Next on Life Elsewhere, Norman B interviews two accomplished authors and selects music you need to hear.
Before Edward Snowden’s infamous data breach, the largest theft of government secrets was committed by an ingenious traitor whose intricate espionage scheme and complex system of coded messages were made even more baffling by his dyslexia. His name is Brian Regan, but he came to be known as The Spy Who Couldn’t Spell, the title of Yudhijit Bhattacharjee’s latest engaging book.
Sonia Taitz’s new novel, Great With Child, is a well-crafted summer read about an aspiring lawyer, who happens to be single and pregnant, involved in a love triangle while engaged in an intriguing sub-plot. But, is Sonia Taitz cleverly presenting a shrewd observation on the hurdles of being a working mother dealing with rampant misogyny and difficult career choices?
“So much new, interesting music comes my way,” says Norman B, “And, every so often I hear something that I feel you need to hear too. F/V Hope the new album from Philadelphia-based Friendship is such an album. It’s a curio that surprises me on each play. The cut I selected, Seen But No Reply is based on a modern theme – email. Yet the arrangement, instrumentation, plaintive vocal and even the tempo suggests it’s from another era, maybe the past, or possibly an unknown future.”
