Let's get things going. Tune in to interact harmoniously with the world around you. And then drop out was to become self reliant. Not dependent on the man.

In this past December, Bloomberg news reporter Caleb melby found himself watching some tiktoks. And box my cerebro package with me. Your meds come straight to your door. The process is stress free and simple. They were from the company cerebral, an online mental healthcare startup. The one that I remember the most is the one where a woman literally dances with a box of pills. My cerebral package with me. Your mets come straight to your door. The process melby and his co author polymaths watched a lot of cerebral videos. Here are ten natural remedies for anxiety. Some of them were fairly generic mental health affirmations, but others advertised how easily medication for anxiety, depression, and ADHD could come right to your door. The ads were eye popping for sure. It made us ask what's going on here. And we decided to start calling around the company. They talked to employees and former employees. A lot of whom were nurses. In some of those early calls, it was like one of those conversations where I was wondering when I was going to get this call. And that's when we knew that we might be onto something that interesting. Wow. That's a reporter's dream. Yes. Yeah, it is. What Caleb and Polly found was a company that promised to fill holes in America's fragile mental healthcare network. But instead, followed the Silicon Valley playbook. Moving fast and growing at all costs and prescribing control drugs, like Adderall and Xanax. Over the Internet.

So people feel irritated, isolated, distracted. They're procrastinating. They're feeling anxious. They're feeling depressed. All of these things at once. And it's happening at a massive scale and needless to say, the American healthcare system is designed is not equipped to deal with that. And at the same time, there was a key legal change around prescribing. What happened? Because people could no longer go to see other prescribers in person in a lot of cases. The drug enforcement administration changed a rules in something called the Ryan haight act that was a 2008 law that banned it in most circumstances. The prescription of controlled substances in telehealth settings. So now for the first time since 2009, basically, you could now get drugs that are controlled substances which are so named and so regulated because you can get addicted to them or they have other major potential complications. You can now get those prescribed online and that includes amphetamine drugs like Adderall, drugs like klonopin and Xanax. These are drugs that in addition to having important medical uses are also drugs that are popular for recreational use as well. I mean, it seems understandable and fair that this was a necessary way for people who needed those meds to access them at the time. Yeah, absolutely. And it's also true that a lot of folks had less access than others even before that rule change, right? So even before Ryan hate was rolled back, if you were poor or you were uninsured or you were in a geographically remote place, the chances that you had access to the same level of mental health services were not great. And the idea that you could now get these prescribed to you online created access in a way that hadn't existed previously. The ability to prescribe controlled drugs online, plus a surging need for mental healthcare created an opportunity. One that several companies seized startups like talkspace and better help, which were founded well before the pandemic offered online therapy and saw their user base a sore, cerebral made online therapy available too, but it went a step further. The company offers three tiers of service. One is medication plus this care counselor who is not necessarily licensed, but they're there to talk to you about coping mechanisms and mindfulness and stuff like that. There's another tier, which is the therapy only tier, and then there's therapy plus medicine. And that's where you're getting a license therapist plus medicine. How much does this cost? Well, for your first month, you can start for as little as $30 a month. And after that, it's a monthly subscription between $85 and $325 a month depending on the tier of service you choose. Now, anybody who's familiar with trying to get mental health care in this country, including people who may be insured, but who have a relationship with the therapist who doesn't take their insurance. You know those numbers are quite and at that price point, you can meet a lot of unmet demand. The company you're describing sounds like a lot of startups, frankly, the sort of subscriber model, the different tiers, different ways of bringing people.

"And screenwriter Joan didion, who died last month at the age of 87. Known for her cool, unsentimental gaze and distinctive writing, she wrote two groundbreaking collections of essays. One was called the white album. The other was slouching towards Bethlehem, which included pieces about hippies of haight ashbury, and described a 5 year old girl high on acid. She wrote 19 books in all, including the bestselling novels, play it as it lays in a book of common prayer. With her husband, novelist John Gregory Dunn, she wrote screenplays for the film's panic and needle park for the 1978 remake of A Star Is Born, and for the film based on her novel, play it as it lays. After the sudden death of her husband in 2003, didion wrote of her grief and shock in the memoir, the year of magical thinking. It became a bestseller, and was awarded the 2005 national book award. A year and a half later, after a period of illness, her only daughter Quintana roo died at the age of 39 and didion wrote the book blue nights. Didion received the national humanities medal in 2012 from president Obama, who called her, quote, one of our sharpest and most respected observers of American politics and culture. Terry gross first spoke to Joan didion in 1987. You wrote an essay in the 1960s in which you were talking about your approach as a reporter. And you said my only advantage is a reporter is that I am so physically small, so temperamentally unobtrusive, so neurotically inarticulate that people tend to forget that my presence runs counter to their best interests. Does that still describe you as a reporter? Oh, yes. I'm not a good interview or and I'm not very aggressive in a situation. I tend to just kind of have to hang around the edges of it and see what's going on. Do you think that being small and physically unobtrusive makes people more wary of you? They think that I am not a threat to anyone. Do you exploit that in any way? I know, I think I did obviously I use it..

An insider tells me news. Jerry will bring a very different energy than sharon. This would be the first time a man has joined the show as a full time co host. I got know because the panel has been four women by women women driven show. Yes what's it gonna be like having a man in their first of all i. I filled on the filled in on that show for nine or ten season. Wow so it was you know it was great. I loved it. And i was always hoping for that permanent seat but some things are just not meant to be. That's right. jerry is perfect. I love i am oh i think he is sweet. He's funny he's quick. He's bright he has children. He's got some world know some world experience. He has a wonderful marriage with his gorgeous wife. I love rebecca.

Little wild that i feel like that's all we're going to get from him. I haven't really seen him. I don't know a lot of deaths.

I don't know. I just. I will go to blows with any you rest holding people else. I just think. I just see him. The way we've described just a super sweet nice goofy.

You're married lesbian. You go flirt. Yeah right feels some type away and it's going to change your perspective in. I think a lot of times on the talk.

Hail, perhaps some debris that's been lofted in what we see right? There is low correlation, and that's an indication to me that this is likely producing a tornado again. Also with this, the possibility of hail up to about three quarters of an inch in size, and this storm is moving to the east in about 35 MPH. So let me go back into our reflectivity mode here. I want to take off that area I circled and I want to show you where that area of debris and where that area of circulation is headed. So let's go ahead and put in a storm track on this.

Graham would be lucky to have but she needed to do the sponge thing i learned from the master and that required her tension and her control on this night. She had neither by the time she got to the venue again. She was early the lsd was. She hadn't been able to throw it all up after all. It was taking control of now. Each step she made towards the door. The fillmore resounded through her body. Vibrations that ricocheted from her heels. Her thighs her ways.

She tried to make contact with their physical body with her mind. She thought to herself. Hey you hey hey amy. She thought it real loud real loud in her mind. She hoped her physical body would look to the left. And right trying to figure out where the telepathy was coming from and then hovering janice would think real hard again. No dummy up here. I'm up here but physical janice never looked around to indicate that she was receiving the drug induced esp. She just quietly made her way to her usual seat.

Like the song itself was a crystal ball. It wasn't just about california is about a new day new sound a new coast. New reality in the force delivered the refrain and chilling minor key harmonies. Who's downright spooky in its beauty cast felt the chill runner. Back is their voices locked in. She knew she had the strongest voice in the group. Despite conservations she knew that the real reason that john gives us so much shit about her weight her oversized personality was really just because he was jealous of her voice he was scared of her force so she let it out loud and clear. During the song's final repeated line to impress john but also to scare him some more and then the pipe came down on her. There were rehearsing in club which was under renovation.

She wasn't even sure if she was janice joplin anymore. Then on the one hand it was a good thing that she didn't feel like yourself didn't sound like herself when she spoke to.

Such just any cool eight. of course. it's aid spiked with acid person than joins the acid test already in progress waits for the trip to begin the grateful dead set up on one side of the room in the merry pranksters are stationed on the other. There is no stage. The night is a blank canvas and from their stories differ. You could ask one hundred different people about what they experienced. And you get one hundred different answers. One guy said that every vibration that came from the dead's amplifiers the pranksters mobius loops was like novella. The music spoke to him and so did the noise it was like he was reading another novell. Every time a new vibration would enter his body. Someone else said that it rained inside the fillmore all night. It was just thunder and lightning alike went. He couldn't believe that it was raining inside the auditorium for one thing. The place had a working roof and also wasn't even raining outside. How is this even possible as he said all night long just walking around shouting and people's faces. How is this even possible. A girl said she saw god. He was smoking the lucky strike wearing a cloth. Diaper course was a guy said. He saw fire-breathing dragon playing a trumpet and another girl said that the flashing lights affected her so much that she never stopped seeing. She went home that night. Sometime after two wants the cops had shown up to shut it all down for the city's noise ordinances. She couldn't fall see all. She saw with a flashing lights not just flashing lights but faces in the flashing lights weeks months later. They're still there like they're imprinted on her brain. And then there was that one guy who totally freaked the fuck out. Lost his shit. He started receiving transmissions from jerry garcia's guitar and there were notes of i very musical on what jerry was playing the more the notes became signals like an sos being tapped out in morse code from the deck of a large boat tossed in a choppy sea like a plastic bag in the wind. Soon the guitar was no longer generating musical sounds. It was all monotone bleeps and blue chips and the bleeps and blues became scratching. Sounds like fingers on a chalkboard the longest fingernails dragging down the longest chalkboard to sound toward years. He thought his here's were bleeding. So he put his hands up to his ears touch them and then looked at his hands and when he did his hands reverse his right hand was on his left hand as left him was his right so he grabbed a nearby chair. Started to drag it across the floor to make the same scratching. Saudi heard coming from jerry's guitar. Maybe two similar scratching sounds would cancel each other out shown. That was stupid. That was going to help. All the guy couldn't take it anymore. He ran from the fillmore screaming. Got behind the wheel of his ford galaxie and ran into a ditch. Yes tested the fillmore. The trips festival longshoreman's hall public experiments were thousands of people could trip together in a controlled environment. That whatever you want them to be they could be a powerful source of inspiration of knowledge and creativity. They could be a portal to a personal health. A sensory overload of sights sounds and sensations could forever alter one's maive for janice joplin. Acid wasn't of great interest. She didn't like the lack of control. She felt like she was. I saw an acid test. Wasn't exactly see but san francisco. The city by the bay gave all the freaks and weirdoes outlet to do their thing. No matter how far out no matter how groove san francisco with it brother. There was a place where janice can be liberated. The city felt like freedom. The music she played with big brothers sounded like freedom freedom to do as she wanted to say what you want to dress the way. She's on it. She could shed the baggage of port. Arthur the town that attempted to beat the strange right out of in san francisco janice can be strange in the presence of others. Who are equally strange. Didn't matter what you into. Everybody was cool. The hate rundown and grungy was teeming with signs of the time flower. Anarchist's heads long haired freaky people kids like her who had escaped. Oppressive families ignorant towns regressive cultures. They walk together in street. Parades dance together. Public parks pashto. Plans in living rooms got their minds blown and concert halls. But even though janice didn't exactly conform to the non-conforming acid had clicked. San francisco would introduce many other drugs drugs. It was shut down or mine. Not expanded stuff that she'd send directly to her veins shots of vibrant insanity that would counteract drowsy feeling. She got from alcohol. Drugs were everywhere. The first head shop in the country was right. There smack dab in the middle of it all to walk into the psychedelic shop on haight street was to receive an assault. On the senses pipes posters incense cosmic swirl of colors aromas and free floating ideas. The books they offered weren't exactly light reading tomes on lsd eastern religion and metaphysics. Miss straight up. Commerce wasn't your bag. You can get your stuff for free from the diggers. An activist group who thought capitalism was the death of humanity they envisioned a communal economy devoid of money and handed out free food food that had been stolen from other local markets because well it all belong to the people anyway right so it wasn't really stealing according to them in san francisco's local. Music scene was equally expansive and challenging. The soundtrack of the revolution was free in big big melting. Pot were john. Lewis could be boiled down and built back up. San francisco had a sound in nineteen sixty six. That was instantly definable. Even if you couldn't put your finger on. It was the sound of the grateful. Dead big brother and the holding company and jefferson airplane quicksilver messenger service moby grape. The charlatans and so on october six thousand nine hundred sixty six when the state of california officially criminalized the possession of lsd. It felt like an attack to all the champions of strange who are working hard. Make the counterculture new reality. Even the date itself was a bad side. Ten six sixty six six six six. It's right there. The number of the beast hiding in plain sight. The children of the revolution decided they'd hold a peaceful protest on that very day. Oct six nineteen sixty six and so they drag this shit a few blocks up from their commute pads in the hate in the panhandle the golden gate park for the love pageant organizers spread the word to the orc and underground newspaper that it only published a few issues skiing with ride. The crowd is only around two thousand strong. They dressed in free flowing. Clothes and tightened headbands enough. Bees make burden street jobless. They brought tambourines and handmade signs and carried little. Children were spitting images of himself. They held hands and swung around in circles rings of people in constant motion. Kim is mary. Priced rolled up in their dayglo international harvester bus kids inside and sitting on top playing flutes and flying flags just back from a cross country track with annoyed the ever loving shit out of old school squares in every town they traipsed through. That was the freak. Their names like mountain girl. Cool breeze black mariah got. They called keys. The chief the grateful dead and big brother and the holding company perform the music that mirrored the action is held. The microphone stand so tight. Looked like she was trying to throttle the veins internet at large in her head. Whip from side to side as she and the boys prime the audience concerts of turned on truisms. They desire to be knocked. Socked rock into the throngs gathered at the panhandle that october afternoon. It was a peaceful battlecry and janice was there. Mike she was she was walking. She was sake as she was spreading. The good word to people like richard rodgers and the highway patrolman nebraska and the working class audience mother jews. The scene was a freak show in unfortunately a dangerous moment of things to come of a society. Slipping even some of those at the very epicenter of the whole seismic moment in the greater bay area thought the janice was about to.

Do you feel like you're constantly kind of like rewriting. Of course yeah. I go to sleep. I think of refinements to the current project. I'm working on it. I grab my phone and email herself a quick note. So i can remember. Yeah so you mentioned righted. Oh yeah so you mentioned that you wrote a retailer. Can you tell me a little bit out that like about the kind of research that you had to do into that. Channel story sure The enchanted swans is a retelling of an irish fairytale called the children of lir. Now that's the story of four children whose mother died and their father married. The mother's sister they're out. There was very jealous of love that father had for children and turn them all into swans for one hundred years. Oh yeah and a story has doesn't have a happy endings. The irish love their misery and they cling to it which was a stronger. I searched everywhere for a non christian ending to this tale because this is a very old jail but every version i found it. Children only became human again when the christian church fell rang and they begin blessed as christians. Detail starts nine hundred years before. Christianity came to ireland so i tried to find a pre christian version and i just couldn't i looked at original sources and even though i don't speak old is due and nobody can find anything alma. Yeah i've heard a lot about about learning the learning a lot. About how a lot of the mythologies and stories had been souls dramatically changed because been christianized when present the guetta especially like near rich. Yeah so what did you do the end in the end i did have the christian element and they did her back into humans with christian help but it was both a hell in my tail both help of christian and pagan magic combined. They both had to be there in order for their purse to break. So i made it a of cooperation. That's a clever way of doing it. I like the preserved both yet. In a way like yeah. So when writing your druids broach series. Ju- plot out how many books it would be beforehand late. You go into knowing that.

I think his name was Richard Low fever elsewhere, and he was on trial when I was a young, a young news man. In the mid eighties. I didn't cover his trial, but I remember he was on trial at that time, And I think Dan Webb might have been the U. S attorney when Great Lord got underway. You know this person? I won't mention this person by name, but I have a relative close relative who was the Cook County judge at that time, and they were new to the bench.

To the nutritional environment you have is a fetus to whether you're ancestors constructed a culture of honor, where culture of cooperative itty to how your species evolved. I think it's basically impossible to see the full span of these. And think there's the slightest room in there for free will free will is the term we give to the biology? We haven't discovered yet. You're listening to Robert Sapolsky in conversation with Dr Keltner. This is city arts and lectures, you know, so refreshing and behave because when we speculate about our deep origins and kind of the deep design of who we are, we We find our favorite primate relative, and we become convinced for bonobos natural any all of having sex all the time living in Haight Ashbury or whatever it is, you know, we think about hunter gatherers. And we tried, eh? In for their loss to our own and thinking and you take a more complicated view of who we are. So the first thing that really jumps out is where a hierarchical species What do you think about human hierarchies? How are they different from the baboon hierarchies that you observed for 30 years? Well, they're exactly the same. In that If you were a subordinate human, your health is generally going to be worse. Much of the poor health is coming out of the psychological mediators of subordination rather than the physical ones. We've invented the most. Effectively crushing version of hierarchical subordination that the primate world has ever seen, which is low socioeconomic status. And that just flattens anything any other primate has come up with. For a way of corrosive Lee just Sublimating another member of their own species, So it's exactly the same with the same physiology until once again. You look more closely and one of the key things is that unlike any other species out there, we belong to multiple hierarchies at the same time, and what we're really good at is deciding why the hierarchy were down in the basement is nonsense. And whatever and why the ones in which were and that's the world where the person who's got the crumbs? His job in this corporation who was nonetheless the captain of the company softball team that here you better bet they're going to be sitting there, saying 9 to 5 Monday to Friday.

We have multiple them's and we're capable of shifting which ones were at the forefront in a second's notice after the remarkable, isn't it? I wanted to get your reflections on a very simple statement that you make, and you've already hinted at it. In the book, but it actually, I think was a pivotal contribution early in your career and in the Book You talk about subordinates, rank or subordinate status for baboon. Is analogous to learn helplessness and depression in humans, right and I don't think people were In any social, biological literature. We're really making that case and you were part of a group of younger scholars in the eighties and nineties, Nancy Adler and others. Starting to talk about the toxic effects of lower rank. So where are we today in in thinking about that, Um If anything, the picture has just become More convincing and thus more depressing and more outrageous as we find ever new ways in which Human subordination in the way of low socioeconomic status. Just doesn't your health okay to two versions. One is a relatively new finding that Came out of UCSF has been replicated. Since then. It has started a whole cottage industry of work on this is work that was done there by Liz Blackburn and Elissa Apple having to do with these things called telomeres. Telomeres are the ends of chromosomes. It's virtually required by law that you used this metaphor at this point, which is at the end of your shoe laces. There's the little plastic cover thing is that I'm sure have a name, but they're like what telomeres Telomeres are at the ends of chromosomes. They don't code for jeans. They just stabilize the whole thing there. And like all of our shoe laces, the little plastic things began to wear away after while with each round of cell division telomeres get shorter. Finally, when they get short enough to sell stops dividing it goes into cellular senescence. This is the nearest thing we've got to like a cellular pacemaker of agent and Liz Blackburn, who discovered them got a Nobel Prize for it Unbelievable work. And then she and Apple whose health psychologist collaborated and showing that, for example, all sorts of versions of stress and humans accelerate telling your aging and one of the surest ones is low socioeconomic status. God your position in society. Your socio economic place has something to do with how fast the ends of your chromosomes are fraying. The other finding with that one is like when you think about it like so outrageous that, like people should be out like singing songs from Les Miz of the barricades or something. You get a kid who's five years old in this country. And on the average the socio economic status of their parents already predicts their resting levels of cortisol. Stress hormones. Yes, elevated with lower SC s already predicts the thickness of your frontal cortex. Metabolic rate of your frontal cortex and how good you already are at doing the sort of things the frontal cortex specializes in. Classic example. Anyone here who has been a parent and happens to be halfway as neurotic as I am will have heard of the marshmallow test like these classic studies. You think five year olds give him a marshmallow. You say Here's a marshmallow. I'm going out of the room for a while. You could eat it whenever you want. But if you hold off and don't eat it when I come back, you can have two marshmallows. And then you study how long kids can hold out. You look at the different strategies and, like go to YouTube. There's amazing like kids are hiding them and hide your faces and kissing and petting the marshmallow and trying not to eat it and all this and what do you know? With each passing year? You get better at holding out, But what's most amazing about that literature is How long you can hold out for a second marshmallow at age five turns out to be predictive of things like your s, A T scores and your occupational success and the new studies coming out from the people who pioneered show that 40 years later, people who were good at holding out for marshmallows have a lower bm I and lower risk of diabetes.

This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the.

We have this big giant hippy bus fixed up in the second Alec I still drive it today. It's out of my driveway. I was able to have a dark room in the bus so I was always printing developing and. I was able to. Share those with other people and I felt it was important to show her how beautiful the hippies were in what their ideas were back to the land and natural childbirth eating good food and recycling, and all those values that are so important today were started in sixties. So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune.

I was so drunk the by the time I got up and was walking on flat I realized I was still holding a drink from the bar and I hadn't spilled much of it. I finished it and then ran up to a apartment building and slipped my hand down all of the buzzers and ran off thirty in the morning and I woke up everybody in a building and rant thing when you're in your twenties and you think you're a manic pixie dream girl but really you're just a fucking asshole drunk fucking asshole. You're just a bane of everyone's existence in my mind. I was just like can you? Beli- me so quirky I would. I'll just do things do wild. Kirke things inside. That building were people who could afford to live. Top of Telegraph Elliott. They were two thirty in the morning on a Thursday night. They were getting ready for Friday morning. Work and I was like thank God. Okay sorry I'm actually in the middle of reading an email. I woke up around three. Okay this this got me. I woke up around three thirty. Am To my pup sitting up alert and not making a sound. That's fucking scary. When the dogs go into pointer mode and they just stare out the window they just stare and I'm like what. Tell me now I have a beagle. Who HOWLS AT AIR? So seeing him sitting at the end of the bed stiff not making. A sound was alarming. When your Beagle scared it's time to run yet. That's right then. I heard the door banging against a frame and thought fuck didn't get the door shut all the way. I laid there for a moment. Still Kinda drunk contemplating if I wanted to get out of my comfy bed or allow the gods to determine my faith finally got up when I got to the edge of the stairway leading to my front door. I saw him a complete stranger standing outside trying to get into my house. I very quickly note that shit and called nine one. Luckily for me my apartment was only half a mile to the police station. Thank you small towns. I was going to say thank you. Small miracles is a perfect line. Break thank you small towns and the cops got there in no time after getting him into the police car. The COP knocked on the door to take my statement when I told him my name. He goes are you sure. You don't know this man puzzled. I assured him I've never seen the guy before in my life and asked why he then goes. This guy. Claims you're married and knew your name what you read that right all caps. The Guy knew my whole fucking name. Obviously I moved out of that apartment within the month and never heard from my late night visitor ever again. God Joey has been with me now for eight years and this is only one of the many gifts he's given me. Stay sexy and get yourself a loyal pup amand on the guy fucking knew her and was like that's my wife and their two. He's been stalking her.

Mad At me on the street at the bar. I've stalked her at no. No
The Promise and Forgotten Journey by Silvina Ocampo
"Of the joys on the path of a reader is seeing a name that you see for years and years. Who is this person as we know today? This person who we hear of and don't know is likely to be a woman who's been neglected. This woman Safina. Oh compo was considered to be one of the great unknowns of South American Literature. She worked with or who we spore his when he was putting together his collection of fantastic literature working on that anthology as well was her husband. Cassavetes who wrote a book that Voorhis praised very highly the invention of Morrell. I read born face and Casado race as a young man but until recently I had never read much to my discredit savina Ocampo. Now I can say in my defense. The two of her books a novel and a book of Stories have just been translated and published by city. Lights press many people know city. Lights Bookstore do you also know that froing getty has oppress attached to that bookstore? Yes there is a press and they have published Safina Compost Forgotten Journey which is a book of short stories. But if I am not giving away too much the forgotten journey is the journey out of the womb into the world. This is a journey. None of US succeed in remembering completely. He did not remember it or face. He saw that. Silvino aqap ball had the gift he said of clairvoyance and so now. We have to thrilling books. Forgotten Journey a book of her short stories and I mean the longest is six pages and then a novel called the promise and we say an awful because it is probably the longest thing she wrote. But it's fairly a hundred pages. I have three translators here who have been working on Silvino compo and they are just some of the translators who are working on Silvino Compo. Because she's about to be the discovery that we have all been waiting for. It's very exciting. And one of these translators is the marvelous Suzanne Joe Levin who goes by the name June. Wien many of you will know as soon as I tell you that. She has translated. Cabrera Infanta. Julio Cortazar Carlos Fuentes Man will tweak Severo Saad we hand Buick Assad Race. And she's translated a great deal of poetry more than forty book on translations she is the dean of Spanish South American literature and translation with her are to people who've been her students and who worked with her on each of these two books. Jill how did you come to know? Savina OCAMPO's work well I came to know Selena. Compost work Because I had the good taste and look to make amazing Literary critic when I was very young New York name a mirror years ago and he with him I was down in Argentina and Together we went to the House of Combo They were married. They were married and so I met them for the first time but of course I had already heard of them because I studied Latin American literature in college and And I was at graduate school that time so but getting to meet. These people was like so exciting. You know it's sort of like meeting Gods When you're a student you're studying. These people like absolutely amazing. Did you also meet for his? At that time. I actually met him the year before because he was brought to yell to give a lecture and evolve bone. Was there also Savino Campbell about whom we're speaking being cassavetes and all who were triumvirate of sorts? Once they married for fifty years he continued to be their dinner guest and You know he as I said. He said of her that she was clairvoyant. She didn't take many photographs. She did not like to be photographed when you see a picture of Safina or Campo. It's not unusual for hands to be crossed in front of her face and if fast if she were going to this or that party she would sing with this ugly face. Jessica Powell use started to read Cedar Fina under the direction of Jill Levine. Yes I was first introduced to Selena's work many years ago in a translation seminar that I took with Jill when I was a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara and after that class ended Jilin. I decided to collaborate on a novella which was actually the only work that Silvino Compo and her husband Blake Assad wrote together and so it was lower haight which is fantastic and we co translated it. And after that Jill and I started talking about you know Oh wouldn't it be wonderful to translate more of Selena's works and so then in Katie a? New Young came on the scene and she's completing her doctorate and her dissertation is in part on Compo Katie's Latif John worked on the translation of forgotton journey. A book of short pieces. There has been also. I don't want to confuse anyone a book of poetry from the New York review books as well as another book covering the entire spectrum of So Vena or Campos pros. I've found my own beginning point. Were these two thrilling little books. Let's here who would like to read a section of Savino Compo? Who'd like to go start with the first black? I can read a section of the Olive Green Dress. The first paragraph from journey forgotten journey. The very first book of Savino Gone Full. Let's hear the first paragraph of the Olive Green dress the olive green dress. The display windows stepped forward to greet her. The only reason she had left the House that morning was to go shopping. Miss Hilton blushed easily her skin translucent as a waxed paper like those packages who's wrappings reveal. All that's inside but beneath such transparencies where the thinnest layers of mystery behind the branching veins growing a little tree over the surface. She was ageless unjust when one noticed the deepest wrinkles on her face or her long white braids. It was possible to catch an unexpected glimpse of her youth in some childlike gesture. Other times she seemed to have the smooth skin of a young girl and light blonde hair precisely at the moment when she looked as if old age had caught up with her. The first paragraph of a very short story called the Olive Green Dress as I read. The stories seem to escape from me as I moved forward in them. There's a strange quality of presence and absence coal joint as she writes. It's quite extraordinary and this first paragraph. Because it's so zigzag you know I I saw it begins with a very odd sentence received like awkward. How could display windows stepped forward to greet you of course? That's that's very surrealist element of you. Know which was the time she was writing in but you know she she young as she old. It's like going from a woman's You know perception of herself but you were talking about how she felt about. She looked I mean. I thought this is kind of interesting example now. Above of that of of those issues and so as very twisty this is Jill Levine. Who is perhaps the Guardian Angel of these three translators bringing savina Ocampo's writing into our present
