"When you have dinner with your friends who are writers. You don't ask each other about your world railroad. You cut a fool road gray. And i thought this would be an excuse for me to ask. Tony morrison everything. I've ever wanted to ask. Tony morrison so i said yes. I'll do it and they're just one hour interview could find all. It's one of the most interesting hours. But i spent a lot of the things she said which became very useful to me was. She talked about the relationship between her writing and jazz. I said so. Much of jazz is improvisational. Said is that a technique that you use and she said. I want to make it look like i do that. Salman rushdie is one of the great writers of our time. His novels are funny and brilliant and engaging as hell. I love midnight's children. I love the ground beneath her feet. And i love his new novel. Keynote which is a modernisation. Of the don quixote story that digs into how tv is ruining modern america. And how crazy the country is now. Rusty says we're living in the age of anything can happen where criminals can become king or even president. Amen to that. I've known salman for years and it's always a joy to talk to him. So let's go it salman rushdie on taurasi show in my work. I use magic realism as a way of getting the dynamism and the colorful of black culture and also to try to stand apart from the european tradition. What is it in in your life that you have seen that makes you say okay magical. Realism is a way of expressing. What it is this that the realist novel came to fruition and became influential at a time when writers and readers kind of essentially had the same picture of the world get. Let's say the right. The writer could assume that his readers would see the world broadly speaking in the same way that he did and there was an agreement about the nature of the real. You know an hour of that agreement comes the real is not but we don't live in that time anymore. There is no agreement about what the world is like. The world is a very contested space. It's it's contested politically nationally racially in in all sorts of ways. You know and and so you. There isn't that agreement anymore between the writer and the reader or there isn't necessarily in agreement about what the world is like and so that undermines the foundation of realism. You and and you have to find other ways of telling a story in a ways of telling a story which which assume that. There may be many truths that may be more than one truth and this all those truths might be in conflict other truths and It's it's so comes out of that somehow. Does it give you more power as a writer or does it. I don't think there was a moment when the when the in modern manifestation which really in a way started in latin america brain that moment the so-called l. boom as it was called Those rises gained enormous attention by the use of these techniques because they seem to readers to be reflecting the world to feel like the world that they lived in before i ever went to latin america. Latin american friends of mine would say the thing about garcia. Marquez is not fantasy. Then when i went to latin america i discovered that they were. They were right that actually. It's like that. And and i thought the same about i started out writing mostly about india south asia but india-pakistan and and i felt about that of the world that the reality was so extreme and extraordinary that in fact my books felt to me like understatements rather than exaggerations and again what happened with those early vokes midnight's children when they were published. They were read in the west as magic realist. They were read in india as history book. And is that what. I'm saying that people read the world differently and and i've always suit brought with me that knowledge of how the world is read differently. You know that that allows me. I don't know whether it gives you more power. Because i think that's fashion in literature as there is in everything else and that great wave that went from the succeed seventies eighties with in which cut magic realist. Stuff was very hot. I think he's not really like that. Now no it's it's in a way little see conservative time. Yeah right now But this book i. I don't really think of as quite being in the category of magic realism. I think of it as actually coming from a much in some ways are much older classical tradition. You know i mean the one of the things about don quixote which was a starting point for the is incredibly strange and modern. It feels don. Quixote and sancho panza are characters. Who know they're in a novel right. I do have opinions about the novel that they're in right very matter and i thought you know he thought of this four hundred years ago right And and so my book is it. Pays homage to don quixote. It goes on its own kind of different journey a so but it's inspired by these this old literature which is the tradition of the picturesque novel. In which you have the word pecoraro originally means a kind of rogle scam rascal And the pickerel goes on adventures but in this book you take this four hundred year old texts and you play with that story. But you're commenting on today. Yeah right. I mean it starts with the sort of meditation on television. An obsession with television taking you into a surreal world. Anna's part of your is part of your assessment of the modern world that we are being blinded to reality by television well by the junk culture of time of which television apart in particular reality television. I mean this television that i like advocate. Addie like i'm an addict of law and order. Svu watch much much much too much of it. There's a lot of it. There's a lot of it to watch your favorite show. Probably okay. i beat. I could give you other examples. Surely you love black near actually. I haven't watched as much of it. i should. You're kind show. But it's what i've seen of. It was terrific. Yeah yeah and i like curb your enthusiasm but i really really i really really like loader s but so i mean i'm not immune to television. I'm talking about junk television. You know and and all the other stuff that is ancillary to that like some of the problematic areas of the internet through the enormous untruthful -ness of of the internet and the bad madness of social media. What happened. Just take you out. Because i was thinking you know four hundred years ago. The elder survivors was taking on what he thought was the junk culture of his time. i'd say how these these awful novels about knights in shining mama. Rescuing damsels in distress Were corroding the minds of people at his time. So then i thought well. If i wanted to take something on in that way what would be my target and and and the book started from that. I mean you talk about this world of of anything can happen. Is that what you feel like. We're in because you talk about like the criminal who could become a king. Check the king who could be massive criminal. We've seen that over and over in recent years. Yeah i think we it's. It's such a strange moment where it's as if all the things that we thought were like the rules of how things were are for. They've just gone and and nobody really knows what the new rules are. All might turn into you know and so we just anything can happen. You know the reality show star could be president actually. In the ukraine a comedian who played who played presidents in comedy shows on television. Ran for president in one really. Yeah oh so you have to have somebody who plays the president talk tv. Who ends up being president. You how long this book take you to in a bit years to. Oh so you started working on it. When trump was rising. Well i mean he was already president. Who's already in So were you. Were you commenting on this. You will see the would that doesn't exist to this. Book is trump. Pray i did. I just didn't want him in my book. But but but he is. I mean it's not the essence of trump world in the book. Well yeah yes. I if what i don't want to give him the credit of naming it after him. Sure you know what i think is happened is that there is this breakdown in america and not only in america this breakdown of an agreement about what the country is an and.

Meet The Author, Shane Wilson, Realistic Fantasy With A Sharp Edge
"To the big program as i mentioned. It's a an episode of meet the author. Shane wilson is storytelling. No matter the medium. The emphasis of his work is on the magical act of the story and how the stories we tell immortalize us and give us give voice to the abstractions of the human experience. Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears open minds and help me welcome in whoop. Waco shane wilson to the my duck pakistan. Welcome thank you so much. Thanks for being here. Now it's a pleasure so get get me hip two way our way are you are 'cause i'm not sure i know you're a southern guy. Are you giorgia I'm curly in north carolina. You know what i said. That and i don't know why i said that last night but then i was questioning myself. This is why. I asked you this at first up last night. I said it was raised in georgia. Sir right. I read your bio that you i believe born in alabama raising in georgia but i said last night on the air i said i. It's north carolina guy. And then i looked it up today and i was like no. I'm wrong. he's not where they get those carolina from now you just said it. So where did i get it from. It's not online anywhere that fact. I'm getting it actually. You might be psychic. In which case mybookie dot com is definitely a place for you but yeah i mean i feel like somewhere in the bio somewhere in all of the information out there. It probably says that. I teach college in north carolina which is true. Well i did not see. I wasn't aware of that. So you're you what are you. Teaching kalki teach english literature music. I teach composition creative writing that kind of thing very cool stuff so Tell me a little bit about yourself. How how when you kind of got the author bug. We'll start with the author stuff. Then we'll come back to the music little later on but tell me when you when you first realized the way that it should be thing Because i think i've been writing forever I i'd be hard pressed to find a moment in in my life. At least i actually remember when i wasn't writing I remember my parents buying me. An old typewriter When i was just a little kid. And i remember like i would practice spelling on it. i would ask my mom to spell for me like the the most complex words i can think of a kid it was stuff like rhinoceros right and i would ask you to spell it and then i would like pick it out and so i was practicing already getting kind of the bug and then i remember like second grade. I would write these short stories and just handwriting out. I'd put them in a one of those three prong folders and then i would draw cover and glue it on the front Like saw i was already thinking about book design and stuff even though i wasn't cognizant of that right and so yeah like from the from the jump right in has been a part of me and the through. I think the evolution is pretty similar to a lotta guys that are that are writers in that you know middle. School comes along. And now i'm writing poetry in order to hit on girls And the same kind of thing in high school. And then you get when i got into college. The academic spirit kind of squashed some of that creativity as it will do And then on the other side of college. I slowly started to chip away that published some poetry some short stories and then accidentally wrote a novel while There's a lot to respond to their. But i i'm i'm smiling because i thought i'm going to say this now even though i wanted to say this for a little bit later in the conversation but I thought when i saw romance and fantasy stuff betsy kinda stuff that either A guy who's a player trying to impress women or gate would well you know The the romance stuff is is very light. In in most of what i write every now and then i will dip a toe into that sandbox. Because i think and and i don't write traditional romance. When i do that i write stuff that kind of turns genre upside down or i try to. Because ultimately i think romance is kind of trite and empty void of a genre So when i when. I do play over there. I like to to try to get in. Turn it in on itself. A little bit But for the most part the fantasy stuff is it comes from The my academic focus. When i was at school. I studied a ton of magical realism. I had a professor who is very into that genre and sir My master's thesis was on salman rushdie and midnight's children And all that stuff so yeah so like i was reading a ton of magical realism. And so i don't write. What would be considered hard. Fantasy like tolkien. And those guys right fantasy this grounded in our reality but there are magical elements at play.
No justice in sight as Jamal Khashoggi's murder trial resumes
"In turkey today the trial is resuming of twenty. Six people accused of involvement in the murder of jamalco shoji in london. One of mr khashoggi's friends. He's been in touch with his fiance. Says they're trying to stay positive in spite of the grim. It's more than two years. Since the veteran saudi journalist was suffocated in his country's consulate in istanbul his body sawn into pieces by a squad of assassins flown in on private jets after four nine denials. Saudi arabia has admitted that the missing journalists jamila shoji died during his visits to the country's constitution is the trial will be of little consequence. None of the suspects is in turkish custody and it poses little threat to mohammed bin salman saudi arabia's crown prince and facto ruler who many believe to be ultimately responsible. America's reaction to the grisly murder is a window into how the country thinks about dealing with its historical and the power dynamics in a region riven by religious divides and proxy wars. The trump administration held back a report on metric a shoji's murder a report that the biden administration published last week concluding the crown prince approved the operation despite imposing sanctions on some saudis. Mr biden didn't impose any on prince mohammed. America's president now out how to navigate the country's relationship with saudi arabia and with the region as a whole
Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?
"The. Us treasury department sanctioning russian officials in response to the poisoning the attempted assassination of a russian political leader and dissident alexi navalny ni With novacek. Do you think this is a good idea. I do i do i. It was just unacceptable for the united states to be silent in the wake of russia's most important opposition leader being intentionally poisoned now in prison by putin's government. I mean if we don't lead the global fight to protect democracy and stand up for pro democratic movements in places like russia no one will and what we see is that the forces of despotism are on the march democrat democracies that we took for granted just ten years ago are now slowly sliding away from self determination even in and on the edges of europe and so by standing up to one of the world's most brutal bullies vladimir putin We are also. I think sending a signal to nascent democracy movements and fragile democracies that america is back on the democracy promotion stage so speaking of that. There's a there. Of course. Also the release of the previously classified report about the intelligence communities findings about bin hamad bin salman that he had greenlighted at the very least the operation to capture or kill but those are the words. They're a jamal khashoggi. Newspaper columnist the washington post. The biden administration not doing anything personally. Mohammed bin salman not revoking visa. Travel rights were personal sanctions. Saying the emas recalibration not a rupture. We've been very clear with a saudi. This is an historic partnership. It's lasted for seventy five years. What do you think of that. I mean i think you can sort of connect these two conversations. There's no question that vladimir putin ordered the poisoning of alexei navalny but we didn't announce sanctions on putin today largely because We tend to not levy sanctions on the leaders of countries And i think that is probably part of the rationale for why m b. s. was spared sanctions but i would make this argument on saudi arabia. I frankly think that Nbs weapons matter much more to him than his visa. And so what i would argue is that we should recalibrate. Our security partnership with the saudis. I if they're going to be in the business of chopping up dissidents or targeting them all around the world and we shouldn't be selling them weapons and so. I think the administration is right now. Having debate about what our security partnership looks like and if we make changes to that well. It looked like a personal sanction on. Mvs you'll have a big impact on him and his priorities. Senator chris murphy. Thanks for making time tonight.

U.S. imposes sanctions, visa bans on Saudis for journalist Khashoggi's killing
"This report on the killing of jamal khashoggi Joe biden. i think it's given quite an incipient response to it saying we're going to withdraw visas from some saudi leaders. I will only deal with the king not dealing with His name it's bin salman anymore. I'm thinking how pathetic given you. Saudi arabia state in the campaign. And this really is the best that you can do if you were prime minister. Now what would you do. Hasn't he also said that they're going to restrict arm sales though on the basis of the yemen conflict which is quite a big thing about listening to the if i was a few weeks here. That's got nothing to do with this. No but it does signal a change in the us leadership's approach to saudi in fact the the the publication of the report which was in existence when trump was the president is also a sign of a change and a sort of strengthening of the position with respect to saudi i. It's so difficult because saudi is an important. You know everybody goes or just want a relationship with saudi so that you can sell them. Lots of weapons. Well yes is part of the answer to that but actually they are quite important security partner particularly in relation to counter-terror not quite often why people have perhaps not taken the very robust approach to them that you might have expected when they get inside this apparatus and begin to understand that relationship
U.S. says Saudi crown prince approved Khashoggi killing, imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudis
"It was just about two pages long but those pages carried the weight of the. Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print

According to a newly declassified us intelligence report released friday that instantly ratcheted up pressure on the biden administration to hold the kingdom accountable for a murder that drew worldwide outrage. The intelligence findings were long known to many us officials and even as they remain classified have been reported with varying degrees of precision but the public rebuke of crown prince. Mohammed bin. Salman is still a touchstone in us saudi relations. It leaves no doubt that as the prints continues in his powerful role and likely ascends to the throne. Americans will forever associated with the brutal killing of a journalist who promoted democracy and human rights yet even as the biden administration released the findings it appeared determined to preserve the saudi relationship by avoiding direct punishment of the prince himself despite demands from some congressional democrats and kashogi allies for significant and targeted sanctions. Saudi arabia's foreign ministry responded by saying the kingdom categorically rejects the offensive and incorrect assessment in the report pertaining to the kingdom's leadership democrats in congress praised the administration for releasing the report the trump administration had refused to do so but urge to take more aggressive actions including against the prince representative adam schiff champion of the house. Intelligence committee urged the biden administration

They're very very good at making they were very very good at making me feel comfortable and relaxed and so on and so it was just the most enjoyable the two days so i wanna make you a little uncomfortable because i have no doubt that you're going to get the nobel prize one day and i know that did you probably don't wanna talk about it. Which is why. I want to talk about it okay. Does it occurred you. Do you think about it. I mean you know i would be lying. If i said never oh catch me but i don't think about it very much because you know the world is full of wonderful and deserving writers and only one per year gets that thing and so there's many many more candidates sure worthy candidates than we'll ever actually receive it. Of course you know and and i've been i remember years ago. Starting out newspaper asked me to write an article about all the great writers who did not win the nobel prize and in the end. I didn't never wrote the article but i did do the research and it is an amazing win. The nobel prize started tolstoy was alive and the first russian to win the nobel prize was yvonne benin <hes> who but they so the people who didn't get it stopped but tolstoy tolstoy ibsen strindberg checkoff joyce post kafka nabokov baucus is not fair kafka's welfare because posthumous writing right yeah but all the rest of it's fair of rare and then of course an enormous thomas shortage of women winners of course <hes> so.

That's not my character. It's not my personality the very very cerebral philosophical playful texts which i love but i started out trying to write like borges was absolute garbage.

You're one of the best of all time middle is sort of stuff. I wonder what that voice does to you.

You don't hear it surely much with his writing is so difficult to do well that when you're sitting there facing that challenge you're not thinking about anybody else says you're just thinking about how to make this thing work doc and i mean this book for example. Was i mean it's a very it's a very ambitious book tries to incorporate many different kinds of literature sure and it has a very large panoramic sweep at it. It's trying. It's trying for a lot and the trouble about trying for a lot. Is it if you could put it off. That's great and if you can't you fall flat on your face. You know it's like a it's like high wire with no net so so you're too absorbed by trying to not fall off the high wire to worry about what people say about you know at times in writing novel you kind of i kind of try to see the entire thing once which intellectually is very difficult very difficult the do you get that moment of trying to hold it. All your mind wants to make sure all it's it works and that just it's really hard. It gives you a headache. It's true but it is also true. I think that in order to do the thing you do have to hold a very large about it doesn't matter how many notes you make right you have to hold a lot of it in your head because because it's like it's like the matrix is incredibly complicated located connections between characters events and places and and and <hes> you know themes that cetera and you've and you've somehow got got to balance all that in your head and and see exactly what needs to come next you know and and actually when you so.

My favorite answer to that is when ernest hemingway was asked this by the paris review and he said the most most important thing a writer needs is a really good shit detector. You have to know you will hand. You have to know when it's bad yes because if you don't know when it's bad you don't know when it's good so so that's the first thing is you have to. It's strange. It's like it's schizophrenic because the actor active writing the sentence comes out of one thing in your head. Which is the creative thing you know.

Is you see that it's although this novel for the most part takes place in in america some bits of it takes place in in in london linden. Some backstory stuff is in india but mostly in america but this problem is in all those three countries now that's to say the the current indian administration which is just won a landslide election victory it is very popular is very divisive of setting catching hindus against muslims with very wide acceptance of that happening because he's popular you know the whole brexit nonsense in in in britain is also about disliking farmers and thinking how much nice age would be if they could return some fantasy england in which there weren't any unfortunate brown people around and when the when the country ruled the world and of course ignoring the fact that one of the consequences of the country ruling the world's that they were looting the countries where the brown people came from you know and that the wealth of england was based on on on that so these are not exactly the same phenomenon but they're they're linked that link to your of globalism zone fear of immigrants yeah exactly and i mean i've been an immigrant more or less.

It's the same it's exactly what you said i mean i do you must have been reading as i was this sixty nineteen project we the weekend times yeah and one of the things that writer after writer in that project says is that the floor in the idea of america was was there from the beginning because it was not an equal society <hes> you know it was it was a society based on crime and and in a way black people fighting for freedom way which was fighting to make the country the thing it was supposed to be great you know which which it wasn't right and so yeah i think in a way you know countries have original sins that i mean the original say of of britain is colonialism. Eh the original sin of america is slavery and to what extent do we deal with those things as culture you know <hes> i mean interestingly getting the after world war two the germans went to through a very serious process of self examination in order to deal with the fact of of nazism and i think the british have never done that about colonialism and i think this country still has a long way to go definitely has not done sunday at all what south africa did in terms of their truth and reconciliation.

I don't know whether it gives you more power because i think that's fashion in literature as there is in everything else and that great wave that went from the sixties seventies eighties with in which cut magic realist stuff was very hot. I think is not really like that now now. It's it's in a way more little see conservative time yeah right now <hes> but this book i don't really think of as quite being in the category of magic realism i think of it as actually coming from in some ways a much older classical tradition i mean the one of the things about don quixote which was a starting point is how incredibly strange and modern it feels you know don. Quixote and sancho panza are characters who know they're in a novel right. I do have opinions about the novel that they're in right very rhetoric and i thought you know he thought of this four hundred years ago right <hes> and and so my book is it pays it's all managed to don quixote but it goes on its own on a kind of different journey a so but it's inspired by this this old old literature which is the tradition of the picturesque novel in which you have the you know the word pecoraro originally means a kind of rogle scam or rascal osco and the pickerel goes on adventures but in this book you take this four hundred year old texts and you play with that story but you're commenting being on today yeah right i mean it starts with the sort of meditation on television an obsession with television taking you into a surreal world. Anna's part of your is part of your assessment of the modern world that we are being blinded to reality by television well by the junk culture of our our time of which television apart in particular reality television television that i like advocate addy like i'm an addict of loyd order as we watch much much much too much of it. There's a lot of it. There's a lot of it to watch. Thank your favorite show probably okay. I could give you other examples. Surely you love black mirror. Actually i haven't watched as much of it. I should say you're kind of show. It's what i've seen. It was terrific yeah yeah and i like. I like curb your enthusiasm but i really really. I really really like loader s._v. But so i mean i'm not immune to television. I'm talking about junk television you know and and and all the other stuff that is ancillary to that like some of the problematic areas of the internet the enormous untruthful -ness of of the internet and i'm the kind of bad madness of social media what happened just taking all that because i was thinking you know four hundred years ago the elder services was taking on what he thought was the junk culture of his time <hes> and say how these these awful novels about knights in shining mama rescuing damsels in distress were corroding the minds of people in his time so then i thought well if i wanted to take something on in that way what would be my target and and and the book started dotted from that i mean you talk about this. World of of anything can happen. Is that what you feel like. We're in because you talk about like the criminal who could become a king jack king who could be massive criminal. We've seen that over and over in recent years yeah. It's it's such a strange moment where it's as if all the things that we fought over like the rules of how things were are they just gone and and nobody nobody really knows what the new rules are all might turn into you know and so we just anything can happen.

So let's go it salman on rushdie on tori show and my work i use magic realism as a way of getting ed the dynamism and the colorful of black culture and also to try to stand apart from from the european tradition. What is it in in your life that you have seen that makes you say okay. Magical realism is a way of expressing yeah well. I think you know what it is this that the realist novel came to fruition in and became influential at a time when writers and readers kind of essentially had the same picture of the world okay get that's to say the right. The writer could assume that his readers would see the world broadly speaking in the same way that he did and there was an agreement about the nature of the real. You know an hour of that agreement comes. The real is not but we don't live in that time anymore. There is no agreement about what the world is like. The world is a a very contested space. It's it's contested politically nationally racially in in all sorts of ways you know and and so you there isn't that agreement anymore between the writer and the reader or there isn't necessarily in agreement about what the world is like and so that undermines ends the foundation of realism you know and and you have to find other ways of telling a story ways of telling a story which which assume that there may be many truths you know they may be more than one truth and that some of those truths might be in conflict other truths <hes> and <hes> it's. It's so comes out of that somehow. Does it give you more power as a writer or does it.
