The colours of Garnett

It was sunny and hot on the leafy grounds of Green College, arguably the prettiest spot on Vancouver's UBC campus, when Gale Zoë Garnett read for AuthorsAloud from her novella, Room Tone. Garnett's throaty voice is as rich as her prose, and she gives us two scenes from a work that director Sky Gilbert has called "a chocolate truffle with a heart of gold." Garnett also gives us a lovely Insight into the genesis of her novella. I promise you'll enjoy it. Go have a listen.

And speaking of insights, poet Zach Wells has added one to give us new perspective on his poetry of the far north in Unsettled. It's worth a revisit to Wells' page to hear how he approaches his work.
