Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

I keep thinking of the trains in that Zola novel with Beast in the title. (Bete Humaine is it?). I wonder if I imagined there to be more trains than there are in it. Somewhere I read something about the Lime Quarry Workers Strike on Quadra Island in the 1930’s (1937 I think), I don’t know where I read it and each time I search for it I pull up nothing. Is it possible I imagined the entire thing? Most perplexing since I was captivated by what I read of it.

So my mind is awash with trains and non locatable viaducts and quarry and lime in locatable Island where I eat a ham sandwich once a year and sometimes swim while waiting on the ferry.
