By the Book: What is the Great American Novel?

The 4th of July is the United States of America’s Independence Day, and we take the opportunity to discuss American literature - and particularly, the idea of the “great American novel” and why it is so particular to the US. We wrap things up with a nod to World UFO Day, and the books that revel in telling stories of unidentified flying objects.
