Frukin's Fabrizio


Mark Frutkin returned to the Library & Archives Canada on Wednesday evening for the official launch his novel, Fabrizio's Return. Complete with two Commedia dell'arte players to entertain the guests there was plenty to drink and eat...so much I wonder why I prepare dinner at all. It was great to see so many in Ottawa's writing community come out to see the Ottawa launch of the book, like Alan Cumyn (The Soujourn), Elizabeth Hay (Garbo Laughs), Suki Lee (literary curator of Westfest), John Buschek (Buschek Books), David O'Meara (The Vicinity) and even Alan Neal (CBC's Ontario Today).

Just a reminder, that Frutkin's book give-away contest is still on. See my previous post for details. It's easy, just see johnwmacdonald.com, click on photos.johnwmacdonald.com and list all the people you see in the comment section. Good luck!


Faith Seltzer, Mark's "closest reader and favourite editor", gets a spin on the dance floor from the Commedia dell'arte players before the reading.

Thanks so much for the photos, John! I missed the commedia performers, so I'm glad to get a glimpse of what they looked like.

No problem! I didn't take many of them, but this was nice. And thanks for your comments on your website too.
