A Different Type Of Publisher

With a catalog that includes titles such as President Trump Unveiled: Exposing the Bigoted Billionaire, The Animals’ Vegan Manifesto, Kingdom Of The Unjust: Behind the U.S.–Saudi Connection, The United States Vs. Pvt. Chelsea Manning, and At The Tea Party plus controversial authors like Julian Assange, Patrick Cockburn, Sue Coe, and Clark Stoeckley, you know OR Books is a different type of publisher. Founded by two veterans of the publishing industry, John Oakes and Colin Robinson, in 2009, OR Books took a revolutionary approach to publishing by printing on demand, selling directly to the customer, and focusing on creative promotion through traditional media and the Internet. “We are a new type of publishing company. Embracing progressive change in politics, culture and the way we do business.” Says Colin Robinson, Our list is highly selective, combining established authors with new discoveries.” Learn more about OR Books when Colin Robinson joins Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere.

Leaone Is His Name

Leaone is his name. He is a British singer-songwriter. His song, Young Green Eyes caught our attention first. His plaintive voice crying out these tearful lyrics,  “We’re all the same We want to live so carefree And your young green eyes Get me higher I’d like to run back into the open fields Before the clouds went black Life’s going faster Come take me now Kill the silence Take me down Do you crave my love and how I used to move you? Oh, it’s a cold and lonesome wire Hanging up and out to dry When you love somebody When you love somebody Oh how I long for your sweet embrace.” Then, we discovered Leaone was writing from experience, after a series of distressing events, including losing his job, a miserable break-up with a long-time girlfriend, and if that were not enough, he was mugged! Leaone released two more beautifully melancholy tracks, Goldtooth and Fly, My Swallow and we were convinced we needed to know more about him. In the next edition of Life Elsewhere, you’ll hear all three tracks and Norman B’s exclusive interview with Leaone.

You Cannot Open A Book Without Learning Something*

The last Saturday in April is Independent Bookstore Day. In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. Take a look at the photo above, it shows just a small selection of wonderful books we have talked about at Life Elsewhere. If you overlooked any of them. we encourage you to pop into your local independent bookstore and search them out. While you are there, help us a little and mention you heard about the book on Life Elsewhere.

An Extraordinary Advocacy Of Animal Rights

“In the Vegan Manifesto, Sue Coe, human champion of rights for those whose voice most humans do not hear, has crafted a masterpiece: at once visually stunning and spiritually invigorating.”Dr. Michael Greger, author of How Not to Die Sue Coe is the most important and prolific political artist of our time. Her work explores and exposes every form of injustice suffered by both humans and nonhumans. With respect to the latter, her incisive eye-both trenchant and gentle-lays bare the profound immorality of animal exploitation and constitutes a clarion call to us all to reject it. Coe understands that the moral status of animals requires that we go vegan and no one who looks at the stunning work in this book will be able to disagree.”Gary L. Francione, Distinguished Professor of Law and Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Scholar of Law and Philosophy, Rutgers School of Law. Sue Coe also garners impressive accolades from distinguished figures in the world of graphic design, including art directors, Robert Priest and Robert Newman, and political caricaturist, Steve Brodner. Plus, Life Elsewhere creator and host, Norman B says, Sue Coe’s extraordinarily powerful work has intrigued me since my art school days! What a treat to be able to welcome her to the program.” Sue Coe joins Norman B for the next edition to talk about The Animals’ Vegan Manifesto.

We are very pleased to announce that Life Elsewhere will now be aired on Cornucopia Radio run by an enterprising and enthusiastic bunch over in the UK.

The Curious Hidden World Of Felines

“Billy, my cross-eyed Siamese cat had an unusual habit. Before he would settle in to enjoy a nice meal of whatever ridiculously expensive gourmet cat food I provided, he would clamber up to the top of a dresser in my bedroom. Once perched on top, he would skillfully reach down with a paw and open the top draw. Then, he would peek inside and carefully snatch hold of a pair of my underpants. Once secured on his claws, he would transfer the garment to his mouth. From there, he would almost bounce down from his perch and head for his food dish with Marks & Spencer’s* finest dangling from his clenched teeth. When he arrived at said dish, he would carefully arrange my undies around the edge and finally proceed to eat, with what I hope was a satisfied glint in his sadly misaligned eyes. This is a story I couldn’t wait to share with Thomas McNamee.” Says Norman B. It makes perfect sense, after all, McNamee is the author of The Inner Life of Cats – The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions. With a naturalist’s eye combined with humor and a warm heart, Thomas brings the always wild, yet domesticated cat into delightful and insightful focus. Thomas McNamee joins Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk about his definitive book on the hidden world of felines and hopefully explain the curious antics of Billy, the cross-eyed Siamese cat.
