Join our host, Susan Johnston, for a lively conversation with three authors whose fiction tackles some of life’s toughest obstacles without skimping on the humour. 

 

Lump , the latest novel by Nathan Whitlock, spotlights Cat, who finds out that she is pregnant, that a lump in her breast is the worst thing it could be, and that her husband has done something unforgivably repulsive, and responds by running away from her marriage and her life. 

 

Pebble & Dove by CBC Literary Prize-winner Amy Jones , is the story of a family falling apart, only to be brought back together again by an unlikely champion—a 1,000-pound aquatic mammal named Pebble.

 

A New Season, the latest by beloved and bestselling author Terry Fallis is a thoughtful exploration of aging, loss, family, friendship, and love, all told with his trademark humour and heart. Full of sincerity and warmth, it suggests that sometimes, making a change in your life can save your life.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
