Nathan Holic John King Contemporary

Nathan Holic, right, in dire need of another beer at The Outer Rim lounge of The Contemporary Resort.

On this week’s show, I talk to my friend Nathan Holic, who is an Orlando writer and editor of the 15 Views of Orlando anthology series. While in situ at The Contemporary Resort, we discuss the stressors of theme park-going, the uses of such postmodern settings, and the odd counterbalances of melodrama and dark satire in Stanley Elkin’s The Magic Kingdom.

NOTES

Contemporary Marry Cottles Room

Mary Cottle’s room? The equivalent of room 822 now, but perhaps not back in 1986. (No, we didn’t knock on the door.)
