No surprise to Whistler readers that Lisa Moore’s newest novel, February, (excerpted here at The Walrus) has been garnering rave reviews. Her appearance at the 2006 Literary Leanings readings series in Whistler won her a solid local fan base.
In the Globe and Mail, she tells John Barber: “I think a book is just part of a tree. The living thing is the story,” she said, adding that every book means something different to every reader. “When a reader speaks to me, it’s like the book is as much theirs as it is mine.”
Moore claims to love writing even more than she loves talking about it. “I think life just is deeper and richer when you reflect in the way you have to reflect in order to write about it. It’s an obsession. I absolutely love it. I love it, I love it”
