Hamilton’s very own Brent van Staalduinen, author of the forthcoming novel Saints, Unexpected, shares his favourite Hamilton-related books and authors. Here are Brent’s thoughts on Rachael Preston’s The Fishers of Paradise:
A historical novel about a long-gone aspect of our beloved city, the boathouses on the Cootes Paradise marsh. The marsh is still there—and less than a kilometer from my home—but the area is now a protected wetlands. She will also be at GritLit’s April 10 Writing the City panel.
