An 8 Year-Old Liar & What Is Art?


In the next edition of Life Elsewhere we’ll hear from Fayette Fox who says that before turning her hand to become an author she taught sex-ed to “untouchable-caste” girls in India. Fayette adds, she loves helping people, which is why she runs a business that creates the “right profile” for online dating sites! But, the main reason Fayette Fox will be on the program is to talk about her debut novel, The Deception ArtistThis is the story of Ivy, an eight year-old who has a fanciful imagination and, she likes to tell lies. Like Fayette, there is far more to the story than the first impression.

Life Elsewhere, being a program about Art, Media and Culture, we give a lot of thought to the ART part. Consequently, we have been asking some of our favourite contributors a simple question, What Is Art?

Joining the program to answer What Is Art? we’ll hear from David Warner editor-in-chief of Creative Loafing, Tampa; Martin Atkins, the legendary drummer for bands such as PiLKilling Joke and Ministry. Martin is also author of a number of books including, Tour: Smart: And Break the Band; highly-regarded, Brooklyn-based painter, Jeffrey Bishop and Patrick O’Neil, ex-punk and now author of the true story, Gun, Needle, Spoon.

Make sure you listen carefully, because we asked shoppers at a mall for their answers to “What Is Art?”  Some of the answers may surprise you.

Also in the program, this week’s Hit That Never Was features a selection from the British producers, known as Bent.

This will be a must-listen to show, make sure you tune in at 12 noon ET, Sunday, April 12 at The Source, WMNF HD3 and 5.00pm PT at NWCZ Radio
