This interview on CBC’s amazing flagship book show, The Next Chapter, is actually the first long interview I did on The Devil You Know. We taped it back in December — on my birthday! — and it was old school radio, where I went into the studio and put on the headphones and everything. Shelagh Rogers is the most fun lady in CanLit, and she’s always a pleasure to talk to. Listen to the whole interview here.
Last post for a Friday evening — what a whirlwind this day has been. Two great reviews and a short interview for you — Stacey May Fowles starts off her new column in the Globe and Mail with this fantastic review of The Devil You Know. ICYMI earlier, here’s Sarah Weinman’s awesome National Post review. And a quickie interview I did with Mike Heffernan for Atlantic Books Today. Tomorrow, let’s all sleep in, okay?
A quick video we shot here in St. John’s for The Devil You Know
‘s American publisher, Simon & Schuster. A walk-through on what it was like to grow up in Toronto in the 1980s and 90s, a time that was deeply coloured by crimes later attributed to Paul Bernardo; why women read true crime; and why talking about it is more relevant than ever.
