Writer’s Trust

Neither Erika Ritter nor Trevor Herriot win for non-fiction.  Read them anyway!  Ritter was written up by the Canadian Press two days ago.

“The book is not a book that is a book of advocacy,” the Regina native said over the phone from her Toronto home. “It’s meant to make us all feel guilty as a species I guess, but I think we already do.”

“In terms of the individual readers, I worried with some friends of mine who care for animals, that they were afraid to read the book because it would depress them,” added Ritter, who usually writes in a more humorous style in such books as “The Great Big Book Of Guys: Alphabetical Encounters with Men.”

“It’s hard to tell a roseate story about us and animals.”
