This month’s video review is of Prime Meridian, a novella some of you on the $3/month level and above got as a backer reward. Those of you who did, I hope you enjoy! Those who did not, I’m here to let you in on why you should pre-order it post haste.
“Perhaps I’m a little weird in that the facts of the story—a terrorist attack and the discourse over how it should be remembered—pale in comparison to my interest in the form of the story. Bradford has an excellent grasp of the rhythm of an NPR segment (down to the reporter, with a name suspiciously and whimsically similar to the “musical” Sylvia Poggioli), to the point where I could easily hear the ever-present, but rarely informitive ambient sound that would accompany the piece. Made me tear up at work, which makes it memorable.”
