Moh news 1000 Have them 97 76 15 Right now It's the camo Morning news for your Wednesday, the 25th Day of November. Franklin's Is that the editor's desk adult Greg Herschel time Manda Factor. Former President Obama is criticizing the U. S response to the Corona virus pandemic so far on the late show with Stephen Colbert last night, Obama said that communication should have been more effective and leaders should have respected the science from the outset. He says. That means not suggesting that wearing masks to some sort of oppression and not calling the nation's leading epidemiologists and idiot doctors, they're telling the CDC they should warn people about the side effects of the cove it vaccine.

In an interview with NBC News last night, he said a top priority will be an immigration bill. He noted the legislation would create a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in the country. He says he also plans to cancel Donald Trump's executive orders weakening environmental protections as the transition moves forward. President Trump says his legal team will soon file a big lawsuit. Quote, which spells out in great detail, all of the ballot fraud and more ABC news correspondent Karen Travers joining us this morning from the White House. Karen, do we know any more about this? Well, you know, this is what we do know the president is cheesing this big lawsuit that he says will spell out in great detail, balance fraud and more. But he provided no details of what the lawsuit would focus on what state it would trophy son where it would be filed And when sources close to the president tell us that despite that tweet and other promises of big things to come, there is no current or pending litigation that they expect would change the results of this election. So remember the president's legal team. Still provided bureau evidence of widespread voter fraud. They've lost at least 30 cases in court, and some of these judges are really staving in their criticism as they're tossing out these cases, so I think we can expect in the coming weeks. The president is going to continue fighting. He's gonna do it until the absolute bitter end whenever that is, But the people around him are saying that a lot of this is just Teasing, and this is just trying to drum up some interest. But again, there is no litigation that they expect or nothing pending that they're working on that would change the election results. We saw quite a bit of the president elect yesterday as he introduced some of his Cabinet members. What's on his agenda today? He's gonna be delivering remarks at the White House of the fusing the transition team says.

He'll do that from Delaware, so from two across the eastern time, but otherwise the president elect is expected to have Quiet but modified Thanksgiving holiday. The Biden family is very large. You've got a lot of grandkids there a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles. But, he said this year is going to be a very small group that he's gathering with. We have not heard a lot from Donald Trump in the last couple of weeks, but yesterday there was a very short and rather unusual appearance in the in the briefing room. Yeah, This is really strange. We got very little heads up because I was about to happen. Very little minute heads up, But I started to see something's happening in the briefing room where aid come in and dust off the podium and start straightening out the flags a little bit, so we knew something was up. He came out just to talk about the stock market hitting that 30,000 mark yesterday, he said it was a big deal called it a sacred number, which you know, economists say they weren't quite sure what that meant. But again didn't take questions. We haven't gotten the chance after president questions since Election Day.

"Jerry you and I are a couple podcast tax but today we we have a real live breathing. Novelist in the studio with us in the North End Studio with us Michael's Dorian so good to have you back and daily Detroit. I'm so glad to be back then. I had a great time last time I was here the last time. Swizzle Lotta Fun yet We had during the Producing the audio engineering on that episode. So Jerry you're meeting Michael for the first time so for our listeners. Michael you are an established novelist from here in the Detroit area. You live in Ferndale. You are probably best known for your novel. The Leisure Seeker. Which is what we had you on because they had just come out with the film adaptation. That is correct. Yeah correct starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland. Yes and we'll talk a little bit about that later but you're back now because you've got a new book coming out it is called the narcissism of small differences It's out on. Is it a case you know? We've I've had these discussions before I tend to pronounce it in my midwestern. Twang into cash. And you don't know but I think they are more likely to say ACACIA. That sounds like a town in. Wisconsin publisher down in Wisconsin. Yes A- a Catholic books ACACIA books tomato tomato out of New York. Yeah Brooklyn comes out in? May this is your third novel right. Do I have that right? It's my fourth now fourth novel okay. This follows beautiful music correct and the leisure secret before that. And what was your first? The first book was Secondhand so About a kind of a thrift store owner of I don't know let's see what is the back cover say experiencing love and loss. Everyone in literary circles loves love and love and loss love and loss. It's a IT'S A. It's a real go to freeze for book jackets. So this fourth novel now This getting easy for you now. I was cake now telling Cheyenne to I. Keep waiting for to get easier and Thinking that okay you know. I always wind up thinking the next one's going to be. It's going to be easy to get that one published the rating. Isn't that bad? I mean I'm used to doing that and I'm getting better at that. It's the trying to get published. That's always the The the thing. This is my first novel that I've actually had the The same publisher as I did for beautiful music which lovely because all the other books including my story collection Las Tiki Palaces of Detroit. And they were all different. Publishers different editors and in fact I think different agents for all of them too so it gives you a sense of like okay. I thought you know if you're you're dumb enough to think that you got it made now and then the literary world loves to kind of CURB STOMP you and show you that. No No. Don't get cocky. Yeah because here's now this is going to happen so you come out with one novel. But you still ain't you know. I can't say the word family podcast. You're right I I I think I swore on the land. That's okay I won't do it again to bring out the explicit tag. Yeah I think you did. Actually yes all right. So the narcissism of small differences is the title This one is set in Ferndale. This one feels like very to me. I live in Ferndale as well. I'm a fellow Ferndale Ian. I mean about halfway through the book. I haven't finished it But I am enjoying it like a lot of the business. Names I notice are are made up fictional places that is true but like the main characters eat dinner at one point at Lewis Pizza in in his park. That is true and the setting of this novel is Two thousand nine and it's so the broader background. Is You know the city and kind of economic collapse during the great recession. The auto industry industry doing poorly headed into bankruptcy. Although you don't really get into that but I guess talk about why you wanted to set this here in Ferndale in Detroit and also during that time period will you know I had some of it was I still don't know if I'm supposed to go around telling all this but the fact is that I wrote the book about eleven years ago so this ties into that that idea of the literary world always Like a surprising. You and and giving you a kick. Where the sun don't shine and that. I'd written it and I was really pleased with it and it was taking place in two thousand nine and Then nobody wanted it and which probably is a horrible thing for writers. Say but sometimes a and it doesn't have when somebody doesn't want your novel it doesn't always mean that it's just reflective of like. It's a bad book sometimes. It's just a wrong time. Publishers are all into whatever vampires now or this or that or they don't want a quirky literary comic novel about You know a city just outside of Detroit so a bunch of time went by and I I wound up publishing beautiful music and I had written another book and I just wound up saying you know. Well Hey you can look at the new book but you can also if you WANNA have a have a look at this this book that I wrote a while back. That never found a home and they wound up going with with the the older book and I think I think I'm happy that it worked out that way because I think it works better as a period piece because the times were really bad. Two Thousand Nine Sheri. Everybody remembers that. Yeah and it wasn't just Detroit but it was really bad here and You know and so in Detroit. The whole whatever international conversation about Detroit. Try to change so much. So it's an interesting look at Detroit back then to just when there were a few little glimmers of hope in the distance when mostly everything was collapse and abandonment and despair. Yeah one of the things I really enjoy about your writing in general is that it's very relatable and that although you we've local things into places there are so many small suburbs outside of big cities across the nation. You give homages to home but also people in Cross your your writing can feel like they're part of it and that there is a part for them in that role they can see themselves and I think that's a beautiful thing that you do. Oh well we'll goodwill thanks I I mean it's strange too because I do write about Detroit. All my books have are either take place. Here are have a strong Detroit aspect to them including the leisure seeker which takes place along route. Sixty six but the the main characters from here yeah. They're lifelong detroiters in. So Detroit is just a big part of their hearts and their minds and so it's always present in that book you know so it was important. It's important mead right about where I'm from and I think that's when I really started to feel like my writing was coming together to I think with this book it was. I don't know I kind of wanted to you. Know I named Ferndale and I did Fictionalized a few places in there. We should ask if you recognize any on the bar that they hang out in is in. The book is called the Midland's yeah I was thinking like the emory. That's that's it really emory. Yes how why? Well No? Actually I do remember you you describing there that there was a lot of wood. Trim in writing may be re purposed. When is the story of the all the booths in the back bar and the emory were sourced from an old barn? In Ohio is there. I think their grandfather's farm who was emory. Wow an AK so good. Good call there. I'm letting out all my secrets. Now apparently yeah yeah. Yeah so News so one of the main characters in the book is about a unmarried couple. They're kind of Approaching the forties still young ish One of them's in an advertising copywriter. An art director an okay. An Art director works in the advertising industry Which is a world. You're familiar with you yourself. The other is kind of an Floundering spiring fiction writer so this begs the question. I'm sure you get this a lot novels but I mean are you writing about yourself here like you know how much of this is sort of nonfiction. I know both of those worlds. I know what it feels like to be a failed fiction writer. 'cause I spent many years being one and and I certainly I survived being Working in advertising I was a copywriter. It was interesting to tap into both of those worlds there and In the book they're kind of a couple where as they approach their forties. I think they're realizing that things haven't turned out quite the way they had either of them had expected. And they've all they've both made a lot of compromises along the way and continue to make them and I think that's a big part of what the book is about sort of the people we become. Because of the compromises we make. Can we all have to make compromises? But it's just a matter of how far you're willing to go and what You know and the people become because of those those choices you made those compromises you made. So that's a big part with the book is about. You're no longer a copyright array you. You have pretty much done with the advertising world that is correct. Yeah which is a brutal business. I know some people who work in advertising and man. That's a rough and tumble line of work. These days it is an especially these days too. I think it's I think it's just getting It's gotten tougher and tougher and I was really really lucky. I just got a special sort of situation that I could work. Part time at Campbell. Ewald and I did that for over two decades and it pretty much subsidized my Fiction writing career and back when you were actually working on this writing it. Two thousand nine. Were you able to maintain employment consistently you didn't know layoffs or anything. No no there were there were always layoffs but I managed to survive. I think partially because I did work part time and so I was a little less of a financial burden. I guess to the company's Yeah You've described this book as a comedy of manners. Can you elaborate a little bit on that? There are a few writers that I I. I really admire a lot. Evil in Whoa Dawn Powell used to write these very funny sort of witty books in the forties and fifties and I think even into the sixties and I kind of wanted to write one of those kinds of books where it's all these different. I mean it is in a lot of waste. Kind of an ensemble. Sorta book even though all the Action. Really Kinda takes place with the couple at the heart of the Book Joe On. I think that's one of those things..
