Visiting the Sunday Antique Market down by St. Lawrence Market this past weekend, I considered myself fortunate to find a
1973 paperback edition of the Graeme Gibson book Eleven Canadian Novelists. I had looked forward to having a chance to reading these interviews, to see what these people were saying abut their craft. I also looked forward to reading, if I had to admit, the interviews with the authors who did not rise to prominence. Gibson’s interview with Margaret Atwood, at the time of the anthology’s writing his still-new partner, was also something I looked forward to reading. All this for $C 5!

And then came the news yesterday of Gibson’s death in London. Now I really have to read this.
