Technically this is a product + book review, because not only do I regale my viewers with (somewhat) insightful comments on Kim Thuy’s latest book Vi, but I also review some local chocolate by Master Chocolat! Yes, I’m really taking to this chocolate blogging thing, it’s a true passion of mine.  I’ve also changed my camera setting from auto-focus to manual focus, which I think is better, but let me know if this is the case.

Anywho, I loved Vi, and I’m really excited to be interviewing Thuy in October for Wordfest, along with a few other Can-lit heavyweights (Elizabeth Hay, Esi Edugyan, Wayne Grady just to name a few). I should also mention that I recorded this video before Kim was longlisted for the Giller Prize, so congratulations to her on that. If you have any questions you’d like me to pass along to her or any of these amazing authors, comment below! And as always, thanks for watching my videos.
