Me on the 49th Shelf

So today is actually my birthday, and the morning started off with many fine things: a series of delightful gifts from my wonderful wife; weekday waffles (so decadent!) for breakfast; and the good folks at the 49th Shelf posting this piece by me, "Lives Abroad", on their website. In this essay, I talk about a number of works by Canadian authors that either helped inspire Sad Peninsula or share a kinship with it. I include fiction by Margaret Laurence, David Bergen, Esi Edugyan and others. I consider this a nice little intro list into Canadian expat writing or writing about life aboard, so you should check these titles out if you haven't already. (And Sad Peninsula, too, of course.)
