Catriona Wright is releasing Difficult People—the follow-up to her debut poetry collection—and she’s celebrating with a Toronto Lit Up book launch! Join Nightwood Editions and the Toronto International Festival of Authors for this exciting event.
Manipulators and liars, egomaniacs, bullies, interrupters, condescenders, ice queens, backstabbers, hypocrites, withholders, belligerents, self-deceivers, whiners, know-it-alls, nitpickers: these are some of the characters you’ll encounter in Difficult People, a collection of stories that investigates and celebrates difficult people (and some animals).
As these characters fumble through their quests for YouTube fame, stand-up glory, romantic love, stable employment or anyone who can tolerate them, they reveal that we are all, in our own ways, difficult people.
Toronto Lit Up is a three year initiative, spearheaded by the Toronto Arts Council and the Toronto International Festival of Authors, designed to spotlight Toronto’s writers and empower local artists with career-building opportunities. Click here for more information.
