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

Two small co-incidences today, a friend emails me and suggests I might like Jane Rule’s novel The Young in Another One’s Arms at precisely the moment I am reading p37 of said novel and liking it.

In Campbell River I ran into a visual artist who generously gave me a lift across Quadra, we missed the ferry, drank beer, had a lengthy exchange on art criticism, literature, rooftop gardening. As we were driving across Cortes I noticed he was reading Tony Judt’s Ill Fares The Land and told him that I’d learnt of Judt’s death last night. He was shocked at the news.
