Storied Canadian Calm

This being Canada Day--146 years since the joining of three provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada) into one country--Linda Wertheimer of National Public Radio (NPR) profiles Robert Rotenberg. He’s a criminal lawyer as well as the author of four legal thrillers set in Toronto, Ontario, the newest of which is Stranglehold (Touchstone).

You can listen to their exchange here.

By the way, Rotenberg is the third crime/mystery/thriller novelist to be profiled as part of NPR’s 2013 “Crime in the City” series. The previous subjects were Walter Mosley and Stuart Neville.

And if you are interested in learning more about Canadian crime fiction, be sure to check out recent coverage of that subject in Kirkus Reviews (here and here), plus these pieces from The Rap Sheet: “Maple Leaf Rage,” by Kevin Burton Smith; and “What’s a Little Crime Between Neighbors?” by J. Kingston Pierce.

A great little interview, esp. concerning his dyslexia. Made me look him up right away.
