Gail Bowen -- Night Table Recommendations

Gail Bowen will be in our Winnipeg bookstore, Saturday May 8, 2:00 pm.

Gail Bowen -- Night Table Recommendations

For over thirty years, I led three lives: I was first, a wife, parent and grandparent; second, an academic, and third, a writer. By the time I'd finished with Walter, the Farting Dog (a book which, as the owner of a farting dog, I highly recommend); reviewed whatever was new, hot and student-friendly in Canadian lit and met my own writing deadlines, I didn't have much time to read the way I read when I was a kid - with passion and without plan.

Two years ago, I retired from university teaching. Since then, I've been making up for lost time. Here are some books that I've read and loved within the last month.
