Antoine Wilson On Fools, Symbolism, The Writing Process & Panorama City

Antoine“One of the most enchanting books I’ve read in a long time”, says Norman B of Antoine Wilson’s second novel, Panorama City. The California-based author joins Life Elsewhere to talk about Fools, Symbolism and The Writing Process, subjects all related to his extraordinary tale of Oppen Porter a twenty-eight-year-old, open-hearted, bicycle-riding, binocular-toting, self-described slow absorber.Porter relates a tale of self-determination, from village idiot to man of the world, for the benefit of his unborn son. Through the voice of one of literary’s unlikely heroes, Wilson manages to engage the reader with genius wit and brilliant observations.

Join Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere with Antoine Wilson, also New York Times best-selling author, Beth Hoffman who is on a book tour promoting her new novel Looking for Me, while supporting and donating to Animal Shelters, Humane Societies and Pet Rescue.

April Fool’s Day Podacst

First up, actress, author and activist, Annabelle Gurwitch who insists in her new book, I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50 that clocking in at half a century is definitely an April Fool’s Joke, for any day of the year.

Los Angeles-based author Antoine Wilson‘s highly rated new book, Panorama City features a fool as the narrator. Antoine talks about his book and  recounts why he felt foolish after playing an April Fool prank on an unsuspecting convenience store clerk. Wilson‘s earlier book, The Interloper, is also highly recommended by Life Elsewhere.
