P.S.  Dune was not good. But it was amazing. But it was really, really bad.

As Canada Day and the Fourth of July are just on the horizon, we thought we’d talk about fireworks, CanLit, and an exciting announcement by a well-known American author!

If you’re looking for a Canadian/ American read, check out The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King.

Ahoy, matey! After a bit of a break, Hardcover’s back from our sea-faring adventures! This week’s episode: a well-known pirate adventure novel, goes by the name of Treasure Island, arr!

 

Eddie Izzard as Long John Silver in a 2012 adaptation of Treasure Island (actually produced by Sky 1, not the BBC as was said in the episode. Sorry, friends!). Definitely worth a view!
