Home Before Dark book jacket

Please help stop Harper's election fraud plan. Become a monthly supporter.

I hardly know what to say about Rosemary Sexton's book, Home Before Dark, and that's a rare gift from an author. It's a rambling, riveting, often trivial diary of her life between 1998 and 2002. Why that span? No particular reason.

Photo credit: Come Worry With Us!

Intuition is an instinct commonly attributed to both motherhood and the artistic process and it's what propelled award-winning director Helene Klodawsky into the world of Montreal musicians Jessica Moss and Efrim Menuck.
