Interview With Author David Yoon

"This week. I'm thrilled to have david yunan. Whose newest book super fake love song is out now. An conversation that we pretty much covered all talk about his newest book a his debut his writing journey and a lot about what he was like as a young person so really enjoyed talking to david. Hope you enjoy listening listening so david. What book hooked you. What book hooked me It's it was when i was in middle school. I don't know exactly how old i was. But i remember talking to my librarian and i was like i don't know to read their so many books in the school library and she just pulled out the halloween tree by ray bradbury and If you read this book but it's it has these awesome woodcut Drawings in it and it came up a long time ago. Like in the sixties. I want to say and this is way before like killington and the newspaper from the nightmare before christmas. But it's kind of there's a character in it. That is the skeleton dude with. I think he has a pumpkin for a head. I know he doesn't but he's like this very skeleton like figure and he's very creepy and he's very Theatrical like jack's kellington was and he challenges This group of boys on halloween when their trick or treating to to give up a year of their lives to save the life of their best friend Pippin who's at homesick can't trick or treat and so they travel around the world and learn about like all these Reports and customs that surrounding death and they wind up in mexico and they eat The sugar skulls and that is like. I'm going to give up a year my life to save my friend and It was just so it's like super atmospheric and super moody. This is awesome so then at of course read all very bradberry. I could find reading stuff. I shouldn't have been reading and so middle school time. Was that in age. Like were you a big reader. Then was it hard to get you to read or was it something where you pretty much constantly always had some sort of book. You're working your way through. I mean i was always reading. Yeah for sure Is reading a lot of stuff But then that book kind of it was like my first sorta grownup book. I guess and after that i started reading a of piers anthony fancy novels and i read like fifteen close and i was like wait a second. It's kind of the same story over and over again and that's florida and Then i started reading a lot of stephen king which i know i shouldn't have been reading And my dad was a weird guy to he. he He studied victorian like them. He he focused on the metaphysical poets. Okay it adds seoul university in career and then when it came to the united states he studied library science all things. wow and so he was like you need to be reading old man and the sea You need to be reading. Was it on human bondage and then lady chatterley's lover and was like that. I don't think i should be reading this. But he didn't care he's like the crazy. Daddy shows like the horror movies to his kids because he wants them to to Have a good sense of the canon. Anna is exposed to a lot of stuff that i probably shouldn't have been but i'm grateful for it and i would imagine while it was definitely helping Definitely helpful for your reading life to have a dad like that and that was kind of pushing it but was there any sort of rebellion there. That because you were being forced to read so many books were pushed upon you that reading. You rebelled against or turn against it because it was it was assigned by by dad I don't know it's hard to remember like like reading moby dick before high school. Sure looks like there's no way. I'm gonna finish so even if it did come from like a friend i don't know if i would have just cause but it did. It did feel like homework for sure At the same time like my older brother. I have one older brother. And he was a big reader to He used to read at the dinner table and it was like a problem. You know But i you know. I'm a little brother saw. I'll read to on just like him. I want to compete in everything we do. Because we're siblings. So he also turned me into the reader just sort of inadvertently and so when you got to high school especially when those are when in in those english courses you're being assigned full size novels and things like that. Didn't you find and really getting into what's canonized literature. We'll call it. Were you kind of a step ahead. That you think In those courses because dad already sorta had you on that home regiment of a reading those types of books. That's a funny question. Because i just realized really recently i mean my dad passed away like over a year ago. and so It just when you're when your parent passes away and makes you think a lot about your relationship in like your whole history. And i was like dude. My dad was like an outsized influence in in my interest in writing in books. I never appreciated him fully for that. He just kinda did it sure Yes and when. I hit high school. It was english. Classes where my absolute favorite My english teachers were my absolute favorite. My locker got broken into one time. So isis i was like no lockers and i used my english teacher's classroom as my locker That's how much we trusted. Each other's liked each other so that was sort of the year of You know camus. And ray bradbury. Shirley jackson and margaret atwood. That's like when i started really getting into those guys and and then i was like all right. This is this is really important to me. Plus i also had study hall. Not how i had studied hall but Journal i wrote in my journal pretty much every day so and so i take it

"I can still access the problems on my side of the peanut vendor without Actively being in pain. And if and I guess like if your creative process relies on you being unhappy that that's something to examine, because I don't know I when I'm creative, there's ah, It's frustrating. It's hard work, but sometimes there's a joy to it. And I just don't feel what I'm feeling. The things that I feel I don't I don't feel Necessarily creative. But this is a problem for a lot of people seeing yourself as synonymous with your Depression, your sadness, your anxiety or whatever. And all I can say is That you'll find another way through. You can always write about. You can still access if you want to write about your depression, or you want to write about your anxiety, But you are right about character. Who has that I I can almost promise you you will be able to Right about that character having Gotten better. In yourself. You'll still be able to remember what that was like without having to like, Immerse yourself in. You know, I want to play a song now. So this is something you uploaded to YouTube about a decade ago.

"It's now, it's me Dave from a cheap wine finder.com off the scary music playing which means is another Halloween wines episode. And today we've got I mean look at it. It's Freakshow Lodi Chardonnay. 2818. Yeah, it's a freak Show Off is actually not all that scary the scary but the freak Show is more reference to a long time probably novel side shows and on the front. There's the mermaid lady the fish lady and it's kind of scary in the Ray Bradbury Something Wicked This Way Comes kind of way, which I'm done with. They're trying to get in. But you know. It looks good. And it tastes great. And the best thing about this one thing I find our for $14 is from Michael and David their their fifth generation. I think the 6th generation still working at the winery grape Growers and Lodi the family has been farming there for over a hundred and fifty years, which is kind of off but I'm talking here which is kind of common in Lodi. There's a lot of the big names there have been there for Generations, which is one of the things I like about it were so many Palm wine brands in California are fo wine Brands mean no Winery. No Vineyard safe, they buy the grapes and they rent the space make good wine, but low tides that I'm not doing an old-school. This is a really good Chardonnay. It's half barrel fermented and 1/2 stainless steel fermented, but they used all new o'farrell's off. I don't know what he said, but I'm afraid now and 80% new French barrels and 20% new American Oak barrels that's expensive. This is a line. I found off $14 and that's an upscale a little detail that really makes this wine because it's got really premium. It's Gotta Stay prudent Michael and David they have different lipsticks sense cerrad a couple of other brands there. They do a good job along with Freak Show also has as in a Cabernet seven young at a red blend which are like those are three of the best things you can get out of load at. And you know, it's a really great place for value-priced. Why isn't this Chardonnay? Leave me alone. You're trying to scare me, but it won't work. It's a really great place though the San Pablo Bay, which is the northern part of San Francisco Bay goes far enough Inland, even though it's The Vineyards are like from 7,200 miles away from the ocean. The bay is up there and there's all these river valleys that go flowing through there. It's lower areas cold air gets funneled in there and they can have wine even though nothing around them is the old able to grow grapes. Napa Valley is north of them and West and they're in the mountains and that changes everything to load. I'm not have the mountains or they're they have valleys. This is a really tasty chardonnays and the oak program with all that new Oak and and the fermentation and Oak really comes through cuz there's some really delicious page here. And it's it's nothing is over-the-top. Everything has kind of bounced out and it's like there's some salty and loose things. There's there's some buttery phone numbers. There's some creamy flavors are some ripe fruit flavors. There's just a lot of flavor here. So if it's not the scariest Halloween one, I could come up with no skulls or you know, anything like that. It does taste really good. Can you hear that too, or is it just me? So anyway? I keep on taking ships cuz it's that good. It's a delicious why it's got its because of all that Oak and the way they made it they you know, even though it's a 2018. It's it's it's still a kind of a young one that's got a good and engages your pal in a really nice way. So that's it for me. I found a freakshow chardonnay from I have the zombies invading my headphones and They're good. So I'm the next one. Keep it cheap, but there's more Halloween's lines come in and adios, and bye-bye.

Screenplay but. These ideas for screenplays I have the whole beginning middle and end in my brain. All these things down and I thought today. That's how long how fun with that the F. I made an album of each of these screenplay ideas like so I don't have to wipe out entire screenplay I can tell the whole story with this.

"I'm Justin Kauffman in this is reset. The world is celebrating the Centennial of author, Ray Bradbury's birth. The Joaquin born bradberry is acknowledged as one of the world's all time. Great Scifi writers the seminal works include Fahrenheit four, fifty, one illustrated man Bradberry died and twenty twelve but the literary communities enjoying numerous celebrations for his one hundredth on briberies actual birthday on August twenty second. The Library of Congress will feature read alongs by actors and authors like William. Shatner Rachel. Bloom and Neil gaiman and Bradbury's official biographer Sam. Weller is doing his part to celebrate the life of a man who's still looms larger than life. You know I think with each passing year that this man has left our planet and gone out wherever we go when we depart he becomes more important to the Pantheon not just literature but to creativity and imagination this was in my estimation I think in a biased. As he said his authorized biographer I. Think he is one of the most important creators of the twentieth century. I mean not only did he do books like parenthood 451, which is a mainstay in in school curricula around the world. Published in nearly forty languages around the world but he worked in television. You know he wrote episodes of the twilight zone. He designed attractions at Epcot. Center. He designed shopping malls. He was nominated for an academy award. There's a crater on the moon named for the man and I just think his footprint on imaginative storytelling is just massive and I think that's why people are coming together in recognizing this centennial is really important. It makes me sad because I work really closely with him for so long and he always maintained I wanna live to a hundred I want to live to one hundred zero didn't quite get there. Ninety, one, ninety, two years old I think is when he died but when you've worked so close with someone like Ray Bradbury and you spent time with him, what do you think people don't know about bradberry but should know about. You. Know I think there was a wad vive about the man there was an effervescence. If you will his life, I mean, he celebrated every single day when I was with, him couldn't help but feel gratitude for just being alive and I think that that crackles through in many of his books. But I think people who read a work like the Martian chronicles or a dystopia and work like Fahrenheit four, fifty, one or frightening book like the illustrated man people think that he must have been a dark and brooding visionary and there was that aspect to him. But that really was not his personality he was hilarious he was gregarious are. Back to when I was twenty one. The reason I'm here tonight is because I quit acting. Because I couldn't remember the God line. Kit, a tremendous zest for life and that's you know I think why he continues to live on. I want to get into the stories..

But a long time. So it's exciting me here. Yeah. We're old friends I remember when when you first started following I, think it was like two years ago or two and a half years ago. So we're we're so excited to have you. I still can't believe people listen to our podcast to be honest I know. Especially all too. Real ask people listen to our pockets. It's a great resource just as an Asian American. It's nice to know that there's a community of authors dogs that are actually owned voices in legitimate though I love podcast. Awesome. So your book is coming out in two days we're recording this on. August second. So so by the time, you hear this is already out. So we're going to hype up the books our listeners can go and just grab it rapidly listen to his podcast. Thank you. Do you have. I. Guess like jitters like are you nervous about your launch it? Yes. Yes and no yes. Because it's finally here in no because I feel like it's been happening for a long time already. So it's a it's exciting just to kneel to finally have the book out in the world and having everyone. Read it. Done very excited. You had. This is your debut, right? Yes, it's my first and only look in the world as of yet. Yeah. We'd love to know more about your background. I mean we're always a writer and what was the process like getting this book maiden put out into the world I never really thought I would ever become a writer I've always absolutely loved reading when I was little I would read all the time. It was my favorite thing like if I could get some Mike Birthday money are doing that always like go towards books like without a doubt. But I never considered. Writing as something that I could do personally. Won I think is is when I was young. There weren't many authors that were. Not White. And Seeing that I was like, okay that's that's not me like I. Love these books. Obviously, I love these authors but I don't think that's that that is me can I can do? So I kind of actually followed in the fall footsteps in my father like what did Biz Adnan or major fight that All all along I did like I love books nevertheless like I loved. Just, the world of books in how it could take away bean escape. I, looking back I didn't do realize that. I did right when I was anchor I never thought much of it but I did right. just refine. Journal or diary land in Middle School. My teacher had speed. The Martian chronicles by Ray, Bradbury. I really liked the book It's budget short stories sort of like said on Mars in then. So her prompt was your own little Martian chronicles on chapter. And having super excited as. Oh. My Gosh is this homework like this can't be homework? This is actually fun. Did that and I didn't think much of it entered it. I was like a penis assignment. That another instance to that like I think this in fifth grade where we did the committee evil medieval course. I also had to write for that class to end up writing like. Twenty K. word count on. The Story? And super excited about that. But then I never thought about it like elevated could be career. Because all I saw Romney was like business medical health care. Fields so might say loss. Eastern. American conduct. Exactly. which you know I still have my day job. Of course in my day job was actually working out really well right now but I I graduated college. I started started day job and. I've been working before you know like I am. Worked Rosen Yogurt shop in high school in like I did internships and stuff like that I worked in the job through college. But my first day job I sat down as her working has. GotTa be more to life than this. Has To. Be. So. Like go back and forth nine to five day job GonNa Commute. Drive home. There's something missing. That job was the right job for me for one company was on the right bit but. I realized I didn't do something more like a Passion Hobby And so I was like, well, obviously like I love books. So maybe I can write like this for fun.

actually that's the suicide of slightly convoluted lisa price is good writing can really do it when he wants to he gets away sometimes with over to this kamei's subscription you'll see a whole paragraph is really lyrical riff on something and i think that's a perfect conjunction of a writer who's trying to get the word counts tom because he's selling writing by the yard and so pope kind of pulp magazine for you gotta get three thousand words paragraph description but he's good enough to get away with it and and it can be able to talk but you go actually this is kind of good paragraph even though you don't need it this is the story of the inaccurately title fahrenheit four five one he wrote it as a long short story as twenty thousand words short story which he wrote in nine days and a publishing after it came out in one of those magazines publisher publisher approached him and says could you at twenty thousand words to this and we'll put thousands novel he said sure and took another nine days and he wrote twenty thousand words more cool and actually i don't know how recently any of you have read fahrenheit four fifty one i read a couple of maybe last year it's a brilliant a fantastic example of a book the central idea of which is so strong it's passed into history allowing the actual the problems with the book itself which are that it was written in eighteen days into an you can really tell my doesn't matter because the the the power of the myth in the twentieth century so strong cultural myth of it the book shouldn't be the secondary issue and yet i'm wrong because clearly millions of people have read handled wasn't it for awhile i'm sure it was a sectarian so it's funny it seems to be slightly lots of brad re slight in eclipse can you think of the kind of the dystopia his that we likes to harmonize tail is definitely come up on inside is probably joint number one now with nine hundred eighty four brave new world bit behind that and of the great dystopia that feels like it's lagging in fourth place because so i watched for this the two thousand eighteen remake of finite fifty-one with michael shannon and michael jordan and i would have to say that it is terrible over terrible sci fi film booked the reason it doesn't stunned his because you realized watching it they try to build the internet into the script at one point and michael b jordan smashes a computer monitor there is loading books books to an internet and actually that just doesn't make sense because you can eliminate things so the idea of like like taking books away and replacing them with TV and the knowledge being outlawed like that is completely incomprehensible at the end of the film they send and the entire so of body of published in all of the books basically in captial in a bird over to canada it has a copyright library i'm sure how how did it get it in the bud let's not talk about that so data exists and that kind of undermines reminds the when you kind of network information like fahrenheit four fifty one stops being a scary i read a actually i i really liked reading terrible so comments on terrible films and i was reading the kind of user reviews of this film and actually one of them made a really good point ah fahrenheit four fifty one the terror on the horror of that dystopia is because you are reading our book and read about a world weather or no books in a book is that is there like sarah and once you put that NFL more china the internet it completely leases it's like what so compelling which in turn shows you that of course bribery knew exactly what he was doing because he is interested as you said gen in the idea more than in the idea of malls rather than the hulled soy approach of of telling you you know the guy who who read the the the color knows novels kin-san robson so they are the opposite they are like that we have to nail everything down because what oh you won't is world building breeze not really interested in he's amazing improvised denise say the my stories run up and bite me in the leg and a respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite when i finished the idea gets up and just feel like that he kind of he's possessed by something and there is that i- reading the stories it reminded me of of having to do you know try to writing stories at school were you given a theme and then you write something you try and put it there is that kind of really simple energy to it and i think he's sort of interests archetypes as well as in and and he's quite explicit in some of the stories is one of the enough of the sun where the people who are going to mars or essentially doing what stunned skyer stood or what the great pioneers heading to the american west for doing and he's really interested in these things malls becomes sort of place of you've abandoned cities he's very big resin i think on that kind of these spaces that are sometimes sometimes get their revenge like sometimes sometimes i feel all of those themes there's all this like so real skepticism about colonial explorer flora practices however you want to characterize it like you know half of the martian chronicles is failures to populate on the absolute a human disasters that occur when people new people go to a place and try and take over and still actually wells we're the world's device in the martian chronicles doesn't turn up nicole willis people living here martian living until quite recently but it seems what type of chicken part of the other foot is is really good sort of reverse colonialism and this is well the the the the white guy spy ship arriving in chronicles is a it was my absolute favorite and that's partly because i'm really fascinated by as a book is a brilliant example of what is is collections short stories is a novel things is people talking about right now in terms of collections of short stories noble visuals martian chronicles is clearly on one level a lotta stories about mawes that he had what lying around because he'd written them over ten years but what he does he put them together in a specific order he rework look some of the content so that flow through which is incredibly satisfying and you really feel you go somewhere through the book as you read through the the other reason i really loved the martian chronicles and you both august the two young and produced a too young to remember this but do you remember when television was so three channels yes and one of the big season with start when the summer the holidays are over in september and i remember being on holiday with my mom and dad incredible and having to sit in the TV lounge in the hotel tale 'cause we weren't TV's in the room because it was the premiere of bbc one big saturday night american series for nineteen eighty eighty which was the martian chronicles by ray bradbury starring rock hudson that's how long ago and actually it's not i mean looking at it now there are there are issues with but but like the book it's kind of charming now it's kind of retro-futurism about the TV EV as much as there is about the book i just bringing you different eras that's an amazing did you something i came across dune research with the end ball chris wrote an introduction to a spanish addition on of the martian chronicles this incredible quo which is which totally struck me i'm just gonna find it in my nose relevant so both has says what has this man from illinois don i asked myself when closing the pages of this facebook the episodes from the conquest of another planet fill me with horror and loneliness and to me is just like absolutely an encapsulation habsi latian if these searchlight search loneliness in the marsh and chronic i'm you took about margaret atwood an atmos- written several times about right bribery this is one of the great things about margaret atwood i think when people would say to her but the handmaid's tale is cy final she got yeah yeah it is yeah i love sci-fi and i love ray bradbury and she's written several essays about bribery and introductions to specific editions tony's she might even have written i know you've got a story there is this skeleton yeah so widely chosen this story i i mentioned skeletons skulls isn't actually in illustration member had to find on the internet because it was one of those one of the stories when i originally read it absolutely kind of freaked me out and it's got quite a lot of bradbury's there is a sort of undercurrent of existential essential horror in some of the best of breed stuff and this you know there's the edit line about webb's to sing skull beneath the skin and this this is a story that really kind of religious realizes that and it's this guy who goes to his doctor because he's got kind of aches and pains and doctors not deigning for him and says he's a hypochondriac and he becomes convinced the his skeleton is somehow war with the rest of his body and notice that his skeleton is in him and people around around him have skeletons well read a little bit of it which you know he's in the process of freaking about scottish and he's like does does anyone else's kneecap move like this what's his thinking casing my lungs and he's and then he's trying to live as normal life at the same time so you darling coming to meet ladies called his wife's sweet clear voice mr harris stood upright his skeleton which is all in capital letters in this was holding him upright this thing inside him this invader this horror was supporting his arms legs and head it was like finding someone just behind you who shouldn't be there with with every step he took he realized how dependent he was on this other thing darling i'll be with you in a moment he called weekly himself said come on now breaks up go to go back to work tomorrow on friday you're gonna make that trick phoenix quite a drive over six hundred miles gotta be in shape for that trip or you won't get mr cronan to put his money into your ceramics business chinoy chinoy now five minutes later he stood among ladies being introduced to mrs with us mrs apple matin miss all of whom had skeletons inside them but took it very very calmly because nature had catholic closed the ben nudity of clavicle tibia and femur with breasts thighs carbs with coiffure and and either satanic with beast lips and more sheltered mr harris inwardly when they talk eat part of their skeleton shows that teeth i never thought of that excuse me he said and ran from the room only in time to drop his lunch among.

"What sam was saying about being able to pull it off the shelf with no knowledge of even the genre it but it might be and be captivated by the you're going to get all this it just it would just spoke david lynch to me that kind of strange man of coming out of her landscape and fought aw yeah and also he's he's kind of you know he's one of bribery which is the carnival comes to town something wicked this way comes and being the scary you know alien strange presence blowing into you know the equivalent to walk in illinois and yet straight man claims in the introduction he's he's got his tattoos from time travel so interestingly the f. the truth gets mushed up right at the root of it yeah there is that feeling it's kind of a grab bag of stove right from the outset to the extent that the i think the story the full story called the illustrated man doesn't appear in this edition of the illustrated man it's it's not in the illustrative reeling to see the panthers koliba tweeted man that isn't it great they're jen what were you saying are you saying brilliant thing about brand rebe rebe not so much being a realtor as because i don't think i've ever read so much in such a concentrated period where he notices that the ideas on these teams that you're saying he's the right so we'd lots of ideas i feel like i'm in like ray bradbury brainstorm meeting with ray bradbury that's just great brockville undefeated john malkovich it's very much like okay network of stories that you can connect like there's a there's this sort of little amoeba idea for fahrenheit four or five one and in osha you should too and there's and there's other things like the feld kind of crops open various bits and pieces of stories like this this flavoring basically basically and there's these things connect together he also does it better i was just thinking i was just reading of his marionettes inc in that which is which is a slightly better version of i think of if you're going to do a i humans humans being machines than the recent in mckinney kyun novel which i have a feeling mchugh must've read the getting the smells of the he famously calls his his what the robot says smells like the vitamin television something that i i'm really restrict by reading again is how much sensory information information there is so clear for me like lots of the an what makes it so easy to read like it was easy to cram oh this actually because that all over all the sort of seen saying is often all these like really quite psychedelic visual sensory stuff it's not they're not psycho dramas is there not really social psychological actually especially in the dinosaur stories the the one other full it through spite sites great story and it's such a brilliant idea and then they kind of having arguments and the kind of making out as as they confront them we'll tell i think that's actually got my favorite line in the whole book in it the special the rocket has been fine for space rockets in these stories all talking been hit by media and it kind of explodes and they're all in their space suits and they will frying off in different directions according to basic rules of particle physics but they're communicated cages is still working so heady from laws one of them's heading for a deep space when i'm well let's do talking they start arguing and the captain they basically they shirt with counterfeiting because he's pressure on the captain because we gotta figure out a way out of this captain why don't you shut up sit applegate okay you heard captain deadpool you're running me you're ten thousand miles away by now and that's not kid ourselves a stimpson puts bone way down see here eight canet this is a mutiny of one i haven't a damn thing to lose your ship was a bad ship and you're a bad habit i hope you break the i think there's as roma's robbery has some of the quality of trollip bassett which is he didn't rewrite much very much well well this is one of the things that i find fascinating about him he is he is a very american coined off he described he likes to describe himself as a magician but he also in-interviews described himself as a salesman in the terms that he would say i'm selling you the idea i'm really good at selling the idea and that is what he is he's he's homeworking going he works everyday row every day very important myth i we had out there without fail at work hard i sell the story but you know pitch picks up that he'd finish it worked two hours every morning before he went to the post of his his data and if he finished one book fifteen fifteen minutes for two hours he'd simply turn over the page and start the next terrorist terrifying on that productivity michael holroyd once told me the most terrifying defying thing about bernard

grabbed you in illustrative man well you know it's possible to talk about what of them the one that actually stood out with something slightly a different somehow to me was the city 'cause it seemed

"I'm really love this book in my sung attempts to read all poetry ever written a pick this up in foils in stratford in westfield hello if you the lovely booksellers there who said very nice things about battling hallo if you're listening but i said i would say on that you the best s. bookshop in london and you are the best book in london this week thank you very much this week interrogated so they had a copy surgeons took a picture up and actually john i totally agree with you what you were saying about it bringing the best of both performance poetry and and i don't know what is going to offend someone authentic poetry well i think we we thought it was a great row last year the same and to me that's exactly what this book manages to do both those things brilliantly yeah one of the key the glories of i think is beautiful on the page the line breaks six knowing how to layer permit on the page something i'm sure samuel you're in the middle of of of doing that right now i mean it's it's all of us are just just keep going to defend did you do performance poetry and traditional verse but everyday precisely put on the front jacket we've both also big fans of the perseverance by raymond entrepot side i think there is feel that there is a lot tim ex extraordinary poetry being written and a surge he's only smith there's almost no ordin like simplicity to it yes this but you know the as simple as the hottest thing to do in anything sunny and pudgy but some you know huge recommended i don't care if the writer gatcombe right i don't give a damn what the style is teachers and librarians forget the functional literature is to pull us like taffy to to raise our souls to make us live forever done six hundred story well or more or lex we just nobody knows i think that's the seven novels it's it's again there is a possibly you a new one of the novel's is really thinly-veiled is it not we're we're we're talking about ray bradbury the great i mean i think we can quote prepar he would he would i would agree and we all talking about illustrated man which is just one collection of the many collections of stories that the great right primary produced during his career and this was the suggestion of sam sam when did you first read the illustrated man dan all the stories in the illustrates man or the stories in the british edition of the straight man which are different from the stories in the american edition of illustration i mean even even the the thing about ray bradbury's even understanding what one book is a is a challenge because the contents are quite slippery they are that it was a very long question i remember i mean exactly as you say they aren't ray right brees swirling kind of ocean of bits and pieces of which each book is a kind of late awful at is i i have a really clear memory also eleven twelve it's my parents old house that was a playroom with wooden floor and bookshelves will run the wall which was where my parents had this huge collection of nineteen seventies hype about books into which delved and that was what i discovered all those books that nobody reads anymore like how robbins violent about unhelpful i'm sure you know people like robots and davis telling him john fowles essentially a kind of backlist utah kogo club and one of the things i found that she i think my dad direction meter was this amazing to volume correction launch double ladle for the bradberry which walls a again seventies paper published was kind of cool gale was lancs fontana or grafton john which we've got the illustrated managing we've got here you know one of those sort of semi forgotten paperback publishers the seventies and eighties and it was a two volume collected stories ray bradbourn remember it so clearly because there was a volume one was red and yellow and how big yellow numeral one and red background volume two was green green on yellow and nothing would read before at all so i come to talk about bradberry nor praise him with sort of austere literary critical hat on as straightforward fan long to buy him with each story he didn't have a sort of brad brie world bradberry universe which sort of self consistent mythos in which all these toys took place every story invented a world from scratch and they shared lots element they shed lots of themes but there were horror stories there were fantasy stories lots of stories about malls vase or dinosaurs it was basically we're kinda geeky teenager like me like comex stephen king suddenly this with the motherload not was it justified belong aunt jane you he said something when we were warming up about bribery which i thought was brilliant in terms of kind of relates to what sarah has sandwich just defining ray bradbury now i wonder they could lead us into that embroidering how you i read ray bradbury or when when the more well i'm not sure if this is what you were thinking of actually some's answer linked so where i remember reading and i and i think i was a lot older 'cause my first full time job was in a huge retail park bookshop in stockport taught which in south southeast manchester and appeal center and it was borders and it had a style then and it was the most exotic arctic thing ever stayed open to like ten pm and anyway i got out that exist just any move saturday and i worked my first full time job after working in restaurants and stuff as an eighteen year old was working in the inventory department in the back there and so we took the books the pilots and put stickers on them and put them on the shelves but everyone in that room when i was eighteen was a bit older than me and had very specialisms and i took to borrowing borrowing things from people but actually i really go into kind of plowing through the classics of sci-fi but in terms of i was really going headfirst i into hate she rose and i remember reading fahrenheit four five one and john wyndham and i still read a lot of sci-fi that's my favorite leisure time reading and that that while i was there i also used to look after the children's section and people would come in and say i also looked after the children's section isn't borders for a while and and i hope you never brought your children to my story i go back in time would come in in and say my child reads a law on they've read all the things from bay ridge they've read other things from your what can i send them to an i used to send people straight to ray bradbury and joan wind and h g wells 'cause they were these stories that had so much going on bull they have absolutely nothing x rated in them ever the very kind of puritanical narrowbody ideas and there's not actually that much complex psychology and they are often known clearly not constant always but they often either about children children or they are all they are seen through the eye of a child that's one of bradbury's recurring theme so i can see an for adolescents this is well so i can see that that's a really good he's terrific booksellers rushing relationship except newly really we would i would give you potted biography of ray bradbury but i'm not gonna do that we have several clips from an early sixties interview with bribery robbery conducted via very specific interview and nikki coot you play clip one so we could hear raise seavy your ray bradbury yes sir very waukegan illinois lucky you know how long ago thirty five years eighty five jack benny was born in waukegan about that time time to know jack no i don't i don't know him but my mother went to school with jack.

is an occasional presenter bbc radio three's late junction roy regularly for the warrior golden qantas and others the book that salmon and he talks about is the illustrated man by ray bradbury a collection of eighteen stories first published by doubleday in nineteen fifty up up appropriately enough it says first published by doubleday in the year one nine thousand five hundred twenty typing this at the last last minute surely the first published by doubleday in nineteen fifty one which is no one eight hundred international fantasy award in nineteen fifty two but before we plunge into into to stella freefall andy what if you've been reading i've been reading a book by lure coming called on chapel sans subtitle my mother and other missing persons dozens laura has been our guest on back listed so we must state that interest she was here to talk about django them's a long way from rona which which is one of my favorite books that we have done on this coast over the years and we also talked about her lost the vanishing man about the last quest yes on episode five of back listed way back when we did christie's own double entry with could just is coming out amazing talent we been going ninety episodes ago so this book came out a couple of weeks oh maybe a month i reviewed this for sam at the spectator and get very incestuous well i was really blown away by the book's it's been guessing uniformly brilliant reviews you don't have to trust me you can trust professor john kerry or you can trust craig brown or you can trust blake morrison morrison who i have i think responded to a real culmination in what lura coming has been doing in her rising up to this point that was certainly how i felt about the book it seemed that she had found a way of marrying her skills as a own critic with a personal story that she had been waiting many years to royds it felt like the kind of book that somebody limbers up for by voicing other all the books and then they get to do the one they really want to do i didn't want to give too much of the way it starts on chapel stands ends as the title suggests with a young girl playing about a hundred years ago away from her parents when her parents france look up she isn't there anymore and she turns up several days later in a village she's returned to her parents everybody knows what happened nobody will say anything about it and it takes approximately fifty years for anyone to begin to tell the go who is lower cummings mother what happened to her not only in those three days but why why she was taken and why nobody would took bassett so the book takes superficially that kind of mystery story and what laura does is apply a kind of all critics forensic roy to family photographs to her a mother's written accounts of what happened and to history and local history and local archive to build up a picture to try roy and find out what happened who her mother as and therefore who she is and she doesn't solve dole that mystery until the final page of the book what i loved about is it seemed like the work of someone who was extremely good at what i do and every type of racing in the book is a great and the structure of the book is magnificent it sounds like i've presented as they're holding the reveal till the very last page of the book but it's for culmination of the book of the themes of the book more than the narrative of the breeds absolutely one fourth why don't say too much about it i just like to read a little bit here about certain chapters of based around paintings and broncos landscape with the full of ecus is a painting the was in cummings house the first image my mother ever owned it was cut out of an art book and stuck on a piece of cardboard and put on the wall and there is a sentence here that i i think he's as brilliant and true and easy and profound as anything that i've read this year so i'll just give you a taste my parents had hundreds of images in the house photographs of newspapers reproductions pinza walls postcards from distant galleries sent by their friends growing up i collected these initial books beginning with the cave paintings of lesko and ending i seem to think with your on a sunday on legrand jet sent by an american student of my father's old away from chicago but the braga was special sacred a world both light and dark and mesmerizing plainly a narrative that any child could follow and and yet powerfully strange even to adults hung in the hall and then in the kitchen and eventually in the small cottage in the scottish borders where my parents later went to live we looked at it by night and by day by johnson purpose on the way to and from school over meals on our way upstairs to bed in the cottage it hung hung directly above the old table shoved against the damn wall in the kitchen where we could stare at it while eating heinz tomato soup a marmite on toast we see pitches che's in time and place and in the context of our own lives we cannot see them otherwise and then she goes on to say landscape on skype with the full of ecus was an object as well as an image now that that is the phrase that for me i thought whoa that such a simple such a simple idea such a deep or idea so profoundly expressed reut roy to the hall of what the book is about what what is the book about the book is how we interpret imagery of all kinds in our lives our day to day lives and in our histories histories of ourselves our families who we think we are even if who we think we are isn't right because we're not interrupting the picture correctly a and that is published by chatto for eighteen pounds nine hundred pence joan what have you been reading this week i've been reading a collection of poetry cheat by j bernard called surge also is it happens published by shattered windows which i i heard about all was made aware of honor start the week with kate clancy whose book about teaching raved about on a recent back listed and j bernard was on that program and read a couple of pieces and talked about this collection collection in it it struck me very forcefully as something that i would love to to read then went and bought it and read it and the background to it is an actual historical the vent jaipur nod was researching at the george padmore institute looking into the event nineteen ninety-one the new crossfire in which twelve twelve young black teenagers were burned to death not enough people know about what the the new crossfire that's one of the reasons for the book not enough people know that it wasn't investigated instigated well muffin people know that it led to a massive march close that fis bridge which was which was apparently that journalists were leaning out of fleet street and spitting using on them as they went past that year was also the year shortly after that that the the brixton riots happened so the book is on one level an act of of investigation of looking into the facts of the case and indeed through the volume the first hand testimonies of people who were there of the relatives of the teenagers who died so there's a there's a research element to it but what j. bernard does brilliantly is link that with now links it with brexit links with the grenfell tower links it with the the wind rush a scandal so it's both a an attempt to preserve serve and investigate the the wrong that was done in one thousand nine hundred one but also links it in a way to the the same problems that are recurring now so so it's a very contemporary book out of the mazing kind of culture that we have of performance poetry and of poaching read and discussed and shared for more than it's been in a generation this volume seems to me to to to work as well listening to start the week and j bernard reading it is extraordinary because it's there's a lot of music there's a lot of patois there's a lot of stuff that you would expect to come from somebody who's in accomplished performance pope but these poems they're also exquisite and precise and complex and the kind of attempt to tell historical truth through kind of the refracted did different experiences different voices different registers they say about the difficulty of finding words that we are facing an adjective crisis isis is much as anything else how do we speak and from what position and how can we ensure that we heard not only the buy those who oppose us but by our allies also lost for words so the book is an attempt to give words back to the dead they say i am haunted by this history but i also haunt it back that sense of them going back into history and reconstructing is already one short poem which gives you a gives you the flavor.
