In a recent interview with The Next Chapter on CBC Radio One, Jowita Bydlowska discusses the inspiration for her first novel, Guy: escaping herself. She started writing the novel during the editing stage of Drunk Mom, and found the idea of spending time in the mind of a misogynistic womanizer liberating after spending so much time writing about herself.

To see Jowita read, come join the “Shame: A Fictional Exploration” discussion on Saturday, November 5th at 2:30 pm as part of the Off the Page festival at 5605 Ave du Gaspé, #106.
