James Gunn With Hit the Lottery Despite Disgusting Tweets

"Done is about to hit the fucking lottery. Part of the problem is you can't avoid grunge last two films where goddamn money makers. The first two Guardians of the Galaxy films grossed just under $2 billion. That means this guy could almost put shit on toilet paper and it would get a green light. He could still work again if he handed that in to a top fucking studio head. But even though he won't direct the third film, Disney is still using the script he wrote for the third film. And that means he'll be paid a lot of dough for that. On top of that, he was on the contract for the third movie using his script, but the offensive tweets occurred years ago. So technically he didn't breach the contract he signed with Disney's Marvel Studios to direct the third film in the franchise. That means if you follow this, he's in a very unique payer play situation with the studio. And that means there are people who estimate that due to this unique situation, this fuck face could receive a payout of 7 to $10 million, if not more. And I know that makes him very happy. I could see him listening to this show and laughing and smiling like he fucking beat the band. Now, here's a twist. And an example of how Hollywood rewards bad behavior. There's a possibility that gun might return to maybe develop and direct another marvel movie. So I ask you, what was his punishment? Really? What happened, you know, what did they do to him? But what exactly happened so bad to

Hollywood Hypocrisy Strikes Again With James Gunn

"What do you know? Hollywood hypocrisy strikes again. This time the story is about what insiders are saying about James Gunn. The director recently dropped from directing the finale of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise because of unthinkable and unfunny tweets he made over the years which reflect his penchant for being sexual with little boys. And since there's no real victim here, I'll stop short of calling him a pedophile. But I think his jokes allow me to call him pedophile ish. And really, is there any difference it's like pregnant and sort of pregnant? But anyhow, here's the bullshit. I'm going to talk about something. Just because this guy was fired from the film. It turns out he's actually in demand now. This is what Hollywood's like, this guy is fucking in demand. Or so it's being said. Okay, once his agent's free him from his Disney contract, it turns out a lot of people want to work with this guy. The Hollywood Reporter reports it's been written that several top producers and executives at major studios are dangling big film projects. Remember what I just said because later, I'm going to take apart that sentence of bullshit and let you in on a secret of what some lazy writers do to put out a story and go home early sometimes. And listen, if there are people who want to work with him again, then I wish those people luck. And by people, I mean assholes. And by luck, I mean bad things.

"I mean that's a difficult position for president to be into sort of turn on the voters and start saying you. The people are getting this wrong but in a way maybe what do you think. Jesse would that be. Effective him to start actually pointing the presidential finger wagging the presidential finger at those people who just aren't getting vaccinated. I mean i think based on his speech last week he's beginning to do some of that have to die. Read the news you see stories about unvaccinated patients hospital to people who are outright refusing. Because they're worried about for example their individual liberties so he argued that liberties come with responsibilities last week. And so i don't think that totally opposed to that. But i think he also recognizes that it's more complicated and him beginning to lane the unvaccinated for example which i don't think is helpful. Rhetoric holds the potential to have a backlash. You know who's the group did they most want to get vaccinated really young people as well. So they're doing things like reaching out. The white house is reaching out to tech talk influencers to get them to try and talk about vaccines on their social media channels. And that i think is what's going to win the game here just your very precise scientists scientific person but i'm gonna ask your gut instinct. What does your gut say about this. Do you think. Joe biden pulls this off and turns it around and manages to reach those people who so far have not vaccinated or is that number going to stay stubbornly low. What's your gut unscientific instinct. Such a difficult question. We're not going to reach the end of the pandemic in the way that we expect to. And what i mean by that is. I suspect we're going to be in this interstitial period where there's some new shoots of normal coming up at the same time as we see new cases happening and were sort of in the pandemic still for the next year getting people vaccinated but that is going to be. I think a real slog. It's gonna be slow progress. But i have a lot of hope based on this vaccine and i'm hopeful we will. We will get there eventually. But it's it's not going to be easy. And i don't think it's going to end in the way that we had hoped it would have ended on july fourth jessica cleanses senior health reporter for the guardian. Us thanks so much for joining us.

Saxony anyone anyone you think. That's it you make it sound like it was a moon landing or kennedy assassination. Felt like order. I think i heard it on the radio and then obviously went to look at the picture and my immediate reaction was that he should obviously resign. Boris johnson would oversee try and defend him and the position would be. Let's see if we can ride out the weekend and hope that it bounces off the news agenda and if it doesn't we'll have to get rid of him Which is pretty much what happened. I think and why had underestimated. Although i thought he had to go was it was only when i was reminded of exactly what said with regards to neil ferguson. Remember the epidemiologist government adviser who had resigned of because he hadn't a fan broken lockdown regulations. When i saw the hancock cliff it's a matter for the police as a government minister. I'm not allowed to get involved in the operational decisions of police matters. You know the social distancing rules of a very important and people should follow them. I thought this is now. Unsurvivable took it to people on the inside that is that is actually one of the things i think that concentrated mind you know inside number. Ten inside the department of l. That it just was completely untenable and also the fact that he was just you know you can't have someone who's going to stand up in front of the nation and say you have to follow these rules because the whole country's just going to be like well you can go to wherever. Yeah and i think this is. This is the ongoing legacy of this in some respects that you know and it's possible that such comes out this whole issue of easing regulations from a slightly different place in my hand quote. We get the impression he does. He's a little bit more libertarian. Or not he wears a treasury hat in a way that matt hancock didn't well sitting at the department of health and social care of so they might have to have a different ethos with regards to the regulations. But also i think even with hancock out the authority of this government now corporately to be telling people how they should behave in private who. They should be hugging who. They shouldn't be hugging that. So the stuff it it's now shredded. In a way that is probably irrecoverable. They could sort of court back a bit of the cummings And it was a hole in subsequent waves of pandemic the change the calculus there anyway. Now i think they probably recognize that they lost that authority and is going to place. They can't come back from. I might be wrong about that. I want to come onto such a little bit later. But in terms of the lingering issues from from the hancock case there's also this concern over the use of private. Emails feels very familiar to anyone. Who's ever watched..

But he was coming with this big blur of an issue that felt like time in productivity and he was making it up into all sorts of different things. I'm like let's actually just break it down into pieces like these. People need to have some wrangling around. When and how often you're doing this kind of meeting and so we set up an enforcing structure around that to make it easier because we knew where his pitfalls would be which as a quick side note I think is such an overlooked thing How often there's there's A? There's a want to overlook the human component of a thing the likelihood that a person will actually take action a relic fall down on a thing. It may be silly may be embarrassing to admit like in that example I will feel bad telling somebody three weeks out. Doesn't matter if you WANNA solve the problem just like shamelessly admit the limitation. You have of a thing if you want to work on that personal development of getting better at saying three weeks out. Whatever but in the meantime craft up a solution that makes the problem easier and get over yourself Roy? We've been talking about the appointments and the calendars and in in some respects. That's that's an easier one but when you talk about enforcement sometimes it's more difficult conversations that don't lend themselves to an APP. It could be dress code. You know maybe that you have a CO worker. Who who is always dropping into your office and maybe not just a talk about his kids or his vacation plans or whatever maybe he's talking about legitimate workers issues or wants to check in with you on certain things but still interrupting your flow and you can't get your block time? And and how do I say. Hey you gotta stop coming in here all the time without being that guy you know without a whether you outsource it or you figure out a way to do with their some aspect of my personality is the enforce our that I have to tap into an either outsource or figure out how I can utilize. Well there's another super important point that you mentioned that that I feel like I've been having a conversation about all lot. Both with my kids and also with several clients in that story you told about Lisa. was that her name. The Lisa a really important part of that. We've been focusing very much on that like internal decisions at Lisa's process of what matters what doesn't when is it my problem. When is your problem Elliott? When the students problem but that last one is is is I think the most important part she seems to have a really keen sense of when to her when to take on the issue and try and fix it? Because we've been focusing on whether she says yes or no and that's that's actually the result on the other side of a thing where I it sounds like she is much more clear and keen on. Is this my problem my problem to solve and she's like Oh actually we don't even really need to make that decision because this student has another option already. The student can watch the this that and the other. So it's almost circumventing the entire I making air quotes. Let's enforcer part of the question of having to be better at saying no you're actually not saying no you're saying. Hey this actually is the conversation we need to be having because you have another option right my way of reading that. By the way I received the email from the student was can I solve her problem and the answer is yes the way that Lisa looked at it is should. Should we be solving problem. Yes and the answer in that case is necessarily know right right. And that's that's the real that to me is much more enlightening. I've this is a very specifically relevant thing for me right now is because I have teenagers and deciding when as you will know deciding when can can I solve their problems currently most of them yes they will absolutely have problems that I cannot solve at the moment. Most of the things that come into my line of sight are things I can solve. SOLVE NAFTA constantly drawback and say should I and I try to to start with. No can I give them some practice at solving this problem and for some reason I think that's easy it's easier. It's more apparently important that I do. So when you're looking at your teenagers who are soon to be out of the house. So that really ramps up the like. Oh Gosh they need to know how to fix this. But there's I think it gets stepped over in the business world about how often you know you wanna be. It comes from a good place. You WanNa be helpful. You WanNa be accommodating you WanNa make something better and yet you then have to think about the unintended consequences of breeding that behavior as the Go-to you do but in the in the business world not parenting as well but but in the business world my mind goes to okay will who bears the brunt of that decision so I have a CO worker. That wants to come in and say hey. How do I handle this at a hearing? That's coming up and I say figure it out for yourself yourself. Yes he or she may become better at that or the client may suffer because he or she did know how to do it at the hearing so I have have to. You have to balance out will ultimately. What's the consequence of my not solving the problem for the person who's coming in? We'll see there. That is why this isn't a no brainer. Black and white issue because I think you always have to consider the timelines of the things like in the moment you may. I may like three or four different different levels to that but yet and the moment you may say here let me fix that. But if it's something that has happened more than once or if it's something that will come back you have to have some kind of backup Like retains the person or thing where somebody was asking me for the log ins for thing over and over again and I kept saying that women document like can we put that And his client where I was working Sort sort of embedded but sort of out and we were trying to figure out where we put files awesome stuff and this young man kept coming to me over and over and saying well. How can I get to that? How can I get that and I knew that that stuff was in that file and so I You know my gut wanted to say every single time. Have you checked the file because I knew is in there and it was just easier for him to ask me And I had to decide every time time like. Is this the moment where I did. Because sometimes there was something actually on the line and I would just say do this get it done dotage but every other time if at all possible I would say. Check the file. And he's like all right right right. I forgot about the file and slowly he started. Remember that there's a file and he doesn't have to ask me But it is. I think there's this nuance difference but if what you do is if it always seems easier to solve the problem then what you are saying is I will be the solver of this problem and if you're not okay with that then you you need to find a different way right and then if the new as as somebody who owns a business you think well if I'm always the software of the problem why am I writing this check to you or so. How is to be the solve? You can't complain about being the solve. The problem but then continued to just go okay. Ob solve the problem. So you have to you. You know especially if you have to to figure out what you're going to tolerate what really irritates you like the password issue and how you resolve and also going back to my story. What you're good at what you're not and I'm not really good? At being the enforcer when it comes to or the protector I should say the protector of my own time my own mental resources. Just like you're saying I could fit that in. Yeah could accommodate. You might do this. And I'm not being ineffective of guardian of what I do best. Yes I like that Word Guardian. It that to me this better than I look at a much more fun word. But but but but but enforcer implies to me a much more black and white like I am the person who says no like an absolutely not guardian to me. He really gets a little bit more into the nuance of of considered decision. Making where you're weighing you're scanning all the different things like. How urgent is this? This right back to your original story if that had been a graduation requirement and it was the last semester. There's no way we would have said. No she would have made sure the the graduated did she was like Oh this is not a mission. Lives do not hang in the balance. She has other options There are other ways around this and so south and the same way when you were talking about even the the calendar App because when you program it well when you build and everything it's not an enforces up black and white but it is a guardian yen what you consider to be top of the line priority and and I think why that matters is wrapping up here.

That is being done is not necessarily obvious to us. We'll be hearing more about out discoveries in surprises later on. But first this year London book fair has fallen at a time when sales with books about politics and mental health have rocketed in the K in the past year, surely nothing to do with Brexit and on this week show. We're tackling the latter speaking with two authors who have turned the tables on therapy in both fiction and nonfiction in this chat.

"Yeah. The guardian. Hello. And welcome to the guardian books podcast. I'm Shaun king. And I'm Clare this week music journalist in Ryton, Lieutenant takes Claire for a one to through the trees and history of Epping forest talking about his book out of the woods. The funny thing is I thought I'd written a book about forests. And then I ready again in our as ahead an address book about sexuality and religion class. You've always enjoyed nature writing heavenly. Yeah. I actually love nature writing. And I and I was thinking about why it is. And I think one of the reasons is that it relies on really detailed observation it takes people out of themselves. And that's actually quite refreshing. 'cause we all say slip cystic now being so internalized and just actually really engage in watch something and report on the existence of other and poetry's particularly good at this. And just you know, look at right back to John Clare or Ted Hughes and possibly the greatest poet of writing today. Discuss. Also, I had the great privilege of into a couple of years ago. And here she is reading from her epic poem, the dart which tracks this Westcountry river back to its source through all the things that rivers go through which isn't always nature. It's it's industry and their fishermen as well as Kingfisher's. But this just gives a sense of the extraordinary richness of her observation listen. Anoc spinning around one note. Splitting and mending it. And I find you in the reads, a trickle coming out of a Bank a photo of a river. One step with water of linked stones trails in the stones glides in the trills heels in the glides in each ill a finger at the sea. In walking boots with twenty pounds on my back space, walks compass map, water purifier. So I can drink from streams seeing the code floating spread out above the morning tent to chocolate not much else. Which will make it longish almost unbearable between my evening meal and sleeping when I've got his far as stopping sitting in the tent door with notebook no source span not so much as a stick to support the loneliness. One of the big hits of the last two years has been falon. Jackie Moore says the lost words, which is big picture book full of poems. That celebrating words from the natural world that have fallen out of our and sit of designed to be reintroducing words to children he may have lost touch with with the natural pups, don't go outside and don't get taken on trips through nature as much as pets their parents did. Yeah. Is funny. Because when I first saw this break, I thought it was I didn't buy it. Because it's whereas like conquer otter and Kingfisher which you know, how to cut to me, actually, maybe children. Didn't know those words because hitter see conquers not as king vicious autism making a bit of a company. But it is a fabulous huge great books with these brilliant, gilded illustrations. My Jackie Morris, and the poems spell poems. So that the idea is enchanted magic, and they very cleverly mirror the animal or the object that they're they're writing about. This is just to give you a very short example here it is sadly, we don't have Jackie Martha's, fabulous illustrations. Acorn? Flake is to blizzard curve is fear is not is to net. As one is too. Many coin is to money as bird is to flock as rock is to mountain as drop is into fountain. Spring is to river as glimpse is to glitter as near as far as wind is to weather feathers two flights. As light is to star as kindness is too good. So a coyness too. So that was eight Coon and season of 'em producer had foreclosed cheese from high on ferry piece that she chose eight comb because as everybody who listens to this podcast regularly. We'll know I am a complete tree. Not. And I I was trying to think when it actually started. And I think it all goes back to co Pook flying rabbit or series of books picture books where all the little trees little those windows and chimneys with Smick coming out and rabbits and fair. It was. Was so cool. In fact, I was looking I was just looking at the some of the rations on the internet today. When I was researching this just made me feel come over. I chivalry and funny me right back out that sense of absolute German. Child. I was just I really miss that feeling of having just a book with lots of elaborate illustrations and just staring them for hours. I probably way more credit than I deserved actually for being a big raiders kid. She wasn't reading anyway. Those just staring. Interesting. Nothing wrong with reading pitch. But the result of that. I lived in this rubber treeless landscape in the north of Nigeria. So my idea of forest isn't the scary Hansel and gretel type. It's absolutely I as a place in John meant, I think that's why I'm so I'm so hung up on them. Those a really good thriller, which actually didn't get that much attention in this country is huge on the continent. And it's called sixteen trees at the psalm by the Norwegian LARs meeting. It's a set in France. Norway and the Shetlands and laws meeting wrote the two thousand sixteen sleep hit Norwegian wood chopping stacking and drying with the Norwegian way. Which always makes me giggle. Every time I say that. What's wonderful? This thriller is that the key to the ancestry mystery is contained in the growth rings of a group of trees on the psalm. Good my that's my kind of tree. And then, of course, says Peter volume Benz hidden life of trees, what they feel have communicates. Sleeper hit. Yeah. Remember when we were at the hay festival and identity eat read the book at that point. And he was speaking. I was very skeptical again skeptical you spotted it. Well, I just remember going like that sounds vaguely interesting because it was it was very we're going to learn how trees talk to each other and all this stuff all that squire nice idea. And then you end along, and you came back just raving and remember that you came back, and you're telling me how trees PU. Funny, the whole under routes suites. It's the cutest thing and it was picked up. I bet you Richard powers read it before he wrote the over star which was his Booker shortlisted novel last year, which was IFC loved the over story. Because one of the story lines is about to botanist whose banished from the scientific community after publishing a paper. Arguing just the things that that book argued I- trees communicate with each other, and it's really clever novel because it's structured like a tree with rings of story, which sort of grow closer and closer nine characters and their story rings, closer and closer as it goes along. Hey here. Let's have a little listen to it. Years pass the Brown trunks start to gray lightning and apart fall with so few prairie targets tall enough to bother with hits one of the remaining chestnut. Payer would that might have been good for everything from cradles to coffins goes up in flames not enough survives to make so much as a three legged stool. The sole remaining chestnut goes on flowering. But it's blooms have no more blooms to answer them. No mates exist for countless miles around and a chestnut though, both male and female will not serve itself yet. Still this tree has a secret tucked into the thin living cylinder beneath its bark. It sells. Obey an ancient formula. Keep still wait something in the lone. Survivor knows that even the ironclad law of now can be outlasted.

So I've just been giving you all Mayan tease Yasim have any. It's funny thing is I was thinking about nightrider. And I realized that I've I'm very shamed. As gap in my reading of barely read any and I was actually wondering with a one of my most favorite books in the world travels with Charley by John Steinbeck, actually counts as nature writing. Because a lot of it is him in his car with his lovely poodle, Charley driving through merica and just sort of raging at how much industries encroaching on nature. So it's almost like the absence of nature in seen in writing. Yeah. Snowflake. Snowflake. Yes, it's one of my favorite boots though. And I think you absolutely right that that's what it is. It's about making humans Phil small again. And is about that observing the the bigger picture, even though in Steinbeck's cases. Yeah, he doesn't very much like, but it's a great book.

Come with. Man. As. Name. Toback gives a sense of vibrancy of Barrio appearance. And here she is on writing your own truth. Never think that you have to apologize. I think that as women in the world often there is the pressure to to not be full cells because. You don't want to be sometimes you're in situations where you think if I'm black. I'm going to make them uncomfortable. So you start to high parts of yourself, and you start to change yourself because you want to fit in and what have learned in my own experiences that when I'm most fully myself is actually when things and the sort of going. Well, if that makes sense that people in the publishing industry who will never get your stories that's just offense. But there's always someone who will that's been my experience. I think that any story. That's the story has to be written. Well, of course, but I think that any story can be universal. And so this idea somehow that one has to be mainstream and often mainstream means not being black to black. I would say don't do it. Don't apologize. I would say I would say be you because there's a lot actually I think in the untold stories of black women's experiences that will make for grit literal. Richer, and that has not been done. It hasn't been done as what I see that as an opportunity right to to tell the stories of experiences in a way that will speak to everyone, and it can be done when I was writing Americana. He's a novel that sort of very blunt about race on hair and blackness. I remember thinking nobody's read this book. They're going to hate it. Because it's too of your, you know, I'm not being new ones about Reese. I'm calling black black right? I'm not saying black is something in the wind. Right. I'm saying I'm saying this is so I thought nobody would like the book, and I was so surprised and still surprised that people actually are reading this booth. And when I when I was writing it, I said to myself, okay, nobody will buy it. But I'm still getting royalty checks from my other books this I can eat until I write the next book that people. So I guess the point of the story is simply to see. Is to tell you truth. I think it's a shame that we have a few more obstacles than other people because we're black women. But that's not a reason to stop, right? I mean, there's still a poetry. I think that the untold stories of women's experiences is not a bad thing. It's an opportunity doesn't she have a fabulous voice. The get to see a slightly different side to these people familiar from appearances in the UK. Yeah. I think definitely the two talks that Amanda gave were very different the I was very literary. And in the second, you just felt that she was talking truce that needed to be said to population that needed to hear them, and they were it was much more to do with the politics of personal identity in the way that the literary in the personal and the political and the institutional or coalesce, and you just you could feel these twenty women writers.

"The. The god. Hello. And welcome to the guardian books podcast. I'm Richard Leigh. And I'm Shannon came this week. We hit from Jason Reynolds. An African American author whose experience of never seeing himself on the page made him commit to making sure no other kids had to go through the same thing. Nobody ever mentioned our music. Our problems are textures of language really walked and talked. You never saw your community in these stories specially in school. But I this year marks the centenary of the birth of JD Salinger last week. There was a tantalizing glimpse into the treasure trove of manuscripts held by his family since he stopped publishing in nineteen sixty five so shot. How did this come about? Sorry. Basically, everyone knows that JD Salinger is sort of kind of regarded as a bit of a mystery and unfairly perhaps categorized as a quote, unquote, replace infamous. Yes. Someone piece of the guardian about said of the idea of the least very reclusive because it is said of remained sized idea. People like Thomas, pension, and Hopley and Thomas Harris that they basically said reclusives kind of code for reluctant to give interviews and successful enough. Not to Nate. Yeah. So. Yeah. JD Salinger basically most famous for catcher in the rye published in nineteen fifty one and became a massive success. And then published other things around the place, but he wasn't sitting credibly prolific or anything and a lot of the stories of revolving around some sort of short story collections in the Velez and even paces in the New Yorker, he sort of incredibly hard man to edit, and I was watching a documentary recently where they were talking about. There was one guy that talked about putting in one coma an extra Comber into one story. And how mad he go. And another guy who's really good friends with them. And then he promised that nothing would be changed in this story. And then he's paying so much attention to the story. He didn't pay attention to the name of the story and someone on Cozma Paulison time change the title of the story, and he never spoke to him again. Only one novel restores that. He published in the New York. Yeah. There was sort of lots of lots of kind of be made out of things pops that he'd never really intended to be books, and there were a couple of legal challenges that he made to set an dishes of books that he just didn't want all his early stories in one them published again. So because of that because he's got one book Vic sort of looms over everything else. Like people love Friday and Zooey, but it's really at Har a combination of short story and novella there's been mash together. So this is sort of a lot of him. But really catcher in the rise of thing that looms over. And so because it was so big it's the of same thing with Hoppy? Why was there anyone book? Why don't we get more books, and I suppose because it's really it's a really interesting relationship. I think authors have with raiders that there is this sort of psychological connection that if you feel recognized in a book often the fans, very ardent, and I think this is true for all sorts of creativity. Whether you're an actor or filmmaker or whatever, and so j d Salinger had this really interesting they wear he had really out advanced. To the point that they'd come and turn up at his house and sent him letters and fan mail, and he just sort of hit away from quite a lot of it not all of it. But quite a lot of it the tumors readers. If we feel authors owes something. Yeah. A little bit. And I suppose it sort of that I think a lot of maybe journalists over the is Vitas challenge to try and get details out of him. So basically in two thousand thirteen there was this big headline making knees. A documentary had been made about JD Ellen called Salinger and one of the filmmakers worked on. It was also making a biography to go along with the film and as part of their promotional work for this. They were announced to the world that they had found out that there were five works that we're going to be published at some point between twenty fifteen and twenty twenty that we'd never seen before that there hadn't been any reference to publicly that had never been acknowledged as existing by his family or the estate and that was. That and that was a maid. And then the family refused to comment on this at all. And they never really confirmed or denied it. They just absolutely did not respond to it whatsoever. And then this week in the guardian review, we have a interview we've met Celinda who is his son who is taking care of his father's state with his mother and turns out there are several Ellen works coming. He's actually finally confirmed that yes, he is working on it. And they will be coming. I don't think it's going to -sarily for into the twenty fifteen twenty twenty timeframe that the film mecca suggesting a few years ago, he saying hopefully in the next decade in he says that in a very that's absolute worst case scenario, it's going to take a decade to get them all out there. But he's said that is quite fragmentary. A lot of the things that his father wrote that have been left. He was prolific it sort of tens out. He was very prolific. But he wasn't Ness. -sarily a writer that was dedicated to finishing things in a way that they could lead to be published. So that's basically it was back in nineteen seventy four and his final interview said that he loved writing, but he liked the pleasure of writing for himself doing all those years writing he learned a little letters. And if you read the interview with Matt Salinger these little snippets of letters that bat showed to out interview, Lydia Haas and quite funny and revealing and it's kind of weird for meted read him saying. As opposed to just God damn which all of his characters. They God damn. Yeah. Yeah. And yeah, it's it's really interesting, and it will be it'll be interesting to see what form this takes. Guess there will probably be short stories. There have been several instances where short stories have emerged over the years. But the St Louis have been pretty on it and have taken them down. So three stories turned up online a couple years ago. And then they were immediately taken down not before, you know, every literary journalists

"And he told me that this is my favorite fact, actually, I think I learned for out the whole book was that testosterone, doesn't cause aggression. There's no such thing as an aggression receptor in the brain. That's not the thing. But what it does cause as far as they can tell around like chimps, and so on his is status seeking and so they run ecconomic games where in order to win the game you have to cooperate. And so in those games, the men the highest Austrian levels are the winters always. But if you give a guy shot, and you tell the testosterone, but it's a placebo, those guys athlete jerks. So obviously the way we perceive that has yes. And and that doesn't make it less powerful. Like, I think sometimes we talk about nature and nurture as if it's like nature's the powerful thing and nurtures the like really easily changeable thing and sure, but culture is really powerful. Intersection the two boys. Exactly. Yeah. Another coupla. I guess that. When you go to the gym, you didn't tell people about your history. You didn't tell him. You're trans want one on. I think for two reasons. One was that. I I wasn't sure how people might react. So just from a safety perspective, really literally safety. Yes. It's a very intimate space. Obviously in terms of, you know, just you're sort of in these like subterranean dank spaces with a bunch of mostly men in these locker rooms AB no product powerful men. Yes. They who than you fight. So I wasn't. So sure how it might how that might be received. And that was one but more than that. I would say I was really interested in in not I've always been very out. And I I wanted to not have this being mediating factor for people in terms how they treated me, especially because I intended to write this was I, you know, a story that is writing for courts, and I and I really wanted to to not spend the whole time wondering about if I'm being treated differently in like, you know, in terms of reporting the story. So that was that was really kind of. Mythological thing as well. Yeah. Exactly. Also about the fact that every story is an individual you say that you weren't passing a managing because you are a man your brain, you say was grooved by moving through the world and you'll before bodies, no one else in Jim had the same kind of stories you. But isn't the point that nobody has the same kind of stories anybody else? And I was thinking a lot about passing the book in sort of tortured around that I think I felt very strange about, you know, because I I'm such an open book, and I really appreciate the potential to walk around and say, this is who I am all the time. But over time, I realized there are people in this gym who have stories that you know, of as I was learning a little bit about everyone. I found out things. I had no idea are never would have expected. You know? And so the passing that was happening in that. Jim was happening in every everybody. Yeah. Which is also what's happening in life. You know? So I think I think I sort of overtime. I let that go as a as an exile eighty or fear because it felt like we were all in the same situation, but just from different backgrounds. The paul. The problem in the US that men are defined in a binary opposition with women rather than Robin as in Denmark, as you say being Manhattan being defined the opposition to boyhood is the the problem to look for other binary, or is it just junk the binary? Yeah. I mean, I think by Neri's for me. Anyway, whenever I see when I'm suspicious. Yes. Because I think I think all all of our humanity comes from nuance. You know, and when you see something where you're being presented with two choices in less. It's really truly like I dunno on a restaurant menu. I'm concerned about why who it's a power dynamic great. Some one is one that choice has to become the more powerful choice..

"Burn. The god. Hello. And welcome to the guardian books podcast. I'm armistead, and Sean Kane. We have the skinny scoop and the surprise of this year's overall cost of the year word, and it's not who you think I'm delighted to announce the winner of the eighteen Costa book of the year is the cutout girl ball. Yes. We would totally wrong in thinking, it would inevitably be Sally Rooney. But we like to think we will also totally right in giving you the early heads up on vannice in our interview with him last week. We'll have more on the shock cost winner later on. And history was made when Thomas pavement be stepped into a book seeing ring at Madison Square gardens for fight. But why I always lounging around in comfy chairs reading books except not definitely not this week. You've been out about rushing around all over the world, haven't you Claire, and Sean where where have you been off to? Yes, I've been to Calcutta where I was a judge on the DNC price for South Asian literature, which we gave to giant Kenya another surprise winner. Because he is a writer in the Canada language and translated by Tej Sweeney and Jonah, and this is a minority language, which hasn't even been translated into other Indian languages, let alone into English and as Sweeney point. Doubt giant is not actually is writing in his second language because his is actual languages, Connecticut. But there is not a written script for it. So so they all they have to write in candidate was doubly translate. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Putting this is the first translated winner that pros. Yeah. Yeah. And it's a collection of short story collection called no presence, please. And it's all about Bombay. And so this is supposedly in a prize for novels, but we made the point that actually in it was actually making a novel of the city of Bombay, but it's looked at very much from the from the margins from the small people who come in lips more lives. It's not this grandiose metropolitan story that we tend to hear about these great Asian cities. So I was upset through that he won. He had an incredibly stiff field, including communist shansie, most in Hammeed, Neo Mookie and it just folk like the right person at the right time, the book that needed a bit more attention. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. But he's not. That it needs a bit more attention. It should get more attention. And how about you Shawn? Where have you been to? I went to Indonesia for week, which was a is basically of every year, we have London book fair, which is very industry facing. So members of the public don't necessarily get to go to London book fair, but it tends to be a place where a lot of the decisions made about the books that will be published each year, and so each year book fed chooses a different country to sort of let as the market focus and this year, it was Indonesia. So this basically means that for the first time we actually probably a bit of a groundswell of Indonesian writing being translated into English because there's really not very much vein translated into English up to this point. So I went to Jakarta fair week and mitt hold onto forces who will be coming to London later in the air to meet publishes book deals at is that Cleese the authors. The most exciting you met, well one particular author here, I'm looking for speaking to quite a lot more spent about now with him. And he. Just had such incredible life. His name is Senate Ghimire Aji Dhamma, and he is a quite well known journalist there. But he basically he presents a lot of his journalism as sort of short stories and satirical takes on really genuinely troubling things in engineering society, so corruption and censorship, and he's had quite a lot of run ins with governments before and he's bit of a rockstar. So hopefully, we'll be up to see more of his books in English. They'll say a great young writer could in ten para Madisha, she's Indonesia, but she's actually based in Sydney, and she has her first short story collection coming out in April with hovel Secca, which is called apple knife. And it's sort of kind of look at daisy Johnson style look at womanhood, but innovative disgusting sort of horrific lens is that setback in her old countries that now in Australia..

"Yeah. The god. Hello, welcome. To the guardian books podcast. I'm Sean Kane on Clairol mustard on Richard league as London braces itself for an extraordinary looking exhibition MichelAngelo's work at the Royal Academy this week, we're going to time travel back to Constantinople during your cement empire with the novel that imagines Michelangelo traveling to advise the Sultan written by Mattia Senna. But I can't through the cost is the cost of book awards is still won't allow literary year and reliably gives us fun stuff to chew over divided into five categories first novel novel biography poetry and children's book when is a bird triumphant from each short-list before competing to be named overall book of the year, it is unusual, but not unknown for biography and children's books to be crowned. But it is more often given to novels or poetry glare. You're going to be speaking with biography category. When it bought van s did his book stand up this year. Yeah, it's it is a lovely lovely memoirs memoir. Partly family memoir. But it's partly. Sort of a mystery. I sold in the mystery of how his family came to adopt a Jewish girl. This is a Dutch family in the second World War and give her sanctuary and then she left because she was in danger of being rumbled. But then she went back after the war ended. And then there was a big family bus stop. And he's very good at doing the sort of hanging reveal while, Michael. But it's also written in such interesting limpid way, he's one of those writers who has no fear of simplicity, which is not to say, it's anything to do with being simplistic. So it's a sort of the way the sentences put together a a sort of utterly without pretension. However, I do have to say that part of the reason that I wanted to into view him now because so much attention is being given to Sally ruining who is going into battle with the novel of the year, and they're all sorts of reasons for thinking Sally, Rooney will win it not least of all is that just been doing a quick count because I'm a bit obsessive. With prizes and with with this sort of hardcore data and novels of one. It fifty percent of the time. They've won it more. They've actually slightly more so novels in the first novel overall novel category have won it more than all the other categories put together. So the likelihood is that it's going to be one of the novels, and we also have a book. That's got extraordinary stature. And but I really really rate the cutout girl. I just thought this is absolutely the moment to bring a quiet voice, really classy voice that might otherwise get overlooked spoil it to say that he goes and meets her in the current day is that she's still she's still alive. No, absolutely. Not she's in her eighties. And he he's very humble in in her presence. You know, he's he says that he is constructing a narrative, which isn't so clear when she's remembering it because she was only a little girl when it happened her. So he he's constructing something out of pieces, but also very respectful as the fact that she is the survivor, and it is her story. Now, one of the interesting. Things about this list is that three of these books are to do with the war. And so so you've got to cut out go, which is the second World War. You've got the sky locks war, which is the children's novel from Hillary MCI, which is set in the first World War, and then you've got assurances which is the poetry collection by j Morgan and that is set in the Cold War, which I find really really interesting. And in fact, the the it's that collection sheri-, which gives us I think it gives us a couple of lines which could stand for the literature of conscience of our era, one of which is the opening line, which is born from a need to counteract the threat that is the opening line of this book length am, I just think, you know, we're we're talking about people who there's a sense that there is a need for literature to have moral purpose at the moment. Well, why because we're in a mess. Aren't we? The first novel turns the seven deaths of eveland Hardcastle is probably far out on that. Pretty much. It's fun Plotti. So much fun, actually. And I I saw the title, and I have to say that I just a little bit based on the title because we had we've had quite a few of those of quirky novels that are like the eight servants owes of naming names city thing, and I've always just come forward of that. So I definitely judged based on the title. But then I was speaking to Alison whose main reporter on guardian books knees. And she really rated it and she was known. No the premises. Really good saw actually looked at the plot. And it's such a cool premise so Evelyn of the title is killed as she's murdered at a party thrown by her parents. And there's a fella could Adrian who basically groundhog day style is reliving the same day that she is murdered. And he wakes up in the body of different guests at the party and has to try and figure out who kills her on the day. And it's such a good idea and Alison she interviewed him when he won the first novel category. And it was kind of hilarious. We thought. We might go in on Saudi Rooney being named novel of the because she was such a big fuss her normal people. We haven't actually said. So used to say. Talking about about two years. But then she spoke to him, and he was sorry. Just sort of ordinary about his novel. Like, he said, oh, no. I had an awful time writing it. No. I've probably got one book in me. Are any wanted to write it because I really like Agatha Christie going home with John rose that suddenly Jonah titles are beginning to pop up they popped up on the on the book list as well. We've had a few offices. It seems to me really to being public about their love old, John Ritter. I've seen quite a lot of actor Christie from several of list over the last year, quite a few people that write for the books that made me call them in review actually, Christie's basically they once a week one of the strong piece in the London review books by John Lanchester the other day saying exploring the fact that he'd read more than fifty Christie's. Why why is she the only author that I read more than fifty of not not you wouldn't consider her to be sort of normal stamping ground for literary writer, but this isn't a straightforward of others credibly intricately plotted, he wakes up in various bodies in various days and has to kind of get in and out of them because he wake him at different time of days. Very well put together I like it. And I it's the sort of thing that I think Rooney's had a bit of a rough time in a way in that. She has been so publicly lauded which then like inevitably and depressingly then also provoked some sort of backlash to her and particularly because she's a young woman. Then that's mainly picked about why she successful. Why she getting talked about all the time as opposed to is a good thing. And leaving it at that. So why why do we not think we're not giving very much attention to the children's when they're older or indeed the poetry win. Which is a it is a fabulous piece of work. Well, the funny thing with with children, I wonder whether this is really know is certainly regarded the cost of whether this is change, but only to children's books of everyone the overall book of the year. So we had Phillip Pullman back in two thousand and one winning the children's book the was that for the final booth, amber Spyglass, and he didn't actually a little bit of sort of true devotees information. He didn't actually submit it. It had to be called in by the judge. Such as approving of prizes guarantee price. And then Francis hugging you one in two thousand fifteen. Yeah. That was actually one of the things I did on his desk. Oh that was what I started. Anyway. Two two winners from children's actually interesting poetry has won eight times, which is more than biography. And that quite surprised me six biographies of one. And this is only since one thousand nine hundred the prize itself in its former incarnation as the Whitbread goes back to nineteen seventy-one. But they only introduced book of the oh nineteen five and poetry. We were talking about this before the poetry is kind of a funny one because when you look at the poetry collections that have won. They're often always about death five five of the eight collections that have one that with dying and illness, serious illness or bereavement and Ted. He's birthday lettuce was so and and obviously last year when a hell dot more. He won posthumously and the collection was written from my hospital bed parts of it. So. The odds for sure is not. Down. Maybe.

"Hello into the guardian books podcast. I'm Sean Kane Richard Li it's I shy for twenty nineteen and we're very pleased to be back at looked take the you've achieved right speaking with Josh Cohen. I'm not entirely sure. What does he talk to us about today about his latest book? He's just Cohen is a he's an English literature. Professor Goldsmith and also a psychoanalyst and he's been his latest is about not working title. It's about making a case for inactivity, which is kind of slightly paradoxical because alongside is two jobs. He's gone written a book as well. One of the things that I want. Tax. So what what's his case? Why why should we be looking? Well, he seemed to think that it's a notion that he traces back to the sixteenth century that all sense of self worth is all bound up with doing things. And he seems this is in the twenty first century. This is reached a pitch. That's unsustainable social media in constant distraction than the ever increasing demands of corporate life on every waking minute, and he reckons that we need to be able to find a space or step back to find space for actively being inactive. Nice. He writes about artists says exemplifying what he calls the four different types is the burn out the slob the daydream and the slacker, then he writes, Andy Warhol and Orson Welles and Emily Dickinson and how they managed to turn their various ways of not being active into actually producing very interesting words people into those categories Neethling or could you be floor. Same time. Like, I maybe did that in one day claims at least two firms, so it's not it's not a rigid division between the two the reason taught him as well as not only the paradoxical nature of the entire book. But also this idea that he has that analysis is a space for doing nothing confronted with someone who's in psychological. Distresses is this really enough? But we started off by a start off by by his subtitle is why we have to stop sounds to me like a cry from the hot. I wanted to he's not actually really against working as such. Okay. No, I'm not I don't think that's probably a tenable position. Either famille for most people who might read this book. There was a lot of curiosity about this subtitle. Because of course, it begs the question mmediately, stop watt, and it has a kind of slightly panicked quality to it. What is it that we have to stop? I didn't want it to be construed as a transfer verb. In other words to stop something in particular..
