"That's a really big question. You see, I don't necessarily think art is there to provide a sense of hope. I know a lot of people do. They think it's a kind of failure of art if it's not pointing away forward. I've never really worked with that belief. I see art as a record rather. I see the job of a novel to present as accurately as possible a picture of how things are rather than a picture of how things ought to be. The way things ought to be is always a signpost to hope in the future, but I don't think it's the duty of a writer to point the way forward. There's, I don't know. The other way is for people to be hopeful. I think artists there to help us see things more clearly. That was this year's Booker prize winner. Damon galgate in conversation with me yesterday.

Thank you, thank you so much. That's wonderful to hear and I glad you enjoyed. The multi genre aspects I was very attached to them when drafting. Yeah, let's let's start at the beginning. Tell me about your own background I. Well, I am half Indian half. British and my family from Singapore we off the generation Singapore, and so that's where you grew up. And that's yes. I was born in. Singapore and I grew up. That and my family still live there now and. It was actually I think my family experiences from both the British and the Asian sides in the Second World War and their experiences with Japan and the Japanese that led me to you. Begin to think that I could perhaps. Write this novel. In that during the Second World War, my Asian family were. In malaria when the Japanese invaded on that by schools, and took the peninsula and Singapore, and they had to hide in the rubber plantations, and my Indian Singapore. Singaporean grandma actually the friend did a Japanese soldier, and taught him English and my grandfather Rochat guide to learn Japanese because you couldn't walk onto the occupation unless you spoke Japanese so both my Asian grandparents learned, and then my English Grand Parent Grandfather for the Japanese in Burma and we've lost lost a great uncle to the death railway in Thailand as well and so they had very different experiences, but growing up in Singapore. Particularly, there is A. Those assassination with Japan that has shifted very much. Since the ocupation and Japanese culture is extremely popular and.

Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre
"Last week's death of former former Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe at the age of ninety five presented his country with a problem if from the worst problem with which Mugabe presented Zimbabwe during he's later decades of deranged misrule. How does one commemorate the passing of a figure who was both hero and villain in Mugabe's case indeed both with the founder and destroyer of his nation after an amount of agonizing it has now been decided that Mugabe will be interred in the National Heroes Acre in Harare Laura a public memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday one joined in the studio with more on this bond monocle twenty regular Georgina Godwin Georgina as our listeners are probably aware you are yourself Zimbabwean and I remember we spoke at the time of Mugabe's removal by coup data at how we had that atwells that he was no longer enough and what an I guess a big mental adjustment that was for generations of Zimbabweans. How are we is it adjusting to the fact that he's no longer here at all. You know I think people feel slightly cheated in a way that he went out really with a bit of a whimper not a bang that we and indeed he probably expected and he's no longer there but I gather that in his last few months. He wasn't all there mentally anyway. If you look at the photograph few months well I I mean from when he started wearing you know dribbles and chuck suits but and obviously as you point out his his last years were were he was in the grip of definitely something probably dementia but for him to be dead is something that's quite odd because what you're seeing in Zimbabwe's as you alluded to is people wanting still to hate him but also really wanting to acknowledge the role that he played in in in the formations the country and say so there's quite a lot of them big dichotomy between how people feel because us as I think we discussed at the time if Mugabe is say had sort of cheerfully stepped down from office circa the late eighties and sort of idled into a retirement of giving elections and writing books he would be regarded as one of the twentieth century's heroic figures wouldn't they completely and utterly and he would have got a hero's funeral. Oh hang on the funeral which does prompt the question though that who who turns up for Mugabe's Hero's funeral thousands of people have been attending the lying in state. At referrers stadium in Harari who still is Mugabe's constituency well at the formal proceedings. You'll have a lot of heads of state state. I think Cyril Ramaphosa is coming from South Africa and various other people from from around the continent impacts further afield but in terms of ordinary people what generally happens in in in situations like this is that people have Boston and their promised food and those are the two things that people have that they don't have any fuel in Zimbabwe so they wouldn't be able to get there by themselves. They don't have the money money for bus fare and they're desperate to eat so if you promise people all of that they will turn up much. I mean I'm sympathetic to an extent extent or to this extent with the current Zimbabwean government. You have to acknowledge his passing some how you have to do something if not not what is being done what other suggestions have people made there was an argument of course to whether he should be buried in National Heroes Acre. But where else would you put him well. He is family. It appeared wanted him buried in his home area of Qatar which is where he comes from and I think would have been one way around it but it appears that the government was really pushing to have him in heroes. Acre which apparently he had not wanted himself. There was another really interesting piece of not not legislation but something else he put in his will. I think which was that his wife Grace Mugabe was to stay with the casket at all times until he was buried therefore what he's doing doing that is guaranteeing her starring role in his final Hurrah. Do you get the sense that the current government and we should remind ourselves that the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was for many years Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's kind of conciliatory if you will are they trying to reanimate the myth of Mugabe the liberator to to their own ends. I think that that would certainly serve a purpose that the end but I mean at the same time time. Mugabe's very useful is somebody that you can up lay all the blame on and say look it wasn't us it was the previous guy where clean we're going forward and of course that's what the what Managua A and his cronies would like us to think that this is a completely new dispensation. It really isn't make no mistake.

K. with the U. S. well it's a subject of extensive conversation my household I have to say I love what I love about the U. K. is there is a much higher regard for all things public whether it's literal public spaces or figure public spaces public benefits like the NHS public schools everything public here seems to be held in in high regard in general politically everything years a giant step to the left but finally enough along with that a high regard for public space there's a certain censorious miss you know in the US we kind of live and let live but I am personally I'm I should say I mostly a law abiding sort but occasionally if that when I'm out on my bicycle I will I will do some things wrong for example I will I get that empty intersection when no one is looking I might run a red light hi fine Brits roll down their car windows to tell me off Hey you do what you're doing you shouldn't do that don't you know anything I get quite a bit of of criticism from just regular old of vigilante is civilians passing by who tell me I'm doing wrong my bicycle and I you would never find that in the U.

A. as you'll hear it often referred to the deal that got around to agree to eliminated stockpile of medium and rich uranium costed stockpile of low enriched uranium by ninety eight percent and reduced by about two thirds the number of its gas centrifuges for thirteen years it was reached in Vienna in July twenty fifteen between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.

U.'s high representative and vice president Federica Mogherini she's also director of the international affairs institute in Rome apps rising off is too strong a term but it's clear that the deal is that I had guessing into increasingly troubled waters a few weeks ago the U. three slash you had announced that the fast transactions old instincts the special purpose vehicles to allow for local trade between the EU and Iran was not only up and running but it would see its first transactions now that hasn't happened it's clear that the own growing escalation take me in the Gulf has been is playing a big part of the reason why the deal in and of itself is it is in in in deeper deeper trouble now of course that escalation in the Gulf it is taking place precisely because there has been a violation of the J.

P. away by the United States has the escalation continues it becomes increasingly difficult a politically in natural to technically to summon the will to essentially see this mechanism follow through with its fast transactions let's break that down in sticks as you say this is the special mechanism the European countries have set up so that they can can continue to trade with Iran without running afoul of US sanctions the truth surely is that many European companies and banks won't go with it because they don't believe it'll work well I think what I would be noble if that happens I mean but I think in some respects we really as a stat for will this coin is stop until we get to that first point it is very difficult to assess the way in which companies would would react and if the deal does eventually succumb completely what does the E. you do then well I think you know the the easiest position is and will continue to be aimed at trying to recreate the political conditions not only for the agreement so that comes back in place but eventually sewing the sort of scenes for a political negotiation with Iran also covering regional masses now it took about twelve years in fact almost thirteen years fool back to produce to deliver a meaning to deliver the J. C. can't wait I mean the point is we know that not only do these things take an awfully long time but that is very unfortunate that records they take a very long time to cheat they take very little time to destroy Nestle touchy with her view of the state of that deal I'm joined on the line by the former French diplomat POV more from twenty ten to twenty fifteen he was secretary general the European external action service the European union's foreign ministry and before that he was France's ambassador to the United States have you more welcome to the program thank you hello thank you for inviting me pleasure increasingly troubled waters is how Natalie taught she saw this deal how do you see it now I think she's absolutely right to it so it's getting more and more difficult to inject a little bit of trust in what has become a major confrontation not Tony between the Americans and the Iranians but now most of the year the parties that have been signatories to the chi C. P. away as we called it I'm finding it more and more difficult to set up some pass that could bring an end to that confrontations so the meeting today in Vienna will try to move forward the time I find this very difficult for the moment as long as the tension is there and that those sites namely the Americans and Iranians are taking initiatives that go exactly against any kind and de escalation what's a device would you offer if they came to you and said miss U. V. more how do we bring this back from the brink what would you say I would rather wait no no to try to answer your question I think I would I would try to advise on the step by step approach to the first one being how to put for the time being some sort of freeze on all the moves that both sides are taking a more sanctions on the American side or threat of new sanctions and on the Iranian side stop the many incidents in the Gulf and the straits of hormones which are creating more and more attention and from their own if we manage to get an agreement on on treating the situation at the tears at the moment then tried to start setting up a sort of road map on which both sides could try to to move along and the setting up the there has been talk as you know of setting up the maritime operation to try to protect the three M. navigation in the Gulf try to lift some of the economic sanctions against Iran then moving to older regional matches or issues that not techie talk she was talking about two different crisis and then moving on maybe to something more ambitious which could be some sort of security pact for the whole region the death would come very much later in but it would be something of that sort and incremental approach that foods at TI so or drink down some of the tension and start to build up some sort of trust between the different sites David Kirkpatrick a thought or maybe a a question to be available well just to play devil's advocate for a moment it sounds like you're fairly pessimistic about saving the deal if the hawks in the U. S. government people executives to Pompeii that actually divisor John Bolton what they would say to you is we're winning right we we have successfully imposed sanctions which are actually causing a great deal of pain right now to Iran and so we see spasms of pain from Iran Iran lashing out of the Gulf around making of the gestures but the truth is our pressure is working and this is the way to get a more restrictive covenant out of Iran what do you say that Amy does seem like as the deal collapses at the moment that collapse may be hurting Iran more than it's hurting Washington well I would say two things first one and I would agree with you I think to a very large extent everyone has to accept that the nuclear deal is I would say is over at the chance to state time and again that we should go back to the deal when it is very obvious that the.

We just did our job, and we put together the thirteen books that we thought were most interesting. Why are people fascinated by your choices? I think that it's partly that we somehow managed without design to have writers from twelve different countries out of thirteen books. So that's one thing and that happened all by itself. And another thing that happened all by itself is for us from our point of view is that almost all of the books are from independent publishers. And so that's quite amazing because it's very unusual for small independent publishers to get a look-in on price lists when I judge the predecessor of the independent Booker that's foreign fiction prize. And that would have been about twelve years ago thirteen years ago. It was not the case. And I remember that we looked at our shortlist in some embarrassment to see that almost more than half of them were published by Christopher Michael hosts and. I think it was before he had his own imprint, but he was such a powerful force in promoting fiction and translation that it wouldn't have been a surprise. But was embarrassing because we were just talking about the books, we weren't looking at to publish at all I in the years since I think when I was judging the foreign fiction prize back in the naughtiest bit not the thing that was to be opened for me was how interesting new growing, independent sector was and as a novelist I felt that they were collectively could collectively putting out more interesting books, then they market driven marketing departments dominated main publishers at the time.

How well you. Equivocal response to Howard Schultz his plans to run for president my guests. Ben Ryland, Georgina Godwin and Kiara Ramona will be discussing this and the day's other top stories, including Zimbabwe's depressing failure to improve a year and more after the removal of Robert Mugabe, the unlikely winner of a strain the is richest literary prize and arguably even less likely media startup that's all coming up on the Dory. House monocle twenty four right now. And world consumer Dory. House. My guest today are monocle twenty four Georgina Godwin, Kiara removal, and Ben Ryland. Welcome all and we will start tonight in the United States and this week suggestion by former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz that he might have a crack at the presidency. Presumably on the assumption that runs for the job by billionaire businessman with no experience of elected office have always worked out. So well before Mr Scholz also appears set on running as an independent candidate doubtless with a view to bequeathing the same sort of legacy to progressive politics for which Ralph NADA and Jill Stein. Both so fund -ly remembered today Kiara first of all how how excited are we by the prospect of Howard Schultz, former Starbucks CEO running for president. I think I speak for my fellow gentlest at the table right now in saying that we're probably not excited because as you rightly highlighted right there. There's a. I don't really think this is the right moment for billionaire without particular political experience be running for presidency. However, I've got to say the all of this possibly because I come from European specifically Italian political background. I can see the appeal of breaking be partisan situation. So staunchly ingrained does is in America. Whether this is the right person to be doing this right now. I don't know Bennett's. It's it's touching verging on quaint that Mr Schulz seems actually surprised by the coast to coast clamor of OD gold knows that has attended. He's announcement of his plans. It is I didn't expect that to settle in in Mr Schulz's mind, quite so quick given that he's traveled this fall without sensing the wind at all I was having a bit of a chat to Jonathan Chait a New York magazine yesterday, and he wrote a wonderful take-down of shelters self-delusion. Let's call. It that to be polite, and he was remarking on how he thinks that shields has made it this fall simply because he surrounded himself with high paid consultants who are willing to tell him exactly what he wants to hear. Because of course, their entire existence their employment existence is resting upon shields continuing to believe that he has a shot at the presidency. And I think that explains a lot of the remarkably bizarre things that he said all over he's meteor appearances this week one of my personal favorites was when he pointed out to the hosts of morning Joe that that there about forty two percent of American voters who identify themselves as independents with well at the same time seeming to fail to grasp that identifying yourself as an independent doesn't mean you part of some sort of other party called the independent party, which he's just parachute himself into as the as the current leader. They could be they could be on the far side of the left on the fall side of the right? They could be anywhere on the political spec. Tremain then not going to simply say, oh, look there's shields. He's an independent. That's me over for him in fairness to how short safari could afford to surround myself with people who spent all day telling me always up -solutely, bloody. Listen should be the leader of the free world. I totally would instead on stuck with you people. Georgina. I've never done quite well to think about this. Because obviously one of the great marvels of American democracies that anybody can have a lash running for president if they feel like it. But if you are somebody who has serious money series heft and series chance of actually treating a bit of attention, perhaps some votes. Do you have a responsibility to worry about splitting the vote because because there is of course, the argument that Ralph Nodar effectively gave the two thousand election to George W Bush that Jill Stein gave the two thousand sixteen one to Donald Trump. But are they not entitled to run for the job?.

"I don't know a lot of the people that are concerned with with that theory of conveniently died so conveniently or not. But it's it's one of these things that I think we can say this is dangerous. This is fake news. People are going to believe this. That is always been the case people people think. Avatars true. So it's it's what's important is that we're discussing what's important is that we're questioning these things and there are blowing realities out there. I'm sure and if a film wants to get hold of it and give it a good shake, then then we're better for it. But I mean in something like vice which is basically entertainment saying this this is, you know, was there anything in there that that really struck? You is factually problematic. No, not really because I mean, the great thing about Dick Cheney is that he is he disappears. Even though he's very very powerful. He's kind of an invisible, man. And I think that that's why ETA McKay was was did such a good job with with this. Because nobody really knew Dick Cheney looked like until Christian bale decided to show us and Christian. Was just weird. But also, the vice president has never been as as as the the movie says has never been a very hands on role. It's always looks a little bit. Like just in case, the president dies, or if he doesn't want to go to an event, the vice will go, and I think it's interesting to see that. It's possible the device could actually get more power than normally allotted. Some people think films about historical figures have a responsibility to the truth similar to newspaper, for instance. But I shouldn't assume audiences cheated should we? Yeah. We, but we should I think I go into a movie you don't want to sit there and have a lesson. You know, you want to be entertained. You wanna be an intrigued an as a journalist? I know that when I'm writing something I choose the facts that I want to use. So I'm not going to give you the whole argument. Number one time number two. I don't have all the facts. In fact, nobody does. So I think it's it's silly to suggest that a documentary is very close to the fact at all because it is a way of showing you a set of facts. So that aside is that a good movie. Should we go and see it? Yes. I was really not looking for it. I'm american. I wasn't looking forward to seeing it. It's hugely entertaining. It's fast. It's pacey. It's funny and it's an eye opener. Absolutely. Karen, Crisanto vich. Thank you very much. Lead. And that's vice which I understand is on on general release at the moment. Not. So we have time for today. Thanks to offer.
