Atlas Slugged Again! – Ellis Weiner

Atlas Slugged AGAIN by Ellis Weiner is a humorous parody of the famous Atlas Shrugged novel. When we asked Ellis on Canned Laughter and Coffee why he does parodies he called it “Commando literary criticism” and he meant it. The author’s other works are also of a humorous nature which is not surprising given the fact that he wrote for National Lampoon and is a fan of Mad Magazine (aren’t we all?!!).  Join us as Ellis talks about learning to okay with hating novels he was assigned in high school and other funny tidbits.
Also find out what happened to host extraordinaire Renee Bernard that caused guest host Sheila English to insist on pictures or souvenirs!  It will shock you! Okay, that’s a lie, we just said that so you’d listen in and make fun of Renee with us. Still! The show is fun, funny and entertaining so you should listen anyway.

Check out the podcast, feel free to leave comments or questions and as an added bonus, as promised on the show, we giving you detailed instructions on how to access this funny (and shockingly inexpensive) novel. You can find it on Smashwords!
