Regular listeners will know that we love to get a little meta here on LF, and this month author Ruth Ozeki gave us the perfect excuse to indulge ourselves as we slide into the holiday season. Ruth's latest novel, The Book of Form and Emptiness, is about a boy named Benny who loses his father and shortly thereafter begins to hear the voices of inanimate objects, including the voice of the novel itself. In honour of Ruth, and Benny, this show is all about books about books. We'll dig into the ways that literature can be about itself, from books set in libraries to stories about writers to metafictional texts about their own means of creation, and ask what the joys and the pitfalls of this kind of self-referentiality can be - plus all the usual recommendations.

Called “America's Number ONE Gossip Columnist” by The National Enquirer. Rob “Naughty But Nice” Shuter breaks celebrity news every day on his website NaughtyGossip.com where he delivers all the dish about the stars we love in his naughty but nice signature style. He also may make you rethink your definition of “gossip.” You can also catch him co-hosting and breaking celebrity news on Good Day New York, The Today Show, The Talk, Wendy Williams Show, CNN, Extra and Z100's ‘Elvis Duran.' Previously, Rob was the Huffington Post's only celebrity columnist and the former executive editor of OK! Magazine. Rob has also hosted his own Saturday night talk show on Mark Cuban's channel and his own daily morning show, ‘The Gossip Table,' on VH1! Before Rob was one of the world's most successful entertainment reporters, he was a publicist working for Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, P. Diddy, Jessica Simpson and Jon Bon Jovi! Breaking some of the biggest entertainment stories, including Jamie Lynn Spears's pregnancy news, Britney's first post-meltdown interview, Eva Longoria's wedding, and baby exclusives for Jessica Alba, Tori Spelling and Mathew McConaughey's tots, Rob always knows where to find the best scoop. Now he is bringing all this experience to his new show, “Naughty But Nice,” on I HEART MEDIA in his unique cheeky way, which is always a pinch and never a punch! In his fifteen years as a celebrity publicist, Rob was privileged to have a front-row seat to the most successful people in the world. Being involved in the lives of the best and the brightest, Rob quickly discovered it wasn't talent all his super successful clients had in common. Rather, what all these extraordinary people share is they know exactly who they are—in just four words. His recent book, “The 4 Word Answer: Who Are You in 4 Words?” adds the words “self-help guru” to his already impressive list of accomplishments.

And what a barren and dry land should we dwell in if our spirits were narrowed to the limits of that which we can comprehend! Where we err is in supposing that mystery is confined to our religion, that everything else is obvious and open to our understanding: whereas the great things of life, birth, death, hope, love, patriotism, why a leaf is green, and why a bird is clothed in feathers–all such things as these are mysteries; and it is only as we can receive that which we cannot understand, and can discern the truth of that which we cannot prove, and can distinguish between a luminous mystery and a bewildering superstition, that we are able to live the full life for which we were made.

"In our world, there are far more practical atheists who think they are religious than there are theoretically doctrinaire atheists." -Addison Hodges Hart   Our lives are full of deadlines, commitments, and responsibilities. Pulled in so many directions - there never seems to be enough time. It's a never ending cycle of busyness. If we don't watch out, that cycle will consume our lives and steal our purpose. Continuing our conversation journeying through the Sermon on the Mount, we see Jesus addressing these concerns and anxieties of life. Human nature being a constant over the centuries, a hurried and unfocused life plagued those in the first century as much as it does us today. With so many things vying to consume our time and attention, how can we focus on what matters? For Jesus, ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven mattered more than anything. It wasn't a physical kingdom or institution; it was a simple movement fueled by love and compassion. It sounds simple. It should be simple. Yet, we make excuses and pretend it's complex because we don't want to change. There is a lighter way to live - one with more focus and direction. No, I'm not talking about asking for Jesus as your personal savior. I'm not telling you to go to church. All of that mess is still part of the busyness. The Kingdom of God was never about the church. It was about loving others and healing the world. There's nothing overtly spiritual about helping people in need, but it does change you. Interested in trying life differently? If change happens one step at a time - let's go for a walk. ;)     We'll talk about all that and more snark! Plus, this week's Christian Crazy features: Kenneth Copeland, Greg Locke, Hank Kunneman, Anna Kahit, and Sharon Gilberton.

The most challenging part of being a biographer for Ruth Scurr is finding the best form to tell a life. “You can't go in there with a workmanlike attitude saying, ‘I'm going to do cradle to grave.' You've got to somehow connect and resonate with the life, and then things will develop from that.” Known for her innovative literary portraits of Robespierre and John Aubrey, Scurr's latest book follows Napoleon's life through his engagement with the natural world. This approach broadens the usual cast of characters included in Napoleon's life story, providing new perspectives with which to understand him. Ruth joined Tyler to discuss why she considers Danton the hero of the French Revolution, why the Jacobins were so male-obsessed, the wit behind Condorcet's idea of a mechanical king, the influence of Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments during and after the Reign of Terror, why 18th-century French thinkers were obsessed with finding forms of government that would fit with emerging market forces, whether Hayek's critique of French Enlightenment theorists is correct, the relationship between the French Revolution and today's woke culture, the truth about Napoleon's diplomatic skills, the poor prospects for pitching biographies to publishers, why Montesquieu's Spirit of the Laws would be her desert island read, why Cambridge is a better city than Oxford, why the Times Literary Supplement remains important today, what she loves about Elena Ferrante's writing, how she stays open as a biographer, and more.

While Chase returns to his first day of eight grade, still unclear of his past, his principal lays it to him straight, that he has an opportunity to start fresh, something many people would love to have. Thought confused, Chase starts to really dive into his past and the type of person he was. ...

Allison is also an accomplished author in her own right. She published her book, “Twenty-Two: Letters to a Young Woman Searching for Meaning,” back in 2017 with Harper Collins while completing her MBA at Oxford's Business School. 5:27 – Allison 101 She had a very wild, winding journey before creating Copper. She comes from the non-profit world and anti-trafficking and ethical companies. What she's building now is the company that she wished had existed when she was launching her own book. 7:07 – Ethical brands Allison started as a volunteer for an anti-trafficking organization, Not For Sale, while she was in college and was then hired to work there. 14:18 – How she published her first book She published “Twenty-Two” through Harper Collins. She wrote the book after feeling like there was no guidance or leadership for that season of her life. How do you handle careers and friendships and relationships?  She wanted a mentor for those life experiences. When she feels like she really need something and it doesn't exist, she asks herself: “How do I help create it for those who are coming up behind me?” 21:27 – What is Copper? When she published her book, she realized she loved the publishing industry but realized there wasn't a lot of technology or innovation going on in the industry. She wanted a way to build a base of readers without doing a dance on Instagram to get followers. 28:11 – Her dreams for Copper Within five years, she wants to build the LinkedIn of the book world. A major goal is to help underserved and underrepresented voices get discovered and amplified and find their audience. She also wants to help audiences find each other. 32:00 – Get to know you Favorite genre? Business books and cozy mysteries Does she ever not finish books? All the time.

Abolition Must Be Red: Ruth Wilson Gilmore & Stevie Wilson, Study and Struggle Critical Conversation

A conversation about centering anti-capitalism in the fight for abolition with Stevie Wilson and Ruth Wilson Gilmore. Study and Struggle organizes against criminalization and incarceration in Mississippi through mutual aid, political education, and community building. We provide a bilingual Spanish and English curriculum with discussion questions and reading materials, as well as financial support, to over 100 participants in radical study groups inside and outside prisons in Mississippi. These groups correspond with groups from across the country through our pen pal program. We regularly come together for online conversations hosted by Haymarket Books. The curriculum, built by a combination of currently- and formerly-incarcerated people, scholars, and community organizers, centers around the interrelationship between prison abolition and immigrant justice, with a particular attention to freedom struggles in Mississippi and the U.S. South. For our Fall 2021 four month curriculum, we have borrowed and augmented Ruth Wilson Gilmore's argument that “abolition is about presence, not absence. It has to be green, and in order to be green, it has to be red (anti-capitalist), and in order to be red, it has to be international," having added “intersectional” as a fourth analytical category that we hope moves us beyond “single-issue” organizing. Study and Struggle provides a bilingual curriculum to all our imprisoned comrades in Mississippi with the support of our friends at 1977 Books and makes it fully available online for other study groups to use as they see fit. Our Critical Conversations webinar series, hosted by Haymarket Books, will cover the themes for the upcoming month. Haymarket Books is an independent, radical, non-profit publisher. For more on Study and Struggle: https://www.studyandstruggle.com/ --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our third webinar theme is "Red" and will be a conversation about what it means for abolition to be anti-capitalist, centering questions of labor, time, and unfreedom. While all of our events are freely available, we ask that those who are able make a solidarity donation in support of commissary and mutual aid for our incarcerated participants. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speakers: Ruth Wilson Gilmore is Professor of Earth & Environmental Sciences and Director of the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics at the City University of New York Graduate Center. Co-founder of many grassroots organizations including the California Prison Moratorium Project, Critical Resistance, and the Central California Environmental Justice Network, Gilmore is author of the prize-winning Golden Gulag: Prisons, Surplus, Crisis, and Opposition in Globalizing California (UC Press) and the forthcoming book Change Everything (Haymarket) . Recent honors include the SUNY-Purchase College Eugene V. Grant Distinguished Scholar Prize for Social and Environmental Justice (2015-16); the American Studies Association Richard A Yarborough Mentorship Award (2017); The Association of American Geographers Lifetime Achievement Award (2020); and election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2021). Stephen Wilson is a currently incarcerated, Black, queer writer, activist and student. He is a founding member of Dreaming Freedom Practicing Abolition, a network of self-organized prisoner study groups building abolitionist community behind and across prison walls.

However, this week Sue chooses to be vulnerable and share some of the challenges she has been facing in life recently. During this episode of the Intentional Greatness® podcast, Sue also explains how to move forward when you are feeling bad, and the importance of evaluating the things you say yes and no to in life. Hacking Yourself Sometimes it's okay to resent that the world isn't happening on your terms. It's okay to be sad and upset about the circumstances or struggles that you are facing. When you feel this way, you can hack yourself into feeling better by giving more of what you need. If you want a hug, go give one, acknowledge or appreciate someone when you don't feel appreciated. Once you put that energy out into the world, you often start to see it return to you. Evaluating Yes Do not be too quick to say yes. Pause long enough to evaluate, and then negotiate. If the answer is no, give yourself permission to say so. During the short term, you might feel a little bit of hurt or sadness, but you don't want to give an inauthentic yes because you gave a yes that at the moment seemed like the right thing to do, and then the day of may not. Evaluate your yesses and nos and learn to say no and stick with it.

Siri Hustvedt on the Value in Embracing Ambiguity

When Siri Hustvedt was 12 years old, she began reading 19th-century novels by Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, Charles Dickens, and Mark Twain that were given to her by her Norwegian mother, and soon developed a passion for literature. She found great satisfaction in how these stories expanded her mind with new ideas and realms beyond. At 13, precociously enough, she decided she wanted to become a writer. Her interest in developing what she calls a “flexibility of mind” led her to eventually reading and studying works in a wide range of disciplines, including art history, philosophy, psychoanalysis, and neuroscience. Through her essays, poems, fiction, and nonfiction over the past five decades, Hustvedt's aim has become clear: to bring together perspectives that might help her—and those who read her work—see the world differently.Hustvedt's efforts to break down barriers and build a diversity of knowledge have steered her toward an array of topics. Upon moving from her hometown of Northfield, Minnesota, to New York City in 1978 to attend Columbia University, from which she earned her Ph.D. in English literature, she worked as a waitress, a researcher for a medical historian, a model, and an artist's assistant. She went on to write seven novels, including the international bestseller What I Loved (2004) and The Blazing World (2014), the latter of which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction in 2014. Since 1995, Hustvedt has written extensively about art and what comes from looking deeply at it, unpacking works ranging from Johannes Vermeer's “Woman with a Pearl Necklace” (1662–1664) to the photorealistic paintings of Gerhard Richter​​. Often, Hustvedt's subject matter comes to her because it hits close to home. In her 2010 book The Shaking Woman or a History of My Nerves, she investigated the violent tremors that she first experienced in 2006 while delivering her father's eulogy. Hustvedt (who with her husband, the novelist Paul Auster, has a daughter, the singer-songwriter Sophie Auster) has also long been interested in the peculiarities of motherhood, and more recently, the placenta, a subject she plans to explore at length in a future book. On this episode, Hustvedt talks with Spencer about the mysteries and misunderstandings around gestation, maternity, and being a mother; books as friends; and the problems with putting up walls between disciplines. Show notes:Full Transcriptsirihustvedt.net[05:01] Mothers, Fathers, and Others (2021)[47:53] A Plea for Eros (2005)[53:24] “The Future of Literature: The Anatomy of the Novel” (2017)[01:03:31] The Shaking Woman or a History of My Nerves (2010)
