WAM April 7 Linden MacIntyre
Linden will be in St. John’s next week as the final reader in the E. J. Pratt Visiting author’s series at Memorial University.
In this new book, MacIntyre tells the story through the voice of a woman - Effie MacAskill Gillis. A woman married three times, taken advantage of by husbands, relations and friends. A woman who thinks that now, in middle age, she is self-sufficient enough to live and prosper alone. Then she finds a man she thinks, finally, she can trust. Or trust just enough.
I spoke with Linden MacIntyre and asked him to imagine that we’d just run into each other at a cocktail party and what he’d say when I said I wanted a thumbnail sketch of his new book, Why Men Lie.
