Vancouver Writers Fest

43. Wise Guys

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents


Moderator: Jared Bland

Join three award-winning novelists at the height of their wit as they delve into the craft of laugh-inducing writing, often involving absurdist plots, pithy dialogue, intricate wordplay… and the ruthless self-editing required to ensure every punchline hits. Randy Boyagoda is respected by readers and critics alike for his examination of religion, immigration and politics with lyrical liveliness, as showcased in his latest, “richly funny” work, Original Prin. Patrick deWitt’s caper, French Exit, involves a cat inhabited by the spirit of a deceased loved one, living with a mother and son trying to escape scandal on the Upper East Side. Gary Shteyngart’s Lake Success also shares how the other (dysfunctional) half live, with a searing examination of a hedge fund manager’s meltdown. It’s a laughing matter.
