AMARA LAKHOUS: SHINING A LIGHT ON IMMIGRANTS

AMARA LAKHOUS: SHINING A LIGHT ON IMMIGRANTS
As a kid living somewhere in the vast Canadian prairies, I sang, along with my friends, nasty little ditties about Mussolini, and knew that lots of Italians lived in New York, that the Godfather ruled the mobs in the US—everyone read Puzo’s books and watched the movies—and that something called The Red Brigadescaused havoc for a time. Then, a few years ago, I stumbled across a little book called Clash of Civilizations over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio by Amara Lakhous. (2006). A satire told with sympathy for the international cast of Italians and the immigrants who want the good life of Europe but grieve for what they have lost—family, identity, home… In this book, Lakhous highlights the d...

Books and biscuits


Yesterday I gave my fifth book talk of the season about Xaghra’s Revenge to readers at the Lache Library, Chester, UK. I gave a quick outline of the plot. Fact: pirates abducted 5,000 people off the Mediterranean island of Gozo in 1551 and sold them into slavery or ransomed the rich. A few young women were shipped to a harem in Constantinople. I gave those souls revenge in the novel, but often while doing research the truth is stranger than fiction. Most of the attendees at my talks in Britain had been to the Maltese islands but didn’t know of the pirate raid in 1551 and were as shocked as I. Most didn’t know that one of the oldest buildings in the world (older than the pyramids and Stonehen...

No, this is not Syria

No, this is not Syria
Downtown Victoria, BC, next door to the Inner Harbor, the demolition crew provides grand entertainment for locals and tourists on a sunny Saturday. But why are they tearing down this old building?   Customs House, which takes up an entire city block framed by Government, Wharf and Courtney streets, was built on the harbour between 1894 and 1898. It has been variously known as the Federal Building, Post Office and Customs House, the latter for its role in processing goods leaving and entering the country. Its important historical features include the façade’s sandstone walls, quarried from nearby islands in Georgia Strait. It also has what might be considered an eminently forgettable element ...
