Mavis Gallant's What Is To Be Done? -- the movie!

One of Linda Leith Publishing's fall books is Mavis Gallant's only play, What Is To Be Done? When our friends who run All Lit Up asked for ideas for blog posts, we put together a proposal we hope they'd go for in the "Character Study" category, imagining the play as a movie and having fun casting it. This all was Carmelita McGrath's work, and she packed it off last week. So now look what they've done. Those brilliant women have not only used the post, but have included a movie poster for it, with an image of Joe Stalin a cast to die for:

Q & A with novelist Phillip Ernest, part I

Phillip Ernest is a Canadian writer with an extraordinary personal history, as even the briefest version of his bio suggests: Born in 1970, Phillip Ernest grew up in New Liskeard, Ontario. Fleeing home at fifteen, he lived on Toronto’s skid row until he was twenty-eight. He learned Sanskrit from the book Teach Yourself Sanskrit, and later earned a BA in South Asian Studies from the University of Toronto and a PhD in Sanskrit from Cambridge University. The Vetala (LLP, 2018) is his first novel. This is Part I of a two-part interview. Part II is here.

From Yan Liang: Q & A with Norwegian Wood director Tran Anh Hung

"I am a guy who is Vietnamese, living in France, making a Japanese movie. But Vietnamese culture is really deep inside me. Let’s say I enjoy watching Vietnamese women more than others. It’s something like that. I feel that I am a different man when I am in Vietnam compared with France. I feel that I’m not living my life fully in France, I feel as though my life is in suspension. It is not something I dislike, that’s just how it is."

From Patrick Coleman: Les Boys of October

Quebec novelist Louis Hamelin is a talented writer with a genuine passion for his cause, but his new book La Constellation du lynx is remarkable as much for what it leaves out as for what it includes.
