Making fun of the classics is a Thing that I do. Mostly I do it here, at The 100 Greatest Books Challenge. But sometimes my reviews get exported to other publications—in this case, Punchnel’s, who generously recycles my classic reviews in a monthly series.
The Pilgrim’s Progress is up and better than ever. From John Bunyan’s “Author’s Apology” to the allegorical Christian’s long-predicted demise, there’s just so, so much to make fun of.
