    Mark Braude's new biography, “Kiki Man Ray,” visits a place of perennial interest — Left Bank Paris in the 1920s — through the life of the singer, model, memoirist and muse. On this week's podcast, Braude says that his subject thoroughly captured the spirit of her age, “a mix of deep pain and a very deep love of life” that emerged after the First World War.We're used to reading about this age, Braude says, through the eyes of Americans in Paris, like Hemingway and Fitzgerald. Kiki “represents something that sometimes gets overlooked,” he says, which is “the French contribution to this scene and to this moment. People like Kiki were part of the reason why expats found France and Paris so exciting.” She was “living on a completely different rhythm and in a completely different way. She was just undeniably herself, and wasn't putting on airs. And just loved life; she just wanted to do everything and meet everyone and go everywhere, and she did.”Also on this week's episode, Gregory Cowles and Elisabeth Egan talk about what they've been reading. John Williams is the host.Here are the books discussed in this week's “What We're Reading”:“River of Mountains” by Peter Lourie“Colony” by Anne Rivers Siddons“The Emperor's Tomb” by Joseph RothWe would love to hear your thoughts about this episode, and about the Book Review's podcast in general.

    The question that everyone asks... how do I get rich? We have the answer! Starting as a college dropout with no family money, Felix Dennis created a publishing empire, founded Maxim magazine, made himself one of the richest people in the UK, and had a ton of fun in the process. How to Get Rich isn't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. Dennis wants to help people embrace entrepreneurship and share lessons he learned the hard way. He reveals, for example, why a regular paycheck is like crack cocaine; why great ideas are vastly overrated; and why "ownership isn't the important thing, it's the only thing."Remember, with each episode, we will provide a helpful Deep-Dive infographic where we break down the entire book on to 1 page!

    You know things are serious when you can't spit on cats anymore ppppptttt ptttp ptt.'The Plague' by Albert Camus is a novel describing life in a city in Oran locked down to due to the outbreak of the Bubonic Plague. A narrator describes the travels of Dr Rieux over the course of about a year as he attempts to help his patients. There are differing responses of his friends and acquaintances as they all adapt to the persistent indifference of the pestilence. I summarised the book as follows. "I found it a slow start to the tale but I think this ended up making the overall work more impactful as that's how life during a plague would really become, slow & tiresome. There are no valiant heroes nor chaotic villains but the payoff in what one can take from this book is huge." I hope you have a fantastic pestilence free day wherever you are in the world.

    Breq used to be the Justice of Toren - the huge, complex AI that inhabited a colossal starship and all of its thousands of ancillaries in the service of the Radch, the largest of the human empires.Ancillaries are human bodies that were captured in previous Radchaai annexations (or colonizations) – those who resist the takeover are killed and their bodies frozen and stored, ready to be activated and controlled by Radchaai AI in future annexations. The ancillaries are terrifying soldiers – each one is protected by almost impenetrable armor, and the AI never miss a shot.But now Breq has been reduced to only one ancillary body. The book follows two parallel timelines – one as she closes in on the end of her quest for revenge, and the other showing how she was betrayed twenty years ago.There are two small things that hold this book back just a little bit. First, it's fairly complicated – perhaps too much so. Second, it starts off slowly – but once it gets going, it is incredibly propulsive. So, push through the first 50-80 pages, and know that it's an incredible experience once you are immersed in the world!We also talk a bit about the two sequels in the Imperial Radch trilogy – those books aren't as good and are a lot smaller in scope, but if you absolutely love Ancillary Justice, they can still be worth a read.As always, we also recommend and discuss some similar books if you are looking for more great books to read. This week we recommend:The Murderbot series by Martha WellsA Memory Called Empire by Arkady MartineThe Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le GuinOr you can watch the show on YouTube here.

    Elisa Gabbert, the Book Review's On Poetry columnist, visits the podcast this week to discuss writing about poetry and her own forthcoming collection of poems, her fourth, “Normal Distance.”“When I'm writing what I would call nonfiction or an essay or just pure prose, I'm really trying to be accurate,” Gabbert says. “I'm not lying, I'm really telling you what I think. There's very minimal distance between my persona on the page and who I really am. And then when I'm writing poetry, that persona really takes on more weight. I'm definitely creating more distance, and it really feels more like fiction or even more like theater, I might say. I'm really more creating a character that's going to be speaking this monologue I'm writing.”Ian Johnson visits the podcast to talk about his review of “Golden Age,” a novel by Wang Xiaobo recently translated by Yan Yan. The novel, set against Mao's Cultural Revolution, made waves in China when it was originally published there in the 1990s.“It was controversial primarily because of sex, there's a lot of sex in the novel,” Johnson says. “The sex is not really described in graphic detail; this isn't Henry Miller or something like that. It's more like they're having sex to make a point: that they're independent people and they're not going to be trampled by the state. And it's very humorous — he talks about sex using all kinds of euphemisms, like ‘commit great friendship,' stuff like that. It's meant to be a sort of parody, a somewhat absurd version of a romance.”Also on this week's episode, Elisabeth Egan and Dave Kim talk about what people are reading. John Williams is the host.Here are the books discussed in this week's “What We're Reading”:“Time Shelter” by Georgi Gospodinov, translated by Angela Rodel“The Displacements” by Bruce Holsinger“The Annotated Wizard of Oz” by L.

You might know him from shows such as The New Inventors but James is also the author of ten books, including six novels for children.James was also a lawyer in a former life and his segued that experience into his new novel, our book club for this week, Criminals.It seems like just another ordinary day...Sarah is doing bar work at the club. A nice normal job while she's on stress leaving from her job as a cop. She's tending bar when a man walks into the club with a shotgun.Mary is just trying to enjoy a quiet drink. She's always enjoying a quiet drink and doesn't appreciate the loud man in the balaklava interrupting her reverie. Daydrinking isn't exactly a long term plan and so Mary decides to do something foolish.And poor Dean. He can't understand why everybody won't just get down on the ground and give him the money. He needs this and one big score could set him up for a while.In one brief flurry of activity Criminals throws Sarah, Dean and Mary's lives together and sets them on a path to explore what it means to be a criminal and how life is more than simply a matter of Black and White.Through each of his main characters James O'Loghlin explores some fundamental ideas about crime and criminality.Sarah has always wanted to be a cop. Her single dad is her idol. A lifetime police officer she has looked up to him and all he represents. But Sarah's also been disillusioned by her time on the force and is starting to wonder if following the letter of the law is the best way to understand people.Dean went to school with Sarah. It's an uncomfortable fact as he holds a shotgun in her direction but it also gets him thinking; he wasn't always a junkie burglar waiting to graduate to armed robbery.At school Dean was a footy star, but he relied on making it to first grade and when that didn't happen he was lost. Drugs and petty crime helped Dean escape until they became the thing he has to escape from. Is it possible though that there is more to his life, and can he choose a different path before it's too late.Mary seems to have it all a middle class suburban life can offer. So why does she stand in front of the shotgun, daring the man in front of her. Mary's struggling to make sense of her life and is starting to think that these men robbing the club with such abandon know more about how to live and maybe she could borrow a leaf from their book.Criminals follows this small ensemble cast through the aftermath of the robbery and into their lives, such as they are. Questions of right and wrong loom large in each of their pasts and O'Loghlin challenges us to sort through our ideas of crime and criminality to understand how we live when these categories are not so clear cut.The novel explores mental health and the ways it can shape, even steer lives and the consequences of not getting help. It's a surprisingly nuanced look at a heavily scrutinized area and while no one book could pretend to have an answer, Criminals shows us that the conversation is essential and one we all must have.Criminals is pacy and finds a balance between its action and the introspection of its protagonists. While each are, perhaps miles from the lived experience of the reader, the novel brings us into their lives and makes us appreciate they are more than their apparent stereotype might reveal.Book Club is produced and presented by Andrew PopleWant more great conversations with Australian authors?Discover this and many more conversations on Final Draft every week from 2ser.Get in touch with Andrew and Final Draft.

    Dan Fesperman's 13th thriller, “Winter Work,” is set just after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The Stasi, East Germany's brutal Cold War intelligence service, was busy destroying evidence. The C.I.A. was just as busy trying to learn the enemy organization's secrets.“The C.I.A., initially, had people calling ex-Stasi agents,” Fesperman says on this week's podcast. “They got a hold of a directory with home phone numbers of some of these Stasi foreign intelligence people. And they started cold-calling them — like salesmen, like these irritating calls we get at home, except for the Stasi it was the C.I.A. calling. ‘Hey, would you like to share your secrets with us? We can pay you.' They were getting mostly hang-ups, a lot of angry lectures. And when that quickly didn't work out, they then began visiting them door to door, which didn't work a whole lot better.”Isaac Fitzgerald visits the podcast to talk about his new memoir, “Dirtbag, Massachusetts,” which recalls his troubled childhood and his eventual coming to terms with those responsible for it.“I was able to give my parents a little more grace in this book,” Fitzgerald says. “And part of that was recognizing that my story didn't start with my birth; my story starts with the things that happened to them.”Also on this week's episode, Elizabeth Harris has news from the publishing world; and Dwight Garner and Molly Young talk about books they've recently reviewed.

    This is one of my favorite books. The author Erick Hoffer explains various aspects of mass movements and why people tend to jump on board, primarily stemming from a certain frustration or personal burden they want relief from.  The book outlines the attributes of a great leader and how they give the people what they want which is unity over anger, fear and action along with hope of a better future. Liberation from personal responsibility and decision making and a road map to follow.
