The Podcasts

If you're hooked on books and tired of squeezing your literary opinions into a tiny little Facebook box, join Carole as she ponders those Little Red Notebooks, unleashed by the library all over Toronto, so you can pen your faves on real paper -- that's right, and with a real pen. Today's featured story, "Body and Soul," is from Eva Tihanyi's first collection, Truth And Other Fictions, and it takes us through an extraordinary day in the lives of two great twentieth-century women: the anthropologist Mary Leakey and the blues singer Billie Holiday. For lovers of flash-fiction and very short-shorts, listen up for a winning book by the form's virtuoso, Lydia Davis. Visit Carole's website at carolegiangrande.com and follow us on Facebook at Words To Go Podcast.

Join us for a free-for-all as Carole loses her customary cool and blasts away at literary shoplifters, memoir fakes and artsy excuses for stealing work. Rising well above this silliness is our featured reading, an essay in creative non-fiction by Jill Christman (www.jillchristman.com), in which she shares a tender remembrance of a dead dog. Given our concern with fiction and fraud, it's really just a coincidence that the title of our feature review is Truth And Other Fictions, a fine first collection of short stories by Eva Tihanyi. If you've written or read a book you'd like to see reviewed, post it on our Facebook page (WORDS TO GO PODCAST) or go to Carole's website at www.carolegiangrande.com.
