  • 这期节目主播和Richard介绍我们是如何为一个面积很有限的小书店选书的。这期节目依然适用慢速、简单英文录制,下面是我们的录音稿文字,是通过 otter.ai 整理,希望对大家有所帮助。


    Yifan 

    Did you listen to the last episode, your first podcast? 


    Richard 

    Once I could bet to hear myself recorded?


    Yifan 

    How many times?


    Richard 

    Once? All right, did you show this to your parents? Nope. Your girlfriend? Nobody? I don't think, Oh, actually, no, my girlfriend sent the culture potato podcast link to one of her friends. Just to tell him about, oh, we're doing this bookshop and I'm doing you know, we're doing this bookshop together. And this is a guy who's like, an I was obsessed, well obsessed with all sorts of things. But when she knew him, when the window in the living together, he was obsessed with learning Mandarin. So she said, Oh, here's a podcast for you. It's Richard's friends podcast. And then she probably said the list and maybe further down he saw, you might have seen because you did two more episodes to three more episodes since. So he might have noticed that one. Okay, I don't know if he went there.


    Yifan 

    Okay, so this week, we want to talk about our book choices, you know, as a bookshop, how we choose books. But before we get into all that, can you talk about perhaps the most memorable book you read in 2020? Well,


    the book I've chosen for this is probably it will be crashed by Adam Tooze, which is a book about the financial crisis of 2008. And it actually came out in 2018, as a 10 year anniversary, but I finally read it during lockdown. He's a professor of financial history. So there's a lot of data, a lot of material, yet it reads like a thriller.


    So it's heading to a Netflix.


    Yeah, it could, it could head to Netflix. But I'm thinking it also, didn't you read? too big to fail? Yes, I did. When it came out, and maybe it's like that as well. Although, because then that isn't that supposed to be super readable and reads like a thriller and so forth? and Netflix material, potentially?


    Yeah. Is that that's even HBO material? I would say.


    Yeah. So yeah, that probably finally getting around to reading that, from one year from one economic crisis to a health crisis.


    And what is the conclusion? Has anything changed? In the 10 years? Since?


    I'm not sure, really, there's a bit of optimism, but I wouldn't hold my breath.


    Okay. But personally, in the last 10 years, you know, one of the big actors in the 2008 financial crisis is Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan. And over the last 10 odd years, I have seen a big transformation in his attitude and to a certain extent, reputation. He has embraced at least superficially. A lot of the new ideas that's that was fermenting in the business world. Yeah. The moving away from maximising shareholder value to to more of a socialist outlook, to the extent that it is possible that, you know, the care for society for employees. I don't know, does the book talk about this?


    Richard 

    No, no, no, no, not not really less of a thing.


    Yifan 

    So even if England is still in full lockdown mode, however, in the background, we are busying you know, compiling lists of books who are going to order and to to fill our shelves. So as the general manager, Richard, can you talk about how you are approaching this, how we are picking our books and how we are presenting it to them to our customers?


    Richard 

    Sure, looking at the fact that we're somewhat constricted by space, and we obviously can't stock every single book that's out there and buy every single genre, like you would in a big bookshop with obviously selecting what we like, but also books that people think are relevant, whether they're classic works of literature, or authoritative works of nonfiction. And some of these recommendations, we're also taking from what we've read in reviews or whether it's from people discussing books in science. on social media, or on podcasts, or even books that public figures recommend.


    Yifan 

    So in a way we are mimicking, or were thinking about how most general readers would come across a book, they might have read it in the newspaper or through word of mouth, or, you know, their favourite YouTubers talking about it. That's the that's the idea.


    Richard 

    Yeah. And maybe with a certain emphasis on various influences, who recommend books, whether again, the, their newspapers, or, you know, traditional book reviewers, like the London Review of Books, or the times literary supplement, to YouTubers who review books, or public figures, you publish lists of books, and so forth.


    Yifan 

     Cool. I imagine we might even organise our bookshelves according to these influencers who recommend the books. And I know that for this week's programme you have prepared, for example, book lists that you know, that's right, wait, we are working on? Can you briefly introduce the four book lists?


    Richard 

    So we got two lists by public figures, probably none of them need much introduction. One is Bill Gates, the formerly richest man in the world. The other one is Barack Obama, formerly the American president, who periodically published their lists of books that they've recently read, as it was the end of 2020. They both did a round up and published the list of books for Christmas. So those are those two lists, and then rather differently, we're going to talk about a radio programme start the week, which is a key radio programme or podcast from the BBC, that talks about books or that talks to people who have written books, and introduces the subject matter. And then one final list will be by a YouTuber, who presents and reviews, various works of fiction, which could be considered classics, 20th century classics or even, you know, even cult classic books.


    Yifan 

    What's the name of this YouTuber?


    Richard 

    So yeah, his name is so his YouTube channel is better than food. And he's a man named Clifford Lee Sargent. And he lives he seems to periodically move about America. I think the latest count us in Portland, Oregon.


    Yifan 

    Yeah, so let's dive into the these four very different and hopefully interesting book lists to give our audience that flavour. Let's start with Bill Gates, Bill Gates. I imagine he would. He's a tech guy. And he's, since he left Microsoft. He's running a globally powerful foundation. He's also at the centre of some of the of the most topical conspiracy theories around.


    Richard 

    Yeah,


    Yifan 

    it's it's no laughing matter. But what kind of books has Bill Gates chosen? In 2020?


    Richard 

    Yeah, sure. So he's got five books. They're all nonfiction, all on different topics. But one you could say is, is somewhat related to Black Lives Matter. It's called The New Jim Crow: Mass incarceration in the age of colorblindness by Michelle Alexander. Jim Crow being the the laws the racial segregation laws that used to apply in the American deep south. Another title is range why generalists triumph in a specialised world by David Epstein. Then we got the splendid and the vile, a saga of Churchill family and defiance during the Blitz by Eric Larson, the spy in the traitor, the greatest espionage story of the Cold War by Ben MacIntyre. And then finally, we have breath from salt, a deadly genetic disease, a new era in science and the patients and families who changed medicine by bcl two ready. So these are the five books. So one of them the splendid and the vile of saga of Churchill family and defiance during the Blitz by Eric Larsen, which is set up in 1940s 1942. When London and other cities in Britain were bombed by the German Air Force. I think he ties this into sort of how people experience the Blitz. In a kind of parallel way to how people are experiencing lockdown due to COVID. You know, as he says the the fear and the anxiety they felt, even if probably the Blitz was a lot more frightening than even COVID. Now we got the book about generalists range where generalists triumph in a specialised world, where he argues companies do better off employing people who have more breadth than people, then having too many people focused on a very narrow subject. For instance, I think Roger Federer seems to be the the author's a big example of how he started playing several sports before really becoming a big tennis star. Breath from Salt at a deadly genetic disease, a new era in science and the patients and families who changed medicine. Sorry, the subject matter of this book is a pet project of his in that it's about research into cystic fibrosis, which is something he's been involved in a message of hope, I suppose. Is there any would appeal to you?


    Yifan 

    Not really, no. Not at all, perhaps the Ben MacIntyre book on the spy and the traitor but in a way I would, I would just Google and Wikipedia, you know, the spies name, and read all about it. You know, but one interesting I would say is, I think Bill Gates is a massively respected figure in the tech world and beyond. And he's someone a nerd, turned humanitarian. And sometimes we imagine nerds or people in Silicon Valley to be reading about coding about big trends in the industry. And right, yeah, or about future, right, like about gurus books about the future. But I think really the best minds in tech, like the best minds in business, they really have a very wide range of appetites in, in their reading, and I think this list illustrates that quite well. Yeah. Especially if he's in the business of giving money out to, to solve the world's problems. He needs to understand the world's problems and the context in which they arise. And the underlying mechanisms or just to understand the world better and deeper. And I think this Yeah, I would say it's a it's a good list. Personally. It's not my interest for lockdown reading. Yeah. But but then let's move to a somewhat perhaps different it's a very different person, you know, by no means a nerd. So it's President Obama.


    What What has he been reading?


    Maybe first thing we should say about Obama is that he's now he's got his new book out, which is done very well. And he sees himself as very much a man of a man of letters, somebody who'd like you. He likes his books he's seriously into he's always been into reading a thoughtful person, perhaps a thoughtful person. Yeah. And he looked at his list, we won't go through the whole thing. There are many more titles than Bill Gates. 15, let's say, a mix of fiction and nonfiction. A lot of them I'd say, probably very, for an American president, very American centric, a lot to do the American experience whether it's fictionalised or, or not. So there's a Chinese American perspective story. There's, you know, South Asian American, there's obviously an afro American, that kind of drive. Otherwise, there are more say, more straight non fiction in to do again, with this one. It looks interesting cast, the origins of our discontents. But Isabel Wilkinson Wilkerson's right, where she contracts a sort of social and Rachel describes the social and racial system in America and includes it or uses the caste system in India, as well as Nazi Germany to describe Yeah, sociological and racial differences in America. There's even a debut on here. Fiction Again, I think it's a lustre by Raven leahlani, which I think is add some, some good reviews some high praise about a young Afro American woman in New York again in the midst of all that's going on at the moment, politically. Yeah, there's also a thing about Latino or Latin x Americans. And this is a work of nonfiction as somebody who's surveyed undocumented Americans, which is the title of the book, the undocumented Americans by capital up codenamed Villa a few cents you. Aside from that there's also a book about the twilight of democracy, the failure of politics and the parting of friends by Anna Applebaum.


    I have this book, Anne Applebaum.


    Maybe I miss wrote it. I don't know. We can double check that,


    because she's the famous author wrote about the gulags in Russia. Yeah. And she's like the only conservative columnist in the New York Times for a while I think. All right. I want to pick out something that you mentioned what people call in quotation mark the American experience. Yeah. You know, it's about, for example, they C Pam Zhang, how much of these hills is gold? I know that she's a, she's an immigrant. She's part of an immigrant family from Beijing. But this is a fiction. I think it goes back in history. It's about how a Chinese family during during the Gold Rush, right. That's right. And there are, as you say, that the undocumented Americans. So it's about searching for a better life dealing with the inequalities in America, and about pursuing the American dream, I suppose. Yeah. Considering Obama's political background, and racial background. I'm not criticising Bill Gates. Bill Gates, doesn't talk about maybe these issues are too controversial. I don't know.


    Richard 

    Yeah. What do you have the Michelle Alexander book, and I suppose what I mean, Obama, the other hand doesn't have much science or anything to, you know, in that in that kind of realm. He's also got this the splendid and the vile, the saga of church or family in defiance stream, the Blitz by Erik Larson. So Bill Gates and Obama cross over on that book. Yeah. What was I gonna say? Oh, yeah, there's one book which is set in Hawaii. Right. Yeah. which follows his book about his own upbringing there. And that is sharks in the time of saviours by kawhi and kawhi. Strong Washburn? interesting name. Yeah. kawhi. Sounds like my idea of somebody from Hawaii, but I don't know. Right?


    Yifan 

    Not Japan. Okay.


    Richard 

    Well, yeah, exactly. I'm not sure what else to add, it seems like, you know, a very sort of American presidents list, sort of. Except Now, having said that thinking if Trump Look, look, look nothing like this.


    Yifan 

    I think Trump is reading legal defence for Dummies. How to appeal this court. Anyway. Let's move on. You prepared another two lists that's coming from the podcast, YouTube. Universe, can you shall we start with start the week the you mentioned, it's a BBC programme. Can you talk about what kind of podcasts This is?


    Richard 

    Yes, so this is probably a key per gramme for books on the BBC. I mean, it's every Monday at 9am in the morning, after they've done the whole breakfast news kind of show, hence, it's called start the week. And it's used to be presented by Andrew Marr, and now he rotates with other presenters. He's a journalist himself, and he picks every week. A number of guests who talk about a subject matter or they talk about different subjects matters. And often, most of that, not always, but often they've written a book, which ties in to the subject under discussion. A lot of the time he has academics and journalists, so we're looking at more nonfiction. However, occasionally, he also has fiction writers. Probably the you know, the biggest names that you recently had down Hutch link and Margaret Atwood


    Yifan 

    giving us a weekly programme. So you know, their list is quite long. So even for 2020 we may have dozens of books can you pick out a few that that are quite representative of the kind of issues the programme is interested in? And yeah, I would just add that Andrew Marr made and honourable appearance on cultural potato in our episode talking about a Maoism that was a paid for programme unpacked Maoist Maoism, a global history in that episode, when Andrew Marr was a student, he was a committed communist fanatic. And he wrote during the Cultural Revolution to the Chinese Embassy in London requesting a free case of Mao's little red books to share with his fellow students. Anyway, so yeah, give us some notable books.


    Richard 

    Yeah, yeah, he, for instance, he had a book where they talked about sort of farming and what can we say country? Well, country nature? Yeah, really. And one of the books on there was a book called entangled life by Merlin Sheldrake, and this is about funghi. This band was just talking about the mushrooms, mushrooms, different mushrooms, and what they can teach us. Something else we've had, so maybe more in conjunction with black lives matter. He had the biography of a Haitian revolutionary of the 19th century. Black Spartacus, the life of Toussaint l'ouverture by Sudhir Hazara Singh, and in conversation with olivette hotelli, who's written a book called Africans, Europeans, an untold history. 


    Yifan 

    Interesting I see on the on the list, there's a title called China's good war by Rhino jmeter. What which war is this about? 


    Richard 

    Rana Mitter previously wrote about the second world war again in the Second World War.


    Yifan 

    Oh, I think I know. Yes, yes. This is about how the West often forgets about China


    Richard 

     Ok yeah that's it. China in the global order? That was


    Yifan 

    Yeah. So it seems that this and I see that there's a new translation of the Aeneid. It's in a way quite a European or British list that you know, it is a title called English pastoral that that's the farming book about mushroom. about these, you know, like gardening, artful farming. There's a book is it is there a book by Hitler? And even you know, classic study is like a very British thing as well. Yeah. So start the week strikes me as compared to the other two are definitely more UK. Not I wouldn't say UK centric. But definitely the taste is


    Richard 

    definitely more so than Barack Obama. Yeah, most definitely. You could say yeah, this is what sort of thinking people or you know, educated people in in Britain might be likely to read is a is going to be on here. Yeah,


    Yifan 

    let's go to the last list. This is a YouTuber you mentioned called better than food to the channel is


    Richard 

    the channel is better than food. And by as he says his host, Clifford, US hosts Clifford Lee Sargent. So this I came to having read, I'd been actually somebody had told me sort of a while back George Bataille story of the eye, which I don't know if you've read it.


    Yifan 

    No, I have not read any of his books


    Richard 

    It's very short. When it came out. It was probably a shocking story. shocking thing to write. I found it very intriguing. And I wanted to find out more. And somehow ended up on YouTube and came across this person talking about how he wanted to adapt it into the film, which I thought was completely crazy was bonkers. I don't think you're anywhere with that. But essentially, I found then found his channel. He at least talked about story of the eye and gave me his insights, which I thought were interesting. His premise is that, you know, in our lifetime, how many books is one going to read especially if you just stick to fiction and so He has this measure. Is the book better than food? Oh, I see. Right see one needs food to survive. Yeah. So, so the measure is is the book better than food? So at the end, he might say better than food? Or he might just say better than food? I don't think so. Some of the titles or merps may be more obscured so some of the titles or maybe famous famous either forgotten books or bit more forgotten or not necessarily known in the English speaking world because that's another thing he has for somebody, let's say is an English speaker is all these got a lot of a lot of books on that that are in that he's reading in translation in English. And that's unusual, because you know, the English speaking book world can be quite narrow minded. Always, always think about, you know, when they announced the Nobel Prize for Literature, usually nobody nobody in this country's heard of who who the winner is. Yes, and so I think a lot of these books are kind of you could say 20th century classics maybe some of them you could say a cult classics sort of book that not not necessarily like there's sort of liked by you know people in in the know as it were.


    Yifan 

    Can you give us some examples of these cult classics?


    Richard 

    But you even the George Bataille story I'd say is a good you know, is what is the story about? I think that's a that's another podcast entirely. Let's not go there. In a way you could say the story of the I two best thing to sum it up. I was thinking about it just now. You could say it's like a book form of a Salvador Dali painting. And even you know, you think of like, what's that film? He made? The slicing slicing eyeballs?


    un chien andalou


    Yeah, un chien andalou. Y eah, it ties into that whole kind of milleu. And. Bataille was first part of those surrealists


    Yifan 

    strange and disgusting 


    Richard 

    Yeah, strange and disgusting. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, the things that probably the obvious ones would be things like jack Kerouac on the road. What's it? Blood meridian is Yeah, there's a few Mishima Confessions of a mask. Fight Club. Chuck Palahniuk, they'll probably be like, at least a you know, a recent cult book,


    Yifan 

    which one was that sorry?


    Richard 

    Fight Club Palahniuk, which was turned into that film in what in the late 90s. So a lot of these books as well, they link so he might see a lot more lashonda Moldova, which might? Again, you'd say that cult in the sense that a lot. That's a book that inspired a lot of people on the list, like, say, George Bataille. Yeah, like the most of the surrealists, but might not necessarily be known if you hadn't read these authors or knew much about the surrealist writers. And so he kind of goes up, he goes up the kind of what's it called? The sort of family tree of literature in a way.


    Yifan 

    And


    yeah, I'm just thinking about from, like, you know, when we have his collection in the bookshop, like, Who are they for? And could you say that his list is a pretentious list?


    Yeah, maybe you could say it's a bit pretentious. I think the pretention here is really to just, yeah, to try and read things that actually matter, or they're gonna leave an impression on you. Yeah. And again, they're also the colour aspect is important. Because also, you know, if you want to be part of, you know, of a club as it were of a colorist, and you know, know, what, certain people what books certain people have read, you know, this is a way of, yeah, getting in there. Yeah, I don't know how to sort of explain but meet perhaps the sort of people who are, there are tea because, you know, like, artists who is I like to reference, like, Great authors, or even more obscure authors like this, you know, there's a certain kind of cachet about like, referencing very, very obscure and niche artists of all sorts, whether they're writers or others.


    Yeah, and I would say, you know, this list is isn't arty list potential slash artists in a good way. In that these are authors who are trying who in you know, in their time, they were trying to do new things, and


    you're trying to experimental


    Yeah, they're not in one way or another. Right, a popular novel. I think none of these were We're written thinking, that's write a book to make money.


    Richard 

    Exactly. I mean, some of these writers remain pretty obscure.


    Yifan 

    So that concludes our four lists as examples of, of how we how we pick our books. And the very last item before the end of the programme is, you know, like Word of, is a good word of the month or just to introduce a fun English word to our listeners. Well,


    I just used five minutes ago, is the word bonkers, right? essentially means crazy. And it's spelt


    B o n k e r s.


    Richard 

    There we are. If something's bonkers. It's crazy. It boggles the mind. 


    Yifan 

    And is that the same as bananas? No. 


    Richard 

    That's true. Yeah. Bananas. It's completely bananas.


    Yeah. Yeah.


    Yifan 

    Okay. Two words. bountiful. And bananas. It's bananas. exactly the same as, as the bananas that you eat. I don't know. Why do people think bananas are crazy?


    Richard 

    They usually say going bananas, don't you?


    Yifan 

    Yeah. Why is that? I wonder? Maybe we should find out. Bananas are bonkers. Okay. All righty. That's another interesting word. All righty. All righty. This is the second programme talking about book lists in Hoxton books. Our bookshop is still not open yet. thanks for bearing with us.


    Thank you.


    Okay, Cheers.


    Bye.

    Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve

    https://youtu.be/1lyu1KKwC74


    为了帮助部分听众的理解,下面是 Otter.ai 制作的文字整理。(两人同时说话时错误比较多,但是基本够用!)


    Yifan 0:00

    Welcome to culture potato, a new hope this is a brand new, slow English speaking podcast where my friend Richard and I are going to talk about our brand new project a bookshop in London. Yay, Hi Richard!

    Richard 0:19

    Hello

    Yifan 0:20

    Could you introduce yourself to our listeners, and maybe say one interesting thing about our friendship.

    Richard 0:28

    So Hello, everyone. My name is Richard. I've been a friend of the fans for about 15 years. He described me as bookish because I grew up amongst lots of books. My father's in the book business. I've worked in bookshops, I've worked in publishing companies. I've even worked for my father. And I'm always always wanting to buy books and reading them. So that's roughly why I'm here.

    Yifan 1:05

    And I just want to add until very recently, because we have to work on this bookshop project. Richard had no internet at home.

    Yeah, that's right. Indeed.

    No Internet how hardcore?

    Richard?

    Richard 1:26

    Yeah, sceptical of all the inventions after the book. So if and what's the what's the latest? Or at least how, how is the bookshop looking? How are the how's the the site progressing towards completion?

    Yifan 1:43

    So, I have been in this project, our division of labour or what each of us do is I have been taking charge on the decoration, buildings work of the bookshop, while Richard is preparing on the content and what books to choose.

    So in the last month, I have been working with builders and interior designer on the site, our bookshop is tiny, it's about 25 or 30 at a push maybe 25 square metres somewhere in England, it's probably in square feet have no idea what what that is.

    We currently have strengthened all the walls to make it stronger because we have some hanging bookshops. So we have one bookshelf that's freestanding, and two shelves are hanging so screwed on to the war. So the war needs to be able to bear heavy weight strong. Yeah, yeah. The builders have put plaster on the war now so it's now painted white. But we are going to paint it give it another coat of paint. So we have been choosing paint colours over the last week. I forget what colour we have settled on.

    Richard 3:11

    I think it was called something like ash grey. And what was it?

    Yifan 3:15

    No that's for the floor.

    Richard 3:17

    No. As Gray 's for the wall and for the full floor was a good light

    Cree or something

    Yifan 3:24

    scree

    Richard 3:24

    scree.

    Yifan 3:25

    Okay, so we have a concrete looking floor and we have a bluish I think it's not is it gray to me Yes. blueish wall anyway. Yeah. yet to be done are lights, installing spotlights and a hanging pendant light in the middle. That looks like a book actually. You haven't seen them.

    Richard 3:51

    I've only seen photos. Okay, it was very nice. very tasteful.

    Yifan 3:56

    That's half of our budget

    Richard 3:57

    as as as is to be expected from you.

    Yifan 4:00

    And then I have ordered the checkout machine. So it's like an iPod iPad? No, it's like an iPhone thing where people can swipe their credit card or contactless card and I'm hoping to get alipay and WeChat pay a machine to do that as well because there are a lot of Chinese students in London who may benefit from that or we may benefit from that.

    Richard 4:24

    We may right.

    Yifan 4:27

    What else is to be done? I think the toilet Yeah, we have a small toilet and the toilet needs to be

    Richard 4:34

    very important. Especially with Coronavirus with water. There are no public glues, no public toilets,

    Yifan 4:42

    but maybe we shouldn't say that we have a toilet. It's not a public toilet.

    Richard 4:46

    There's no McDonald's but otherwise we can't.

    Yifan 4:48

    When people ask we have no toilet.

    Richard 4:50

    People ask us, we have no toilets, but we definitely need

    Yifan 4:53

    your listener for culture potato Okay, so this Is our shop our shop is in an in an area called Hoxton. That's h o x to n. Hoxton. That's in East London. So Richard, why don't you you are a West Londoner, tell us about an East London and Hoxton.

    Richard 5:15

    Yeah, I was actually born not very far from the shot but by the time I was four years old, my parents moved west. But yeah, it was the West London is where, you know, typically is thought of more affluent than the east and so forth. So East London, Hoxton, traditionally a working class part of London. Nowadays, like with all these, like a lot of former working class areas in major European cities, they're undergoing a lot of change a lot of what people call gentrification and Hoxton is not immune to that. It's also one thing. It's

    Yifan 5:59

    a pioneer of

    Richard 6:01

    Yeah, could even be considered a pioneer. Definitely. And yeah, probably in London, it would be a pioneer. Of course, in the 90s, late 90s, when Britpop was all the rage, the famous clip, the video clip of the Verves, unfinished sin, no, not unfinished with any, a bittersweet Symphony. Sorry, a bittersweet Symphony by the verb. Were you land that's a band, right? And this singer is walking down Hoxton Street, barging into people. But at least he's not making way for anybody else. He's just walking down in the straight line. Anyway, that's that's a link to that video, I'll post a link I definitely will post a link to the video. And that is Hoxton. And that street probably not changed that much. So just a few more hipster new places. hipster new I don't know. Yeah, they hit the places I don't know. Definitely weren't there when the video was shot. But otherwise, it probably retains a similar feel.

    Yifan 7:09

    There's a very famous British person laying rest nearby our bookshop. Our address is 99 East road about five minutes walk up, say 10 minutes walk at most. We have

    Richard 7:23

    we have the bunhill is it bunhill Cemetery. Yes. Or bunhill fields where William Blake is buried. And is that Daniel Defoe as well?

    Yifan 7:38

    of Treasure Island.

    Richard 7:40

    No he's of Robinson Robinson Crusoe. Yes. Different Island. Yeah. Yeah, and I feel like there's somebody else we're missing out. Anyway, Daniel Defoe, and obviously William Blake will do for for a bookshop.

    Yifan 7:57

    That's where we will be having our sandwiches during lunch

    Richard 8:00

    break. Exactly. That's where we'll be. lunch breaks. Look forward to look forward to at one point so at one point, we you thought of calling or referring to it as the podcast bookshop, can you elucidate

    Yifan 8:20

    it is the date that was my idea. And nobody understood the idea. It was a much misunderstood idea. I might still launch a campaign to to make it our tagline, the podcast bookshop,

    Richard 8:35

    Hoxton books, the podcast bookshop,

    Yifan 8:37

    okay, because I think there is a idea that people who love the internet and social media who stay on Weibo WeChat all the time they don't read books. And books is for bookish people who are you know, who have no internet had home here?

    Richard 8:54

    no internet, no to sceptical of everything that was invented after the book.

    Yifan 8:59

    Yeah. And that concept is very strange to me. Because I have in obviously been the next journalist or somewhat, probably still working in the field that's related to journalism. I love books and social media, because our job is essentially transferring knowledge from books to social media. And in in Chinese, we call this brick carrying, right so a lot of marketing people and journalists writers, their job is essentially book carry a brick carrying, carrying but either from the English speaking world to the Chinese world, or from the book to more popular fields. Yeah. And also, I think podcast is a medium where you really engage with the content like you do with a book. You spend hours on it.

    Richard 9:53

    That's it. It's sort of like an individual.

    Yifan 9:55

    Yes. Yeah. Very private.

    Richard 9:58

    Yeah, private thing. Exactly.

    Yifan 10:00

    And so I think they, they go together. And I take book recommendations from a lot of podcasters. So I thought, you know, why don't we use this as an angle for our book, bookshop? And because you need a unique selling point nowadays? Well, yeah.

    Richard 10:18

    What's the last book you? You read for, or at least the last book you opened that was recommended to you by, by podcast?

    Yifan 10:28

    Um, can I talk about the next one? So the next. The next one is, it's a very, it's a cookbook by Ottolenghi and his collaborator, one of his collaborators

    Richard 10:40

    here. Is is his husband, the Palestinian? Yeah. Was he called cesifo? Sami?

    Yifan 10:47

    No. So it's someone else. Maybe someone I need to meet me, but it's like it's it's about vegetarian cooking and vegetables. Okay. And I heard it on kcrw the goodfood. Bought it yesterday. And I thought, well, Okay, very good. That so that was the next one. previous one. The thing is, since I started the book club project for cultural potatoes, and my nonfiction project, unpack. I have no time to read other. I have no,

    Richard 11:20

    so a lot of projects you've got going on.

    Yifan 11:23

    No, it's just with this A New Hope it's just four because they are financing the bookshop? Yeah, so each each week I do a different thing. That is to say so my podcast listening has decreased the time I spent on podcast. Sure, we have opportunities to recommend other podcasts plenty. The next question I want to ask you is obviously you know, London's bookshops the best So looking at our competitors are not necessarily competitors. tell our listeners or three independent bookshops that you love.

    Richard 12:03

    Okay, so first of all, we're selling starting we'll start with Daunt's that's the most obvious one because they're almost like I mean, they are independent but they're like a mini chain as well because they got quite a few they were four or five bookshops in London, mostly in the West and the North. The the the flagship shop in Marylebone is essentially based on well essentially grew out of a travel bookshop and they still categorise their books by country

    Yifan 12:38

    like a Lonely Planet? travel books or travel literature.

    Richard 12:42

    Well travel literature, so they've Yeah, they do in the sense that under each country, you find guides, like you know, Lonely Planet, etc, you'll have books about the history of that place, and writers from there or when he's in translation, but the major writers from that place, so in a way you'd have History Fiction, and guidebooks or all mixed together by country, if that makes sense.

    Yifan 13:18

    I love Daunt's, but somehow they are the least, they are almost the opposite to the way I would imagine our shop. I don't know why.

    Richard 13:28

    Yes, we're definitely probably wouldn't be doing much by country. I don't know. Unless...,

    Yifan 13:35

    but also they have a very English cottage.

    Richard 13:39

    Yeah, there's something quite Yeah, there's something quite traditional or exactly quite cottagey very English. Maybe what we could say a bit. how likely are you?

    Yifan 13:49

    I like how you said your English your French accent surfaced. Richard is half French

    Richard 14:01

    I'm half French? But um yeah, it feels quite quite

    Yifan 14:07

    safe maybe twee is the

    Richard 14:10

    yeah tweet by twee at an effort Yeah, how how accurate what it's great though it's great if obviously like you know people who come from abroad love going then it's because it's it's very I don't know if pittoresque is the word but

    probably have the most visible tote bag

    Oh, yeah. They've got the they got the whole they got the pioneers they send throughout the world with their tote bags. Yeah. Referencing themselves. Yeah. They you know, people buy the travel books that they get the tote bag, they travel elsewhere. bag.

    Yifan 14:50

    So it's a long standing tradition.

    Richard 14:53

    Exactly. Yeah. Must be.

    Yifan 14:57

    Okay, number two, choice number two

    Richard 14:59

    Probably a bookshop that's not very far from where, from where Hoxton books is, and that's the Broadway bookshop on Broadway market. And that said, I mean, that's a, you know, relatively small shop. But with the space they have, they do very well with filling it with books, or at least books that I would love to read. And there's not much you know, when we talk about separating the wheat from the chaff. I'd say there's not, there isn't much chaff in that bookshop. Um,

    Yifan 15:39

    why is this so many agricultural metaphors in English and separating the sheep from The what?

    Richard 15:49

    The wheat from the chaff?

    Yifan 15:50

    Yeah, but also people say,

    Richard 15:52

    separating sheep and white sheep and black sheep.

    Yifan 15:55

    No man from the sheep. I don't know. Yes, yes.

    Richard 15:59

    Yes. Lamb dressed as mutton.

    Yifan 16:02

    Is that all yours? No, never mind Skinner. Forward, but I would recommend, you know, like, visitors to London to check out Broadway market. It's probably not in any guidebook. And yet, it's probably the most London in a way. I don't know, young London, hipster.

    Richard 16:23

    Young London is very young. Do you want to see

    Yifan 16:26

    how young people in London live

    Richard 16:30

    and get a Broadway market? In a idealised? Yeah.

    Yifan 16:34

    I mean, it's true. There's a lot of self love is definitely a lot of self love.

    Richard 16:40

    Yeah, there's Yeah, they Yeah. Yeah. They're very pleased with themselves. Yes. But definitely the bookshop is great. And the bookshop has been there a while. Yeah, I really don't have a bad word to say about them. Another bookshop I find interesting is in Chelsea, in West London, you know, very affluent area. And that's Sandoe's. Then, like, the ceilings are so low, there's maybe two floors. Yeah, there's two floors, low ceilings, books stacked everywhere. except they're all new books. So you could you know, you imagine that kind of bookshop, imagine selling secondhand books, where they've just have all these secondhand books, and I don't know where to put them. Here. It's all new books. They're all stacked everywhere. Lots of art books. You know, big, big expensive art books that people in Chelsea will buy coffee table books, coffee table books. Yeah, but not too not too frivolous coffee table books like serious coffee table books, okay. And and then they like to you they stack so on their tables, they like stacking books by author. So for instance, you might have like, you might have Philip Roth and all his books are on top of each other on a table. Okay. So different titles they mix them up. So you'd like you unwind the pie or to find the entire oevre the particular writer.

    Yifan 18:14

    So how is Broadway because you mentioned don'ts in their flagship travel shop. Things are organised by country right like the geography department. And then in in Sandoe's, Sanders is is called Sandel's or Sandoe's. Sandoe.

    Richard 18:32

    the with an apostrophe s at the end. Sandoe's?

    Yifan 18:36

    Yeah, they are organised by author.

    Richard 18:40

    Yes. And then but they have a more traditional way of running things by sort of, you know, fiction, and fiction A to Zed, but then when you look on the tables, they'll have like, it's a bit like I'm not saying it's messy. But they can also like, yeah, you might find fit on the shelf and Philip Roth, it might be one or two books, but then if you look on the table, there might be more there. So it's a bit random says maybe a bit random.

    Yifan 19:07

    Yeah, and what about in Broadway, but books,

    Richard 19:10

    Broadway bookshop is oh? Yeah, no, they also like the country thing, where if you look under France, you have find books about France, as well as books by French writers. Yeah, which is how it should have described don't earlier, and how are you going to organise boxing our bookshop?

    So how we're going to organise them? Well, either by service, all sorts of I think there are sorts of all sorts of ways and they might intersect in different ways. So we might have a shelf with books recommended by certain people. Books might also figure in

    so we're talking about Obama's reading list.

    Yeah, so we could talk about Obama's reading list. But that Like, you know, there might be one or two things there that double up with, say, a shelf full of books by people who write for The New Yorker. Yeah. As well as maybe we'd have books on certain topics there might intersect with the book kinda know to do with to do with black lives matter for instance. Okay.

    Yifan 20:20

    No podcast. Sorry. No.

    Richard 20:24

    Yeah, of course. Yeah. podcast. podcasts are your thing the podcasts?

    Yifan 20:29

    Right, so

    Richard 20:30

    yeah, definitely like yeah, for instance. I mean, it start the week is the the obvious one when it comes to at least nonfiction books.

    Yifan 20:38

    Yeah, that's a popular UK BBC Radio Show. That's also a podcast. Yeah. Anyway, right. Okay.

    Richard 20:47

    You've stopped me there.

    Yifan 20:48

    But one night, we might talk about you know, this more in detail in in a future episodes. Yes, exactly. That's

    Richard 20:55

    Yeah, exactly. How are we going to how we're going to categorise and now we're going to shelve everything is by almost recommendations, different products from different places. Yeah, exactly. recommendations, but yeah, from different sources. See how that pans out? How see how how we manage that?

    Yifan 21:17

    Yeah. Okay, more More on that in a future episode. And also, I think our listeners, this is going to be a simple English slow English, a shorter programme that we're hoping to. So in future episodes of A New Hope. One week we might talk about our bookshelves and other week we might talk about our book lists, whatever you want to hear about our Hoxton books, bookshop, let us know and then we'll try to talk about it. And lastly, for today, can you that is Richard recommend a podcast and perhaps in English podcast you like?

    Richard 22:01

    Okay, so thinking about this I'm going to go for a podcast which is completely just different. In fact, maybe a lot of people who are into books or read books are not necessarily interested in, ie football so this is a podcast about English football where these various supporters mostly younger I mean, youngest guys you support different team gather around the television watching a premier league game, but they end up just talking about football so they don't they comment on the game a bit. So last Sunday, it was the North London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, but most of the time they're just Yeah, they're just talking to each other about various things going on in in with football, and it lasts for about three hours or something. You can think you can even catch him on Twitch live but then they also release a podcast

    Yifan 23:07

    that's a highly technical term coming from someone who is not very technical twitch

    Richard 23:11

    twitch yeah twitch I'm yeah, I'm with I'm with the twitch kids, except that to them. My understanding is twitches, just people playing video games. In this case, they're watching football, and they're just reacting to what's going on. Either during the match or, or more widely. And they're the fun bunch. They're their ragtag collection. So different supporters. So there's one guy you know, who support Liverpool and other guys supports Chelsea, then they have a guest on depending on the one of the teams that's playing. And yeah, they they joke around and, and they kind of like kind of people I don't hear about my life. I don't really know many people who support football, even though I live in England. So it's just it's just refreshing. Basically. Okay, so you're up to date with what's going on in world of football.

    Yifan 24:07

    Okay, and very Lastly, Richard before we say goodbye, this month. The new word A New Hope. Okay, this is our finishing segment. tell our listeners a fun English word that they may not know.

    Richard 24:28

    Okay, sure. So we have a word, which is probably the informal to mean food.

    Yifan 24:35

    Like,

    do you want food?

    Richard 24:37

    Like I'm starving? Let's have some grub. grub grub said that spelled GRUB grub? Not sure what the origin is but definitely loads a lot at least London term understood by all have some grasp, but it's also at the If you combine it with the word street grub Street, the grub street refers to aspiring writers, poets trying to make a living in the 19th century. And grub Street was a street not very far from our bookshop, in fact, also close to where William Blake and Daniel differ we mentioned we're buried. So this street no longer exists, but it was around there. And it was just a sort of bohemian place where where writers poets, aspiring journalists

    Yifan 25:44

    lived or so some general term you can say grubstreet to refer to them collectively Yeah, like to

    Richard 25:51

    Yeah, that is a column I think in pro in the satirical magazine Private Eye This is a comment column about sort of the world of journalists and basic facts Yeah. And the the column is called grubstreet. That's too many words hacks.

    Yifan 26:07

    Okay. Let's Let's hit stop and have some takeaway grub, does it even work?

    阿尔泰米西娅・简提列斯基 Artemisia Gentileschi

    Artemisia Gentileschi 是十七世纪的意大利女画家。她的大型回顾展正在伦敦的国家美术馆展出,展览将展出到明年的1月24日。 这是一个万众瞩目的展览,从两年前宣布要做开始,就受到了很多关注, 最主要的一个原因也是因为伦敦国家美术馆196年历史上第一次给女艺术家做的大型展览。 

    她1593年出生, 父亲Orazio Gentileschi 是一名画家,同时也是当时非常著名的画家卡拉瓦乔的好朋友。Artemisia 从小和他父亲学画, 她的绘画当然也深受卡拉瓦乔那种戏剧性和强明暗对比法的影响,她的一生经历传奇, 16岁的时候被父亲的朋友,也是一位画家 Tassi 强奸,Artemisia 的父亲将这位 Tassi 告上法庭,为了证明自己的清白, Artmesia 在法庭上遭受酷刑,同时强调“这都是真的,这都是真的。”最终这位强奸犯被判有罪,被逐放出罗马(但事实是判刑并没有被执行)。Artemsia 之后结婚并搬家到了佛罗伦萨,生育了五个孩子,但只有一个女儿最终成人,和丈夫关系一直不好,并且后半生都和丈夫分开,自己一个人带女儿生活,并曾多年拥有一位情人。

    Artemisia 现在最被大众熟知的作品几乎都和她前半生的经历有很大关系,比如宗教主题中的一些和女性遭遇相关的《朱迪思割下荷罗孚尼的头颅》、《苏珊娜和老人》、《卢克丽霞》等。1616年, 她在佛罗伦萨成名, 受雇于美第奇家族,支持家中生计。同时,她也是佛罗伦萨美术学院接收的第一位女成员。她之后也曾返回到罗马生活,也曾在威尼斯居住过三年,最后在那不勒斯定居至去世。在她四十多岁的时候,也被当时英国皇室的查尔斯一世雇佣到伦敦绘画了一两年的时间,所以和伦敦也有很深的渊源。 

    伦敦国家美术馆为本次展览出版了图录,其中包含了多篇文章,从画家个人经历、绘画技法、私人信件以及女权主义批判等多个角度深入了 Artemisia 的人生与创作。

  • 本期节目我们聊美国剧作家 Tony Kushner 的代表作 Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes。嘉宾是 Gigi 和 方曌。


    以下是 NTLive 版本的官方介绍:


    上世纪八十年代中,美国处于列根的保守政权之下,正经历爱滋病危机。 《天使在美国》正讲述在这种社会背景下,一群纽约客徘徊生与死、爱与性、天堂与地狱之间,挣扎求存、奋斗的故事。


    东尼.库什纳 (Tony Kushner) 的《天使在美国》可谓近几十年来最重要的戏剧之一。此剧共分两部分,总长逾七小时,于1992年至1993年间在伦敦英国国家剧院首演,并赢得普立兹戏剧奖等多项大奖。该剧有趣又感人,尖锐又富有深刻洞见,以充满想象力的方法,探讨爱、痛苦、疾病、死亡、信仰、政治等主题,即使在25年后的今天,仍然发人深省。


    本次复排版的演员阵容鼎盛,荷里活及英国剧界的一线演员纷纷登场。饰演主角普莱尔的安德鲁加菲(Andrew Garfield)曾获奥斯卡最佳演员提名,代表作包括电影《蜘蛛侠:惊世现新》(The Amazing Spider-Man)及《钢锯岭》(Hacksaw Ridge) 。其他主要演员包括主演BBC剧集《宝拉》(Paula)的丹妮斯高弗(Denise Gough),曾演出《星球大战:原力觉醒》(Star Wars: The Force Awakens) 的占士麦卡德(James McArdle),曾演出英国国家剧院《高校男生》(The History Boys)的罗素托维(Russell Tovey),以及演出音乐剧《金牌监制》(The Producers) 和电影《假凤虚凰》(The Birdcage) 的尼芬连恩(Nathan Lane)。


    本剧导演玛丽安.艾略特 (Marianne Elliott) 是奥利花奖及东尼奖双料得主。她为英国国家剧院导演的《深夜小狗神秘习题》(The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) 及《雷霆战驹》(War Horse) 都大获成功。这次,她为我们谱写了一曲感人至深的人性赞歌。

  • 这期节目我们聊日本作家太宰治的「人间失格」,这本写于1948年的小说长期位居日本畅销榜的前十,作者在这篇由三本札记组成的中篇小说叙述了一个自认为是废人的主人公的童年、少年和成年的一些生活片段,和他无法理解他人的苦恼。


    作者介绍

    太宰治(生于1909年6月19日,日本青森县卡纳吉市-1948年6月13日去世,死于东京),小说家,在二战结束时作为当时的文学声音出现。 当传统价值观被抹黑,而年轻一代却空无一物地拒绝了过去的一切时,他那黑暗而苦涩的语调完美地捕捉了战后日本的困惑。
