April 2-3 Patrick Warner's First Novel
Patrick Warner is an award winning poet from Ireland who lives here in St. John’s, Newfoundland. His bio says he moved here in 1980 in search of economic prosperity and better weather and was disappointed on both counts.
Double Talk is the title of Patrick’s first novel. It’s the story of a failed marriage told backwards and from the duelling points of view of ex-husband and ex-wife. The story is set in downtown St. John’s and it’s full of wry references to the 1980s punk scene, humour and sadness over the loss of a once vibrant love.
