"The next all of it novelist Tom Perotta has just come out with a follow-up to his 1998 novel election. Yes, Tracy flick is all grown up and things worked out a little differently than she'd hoped. He joins me to discuss Tracy flick can't win. An artist and designer Virgil Abloh is the focus of a new exhibit at the Brooklyn museum will speak about Abloh's legacy with the curators of figures of speech. I'm Alison Stewart, join me for all of it, we face at noon. On WNYC. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington, D.C.. And I'm a Martinez in Culver City, California. President Biden is wrapping up a week of high level meetings with allies in Europe. Russia has been the focus and the president says NATO and the G 7 have sent a unified message. But that message has been overshadowed here in the U.S. by other big news events. Before he leaves for home today, President Biden will face questions at a press conference. NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins us now from Madrid Tam how's the trip gone for President Biden? Well, you know, he has had some success here at the NATO summit most notably turkey dropped its opposition to the application from Finland and Sweden to join the alliance. And The White House says that during this trip, President Biden played a big part in that, he called the Turkish president on Tuesday and talked about turkey's concerns about Finland and Sweden, and he said that this would be a great opportunity to resolve all of those issues so that the two presidents could sit down together and talk about other things at the NATO summit and then that is exactly what happened. The White House insists that there was no sweetener offered by President Biden, though we do know that turkey has been eager to buy U.S. fighter jets and the Defense Department is saying that it supports that. That is something that would have to work its way through the contracting process and Congress would need to sign off. But that is something I am sure President Biden will be asked about at the press conference today. Like were there really no sweeteners? Yeah, yeah. Now while he's been away focused on NATO and Ukraine, there's been a lot happening back home has that affected his trip at all. Yeah, I mean, he has mostly just kept his head down here and stayed focused on these summits. I have been struck by just how little we've heard from him other than occasional brief remarks at the start of a meeting. He hasn't given any major speeches or addresses. He's barely responded to shouted questions. And this trip started and will now end with big Supreme Court decisions first, the Dobbs decision that overturned roe V wade. That happened the day before he left. It has dominated the news, you know better than I do in the U.S. ever since. And there's been a lot of frustration from his supporters that he hasn't said more about it in the last week. And now we know that there are going to be big decisions on immigration and environmental regulations today as he heads home. There was also that January 6th hearing on Tuesday with stunning revelations that really overshadowed that news about Finland and Sweden clearing the hurdle to join NATO. You know, it's been a minute since President Biden's had a formal news conference. What do you expect? He'll be asked today. Yeah, the last major news conference that Biden held, I was actually there. It was in March. It was also at the end of a NATO summit. That one in Brussels. So it has been a long time. This will be the first time that Biden has faced questions that were shouted from a distance at least on what he plans to do now that abortion rights have been overturned. He did set up a commission some time ago to examine the Supreme Court, but he's never said whether he supports changes, like term limits. He might be asked about the economy. People's lives are really being affected by high gas prices and food prices. And some of that is being driven by big global forces. But there was not a lot of obvious or immediate progress on those issues in these meetings that Biden had this week, at least they didn't talk about it much publicly. A new poll yesterday from The Associated Press showed 85% of people say the country is on the wrong track. That includes nearly 8 in ten Democrats. So there is a lot of discontent ahead of the November elections. He could get asked about that and I expect he could even be asked if he still plans to run again in 2024. That's NPR's Tamara Keith in Madrid, tamra thanks a lot. You're welcome. As the war in Ukraine stretches into month 5, things are getting more precarious for other former Soviet republics. Lithuania decided to block some goods from getting into a Russian territory known as Kaliningrad, and now the Kremlin is threatening to retaliate. Lithuania, we should note as a member of NATO, so there is a lot of dangerous potential in all this. And Paris Charles maines is currently in Kaliningrad and he joins me now, hey Charles. Hi there, morning. So set this up for us by explaining more of this territory Kaliningrad and how it has become this source of tension right now. Sure. You know, Kaliningrad is a territory that was seized from Germany and became part of the Soviet Union along with the Baltic nations of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia at the end of World War II. Only amid the push for independence of those countries and break up with the USSR in 1991, Kaliningrad became something of an island. Today it's called an exclave that's a separate bit of Russian territory, sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland, which are both of course now European Union and NATO

"You know, this is a, I think, slightly more likeable version of Tracy probably for a lot of people. Although the old Tracy is still there, she had one point she talks about have ever been a big fan of vacations. She refers to, there's no impostor syndrome for me, so she still has that confidence, but she does seem to have more self awareness as an adult, but this is kind of a sadder version of Tracy a derailed version of Tracy from her dreams and ambitions. Do you think that's a fair or unfair way to describe her? That is totally fair way to describe her. And I think, you know, there's some middle aged disappointment that is universal. You know, we rarely achieve our dreams in a clean way, and there's always something that we regret. But I think for Tracy, she had such large dreams for herself. In other words, she's achieved a lot. She has a PhD, she is a successful professional. She's an assistant principal at a high school, she's a mom, she owns her own home, but by any standard she's doing just fine, except for her own standard, which was that she was going to conquer the world that she was going to become a congresswoman and then a senator and then an attorney general and then possibly president. So when she imagines her younger self looking at her older self, she feels ashamed. Even though she really has nothing to be ashamed of. But I do think there's this sadness of having betrayed her own dreams. That's how it looks to her. I couldn't help but wonder as I read this since it's such a reflection from middle age on life as we've accomplished it so far, that I think are you 60 Tom if you're comfortable saying. Yes, I just crossed that particular threshold. Which is a big threshold to cross. And it made me wonder how much your own reflections as you age came through in your writing of this book. You know, I'm sure they did. I mean, that is the secret of fiction writing is that you're always in a sense. You know, writing your own autobiography and I don't think anybody who knew me when I was in high school would say I was like Tracy, but I also did harbor ambitions that I felt set me apart. And there's something about this feeling of ambition kind of softening with age. Like you realize that no matter what you achieve, your time is limited, that what really counts is the people that you're closest to thinking of you with love. I think that I think there's some of that, just some sense of, well, maybe there's a little folly in ambition. And that no matter how hard you try, you can't actually achieve your teenage dream because teenage dreams don't really encompass life as it really is lived. Although you're a person who for many outsiders looking in has achieved a great amount of success, written many books, many of those books made into movies. I'm wondering if you feel like you achieved your own ambitions when you look back to what you wanted to be and do in high school. Yeah, that's the funny part of it. I actually have, you know, there is some satisfaction with that. I think what is surprising is realizing as you get older that ambition itself is a bit of a pipe dream. It really, what exists is the dream, not the goal, and achieving the goal doesn't somehow satisfy the ambition..

"President of the United States, and whether you met her through the movie starring Reese Witherspoon or the book written by Tom Perotta, both called election, she seemed like she might actually make it to The White House, as she headed off to Georgetown university. But in parata's new novel, Tracy flick can't win, we meet flick in middle age. She's back in high school, working as assistant principal. Tom Perotta is with us to talk about his latest book, hi Tom. Hi Sasha. Good to talk to you. You too. Tom, this book is basically a sequel, but it's coming out about 25 years after you wrote the first book. Why revisit this now? Well, you know, I think there were a couple reasons. One is that Tracy flick has become a kind of iconic figure in American culture. Sort of separate from my book. I think because of Reese Witherspoon's wonderful performance in the movie election. And so for all these years since I wrote the book and the movie came out, I've been hearing female politicians being compared to Tracy. You know, Hillary Clinton foremost among them. And we should note here, by the way, for people who haven't seen it, she was kind of in high school this sort of officious driven overachiever supremely self confident in kind of an off putting way. Yeah, and I think she was became a bit of a stereotype of an unpleasantly ambitious woman who alienated the people around her primarily the men around her. And I didn't always love that idea of Tracy. At some part of me really sympathized with her driving her ambition. You know, I think to accomplish anything in life, you have to believe that you can do it. And it seemed unfair for Tracy to be vilified for her ambition. So that was a little part of it, but the main part of it, I think, was the me too movement happened. And I was reading a lot of stories about women like Tracy, Tracy had an affair or an illicit relationship or an abusive relationship depending upon how you want to, what language you want to apply with a high school teacher in election. This was part of the plot of election. Yeah, the book in the movie. It's part of the plot of election. And she was very adamant in the book in the movie that she was not a victim that she had some agency that she made a choice to begin the relationship she made a choice to end it. And that she was just moving on with her life. 20 years later, she's reading just like I'm reading stories in the newspaper about women a lot like her. And some of whom had said, oh, it seemed consensual at the time, but now, you know, I'm wondering if that's the right way to look at it. And she's a high school administrator. And so she would never look at it that way if a teacher she was responsible for had a relationship like that with the student. Yeah..

"He plays a crucial role in this story, Vito is a former professional football player who went to the high school where Tracy now teaches. And the action of this novel is that Tracy is on a committee that is charged with choosing people to honor in a new Hall of Fame. And the first person everyone wants to honor is this guy veto falcone. He was a star football player back in high school. He was great in college and he played three seasons in the pros before knee injury and to his career. So he had kind of an undistinguished pro career. Now he's a high school football coach, but he's beginning to suffer some cognitive problems that he's pretty sure are related to brain trauma from concussions that he got while playing football. And so he's in recovery, his family's falling apart. He feels like he's losing his grip a little bit on his memory on his ability to just do pretty ordinary things. And he's scared. And he's also on that step in recovery where he's apologizing to people he's wronged in there are a lot of people that veto has wronged. And actually began the book with that idea that there was going to be a football player with brain trauma who goes back to his hometown to be honored and keeps finding himself confronted by people in the past that he had mistreated because it felt like such a really interesting metaphor for this state of masculinity in our culture right now. That certain football players are still honored in our culture, but I think we also see boy that takes a toll on them and there's a sense that these guys who seemed like the embodiment of a certain kind of physical and cultural power are also vulnerable and damaged and even figures to be pitied. And I thought that was a really interesting place to start. And I think Vito almost summoned Tracy because the high school veto is the kind of guy who just drove Tracy crazy. Oh, that's interesting. So you're saying that the idea of veto came pre election SQL idea? Absolutely. Yeah, I was writing this book about Vito and I kept wanting to write it the way that I had written election in these chapters with multiple narrators, kind of oral history style, as you say, a polyphonic book where all these voices are chiming in to tell a story, but I felt like I can't write this book like election. It felt like the wrong thing to do until I realized that Tracy was in this high school and that it was in a sense very much emerging from election and then realized, oh, it's kind of a sequel, though I don't love that word. It's a stand-alone novel that has Tracy in it, but at a very different time in her life. You could read Tracy flick can't win without having read election, I think it'll be fine. But in election, mister M S this football player, Paul, to run because he thinks Paul would be the candidate to beat Tracy because as a sort of likeable football hero. He'll have support across the board in school that Tracy wouldn't have..

optioned maybe it already has been just as election did Do you hope again to see Reese Witherspoon play the role of Tracy flick Could you see anyone else playing that role I can't you know And when I finished this book I sent a copy to Reese Witherspoon and I told her you know that when I was writing it I could hear her version of Tracy in my head I couldn't really access the Tracy that I had imagined 25 years ago But before the movie oh really Yeah I couldn't I don't even remember what it was like It's happened with other film versions of my work as well When a really good actor embodies a character it's hard to remember what the character felt like to you when they were just words on a page So I was definitely in a kind of a conversation not only with the novel election but with the movie election in particularly with Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of Tracy That's author Tom Perotta his latest book is Tracy flick can't win.

"Know, just so happens, coincidentally, that I live in California, and I actually commute to D.C. for three out of four weeks of every month. And I happen to be here this week. And if you can come to my house, like one and a half days from now, you can interview with me. And so I'm pretty scared about this thing because I don't know what a White House interview is going to look like. And so I spend the next 24 hours calling everybody smart that I know in my entire life and mining them for wisdom and insight. A good student. And what I could do. The good version of Tracy flick is coming out. And so I call everyone, and I'm like, what ideas would you have? On policy? Yeah, like for what you want to translate from behavioral science into policy. And I have to get like a business suit. Like I just don't, I mean, as a postdoc who's writing a bike everywhere, I only have athleisure. And so I go get a business suit, I have to borrow my friend's car. I don't even have a car to drive to this guy's house. And I show up and it's not at all what I'm expecting. I'm expecting this stiff government bureaucrat. And instead I come in and there's like toys during everywhere and he's got his shirt untucked and it was like a very familiar, cozy home. And his family was super nice and warm. So anyway, sit down with him and don't forget there's no role I'm interviewing for. So the onus is on me to pitch him on the idea of even creating a new role for a behavioral scientist. You have to present some kind of value proposition that would substantiate them hiring you for something they haven't even really thought of. That's exactly well said. That's exactly right. And so I start talking about the different ideas I have and at one point I talk about how the First Lady Michelle Obama's language for her let's move initiative could be improved using some insights from behavioral science. And his response to that is, oh, well yeah, I mean, I know the First Lady and her chief of staff, so we can make that happen. Right. Your head's exploding. What? Yeah. I mean, again, I was in the ivory tower, so to speak, where in my world, ideas went to die. And suddenly this guy's telling me, I've got a translation system for you in the form of you actually working in the federal government and actually getting to apply all these insights that are in your head or out in the field and out in research into measurable improvements in people's lives. And this is happening near the end of the first term. Yeah, so this is actually weeks before Obama's second term election. So I think it was like in maybe early October or something. And so I remember at the end of the conversation, which was so much fun, by the way. I went there so nervous. And then all of a sudden it just felt like this extremely fun kid in a candy shop talking about all these fun ideas and did he give you the job though? How did it? Yeah, so it was very confusing at the end. He said, well, I'd love to keep in touch. And I was like, okay, is that like? Don't call me. I'll call you situation. I enjoyed our chat, talk to you in three years, or I enjoyed our chat, want to give you a job. So I kind of asked for clarity. I was like, hey, so let's just unpack that for a second. What exactly does that mean? In Hollywood, that means I'm never speaking to you. I love to keep in touch. That's a very lukewarm feedback. And so he said, no, here's the deal. First of all, no plans can be made until we find out if Obama wins his reelection in a few weeks. And I was like, yeah, right. Oh, totally fair. By the way, at the time, the biggest threat the Democrats face was Mitt Romney. So ha ha jokes on us, if you fast forward. Of a time. And so, yeah, I wanted to work for Obama, not Romney, just personal preference. And so we had to wait for that. And then he said, I have to pitch the entire office on creating this new role. So that's going to take me a little bit of time. You have to interview with the chief of staff and the deputy chief of staff. And then third, and this is where my west wing visions kind of crumbled. He was like, we're going to just have to make sure we can find you a desk. And that's when I realized, actually, The White House is quite resource constrained. And it really just comes down to how many chairs and desks are allowed in there with the fire safety codes. Right. You might come down to something as simple as the woman who was hired for the general counsel's office in west wing, who ended up in the basement. There you go. Boiler room. Some of the most important people in The White House are working in the west wing basement with no windows. That's how you know you really made it when there's no, there's no windows in sight. And so, I mean, I'm already waiting for that election result, but I'm really freaking waiting for that election result in that year in 2012. And what was, again, I can't believe I did this, but I ended up breaking my lease in California and signing a one year lease in D.C. before I even had a written job offer. That's pretty ballsy. I sold everything but my bike, which I kept in my aunt's garage. And I was like, I might need this. He must have given you a deep amount of he gave me enough verbal hope. And maybe a light email here and there. But 100%, I mean, you don't get to control the process, right? There's security clearances like the FBI will randomly call your sister and be like, so tell me about Maya. And so you don't get to control all of it. I really wanted this to happen. Sorry, I keep stepping on your arm. It is an extrapolation of the theme of knocking on doors. You're like, I'm just going to show up. And I'm going to, you know, if I've waited long enough, I'm going to go knock on the door and manifest this, make this thing happen. I had that visual in my mind, which is like, I'm just going to be on The White House door steps. And I'm just going to wait until it happens. And I'm just going to show how much I want this job. Be friends with a security guard outside The White House. Yeah, they won't let me just march in there with good reason. I grew up in D.C.. I lived in lived in DuPont circle. It was a lovely experience. And D.C. is so charming. So yeah, so I moved to D.C. and that's when the real challenge begins..

"All right what I always want to know when I talked to people who worked in his office. And I I did a Ron Paul Week early on in the history of the show I did NORM MM SINGLETON Steve. Beer felt and several other people who worked for him at one time or another and I just wanted to get something of the texture of what it was like to be in his office. I wanted to get anecdotes anecdotes I wanted to. I wanted to know stories because I think that's not so much. What bills did he vote? No on but what was it like to work in. Ron Paul's Office compared to the Office of Congressman Schmo. Down the hall. So what can you share with us. Maybe that people haven't heard before It's so funny. Because he's such nice guy you really is. What you see is what you get? There's no different rod behind the scenes or something in most members of Congress a really lafley mediocre in terms of what they've they've done in their lives and they're mostly self important. It's unbelievable even the staffers. Some of them become self report. I mean it's just they say is Hollywood for ugly ugly people You know it really is Hollywood. In the sense that their status and there's hierarchy and you're the chairman of such and such and that's higher than someone who's just a ranking member of such and such you know so that stuff is just endless. And of course Ron had no interest in any of that he came from being a medical doctor had never run for office or held office before. Or he was in Congress in the in the nineteen seventies and so most members of Congress. Have you know they've gone to Tuesday evening. Zoning meetings in their county for five years first and then become a state rep and then ultimately it got in their name out there and run. For Congress they tend to be sort of the Tracy Flick's people have seen the movie election Which is a great great movie which I recommend so the the Tracy Flick's of the world and Ron was nothing like that and you know just a very nice warm guy and Carol would come up to the office and You know his personality demeanor very unlike rand he he is very very sort of salt of the earth in his approach. And there's so many times I remember. Remember things they just they just stick out to me Twenty twelve I guess during the second presidential campaign and I didn't organize is campaigns. I worked in his congressional office two very separate things but nonetheless there was a CNN debate and it was held at the Constitution town hall which is run by the daughters of the American revolution. And it's a very nice venue in DC and so-. Ron was in town for votes and was going to attend this Republican primary debate. Of course Mitt Romney was still riding high at this point as the front runner in that primary and Wolf Blitzer happen to be the host and so this was going to be a big debate. And I'm sure that Mitt Romney arrived several days in advance check into some giant hotel suite with about twenty handlers and sat there in front of a mirror testing out different phrases and figure out which necktie he was gonNA aware and and how how much real cream to putting his hair or whatever and contrast this with Rod. We're still in the office about four caucuses. Well I'm going to run home to my condo and then we'll come back arena. Wanted to come with me of course Roz just wearing his same old sort of inexpensive suit. That doesn't fit quite right and whatever tie he doesn't worry about these sort of things and we. We go over to his condo in in northern. Virginia which is very modest. I've eighty was the seventies condo that he'd bought the first time around in Congress. And you know he's just in there. I heat up some Campbell soup for something and we're about an hour for this debate starts. He just wasn't worried about it because he felt like whatever they asked him he would have to answer it. He wasn't going to particular worry about what he was going to say and that his answer would be the same whether that was a CNN audience or constituent his office or speaking in front of the prisoners Or speak in front of a church group just just didn't matter and so that just struck me that and then of course just. The two of US went over the debate newest no big deal and and he did his usual style so I really enjoyed things like Dad Dad and the you know the idea that he I think suffered somewhat is interesting professionally. He had to give up being a medical doctor He we all ultimately sold the building he owned for his medical practice. I think he made less money Certainly being a member of Congress than he did being a medical doctor you know just the idea that he held onto.
