Reviews and Appearances

Provisionally Yours received good reviews in The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail (behind a paywall here)  and Publishers Weekly, the latter calling the book “an urbane thriller”.

An audio interview on Shelagh Rogers’s show, The Next Chapter, on CBC radio on May 25   is available  online at this link.

I’ll be appearing a some book clubs privately, but also at these public venues:I was in Lithuania five times in 2019, where the translation was getting  a lot of exposure and I found myself in the media, such as the cover of the weekly magazine below:

As well, I was on a Lithuanian radio show where the interviewer knew the names of my elementary school and high school sweethearts. I don’t remember ever writing about them anywhere. Mysterious.

I have been sitting on a Lithuanian advisory committee to the parliament, and here are a couple of photos of what that looks like: I’l be back there in March.

Sitting in the Constitution Room in the Lithuanian parliament building, listening to a speaker on human trafficking.

In the winter of 2020, I have sent along a manuscript of a new novel, whose working title is Skylark, Badger, Mole to my agent, to see what she thinks of it. We are in negotiations for film/TV rights to Provisionally Yours, so that might turn out. And in the meanwhile, I am researching a new novel set in the bohemian circle of artists and writers in cafe society in the Khrushchev era.
