Kosei gave at the dinner at which he'd received received the nobel prize for literature and the day before he delivered quite an esoteric nobel laureate speech and so people were geared up for a second installment of something similar and instead they got this.

Nine and a half. She would probably have senile dementia. She would not know what was going on around here but of course i missed the point. Dorothy was right. My mother would have been bursting with pride. My son the nobel prize winner and for whom anyway do we do the things that lead to nobel prizes. If not for mothers mommy mommy mommy.

"That. I as a person as a personality overwhelmed by the fact of suffering in the world might thinking is thrown into into confusion and helplessness by the fact of suffering in the world and not only human suffering these fictional constructions of mine are paltry ludicrous. Defenses against being overwhelmed. So i think that he put that in princes and i think that's why he writes he's overwhelmed by the suffering of the world and he writes to keep from being overwhelmed. It's a defense against being overwhelmed. Also he is incapable. She say he's he's he's he's such a deeply intelligent writer. I don't think any writer that i know of has questioned what fiction is for what stories are for other for consolation it all his work and he can't he can't allow himself. It seems to me to just to be directly identified with the character thing. He's as you say. He delivers even the animal lectures. He was using elizabeth. Cost sort of fictional as a fictional sort of baffled to keep. I don't think it was. He was trying to hide. But i just think he thinks just saying what you think isn't isn't enough and i think he was very aware that he's writing a work of literature anyway and and he said in some of these interviews well all writing is autobiographical fiction and nonfiction. Because it comes out of the self in fact the writer. The writing writes the writer. He says and he writes a lot of essays as well for the new york review of books and he's a few collections of essays. Stranger shores an inner workings and those one where he reviews book by robert musil. The australian early twentieth century at five women are three women's the title one of the things.

"Been under a lot of strain. I don't think she's in a position to sympathize. Perhaps one could say the same for me. It's been a short visit. I haven't had time to make sense of why you have become so intense about the animal business. She watches the wipers wagging back and forth. A better explanation. She says is that. I have not told you why and dare not tell you when i think of the words. They seem so outrageous that they are best. Spoken into a pill are into a hole in the ground. Like king midas. I don't follow. He said what is it. You can't say it's that. I no longer know where i am. I seem to move around perfectly easy among people to have perfectly normal relations with them. Is it possible. I asked myself that all of them are participating in a crime of stupefying proportions. Am i fantasizing at all. I must be mad yet. Every day i see the evidences. The very people i suspect produce the evidence exhibitors offer it to me corpses fragments of corpses that they have bought for money. It is as if i were to visit friends and to make some polite remark about the lamp in their living room and they were to say yes. It's nice isn't polish jewish skin. It's made of we find that's best the skins of young polish jewish virgins. And then i go to the bathroom. And the soper says treblinka one hundred percent human steerage..

"She's been giving the same old lectures fears. So she's got to that point now where she she wants. She is trying to get to the truth. And i think it is a novelist who wants to get to the truth. But you don't get to the truth by having arguments what arguments do give you though is drama and he manages to build the character around the drama of the sixty seven year. Old woman. Being really fucking annoying in at an academic lunch or on a cruise ship going to an totta or as you say in the hotel lobby where she she tries to tell the west that she's gonna discipline and he reached doesn't say nothing but what i liked about that particular chapters well later on we discover. She has a very strong position on evil. And she says. I don't know if i believe in god but i believe in the devil and she traces it back when she was nineteen in university. She one night she was picked up by a failure whatever and went back to his flash and had drinks whatever and then wanted to sleep with him and he got angry and he beat her up and a broker gel and left in a bit and the clothes learns to her clothes and twenty fell asleep. Shoot back into the room and took our clothes so it was a. She said that that night evil entered her.

I are there executioner and there were told what was going to happen to them their bows would go very graphic description of what was going to happen them and she argued that paul west by writing this entered the hangman's mentality and then let the evil loose in his book and she argues that there are some things beyond eve.

"The presentation of long speech is not just for their own sake but have demonstrations of character or characters is one of the tight robe walks that takes place in the novel. I think and i found totally fascinating a lot of the time. I couldn't work out. Why was so gripped by it because it it's quite abstract in places at the same time you feel a real person making the case whether you agree with it or not so just read the opening and then and then i might ask you to to build on that. There is first of all the problem of the opening namely how to get us from where we are which is as yet nowhere to the far bank. It is a simple bridging problem. A problem knocking a bridge. People solve such problems every day they solve them and having them push on let us assume that however it may have been done it is done. Let us take it that. The bridges built and crossed that we can put it out of our mind. We have left behind the territory in which we were. We are in the fall territory where we want to be.

"Y have you chosen it for us. And when did you first encounter it. And i think i could say used to of these chapters in a slim little book. I think we spread out about nine thousand nine hundred ninety and it was called the lives of animals and he himself had delivered these lectures at princeton as part of the tenor series of election of of lectures. So the the to the chapter took two and three. The lives of animals philosophers in the lives of animals poets. He delivered those two lectures in princeton. He he did that in with the nobel prize as well. He delivers a story and it was the first time he had introduced. Elizabeth costal then a few years later he brought this book and he added more lectures and in fact the one about the the evil the problem of evil he delivered that to lecture at a real conference in amsterdam on evil as well the problem of evil so he these are his lectures but he had constructed the character of elizabeth custody some years before that so i the big draw for me i had read say before that the life times of michael k and maybe one or two others. I didn't have the same poll until this book and john. Banville reviewed the lives of animals that slim and around one thousand nine hundred ninety. I think and i just rushed out bolted. Obviously the surname floored me for a start. My god it's like a sign you know an instant And so i bought that and the the issue of the the way she suffered for the lives of animals was what hooked me to be quite on this with you. I knew instantly our guest. The cut say himself had was concerned with the same issues and had the same sensibilities and sensitivities and then. Dt's he's much more public in recent years about how he feels and humanity animals and each other of course then when the book came out it was. I was in love with that. I've read reread it several times and with each reading i think it in an email. I am floor moments. It has a reputation for being very serious and dry and there are certainly sections especially the long dialogue with herself for dialogue with other guests like the african writer with our sister. Who's non there are long passages with a lot of logic. But i think that her arguments like puts as they're quite clear what she does is she said questions the whole time and it's really about things in life but we do also get a lot about her own life you know. She has a son and daughter in the first chapter. We meet her son. So i think that just so that we don't give an impression that it's all dry arguments about marlin ethical issues. There is very much behind a life lived. She's sixty six as you said. She's written a successful book around joyce's ulysses but she's rare to son ended offer. Her son lives in america. He's academic and she visits and stays with him and his wife and children and that he's a compassionate son but he is baffled by his mother. He's he's absolutely perplexed as what he calls her devotion to this animal business. Just read the opening of the book. Because i feel like that actually sets the tone the character in the subject and before i do that i will say i totally agree with.

"So there you go. That's a hell of a passage isn't it and massive trees and how many people here have read that. Sally ruining already everyone. Wow that is incredible. No that one person. What that that gentleman there did you enjoy it. He said yeah. It was great. They are to to five star reviews. Right very curious joan. Should we go into the main event. Because i think some actually some of the themes in both passages relationship with with animals on our relationship with literary culture are absolutely germane to the book that the mary has chosen. Which is as we said. Elizabeth costello by joan caceres zero published in two thousand three by sacramento in the uk and viking in the us. So now this. I think i'm spoiling nothing. But it is quite challenging mary. It has that reputation. Certainly but i think in the actual narrative of the other writing of. It's very readable. Are incredibly readable agree. So i've asked jones. Do john john take on the challenge. Preparing a description for the audience may not have read normally at this stage in podcast producer. Nikki sadly can't be here tonight would say what's it about and we'll kind of we'll sort of hominoid. So here's here's a paragraph which i'm laying on the table as a as an attempt to say what nikki nikki's question elizabeth costlo. The pomace hero of the novel is a famous australian novelist. Now in her late sixties living in that strange other worldly realm most of a professional life consistent delivering academic lectures or attending awards ceremonies. She still best known for her fourth novel. The house on eccles street in which he liberated molly bloom from her soliloquy joyce's ulysses and gave a new life in agency. This annoys her many things to cruelty to animals in particular. The novel is divided into eight lessons. That's the subtitle anderson with costlo eight lessons rather than chapters built around eight speeches or lectures which elizabeth either delivers or listens to david largest was written. It is a book which begins like a cross between a campus novel and a platonic dialogue segues into introspective memoir and fanciful amusing and ends with a calf guest. Bad dream of the afterlife. In other words it shows at enigmatic genre stretching nobel prize winning best so just that kind of capture any of it for you know very little to add to that roy. We did not join us done but we should mary. Yeah we should ask well. If you're happy with that let me ask you. When did you first discover this book..

"Considerable and literary and it's post off into a realm of popular culture far beyond what we could've imagined for it and i think what sally rooney herself could have imagined for it so as you probably know this book this beautiful world where you which is published. Week has been reviewed absolutely everywhere. I have read no reviews of it. Because i wanted to read the book with no spoilers. No prejudices and no expectations high or low. And i finished it on the plane on the way over and i give it five stalls and i thought it was great they go. That's the that's the. That's the extent of insight. I thought i thought it was terrific. And i think it's about all sorts of different things beautiful world where you but one of the things about and this is really important. I get the sense that sally rooney is putting up with a lot of crap for having become famous in a way beyond her control. And that's not what she signed up for but also if she says any point as she has done interviews. I'm not really enjoying this. I am aware of a lot of people going are. Shut up shut up. You knew what you were getting into. Everyone would want to be famous. Everyone would want to be as successful as you are and it seems to me. One of the things that she does in this book is express the good and the bad sides of that kind of fame an almost unprecedented fame for a young woman. Roy in the type of books that she writes. And i'm just going to read a passage that one of the two heroines of this novel. Whose name is alice. And who is a novelist who has become very successful overnight. Where sally really get harare ideas. I don't know. I thought i wanted to read this out because it seems to me that you cannot listen to this and think you lucky thing. Okay so i'm just gonna read the page. Have i told you. i can't read contemporary novels anymore. I think it's because. I know too many of the people who write them. I see them all the time at festivals drinking red wine and talking about who's publishing. Who in new york complaining about the most boring things in the world not enough publicity or bad reviews or someone else making more money who cares and then they go away and right there sensitive little novels about ordinary life. The truth is they know nothing about ordinary life. Most of them haven't so much as glanced up against the real world in decades. These people have been sitting with white linen tablecloths later in front of the moon complaining about bad reviews since one thousand nine hundred eighty three. I just don't care what they think about ordinary people. As far as i'm concerned they're speaking from a false position when they speak about that. Why don't they about the kind of lives. they really lead and the kind of things that really obsessed them. Why do they pretend to be obsessed with death and grief and fascism when really. They're obsessed with whether their latest book will be reviewed in the new york times. Oh many of them come from normal backgrounds like mine by the way. they're not all children of the bourgeoisie. The point is just that they stepped right out of ordinary life. Maybe not when they first came out maybe it was the third or fourth anyway. It was a long time ago and now when they look behind them trying to remember what ordinary life used to be like. It's so far away they have to squint..

Hailstones didn't alter the complaints they neither lengthened nor deepen them in all weathers all hours of the night that complaints whereas elegant their crests. What sadden means that. There were so frightened of me. I'd only work to walk into the fields and they instantly would come a flock of shimmering 's swiftly swerving flu and then as though quenching themselves they would land further off among the rush is where it no longer be able to see them.

"It's a little little different though, is I would agree with you where you have stable first world nations with experiences in governance, and democracy and freedom and all that good stuff all that jazz in and well developed countries, like Korea, Japan and Germany, and we have formed an international partnership or an alliance to work with one another. Okay, that's one thing. But occupying by force foreign countries in the Middle East and with this sort of haphazard strategy. Maybe we'll stay there for five hundred years, and they'll turn into a jeffersonian. Democracy. Like, that's not a strategy. We owe it to our selves in our country. And we owe to our troops to offer something better than that. Why see that we've connected actually with Peter's wife Kelly on on Skype. Okay. I think it'll just be Peter on with us. But although they're both the co founder of the organization both air force vet so Coetzee get right into it on with us. Peter Gigiri former security forces airforce, airmen and co-founder of forgotten not gone, which is a veteran for purpose organization out of Las Vegas. Their mission is to stop out veteran suicide and find alternative therapy for veterans the other co founder of forgotten not gone Peter's wife Kelly, also former air force, we just got to speak to for a couple of minutes before bringing on Peter. The main thing I really wanna get into today's crate him because the way that I became familiar with. You was from the documentary Lifa faith, Chris bell documentary. But. Before we do. I would love to just get into your background in the air force. And where it all began. When in the air force, just a childhood dream both. My grandfather served in few mouthful served in the military. And so I had the privilege of being a security forces member in that's where I met my beautiful wife. She did security forces as well. And that's how initially everything just started from her our military service. But during that whole process, I got injured, you know, doing that that line of work and my after care of, you know, leaving the military that's one thing starting to spiral out of control in. That's where you know brings us today in the story behind that. And could you tell us a little bit about your injuries? Security forces. So my primary specialty may beginning was a m sixty machine gunner, and we worked in restricted areas. Guarding of the priory a resource nuclear weapons of that nature. And so just the day to day grind carrying a forty four pound weapon. Rucksack the different things that was detail in knees break down your back from that experience mind door and dirt car of Kenya. Pronounce it. My turn system was all thrown all the hormone levels and things like that. But my body just spouted out of controlling all air guy during the military service was narcotics to be able to deal with the disabilities. I didn't get physical therapy rehab things of that nature. And so I started having side effects from actual medicine as well. Start throwing up blood and literally just start getting sicker and sicker for a period. Time until the you know, finding crown. And how'd you get hooked up with Chris bell? When he started this documentary. One of our actually our neighbors who as urban ice owns that company. Mr Kelly done, you know, he has all our nonprofit in his Saint building where we were running our nonprofit out in north laws as and he just always all this riding bikes and one day, he got locked out at his place Indian knocking on her door, and you know. Tell them all the products end up telling them, I was taken that. And he told me he was owner. And it was just a it was just a a blessing to be able to meet him. But just the way we met in which is a it was weird. Just you get locked out of his house, but from from that period of time, I was able to meet the owner of organic ice, and I was already taken his product year prior to that. And so since that point he started donating to our local veterans..
