Zadie Smith Interview

"I've known her almost twenty years. I interviewed her for MTV two and white teeth was out and it's been a thrill to watch Zedi grow and operated a public intellectual dropping great novels and Dope Essays and showing herself to just be a really interesting person to listen to I mean putting the also of her accident aside in person ladies as smart and it's fun is her greatest books and she's disarmingly humble in a way that just makes you want to root for her success. So settle in I asked her to talk to me for an hour and we sat there for two. We sat there in our studio at seventy eighth and Broadway and just. This is the most fun episode I've had yet so. I'm. Proud? To. Present. Eighty Smith. On tour ratio. Writing. What do you love about it? I like. I like having an artificial. Set Task To fill the day set by yourself. It's it's that's pleasant. I mean what else you can do its? Own Life and I like the idea of a series of. Tasks except myself completely unnecessary toss that nobody. Has To care about Oh but I sent them a series of books in my mind and then when they're done. I'll be done. I think everyone does that with their life is writing a very. Kind of formal way to do it I can measure out his this way. So. Do you set day go? Goals no because if I did would be very frustrated. So no but I have hopes if every day but I haven't written in months and months at the moment. I'm reading I'M IN A. Like period of reading and preparing but Preparing to start another one. Yeah. But it's much more important for me to be able to read every day them right every day I live without writing if I don't get to read I get very. antsy. Really. Yeah. So how many hours a day reading at the moment all all hours that I'm not. Raising children. So you drop them off and you go. Pick them up. So for about six thousand reading, and then I pick them up again and then after their menu read again. It's The moment is normally like that but at the moment, that's it. Yeah. What are you reading? I'm meeting a lot of stuff about. At eighteen hundreds for something after right. So it's just a of. Research I suppose nonfiction nonfiction near for the most part some novels to sometimes I. Use the bedtime reading with the children as surreptitious. Research, they don't realize it but. The reason we're reading David Copperfield. They need to know that. What are you love so much about reading. I. I really good book recently gyco fronts this with a British writer. WHO said? That actually it's kind of addiction and the strange thing about it is it's a sanctioned addictions and nobody tells you off. For reading a lot when you're a kick particularly if you're. From. A working class or emigrant home as I was everybody's very enthusiastic about it because it seems like a good sign. But what he said in his case Easel. So reading addict, he had very ill sister who died when he was young and reading for him was a way of escaping the world and I think that's always basically true I don't think children who read as much as I did when I was a child are reading because they're delirious with joy. It is a kind of addiction is a kind of escapism and and you realize it when we come to this poker I i. Go. Maybe. Five heavy books in my bag. What did I imagine? What's going to happen on the twenty two minutes away right. What did you bring? Inside Victorian. Home. A book about historical. Mikey Century Court case I lost a load of. Heavy, back books. So. I think reading is just the way I am in the world. That's how I operate and what was interesting about process book is I heard. Expressed as a kind of. Personal floor you know because if if every spare moment you have. You want to be somewhere else. So inside a booker that's. That is a little problematic actually, it's not that different from the people who want to get high off. Be On instagram. Every moment of the day is all about not being way you were

"Shop, and they and I was doing a residency at they've they give it was a weekly show and every month, they would let one comedian do fifteen minutes every week for four weeks. And so I would go and I was like watching Jacqueline Novak like she's top three for me in terms of, like people that I look up to and like is just so funny. It's hard to capture what is funny about her again, I don't know. I don't know. It's just like and so I was really influenced by that think, sort of style of, like, you know, people it is like hit something inside of them. That is recognizable. And yet, it is not something that they can sort of intellectually explain why it's funny. Yeah. And so, for that joke, I think requires a few more bells and whistles performance wise. And that is sort of where why landed and, and it's funny because the I actually wrote this job never had an ending, this joke, was certainly never supposed to be closer. Yeah. When I was doing it on the road and stuff like that. And bestselling is actually, the one who told me. She said, if I wrote a better ending to it could be closer. Yeah. Which I think the closer, which is and I didn't get a second date is the ending of that Joe. That's Yeah. yeah. That I actually don't normally say on the road that is just for corden that was just sort of put it on the, the court. The lava cake bit is what I. Yeah. When I was like, oh, I guess, I should put this at the end of a late night set, because it is a clean joke. Yeah. Like one of a new that it was something that could get in on TV. I was like I need to write a better and, like sort of a second part of the joke that never existed before in fact, do I do that in the Melbourne set to do I do the guacamole been maller. Okay. But anyway, I was like, yeah. This this joke needs that. And so, like, I spent three weeks before the cordon set before I writing that part of the joke and make it more complete your first cone in is. It's a very like this is who I am. This is my story typeset for court said is more like this is what I'm like this is how, I think, what do you feel like the set communicated to the audience? I it is it's like a good encapsulation of like the. Persona. Now, you know, like it is like a moving away from the nut. I don't wanna say moving away from the stuff because it's still all running in the background, but it is less biographical. I think now in a lot of ways or it's less. It's more. It's much more heightened. Yeah. By graphically than it is, like I ki- imperial said this thing. To Zedi Smith when, when they had their show that really stuck with me, and it is, so the Athol like the way I write jokes. Now is that people laugh at the mythologies that they recognize to be false. And like that is like a very fancy way of talking about hyperbole. Yeah. So that is I usually go back to that quote, and go back to that frame of mind when I'm thinking about something that's funny, because like it's it's partially just stuff shit. That say to my friends that makes them laugh. I don't. And that does not even ping to me as joke until I see someone laugh at it, and then, like, okay, how can I take this sort of on this, like weird like unformed thing? And then I take it to the states, just sort of rehab that conversation, but with, with an audience, and then I'm like, how can I miss solid is this concept and that is where the punchline gum? So like the setups that make people laugh stuff that starts in cover sation. And then I massage is it. And that's. The punchline and, and that is really a most of those jokes are the product of that of just of, of that way of writing joke. I think we'll be back with more Jill can boost after this word from our sponsor. Okay. I want to talk a little bit more about this new phone service called visible see a lot of phone services.

"Like, you gotta see how it ends. Maybe it is good at the right sort of like a bag of cheese doodles. It's just like engineered to make you get to the bottom of the of the of the bag. Yeah. And so I'll start there. I think that's a fun thing to talk about is that. I'll just let you grant as long as you want. You can go to many Nesta tans as you need to the you make a case for like, it's really nice that you know, the fact that we are cautious about spoiling content for people who we may not even know there's some virtue in that. And it's there's a difference between that kind of engineered content that can be spoiled in the kind of content that he could never spoil it because ask question make it raises questions in the audience. So if you could just talk about that any lengthy won't. Yeah. I mean, I'm in for a law mean I was theater kid. That's what I did from from eleven to thirty in my life. I was theatre director. And the thing that always used to bother me about theater was sort of beginning middle end, this closed narrative the way that that you know, you have to excite the audience and then give them an answer. And it seems that giving people answers that conclude. Giving them that sense of closure was was not only artificial, but kind of dangerous it kind of addicted people to only feel satisfied when something's concluded and dead, and very these are very linear understandings of narrative and. It seemed to me that great art. And for me, the current example would be say, David Lynch. Lynch doesn't answer. There is no conclusion there is no official moral to the story that that what he's doing is opening up spaces of of all and wonder and confusion, and that's where human beings excel computers are really good at closure at deciding is this a one zero. That's all illogic is it's it's getting to that resolution that fidelity through clarity Lou through perfect. Perfect memory perfect reproduction. So if computers do that what humans do humans do something else humans can embrace and sustain ambiguity and ambivalence. That's where the weird. Third quirky limited strange places of what it means to be human are. And it's it's I understand why we want to quell those because they can be uncomfortable and they're open ended and their strange in their squishy. But that's where what makes us special lies. That's where the uniquely human happens and. My teachers and the professionals in in Hollywood and all will say, oh, well, this is what the audience wants. This is why it's more popular. This is what they'll pay for. And if you want to be paid to make art, then you gotta give you know dance. And and give them a happy ending or conclusion or kill everybody. Get to the end and have it have one clear ending or an and to me. Sort of capitalism, and and the entertainment industry as a whole, of course is more consonant with those kinds of stories because that's the story of capitalism. That's the story of consumption. It's fake. But it's like just by this one thing on TV. And then you'll feel good. You get this bigger house get this better car, and then you'll be okay? And then it's we we know that that's not true. But you know, we can't help and and a lot of people can't help but still buy into it. But still go to the the car dealer or the blockbuster. Best buy wherever it is to get that. To get that thing. And I wanted really distinguish between the sort of open ended art of an editor or a cubic or a a. Kozinski or or or David Lynch or Zedi Smith, you these people whose? Books and movies can't have spoilers. The only thing that could have a spoiler would be art that's about money..

"And I think that that is something that I have kind of inherited in a way just mine is more hypothetical. How how would I feel in this situation? And not to me is the lure of of of of what I do. And I want to know I may not have experienced this specific trauma. I may know of experienced this specific joy, but I have things in my life that have happened to me that I can relate to this. My we've all felt fair we will felt ecstasy. We've all felt that feeling of being disabused all lonely or whatever, and you can relate those things in extrapolate them in exaggerate them. And really. Find out what it might feel like to be in this scenario. Now, an convince myself that this is a real thing trick myself that this is a real thing, you know. And and I think that's where the the magic of the job lies for me. That's what excites me about and telling stories that really explore how people thou- different people approach the same life, the same minutes that were all granted on this planet. How do we use them? How different people react to different things. And use those minutes in those moments because film is all about stitching together. Little truthful moment, right, right? Right. That's what we think to think that we're about the podcast stitching together. Little truthful moments. Absolutely, right. You, you know, this phone until sitting doing having these lovely, you know, you and you can cut them up. You've got these little separate hours that you guys have shed together with various guests in this cozy space, and and and you can back on each of those and you have them, you know, not on celluloid, but you have you have them to access. I can click my phone access any of those things that I will be able to do that for many many years to come. Now. It's exciting everything you just said though, you are a writer editor director, you absolutely will be one hundred percent. And then and then you're you just did a recording book audio book. I did. Yes. Yes. Oh that was that's a deep. That's a deep deep. Google dive. That's our beloved Jeffrey Chiasson, let's see me that he's very excited for see. Well, yes, I've done I've done a couple of them. But there was a they don't not particularly lucrative things to do. But I I listened to a lot of audiobooks growing up. I listened to actors like Richard Briers. Didn't have you know, enriches active that he favored Kenneth Branagh. Absolutely. Absolutely. It was in that much ado about nothing film. All right perfect. That helps me in this moment. But I would listen to those those kind of actors read. Roll darlow. I think I think it was a real dog that which president they stick with you. And you think I would like to do that for whoever's listening to books on now, which is a lot more people than when you were listened to the cassette, and it would stop, and you would open and that's west around aside being put it in. And you'd be told to ten often go to sleep and you're like. The. And so something that I've always thought was quite romantic idea in my head of sitting in a booth with a Cup of tea and an an actually that's exactly what I did. And recently the opportunity to record Zedi Smith who is wonderful author of books like white teeth, and she she she they recorded catalog so far on I voiced actually an extraordinary amount of characters with different silly voices in a book called the autograph, man. And yes, so I recorded that. And it was exactly that experience. You know, wonderful, and it's a really. Fun and safe feeling way to let you were saying explore how you know. How do I turn myself between second to second having a conversation as a? You know, a half half Russian half of Americanized eighty year old ex Hollywood starlet having a conversation with a British Asian character who is desperate to get autograph. Anna, Anna thirds of Divine Brown type character, and those three are having a conversation you'll switching second second between those voices and its own the page in front of me, but it's very pure storytelling. Somebody's written a story and you're sitting in front of a microphone very much. How we all? Now telling that, this this story to someone and actually part of my thought process of doing that was was actually because my my my mom cannot sit through the punisher..

"But myself if I end up getting shot that night in and over two hundred people were injured that night in an at least a dozen killed. Well, I wonder if you can lay up for us, the chronology of the war that Yemen finds itself in now and the battle between this Howdy led coalition and the fighters how did we get here where did it begin? While I think with Yemen's history could take you back hundreds of years, if he like really, but to bring a little more up to date. I mean, really it was seen in the rest of the region. Kind of fall out from the two thousand eleven uprising and the end of that year Elliott da Solly Yemen's president thirty three years. He was forced to step down and hand over power to his deputy, and who then became president hiding in February twenty twelve and solid was to stay in the country. He was given immunity from prosecution, and what ensued then was a period of political transition in Yemen. But really as that time tectonic became quite clear that a lot of people were preparing for conflict in the background and saw the former president was certainly one of those and by twenty fourteen when clashes broke out in Saada, which is the home nine to the he sees identing anybody predicted then that they would end up taking Saana, but it became clear that saw. I had then allied himself with the who 'this and the who thieves have been his enemy for many years there. Zedi Shia movements who were formed us nineteen nineties youth movement in northern Yemen. Took the name of then leader in two thousand four and then fought six walls with solace government between two thousand and four and twenty ten but in twenty fourteen in a classic Solly style. He he teamed up with them, and they took the capital sonar then in two thousand fourteen when I was living there without really anybody contesting that. So that was fighting briefly for three or four days on the outskirts of the capital two main military camp there, but once they got into the city the deals that already been done, and they took over all the ministries without a shopping fired. Then after that despite doing a deal with the UN, and the then Yemeni government, they take more territory and fight down south all the way to aid and on the on the southern coast and then president had. Was a result forced into exile. When the full that way into Aden where he'd run into hiding and once he fled into exile in Riyadh Saudi led coalition, as we now know them, then started their campaign in March twenty fifteen in response to that and Heidi has remained pretty much neck Saul in Riyadh since. Then we often hear that. Obviously part of the problem is that there is some Iranian support for who sees that. They're running back what what's the real nature of running support for these. Well, I think a lot of people try and put it in the sectarian bracket for start in the Zedi is which is what who are actually closer to Sunni Islam than they are to the twelve shares of their on. And certainly always political alignment with Tehran. But both saw and then had after him and the Saudis, always vastly exaggerated this link with Iran, and certainly support and it came out after the he's taken on our in two thousand fourteen from the US from the Obama administration that in fact, her on her tried to stop them from taking or at least advise them not to take sun are the capital in two thousand fourteen. And so I think when people call him a proxy that's again of ours exaggeration, having said all of that along with the conflicts gone on. It's really cemented the relationship with Iran.

This is a concern all around the globe right now like in Brazil, we've been reporting on the heated presidential election runoff in Brazil this weekend right wing candidate gyro Bolsonaro is facing off against leftist opponent, Fernando Haddad disinformation and fake news have been shoot issues in that race. A lot of it is playing out on the messaging platform what's app, which we should note is owned by Facebook user, DARA Cordova is a Brazilian researcher. Now in Boston studying all this at Harvard Shorenstein center, she's also. Involved in an effort called comprise over a collaboration between twenty five Brazilian newsrooms to identify and debunk fake news Cordoba tells me that the fake story. She seeing on WhatsApp are out of control, we make fun actually because the the misinformation campaigns in Brazil. The sometimes can get absurd in what why at their supported in beliefs and fears that aren't totally nonsense like Venezuela supported by Hezbollah or stuff like this. And I was coming here. And I had a discussion we friend that teaches at Harvard. She was trying to convince me that the right wing candidate was the antidote to Brazil knock becoming Venezuela supported by Hezbollah. So what was this teacher Brazilian? She's brazilian. She's brazilian. She probably heard this things via what? And I I started to laugh, and it was like, yeah. You know, what listen here's the website of control over this is ally. This this this is nonsense. Please your teacher at Harvard. But people believe this things. So is that one of the rumors that Hezbollah connection with Venezuela? Is that one of the rumors that spreading on what's happened Brazil? Yes. This is pretty new this is fresh rumor, then there are the older stale remers making a comeback as Brazil's presidential race heats up. For example, we had a rumour about the left candidate being the creator of something called gay kit. Which is supposed to be an educational Keat to teach kids how to be gay. Wow. The application being if you vote for the left wing candidate, you're going to have gay kits in schools, and there will be connections with the government in Venezuela and Hezbollah at the same time. I see what you're saying by absurd just to be clear, what definitive links have there been between these disinformation campaigns and either political candidate like the charge. Ezhire Bolsonaro launched. This is is that a legitimate claim. This is a rumour from two thousand twelve to up in the website of the right-wing candidate. He created this false information. He was a member of the congress. So he took this issue to the congress, and several congress person that are religious they supported him in the story, and this became a monster. Both narrow is also accused of creating another monster a big one last week a Brazilian newspaper reported that the right wing. Candidate was working with local marketing firms so by bundles of phone numbers and use them to mass text propaganda to Brazilians through what's up Brazilian. Authorities are investigating those claims. In the meantime, people like us Adare Cordova are trying to put out the flames before they turn into a fake news wildfire in Brazil, what's very interesting is that as far as I've seen of what's up news in this information. There is no story that is not in both platforms Facebook, and what's up what we see are different types of presentations. So on what's up, you have an audience. Like, there's this thing happening you have to act. So there's a call to action that's very strong share this way. Our country is going to be a Venezuela in five years share this to save our country stuff like this. On facebook. You have the same narrative is the same narrative, but Facebook is more sophisticated they have videos, they have text, especially so pinions all the things that make people believe to what I see is that there's an entire ecosystem. If you look just to what's up. We're not getting all the picture. I mean, I don't want to suggest that Brazil's different from any other place in the world. But I mean is there a kind of a cultural thing here with the contagion of these these fake news stories? Yes, we have as socio and economic component that need to be taken into account when you talk about fake news. What are those guys? I think we have a huge inequality in poor people are left behind and so many things including education, we have a level of instability. That was provoked by impeach. Of Duma that make people former president. The make made people disbelieving in. They don't believe in these situations anymore. Neither the government or the newspapers or I don't know. There's no institutions that they would believe right now. And this is also very important when you study fake news because people tend to believe. In the misinformation campaigns instead of believing the institutions or newsrooms that was yeah. Zadora Cordova on. How fake news is playing out in Brazil's presidential election.

This sunday. There's a very well preserved shipwreck lying at the bottom of the Black Sea off the coast of Bulgaria. It is so old. How old is it? It may date back to a time when Aristander was alive hard to believe this wreck was found by a team of researchers using a remote controlled submarine. They found more than sixty shipwrecks in total deep in the Black Sea, including this one seventy five foot Greek trading vessel, which they estimate has been lying under water for the past two thousand four hundred years, which they say might make this the oldest intact shipwreck ever discovered.

Connect some dots about travel in the classical world, we know that the Greek colonies were right in saying you got big centers. There is lots of movement connection with the Mediterranean as well. We need the traded items, but what we didn't have with the shipwrecks. So this really fills in that missing part of the jigsaw puzzle. It's unlikely that the ship will ever be displayed on land. The reason the shipwreck has remained in such good condition for so long is the water it's been submerged in for centuries. The Black Sea is an oxygen or free of oxygen and more than a mile below the surface. There's not much marine life to disturb the wreck here's professor Adams again. Although it looks so perfect to us. There is very little physical strength left in the timbers two thousand four hundred years is longtime bacteria at work inside the soul of the wood. And they're still actually active even after without essentially that means the wood has no mechanical strength. So you'd have to lift it piece by piece, and even then it would be very very difficult. So I think we all technology that we have available to us. Now, we can record it in such detail without even touching it. That is probably better off left where it is other fines by the Black Sea maritime archaeology project include Roman trading vessels and a seventeenth century Cossack rating fleet a two hour film about the discovery was shown at the British Museum in London yesterday. Still ahead. Egyptian singer Dina Elworthy tells me about the fan boys at shows.

"A full six season convincing ark for all these characters, like all the best episodes or all the most claimed episodes of girls were these bottles, like one. Man's trash beach house or just get everyone in a room and bounce them off each other and girls kind of freight apart when you zoomed out and we're like, why is this person acting like this? Like Marnie season one has nothing to do with Marnie season five Dato like each other wash, I like them exactly or just like the dynamics of the group doesn't make any sense. So when I heard about camping, which is a limited series, it's just eight episodes at starring movie stars very much. Like in that vein, I was like, oh, great. This is exactly where I would have thought that lead it. Jenny Connor should go. Next. They should tell a finite story because that's clearly like where their natural impulses and interests are. I think the problem with camping is that it does have that, but at least to me, they also it has a lot of the problems that girls have. They don't read as convincing the characters in the series do not read as fully realized, people know. And I think that. Kathak has a little problem with what islets being placed in. Okay. So if camping was on dare is AC Bs, which I don't think it would be. I think it would be seen as as quite amusing, I should say from the I laugh multiple times per episode of camping, I've seen a couple of them now that you've seen, we've seen about the same amount. I will also say safely that at least in the first half of the season, what you see in the first episode is pretty much what you're gonna get for for the next few episodes. It's contesting for into the characters. But for the most part, it feels like they had the concept for the show they, it's, it's a remake of a British au, right? British British called camping by Julia Davis. I actually interviewed Jenny Connor, and she told me it sort of came into their crosshairs win. Zedi Smith sent Lena Dunham. The show just to be like, oh, this is a good show. You should watch it and then they decided to make it work and adapt it. But yeah, I mean the the premises in the title it's literally just a bunch of people who don't really like each other, go to middle class people. From l. a. who were up like a I take, it's supposed to be like an hour and a half north of not ohi. But yeah, I think they shot in like Santa Clarita area. But yeah, like you drive a couple hours, so you're removed but not too far move? Yeah, and it feels like a lot of the jokes are derived from keywords from blog posts there. They. Rakia healing and chronic pain, and a certain kind of like there's a b plot about the midlife crisis. The various husbands are going through at various points and it's all of these people who are now that they're out in the wilderness. They're kind of like letting their guard down and sort of saying they actually aren't. They see themselves as at this point. And I think that like if it was just like this kind of well-funded sitcom that was taking place in this limited amount of episodes and put in this very specific setting, I think people would probably come to it with a little bit of a different expectation. But when you attach HBO to it and you put Jennifer garner and you say it's from Lena Dunham and that it's the most significant thing she's done since girls, there's going to be all sorts of expectations. Oh, I totally agree. And I will say like, I think she's a great joke writer. I think Lena Dunham and Jenny Connor both have an amazing voice. They have a very particular rhythm to their dialogue. I think it's cool that they have an outlet for that, and there are a lot of the Matt consistencies were still. Having unlikable female protagonist thing pieces written in two thousand eighteen. But Jennifer, Garner's character is very own appealing and strident and hard to wrap your head around, which I actually enjoy..

"There were there were more straight people in our team, I think than any other team because one of the dudes relate, they were talking to their friend and he was like, look at this. He's like, we're outnumbered. This is not right. How did we do last week with dude, I don't wanna talk about it. I'm surprisingly horrible dodgeball. I don't know. I think his so wide. Maybe. I don't know. Do I like I am an easy target. I looked like I should be good dodgeball. So I think people they target me, but secretly I'm just really bad. So I get out really quickly. It was a whole lot of fun. I didn't finish last finished second to last in the tournament. That's might have been different if you were there. Millie, it probably would have been. We just did a podcast, our friend, Justin who rental audio books just a Molly has a great podcast called Optima living daily and congratulations him. He just hit his thousand episodes. Incredible. He puts out a podcast every single actually several because he has several other podcasts. He just reads other people's work. So he'll take like essays that he really finds profound and he asked us to do so one thousand one and one thousand eight for him. I read a short story by Zedi Smith, which seemed totally inappropriate and he still is going to publish it somehow. But let's go back to the life. Most profound problems can be discussed only with jokes or with fiction. And so you're able to talk about the sort of current political climate in a way that you can't talk about head on without offending everyone. But sometimes sometimes if you write it in this, this sort of fictive narrative, all of a sudden you're able to discuss these things that are somehow less offense. Live. It's like Tana hoc- coats is fiction is less offensive than his nonfiction than is not fiction to certain people. And it's strange to me because they cover the same topics and they the sensually say the same things. In fact, you can be more experimental and more over the top with fiction sometimes because it is violins or the lattice work of of storytelling. It's like. It's like south park gets away with a lot of stuff. You could never get away if it wasn't a cartoon. Right, right. The format diffuses. It's not only is it fictional. But yeah, it's got this really cheesy format that you, you can't take serious even if you try. Yeah. No, I totally agree. Yeah. So I read, what did you read? I read the stonecutter. I just picked that story because it was short. It was simple and it probably her that, like in the five. Do you know about the store? The stonecutter, oh, man, I'm gonna ruin it for everyone here. It's the stories about a stonecutter who hates their job, and then they look up at the sun and they're like, man, the sun. Now that's I wish I could be the son that is powerful. So then they become the sun, and then the clouds blocked the sun. They wish they could become the clouds so forth. And so I, it's eventually become this mountain and they're like, man, like, yeah, I'm, I'm here..

"For a long time zedi smith wanted to keep a diary this is before she wrote a debut novel white teeth before fans packed her bookstores to hear her read back then david smith just wanted to record her thoughts problem is and maybe you felt like this too when you've thought about keeping a diary and you do for a couple of nights and then you give up on it she found the whole ritual of very frustrating keeping a journal wasn't easy for her essay writing though was more her thing these days she writes about other book she's reading or interesting people she's interviewed zaid's collected a bunch of these recent essays for her latest book called feel free your here's eighty smith dig into some pretty big questions like what does art mean to her and how to open yourself up to the kind of things you think you don't like but i started off by asking about that diary that she never wrote because if you don't have a diary what are you gonna burn when you change your identity yeah i i forget everything anyway so it's i'm living in a continual prison what is it about are you writing that turns you off it's just the self consciousness of it i i can't find it very hard to be not joan diary fulham also just the amount of time it takes to in order to describe day it would take day so i don't see how that's gonna work for me i my onto something that in reading these essays they become a sort of diary like i learned something new about you even though it's under the guise of writing about jesus or justin bieber if that's true it makes it very uncomfortable i never i never intend to do that i mean you can't avoid i guess when you're writing about things that you care about just the fact that you care about them is a revelation of self but i i'm slightly off maybe with the present moment and i find the idea of presenting yourself strangest quite peculiar should make it clear when i learned something about you i mean that you do speak about yourself when you when you write about mark zuckerberg you talk about your own experiences there is you in there yeah partly it's an insistence on the personal i do believe in that but i guess the gap between the way i feel about writing the way people seem to these days is for me that's just one strand of it i'm always thinking of this kind of idea mary still about every argument requiring ethos pesos and logos ethos is you know the moral right till the the principle of the peace logos is the russian out of the piece the argument and heath the emotion of the peace in and i think it's hard to to read these days without noticing that peso's has won the day in you know it's someone feels something that's apparently sufficient so when i when i'm writing this i'm trying to balance those things out obviously i feel things but i have very little faith in my feelings as being decisive one way or another just because i feel something doesn't seem to me to amount to very much in the realm of argument i try to balance the three and give them equal weight i suppose i in in that regard i thought because of this is an art show because you're well known for your thoughts on pub culture i do something a little bit different with you today i'm gonna go through the names of three celebrities you mentioned in your book to dish on them that is not true but we're going to talk a little bit about ultimately they're they're sort of greater meaning or at least what they mean to you the first person i wanna talk about is jordan peele who directed the movie get out as eighty tickets into this rose rose he's you know i can't give us a case right that was a clip from get out written interrupted by jordan jordan ill you use the word therapeutic while writing about this movie whwhy therapeutic when you watch that is made by someone who has had similar experiences to you a little ways with very different jordan's mother is white my mother is black american i'm english we grew up in very different neighborhoods but the times i've met him i've been struck by the idea that the might be such a thing as biracial experience which is something i never really considered but full when.
