Listen to The Four Seasons of Mavis GallantMavis Gallant
written dozens of dazzling, sardonic, heart-breaking short stories. She
is acknowledged as a master of the short-story and has been showered
with honours. Yet she is not well known in her home country - Canada.
Now in her 90th year, she still lives in the same small Parisian
apartment she moved into almost 50 years ago. Rome-based writer and
journalist Megan Williams
spent almost a week with Gallant in
Paris, recording material for her documentary portrait: "The Four
Seasons of Mavis Gallant."
