Shortly after Doolittle, bassist Kim Deal needed an outlet to channel her creative energies in ways she wasn't able to under Black Francis' firm grip on the Pixies' songwriting process.

Andrew is joined with William di Canzio, who is a novelist, playwright, and scholar, and he recently wrote Alec, which expands E.M. Forster's openly queer male love story, Maurice. Andrew and William open up about their first experience with E.M. Forster's groundbreaking love story and how it speaks to their gay male identity. William reveals why he didn't change any of Forster's narrative between Maurice and Alec, and why he thinks Alec's same-sex desire is much more nuanced than Maurice's. Not only is William indebted to the late great E.M. Forster, but he actually knows James Ivory, the director of the 1987 film adaptation. They actually went to lunch together! What happened at this lunch? Andrew gets William to talk about writing sex scenes between Maurice and Alec, and they both weigh in on why sex scenes in literature can be so different than in film or TV. William also provides advice about writing a play, compared to writing a novel, compared to writing scholarship. Are all of these genres related in his opinion? Andrew makes sure to shout out friends of the podcast, including Matt Aucoin (who William adores), Gregory Maguire (who knows intimately about retelling a popular tale), and Jan Balakian (who balances being a playwright and a scholar).

Stilleven In 1944, terwijl de geallieerde troepen optrekken en rondom bommen neerkomen, ontmoeten twee onbekenden elkaar in de verwoeste wijnkelder van een Toscaanse villa. Ulysses Temper is en jonge Britse soldaat die ooit wereldbollen maakte, en Evelyn Skinner een kunsthistorica - en mogelijk spionne - van in de zestig. Zij is naar Italië gekomen om schilderijen uit de puinhopen te redden en haar herinneringen opnieuw te beleven aan de keer dat ze E.M. Forster ontmoette en in Florence haar hart werd gestolen door een Italiaans dienstmeisje in een zekere kamer met uitzicht. Onverwacht herkennen deze twee mensen in elkaar een verwante ziel, en de dingen die Evelyn vertelt over waarheid en schoonheid planten een zaadje in Ulysses' geest dat het verdere verloopt van zijn leven - en dat van de mensen die van hem houden - zal bepalen. Stilleven gaat van de heuvels in Toscane naar de smog in het Londense East End en vandaar naar de pleinen van Florence. Het is een epische en speelse roman vol kleurrijke personages over schoonheid, liefde, familie en verbondenheid. Vind het boek hier in de webshop. Still life From the author of When God was a Rabbit and Tin Man, Still Life is a big-hearted story of people brought together by love, war, art and the ghost of E.M. Forster. 1944, in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as bombs fall around them, two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening. Ulysses Temper is a young British soldier, Evelyn Skinner is a sexagenarian art historian and possible spy. She has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the wreckage and relive memories of the time she encountered EM Forster and had her heart stolen by an Italian maid in a particular Florentine room with a view. Evelyn's talk of truth and beauty plants a seed in Ulysses' mind that will shape the trajectory of his life – and of those who love him – for the next four decades. Moving from the Tuscan Hills and piazzas of Florence, to the smog of London's East End, Still Life is a sweeping, joyful novel about beauty, love, family and fate. Vind het boek hier in de webshop.

Kelly Forster: He Waka Eke Noa programme director says climate action partnership 'on track'

He Waka Eke Noa chairman Michael Ahie says the primary sector climate action partnership is "on track", despite "some unfounded speculation and conjecture" about the process. At the weekend, Groundswell New Zealand issued a press release saying it understood Climate Change Minister James Shaw had "finally conceded" the scheme was terminally flawed and would scrap it. The group's emissions spokesman, Steve Cranston, stated Government and industry leaders had been quietly looking at alternative emission pricing options to the He Waka Eke Noa scheme for the past few months and now appeared ready to "pull the pin on it". Groundswell called on Shaw and members of the He Waka Eke Noa partnership to confirm whether it was "dead" and what alternatives were being considered. In a short statement yesterday, He Waka Eke Noa said the partnership remained on course and 11 primary sector and Māori agribusiness partners had committed to the system it recommended for pricing agricultural emissions. It recommended a farm-level, split-gas levy with built-in incentives to reduce emissions and recognise carbon sequestration from 2025. "We have had positive and encouraging discussions with the Government and we all remain committed to the process underway," Ahie said. "We know there is some unfounded speculation and conjecture out there about the process. "However, farmers, growers and all New Zealanders can be confident He Waka Eke Noa is on track." Over the coming weeks, the partnership would continue to discuss its recommended option with the Government, he said. ANZ Research's latest Agri-Focus report said the proposal included providing offsets for sequestration and implementing farming practices that would reduce agricultural emissions. However, the Climate Change Commission had recommended that offsets for sequestration not be included within He Waka Eke Noa. If the Government took that advice, that would jeopardise the whole implementation of the scheme, as the industry-led agreement was based around that package deal. Pulling part of it out would most likely mean heading back to the negotiating table. At present, the impact of the pricing of methane emissions had a larger impact on the sheep and beef sector than the dairy sector, because the dairy sector was more efficient at producing milk relative to methane emissions and was more likely to be able to implement farming practices that reduced methane emissions, the report said. The profit margins in dairy were also generally higher than sheep and beef, so paying for methane emissions would have a smaller impact on the viability of the farm business.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

What is the purpose of a novel? What purpose or logic do literary critics assign to a novel? How has the novel changed? What does that mean for its readers and literary criticism in the contemporary era? What does novel share with cinema and what does that mean for contemporary thought? Timothy Bewes provides brilliant insights on these questions in his book, Free Indirect: The Novel in a Postfictional Age (Columbia UP, 2022). Everywhere today, we are urged to “connect.” Literary critics celebrate a new "honesty" in contemporary fiction or call for a return to "realism." Yet such rhetoric is strikingly reminiscent of earlier theorizations. Two of the most famous injunctions of twentieth-century writing - E. M. Forster's “Only connect . . .” and Fredric Jameson's “Always historicize!” - helped establish connection as the purpose of the novel and its reconstruction as the task of criticism. But what if connection was not the novel's modus operandi but the defining aesthetic ideology of our era-and its most monetizable commodity? What kind of thought is left for the novel when all ideas are acceptable as long as they can be fitted to a consumer profile? This book develops a new theory of the novel for the twenty-first century. In the works of writers such as J. M. Coetzee, Rachel Cusk, James Kelman, W. G. Sebald, and Zadie Smith, Timothy Bewes identifies a mode of thought that he calls "free indirect," in which the novel's refusal of prevailing ideologies can be found. It is not situated in a character or a narrator and does not take a subjective or perceptual form. Far from heralding the arrival of a new literary genre, this development represents the rediscovery of a quality that has been largely ignored by theorists: thought at the limits of form. Free Indirect contends that this self-awakening of contemporary fiction represents the most promising solution to the problem of thought today.

What is the purpose of a novel? What purpose or logic do literary critics assign to a novel? How has the novel changed? What does that mean for its readers and literary criticism in the contemporary era? What does novel share with cinema and what does that mean for contemporary thought? Timothy Bewes provides brilliant insights on these questions in his book, Free Indirect: The Novel in a Postfictional Age (Columbia UP, 2022). Everywhere today, we are urged to “connect.” Literary critics celebrate a new "honesty" in contemporary fiction or call for a return to "realism." Yet such rhetoric is strikingly reminiscent of earlier theorizations. Two of the most famous injunctions of twentieth-century writing - E. M. Forster's “Only connect . . .” and Fredric Jameson's “Always historicize!” - helped establish connection as the purpose of the novel and its reconstruction as the task of criticism. But what if connection was not the novel's modus operandi but the defining aesthetic ideology of our era-and its most monetizable commodity? What kind of thought is left for the novel when all ideas are acceptable as long as they can be fitted to a consumer profile? This book develops a new theory of the novel for the twenty-first century. In the works of writers such as J. M. Coetzee, Rachel Cusk, James Kelman, W. G. Sebald, and Zadie Smith, Timothy Bewes identifies a mode of thought that he calls "free indirect," in which the novel's refusal of prevailing ideologies can be found. It is not situated in a character or a narrator and does not take a subjective or perceptual form. Far from heralding the arrival of a new literary genre, this development represents the rediscovery of a quality that has been largely ignored by theorists: thought at the limits of form. Free Indirect contends that this self-awakening of contemporary fiction represents the most promising solution to the problem of thought today.

It's not been an easy year for environmentally focused funds, as the market rotation into value-focused equities has delivered a body blow to the share prices of the many innovative growth companies seeking solutions to global environmental problems. Our guest on this week's pod is Jon Forster, co-manager of the Impax Environmental Markets investment trust. IEM is the largest in the closed-ended sector at more than £1.3 billion AUM; it soft-closed to new investors in 2020. Forster talks to Faith Glasgow about how the environmental market universe has changed over the past 20 years since IEM launched, the macro challenges of the past few months and how the managers have used that market volatility, and the key opportunities emerging within this rapidly evolving investment arena.

John and Pu Wang, a Brandeis professor of Chinese literature, spoke with science-fiction genius Cixin Liu back in 2019. His most celebrated works include The Three Body Problem, The Dark Forest, and Death's End. When he visited Brandeis to receive an honorary degree, Liu paid a visit to the RTB lair to record this interview. Liu spoke in Chinese and Pu translated his remarks in this English version of the interview (the original Chinese conversation is at 刘慈欣访谈中文版 Episode 14c). Mr. Liu, flanked by John and Pu (photo: Claire Ogden) They discuss the evolution of Mr. Liu's science fiction fandom, and the powerful influence of Leo Tolstoy on Mr. Liu's work, which leads to a consideration of realism and its relationship to science fiction. Science fiction is also compared and contrasted with myth, mathematics, and technology. Lastly, they consider translation, and the special capacity that science fiction has to emerge through the translation process relatively unscathed. This is a testament to science fiction's taking as its subject the affairs of the whole human community–compared to the valuable but distinctly Chinese concerns of Mo Yan, or the distinctly Russian concerns of Tolstoy. Discussed in This Episode: Cixin Liu, The Three Body Problem, The Dark Forest, and Death's End Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace Stanley Kubrick (dir.), 2001: A Space Odyssey E.M.

It is truly unbelievable that this story was written in 1909 - E. M. Forster's dystopian world feels all too real in our increasingly digitally connected and physically isolated real world. The story is about ritual & superstition, resistance to change, the dangers of reliance on an all-powerful authority, the origins of knowledge and creativity, and a tumultuous relationship between a mother and son who see the world in very different ways. We're joined to talk about the story by actor and writer Kiran Subramaniam, who also joined us to record our full cast, unabridged audiobook of this story! No spoilers here as usual, but we do highly recommend listening to the story as well, whether before or after the analysis & review. It's an incredible story and isn't too long - the audiobook episode is just over an hour. You should see that free audiobook available as our episode 19.  As always, we also recommend and discuss some similar books if you are looking for more great books to read. This week we recommend 1984 by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut, and Foundation by Isaac Asimov.Or you can watch the show on YouTube here if you prefer video.Happy reading y'all!
