BOOK OF THE MONTH: Tower
STORY OF THE BOOK: Tower is a series of interconnected stories set in Beanstalk, a 674-story skyscraper and sovereign nation. Each story deals with how citizens living in the hypermodern high-rise deal with various influences of power in their lives; a group of researchers have to tell their boss that a major powerbroker is a dog, a woman uses the power of the internet to rescue a downed fighter pilot abandoned by the government, and an out-of-towner finds himself in charge of training a gentle elephant to break up protest. The author, Bae Myung-hoon explores the forces that shape modern life with wit and a sly wink at the reader.
GUEST: Saimi Jeong, a Communications professional/Journalist will join us in conversation with Harry Jun who is a Sydney based comedian and was a RAW Comedy NSW State Finalist in 2019 and 2020.
