Franßen zu Tim Parks "Stille"

Der Literaturpodcast der vergessenen Bücher

Literaturpodcast der vergessenen BücherDass Fernsehjournalisten wegen der unterschiedlichsten Vergehen plötzlich ihr Ausscheiden aus dem Sender bekanntgeben, ist in letzter Zeit fast gang und gäbe. Sie gehen wie Harold Cleaver in Tim Parks Roman "Stille" davon aus, allein wegen ihrer Stellung, der Meriten, die sich über die Jahre verdient haben, unantastbar zu sein. Seit dreißig Jahren lebt Cleaver mit einer Frau ohne Trauschein und vier Kinder zusammen und leistet sich eine Affäre nach der anderen. www.wolfgangfranßen.de

Novelist Tim Parks on Pelvic Pain to Inner Peace

In Your Pants with Dr. Susie G

What happened when British author Tim Parks wrote down his personal experience with pelvic pain? A major US publisher said nobody wants to read about prostate and bladder concerns. They were wrong: Teach Us to Sit Still by Tim Parks was one of the first books I read on male pelvic pain and has empowered others to make their own journey out of pain. Tim shares his own struggles, triumphs, and gems in this episode. He’ll encourage you to drop the worry, be open to new possibilities for what can change pain, and to enjoy the journey out of pain.

Tim Parks - In conversazione con la creatività letteraria - Festival della Mente 2013

Festival della Mente

«Amo il nuovo Franzen, bellissimo». «A me sembra banale, non sono riuscito a finirlo». Perché le persone, anche le più preparate, non sono d’accordo sulla letteratura? Perché ci può affascinare anche un romanzo scritto male, mentre viceversa uno scritto benissimo ci può lasciare indifferenti? Davvero dobbiamo dire che è solo una questione di gusto? Tim Parks offre una risposta a queste e altre domande, considerando il ruolo della creatività nella vita dello scrittore. Il romanzo non è un oggetto estetico staccato da chi lo crea, ma fa parte di una strategia di vita, nasconde un dilemma, una polemica. Si incrocia con la vita dei lettori in modi e con effetti diversi a seconda delle circostanze personali. Con riferimento ai grandi scrittori della letteratura europea, Parks propone un modo nuovo e intrigante per pensare al rapporto tra un'opera, la nostra vita e quella di chi l’ha scritta.

Teaching Us to Sit Still with Tim Parks

The Sword Guy Podcast

The Sword Guy Podcast, episode 42 Tim Parks is a prolific novelist, non-fiction writer and translator and perhaps most importantly from my perspective, he wrote a fantastic memoir on getting into meditation, called Teach us to Sit Still. Those of you that train with me know that meditation is one of the core parts of my practise and in this episode Tim explains the circumstances that led to him going to his first meditation retreat, how it changes people, and how he does it. Tim has lived in Italy for many years, and we also talk about translating texts and about horribly illegible Renaissance handwriting. Discussing his book, Medici Money, leads us into a fascinating digression about the meaning and morality of money.
