Another Week, Another Andrew
It’s been a banner couple of weeks! Last week I got to chat with the marvelous Andrew Davidson, and last night I met Andrew Pyper at the TINARS launch of The Killing Circle.
It was a great event, and the Gladstone ballroom was packed. Andrew is a funny guy, and not afraid to speak his mind. In conversation with Nathan Whitlock, he talked about the satirical elements of the book (it has a lot of fun with the CanLit scene) and confessed they were much sharper (and lenthier) in the first version of the book. He reminded us that plot is not a dirty word--a book is a lot more entertaining when stuff actually happens!
Do attend a TINARS event some time--they are a fresh, fun alternative to boring readings. Let me know if you need a date!
