Books Unbound – Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Part 7

Play

James Joyce was a pioneering writer of modernist fiction and poetry, known for his innovative prose style and complex wordplay. Born in 1882 in Dublin, Joyce left Ireland at the age of twenty to study in Paris. Within months, he started his first novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Published in 1914, A Portrait established Joyce as both an experimental stylist and a pusher of boundaries who questioned religious and nationalist orthodoxy.

A Portrait was received as a bold achievement by most of Joyce’s literary peers, but some critics dismissed its realism as a dirty obsession with sex and sewage. These controversies were soon eclipsed by Joyce’s monumental Ulysses. Today regarded as the definitive modernist novel in English, Ulysses was officially banned as obscene in both Britain and the United States, earning Joyce a perennial place among literary masters whose works were suppressed.

Interchange – The Best of Andy Mahler: Annemarie Mahler

Play

During the month of  July our News Department programming will consist of a “Best Of ” series as we direct and attend our first ever WFHB News Summit.  Our “Best of Interchange” highlights programs by host Andy Mahler, the recipient of the 2009 WFHB Legacy Award. In the first of these programs Andy interviews his mother, the artist Annemarie Mahler.

Annemarie (Ettinger) Mahler was born in Vienna, Austria in April of 1926. She eventually wound up in Bloomington but spent time in a Dutch orphanage, New York City, Berkeley, Dallas, and Madison, Wisconsin (and many other places) along the way. At Berkeley, she met and married a young biochemist named Henry Mahler, also born in Vienna. Incredibly, they had gone to the same elementary school yet had never met. They had three children, one of whom asks her about her life, love, her art, and anything else you might ask your own mother about on a live call-in radio program.

So tune in to Interchange to hear voices from the past as we prepare for our future. You’ll hear four great shows from our past. There are hundreds more to choose from. Get thee to the Interchange Archives and set to downloading!

Future show guests are:

July 15: Dwight Worker

July 22: Maurice Manning

July 29: Mick Harrison
