Hi! My name is crystal fletcher. If you are new to all about canadian books Welcome! and, if you’re returning Welcome Back! This week’s guest is Bernardine Ann Teràz Stapleton.
Bernardine is an award-winning playwright, whose plays are produced nationally and internationally. She has also written four books, short fiction and is performer of unique distinction. She has served as writer in residence at Memorial University, as playwright in residence with several national companies, and as artistic director of theatre festivals.
We discussed love, life which was published by Breakwater Books.
Do you love life? In this hilarious frolic through the hills of Italy, our heroine discovers the past is never really gone: it runs beside us our entire lives, just waiting to bite us in the arse. love, life is a made-up true fable about coming out, going back in, getting fat, Italian food, and stalking the Piazzo Bernardini.
It’s a haunting love story, transcending decades, countries, and heartbreak. A Newfoundlander in Italy offers the humour, optimism, and romantic yearning the world needs now.
