WAM October 29-30 Nicole Lundrigan
Writer Nicole Lundrigan moved away from Newfoundland when she was seventeen. Her work has been selected as a top ten pick by the Globe and Mail, long-listed for the Relit Award, and given honourable men-tion for the Sun-burst Award. Glass Boys is her fourth novel, and all four books have been set in Newfoundland.
Glass Boys has an unforgivable crime, an oozing mystery and enmity between families. And more. The two drunken Trench Brothers decide to pull a prank on Eli Fagan and the results are disastrous and deadly. The community of Knife’s Point, Newfoundland then becomes the setting for a story of love and vengeance.
I spoke with Nicole by phone this week about Glass Boys and asked her why she continues to write about Newfoundland.
