"It's almost like the alternative lives. I don't know what status to give them in in a realistic novel. That would be considered dreams. But in another sort of fiction like slipstream fiction surreal fiction. Those experiences are israel's anything else you know. If you have a nightmare at night it is a psychic experience. That was real. It's not not something that's fiction is actually a nightmare can be real so she does have these these thoughts which someone in her position would probably think one of the things you think is. How can i help. How can i help my spouse you know. How can i help this person who's sort of helpless and in a hospital so we wanna think what we can donate some blood. We can donate a kidney. We can donate a some bone marrow. I mean it's quite possible. Not none of these things are really impassable and they have been done. So i wanted to write about things that were not impassable you know maybe improbable that the mind is sort of reaching out blindly trying to think. How can i help this person. A so much alexis contingent is quite possible that these two this couple when swimming in a lake in upstate new york before they went out to the west and one of those lakes where the waters are warm warmer than usual in the last few years. We don't have the cold winters that we used to. Hey evan in some parts of the world and so the microorganisms. That thrive at ivory young facon in these. These mountain. lakes are not dying out. The they have in the past. They went swimming in this lake. I could see it. In my mind's eye because it's based on a certain mike in upstate new york so in this lake now if you get water up your no it and goes into your brain you can be infected with a very deadly kind of amoeba that might not have existed before it was not a problem before there have been instances of this being reported in in north america so i wanted to suggest that the environment is may be partly to or entirely to blame for what's happening that the environment is not the environment that we grew up with. It's become unaided trauma. Said we're but we don't.

"You know this air of total surprise. The person who's not feeling so well thinks that he'll be in the hospital for you know for tests and he'll go home and then that it turns out that he's going to be there overnight and that's a whole new surprise but then he's not real enough to go home again and something happens. But i i've noticed. Always this era of surprise that there is something in all of our brains a- certainly the united states right now. What we call denial. Maybe it's a cliche people who will not see what is right in front of their eyes. It's actually astonishing. The attitude about approximately one quarter one third of americans who some of them think that the virus is a hoax. That somehow over six hundred thousand people have died. But it's not it's somehow it's not real because they've been told on television program anyway. I'm interested in that strange phenomenon of denial. Because i experienced that myself all along the line is surprise. You know cannot really believe it and people will say well. This is ridiculous you know. I'll be home soon. And i'm fine and so forth and then it just keeps happening sort of like a like a whirlpool so i wanted to delineate that. Then there's a thought to especially between a husband and wife that they wanna talk things over. They wanna discuss things but once this starts to happen. Time accelerates and so much to talk about sunny. It's the next day it's the next day after that and you're in the different time time just flattens and there is a. There isn't any time. So i wanted to write what i would think by the the most complete of documentation of just being at the bedside in hospital vigil. I just wanted to put everything into. And i don't think i've ever read anything like this. So maybe they're headed memoirs. But i really wanted to make drake hand in and very honest including also the fantasies that we have. We have lots of fantasies about alternative lives..

"Gerald who he is which is actually inspired by my late husband. Charlie who was acquitted distinguished neuroscientist. So jared is not at principalities. At harvard he is his really not identical with my my husband and mikhail is not identical with me as i said i was using using them parameters of memoir and really re imagining the same material and save emotions but reimagining them with different people slightly different setting and more of a complicated platt and so it both is and both is an is not based on real people. So jared was is a professor at harvard. And he's interested in going to the west of the united states which is very different from the east. Most obvious signet happens when you go west and go to a place like santa chiara which is inspired by santa fe. Most obvious thing that happens immediately is that you can't pre you're very short of breath because accident is not being utilized by your brain. Your grades not getting enough axa jen and so your heart goes a little faster and you may have a feelings of slight panic. Or maybe just hyper excitement. You enter a different state of consciousness if you're coming from sea level which is where i come from when i go west. So he goes out west and he wants to. He gets very interested in endangered languages. Studying the languages of a number of native american tribes and peoples who are we might call aboriginal native americans whose ancestors very much predate any any white white settlers from england. So we're in a in a landscape that both isn't isn't america or united states. The united states is relatively new nation but north america has been there for you know millions of years and so when americans come to parts of north america or south america they were they moving into regions that predate their own Civilization so jared gets very interested in endangered languages and mcculloch learns that you're the after his death when she's looking at us. Manuscript and mcculloch comes into Some sort of really awkward and.

She's a professor of humanities at princeton university and nyu and today we're going to be talking about joyce's latest novel breeze joyce welcome to little atoms. Tell me first of all how you would describe brees well. That's that's a good question. I guess i should just concede that it is a memoir that has been reimagined as a work of fiction and has a work of fiction. It's an the genre. I would call great intense realism psychological realism. But i also structured it. So that one could read it as a realistic document. More or less with a chronological story but one could also read it as taking place out of time so to speak so the short chapter is our attala sized might be pointing to another time out of time in which mccullough herself is in a fever state. Yeah i said trusted you say eight over libya narrative because you do play around with time in the book because the subject of the book is grief and bereavement and beautifully articulate. That idea that you would just lose your concept of time when shortly after bay bereaved so i wanted to talk more about this. You know this use of time and how time works in the book will yes. I'm very interested in the workings of the human brain. I wrote a novel called the man without a shadow which is about a very. It's was inspired by very famous amnesia. Who is as a cham- in the united states. He was a person who suffered extreme amnesia. therefore he was studied by many neuroscientists including my late husband. Charlie grows so. I'm very interested in the phenomenon of memory. How memory is very volleyball. And how we re imagined and re revise while always thinking that were remembering accurately and very often. We're not and also there there their experiences in consciousness that we just don't comprehend for instance we all of us have anesthesia. Sometimes and our brains are not examine. Exactly put to sleep. The brain is still operating but was what we call our consciousness or eagle has just gone just extinguished but the brain honor and studio is still a living grain. Know something something was going on in it but when we wake up often it doesn't seem as if any time has gone has it all and we can't remember anything. You might have an operation. That could be hours lawn but it will seem like seconds so all these phenomena are somehow in case in human brain and part of our experiences human beings and i'd like to explore them in my fiction a sometimes almost a philosophical perspective sometimes more emotionally immediate in a working with my own experience my own life. I want to talk about two main characters. Michaela and gerard mcmanus. I guess we'll talk about gerald fast because that would probably make michaela happy if we did..

"How do you get the bureaucrats in the health Ministry to approve something like this? Unless the science is really solid unless the tracker profound platform is very solid. Choice. You heard him say, time will tell. There seems to be little doubt now that Russia did do something right and did to it faster than anyone else. A number of experts did cast doubt on their claims early on where they wrong. I mean, Russia definitely took a risk and releasing the vaccine before the face trialing number three was was completed, but but the news we saw on the Lancet article I think it's good news for global immunity. We already have 15 countries that are using the Sputnik vaccine for emergency purposes. But as you said, I'm not. There are still unanswered questions from scientists and experts, basically that the trial design did not follow international standards for safety and efficacy. And that that was an issue all along. The second issue was the lack of transparency on that the positive findings were presented without the level off detail needed And appropriate be review that we saw with other vaccines approved by the FDA, For example, the authors of the Lancet article. Actually, they do say that the trial and Moscow lacked ethnic diversity to make sure that the vaccine is safe on non white groups. So Uh, that what we saw with you know, 91.6% is good news. Uh, but we don't have enough data at this point. And, uh, the U. S and Britain are saying today that they're not in a hurry to approve the Sputnik vaccine Joyce given some of those concerns around Russia's processes, are there other concerns about some of the other countries you mentioned who are using it for emergency purposes now. We haven't seen many red flags, for example, from the U, a E or Argentina that are using this vaccine, but it's still you know front when it comes to the U. S. When it comes to Europe. Only handful off countries have approved it, so I think the jury is still out. But they have good reference now with the Lancet. Uh, you know, uh, approving them, and, uh, commanding their their efforts. I'm a man of Oz. You're listening to one, eh? A reminder. We are speaking with Nancy use it from the Wall Street Journal. Joyce Carol, Washington correspondent for the National and Indira Lakshmanan, senior executive editor at National Geographic. On Wednesday, the United States and Russia agreed to extend a crucial nuclear arms control treaty until 2026. That agreement was due to expire today. Indira. That treaty is called the Start Treaty. Tell us what we need to know about it and what you took away from that announcement. Yeah, absolutely. It's really some of the biggest news this week. I did want to just add one thing. To the good information that Joyce was giving us about the Russian Sputnik five vaccine, which is from a scientific point of view, One thing that's really interesting about that vaccine is that it is a different process. It's a regimen that uses two different, harmless cold viruses called the dental viruses. As opposed to the M R N a technology being used by Madonna Fizer by on tech, which were approved here in the U. S. And so it's really interesting. If that turns out to be a good and valid vaccine, which the Lancet reports seems to show. We've written a lot about this at National Geographic about the science behind it. And obviously the whole world wants to broaden the number of vaccines that are available, particularly in poor countries, and the Russian vaccine is one that was being used in a low income country and guinea in West Africa on the start treaty. This is really interesting because the Trump administration Somewhat controversially in the last months of it's administration was basically trying to use its leverage on the renewal of the U. S. Russia New Start Accord which verifies limits on Russian and American intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine launched ballistic missiles. And heavy bombers. And essentially, the Trump Administration was trying to say We're not going to renew this deal unless you bring in all of your nuclear posture into this, and they wanted to make it a three way treaty with China's nuclear arsenal included in it, too, which, by the way is not a bad idea. Because right now, the world knows about Russia and the United States checking each other, But you know, there are no checks on China and that respect. Um but But, you know, Joe Biden had campaign saying he was going to renew it. Without conditions, and he did renew it for five years until 2026. So when the good news side of the ledger it does keep in place this mutual verification regime in the could be better side of the ledger. It certainly would be better toe have you no more visibility into other forms of you know, nuclear weapons? From Russia, but I think this was seen as an important thing because there's so much tension in the US Russian relationship over cyber Navalny. S so many other things on do Trump Administration harder. You pulled out of two other treaties that were designed to reduce the chances of accidental war. Nancy let me ask you about Indira's mentioning their of us trying to bring China into this there. The man who represents the U. S on the UN's disarmament conferences, Ambassador Robert Wood on Thursday. He called for a new arms control, Dr saying, quote. United States will also seek to engage China on nuclear arms control and risk reduction. As Indira just mentioned Nancy when it comes to nuclear weapons..

"The Friday News round up on one A. We're hearing from Nancy Yusef from the Wall Street Journal. Joyce Carol, Washington correspondent for the National and Indira Lakshmanan, senior executive editor at National Geographic. In Myanmar Police have now filed several charges against the country's elected civilian leader on Song Souci. This follows the military coup on Monday. The exact whereabouts of the Nobel Peace Prize winner remain unclear. She has not been seen nor has the country's president since the military seized power. Indira. There has long been tension between the military and the government. Talk to me about the timing. Why did the army choose this moment to do this? Yeah, well, um as the listeners to this show, or where, in November, just a couple months ago on Sun Suit, Cheese National League for Democracy and L D, the main opposition party won more than 77%. Of the seats in parliament in what international observers were calling the country's first free and fair election. Well, first in 2010. That was the first free and fair election in 25 years. Now, 10 years later, they want an even bigger amount of support, which was there for giving on San Souci in a way Backing and a mandate for the kinds of reforms and lessening of the military's role that she has been pushing for cause. Remember in these last 10 years suit she has You know, sort of been running the country, but not really. She's been a state councilor alongside the Myanmar military, which has maintained significant power. In some ways, you know, she has really tainted her reputation in the eyes of the world. As you mentioned she was a Nobel Peace Prize winner for her very brave and determined willingness to be in her home country. When she could have been sitting pretty and safely in Britain. She had a British husband and kids, but instead, she came back to her home country and endured Many, many years of house arrest in her fight for democracy. But in the last few years she's tainted that reputation by supporting the Myanmar military not only at home but in international courts in what most of the world considers to be a genocide of the Muslim Rohingya minority People in me and Mar Bond. She went along with it and basically endorsed it and said it was not a genocide campaign. But I think the spark for this at this point was that the military didn't want her to have this mandate to roll back their power, Limited and move Maurine the direction of parliamentary democracy. And they've arrested her. They've charged her with some pretty thin charges about you know, Importing some walkie talkies on day have absolutely no proof that the November elections were falsified and fraudulent, which is what they've been claiming, and U. S. Officials have now weighed in late On Thursday, President Biden made his first public remarks on the military takeover. And he called out those in power just to note U. S official policy is to use the country's former name of Burma. They say that they use Myanmar as a courtesy in certain communications. But here's what President Biden said the Burmese military should relinquish power they have seized Release the advocates and activist and officials they have detained, lift the restrictions on telecommunications and refrain from violence. Nancy President Biden also threatened new sanctions. We know the United Nations has also condemned the coup. What's the latest that we know about what exactly is unfolding on the ground in Myanmar? And what happens next? So let's start with on the ground. We've seen that the government is blocked Facebook after residents there started posting photos of people banging pots and pans and support of on sushi on Santucci of people hold up three fingers, Hunger games reference, signaling resistance. And it's a big deal there because Facebook is used by half the population is the most dominant social media platform. And, of course, um, it's signals and effort to suppress any protest. This is Relatively, Um uh On the streets of Milan, where we haven't seen protests. I think the way that some would expect out of fear and this was sort of the first step towards speaking out and the military controlled government shut that down immediately. You mentioned sanctions earlier in the world response. What's been interesting as we've seen sort of two tranches of responses. If you will, from the U. S and the EU and France. We've seen a demand that that the On song She she and her colleagues be released. But we've seen from other countries in the region in particular, stop short of that and say that they want the Sustainment of sort of a democratic system in Myanmar. The most. I think important response comes from Japan because they have close ties with Myanmar, and in the last years, Japanese businesses have expanded their investment there. We saw protests in Tokyo in response to what happened. They're calling for their government to do more, but from the government's perspective, they see sanctions as something that could push me and mark closer to China. And what was interesting is the top government spokesman there sidestepped that question about whether they Japanese government would support sanctions. And so I think Japan will be the leader in terms of setting the world reactions. Response. In Myanmar specifically whether sanctions are effective. And, uh, um, effective response or not, and remind our listeners that saying passed sanctions were against the very military commanders who who launched this coup so that certainly as a data point, an indicator of How effective they could be well. Meanwhile, a crackdown in Russia has also caught the world's attention. Street protests last weekend led to more than 5000 people being arrested on Tuesday, Another 1400 people were detained for supporting jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny. America's new Secretary of state, Tony Blinken, was asked earlier this week to respond to allegations made by the Kremlin of quote unquote gross interference by the United States. Here's what he told NBC's Andrea Mitchell. The Russian government makes a big mistake. If it believes that this is about us, it's not. It's about them. It's about the government. It's about the frustration. That the Russian people have with corruption with kleptocracy should the U. S sanction the backers of Vladimir Putin as punishment for what has already happened to the volley. Actually, we're revealing a serious of Russian actions that are deeply deeply disturbing, Nancy. We know President Biden had his first phone call with Putin last week. We know he's taken a tougher stance. You hear Blinken saying they're reviewing all of these actions. How much pressure can the U s exert right now? Well, that's an interesting question, because, um, technically, we could see more sanctions on on Russian response to this. Um, but the balance I think is on one hand supporting democratic exercises of speech and other processes happening in Russia. At the same time, you'll hear Russians exploit that and say, and call Navalny, a Russian agent in their push to signal to their population that Navalny does not speak for for the Russian people. And so I think that's the sort of fine line that the U. S will find itself. Trying to walk. I think in the most in the more immediate period, we could see more sanctions, but again are those effective and stopping what Russia seizes as one of the biggest threats to Putin's Putin's tenure. Reminder. We are speaking with Nancy Yusef from the Wall Street Journal. Joyce Karen, Washington correspondent for the National, and Indira Lakshmanan, senior executive editor at National Geographic, while another piece of news from Russia that gave some reason to pause last year, Russia was the first to claim It had come up with a covert 19 vaccine this week. Results published by The Lancet in the UK said that the Sputnik five vaccine gives around 92% protection against covert 19. We've pulled this clip from August of last year.

And obviously the whole world wants to broaden the number of vaccines that are available, particularly in poor countries, and the Russian vaccine is one that was being used in a low income country and guinea in West Africa on the start treaty. This is really interesting because the Trump administration Somewhat controversially in the last months of it's administration was basically trying to use its leverage on the renewal of the U. S. Russia New Start Accord which verifies limits on Russian and American intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine launched ballistic missiles. And heavy bombers, and essentially, the Trump Administration was trying to say We're not going to renew this deal unless you bring in all of your nuclear posture into this, and they wanted to make it a three way treaty with China's nuclear arsenal included in it, too. Which, by the way is not a bad idea, because right now the world knows about Russia and the United States checking each other, But you know, there are no checks on China and that respect. Um but but, you know, Joe Biden had campaigned, saying he was going to renew it. Without conditions, and he did renew it for five years until 2026. So when the good news side of the ledger it does keep in place this mutual verification regime in the could be better side of the ledger. It certainly would be better toe have you no more visibility into other forms of you know, nuclear weapons? From Russia. But I think this was seen as an important thing because there's so much tension in the US Russian relationship over cyber Navalny, um so many other things on but Trump administration harder. He pulled out of two other treaties that were designed to reduce the chances of accidental war. Nancy Let me ask you about Indira's mentioning their of us trying to bring China into this there. A man who represents the U. S on the UN's disarmament conferences, Ambassador Robert Wood on Thursday He called for a new arms control, Dr. Saying quote the United States will also seek to engage China on nuclear arms control and risk reduction as Indira just mentioned. Nancy when it comes to nuclear weapons. Is there any sign that China might be ready to come in from the cold? Well, I mean, they conversation started between the United States and China under the Trump administration, and it really stalled. There was no indication that China was, um, um, ready to jump on immediately. I think, um, well, Ambassador Woods Commons are illuminating. I think that the devil becomes in the details in terms of who's going to lead those negotiations. How aggressively will they go after them? I think this will be a long term effort. Rather than one that can be turned around immediately. I think on one hand, China wants to be seen and respected as an international player in treaters like this, But I think the indication so far is that it will play tough in terms of the specifics of the of the deal itself. Well, you're listening to the Friday news round up. We're speaking with Nancy Yusef from The Wall Street Journal with Joyce Carom, Washington correspondent for.

"To There's a variety store close by the school hardly changed at all, where he parts to get a pack of Lucky's. And just as he's leaving, he runs into this woman, Jakey he'd known in high school back before she was married, and he was married, and she's in tight shorts that show the swell of her buttocks and her small round stomach and a Tank top blouse like a young girl would wear looking good with her fleshy, smiling mouth and her eyes shadowed and silvery blue and her leg's still long and trim, though a little bunch E at the knees. At first, it almost seems Jakey doesn't recognize him. But then, of course she does, and they get to talking and laughing, and it's clear. She likes him looking at her like that, asking him questions about his job and where he's living now since the divorce and what's his ex wife doing, and then they get to talking about old friends in high school classmates, Guys, he hung around with some of them. They haven't seen or heard of in years. So you'd wonder, are they Still alive, but better not to ask. And gradually, they run out of things to say, but neither wants to break away just yet. They're smiling so hard at each other and standing a little close to them, you'd ordinarily stand. Jake is a kind of woman likes to touch a man's arm when she talks, and he's thinking of thought he'd had before, and probably She has two that the marriage is by Mauer more or less interchangeable. Like objects blurring in a rearview mirror as you speed away, but also it's the warm, lazy smelling of soft tar from the streets and sirens in the distance. Or it's the freight train. Like those childhood sounds, you hear it might melancholy and sweet, sounding with the Power to make your eyes fill with tears. And they see themselves off somewhere hardly undressing in the frantic, hungry couple ing in the orgasm protracted for each as in slow motion, and the sweaty, stunned aftermath. Valedictory kisses. Caresses stammered words. All that they aren't going to do, but they've locked together, seeing it and Jake's eyes look dilated, and he's feeling the impact of it as if somebody were pushing hard on his chest with an open hand so that he almost can't breathe. Honey, was that sweet The words he isn't going to say, and Jake. You can't think of what to say, either. So they back off from each other. And she says, Take care. And he says, Okay, you, too, and he gets in his car and drives off sad feeling and excited and eager to be gone all at once, Knowing Not to bother looking for her in the rear view mirror. He's accelerating so fast. Sonia Manzano Red August evening by Joyce Carol Oates at a program of flash fiction at which I also got the chance to perform. Class fiction.

"Let's see what writers that inspired you most. Will you mentioned Jody McDonald Travis? Mcgee certainly him in Fleming John McCurry Raymond Chandler as much I love. I mean he's an institution he was not really a plot driven author. The box kind of he was a but Marlowe in the characters. He created Are just start. You want to spend time with him and forgive me if I mentioned Dashiell Hammett before the thin man series and lean books. I like that economical books. I liked I like literary fiction. Theodore dreicer. I liked never heavyweight fan. I must admit I saw favorite literary writer I. Thomas Harris sounds of the lambs was absolutely wonderful. And Lord of the Rings I Love I love. The hobbits and there are some. Some people never buy a book environment and I have to say I have not read Harry Potter reporter but I didn't quite get into Harry Potter and it may be my Lord of the rings when it comes to fancy hard to. It's hard to top Tolkien. Let's see what advice would you offer to someone who would like to write for a living? I teach a course on writing a four hour or we obviously don't have time to do that. Now I will do is tell you. Let's see let me put it this way. I'll do I'll say sixty six and initially serious about this And your Your listeners may want to jot this down or or recorded and remembered if you if you want to be a commercial fiction writer and the first thing is that you you need to write in the that you read. Don't think you're gonNA make a million dollars writing about vampires if you don't read vampire books number two. You need to know where you're going you need to have the story planned out ahead of time Joyce Carol oates said. You can't write your first sentence until you know what your last sentences is. And as I said they're people who outlined like me and there are people who don't I think it's better to outline it's easier Dow. The next to rule is to rewrite rewrite revise rewrite. I rewrite each book of mind forty or fifty times before it goes to publish and then I rewrite it significantly after that when I get there comes then I would say. Don't rush take your time. Many potentially very good offers a do not end up being published. Don't end up with a success. They deserve because they they race through the book to get to the agent or the publisher and it's not ready to go and when it's rejected. They raced self published. Nothing wrong with that. But you should at least exhaust every potential opportunity for traditional publishing self publish and number five. You have to remember that a rejection is just a speed bump it's not a brick wall you're gonNA get rejected millions of times. Forget about it being facetious will. You'll get rejected a lot. Just don't worry about it. He going and then the sixth thing. I'm going to tell you that you need to write a book that moves. You need to write a book in which You create living breathing characters and every step of the way. They are confronted with questions that are not immediately answered and conflicts. That are not immediately resolved until the end of the book or along in the book. Of course the main plot you're not going to give the answer to who the killer until the very end but there'll be conflicts along the way and you need to resolve those. Keep those questions going to the right away. Enter chapter with the big question. Don't answer it in the next chapter. Answer it two or three chapters later but make sure you answer all of them so that in a nutshell is by four hour orse and made me. I'm wasting time doing for our could charge my students a lot less and we can go out for a beer afterwards if the six elements that sounds good. let's see. I don't want to keep you too long as I promised to. Keep this to twenty minutes. I think we have another. We've got. We've got a few minutes left. I got this is my or your listeners. Don't know this is my book. Tour is satellite interview. So I do one interview after another to do so okay so I will take the next few nights to just say. You have a favorite of the books you've written. I do my book. Called Garden of beasts. It's a thriller set in Berlin in Nineteen thirty six about a hitman that the mob in New York recruited by the government our government to go over to Germany and assassinate an aide to Adolf. Hitler was helping helping him rearm the country out. We knew then historically accurate we knew in one thousand nine hundred eighty six which is when the Berlin Olympics occurred that Hitler was a bad guy and he was going to extend the Nazi regime and do a very bad things. We didn't know what we didn't know about the concentration camps and the final solution at that. But we do have some evil things in mind and so a the fact that we sent this man over to assassinate. That's my fictional. Take Acts but we meet real characters in the book footing. Hitler Guide Good Bulls and Some of the more despicable era there's ended is one awards. It's a book that took me two years to write and I will say that an elderly man came to one of my book signings and he was a Jew who escaped in one thousand nine. Thirty six just Kristallnacht. Which is when the Nazis colors and began burning books destroying Setagaya a Jewish businesses. And he said it was the most accurate book about life in Berlin at time that he had ever read. And I brought the horror of this insidious movement as it seeps way into people's lives to live in a way that he never read before and that alone was better than any review. I've ever read in the sales figures. That just moved me very much. So that answered your questions. My favorite book. It's fantastic. That's a great story Is there anything else you'd like to save before we wrap up Noah Conversation Debbie? Well I will say this so the never game was the first Nicole. Two shot series goodbye.

"Together for this show Joyce Carol Oates and it got a carrot and we're finishing it up with uplifting story by adults and just a word for parents of younger children this story is funny but it's also pretty gory here's Becky and hissing sounds like snakes first came to me through the steam Draghi ada waking open mouth the inside of my mouth raw and festering from what had been done to it while I've been made to sleep but drugs sleep in this terrible place then the whisper of hope this yes the room I was assigned at St Clement house this was the first insult this was unforgivable the room the bed bed with the lobby smelly mattress on a high floor of the house had to climb stairs with my swollen ankles wait acting like a dog had to make my way along the winding corridor like a rat in a maze in the Salt at my age pre diabetic was the diagnosis I put tension to be assigned such sleeping quarters in a bloody attic low ceiling no previously I would have to share a dreary dripping lap a tree with strangers it was not fair or just St Clement's house where residents all the staff and the staff a residence you will look out for one another they told us smug **** all of them there are he did not assist nurses aides attendance but not many of these and so we are all obliged to assist one another unpaid when required Dr Schumacher is the resident psychologist but Dr S. does not reside in the house does not linger in the house any longer than is necessary the Boston is clear of us by five PM and on his way I was meant to be an equal of doctor S. prime educated but was she said that my destiny by reason of my sex female also on the knowledge the enemies in the government after my discharge from the hospital well I was kept against my volition for eight months deemed not ready to return to a normal life and show sentenced to a halfway house as it is laughably called half way house cities I know the worst insult to be assigned one of the fifth floor dormer rooms went fifty three I am old enough to be the grandmother of most of the residents and I am not a junkie or a spouse I am not Gaga like Sam I am not a filled the slot hardly but forced to cohabit with such crippled specimens of humanity for the sake of a bed and food to eat until I'm well enough again to live by myself and tend to my own needs my only friend does not live here my dear friend like a sister I have known since St Agatha's grade school is pretty streets who is my agents that like me in with a plain honest face like raw bread dough and when I am well enough again Chris Reeves has said I'm not live with half in a room in her house if I could pay just a few dollars a week to help with rent and expenses it is very surprising piece rings is a cleaning woman for the prime minister himself would you believe that yes it is so for thirty years Chris Reeves has worked for the same cleaning service that is assigned to the PM's residence at queen square but if you asked the woman what the PM is like she will blink and Stammen seem not to know guess it didn't see much of them any of them adult female not like me well I've known that prince remains clean the PM's residence and had done so for many years but it never struck me much until the other day waking like I did stand and swallowing not knowing if that's where the hell I was he sang in the radiator this I love the sound of that word assassin not killing not murder those a common words not even execution that though if there is something about this word I am beginning to admire yes executioner in the service of fairness and justice the help of my room on the fifth floor and how we are fed here in the hot tub warehouse to Louis L. meal one morning when I spat out a mouthful onto my spoon disgusted to see what resembled a small Huizen piece of meat your own hot the whisper came to me laughing yes the idea of assassination did not occur to me but sometimes I lose track of the days since that time but it might have been a month at least what began in the hissing in a dream and spread out of the dream like a potato sprouting roots and thanks oil sin some it came to me that I would saw off the head of the arrogant blasted prime minister this would be my destiny not the other not to be docked to S. and loaded over the mentally enfeebled addicts and slacks by being cheated the bacteria but this I would not be cheated up and go down in history like the Hebrew Judith and her triumph over Holofernes I was slow to realize into accepted you would have been if you had won a lottery and did not dare to believe want the win me almost I could hear the crowds applauding on the TV hateful arrogant son of a **** the PM what you so clearly on TV a bachelor he was never married no worse than any of them in any of the political parties but the PM is the top dog deserving of his bloody head sold off and feeding the very person who scrubbed his filthy toilet should be the one to start it off is the no one notices us this will be our revenge short squat middle aged female like priest rings me move through the world invisible she I have bunions varicose veins swollen ankles she I also short of breath making our way up stance hello well short of breath making away downstairs not five foot three one hundred seventy pounds known as glanced at us in decades not a man or boy in memory we are deserving of respect as any of you yet we do not receive your bloody respects the bloody hell with you in this is us strength and this Hanson in the figure of a middle aged cleaning woman flush faced and panting on the stairs breasts like balloons collapsed to her waist factitious thighs and buttocks in a nylon uniform would suspect what is man that cal that's the cleaning woman for Christ's sake mind let up through something like this it was that transpired that morning very cleverly I ground up a half dozen sleeping pills to dissolve in REITs coffee which the woman so dilutes with cream and sugar it is not even coffee any longer but some disgusting sugar concoction and they are trying to say to me that I am the one who was pre diabetic and so there was no difficulty for me to put on PRI's rinse uniform when she was fast asleep and snoring with her boss mouth agape and indeed the stretch waist nylon trousers fitted me like a fist in a glove no difficulty for me to impersonate pre screen so is near enough to me to be a twin sister so that even if the security guard had thought to actually look at me he'd have seen Chris rinks and not me well it was Chris rea inside the photo pin to my bosom slumping to my waist and he would not have given that ID photo a second glance either out of repugnant for that sort of female bosom also Chris Reeves one insipid knitted cap to discuss the thinning hair which suited me too okay mom go on through if a man does glance at you if you are pre screens me his eyes were glazed with boredom not for an instant does he see wades through security without a hitch exactly as planned dragging a vacuum clean on wheels mop and bucket canvas bag in which was stopped sundry cross brushes and cleaning materials from innocent queries posed to prince reads I have ascertained which corridor to take into the prime minister's private rooms and then swiftly I left behind the cleaning items and sold out the bloody busted in the swanky interior for whom I was feeling a fierce hatred as if in a dream of the night before the PM had insulted me to my face as so many others have done you would be surprised as I what has swiftly I moved on my swollen ankles which would make me realize and reflecting back over this episode how the assassination was a foregone conclusion like a final move in a chess game except until recently the assassin had not been named and I would wonder if they had sold out others as the assassin in this case and these others had proved inferior and so they had settled upon me with the knowledge that I would not disappoint for they must have known it for me my previous life my education that had come to nothing the shop most of my intelligence blunted by myriad disappointments of which not a single one was my fault in the man's bedroom in his black silk stocking feet that the PM stood before a three way mirror frowning as he bought in the crease ironed white cotton dress shirt with his back to the door unsuspecting for pre streams would never have dead end to any room in the residence without knocking meekly before and if there was no knock there could be no intrusion and if no intrusion by a stranger there could be no sudden blow to the head from behind so swift rushing into the pin number of the mirror there was no chance for the targeted one to draw a graph to escape the hard blow of the puter and selected from a mantle family cracking the egg shells skull in that moment you will know what to do and should do what's his voice had instructed out of the ratty eight and so it was in adjoining room kitchen that will fancy shop knives on the magnet board and all of these I selected a knife with a double serrated blade and for the next half hour or more I was engaged in sawing off the head of the bloody PM as he lay helpless on the floor on a fancy thick pile carpet this career politician as he was known to have so many enemies in our country any number of them would have read choice in my actions and thank me for my patriotism two seven a living head from a living body is no easy task and it is very bloody and tiring as you might imagine but the PM was deeply unconscious from the blow to the skull and could put up little resistance the head as I would call it was mine as soon as they had was cleanly severed from the body it was larger than you would think and it was heavier very bloody with veins and sinews and twitching nav stripping nonstop from the ragged neck and the skin of the face was Colson darkening as with chagrin and the eyes were half shut droopy lidded like a drunkard's and that which was in grizzled gray and not a handsome whitish silver such as you are accustomed to seeing on the prime minister in his public appearances I have peace which evidently the PM would fix upon his head when he left his school this missing piece so you love the wise cracking issued from my lips on beaten I wondered if this would be a new trait of mine a coquettish sort of which it was very unlike my usual self in the presence of men I can testify they had was too stunned to respond of the eyes they left it all but disappeared inside that socket while the right was trying very hard to fix me and focus to determine what was what for the PM had not gotten to his position in the government without being shop waited out of kindness as much as mischief I sought out the hand piece in an adjoining bathroom and this I placed upon the new bald scalp and adjusted as best I could for even as the capitated state the PM was something of a ladies man almost you have to smile to register man's vanity at such a time soon then I would exit the PM's chambers trailing vacuum cleaner mop bucket canvas bag and in the back wrapped in plastic to prevent the blood from soaking through the head and a dollop of disinfectant to make the nostrils peach leaving the PM's residence you're not scrutinized this is the only precaution against bringing a deadly instrument into the residence and when you exited by different dole still it was sadly not yet eight AM and if they have their wits about them they might have wondered why the keening woman was leaving so early but indeed they took no more notice of how than a fly buzzing to be let out from PRI's Reince I knew that a shiny black limousine to bed the PM across town to the capitol building would not be until eight thirty AM and so no one would miss the deceased until belong the headless body I had left covered with a quote from the disheveled bed this is the body is not of much interest and interchangeable with others about sex it seems to me interest rates rubber soled shoes with Chris Reince ID photo removed from my person and a close knit nylon caught again of an unusual shade of lavender that resembled

"joyce carol" Discussed on The Rookie Writer Show

"Hi everybody welcome to season two episode eight of the rookie writer show. We ARE REVIEWING JOYCE. Carol oates teaches the art of the short story which is a masterclass from the outstart. Let me just say Joyce. Carol oates teaching a masterclass in your living room or while you're driving to work or wherever I mean how can you not? It's Joyce Carol oates in case you haven't ever heard of her. Here's a thumbnail sketch. She's written almost sixty novels and many many many short stories novellas poetry essays. She still figures out how to be pretty active on twitter. Somehow so you might have seen her there. She's taught at Princeton and Berkeley and this class is basically the same thing she teaches in the spring. At least she says in the class she won her first major award. Which was the National Book Award for her novel them in Nineteen sixty-nine but she has some o Henry Awards the National Humanities Medal and the Jerusalem prize racked up as well. She's been a finalist for the Pulitzer several times for Both her novels including Blackwater. What I lived for and Blonde and her short story collections. The wheel of love and lovely dark deep. And you may know her from her Oprah Book Club Selection. We were the movies back. In the day Joyce Carol oates covers both the principles of short fiction writing and like the best mentors do mindset. I appreciate the way she breaks down her own most famous story. Where are you going? Where have you been and along with one of Ernest Hemingway's earlier stories Indian camp and the stories of two of our students if you haven't ever had the chance to be a part of a workshop the last lessons in this Masterclass ARE PRETTY GOOD. Introduction as to how workshops generally unfold okay. Let's get to my three things number one there's writing and there's rating. She does break her writing work into three different stages. She likes to research thoroughly daydream about her work. When she's Alpher runs doing menial chores. Whip through fast first draft and then revise like crazy. She's another successful author advising you to write fast. If he can in fact she urges you to have your writing be somewhat proportional to the amount of time it takes for a person to read it so most short stories can be finished in one sitting for instance. You probably won't be able to do that. But consider trying to keep the writing of your first draft of short story to a few hours or maybe a few sessions over the course of a week or so something like that. On the same note she urges you to write the first draft of a novel quickly as well and warns that if you Polish or early chapters too soon the beginning of anything really too soon you'll become too attached to it and then when you need to change them because something that happens later you'll be more resistant to what needs to happen to make your book or story as good as it can be. She pairs the suggestion with the understanding. That you'll need likely to revise revise revise or is she says buys as much as you need okay. My number two from the beginning of her career oats books have had social commentary despite the fact that women were expected to write about more domestic issues when she started so she tips her hat to those writers who write those issues well about home in our but she's fascinated with broad sociological and political issues and darker more taboo topics at one point early in her career. A reviewer admonished her to leave the novel of Social Unrest to Norman Mailer and she thought that was funny and I love her for that anyway. She encourages you to write. What fascinates you and to bear witness where you can especially for those who've been silenced or eliminated do whether or not it's something a writer like you quote unquote should do. She has great confidence that you will find an audience out there for it. However when you write about issues be mindful of the fact that your readers are most likely to connect with the characters who are experiencing the effects of those issues so as tyree Jones Author of American Marriage Once said that her mentor told her right about people and their problems. Don't write about problems and their people and I would add if you are a person that does not fit the demographic that you are writing about please consider having your work read by sensitivity readers and there is an earlier episode about that. If you search through the rookie writer show dot net. It should be on there somewhere. Okay number three. Get your writing out to other people. There are several reasons to do. This here are two of my favorite. Joyce Carol OATES says it helps. Make it clear when you're being too clever or to settle because so many writers were about being too obvious. Readers can sometimes get lost or be confused and if you heard the episode That I did on Lisa Kron. You should hear. Echoes of that right now. Anyway you want to be clear about what's happening in your story. You want the readers to understand what's happening in your story really tough to know what that is and whether or not it's it's landing if you don't ever let anyone read it. Joyce Carol oates suggest that you air towards over explaining. Sometimes she says quote. You can be very obvious and your editor can always take it out and the other reason that it's important to get things out to other people that I that really resonated with me is that it helps you to practice finishing things you have to finish something even a first draft for someone to be able to read it. It's a great motivator. It's why I started enjoying different critique groups at different times in my rating life. Here's the hack from Joyce. Carol oates save things later. She does a lot of research for her books as well. And when you're revising she suggests you go through your notes and note in some way she uses. Check marks if you've used that particular piece of research or invention or character quirk or whatever the story if not it's there for us at a later time if you like. Here's my weekly quotation from her. And it's a big one because it's Joyce Carol oates and I WanNa hear what she has to say so here. We go caregivers. People pleasers givers of all varieties especially pleased. Listen Up to what she has to say. Here comes quote. The only thing that's bad for writing is being interrupted. You have to have time to write and while it probably seems obvious. You're probably living a life with a lot of interruptions and you say well. I'll try not to be interrupted. But that's probably the great danger right. Now of creativity is being interrupted a lot. Some of it is self interruption looking at a cell phone looking at twitter looking at the news or email or whatever you elect to interrupt yourself and so the brain's neurological continuity gets a little jostled if you're in a relationship with people. They make all these inroads interruptions. Now you love them very much but you're going to have to get away from all these interruptions you can't possibly work or create anything of worth if people are constantly interrupting you. It's this constant giving you have to at some point. Go into a room. Close the door and tell people not come in. If you can't do that you have to run away. Constant interruptions are the destruction of the imagination. Your worst enemy to your creativity. We'll have your most beloved face someone you can't say no to so we have to sort of run away and hide. The great enemy of writing isn't your own lack of talent your own lack of industry. It's being interrupted. I love it so much anyway. This class will take you around four amazing encouraging stimulating. But also some house then like ours. She spends a lot of time on various aspects of short story craft far beyond what? I could summarize here again. I always only pull out three little things that resonated with me in particular I would one hundred percent recommend this class to any fiction writer. But if you're short story writer I think you have to really strongly consider it. There are two ways to access a masterclass individual classes cost ninety bucks and you get to keep them forever or there's an all access pass around one hundred and eighty dollars annually. I believe Fifteen bucks a month That gives you access to every class but when your subscription runs out so does your access to those classes. It was really fun hanging out with Joyce Carol oates I especially loved it because she still has a little bit of that upstate. New York accent. That's reminds me of home but truly anyone who's on the fence about this. I would totally push you to give it a whirl. It was really well spent time on my part. I hope this was helpful to you. Oh One last thing. I also have links to Joyce. Carol oates short-story collections including the ones that I mentioned that we're up for the Pulitzer. Check those out next week. I'll be applying the same approach to my rookie book. Report on Lay Flung Writing Habits by Chris Fox until then happy writing people..

"joyce carol" Discussed on The Frame

"Chuck Politics First. Novel was already a success when it was made into a nineteen ninety. Nine movie with Brad Pitt. The first rule of club is you do not talk about second rule of Fight Club is you do not talk folks about fight club and now politics. Latest book offers a new set of rules so to speak but for writing. It's called consider this moments in in my writing life after which everything was different but for writer whose work has often pushed the limits of what's acceptable especially when it comes to sex violence silence and graphic imagery. How does politic expect a person to write something new and original while following a set of rules? You know there's a difference is between writing which you're born to write and how you write what you were born. The right and the mistake that I see with so many beginning writers is it. They take a story that is so close to them. It is the story of their abuse. It it's the story of why they no longer fit in the world this enormous enormous source of personal pain. And they tell it using very conventional very mundane writing methods and they completely dishonored the story and they take a very powerful story and in effect reduce it to a kind of comedy they make it really the now and laughable which is their intention. I'm GonNa ask you to read a section from your book it starts at as Highlight and goes on to the next page. My guess this is that people haven't a clue how to get along. They need a structure rules and roles to play once. Those were established people can gather author and compare their lives they can learn from each other. Tom Span Bauer always said writers right because they weren't invited into a party unquote so bear in mind that the reader is also alone. The reader is more likely to feel socially awkward and crave a story that offers a way to be in the company of others. That is so much about how the audience receives a story and how the rider rider has to in some ways. Kind of figure out what they are going to be receptive to and it feels like that is alchemy that. There's no way to really teach that that you have to understand it as trying to write about how to write. Is it hard to put in words that special relationship between author and receiver. I don't even ever consider that relationship. You know the only time I consider. It is isn't workshop when I am testing the premise for An odd way an odd form of voice in a story and I'll bring a sample or I'll bring in a situation and I'll read it and workshop and really listen to People's People's visceral reaction with the day laugh or grown or whether there's a sharp intake of breath because that's the best feedback you can get and also you can listen for the kind kind of silence that shows. They're not paying attention anymore. Does it ever surprise you. The way that stories are received because there's so many different ways that people interpret fight club for example. Hey I always fall back on role in Barth the death of the author. It's not my job. I just make the Rohrschack thing. I don't tell you what it means means. We're talking with writer. Chuck politic several of your books and short stories have been adapted into film Notch Fight Club but choke the short film romance when you're working on an adaptation of a book or a story. What does that teach you about? Storytelling going forward or they totally separate Britt experiences that are thanks unto themselves. You know I have never written the adaptations. The only thing I've done is written the sequels to fight club in graphic graphic novel form and that was a fantastic learning process telling the stories and depicting motion in still in the sequence of still images was was great was a huge challenge. I want to tell the stories that at this point in history only books can tell you know. I want to tell the stories is that are too dangerous to be made literal enough that they can be filmed that that the stories that can't be shown on an airplane that that can't can't be shown on television even on any of the streaming services. Otherwise I should be screenwriting. What is it about that that you just don't I don't want to be homogenized? You think that those stories aren't the stories that you were born to tell my best teacher. Thomspon Bauer my first day in his class. I really Nice Story. I mean cheever would be really proud of this story. It was such a nice story and Tom said in the Taoist world of ten thousand things. What does this story has to offer? That is worth people's time and attention and will make it stand find out in this world that has already so crowded with things and I got it that I wanNA write things to stand out in the world of ten thousand things I want to ask you about some of the authors that you cite in your book because something occurred to me. I'll read the names and you might see it yourself. Bret the eastern Ellis F Scott Fitzgerald. John Steinbeck John Barren armistead Maupin. Amy Hempel Cormac McCarthy Tim. O'Brien Stephen King. A bunch. The white guys mostly twenty twenty first century authors. Is that your area. I also I. I never stop blowing blowing the trumpet for Naming Moon. Have you read naming moon miles from nowhere every time somebody comes up and says I'm a high school teacher. What should my kids read? I say they should be reading and Junot Diaz a naming moon and maybe Sherman Alexi. Okay Oh very good authors. Amy Moon is glorious as she is she is Asian American Dennis Johnson and so they should also be reading Dennis Johnson but You know white people have been in the pipeline longer are. So there's there's more to recommend but how do you change a model where it's not only different voices that are heard but different stories that are heard. How do you start getting the Conventions Publishing and book buying change that people are more receptive to hearing different voices? Will there was a fantastic book. A couple years ago called the program era by a man named Mark my girl and it was all about the history of the MFA writing programs in in the United States in the twentieth century and one of the ideas he supports throughout the book. Is that fiction. Had To be standardized Andrew dice in order to be graded With standard grades and so that all of American literary fiction eventually had to fit into One of three slots was a techno modernism. which would be like Gaddis or pension or David Foster Wallace Another one was cultural pluralism high cultural pluralism. which would be anything from I kind of outsider marginalized voice It would be naming moon. It would mean The House on Mango Street and then the third one was dirty realism which is sometimes called Kmart realism. which would be Raymond carver? Joyce Carol oates oats it's kind of really low gritty White People When definition was that they are poor people who aspire spire to whiteness? But I think that once we recognized three classifications. We can start to right outside of them and it won't matter matter who the voices because we'll be less important that it fit into one of those three very narrow categories you write in the book to about how many books and stories there are about communities of women and girls but not so many about men. Are you consciously asleep or even subconsciously. Try to fill the void in that regard. I think I'm just sort of playing the game. You know when we were little we would make up games at the drop of a hat we would throw planks out and say okay. This is lava and this is safe. And you have to go from here to here and you can't touch this and you can only be here here for three seconds we will just arbitrarily. You know create The condition of our lives and and I love that and the idea is always as you know citing sociologist. Victor Turner to create these little experiments limbaugh experiments that we hope are so entertaining and serve people so well the people will adopt them and make them institutions like burning man. What do you enjoy about writing? The greatest part is when I when I surprised myself and sometimes that's not until the book is out and then I'll be on the road and realized what I actually was writing writing about and I will be mortified that I made something so deeply personal known to to God knows how many people and the idea the Tom always taught again thomspon. Bauer my best teacher. His method of teaching was was called dangerous. Writing and the idea is right about some aspect of of your psyche that you cannot resolve and you cannot be with you have to find a way to so completely explore it and exaggerate it that you exhaust all of your emotional reaction to it and typically. By the time you've written the book that thing disappears entirely because you are no longer emotionally psychologically reactive to it when you are best known for a certain book for Fight Club. Is that a blessing or a curse his at hard to get people to think about you as an author of anything other than that. How many Shirley Jackson novels can you name? Probably not many. You can name to. Oh and you can name one short story and I tell my my students if you can have one novel people know and one short story that people know. Then you're in the Pantheon. Chuck pollinate is a writer of many books has latest one is considered this moments in my writing life after which everything was different. It's out now. Chuck thanks for coming in. Thank you so much yourself up next. On the frame. The comedy group culture clash has breaking down boundaries. Again this time with a classic opera. mm-hmm how is this for an artistic recipe. Several Marvel superheroes Live Baroque music and three Chicano Hano Comex yes. The experimental Long Beach Opera is added again. The company invited the satirical comedy group culture clash to create a non traditional take aac on an operatic classic. It's King Arthur by the British composer Henry Purcell and the hybrid production finds parallels in today's immigration realities on the border her. The frame contributor mark had up has this report about the company's latest world premiere more than three hundred years ago the Baroque British composer Henry purcell missile made a name for himself writing music for the church.
