Word On The Street Halifax is one of many festivals that contribute significantly to the economic wealth of Nova Scotia. We do more than place writers on stage. We proudly host some of the finest talent in Canadian literature, with a strong focus on Atlantic Canada. This year we celebrate our 25th anniversary. Save the date and join in the celebrations!
Angst, seduction, escape and extinction control these many tales—a whisper in the ear convinces a lady to take the plunge, another to take up surfing, and a young man to jump in front of a moving train—and there is joy in settling a score with despised neighbours and a conspiracy under the California sun. Some sketches are laced with passion and loss—a son comes to know his mother from a series of letters following her death, while a face transplant changes a man’s life, but with it comes the unwanted pursuit of the donor’s wife—while others show murderous aspirations and an irrepressible desire for release. Always vital, Vita opens wide the windows into our many lives.
Susan E Lloy has consistently published internationally since 2012. Her first collection of offbeat tales, But When We Look Closer, was recently published by Now Or Never Publishing. Her forthcoming collection, Vita, will be released April 15, 2019. Susan lives in Montreal.
