"some of the freshest and most whimsical English ever contained between covers"
Review: Gary Barwin’s Yiddish for Pirates is unlike anything else you’ll read this year.
The book received another review today, also, this one from the Winnipeg Free Press. Here is that one.
And finally for today, the writer/critic Jeanie MacFarlane has this great blog where she writes about things to do with the neighbourhood that we both live in, as well as about Hamilton, and lately, some amazing memoir-like writing.
She recently asked me to add to her series "Where I Write" where she asks other writers to answer that question. I guess I should have cleaned up my desk, but I wrote this piece in answer, speaking about our neighbourhood, city, and even, Facebook as a place where writing happens. Thanks for the opportunity, Jeanie. (And actually, I DID clean up my desk & yeah, I know...)
