Do you remember last month, when our Book Club took on the behemoth of conspiracy literature that is Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum? No? Well, as we already explained, that's because it never happened. Laura June and myself, Adi Robertson, created the whole thing as a joke, or perhaps as a futile attempt to find meaning in a random universe. We never expected it to go so far. But here we sit, ready to answer all your questions about this book that you may or may not have read. Does it even really exist? We're about to find out.

With us is Ken Layne, who writes and edits at The Awl, spent six years as editor of the Washington politics website Wonkette, and is the author of the novel Dignity. We'll be going live at 1:00 pm ET / 6:00 pm GMT, and you can watch us right from this page.
