Anne Michaels & Wayson Choy

are both featured in the Saturday Globe today.
An excerpt from Choy's memoir Not Yet and a rave for Michaels' long awaited second novel, the Winter Vault are featured.
Stephen Hayward's review notes that,

"This is a book that proposes great themes: a critique of progress, an exploration of the nature of human suffering, an interrogation of the relationship between past and present. And yet, for all of that, it remains at bottom a deeply affecting love story about intimacies and distances that grow, shift and dissolve between people — and about how we all carry within us a secret place where we store our wounds until the world thaws adequately for us to bury them.
Anne Michaels, in short, is back."

They share a stage here and tickets are available, free with purchase of either of the books.
