Jane Urquhart’s Away

The Story


Jane Urquhart thought she was just about finished her novel -- until she visited St. John's, Newfoundland. The city was just one of the places she visited while researching Away, her 1993 book about a family immigrating to Canada from Ireland in the 19th century. In conversation with CBC Radio host Peter Gzowski, Urquhart talks about the novel and about her own experiences as a writer.
