In which we continue our discussion of Gravity’s Rainbow with a look at chapters 23, 24 and 25 of Book Three.
Errata: For a while during this episode, Bo had a bad set-up that caused some extra noise in the recording. We apologize profusely for this.
The myth of Tantalus is mentioned. You can read about him here.
You can view Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights in all its wonderfully demented glory here.
The song that Chris tries to remember is “By Torpedo or Crohn’s” by the band Why? on their album Alopecia. The lyrics he wanted to recall are:
I’ll be okay
Cool as a rail
If they just let us have health food in hell.
As always, thank you for listening.
