The BookThug Video Interview with André Alexis, author of A

A is a work of fiction in which André Alexis presents the compelling narrative of Alexander Baddeley, a toronto book reviewer obsessed with the work of the elusive and mythical poet Avery Andrews. Baddeley is in awe with Andrews’s ability as a poet – more than anything he wants to understand the inspiration behind his work – so much so that, following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims throughout literary history, Baddeley actually tracks Andrews down thinking that meeting his literary hero will provide some answers.
