The Interruption With John Vaillant


Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Interruption, a 49th Shelf–Books on the Radio collaboration in which I interview Canadian writers about the surprising things that inform, inspire, and even interrupt their creative process.

Today I chat with the masterful John Vaillant, author of the new novel The Jaguar’s Children, out now from Knopf Canada. John is a hugely talented writer who has won almost every prize available including The Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-Fiction, the Pearson’s Writers’ Trust Non-Fiction Prize, the CBA Ex Libris for Non-Fiction Book of the Year and many more. His work has been translated in 15 languages around the world.  He lives in Vancouver and you can find him online at and on the twitter at @johnvaillant.

The Interruption always features two podcast selections for your listening enjoyment: the first podcast features my interview with John. The second podcast features a really great reading from The Jaguar’s Children.

Thank you for listening.
