Ep. 0045: Philip Dru, Administrator

Philip Dru, Administrator:  A Tale of Tomorrow, 1920-1935 is an attempted novel written by “Colonel” Edward Mandell House in 1912.  It’s a book few have read (with good reason), but many have referenced.  Here, Prof CJ gives you his lowdown on this literary monstrosity.

Join Prof CJ as he discusses:

  • A brief synopsis of this novel
  • Some of the themes found in it, with excerpts to illustrate some of them
  • Some thoughts on the book’s literary merit (or lack thereof), again with illustrative excerpts
