Next On Life Elsewhere

 

                                  

On the next edition of Life Elsewhere a former carpenter and construction worker, Nicholas Petrie talks about his riveting debut novel, The DrifterPetrie, a gifted writer, and keen observer takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride, as his hero a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is faced with formidable situations. Norman B asks, “Is the author delivering a commentary on war or even politics?” 

Michael Schultz from Toronto explores the entertaining topic of heckling in his aptly titled book, Heckle: Notes From The Peanut Gallery. As the presidential election process gets crazier by the day, if not the hour, we can expect a few heckles along the way. Schultz joins the show to help us get a better understanding of what heckling is all about.

                               

A favorite friend of Life Elsewhere, the extraordinarily talented, singer-songwriter & poet, Barzin, alerted Norman B to the music of Tobias Jesso Jr. Make sure you don’t miss his haunting, beautiful song Hollywood from his new album, Goon.

Also, in the program this week’s Hit That Never Was, featuring London-based, Teleman with Cristina from their 2014 album Breakfast.

A Timely, Intelligent Thriller

nicholas petrie

The Drifter is a timely, intelligent thriller.” Says Norman B, about Nicholas Petrie‘s first novel. “It’s a page-turner, with gripping twists and turns, a cast of cleverly imagined characters and scenes so well orchestrated, you’d think Petrie had been at this for years!”  The one-time carpenter, remodeling contractor and building inspector, joins Norman B in the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk about The DrifterNicholas Petrie modestly recounts the process of writing his book and developing his hero, Peter Ash.  Although a work of fiction, The Drifter calls upon events in recent history. His hero, a damaged veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan attempts to put his life together, then comes up against a criminal web in contemporary Milwaukee. Yet Petrie is guarded when asked if he had an urge to offer up his opinions on war and politics. Instead, suggesting that readers can formulate their own viewpoint. Make sure you don’t miss another engaging interview on Life Elsewhere.
