TRT featured on Arts East e-magazine

Posted: October 3, 2010 in This Ramshackle Tabernacle

Stephen Patrick Clare, one of the guys behind Canada’s 100 Greatest Books  blog, has begun publishing Arts East, Atlantic Canada’s first and only monthly all-arts e-magazine!

Arts East supports and celebrates the work of local and regional artists with feature articles, Q&A’s, profiles, guest columnists, reviews, event listings, etc. 
And they have a spotlight on This Ramshackle Tabernacle in this months’ editon!

“Showcasing an impressive range of voices – from a mentally-ill teenager to bickering elderly couples – these stories are linked by shared characters and setting. It’s a book with teeth as sharp as its heart is tender. You’ll laugh out loud at ‘Becoming Maria’ or ‘Crafty Old Dragon’ but you’ll be riveted by the harrowing stand-out story ‘Shaver.’ There are shockers, like ‘Roulette,’ while stories like ‘Adrift’ simply strum a reader’s heartstrings. And that’s a real strength here: these stories are emotionally engaging. A deep empathy and sincere compassion punches through and unites all his stories. They are stories about outcasts and characters on edge, and the forces that can push them over or haul them back to safety. This Ramshackle Tabernacle is weighty; it lingers and swims in a rare and profound humanity” (Chad Pelley, author of Away From Everywhere).
