In today’s National Post, I examine whether or not we’re in the “golden age” of Canadian hip hop — personally, I say yes. Also: I sit down with Peter Darbyshire to discuss his new novel, The Warhol Gang.
Some colleagues and I took the latest batch of Super Soakers out for a test.
In Wednesday’s National Post I sit down with Simon Brault to talk about his new book, No Culture, No Future.
I’ve spent much of this week attending the Humber School for Writers researching the next installment in the ongoing The Ecology of Books series. I was fortunate enough to interview Martin Amis, who invited me to sit-in while he taught. I’ve posted a write-up over on The Afterword.
Pick up the newest issue of Spacing. I take a look at Michael Redhill’s latest novel, Consolation.
Be sure to check out the new issue of This Magazine for, among other things, my (very) brief look at Joe Ollman’s book This Will All End in Tears.
Be sure to check Torontoist all this week for our “Love/Hate” lists for 2006, which I contributed to.
After months of procrastination this website is finally up and running. If you are here looking for Mark Medley the surgeon or Mark Medley the divorce lawyer in San Antonio, Texas, I’m sorry to disappoint you. This is the online home of Mark Medley, of Toronto, Ontario.
Expect few updates until the Spring.
