Nuttiness ensues as we talk the lore of E.T.A. Hoffman’s The Nutcracker and its subsequent ballet, film, and book adaptations. We also take a trip to the technopunk fairyland of Claire Legrand’s 2014 YA novel Winterspell. Be prepared for hero-villain romances, Drosselmeyer wank, Rat King thirst and bisexual rep done right as we settle in for the holidays.
