"The lay i think in particular amazing in her fables are very good too but she didn't leave behind much trays in the historical record. So they say that she could have been an abyss of perhaps barking. They say that she could have been illinois. Rebecca tens daughter from her first marriage to the sets Bay say that she could have been a bastard daughter of some nobility or royalty she had to have been noble at least because she was literate and that was a time in which women were just not taught to read and write unless they are expected to take over the management of greets estates. So yes we don't know much about her. We do know that she was literate in multiple languages until the work. The work is something of course that that exists. So tell us something about you. Mentioned the lays the purchase that she writes retailing's of sops fables and our own fables as. Well tell us something about the work. Oh my goodness so. I fell in love with a lay back in University i for a while. I thought he wanted to be a medieval so steadied on phone. And i just love me. And i love her there. Such weird stories the basically short stories in poetry and they draw on very incheon stories from brittany and normandy. I believe and they a lot of them are three and some of them are They talk about courtly love. And they're weird right like there are a lot of magical things that happen in them. April while actually was trying to do a new translation. Honest like maria. I'm devan ahead. Leads new beowulf where you take the old tax and he sort of electrify it with a contemporary world. And it didn't work out so instead at a novel you mentioned. Eleanor evacuation is a character in the novel. Of course this is in the main and novel about an abbey about nuns about cloistered existence. So consequently we actually get that much. Political historical context about this time is eleven twelve th century which is a time that relatively unknown to us to contemporary is so despite the fact that you you talk about the book i'm going to ask you to the set into the context of where we are in time if he come. Oh absolutely so. I did try to do the contemporary time of meritas world kind of gently but it does come in and out in sort of a half line and sort of the larger pressures there so of course at the time. This was a generation past the norman. Conquest and eleanor backwards. Then she was. I the queen of france early in her life. She was born at eleven twenty two and then she got that annulled and she crossed and cheek married henry. The second who was empress matilda's air and he became king of england right. So this is the time of the crusades and eleanor and Both of our husbands actually were involved in the second crusade which is between eleven forty seven eleven fifty and the pressures at the time. Were kind of extraordinary right. Like pressures of catholic europe pushing down into the holy land to try to gain jerusalem. The jerusalem is lost multiple times. And then they tried to conquer it again. This set the basically the prototype for the next thousand years of imperialism from european sources into the rest of the world and that was something that i wanted to look at a little bit. More deeply to dec- these deeper mri. The way that perhaps we can trace the way that the world is now back through time and into this this moment that i think most contemporary people don't know a great deal about while thing. This contemporary person didn't know anything about a toll. Marie you'll marie. Who will talk about in a moment have family. She has all of these warrior on and they have taken paul and indeed..

"This is little atoms. A radio show about ideas and coach with me nailed any this week. Lauren growth returns a little ad. Talk about latest novel. Matrix is a new york times. Bestselling author three levels the monsters of templeton acadia and faints bureaus and the celebrated short story collections delicate edible birds and florida which we talked on their labs. A couple of years ago has been featured in the new yorker harpers the atlantic and simple best american short story anthologies. And today we're going to be talking about loans. Latest novel matrix lauren. Welcome back little atoms. Thank you so much for having menia first of all. Tell us how you would describe this novel. I just kind of this novel. As a contemporary retelling of the life of the phones who has the first female poet in french who became an abyss. But we don't actually know much about her so it's all imagined she becomes a mistake in my book and this book deals with ideas of female power and autonomy and a little bit of climate change and all sorts of other things the purpose of religion in the life of a person who is resistant to it. Well hey when you describe it. In those times i was gonna say this is ostensibly on the surface that departure for you compared to your previous word but actually there are many contemporary residences in the story. Oh absolutely actually meant for this book to be sort of the past and the present speaking to each other over the abyss. There's this incredible. Elliott smith quotes. That i was thinking about as i was writing. That goes a work of art in unfixed time. The shaft opens the past and present exist in the same moment and we know as being that. We are connected in that sort of the idea that i was trying to go with. I also played around with some of the historical fiction written by say penelope fitzgerald. Who does this sort of extraordinarily lights vision of the past written with a great deal of sort of contemporary wit's end ideas that have slithering in and out so that was my model for this book. What i was going to ask you about right at the edge. But let's do it now. Then so well support for joe terms of writing hysterical historical fiction.

You've written where you're like looking back on like a car wreck you're in like a traffic accident or just kind of like what happened like things were flying all all over the place like i went through the windshield and i think that's a really good way to think about like writing a novel. I just look it. i'm just kind of like. How did i do that. Like i'm actually like really impressed with myself. So yeah it was. It was different like yeah. I think writing a novel.

Looks like with the second person dot creates kind of like a convenience distance. Like you're sort of watching yourself from afar you're disoriented so that sort of was a suitable way of like how you might feel when you suddenly like arrived in this in your home country where you haven't been for twenty years and then you know she's the person who season really sure who she is like she sorted feels very uncertain. She houses identity of like. Yes i'm the new volunteer. An yeah so. I think kinda writing outweigh of like referring. Turn those different ways. It was just a decision that just makes sense to me. I just i sort of just trusted my gut. Trust my instinct and using. It turned something about mattias. Well then yeah. And so he is. You know sort of a simple way. Describe human lena's like childhood friend. But i mean calling him like her brother would also be accurate because they they lived together. They grew up together. They were very close. And you know the kind of like revelation of the back story of sort of like how that dynamic came about about how he came to live with. Her family is kind of a key moment in the book. So so we're not going to give that up now. You'll have to read a tantalizing revelation. But yeah and i mean i think it's interesting because sometimes i feel like when people read the book like people think lena's the character who sort of the stand for me. I can understand that because you know like me like she studied literature though. Technically you know. I studied creative writing. But you also we will have an academic background. You know we're both like the same gender but like really like mattias. The character who. I feel like he resembles me more because i think sort of his struggles of just kind of like his his kinda like desire for like privacy in sort of like also the way he he really wants to help people right unlike. That's an instinct. I recognize myself to just sort of like. Oh yeah like..

Nowadays 'em i want people. I will the sooner than two years as it happened in how to lose a country to realize that this is the new politics. The new politics will be about emotions because as we know. We know all these authoritarian leaders right lingers instill on how being doing a lot of politics of emotions that they were playing on emotion so i think progressive politics should be also consider should also consider the thing and talk about emotions as well. We shouldn't be. We shouldn't be Sh we should shy weighing ferment. I wanted to write him those words. We generally shy away from as people like love pave.

"On some of those launches take place actually from the very same part the went from i saw one of the end of two thousand nine hundred nine it was a sunset launch was absolutely incredible to watch it with very thrilling. Very dramatic. Actually so listen up. The whole sky the funder of extraordinary noise as well citing very very dramatic. It's in the middle of nowhere. If i can so say that without giving offense to anybody i mean. It's actually in the kazakhstan step. It's a come. Send me our desert in western portion of kazakhstan. It is incredibly difficult to actually get to. When i went there in two hundred nineteen from london it took about twenty eight hours and three of flights and five bus journey. Actually get that still pretty not exactly secrets. Very close place for difficult could access to go to. It's actually a little piece of russia that still sits as it were come least to the russians inside the independent now. Republicans cousins tom. So what you got as a remote place. That's the key. And at the time and was built constructed i think starting in nineteen fifty. Five eight was. It was a four remote on. We're talking about a place. The was essentially size of kentucky. I in fact it's it's it's about a hundred times bigger than had canaveral in the united states. I mean not gives you some idea of what we're dealing. It's absolutely enormous. They will probably would definitely kazakh not months that lived there for centuries and just move with at tents and the cattle across the camels across the step. All of them were moved out. This place was empty. Other human beings and the reason it was built that was precisely in order to test that missiles talking about iran. The are seven one that was used as an intercontinental ballistic missile. The one that had the chip weapon on top of it but also became an amended form the rocket that your garden would go into space in nineteen sixty one so this top secret. The kudos cosmodrome it starts. Missile base is built in this new vast. Empty land sort of in the middle of nowhere and one of the reasons they put it that aids because it has very clear skies about three hundred fifty days out of three hundred sixty five days a clear but the climate is horrible. In the summer it gets to fifty degrees and in the winter it gets to minus forty degrees in wins. Kinda hal off.

"In secret. There was a younger in the american team. The knot test pilots. They went looking for test pilots on the soviet side. They were looking for people who could fly in an automated council and essentially endure this mission. So what they chose was serving fighter. Pilots people who knew about injection which they're going to need to from that capsule because of the technology time they will have to check from it before it actually not on earth again and they were looking for people who essentially use to a good deal with risk and they were looking for people who good at obeying orders. So you've got a young team and small team. Incredible that the gardens about five foot four inches in sort of all money and the re an all of them were very small and the reason why it was small was because essentially what was happening was the the thermonuclear weapon. That would normally sit on talk of a missile over. The uh seven which i said it was the biggest intercontinental missiles in the world at the time could find quarter the way across the world and essentially destroy. Most of new york had the force of about two hundred russian bombs would dmz removing effectively the removing the thermonuclear weapon and what housed it and replacing it with a sphere inside of which would sit or lie a human being and that human being had to be quite small and so you're a garin was basically replacing a nuclear weapon. He was five foot four inches. Almost old what she got smaller yoga obedient find pilots training in total secrecy against older thirty. Something well test pilots and very very very famous in the mercury seven and these are the two sets. Gladiators one who know about the other.

These are all good things. These are not things that we should be defensive about and yet at the same time we know that beyond our little in clave of writers and i suppose other artists as well there is a whole world of people who do not think the way we think about these things and who were full of condemnation about the idea that i have quote unquote stolen my novel from a conversation that i had with you five years ago.

"Had this great job. i love it. I'm so lucky that. How do you keep it fun in fresh and so that's why we're going about it. You know and dream girl in particular. I like her. i don't read it enough in. i have not read it widely. I do watch a lot of horror films. And i watched them by myself for the most part because the other people in my household do not let her so. It's interesting watch harm. I went south and with jim girl in particular. I had just missed the end of two thousand eighteen in. I just finished watching a quiet place. And i was thinking not for the first time about helmets. Har- loves to deal with the idea of isolation it's usually very literal is apply solution. People are out in the country telecommunications or down they can't get to anyone no one knows where they are. They're off the grid. But i had this hunch that you could achieve the same thing in a congested urban senate and i always wanted to try it and after watching a quiet place in thinking about. I was like yeah. I'm ready to write a novel. Where someone's inner city can see people all the telecommunications work yet this person is still some very trapped in isolated i had a hunch can is at the end of two thousand eighteen. That people were more isolated than they really knew that. We had a lot of buzz in clutter. That made her lives seem busy full. That stuff could easily follow away in find out how many true friends we actually had when push came to shop and then of course what you couldn't have noticed lockdowns. We're going to start happening. I am not rushing On the opposite. I mean i would look back through history in so you can make money betting against my instincts on almost anything. Let's talk about your protagonist. Gerry anderson that you raised the specter of philip. Roth jerry under said is clearly. Wanna be late middle aged. Why big beasts of american literature right. Yeah tell us something about him. Well okay so it's important to remember that. Jerry is not of ross generation that he thinks he should be jerry. Anderson is sixty something novelist One really big success in other successes but one book in particular has allowed him to live. The life of the mind live very well. He identifies with raw bellow updike that generation. He feels like he has that level of gravitas. He is someone who secretly keeps waiting for the phone to rain in the middle of the night to be told that he's won the nobel prize. Mean he really does have that level of confidence made even arrogance about his work in some things. Jerry is a very interesting actual alter ego for me because we he's horrible is terrible. Cnn did that out of the way right up front. But i agree with a lot of things about writing in creation. I like the fact. That jerry doesn't better is research does just enough. I like that. He belongs to what call team imagination where he thinks you should just get to make stuff up and his somewhat tired of questions about the are biographical aspects of his work. I had a lot of different writers on my mind when i was creating jerry but woman in my office note. Limping comical insanely space to me. I'm also not entirely. There's a lot of mehan. Jerry i just think i'm i think i'm her social being tapped. I'm so when you actually run out the pandemic pretty well because they did have friendships. That i could pursue the attacks in dm in facebook pages. I never felt lonely. Not really because he's a stay at home writer. I put years in making sure that. I had these communities to keep me company when i was home alone writing. Show yet jerry. Juries a snob. His hair much snob but he is wolraad. He is smart is good at what he does in Comes to women. He's an absolute hig. He doesn't have a clue. You really doesn't feel like jerry were sitting next to me. He gas mcgauchie. Say that about me. Because jerry is that most person of awe in that's the person who is very vested in believing that they're good which i think is one of the most dangerous concepts that anybody can have about themselves. You mentioned the idea of novelist. Spain you always asked about autobiographical elements in that were jerry's. His first book was based on his. Rather unpleasant. Oprah again yeah. He's had trouble times in his past and he loosely based on that and so of course. This is something everybody asked him. But he's got this book we really don't give much away about what happens in the story. Because people need to experiments out for themselves but dream girl is also the title of the book that may jerry a massive success and so one of the themes in the book is in this book. Go his book. Go is is is the idea of taking someone else's story to use novelist using other people's stories as thoughtful work and this smitten. I it's viewed the great chris power a few weeks ago about his brilliant book. A lovely man which has a similar theme and privately luckily just for this you now lower just a couple of weeks ago with the news the other thorough around the cat person story again about you. Know the fact that ted's out that spot possibly have been based on aspects of somebody's real lives at so. Let's talk about you use of this team in the book about the idea of taking somebody else's life as material your novel. This is something i really struggle with. Lady in the late was full up. Letta meditation on whether i can defend what i do when i take a real crime story and turn it into a novel and i'm not sure it's defensible. But i'm also not sure is indefensible. Ellison caesar beside the point. I understand what people value their own stories in believe that their stories belong to them on one of the reasons that that's a legitimate way to feel is because there are times when the motion picture business comes calling in will pay people for the rights to their real life story. You know michael lewis the writer american writer who written so many amazing books you know. He's made a lot of people. Famous in those people got to sell their stories. Make money too. So yeah. Your story has value. Maybe has to be pretty extraordinary. Value in the next part is but are you harmed by someone else deciding to tell your story again survived while yes it now. I think i have damaged in friendships because people have read my books instead what she stole my life and i don't think i've done that with a friend except like little teeny tiny stories. That are kind of funny like a story about a friend who on a road trip bought some desired snack at a roadside gas station. When it turned out not to be the delicious thing that she wanted she and her sister tried to flush out mujtaba toilet with disastrous results. Like y'all still stuff. Like i'm a little mad i i'll grab stuff like that but it is a really difficult argument because then we also have to get into. Okay well. i think that.

I've been a much more up near new exciting new subjects like chemistry folks elizabeth behind realize it needs to catch up so got the local baker to improve their labs. But you can tell any Oxford cambridge jet. You might not he. He went did that him in. This professor went the festival but board working oxford because it was it was a boring.

People didn't walk but you could see how at the time idea at they developed it of new processes for a machines the people to collect different gases and inhale which is where the nitric oxide stuff comes up at saturday. Doses ballooning helped helped chemistry labs. The oxford university is bike. And he's not really. He occasionally talks in history stories.

"My memory call his story of caring aging and everyday acts of love. And it was a book that i really thought about hard about whether i wanted to write. I'm not a confessional writer. But i've seen on and off for the past twelve years a carer. I'm also so. Obviously i can be around my job. But lots of people can't do not give up their jobs to be a kyra but at the same time. It's a story that i felt was important to tell. There is a lot about me as a writer in the book. Resolute about me as rita in the book Because if you are often you don't really sleep through the night. You always got one open. And so i do a huge amount of retake in the small hours as it were but i really wanted to write this book which is a tribute to three extraordinary. People might my father and my mother both of whom now gone and my wonderful mother in law granny rosy for whom under fulltime kara up because actually there are thirty million of us unpaid carers in the uk. We all hidden everywhere in plain sight. And i very much wanted to tell my story. I'm only speaking for myself but also to try and help make carrying more visible. It's kara's week as we record this and they strap line. This year is making carry visible and valued because many many parents don't feel that they have any support. There are many people carrying on their own. They don't have the resources to be able to carry on working. And all of these things. So i wanted to raise my voice along with the other thirty million cares and say. Please stop paying attention to this. Social care needs to be sorted out and it was very different so of book for me to write. Obviously because mostly i've making stuff up in my fiction you know. City of tears came out in january. And i can't really believe an extra pair of hands has just come out. That's his second book in lockdown. And that's a missing meeting readers but the reaction to an extra pair of hands has been extraordinary and it's been a wonderful thing do to realize for many many carriers who are in the same position as me. How important books are and how important reading can be when you can't really get out as much and you're very much confined to a smaller space or looking to somebody and you can't really leave them books at the thing that gave many of us who are carrying the glimpse on the outside world so the next five has being you know it was something i wrote during lockdown and i'm really enjoying talking to people about at the moment you in doing women's prize and we have the women's prize shortlist but chill digital festival next week obviously discoveries. Today's i'm just juggling all these things. So i'll be talking to kate moss. We've been talking about. The women's prize trusts discoveries program. The winner of which emma van star was announced.

"Yeah elicits a little items. I'm nail denny today. I'm talking to jerry jones and we're talking about her debut novel. How the one system sweeps her house sherry said. I wanted to talk about some of the characters and a little bit more detail. So we'll start with paula. As you said we find her in this violent destructive relationship with a man the one my imagine she could leave but we also see a why family and a mother as may who is present in. This story is dead at the start of the story Grandmother wilmer. I don't want to give to sway. Say what he's but they said absolutely wild character carson who is terrifying grandmother. Woolmer's husband. Tell us something about about. Laura's background some of these people are his diet aid and one of the key things for her in. The novel is the core concept of low and for la last year. We love with the singing of her me. The way the who sang it and started coming up with a thought. That's one of the earliest expressions of love that anybody will a will feel or experience that sort of love from mother depend name or by son or whatever so lila's character is very much in search about love and i think nothing's way she gets into some of the issues that she does because she's living with her grandmother after her mother's death and her grandmother's husband and she goes through some really traumatic experiences at the hands of her grandmother and her husband and i think that she la la to certain extent because it's clear to her or she feels that she's not getting that level of love and affection at home and therefore i think that's part of the reason why she goes searching for it in eden. Her husband who just happens to take the time and the effort to sing her name in just the way her mother did. So i think la la like most people in the world is looking for love. Unfortunately she's also running away from a situation. And i think as with anybody who's running away from something. I think we focus a lot on what we're running a week from not necessarily what we're running into and therefore that need of the problems that she has to to grapple with in the novel so yes she ends up married to aden They have a dog. And i think think the birth of her daughter is the catalyst for change in lalas life and i think that happens in the novel just as it does in real life for women in similar circumstances so the birth of this of this doctor this this much beloved..

"I'm realized that she was a hair. Braider and i remember here. Breeders being a feature of the local beach scape on the beach of life very early ernie adolescents. I would see so in nineteen eighty four. I would have been ten going on eleven not to eat each myself. But that's the truth. So i would have been ten eleven and i was just sort of coming into an awareness of self and who i was and i just remember the eighties. With such fondness. So i it was the fact that i remember going to the beach around that time and that the here breeders were very much a part of the local escape so that was the first reason but quite apart from that i mean i just love the lake. The decade of the eighteenth just meant so much to me and there were so many elements of my child. Turn my adolescence. Being a teenager that are associated with things from the eighties that were no longer here and that it was just such a pleasure to be able to recreate at sort of lifts through again. So i mean things like the huns addresses and Going to the cinema the globe cinemas sitting in the balcony of throwing popcorn into the pit on string bags string bags were like everywhere in the. Atc don't see them now at all. That's a thing for me on so many elements of the nineteen eighties. Even even in terms of the breeding baheren putting beat sappy and that was really that was the stylish. Speak to do with your hair and a lot of local here. Breeders would have been breeding on the beach taurus in nineteen eighty-four. So it was. It was absolutely a pleasure for me to be able to revisit bapti. I wanna talk about a number of the characters. This book has a large cast of characters. And you've just mentioned that. The book started off when i came here. You ambitious guesses. Show story lorries. I'd say the bane character of the story. The story is told from the perspective of multiple characters. And so i wanted to talk about festival. I guess why multiple characters but to do that. Let's talk about i. Guess how those how those characters came together. How the book came together over those moves for characters and think in barbados impart my my culture as a beach and has a carribean person. Orel storytelling is very much apartment. That's just how we live how we express ourselves even on and they're very to me. It's very interesting how we do that. And i think you probably only. I certainly probably only recognize certain aspects of that when i went somewhere else. Lives for one and felt the absence of it so locally. When we're telling a story you know. We kind of have a tendency to meander a bit. So i would say okay. Let me tell you of judy. From down the road. Donald junie jomie one. That married a tall on. You'll know talk about tom..
