it was amazing
Read in September, 2008

Spare language, irony, bare bones and poignant wisdom: this story of a woman who flees her comatose suburban marriage the day she gets her first pension cheque is one of literature's finest moments. Set in Montreal. I am trying to find the author's whereabouts because I want to send her a letter. Anyone here know where I can reach her?

Jesse Hi Kathleen,

I don't know if you tried this already but...

The best way to reach an author is usually by contacting the publishing house, in this case McClelland & Stewart. A publisher won't give out an author's personal contact info but will forward on any letters (especially) of praise and let the author decide if s/he would like to get back to you. If you want to email the letter, I would suggest contacting publicity, publicity@mcclelland.com. If you'd like to mail it, I'd address it to:

Constance Beresford-Howe
Author of The Book of Eve
c/o
McClelland & Stewart Ltd.
75 Sherbourne Street
5th Floor
Toronto, Ontario
M5A 2P9

If they bought the rights to the book from another company and the author or author's family is not receiving royalties, they may not be able to help you.

Jesse

Thank you, Jesse! I will try that.
