"anne tyler" Discussed on The Book Review
"Charging plot, it's really a meditation on fathers and sons and on the ways that terrible grief and regret can affect us. Physically, as well as emotionally. As the very title of the book, razor blade tears makes clear. But it's not mawkish in any way. Cosby just spends a great yarn and while he's doing it, he's grappling with these big issues. Homophobia, racism, poverty class, you name it. But in such a big hearted, clear eyed way, and with lines that just sort of stop you in your tracks on every page, I just want to leave you with an example of one of those lines. One of the dads is talking to the other dad. And he says, folks like to talk about revenge, like it's a righteous thing, but it's just hate in a nicer suit. Tina, thank you so much. Such a fun book. And I feel like you can already picture the movie. Liz over to you. I would love to tell you about wayward by Dana, spiotta. This is a novel about a midlife insomniac and the mother of a teenager who spontaneously buys a fixer upper in downtown Syracuse. And moves into it. She's running from something. Actually, she's running from everything. Her marriage, her kid, her age, her aimlessness, her, I hate to use the term midlife crisis because it's so tired but brings a really fresh twist to this story. And what this woman finds is real and funny and honest and especially relatable. If you live with a teenager who's resting expression is either benign tolerance or barely concealed disdain. Wayward reminded me of ladder of years by Anne Tyler that wonderful book about a woman who walks away from her family on the middle of a vacation and begins a whole new life. For me, both of these books, but especially wayward, were very close to home. Liz, thank you. Gall, tell us about yours. Yes. So I want to talk about a wonderful work of reportage. It's a all presses dirty work, essential jobs in the hidden poll of inequality. So press wants to explore this idea of dirty work. That's kind of phrased that he coins here. And these are the often sort of deeply morally compromised jobs that someone in society is doing so that the rest of us quote unquote good people don't have to. And to give more grounding to this. He looks at three worlds in particular at the guards and therapists working in prisons who are handling mentally ill people. It drone operators conducting deadly operations by remote control. And also workers on the kill floors of meat processing plants. These are the three worlds that he enters very deeply. The most important contribution of this book I could say is to give us a sense of this other inequality in America, this notion that there are some people forced to take these jobs or that feel for state these jobs that we don't want to think about. But are at the same time necessary. And the other thing he does so well is he gives us this concept of moral injury. We don't really like to imagine or do imagine that an American society there are people that are suffering because they have to follow orders, orders that go against their moral compass, essentially. But he shows us that there are and we can step away from this book or I stepped away from this book, feeling like you shouldn't be looking away from them. And that you really need to grapple with the position that they're in. Well, thank you. Greg, personal favorite. Sally Rooney's beautiful world where are you? Encapsulates kind of where she is in her career right now. Sally Rooney is a young iris novelist. This is her third novel. And she has had to bear a burden of extra textual theme since her first novel conversations with Friends landed. And she was hailed as the voice of a generation, her subsequent book, normal people was turned into a very successful streaming TV show. And so throughout her very young, very short career so far, she has had the weight that outside apparatus of celebrity placed on her and beautiful world where you as a novel that for the first time now grapples with that. It's a novel about a friendship between two young women. One is a very famous young novelist named Alice. And her friend and kind of intellectual peer Eileen works as an assistant at a small literary journal in Dublin. The meat of the book is these long email exchanges between them about the nature of art, the nature of fame, whether novel writing is frivolous or whether it can sustain a culture, whether it has any role in culture with all of the distractions going on. Sally Rooney grapples with capitalism, late capitalism, and its role in her character's lives. This is a book that goes there as well. It's a book that about 60 pages in I told my 16 year old daughter, I think you would really love this. And maybe 15 or 20 pages later, I said, you're not allowed to read this until you are 40, because it's also a book that is very sexy. It's very effectively sexy. It's a book that veers into eroticism in the relationship that the writer Alice gets into with a warehouse worker that pulls in a lot of the themes of class and capitalism that she's also playing with. In some ways is a very naval gazing medical, famous novelist, writing a novel about a famous novel. But Sally Rooney writes beautiful unadorned sentences that filter what you sense is her real life into art by playing with these bigger ideas. John, over to you. I want to talk about Christine's smallwood's debut novel, the life of the mind, smallwood is written very accomplished cultural criticism for many years. And this is her first book, which is always kind of a brave move for critic to make. This book is about Dorothy and adjunct Professor of English, who is recovering physically and emotionally from a miscarriage, and also dealing with her academic job in what smallwood describes as the decadent Twilight of the profession. This book is just carried along by smallwood's voice. I compared it to the work of Sam lips site and ALF bochum in the sense that she seems like one of those writers based on this first book who uses the novel just as an excuse and a great one for just roving psychological and cultural observation through the eyes of this character. And I flew through it and I can't wait to see what she does in the future. Dave, tell us about your one of your favorites of the year. 2021 was a Friends in year. I feel like he's a comet that comes around, like once every decade or so or once every half decade. And either gets really everyone really excited or pisses them off. This one, I really like. It covers one family, a mother, a father and four children in suburban Chicago in the 1970s. And it's just a richly wrought family drama. But for me, the novel was also about a very important moral question, which is how do we do good in the world without our own self interest kind of getting in the way and ruining our intentions? Each member of the family is struggling with that question in their own way. But we also see it in America around them, which is fumbling its way through Vietnam and through a number of different domestic issues. And friends just able to balance all of that without turning away from the family dynamics. And it was a tough book to put down. And the title is.

"He had to track back sometimes where he wasn't expecting to. And they were able to create some overload in on both sides with the outside backs. So i i think that lack of partnerships was really difficult. So when you change to me when you change both outside backs you can't change both One of the centrebacks. I think you have to keep. And there's certain guys. I think this roster where miles robinson would count as one of them and i don't have. I'm not privy to the conversations. They've had about where they're at physically if you can tell me that robinson and it's not as no disrespect to the to the centre backs that are out there but for me if you can keep your to centreback pairings at all and they have any continuity you try and do that i would say same thing where yunus mussa if you can play him with adams where they played in the first match maybe something a little bit more out of mussa in that one even when you look at the wingers and the striker position just to create some type of partnerships. And i think on the wing play in this specifically They never saw any kind of real relationship. Forming between the wingers and the outside backs. And then i would even add between the outside backs centrebacks. So i'm gonna like i agree with you is disconnected. But i'm gonna push back on that because the one thing we saw from the first phase of games as teams that didn't rotate got annihilated at the third game including especially honduras. Obviously but mexico's struggled in that third game because totta didn't really rotate a bunch rotated today wall and he. Yeah but like i. I get what you're saying gala in part of me agrees with you but the other thing to remember is that this is an important game. It's more important to have miles robinson. Anne tyler adams and anthony robinson and searching dust healthy and ready and good to go for the game because if you win your.

"NPR news. And this is Casey ar W on Larry Parole. Thanks for joining us. You know, the Bob can't fire in the Angeles National Forest has been burning for a week and a half, and now firefighters are finding they are losing ground. Rather than gaining any upper hand. The fire has burned more than 41,000 acres and is just 3% contained and some foothill communities like Arcadia and Sierra Madre. Have seen evacuation and evacuations and others are on high alert in the historic Mount Wilson Observatory is also being threatened as we speak for the latest on the fire. We'll turn now to case your W's. Benjamin got leave. He joins us live. Hi, Benjamin. How's it going, Larry? It's going great. Thank you. Ah, so tell us we're watching the flames get closer to the Mount Wilson Observatory. It's an important facility for science, also part of Southern California history. What's the latest on protecting it? Yeah, Larry, we've been following the story now throughout the afternoon into the evening hours and the fate of Mount Wilson the observatory at this moment, It's really unclear mean right now, the U. S Forest Service says the fire is within a couple 100 ft. Of the buildings over their personnel that work in the observatory have been evacuated. That happened last night. Firefighters are putting up a staunch defense. There are significant resource is that have been committed. In fact, about an hour ago, A C 1 30 from Sacramento actually made some drops near Mount Wilson, and it's working with the ground resource is the cruise that air they're trying to halt the spread of the fire. But remember, firefighters and firefighting resource is Larry are spread so thin across the state of California we've got more than two dozen major wildfires burning, so it's unclear if there's enough resource is to really stop these buildings from burning. So you were out in the foothill communities today, checking in with some residents who are evacuating or are under evacuation warnings. One of those communities is Monrovia. What's the mood there? You know, the mood was somewhat somber, Gloomy is the word I would use to describe it, and especially for those in Monrovia. It's been a really tough slog, and there's little to no relief in sight, right? I mean, that includes all the smoke that's over the area. This fire it might burn for another month and a half. They're saying it could be burning until October, 30th. That's really disconcerting for someone like Tiffany Johnson that she lives south of Foothill Boulevard, and she's not at risk of losing her home. Really. But she says the smoke has been almost unbearable, even just going to the store. You get out the store. I have had headaches. Maybe for the past seven days, maybe one day. I haven't had a headache. If you can tell everyone's just kind of frenzy irritated. It's just sad point where people are now feeling like, okay, here we go, something else on top of what we've been dealing with. And what she's referring to, of course, is the pandemic. I spoke with several other residents in the Monrovia area. Some are actually planning to leave for an extended period of time, perhaps weeks. So the air quality is bad all over the region as you mentioned, But what was it like a. You get more closer to the fire. I mean, you were there this morning. Yes. So I was out in the San Fernando Valley in Sherman Oaks. And when I drove out this morning, Tio Foothill communities you Khun really notice a difference Once you crest past Eagle Rock and head into Pasadena. That's when it really starts to get thick. You smell that campfire smell and it gets even worse Is you kind of venture up into the foothill communities in the mountains. I mean, I actually toured This morning, one of the areas where fire crews are doing well in Monrovia. This is the Spanish Canyon area. It's up in the mountains. If you're not familiar with that area, it's near Monrovia Canyon Park. Very popular hiking area. No buildings have been burnt up there. But there's a lot of scorched earth. You can see where firefighters had to put out some hot spots, and you know what's happening. Right now Up there is there's not many people out, Larry. I mean, very few people walking around on DH. It's incredibly smoky. It's hard to even be outside. So why is this fire have been such a hard one to get a handle on? As I mentioned? It's been burning now for more than a week, and it's been hard to contain. Yeah. I mean, the recipe for hard to contain fires is pretty uniform, right? I mean, you got an area this part, This part of the Angeles National Forest hasn't burned in decades. That's part of it. Also factor in California's drought We had a few years ago. We just got out of that, but a lot of trees didn't make it so they're just Timber up there tinder waiting to burn. And in addition to that, we had a really high heat and low humidity. We continue to see that for days now and when you combine that with where this is burning in the foothill communities up into the Angeles National Forest Full of canyon areas. It's rugged. It's hard to get into. It's hard to put out and so firefighters really having a tough time dealing with that terrain, and also the winds, they keep shifting its really a recipe for a difficult firefight. Larry that makes it unpredictable, for sure case your W's. Benjamin got leave many thanks. Anne Tyler..

Ah, lot of people are waiting and a lot of Teenagers getting their license for the first time like they're excited. They're getting their license. Obviously, they're getting it for the first time, but they're excited to get their license on DH there getting turned away and parents are camping out. That's their cabbage Patch story. That's what it is. 1 800 to 831 A 1.5. Let's go, Teo Caitlin in Flemington, You're on New Jersey one A 1.5 Hi, Caitlin. Hi. How are you guys? Good having, you know, you work at a dealership. I do? Yeah. Um, so throughout the whole covert thing Well, so, for the most part, you could do motor vehicle online with dealerships. Um With a certain program that you can use what you can do but our vehicle like you people played registration things like that Something because sent in, but that's a few and far between, so I they would've used off this entire time. But I get emails regularly from the state from the D. M V. And what I find interesting is that back in March, they gave everyone extensions on temporary tags. Um, driver's license renewals, instruction stations, stuff, everything like that. So I think they should be doing is everyone who expired back in March when the started should be able to go first and then Franklin out through that they either wouldn't extensions anyways. That makes sense. Yeah, Imagine that somebody makes sense and the government can't figure that out. Imagine Yeah, I find it really interesting. I mean, some people are still OK now like if your temporary tag or your driver's license your inspection on your car expires like Let's say in May, right You're still good until the end of July. Why not let people who was fired back when this whole thing started Go first. Yeah, agreed. I mean, and it takes nothing other than the look at your license or registration or whatever it is you renewing and go. Okay, You're you're march. So you come in. And how about putting that out? Everybody who expired needs something done from March, Come in. And then when that's all done, you know that you go to the next month, and now everybody who's Ah, April come in, makes sense. Imagine that. I understand. People are going to rush to the D m V. Not like you just opened to the public like Let's go get everything done right now. Get everything taken care of perfect. You know, we're golden. But It's not that so I give you expire on your license. No. Normally you go the month and it expires. Don't rush. You know, months before months after you, you know you planned it out. So just do it now shouldn't have to be waiting in line for hours Narrows Alice was to get turned away. When really, it's just, you know, thinking on your feet for two seconds. Yeah. Alright, Caitlin, you make a lot of sense. Thanks. So much for calling into New Jersey one a 1.5 and that's somebody making sense. Can you imagine, though, if you could do it on my like, maybe you're just not on low stomach. Most of can be that. Meanwhile, the driver's license in the registration can be done online. I would imagine if these air I don't know what they're doing other than getting new licenses. I What do you go to DMV takinyou. But Rich even said who called in last hour that Maybe he could have done online, but he couldn't figure it out. But can you imagine, like getting through and then for them to say to you? Sorry, we're not going to take you because you can do it online. Like I know that would stories that I've heard story. I've people waited. It got there, and they wouldn't That's really like, Let's say they're they direct you to be to go back on line like you have to do it That way. It wouldn't know. Yeah, maybe wouldn't surprise. Okay, okay, because I can't see that happening because You could do it either way. I mean, if you if you want to go wait in line. Go ahead. But you can renew your registration. See online, so that okay, That's a little reassuring. But can you imagine if that happened? It would be awful. Like you finally got up there in their legs. Sorry, or you hear those stories where it's like you're in line to, and then you finally get out there and they're like, Sorry. Line 10 or your time. Six and then line is twice as long in the other right. Like you got it. You know you did that. You know, when used to have people going postal it you're gonna have people going envy seal her sin.
