I you know. I've had a child and there are ongoing cushions about whether to do that again.

Who's gonna going gonna come to the party She's married says at least once maybe two or three times. That has five boys. Like i don't think she says five big boys but the intonation is like i've got five big boys. You're just thinking about that. Because i upload that video henry saying that he was a big boy allure. It's it's both that and it's the ways in which wolf is is having clarisa see. Oh this woman who i thought was who at the time felt very transgressive and stereotype. Breaking etc has has been domestic sized in the way that this whole time. I've been carrying her as like outside of that. So while that kisses is very important. And i think is part of if clarisa looked back on her at all the things that she like diversion points where she could have not become mrs dalloway. That's like one of them But she sees sally and tallies also a version of that here as well. There's the this is the. There's one scene with this woman named doris gilman To name i for somebody who kills men. I think it's supposed to be an angles in anglo. Could sized does good. You nailed it and anglicized anglican vic side is an anglicized version of a german name like keel mon- or something still sounds incredibly intense. Who came i don't i. I don't remember if it's explicit in the book when she came to europe or when her family came to came to england. Excuse me But there's some illusions to like anti german sentiment during what we're one in how the dow always gave her work as a teacher and stuff and she is lower class though than mrs dalloway and her daughter. Elizabeth has struck up. This really like powerful friendship with doris. Gilman and that is a hurts kill. I'm sorry why. That is a relationship that i definitely remember having an analog in the hours there's the like there's a there's an nyu professor or something.

"Not wanting to write the same story twice or the same type of book twice and wolf said in a letter about the curse of writing modernist novels i have to create the whole thing afresh for myself each time. Probably all writers now are in the same boat. It is the penalty. We pay for breaking with tradition and the solitude makes the writing more exciting though the being read less so one ought to sink to the bottom of the sea. Probably in live alone with one's words which is an auspicious or inauspicious. End to that quote But yeah the sense that you you can't just write a bunch of novels like this and have the be part of a series like wouldn't you couldn't just have a whole series of mrs dalloway novels that function this way which is interesting. I think mrs dalloway showed up and a number of short stories by wolf after this book was published but No this is not like you. Don't this isn't the seven th in a romance syria. This is not genre fiction all right. So i've told you about the opening of this book. Andrew and i'm glad that you did okay gonna do the plot as it were because i didn't know a win to bring this up but you'd like struggling to decide whether you think the plot. The book has applauded. Reminds me of this hub article. I found called the thirty six. Best one star amazon reviews of mrs dalloway. No and it's a lot of. It's this article is a joy to breed because there are a lot of people being critical of the book and not having a plot and then they're like one or two like virginia woolf reply guys who are popping up all these negative reviews to t- there's one guy named dvd easy. Yeah that's indeed who keeps popping up to tell people how wrong they are. And they don't like mrs dalloway but anyway my favorite of these referred to mrs dalloway as quote as bad as faulkner. Just being very wordy and verbose and all kinds of just like coming at you and be in sort of vague and shapeless and so so yeah when we talk about the plot of the book understand that that is not widely understood to be the point of the book or like why you read the book. No so let's talk about the plot. And i'm sure it won't take long is what i'm saying. Yeah clarence is going to buy some flowers for a high society party that she's thrown and she's going to explain it all the somebody and then a man comes in through her window. There is a a window feature in this book. I wonder if clarissa explains it all got her name from clarisa dalloway. That's interesting maybe four. It's not interesting because it's not true. We'll never know no one it up ever clears. The dow is buying flowers. She's walking down bond street in london and she's looking book went like bookshop windows. And jesus picking out some flowers she bumps into this guy named hugh whitbread..

"Mrs dalloway except for every time i've mentioned on this show like the other virginia woolf books i've heard of there's like they resonate out in someone who's a listener and is a fan of wolf should write in and tell me which one of those i'll read at some point but this book came from too short stories that she had worked on previously. And i think. I don't know if the for if mrs dalloway in bond street had been published. I think it had been published prior to this novel. Being written and the opening line is different so this book is famous for its first sentence Mrs dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself. That's getting of the day. Okay apparently in the short story. It was said she would gloves herself. I'm left sort of nonplussed. Guess what kind of questions do you have about the flat about the flowers. And the mrs and the herself guess you. I guess you pick up a lot. Well i don't even know if you pick up a lot about mrs dalloway from that. I guess i am left. Assuming that is having someone else by the flowers would be an option hung. She she i guess she has to help probably means yeah she's married and these flowers are significant enough to her or whatever she's doing in some ways she's chosen to do it herself instead of delegating. Yeah or else. She just has problems delegating in the first place. Also i get it see. We're learning a lot just with a few words if by learning you mean pool and stuff. Alvar butts then yes. I'm i'm learning all the time pulling stuff out of the text. This is what a close re we don't do close reads on the show where we just pick apart ten words at a time or so. That's kind of how we do. Our bonus don quixote thing. That's true one of our friends. When hearing that we are still reading don quixote said. Are you still reading don quixote. Yeah so that's you. You'd asked me to find interviews with wolf about this book. I didn't really find anything on on a quick search..

Townhall meeting last night out what he was talking about there. Here's that is not good. There's a little more. You got the vaccination campaign you see now it works or you know or the mom and dad or the neighbor or when you go to church or when you're not i really mean it. They're trusted interlocutors. Thank you the people if your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were there's a man on the moon or something. You know whether those aliens here or not. You know who were the people. They talked to beyond the kids. Love talking about it on your turntable house. Walea that was one of those moments that if he had had. During one of the debates trump would be president right now but they gave him a shot of something to make his mind worked better or he just got lucky that he didn't have one of those because of eat. Add one of those moments during the debate. Honestly i think trouble to one big fat shot in the ass and had a conversation. The other day which i was reminded that if second debate trump had showed up for the first debate instead of the you know super combative interrupting every word trump. He would have won. But you know back to the real problem. We got going on right. Here's our president is sold. His brain don't white. We're goodwill that used to right. There will be stories and they'll either start coming out while he's president or maybe they won't come out for twenty five years because those secrets are held that long but they're gonna be stories of people in meetings going. Whoa you know what's happening. Where yeah hallway conversations after meetings where they say geez. That was something wasn't it. They have to have a twenty fifth amendment committee that kinda just hangs around the sidelines and keeps an eye on things and how they're going to figure out when the completely incapacitated joe getty just invoked the twenty fifth amendment on joe biden. Oh absolutely. I stand by my comments. I think the guy is at the outer edges of Neurological competence not his fault. No absolutely not and for national security purposes. I'm fine with it being kept quiet until we have to deal with it. So maybe this is a good place to fit this in his anywhere. I just came across this Recently read mrs dalloway by virginia woolf. It's one of those books that they make you read in high school or college or something. I don't know if i did or not if i did it. Never made an impact on me at the time but at my current age it did newer. Time has a thing in their book review section where they asked people what are books. You should read before your forty book. She shouldn't read until after your forty which i'd never really considered before but it's clearly true clearly true that there are there are things that they make you read in college that they have no impact on you because you haven't had the life experience you haven't had kids you haven't grown old. You haven't haven't you just haven't had the life experience to get into them and then there are other books tried reading. Some jack kerouac at my current age. You know a few years ago and it just seems stupid to me. It's self-indulgent stupid and it was like really deep and meaningful to me. When i was like twenty nine hundred just just where you are in life i guess yeah sure coal anyway so this is from. Mrs dalloway gotta keep in mind that they're talking about people. Being in their fifties. This was written in one thousand nine hundred twenty five. I think max then being in your fifties was more like being in your seventies now so indirect is that i mean the whole sixty is the new forty s for real. My mom talks about all the time she said. When i was young somebody sixty was an old folks home. Wow that's just. You know common law combination of health attitudes. You know starting adulthood ma. You know you're married and had kids when you're twenty so just a lot of things were different. So excuse the age he is in this. Think more like seventy year old than a fifty-three-year-old. 'cause i often i often. I don't wanna sound cruel here. But i often see old people and i think what gets you out of bed in the morning and i. I wonder about that for myself. Like when i'm that age what's going to get me out of bed when i'm seventy five. What what do i enjoy. What do i look forward to. I mean d- spend all i. It doesn't seem like it being around my parents or other people. It doesn't seem like you spend all your time thinking. Everything sucks now. Everything that's happened before. And everything sucks in my life. Now people don't do that. But i can't quite understand why you know it's about the people you care about. I guess well this is. I came across this explanation. I think in. Mrs dalloway that i think explains it and and and i hope this is the direction new goes for me in. It must go for most people. I'll read this best. I can about one of the characters in the book. A terrible confession it was. He put on his hat again but now at the age of fifty three one scarcely needed people anymore opposite of what gioja said. People scarcely needed people anymore. Life itself every moment of it every drop of it here this instant now in the sun in regent's park was enough to much indeed. A whole lifetime was too short to bring it out. Now that wanted acquired the power the full flavor to extract every ounce of pleasure every shade of meaning which both were so much more solid than they used to be and so much less personal. Now i've read a watched a couple of long explanations of what that just that paragraph means and you know if you're older maybe you can Chime in on the text line whether or not this has been for you That you reach an age or it happens gradually over time. I suppose to where you start to notice the world around you more than you ever did with you. Taken out of the mix because when younger. It's all about us tour. And by younger i mean up until like age seventy but it's all about us. Everything is how it affects us. How is this good for me bad for me or whatever and what. He's explaining right there is. It's not personal anymore. It's just observing the world. I'm just floating around in the world. I'm no longer. It no longer matters to me because most of my life has been lived. And there's just so much richness to the world here once. I've extracted myself from it. Which is kind of the opposite of what you might think but once you take your own needs and personality in everything out of it and you just observe nhs and things and beasts and buildings and traffic and everything like that. That life becomes very rich and very interesting. I find that fascinating. I hope that that's the experience i have. That would explain to me How you can be quite old and still get a lot out of life. That's the first time i've ever seen explained that way anywhere in fiction or nonfiction interesting. Thought i used to regularly describe. This radio shows a trip to the human zoo right. Maybe just watching the human zoo or the regular zoo animals are just just watching the world be what it is without the the freaking filter that is self which is what dominates us through so.

"The armstrong and getty show apocalyptic and historic republican voting. bill includes some very radical restrictions. Like i dunno requiring driver's license or social security numbers for mail in voting. We're not talking about Photocopying id so we're just talking about voter identification for mail in ballots. Beefing up criminal penalties for election workers who break rules and we know dams. They don't like penalties. Especially when you burn things and adding an extra hour for early voting each day from eight hours which currently is to nine hours at minimum. Keep in mind. Texas already has seventeen seventeen days of early voting on election day. Good luck texas voters. How you gonna find fifteen minutes within seventeen days in at least nine hour window each day. Sheer suppression yeah. That's a decent rundown of the outlines. What the voting law is going to do. Jim crow on steroids. Yeah and just shocking. I get the political game E- claimed that suppression to go back to the way it wasn't twenty nine hundred knowing that most people don't pay attention and only get their news from you know the the half that is misleading. You not that both sides. Don't try to mislead you but so you'll hear that they're dirt. They're making it harder to vote. Yeah they're making it harder to vote than it was in two thousand nineteen. I'm sorry than twenty twenty because twenty twenty special year anyway. So this is what the president of the united states. Not just you know some lonsdale seve sadly or or or swallow well or something like that. This is the president of the united states this year along seventeen states have an active not just proposed but enacted twenty eight new laws to make it harder for vote not to mention get this nearly four hundred additional bills. Republican members of the state legislatures are trying to pass the twenty first century. Jim crow salt israel. It's unrelenting we're going to challenge vigorous through writing in bloomberg today said from the very same source that biden stating there where he said that seventeen states have passed twenty eight laws to make it harder to vote and a lot of those are just going back to the old rules. Some of them are new but a lot of just going back to the rules but that same source seventeen states have passed. Twenty eight laws to make it harder. Fourteen states have passed twenty eight laws to make it easier and four states appear on both lists so it's a lot more complicated then biden's you know twenty th century. Jim crow assault would lead you to believe sure absolutely you know thinking about. This is kind of a complex thought. But you can't throw around loosely references to the holocaust or you'll get in trouble for the jewish groups in particular and those who care about them will absolutely hammer you for minimizing the horrors of the holocaust like the woman that lost her job on the mandalorian. That was totally out of line. Fire in her over that but anyway Just as a for instance but the very people who claim to be just heart and soul for protecting black. America are brutally obscenely minimizing the jim crow era to score minor. Political points right. Now that's just unbel- got the hypocrisies just so thick. Let's go ahead as long as we Up to our ears and biden just trying to tear the country apart. Let's hear thirty. One elections is just such a threat literally shelby. Before we're facing the most significant test of our democracy since the civil war that's not hyperbole. Superficial. it takes serious balls. I mean like the size of a hippy hop to to say since the civil war. That's not hyperbole. Whoa whoa half a million dead americans. People starving to death in prisoner of war camps brother fighting brother. The country torn apart completely. But this is the biggest challenge since then. The texas is only allowing twenty days of early voting or whatever it is so this is a. That's so bad. It is so bad on so many levels. It's definitely bad. it's definitely bad. Joe biden never used to say stuff like the no he said dumb stuff but trump said lots of things. I wish he hadn't said and now biden saying things you wish had set so we're just like you know trying to instead of go down like one up each other and we're just gonna keep going that direction. That's that's not good. That's not going to help anybody now. Apropos of nothing. They did you feature in the new york times when they talk to an author every week in their book section where they say. What books should everyone read before. They're forty what should nobody. What what books should nobody read. Until they're over forty. And i thought that was kind of interesting breaking it down by age like that. What's the idea. What's the premise there. Well i i've just come to completely understand it recently. I read mrs dalloway by virginia woolf or e familiar with that book have you read it. Just vaguely nine may have read it in high school or college. I don't know it's you know what's on your top ten list of greatest novels of all time all the time. That book But i read it. As a guy in his fifties it's about characters in their fifties and it was so like relatable and powerful. And i thought if i had read this as a high school student meant freaking nothing to me nuts. Mystifying you memorize some stuff for the test. But it wouldn't have anything to me. And so i'm rereading the great gaps. Great gatsby with the same sort of belief. I read it years ago. It's often at the top of the list. The best books of all time. I read it and i think it's because i was twenty something at the time and i'm gonna reread it as an older person. See if it has a different effect on me like a lot of parties in a bad mood. I don't get it. Yeah yeah yeah. A bunch of fifty year olds talking about life from the choices they made. If you're twenty five and you have to read it or you're you're twenty one after college. What the hell does that mean to you. Nothing but if you're reading about it when you are on your fifties and thinking about the choices you made in your life in the time you've got leads can be a pretty powerful book. So i thought that's interesting revisit. Some books you read when you're younger now that you're older and they might have a completely different impact on you so tell me more about this. Mrs dalloway she hotter when she was still trying to remain young one day in june of nineteen. Twenty five to one of those books where it's just one day of planning a party which sounds dole on. Its face but you know. Virginia woolf killed herself she was sued a suicidal suicidal her whole life but she killed herself she put a whole bunch of rocks in her jacket pocket and walked out the middle of a stream and sank.

Going into. and. So he said I said I didn't know what options I have I have by the business from you. We've been supplying them full these as we know the numbers and so we by the he ended up becoming an. Bet Business So From, that mile hand ethnic alliances. It's specializes or me automation marketing automation by phone bills. Business Strategy Building Mobile APPS. In Between just before Kobe hit read into a Seven business in a very short span of time because we knew exactly what we wanted to chase and we did that using the things we teaching does authorities. So that's a little bit of history. Around sixteen years of history how many moons ago eight minutes? Tape. Fascinating journey and. I think there's a one thing that stands out for me as a bit of a pet of growing businesses and you talked about your Ebay store initially that now runs itself and your mom's Kinda. Being an eye on it so So I'm guessing you kind of develop the system that. Everything was systemized and you had prices in place and and probably lots of automation. How how did you added? You SORTA go about setting that up to stop listening replicating it. Show. So if we wanted to talk about back. then. I realized that if I had to keep asking the same things everyday and with Ebay, it's you're providing people asking you questions all the time you shipping it out you letting them know where it is. Now it's not like we have amazing tracking these days until two, thousand, four subject he just dropped it off at the post office you should have it in five days and then after five days. Hey, did you get if you did please leave us a feedback this all menu. Everything's automatically. So basically I've made all the templates and so anytime somebody ordered. You know this is the email that they will get, cut and paste cut and paste. Literally in one or two the work was done for the whole day and it was just incredible. So that sort of that system izing brain that's that's lab me to accelerate system is always businesses and that's once a business assist amazing in grow really quickly and as long as it has right. Foundation. and. Businesses. All right now, you say your your plan is on impacting one billion lives. So what what? Tell us about that vision and what what are you some of the things you're doing because I'm guessing that all as businesses. Feed into that offer show so with. With business authorities in its first share, re impacted the lives of one, million, eight, thousand people and we track that using. Be One J. votes if anybody does no be as he wanted to his created by Masami, Sato end hold on. It is a platform which allows its full transparency. So any money you can choose which calls you want to donate to and one hundred percent of the money goes to those people. It's not like some other charities Adler phases since we pay the fees. So for example, if anyone comes to any events every time we have a course so. Macho is the bush fires, etc.. Came, all the money was donated back to the bushfire appeal at its fully tracked would count as one impact in November in we. Go to the Korean families were cold. Provided, shelter for the. Clothing so every to painter event that money would. Give those people's clothing shelter for the entire winter. So that's one impacts. Now, in one year is a small tiny little business like else can generate one million, eighty thousand impacts in the low. One billion people should not that far off if we all bent. and. So from by using technology by leveraging technology, we can actually have a greater influence on that. So you dealing sample when Cogan hits.

"Eight six six seven three three six seven eight six that number again for those of you in the listening audience is eight six six seven three six seven eight six and you can also get in touch on Twitter and Facebook were at forum or Email, any questions, you might have to forum at kqeDorg, but those of you in the audience quickly need to raise your hand, and we will indeed find you and make every effort to do that with speed in the meantime, when. The one ask you, first of all, the book is still going, and how much is it influencing you in terms of your own writing? Oh, I, I think all fiction writers, inevitably writing, and reading, or parallel processes for us. And so, anytime you pick up another novels and read them closely. You can't help but, but influence, how you think of what the possibilities are of narrative, you learned from that experience. There's, you know, jealousy or competition dynamics read something like, oh, I think I could do that. And so it, it, it's Burs you know, when you read postal. Sure absolutely. Certainly. I don't I just don't think myself as as an equal, but they they raise your own your raise your game and a good way. Well, your game is pretty versatile app. The rules of civility, for example, concerns, essentially a working class woman, and then you have this aristocrat the count and the gentleman from Moscow. I mean and two worlds. It couldn't be farther apart. Yeah. I think I think that I was raised in the tradition that the. Assumption that narrative their job was to take on different personalities to explore them to bring them to life as many as varied personalities and individuals as possible, and whether it's male or female, Richard poor black or white with that. That was the job of the narrative. And I think that if you go back and look at Shakespeare, certainly that's the mission of Shakespeare is to bring all the aspects of humanity to life in a way, which is fair compelling equal so that the interaction of a very individuals. Give us an opportunity to get glimpse of the human condition. I guess which may I say you do with excellent skill and with compelling, they aren't is, however, when you said black, and white, there's always touchy area weight off. There's be creating black characters, especially remember, William Styron wrote a book called the confessions. There was a huge brouhaha by it because he was actually taking on the narrative voice of a black man. Yes. I understand the sensitivity around that debate, and there are very valid feelings of why people of color writers of color may feel like or readers color, feel like that's territory that you should not step into, but I guess I don't fully accept the reasoning behind that. I understand the, the feelings about it, and they're us and I completely happy with them saying, I don't wanna read your writing. If you're going to do that. But there's there's for me. Actually speaking. No difference between that position. And, and a man, right? A woman woman right? A man can vote said about Madam Bovery? Well, same why right ovary sent long? And I think that it's important if you think of Virginia Woolf, probably one of her two most important books as MRs dalloway, and that book is told from the perspective of MRs dalloway, these, the aging of society, but also a young man who returned from the first World War in his on the verge of suicide and the book goes back and forth from those perspectives. And if we think of Faulkner. Adam sorry. Absolutely dying certainly one of his two or three most important books, and it's similar we go back and forth or in that case, there's multiple male and female characters that we are following by closely and hearing their voices. And I think that whether your wealth, or whether you're Faulkner, that, that the, the exploration of different people of different classes, colors races is an important part of what Foster's the empathy of the writer and the expiration of the writer, but and then can then serve the interests of broader empathy. Among readers to we were talking with more toes, novelist. Again, most recent book is a gentleman in Moscow, and let's go to Colorado. Mitchell joins us Mitchell, you're on. I'm sorry. Susan in Alameda. Okay. It says Mitchell here but you're Susan we've already changed genders again. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead. So I have to say, I love you writing, and, but I did have some issues with gentlemen in Moscow. It's like there was like this pro aristocracy nostalgia, and not enough exploration of, you know, the deep suffering of the Russian people at the time. Seven just kind of wondering how do you plead plead guilty? But obviously every book. You're taking on to some degree the personality of the individual. And looking at the world through there, there is just as I was describing, if you seconds ago. And so, yes, this is the, the, the era of the Soviet era, is being looked at through the eyes of someone who is in essence, a nineteenth century figure raise nineteenth century values was nineteenth century concerns, and he's doing it from inside a luxury hotel. It is not meant to be the Gulag Archipelago huge fan of he needs have great respect for him as individual the life. He led the, the writings that he has given us. I did not set out to write in any way a prisoner of the type that he writes. And so you have to each book you have to bring your own rules for the game now that are, that are that make sense within the context of the book and the book, absolutely is draws into it over the course of the narrative in very specific ways, the, the damage of just happening to the Russian people over the course of. Of the Soviet air. It's not it's not a book. It's certainly not an apologist book for the Soviet crimes, nor is it ignorant of it. But, but it is bringing it through the cracks in the narrative as people occasionally to follow them outside the buildings that you learn to what has befallen them. And so you're trying to part of the book is trying to balance those two things. What is the world of the count most personally and directly and what is unfolding in Russian society? And, and I think the balanced works with, well, if you don't then I can't convince you that otherwise, but, but I the book is I hear a lot from members of readers in eastern Europe, whether they're emigres, or they're still eastern Europe. The book has been translated throughout eastern Europe. And for the most part, the feedbacks been very positive in trying, and that the book shows in their view, a more balanced picture of Russian life, than what American narratives have shown of Russian life, for the most part where. It was all black and white. The Russia was terrible place. Terrible people and everyone is your prisoner trying to get out. And that's that's a that's a disservice to the lives of most Russians who continue throughout the Soviet era to fall in. Love to have children to celebrate holidays to love music to love reading and writing. And so the book is, is, is looking at somebody that balance between the difficulty is that the Russians face during the Soviet era, but also the richness of their lives as persistent and all that was going on even while Stalin was in charge. No question. I'm also struck by the fact that there's an old cliche that now, those are like were shocks. And people will read them and see off in what they wanna see you have had extraordinarily claim for your work. And the fact is everybody has their critics. I'm gonna go to the audience here. We have a question for man in the audience and join us. Hi, first of all, it's delight to have you here. Wonderful surprise. Thank you. I like you. I've been in a book club for more than twenty five years now and I just wanted to let you know that John Almon in Moscow, set a new standard for book club. It was one of the top three best discussions, we've had in those twenty five years. And that's great. Thank you. Just facilitated on an amazing amount of discussion because of the relationships because of the transformation of the characters that diversity and also just what we gained about that time period, the knowledge the history. So I just wanted to say thank you very much. You're welcome. Thank you for those comments. Excellent question. Thank you, my. It's my favorite kind. We'll be got another caller who may have a question may either way. Hannah you're on with us. Welcome. Hi, thank you for having me going, you I very much in doing now and Mike Christian is about character development, and what is your perspective of creating great deep character? And I asked this question, because I love reading level and I love how character than identify with them and feel like you're in their skin can really transport you into that book in feel like you're in about two. So my question is, how do you develop a great character? This goes back to what we were talking about a few seconds ago. Missio excuse me. I think that first of all, thank you. I think that the task of trying to create compelling characters in fiction, particularly the, you know, the central characters or or who. Who are going to have a much bigger impact? But all the characters it the, the goal of achieving the hat really comes from practice. And as I kind of implied earlier, my youth was spent writing stories from all different kinds of perspectives. Because when you set out to write five different stories, one is by old Viennese violin dealer, who's Jewish in, in Europe in nineteen twenties, or, and then it's a young woman in Berkeley in the sixties young black.

I've always known that you're a pretty open minded person. But now, it makes even more sense. What do you mean? And what does this have to do with a moment of science? Well, two thousand thirteen study at the university of Toronto show that reading literature is excellent mental conditioning for becoming more open minded interesting. What gives literature this special power? Excellent question. It turns out that reading fictional stories. Prompts a middle response to seek from what happens when we read nonfiction texts like newspapers and essays literature releases us from the pressures of real world decision making and thus enter the mindset of characters are often very different from ourselves makes sense.
