Episode One of Montreal by Words which looks at the historical novel, The Goodtime Girl, by Montreal writer, Tess Fragoulis. We also talk to Vancouver writer, Peter Tupper about his piece from the spring 2012 edition of Maisonneuve Magazine. The piece considers the life of Maria Monk and the shocking tale she told about the depraved life behind the walls of a 19th century Montreal convent.
In the meantime, I am off to Europe for 10 days, visiting Paris, Munich and ending~up in Berlin to see events and meet with people at the International Literary Festival in Berlin. I will try blogging from the road so stay tuned.
