Four Invisible authors are descending on Picton to read from + talk about their latest books!
Gillian Wigmore with her debut novel, GLORY, which is part punk rock, part old-time country ballad, and part love letter to strong women.
Jeremy Hanson-Finger with his debut novel, DEATH AND THE INTERN, the great anesthesiology-murder-myst
ery set in the Ottawa Civic Hospital.
E Martin Nolan with his debut poetry collection, STILL POINT, about Hurricane Katrina, the deconstruction of Detroit, the financial crisis of 2008, and the BP Gulf oil spill.
Marcus McCann with his third poetry collection, SHUT UP SLOW DOWN LET GO BREATHE, a killer response to overwork, anxiety, and overstimulation.
Dan Twerdochlib reviews Death and the Intern for the Winnipeg Review:
Jeremy Hanson-Finger’s new work is clever and engaging. Janwar’s aptitude as a sleuth is supported by witty observations, while comprehensive run-throughs of his thought processes are relatable for anyone who grapples with anxiety or social awkwardness. Janwar is endearing, plagued with human flaws in spite of his academic successes and medical proficiency. His supporting cast is fleshed out enough to be identifiable while remaining inscrutable enough to leave both Janwar and the reader unsure who can be trusted.
All Lit Up put together a four-part series on Death and the Intern:
- Introduction and interview with publisher Leigh Nash
- All Lit Up team discussion
- Interview with yours truly
- Further reading (forthcoming)
From the interview:
JHF: I spent a lot of time walking around Koreatown (I lived with Andrew Battershill in Toronto at the time, while he was also working on his first novel, Pillow) trying to solve plot problems I’d never had to consider before, instead of just getting jacked up on coffee and vomiting uncomfortable moments from my past through a filter to try to make it more universal, which was basically my writing process before.
