    Clive Oseman and Nayma Chamchoun (Spoken Label, July 2024)

    Clive Oseman and Nayma Chamchoun (Spoken Label, July 2024)

    Special Spoken Label (Spoken Word) Podcast today features Clive Oseman and Nayma Chamchoun both returning to read extracts from both of their recently released books.

    The books are described as follows:


    "Clive Oseman's Musical Hamsters and much bigger issues is here to blow your mind and tickle your funny bone with a heavy dose of absurdity. This isn't just another book; It's a wild, unpredictable ride.
    Oseman takes the mundane and flips it on its head, spinning tales where musical hamsters share the stage with razor-sharp social commentary. Imagine your toothpaste could cure the flu or your reincarnated self turns out to be Attila the Hun- because why not? In this world anything goes.


    Dive into stories about accidentally brushing your teet with haemorroid cream, or finding God hiding in your airing cupboard reminiscing about the good old days. Oseman's wit slices through the bullshit, exposing the hilarity in everyday disasters and existential ponderings alike. This collection isn't just about laughs- though you'll find plenty of those- it's about seeing the absurd in the ordinary and laughing at the chaos of it all"

    *




    "SAGING NOT AGEING" by N. Chamchoun is a poetic journey through the complexities of existence, exploring the tapestry of life's experiences with lyrical grace and profound insight.In this captivating collection, Chamchoun invites readers to delve into the depths of identity, cultural heritage, and the passage of time. Through vivid imagery and evocative storytelling, she navigates the intricate landscapes of memory, love, and loss, painting a portrait of resilience and wisdom.From the vibrant streets of London to the sun-kissed shores of Morocco, Chamchoun's words resonate with authenticity and raw emotion, inviting readers to embrace the beauty of impermanence and the power of self-discovery. "SAGING NOT AGEING" is a testament to the enduring spirit of the soul, celebrating the richness of life's journey and the timeless wisdom found within.
