Episode 2: This is the Present Me - Rawi Hage's DeNiro's Game
In this episode, Linda begins the series on Quebec-based English-language writers by focusing on one of her personal favourites: Rawi Hage's DeNiro's Game (with reference to two of his other novels). The "Take-away" section briefly recommends Megan Gail Coles's Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward's Gun Club--while promising to look at other East-Coast writers in Canada in the future, including Alistair MacLeod, Michael Crummey, Lisa Moore, Donna Morrissey, and Michael Winter.
