    Sold Out in New York

    Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word and sell out the show at the legendary Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City. A fabulous night!

    What writing is and what it means, in the most eloquent words imaginable.

    Confessions in New York City

    I’m delighted to be performing at the legendary Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village in November. Cornelia Street is where Eve Ensler premiered The Vagina Monologues, Suzanne Vega got her start, where Oliver Sachs would do readings, and the Monty Python boys occasionally perform, so I am tickled at the prospect of spending next Friday the 13th on that stage. Please join me!

    Reservations are essential: 212-989-9319.

    The GGs

    I am honoured to have been one of the jurors for this year’s Governor General’s Literary Awards. Congratulations to all of the books and authors on the shortlists!

    There were about 185 books under consideration in the Non-Fiction category, and I spent much of the summer in a rocking chair reading biographies, histories, memoirs, essay collections, scientific enquiries, technological explorations, political treatises, travel literature, and books that didn’t fit into any category at all. The non-fiction prize is not so much about comparing apples to oranges as it is pears to bicycles.

    The process of selection was by turns fascinating and excruciating, and while I am thrilled for our finalists, I cannot help but feel a bit heartbroken for the books that would have been featured and celebrated on a longlist were this prize to include one.

    The names of the jurors for this prize are kept confidential (until the day the shortlists are announced), so when people would ask what I was up to this summer, I was required to be vague. “Oh, just doing a bit of reading,” I’d say, the stack of books beside me bursting with sticky notes that I would occasionally shield with my hand.

    “I wish I were a writer,” a neighbour commented, eyeing the books, the rocking chair, my pot of tea. “It looks so relaxing.”
