THIS WON'T HELP Modest Proposals for a More Enjoyable Apocalypse

by | Read by Eli Grober

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Eli Grober narrates his collection of dystopian satires with deadpan self-assurance. It's the ideal voice for the 100 essays--none longer than eight minutes--with titles such as "'I'm Only Joking,' I Say As I Kill You" and "How I Saved Enough To Buy a House With My Parents' Money." One of Grober's more sincere readings can be heard in "The Telescope We Sent to Deep Space Wants to Come Home," in which he infuses humanity into an inanimate space object. Like all good satire, Grober isn't laughing at the problems--environmental disasters, creeping authoritarianism, and social polarization. He's poking fun at our responses to them.
