Today on Books+ we have a nineteenth-century story of a woman frustrated by her life and its restrictions - that's Flaubert's Madame Bovary; as well as a twenty-first-century story of a woman frustrated by her creative life and its restrictions - Siri Hustvedt's new novel The Blazing World. And then we have a change of pace and tone: poet, performer and writer for children, Steven Herrick. He often writes about loss and grief and the sheer awkwardness of being a kid. But he also knows how to make his audience laugh.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
