Money Makes a Big Difference (QR 074)

January 16, 2024

After recounting their holidays and discussing the vomiting strategies of families with small children, Kris and Tara start with their new year updates. The first? Kris’s new book, Dreamer, is out. You can check it out here or wherever books are sold.

We’ve got some good recommendations this week, folks. Conversation starters, you might say.

Official Recommendations

From Kris: Good Grief  (Netflix)

This week, Kris recommends Dan Levy’s directorial debut, Good Grief, which recently premiered on Netflix. In addition to directing, Dan Levy writes and acts in this compelling (and sometimes frustrating) film about a man and his friends struggling to come to terms with their grief after his husband dies tragically.

Watch this movie with someone because it may not be a perfect movie, but it’s a perfect movie to talk about. You’ll thank us later.

From Tara: Magdalene Nox by Milena McKay

This week, Tara recommends Magdalene Nox by Milena McKay, the companion novel to one of Tara’s all-time favourite romances, The Headmistress. Tara praises its heightened language and how that contributes to creating the vibe of a beautiful fairy tale about two women surrounded by others while still very much alone, as they find companionship in each other.

While The Headmistress was written as a standalone novel, Madalene Nox references it without always reproducing the content, making it a little more difficult to read by its own. This is great for you because you get to read both!
