online. Through all of this, the estate remains completely silent, like a straightjacketed mummy with duct tape over its mouth. Discussed as well are the Story Magazine collection at the Princeton University library, Friedrich Nietzsche’s influence on modern philosophy, two members’ stories from the Real Writers’ Group in Austin, TX, and the movie “Being John Malkovich.”
