Retired CBC journalist Azzo Rezori has lived a colourful life through several countries and career changes.

All that time, Rezori was writing – poetry, observations, and then professionally as a journalist.   

"As I started meeting people and you start discovering the world through the eyes of a professional observer, I started to write fiction,"  said Rezori.

By the time he retired from the CBC in 2016, Rezori said he had a "mountain" of material, and he thought, 'Well, maybe I should just put it together.'  

Hear Azzo Rezori talk with Weekend AM's Heather Barrett about his debut collection of short fiction, Ben Tucker's Truck and Other Stories, from Boulder Publications.
