Today’s show features a lengthy and fascinating interview with poet Patrick Lane. Words like “pre-eminent” and “distinguished” always seem a bit fussy to me, but they apply to Lane, who has been awarded the Governor General’s Award for Poetry, the Canadian Authors Association Award, the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence and three National Magazine Awards. He didn’t come to talk about poetry, though. Instead we talk about his fantastic new novel, Deep River Night.
Hope you dig.
