Michael Blouin featured in Ottawa Xpress
Ottawa Xpress talks to Michael Blouin about the structure of his novel, Chase & Haven:
'The sequence of the book is 'broken into thirds which mirror the passage of a day.' Scenes in the first section take place in mornings, in the second in afternoons and the final third in evenings.
Most interesting to me is the particular combination of prose and poetic language Blouin strives for. He explained: 'I tried to make each scene able to stand alone. Each one should be strong enough to not have to connect to the others.''
Blouin also reflects on life as a writer, teacher, husband and father. Read on at http://www.ottawaxpress.ca/books/books.aspx?iIDArticle=16262.
