What is a Novel?

David Gilmour sent me the following:
“For the book club’s information, there’s a two part BBC program well worth listening to. Noah Richler has two 25 min. episodes on how stories play a part in cultural history, going through genres and detailing myths, epics, novels, and even including the digital world of gaming and social media.”

I include links here:
A Short History of Story, episode 1
A Short History of Story, episode 2

I listened to both, and they are excellent. There are many ideas discussed that relate to broad issues we have discussed regarding a number of our recent book selections.
