BOOKS OF SOME SUBSTANCE (B.O.S.S.) -- Did you just stop at digging up her body? How crippling is your love?

In this episode, San Francisco State University literature Professor Summer Star joins Nick and David for a rousingly dark conversation on Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights. Is this story within a story within a story meant to be identifiable to anyone? Are those really ghosts? Is Heathcliff a critique of mid-19th century British class structure, a rotten bastard or simply one who loves and revenges harder than any made for TV adaptation can handle?

Like the cosmos, Wuthering Heights is vast. And inside us all.
