A show about books and literature. Every week we interview authors, booksellers, publishers, bloggers, and more. Based in Canada.
GET LIT E201 with DENNIS BOCK
Hope everyone out there is doing well! Today’s show features author Dennis Bock. His new novel, The Good German, was released this month. Margaret Atwood described it as “A cunning, twisted, compelling tale of deeply unexpected consequences.” I can’t describe it better than that! Enjoy the show.
GET LIT E200 with DARRELL FOX
I’m not entirely sure how this happened, but we are on episode 200!
It’s fitting that we have something a little different this week. It’s not a novel or a non-fiction book or a chapbook or a poetry collection. It’s Forever Terry: A Legacy in Letters, a collection of letters celebrating the life, dedication and heroism of Terry Fox, on the 40th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope. I was privileged to speak with his brother, Darrell Fox, who acted as editor on this unique book. All proceeds from the book go to support the Terry Fox Foundation. This year’s Terry Fox Run is, like most things these days, virtual. If you’re listening on or before the 20th of September, 2020, you can go here to support or find out more.
GET LIT E199 with MARK SAMPSON
Welcome to the autumn, folks! Hope it hasn’t been too bad where you are (the week has been grey here, which…isn’t…helpful?)
Today’s guest is author Mark Sampson. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Mark (however slightly) and it was fun to talk to him again on Get Lit. His novel, All The Animals On Earth, is available now from the good folks at Wolsak & Wynn. Enjoy!
GET LIT E198 Jeff Rubin Sept 3
Today’s guest is Jeff Rubin, former economist and best-selling author. We talk about his latest, The Expendables: How The Middle Class Got Screwed By Globalization. Enjoy!
GET LIT E05 JOWITA BYDLOWSKA
Jowita Bydlowska gained fame and a bit of notoriety with her memoir Drunk Mom. Her hilarious (yet also pointed and critical) novel, Guy, is available through Hamilton’s Wolsak and Wynn!
GET LIT E04 with NOELLE ALLEN
If you’re doing a Hamilton-based literary show/podcast, you have to talk to Noelle Allen. Wolsak and Wynn is the city’s premiere independent publisher and it was a pleasure to talk to Noelle about the house. There's also a reading from David Lee on this one. This show's from the early times back in Dec 2016!
