Walt Whitman's Secret
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.

The latest -- and greatest -- volume of the much loved Best of rabble.ca book series is here, hot off the presses!
In what has become an annual tradition, this third "best of" is a pocket-sized reader featuring the best stories in the last year from rabble's news and features section. Highlights include interviews with rabble rousers and thinkers like Tariq Ali, George Galloway and Denis Rancourt; stories of silenced dissent -- many that were donated by activists doing double-duty to both organize and cover events, protests and struggle underreported or ignored entirely by the mainstream press.
