PERSPECTIVES: "Astonish Me"

Credit --Random House

In the world of ballet, an American dancer helps a Russian ballet star to defect in 1975. That is the premise to "Astonish Me," a novel written by Maggie Shipstead. It began as a short story, and as Louie Saenz digs deeper into the story, the listener is drawn into a world of intrigue, immigration and a backstage look into the world of ballet. Ms. Shipstead is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and has collected the Dylan Thomas Prize for her writing. The book is available through Amazon http://amazon.com, Barnes and Noble http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/astonish-me-maggie-shipstead/1116055916?ean=9780307962904 and through Random House http://www.randomhouse.com/book/224499/astonish-me-by-maggie-shipstead

WORDS ON A WIRE: Mary Szybist

  Daniel & guest co-host Nancy Lechuga talk with Mary Szybist, author of Incarnadine, the winner of the 2013 National Book Award for Poetry.  Mary describes Incarnadine as a "religious book for nonbelievers."  She explains why the Annunciation plays such a dominant role in her book, and why "visual poetry" (imagine a poem about an apple written in the shape of an apple), though often seen as gimmicky, was a risk she chose to take for a few of the poems in Incarnadine.  http://maryszybist.net/

Today's Poem of the Week is "Night Shifts at the Group Home" read by Mary Szybist.  It comes from her award-winning collection, Incarnadine.

For today's Poetic License, Nancy Lechuga reads a love letter to humanity.
