Beauchemin and Preston

The two latest readings on AuthorsAloud come from very different writers, although they happen to focus on a similar subject: womanly passion.

Racheal Preston, a Hamilton writer (soon to be moving to the west coast, lucky Racheal) sat down in her dining room and served up a rather steamy passage from her second novel, The Wind Seller.

Quebec's hugely popular Yves Beauchemin, meanwhile, offers a reading from The Years of Fire that features a young woman in the throes of a more chaste kind of desire. (Thanks to Susan Johnston from CKCU for the recording.)

And stay tuned for more interesting developments from AuthorsAloud — a new feature I think you'll enjoy.
