EPISODE 21 - POETRY

BY LOUISE GLÜCK

It is the astonishment of Louise Glück's poetry that it resists collection.  She invented a form to accommodate this need, the book-length sequence of poems, like a landscape seen from above, a novel with lacunae opening onto the unspeakable. From the outset ("Come here / Come here, little one"), Gluck's voice has addressed us with deceptive simplicity, the poems in lines so clear we "do not see the intervening fathoms."

EPISODE 22 - SHUGGIE BAIN

BY DOUGLAS STUART

Shuggie Bain is the unforgettable story of young Hugh “Shuggie” Bain, a sweet and lonely boy who spends his 1980s childhood in run-down public housing in Glasgow, Scotland. A heartbreaking story of addiction, sexuality, and love, Shuggie Bain is an epic portrayal of a working-class family that is rarely seen in fiction. Recalling the work of Édouard Louis, Alan Hollinghurst, Frank McCourt, and Hanya Yanagihara, it is a blistering debut by a brilliant novelist who has a powerful and important story to tell.

EPISODE 23 - AT NIGHT ALL BLOOD IS BLACK
BY DAVID DIOP

Alfa Ndiaye is a Senegalese man who, never before having left his village, finds himself fighting as a so-called “Chocolat” soldier with the French army during World War I.  Unable to commit [a] mercy killing, madness creeps into Alfa’s mind as he comes to see this refusal as a cruel moment of cowardice. Blending oral storytelling traditions with the gritty, day-to-day, journalistic horror of life in the trenches, David Diop's 'At Night All Blood is Black' is a dazzling tale of a man’s descent.
