Hey everyone! For the first time in 322 episodes…technology (or my use of it?) worked against me. My original interview with author Kai Thomas was lost! Vanished. Like it never was. Embarrassing. Kai, however, was more than accommodating so we did it again. And it’s even better! Join us as we talk about his novel In The Upper Country.
Hey folks! This week we talk with Hamilton-based author Liz Worth. Music fans might have read her book Treat Me Like Dirt: An Oral History of Punk In Toronto and Beyond 1977 – 1981. Fun fact, the title is from an old Simply Saucer song, and if you don’t know Simply Saucer, well, read my National Magazine Award-nominated article! (for a defunct magazine…but the text lives on here).
But back to Liz! Her new book is a literary horror novel called The Mouth Is A Coven and it’s excellent. Check it out if you can.
Hey all! Today’s show requires a tiny bit more attention as most of what I say is kind of quiet. That’s the downfall of doing an interview in an uncontrolled environment (in this case, The Cannon on Ottawa Street).
The interview is great, though, because it’s one of those where I get to combine Get Lit with a lifetime of music journalism. I chat with Rollie Pemberton – aka musician Cadence Weapon – about his book, Bedroom Rapper. Check it out.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone out there. Hope the holidays were good to you.
Quick book news: My novel, River, Diverted, is now available where fine ebooks are sold!
The first GET LIT of 2023 features author (and Ween fan) A.G. Pasquella. We discuss his latest, Welcome to the Weird America. Hope you enjoy.
Hi folks! This week we speak with author Rebecca Campbell about her book Arboreality. Check it out!
GET LIT first aired exactly 6 years ago! Nov 24, 2016. My 47th birthday!
We celebrate this week talking to two great poets – John Wall Barger and David Ly. When I launched River, Diverted, both came to read at the event and it was wonderful. Check out their latest releases – John’s Smog Mother and David’s Dream of Me As Water
