"Gale Jones imagine that. As Gail Jones publishes novel after novel at the moment, incredible. I think we inspired her, don't you think? Yeah. William. He's got one coming out too. And she made a cameo appearance on a priest miss not so priest episode as well, which was great. Johnny. The book we're here to discuss is the crying of lot 49. The second novel by Thomas pynchon, first published in the U.S. in 1966 by JB lippincott and co, although excerpts that appeared the previous year in esquire and cavalier magazines. Its first UK publication was in 1967 by Jonathan cape. Usually described, we might come on to this as a classic of postmodern fiction, it follows the attempts of a young Californian woman oedipal mass to make sense of why she's been made executives of a former lover's estate. As we will doubtless discover, the book is impossible to describe succinctly. It's a brilliant and intricate satire in 60s America a gripping page Turner, a literary hall of mirrors which scorches its way into the reader's consciousness through the strange beauty of its language, your destiny of its ideas and the zaniness of its plot and characters. Anyway, before we start comparing notes on jacobean tragedy or trolling Instagram in search of muted post horns, Andy, what have you been reading this week? So I've been reading a book that came out last year by art former guest on blacklisted Susie boyt. It's her 7th novel and it's called loved and missed. And. Susie said something to me after we recorded the episode. John berry man, wasn't it? John berryman and the dream songs, and Sam, I know you're a big fan, aren't you? We were talking about what the role that alcohol and addiction played in berryman's life and work. Both those things, life and work. And she said to me, you know, my novel that I've.

I became the first African American students that were ever in that. So were ninth grade The very first assembly the principal gets up and says I understand. There's a girl here that can play piano. Her name is Gail Jones. We're going to ask her to come up and lick. I was nervous. This was my first time being insured. These up close and personal the White America Lonning I. I knew I knew we in our city. I knew when I wrote the regular city bus. I needed to sit in the back as a child. I knew that I couldn't sit in the front. Because that was not reserved for colored people. I knew about color. Water fountains restroom facilities. That were less. They end for Looks like me. I grew up not ever going to arrest shop because there was a place that would serve him. I remember growing up knowing to my doctor will People come around to the side door. Only white people come in through the front so I knew that so ran. I got a chance to go to this academy. I'm saying these are my cells. They have been to Christian friends. Shirley things will be different so I called up to play at the assembly and all my new classmates just jumped in sheer And I was like. Oh Kay wonderful. I realized then that gift of music was going to open doors and make room for me. Where something else would not so. I enjoy making wonderful friends friends. Who had blond hair and reate here and Brunette hero various shades because that was not something. I was accustomed to I remember. Running homeboy first day of school month is so how was it? How mom there's so many different shades a pair and I color or I didn't know that so I loved it and I'm adventurous. And I find found myself. D- join making friends with people and they enjoy making friends with me but I did experience some issues. I remember my tenth grade year. We had a special assignment to go out and pass out tracks And for as many tracks as you pass out you could increase your grade. Average in the Bible flat really. Yeah so I was excited at wet dot. You know. The next day was the they were driven out with school. So that I could go in. I was told by both my homeroom teacher and the principal that I could not go. They were afraid for a black girl to be in the crowd with White Students in Memphis Tennessee. And so I could not get the extra credit and the teacher says it doesn't matter because besides you have a average anyway. That's not what bothered me. What bothered me was my friend. Sitting next to me has c average and today he had a day effort that bothered me because he never studied. Didn't he didn't do the work in our realize they're always going to be inequality is always going to be injustice but I need to not let that stop me from being low us and stopped me from pursuing greatness so I would law on through it I could sit there and be angry or tried to speak out or do something so I just get rolling Left Ear Inn went to highland academy is important to the sea just above forty miles or so north of Nashville when I arrived I've witnessed because my my friends from Mrs Junior Academy we're going. There was just agile segway. I had so many wonderful phrase I wanted to continue going to school with them so while highly handy. I realized quickly I mean within the first five minutes I was. The only black student built like a chocolate chip in vanilla ice cream factory. Were you the first one and I was there. And they made up a rule in the handbook for me. They knew are coming. And there was the rule that said bow shalt not wear any outrageous hairdo such as Afros. Sure yes sir So I wore as many as I cool but I enjoyed my highland academy experience. I learned some valuable lessons. I didn't let Racial inequality stopped me from pursuing what I knew I needed to do. I was there to get my education. Most of the students were very tied in very gracious but Getting their upbringing and background literally would not fit next to me. Wouldn associate with me and talk with me because he had some know racial slurs and some derogatory words for me but I knew I could rise above that because I knew I was gonna see. My parents raised me to believe that I was no less or new better than anyone else that we all lit blue cross. And everybody's blood was the same color. Jesus die for all of us and so. I just didn't let what their ignorance. I didn't have to be direct because they understand. One particular incident was a principal of my academy calls me in for playing for Chapel. The song was Oh when the saints go marching. You allow me. Platelet yes please. It was chapel on that Thursday and the students love this song because I would lay it with all my heart so it goes.

"The saxophonist. David Murray performing the memorial for Tony Morrison at Saint John The divine bovine in New York. This is democracy now. I'm Amy Goodman Tony. Morrison was the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature. She also won a Pulitzer Prize as we continue to bring you excerpts from her memorial we turn now to David Ramnik editor of The New Yorker magazine. Gene Toni Morrison's earliest work did not reach a wide audience. Not right away. But it's fair to say that with time the world caught on so you could talk a good sized warehouse with all the prizes and certificates and honorary degrees and medals. That came her way but she kept the very very best of it in her guest bathroom to frame documents. One near the sink and the other nearby the first was Nobel Prize Diploma as bestowed in Nineteen ninety-three by the Swedish Academy the the second the second was a letter dated nine hundred ninety eight from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Justice announcing that her novel Paradise had been banned from the State's prisons paradise the Texas authorities. This declared quote contains materials that any reasonable person could construe as written solely for the purpose of communicating information mation designed to achieve a breakdown of prisons through inmate disruption such as strikes or riots. Think of it the idea that a novel could cause an uprising and Tony wants put it smiling. How powerful awful is that? Powerful is one way to describe. Tony Morrison her presence. Her talent her voice were and remain unforgettable powerful awful and as much as any artists of her time she shaped how we thought how felt what we read what we teach each how we see each other and how we see this troubled country it is as I say a very humbling thing to speak about her and her men's legacy galaxy it was certainly a humbling thing to call her on editorial business. I once ranked Tony to see if she might write something something for the magazine. She seemed not to care very much about my editorial desperation. I can't honey honey. She said I'm baking a cake. Now how long it takes to bake a cake was not something the thing I was prepared to ask her. She knew the score. Tony Morrison began her life and letters as an editor. She did it to to pay the bills but she also found a way to bring honor originality and political purpose to that job she respected protest. But she did not March. She edited and that was for a time. Her political work published a revolutionary ALMANAC called the black book. So the kind of family scrapbook of three Hundred Years of American black life and she brought to life in theology of contemporary African American and African African literature work that it helped to shape her and that she wanted you to read. She brought forward the work of Gail Jones. Tony Kate Bombard Angela Davis and a gifted and original young poet named Mohammed Ali. Aw Editing was a job but it was also her activism her community work and yet in those days Tony's most profound work was furtive. It took place at home in the dark beginning at four or five six in the morning while her young sons were fast asleep so she knew precisely what you wanted to do. She wanted to write about black people. Four black people in the language of the various languages which is up black people and this struck her as no more or less peculiar then tolstoy who wrote in Russian about Russians and four Russians and as a reader. She noticed long before. Most academics have black. People were barely visible in nearly all of the novels of the American Renaissance Po and in thought Hawthorne she was determined to assert the primacy the complexity. The specificity the the pain the beauty in the endurance of African Americans and not have to go about explaining it. All all the time to anyone else White readers were welcome of course just as French readers were welcome to tolstoy but as she told her good friend Hilton. All's my sovereignty and authority pretty as a racialist person had to be struck immediately and so on those stolen early morning hours she worked and reworked a manuscript about about a young girl who was consumed with tragic self hatred and her name. SPECULA- BREEDLOVE I. I wanted to read a book about the most Vulnerable Person In society female child black and it wasn't around so I I started writing it. She said and the result of course was the bluest eye then came Soula then came song of Solomon and it was at that point that the artists no longer had to work an office job. She was free Toni. Morrison's novel are not only about subjects about race in its construction about family and community friendship and love about all that human they are also exquisitely exquisitely built their like music. There is intricately structured as an Ellington sweet countless passages featured the crafted after chaos and the intentional dissonance indignity of felonious Monk Solo other passages or as purely melodic and and his fearless as something by her favorite singer. Nina Simone at a celebration of Nita Simone's life fifteen years ago at Carnegie Hall. Tony said a simone what so many readers have come to say of Tony Morrison. She saved our lives. She led us to believe with little true to life evidence to support it that we could do it. Fight injustice rather than suffer it survive loss come to terms with trail be brutally honest disarmingly tender have regrets minus apology and not just taste the fullness of life so but drink it down Tony. Morrison was also an invaluable thinker her capacity to see this country for what it is you to see our best and worst political actors for who they are was uncanny just after Election Day in two thousand sixteen the Editors of the New Yorker call on a number of writers and thinkers among others to make sense of the inexplicable. It was not an explicable to Tony. Any Morrison this time thank goodness she was not baking a cake she emailed back regarding the future. I am intellectually weaponized weaponized. Then she wrote this about the election of Donald Trump so scary or the consequences sort of a collapse of white privilege that many that many Americans have flocked to a political platform that supports and translates violence against the defenseless As strength these people are not so much angriest terrified with the kind of terror that makes knees tremble as an editor as a thinker and a novelist. Toni Morrison refused to allow racism to overcome her racism. She said keeps you from doing doing your work. It keeps explaining over and over again. Your reason for being somebody says you have no language and you spend twenty years proving that you do somebody says your head is in shape properly so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says that you have no art. So you dredge that up. Somebody says that you have no kingdoms. And you dredge that up. None of it is necessary there will always be one more thing. Tony Morrison struggled against the hate and she was fearless. Uh but she also refused to get lost to lose her sense of mission. She carried through on the promise and the mission that she embarked on a half a century ago with the bluest list. I great novelist illuminate worlds. We dimly no were they explore new realms of experience that had been sequestered from from the cannon that is great novels either. Open a door or they turn on the lights. Tony Morrison did it all. She opened the door. Hello and she turned on the lights. That was New Yorker editor. David remnant as we go back now to Oprah Winfrey who concluded the evening coming celebration of Toni Morrison's life. I'd like to close the evening with an expert from Song of. Solomon I have any favorite passages when it comes to Tony's body of work when that you just shared Kevin. She's a friend of my mind from beloved. I love that Momma Emma. Did you ever love us. And the mothers response in Soula but this one from Song of Solomon Solomon never fails to inspire off offer the and for that and so much else I say thank you to the singular monumental gallant brighter. He had come out of nowhere as ignorant as a hamlet and broke.

"The bears defense that the best to get the cowboys lawsuit I said that man you can't give up the big play action pass with big chunk past the explosive passes I need to give up any and they got to continue with that mindset against the Packers that's really going to hinder off the attacker I think that the first in mind up another bowl right down the road at the tractor seat that's right down the middle of it because that's the weakness of their defense right now I think that nagging kind of got into a group if you need to be very tactical with how he goes about this I would reduce the split the party he was making progress but there's still a lot but bring the cost of those offices are closed the corners of the factors are really good unless they can't get your hands off their hands on that day they become a much less much less of an impact so that's something that the offense yeah we're talking to Dan Orlovsky he's our guy each and every week and the ten o'clock hour on Tuesdays as we talk about the previous bears game in the upcoming game so who are you picking to win this game you always have a pretty good handle on what the exes and ohs tell you what a team can do yeah but I don't know the phone last week of the man I I want to pick the bears so they do it I was really impressed so I know going to land those that I'm aware of that but I think that right now there's one team playing better than the other I think the fares are playing better than the actors and I think that means will only go so long with getting away you know there's a saying in the NFL winning covers ever here's everything no it doesn't winning covered everything and while you're waiting you can cover up some of the things that are going on with your football team I think that might be happening in Green Bay I know Erin said that he's okay with an ugly no he's not he's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time he doesn't want ugly when she had standard so I think that there's a point that football I think the bears how to finding the group I think the bears their head coaching a quarterback are very aware of that while winning is the most important thing very next one in line is making sure that they answer the question tied to their job security in the future so I think the bears you have a good chance to go to Green Bay won the day what that would be it if that happens and there's some way that the Vikings could lose another game I know they've got to play the Chargers who are playing much better football it sets up a real interesting match up a week from now week from Sunday with the bears and the chiefs lock horns at Soldier Field what was your thought on the line manning last night because the old man had to play with Gail Jones out and the old man white did win the football game boy he looked like a kid again he was having so much fun out there yeah I I think he's a great story of a person being a professional and a person putting others before them I mean you like a very very much so handle it differently or whatnot but I do think you saw that childhood joy in the game of football and having some success he works pretty well I don't think that he thought I was the reason that the giants lost football games so for god that has that I'm not a factor but I want to start somewhere next year not certain either a step in the right direction with that being the potential opportunity for him but I just just the happiness of being in there and then the respect that I thought the eagles players Padian after the game no problem getting in line to take it that the opportunity to check it out I thought was very classy I and of course if it was you know one of the reasons why football surgical again do you think Eliza plant somewhere next year you think is right up into the sunset with his money and his kids as wife no I do you know what I mean I think I from what I heard last night you know you like that like I'm not a back up I want to continue to play and I think that this league is is always looking for people that can be a very impactful in the organization whether it's on the field for a young player that he goes to get the word out so I would have said this a couple weeks ago but I think there's a chance that you like those in play summer yes if you think Philip rivers this plate somewhere else next year wherever that is because he's not a back up either the fact that anyone right I need filters been Sandiego from the jump and I don't know so it's ready to leave San Diego obviously he has his family which is big and numbers are but I don't think he's got the competitive drive to just walk away right now I think bill is going to play somewhere else is well I think it's gonna be a very unique situation where no tell a few light breeze no no no no what those guys are going to be back in just the competitiveness that's a man have a great rest of your day and I will look forward to talking to you next Tuesday and hopefully it's previewing a big bear's chiefs matchup like that have a good day there you go Dan Orlovsky he and I were texting and then on the phone during the bears cowboys he was excited for how Mitchell Comiskey was planned as I was he's like dude I am so fired up for bid she looks so good I know he's got that ability and I'm so happy for that kid how come he didn't make any Twitter videos of him yelling the there was that excited like you because he's nobody was excited as excited as you except for Ryan pace yeah that's part and maybe Comiskey's girlfriend maybe maybe I doubt she was even this is excited yeah I was fired up and you know you could say that I jumped off the bandwagon five weeks ago when he was struggling yeah and I may again if he goes out is awful this week so take that three one two three three two three seven seven six is our phone number Jesse Rogers going to join us in mere moments and then a few minutes into it Jeff past sins gonna come from TV

"Slash NPR this is morning edition from NPR news I'm David green and I may tell Martin American writer Toni Morrison died yesterday she was eighty eight years old the only American to win the Nobel Prize in literature since John Steinbeck back in nineteen sixty two and the first black woman to do so her work explored the African American experience in the open wounds of racism in this country here she is speaking on CBS what are you without racism I am a girl I still strong still smart is to like yourself I mean these are the questions it's part of it is yes the victim how terrible it is fitting for black people like I'm not a victim I refuse to be one Rachel Causey guns are profiled Toni Morrison in twenty fifteen for New York times magazine and I sat down with her to talk about Toni Morrison's legacy and what the writer meant to her personally for me and for so many people Toni Morrison is one of the most towering figures in American literature and that's not an overstatement I mean to say that she's iconic through that she's vanguard to see that she's pulled is to only top slightly towards her presence as an absolute genius when Tony Morrison wrote song of Solomon and salon jazz and all of her her novels which she really did it show the world that black America had an interiority and what she did in her capturing of all those details of that she really gave us a record of jester and custom and being and belonging but I think wouldn't have been explicated in that way without her writing how did she permeate the culture as a writer because it was a long time coming I mean more some publishes her first work at thirty nine and before then she had been working at Random House where she had published books by Muhammad Ali him we do mas Angela Davis Huey P. Newton Tony came from bar and Gail Jones and one of the things that she keeps saying as she's working with Gail Jones manuscript is that no other novel about a black woman will ever be the same after that said I think that in some ways she's almost presaging her own work after we start to read Morrison I think we all got a sense of just how good our language was just how powerful black vernacular was and until she did what she did I don't think that we really had a testament to that and in changing the world I think she change the world just by being so genius and after that you couldn't come to the table with anything less than what she was offering because she became the standard she's the metric and yet the establishment was reticent to acknowledge for greatness always can you talk about this letter so in nineteen eighty eight a group of black authors thinkers forty eight of them published inside a statement in the New York times and basically what they were doing was operating the publishing industry for what they called the oversight and harmful Wimsey towards more sand and James Baldwin they were particularly upset that after five novels that we now look back on as being seminal moments in American literature Toni Morrison had yet to win a national book award our Pulitzer Prize it was very important to them that they recognize her and two months later what happened is that Toni Morrison was awarded the Pulitzer for the love it I think what we know that the love it does is that for the first time we got to hear a black woman talking about the experience of slavery as something that happened to the body but also something that haunted us for ever and I think what they were basically demanding is that she could no longer be rendered invisible I mention that you profiled her for the times magazine you describe her as one of your own literary heroes how did you first find your way to her writing I think so much of Morrison's about transgression the first time I've found Morrison's writing with because I was a voracious reader after I learned to read and so I was actually going to my mother's books and I was reading things like Madame Bovary and anything I could get my hands on the more salacious sort of the batter across jazz and I'll never forget that she begins at book with the sound of someone clicking their teeth and I said what is this and I was talking to a friend this morning and she said thank you Tony Morrison for all the work we've read that we didn't understand but we understood before we knew what she was saying and I think when I read jazz I understood all of the woman who did that story understood all the violence that story and I understood all the sexuality in that story and what Morrison did is that she made it very very real she also made it acceptable so more thing could make the spaces that would seem sort of looming and heavy and and Graham very very very very very viable I thought this morning of something check off says check of writes about moss and the Siegel of that I'm in mourning for my life and I think when I think about the loss of twenty Morris and I feel like I'm in mourning for my life because she gave me the world she gave me the universe and I think she did that for a lot of us what do you remember most about the time you got to spend with her for the profile V. thing I remember most in the thing I would like to mention is that I'm thinking of her granddaughters I'm thinking of her sons I'm thinking of her as a real woman not just this author I'm thinking of all the people who love to her editor Errol McDonald I'm thinking of them because Morrison was so incredibly generous and she was never not telling stories and I imagine that that absence is going to weigh on them very heavily as time passes and I think all of us will think that we've lost someone that she's no longer with us but I think what Morrison did is that she left us these words in these words will stay with us forever and and thank god for that losing her is a profound thing and would be at any time and it feels the wound feels deeper right now because of where America is high and because of the truth that she was able to eliminate about racism in this country what do you want people to glean from her work in this moment why why do you think that losing her now is such a wound one of my favorite things that Morrison said is that we don't need anymore writers the solitary heroes we need her wrote writers movement assertive militant and put in a sense and I think losing more so now we lose a sort of role model for being bold for being that dynamic and for knowing that the language can be political that the language is necessary and that language is freedom and I think that as we go forward as writers and thinkers and intellectual thing that we have to do is to to speak with clarity and not let anyone sanitize our voices and our thoughts but also to have the freedom to say the space right here is mine in this writing is where I'm free and no one can tell me what to be and I think when I think about how to be like more center had on her I think thing I want to do most is to continue to write on a simulated black literature that lifts up the love for the people who love for the culture the love for the resistance that we embody in this country as a historical project we took out the contact remembering the life of Toni Morrison thank you so much thank you it's NPR news this is WNYC in New York I'm Richard hake good morning it's.

"They they have a season to get ready DeWayne Haskins to get ready because he lies going to play. I still think that drew lock and Daniel Jones are the guys to keep an eye on moving up in somebody really going in all in on one of those two, and I still think I talked to Jay Bilas about Daniel Jones. Daniel Jones went to. Jay Bilas coach team in a Jay Bilas told me at the final four Daniel Jones is athletic enough to play for Duke basketball. He could have he could have played on the team this year. That's how good athlete he is. And Bill said he's as tough as any kid. I've ever been around. He said, he broke his right, arm, wrist or hand, something and he's right handed. He played left-handed in Jay said he was still the best player on the floor. So I think Daniel Jones, and then there's a relationship with ally. Manning that that's the one I keep hearing. I haven't seen it printed anywhere. And there's you know, nothing to go on other than a scout saying Daniel Jones ally, David cut cliff the coach at Duke that relationship cut cliffs relationship with Peyton Manning. And that you have a guy that ally would love to I'm sure bring along and mentor. So that's what I keep hearing. I saw where Mike Florio pro football talks. He can see five quarterbacks taken in the first round. So if that's the case, I got Cuyler Murray. I got Daniel Jones. I got drew lock. I got Haskins. Then you got Steadham. Will Greer anybody else? Mclovin. Northwestern Thorson got hurt. Yeah. Yeah. There's a couple other the big kid out of buffalo that you. I I like him allowing Jackson. Yeah. I like him a lot. He's he's pass at six six mar. I know I know when you watch buffalo football this year. And yes, I watched buffalo football this year. You would see this guy, and you go, wait a minute. He's like in the too big to play against the you know with these guys against these guys. I mean, he was just a massive quarterback. Yeah. Mclovin. It's a pretty amazing basketball draft. He's drew lock was a big time D one recruit Gail Jones was was recruit and anti Jackson played high school basketball. So I don't know what that does anybody. Yes. Phone go met the report you had about Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins Dwayne Haskins in college was a seventy percent passer Daniel Jones with a sixty percent passer. But what do doing Haskins has accuracy issues? I think just. Off what you said what they do is some Bill rate. Your accuracy of is there any is there any of protection issues? Your accuracy issues of is the guy wide open the because you would get great numbers with the big twelve quarterbacks. And that's why you didn't know if it would translate into success in the NFL be like everybody's open. That's the thing. When I watched the Michigan game with Ohio State in Haskins. Those receivers were wide open on northwestern. I felt like they were wide open and that so then it's a little bit harder to get a better gauge of just how good Haskins has. But he's viewed as a project here. I always, you know, the scouts said when you get him off his spot. Then, you know, then you know, that you know, he can have some issues. They're not that. That's not the case for everybody here. Yeah. Mclovin. It's so weird because we used to hold the spread quarterbacks. Never did anything the NFL for the longest time. It was all the pro style. Guys. I did Baker Mayfield just sort of end that for good. The short spread quarterback. Well, I think Russ did. I think Russell Wilson. I think he was pro style though. Yeah. He runs more of a spread in college or a pros than he did in college. It feels like there's like off Jared Goff came from the air raid. Yeah. Back in the day would not even get drafted running that here's the other not bombshell. But I I was told Bob Knight. Maybe moving back to Bloomington, Indiana. The know about that one. Sources close to me. Tell me. Bob knight. Might be moving back to Bloomington Indian, hopefully, there's a basketball game in his future. Just give me one walkout there. Take a bow.

"We like to say in the business, and I was just check in the NFL draft anything new who's going up going down? And this is what happens you normally quarterbacking position where there's somebody who's going to have his meteoric rise. And then somebody starts to slip. So I talked to this NFL Scott. I said, you know, what are you here in first round? And he said, well, your your guy Cuyler still to go number one. But as far as the second quarterback off the board. It's not going to be Dwayne Haskins in his opinion. And I said, well, I've been there saying I just didn't see like, I don't think he can help you immediately. And it feels like the quarterbacking position. We look at it differently used to be you got two or three years. And then you got your chance to start. Now teams GM's say can we get somebody to start? Now. I don't have to pay that quarterback a lot of money because I'm going to have to pay a whole lot in. Five years that everybody knows the blueprint here. Tyler Marie plays right away with zone. I I still think Josh Rosen is on another team. Whether it's before the draft or after the draft. They're just trying to get a first round picks. Nothing's changed there in the information that I've got but I talked to the scout. And. I me read what he said to me. He's a bit of a project saw him libraries northwestern. He had receivers running right by guys. Everybody was open thought he was put up too high too soon. Accuracy issues and overall quickness needs to improve good prospect. We'll take some time. Now, the giants have the six pick. They they have a season to get ready to join Haskins to get ready because he lies going to play. I still think that drew lock and Daniel Jones are the guys to keep an eye on moving up, then somebody really going in all in on one of those two, and I still think I talked to Jay Bilas about Daniel Jones, Daniel Jones.
