Before novels, Michael Redhill wrote poetry. Twitch Force is his first collection in 18 years
For decades, Michael Redhill wrote poems, plays and novels, quietly becoming prolific until one night when everything changed. He won the prestigious Giller Prize, Canada's biggest and most lucrative literary award, which introduced tons of new readers to his winning novel Bellevue Square.
What new fans might not know about Redhill is that he was a poet before he was a novelist. He joined host Tom Power live in the q studio to discuss his first poetry collection in 18 years, Twitch Force, which is out now.
