Gail Anderson-Dargatz

Fiction

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20030507, 20011128

This young Canadian writer has been twice nominated for the Giller Prize, one of the country’s prestigious literary awards, the first time for her first novel The Cure for Death by Lightning, and most recently for her second novel, A Recipe for Bees. This 1998 book, which has been translated into thirteen languages, tells the unsentimental, but sensual story of a woman’s farm life in British Columbia. Anderson-Dargatz talks about this fictional story, which holds a special place for her since it prompted her real-life parents to reunite after years of divorce.
