Keith Cadieux with John Calabro, hosted by Warren Cariou.
Warren Cariou grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan and has worked as a construction worker, a technical writer, and a political aide. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Toronto and now teaches Aboriginal Literature at the University of Manitoba. His first book, The Exalted Company of Roadside Martyrs: Two Novellas (Coteau, 1999), garnered rave reviews, and his memoir Lake of the Prairies won the Drainie-Taylor Prize and was nominated for the Charles Taylor prize.
John Calabro's novella, Bellecour, published in 2005 by Guernica Editions, was named by The Globe and Mail's First Fiction reviewer as one of the top 5 books in that category for 2005. LyricalMyrical Press published, in a chapbook, his collection of short stories, Somewhere Else, in 2006. His short stories and essays have appeared in Italian Canadiana, Strange Peregrination, and More Sweet Lemons. The Cousin is his second novella.
Always fascinated by any kind of writing, Keith Cadieux has studied everything from medieval to postcolonial literature, horror and weird fiction, and even narrative in video games, before finally receiving a Master of Arts in creative writing from the University of Manitoba. He lives, works, and writes in Winnipeg. Gaze (Quattro Books, 2010) is his first publication.
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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
