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:

From Sophie Legrand: Q & A with Katherine Govier

I think landscape forms character. The people I write about are formed by a particular landscape. Maybe it’s harsh, maybe it’s dangerous, it affects what they are and who they are. I like to go and place myself in those landscapes.

Hello, out there: Fun with statistics -- with a bow to the photographers

Amazed to discover there are people, or at least computers, in 40 countries checking out this salon, and can even correlate these visitors with what I posted on any given day. Peak time to read salon posts is lunchtime, between 12 and 2 p.m. And the number of visitors spiked on June 13th when I announced the publishing company.
