Beach Set Part 3: “The Beach” by Alex Garland

In 1996, Alex Garland wrote what would become a cult novel for backpackers called “The Beach”. In 2021, the Banzai Boys add the novel to their summer “Beach Set” in hopes of discovering what makes a beach such an enduring setting in pop culture. Jay and Travis discuss the novel’s protagonist, Richard’s drive for adventure and escape as well as his position as a Generation X character.
