In this 25-minute interview Alex Samur chats with George Fetherling about his latest novel Walt Whitman's Secret and the impact the American poet had on Canadians.
George Fetherling, the "iconic Canadian poet, writer and editor" (Globe and Mail), has been called "a mercurial, liberal intelligence…the kind of which English Canada has too short a supply" (Montreal Gazette). His 50 books include fiction, memoir, travel narrative and cultural commentary. He lives in Vancouver and Toronto. His column on books appears on rabble.ca.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
