Russell Banks’ Foregone was also featured by the Globe and Mail, in an editorial by Russell Banks himself which also explores his reasons for becoming a Canadian citizen. Banks also had an interview and event with Globe and Mail writer Sandra Martin for One Page: Canada’s Virtual Literary Series! The Globe and Mail editorial can be found here, and you can still watch the One Page event and interview here.

Russel Banks explains in his article:

“I want my identity as a Canadian to be a significant part of my legacy. To do that, I first have to claim it. Also, for myself alone, I simply want to honour my father’s and my grandparents’ origins, the way I hope my children and grandchildren will someday honour mine. I want to merge my life’s story in the U.S. with my ancestors’ tales of two-and-a-half centuries of work and love in the Maritime provinces of Canada.”

You can order Foregone from Biblioasis, or from your local bookstore.
