Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Season 2, Episode 5)

August 24th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

This week's author is a man who has not only been suspected of actual time travel, but has also been compared to American National Treasure Nick Cage.

Did you get my pun?  National Treasure?

Graham Green (the writer, not the actor from Dances With Wolves) wrote "The End of the Party," and then almost a hundred years later Heather decided Ken should read it.  So he did.  And now you are moments away from listening to that very read.  So in a way, you too are an actor in Dances With Wolves.

As is always the case our hosts do their best to stay on topic, but important things do have a way of derailing them.

What are the rules to Stab Apple?
How bad is inbreeding?
And why are kids so terrible? But really, kids, can't you just be cool?

"The End of the Party" was first published in 1929 and has been reprinted in many anthologies.  Graham Greene considered it one of his best stories.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

Now sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
