Jessica Grant's book Come, Thou Tortoise is a debut novel, featuring a 300-year-old tortoise named Winnifred. The main character is Audrey, and her point of view is only slightly less strange than the tortoise's. Grant talks with Shelagh about why she likes inhabiting the point of view of odd characters.
Also on the show, Norman Doidge talks about life since his mega-selling book The Brain That Changes Itself hit the shelves and changed how people talk about the brain.

I was listening to Saturday's version of your program, and I heard an interview, at the end, of an author who's greatest fear was her second book, and her next fear was a 3rd book! Anyway, the interview included questions like Who is your favourite...
Her favourite artist, she didn't remember until she was leaving the building. I would like to know who you said his name, and country were so I can look him up on the internet. I tried right after the show, but obviously didn't have the correct spelling. I remember that he was an impressionist, and i thought his liast name was Sheila. Can you tell me what his name is?
Thanks, Marilyn Marshall Nanaimo, B.C.
