Description

Sorrows come not as single spies, but in battalions. What if nothing is left in their wake but newspaper clippings? In an age of insecurity, few have a more tenuous hold on employment than the freelance newspaper writer. Fewer still have bigger egos. In Fishwrap, comedy and anger, defiance and lonely bewilderment are woven together in a monologue that continually bursts beyond the confines of a single character. A writer and his voices mourn the loss of what seems to be everything.

Contributor Notes

David Macfarlane is the author of two award-winning bestsellers. His family memoir, The Danger Tree, won the Canadian Authors Assocation Award for non-fiction. His novel, Summer Gone, was shortlisted for the Giller Prize and won the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award. Mr. Macfarlane has written several short works for theatre among them, The Prank, first performed at the Tarragon Spring Arts Fair, and After Dinner, a play about Harold Pinter, performed, harrowingly enough, in the presence of Mr. Pinter as part of Harbourfront Centre's "World Leaders: A Festival of Creative Genius." He is currently completing a book on the marble quarries of Carrara. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Janice Lindsay, and their two children.
