Nino Ricci The Origin of Species

As the site reads,

“Nino Ricci's newest novel, The Origin of Species, is the winner of the 2008 Governor General's Award for Fiction. Set in Montreal in the 1980s, it tells the story of one man's search for love, meaning, and guilt-free sex while trying to get over the scars of an ill-fated trip to the Galapagos.”




I have been waiting in the long queue at my local library to read this book. The last time I checked, my placed had dropped to 4th in line. I have been busy with other books, so I was none too concerned about the wait. But then I noticed, while looking at the upcoming Writer’s Festival in Elora, Ontario, Nino Ricci is on the list of readers.

Again, just another motivation for me to stay in touch with these local festivals.

The Elora Writers' Festival, June 7

It is written.
