Ostensibly an audiobook, ‘Wizard People, Dear Reader’ is a darkly comedic retelling of the first entry in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series and, incidentally, the audio syncs perfectly to the film ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone’ (2001), acting as an alternate narration track to the events onscreen. Such an infusion of dissident subtext into a pop-culture phenomenon is in line with such works as ‘The Dark Side of Oz’, and the film parodies of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax.
