You Can Hear My Awful Voice

Everyone thinks their voice is awful and I’m “everyone” too so I think my voice is awful. It must be hard for singers. I was on a podcast recently and I talked about my writing, restaurants in Montreal, and my day job. It’s not a must listen or anything, but it’s a surprisingly entertaining 40 […]

En francais, dude

I’m not so ambivalent about reviews now, not with the French version of my book, at least. Because the book is old and the reviews aren’t going to drive me so crazy. And so here’s the first review (that I know of) and it’s good! If not great. And speaking of Attends-moi, I’ll be at […]

More Twitter!

I still get interviewed about Twitter. It’s an odd thing, really, I mean most days Twitter feels like it’s on the outs, but then some big news thing happens, and where do you get your news? That’s right. Twitter. At least I do. (The image above is from someone’s Twitter stream and it’s the best […]

And Then You Hold A New Book In Your Hand

And it feels awesome (literally – the matte finish is silky). It’s odd to hold your own book and to not have read it. But the French version of Waiting for the Man will be published next month (it launches this week) and I’m kind of thrilled by it. Mostly because as a Quebecois the […]

The Me Movie

A few years back, well maybe 18 months back, so somewhere in that netherworld between a few “months” and a few “years” back, a video-journalist (I know! What a world!) from LaPresse+ (the iPad version of Montreal’s LaPresse) did a story on me. One of the major weaknesses of LaPresse+ (and perhaps its only one […]

Waiting for the Man in A Land Down Under

No Aussie jokes here. There are enough in this interview I did with Booktopia, an online store in Australia that is carrying Waiting for the Man. As if I were a local. I did a Q&A and got two bad Australian jokes out of my system. So that’s it. No more. I welcome my Australian […]

Reviews, Mentions and Related Silliness Concerning Waiting for the Man

I’m not going to read reviews for Waiting for the Man. I took this decision to maintain my sanity. To not think about perception, or more to the point, how my work is being perceived. This is not to say I don’t want people to purchase it and consume and it and, yes, love it. […]

Appearance at Ottawa Writers Festival

I’ll be in Ottawa on April 28, reading at the Ottawa Writers Festival with Jonathan Bennett (a fellow ECW author) and the great Miriam Toews. The artistic director of the festival seems to love the book (first in radio and now in print) – though when I meet him I’m going to have to tell […]
