Show Notes

“I woke with my lungs burning and a wall of green murk crushing me. I thought I was going to die, until I saw that there was a boy in the water.”

Praise Leviathan! Grab a bucket of squid ink and brave the murky depths for book club to talk about “Circus Girl, The Hunter, and Mirror Boy”, a spooky, ghostly, magical short story by JY Yang. We dive deep into mirror symbolism and marvel at the moody atmosphere, dystopian drowned future worldbuilding, and endless clever easter eggs packed into this evocative short. Stay dry, squiddies.
