Exciting news! Some time ago I sat down for an interview with my old friend , Michael Enright, in the “Sunday Morning” series about neglected classic Canadian books.
This Sunday, March 3 at 11. a.m. , or just after the news, you’ll be able to hear me talking about THE WATCH THAT ENDS THE NIGHT, the great 1959 novel by HUGH MACLENNAN.
As you’ll know from my chapter about Hugh in Stories About Storytellers, I believe that this is his best novel, and I’m delighted to have the chance to persuade CBC listeners to read it….or to read it again! Michael is, of course, a superb interviewer, and I recall being surprised by what he drew out of me, about this book, and about Hugh’s role in creating our own literature.
I’ll be listening with keen interest. I hope you will, too.
