This week we talk to Ruth Clarke about her new book WHAT GOES AROUND. Ruth has written in many genres over the years but WHAT GOES AROUND is Ruth’s first full-length novel; her first publications: BEFORE THE SILENCE and WHAT WE HOLD DEAR were history books, but even then she used fictional characters as narrators—an element several readers have called magic realism. Her short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies and her journalism has been published in daily and weekly newspapers and magazines. She is a veteran of the writing and publishing community where she was promotion manager for a publishing company, co-founder of a book distribution company; she has worked for the Writers’ Union of Canada, and the Canada Council’s National Book Festival. Some of our listeners may remember that she developed and ran the Ganaraska Writers’ Colony in Port Hope. She now divides her time between Canada and Latin America.
