Shelf Life with Bif Naked

The new CBC Television documentary 'More than Skin Deep' tells the success story of singer/songwriter Bif Naked, who beat the odds to become a Juno-winning, top-selling Canadian musician.

But when Bif stopped by the studio for a chat with guest host Margaret Gallagher, they took a different approach to exploring Bif's life.

Bif Naked is the latest participant in our regular feature, 'Shelf Life.' She talked to Margaret about the books that made her who she is. You can hear that conversation this Saturday at 8:45 am. You can see 'More than Skin Deep' on CBC Television at 9 pm on Saturday. 

Here are Bif's choices: 

Favourite childhood book: The Merck Manual 
Book she'd give to her young adult self: "The Whole Bloody Bird" by Irving Layton 
Book she likes to lend: "The Verbally Abusive Relationship" by Patricia Evans 
Book that changed her Life: "Survival In Auschwitz" by Primo Levi 
Guilty pleasure: anything by Anais Nin
