I went to Neil Smith's book launch for "Boo" at Type Books in Toronto on Monday. If it sounds like I'm bragging, it's because I am. I felt damn lucky to be there, and surrounded by so many other wonderful writers too.
I've seen Neil interviewed several times (most recently for a master class in Sarah Selecky's Intensive) and I can't get over how unflinchingly sweet he is. That sweetness really pops and sparkles in his writing, which makes me all the more thrilled to spend some time in Oliver Dalrymple's head.
