Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Durga Chew-Bose, Mary Gaitskill
Moderator: John Freeman

Two distinct voices from different generations discuss mining the content of their lives in their work. Durga Chew-Bose’s Too Much And Not the Mood takes its title from a line in Virginia Woolf’s A Writer’s Diary and showcases the author’s own brand of essay-meets-prose about identity and culture. Mary Gaitskill’s Somebody with a Little Hammer, the esteemed fiction writer’s first collected work of non-fiction, takes its title from a sentence in Chekhov’s story “Gooseberries.” “At the door of every contented, happy man,” Chekhov wrote, “somebody should stand with a little hammer, constantly tapping, to remind him that unhappy people exist….” Join these sharp and reflective thinkers for provoking discussion on what sets their pens moving, their fingers typing and their minds firing.

Presented by The SFU Writer’s Studio.
