Ray Robertson fans: some American coverage for I Was There The Night He Died courtesy of Minneapolis's Star Tribune. Here's the lead-off:
Problems increasingly familiar to baby boomers embroider Ray Roberston’s “I Was There The Night He Died — aging and ill parents; the prevalence of Alzheimer’s; difficult relatives, and the attendant duties of ushering them out of this world, respectfully disposing of their possessions and homes. Self-absorbed novelist Sam Samson has taken on such tasks, back “home” in working-class Chatham, a few hours west of his adopted Toronto.
And for all you Torontonians, don't forget that Ray will be participating at the amazing Luminato Literary Picnic @ Trinity Bellwoods Park this Sunday and will be taking Stage A by storm at roughly 2:15PM. It's a great chance to get some sun, grab some delicious grub, and have a chat one of Canada's most beloved authors. Free signatures for all dads, so don't be shy.
