Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy

And now, a musical interlude, from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, because he will soon (March 22) be appearing in Saskatoon at the Broadway Theatre. We are not to be graced in Victoria, alas. I must have invoked him because I was looking through some of his Youtube appearances a few days before I happened upon the notice for his show when I was in Saskatoon last weekend. Andrew put me onto him when I was in London a couple of years ago.

  1. From my point of view, one of the upsides of the current economic crisis may be the need for writers based in academe to start thinking about how important it is to be reimbursed for their creative writing. They live in ivory towers at the moment, but a practical need to attract income (aka “justification.” See, for example: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/25/books/25human.html) may mean solidarity at last with serious writers who have chosen not to pursue academic careers.
