A Greyhound Introduction, blog entry, Jan 9 06

By Anonymous January 9

I first came across Irving Layton in an anthology of Canadian poetry when I was first discovering my own voice as a writer and an artist. Since then I have read several of his books including his biography and his life and work have helped me become the artist that I am today (I'm not sure if that is a compliment).

I found a signed copy of "Red Carpet for the Sun" at a yard sale a few years ago and started reading it on the greyhound on the way to my older brothers wedding and I forgot the book on the bus. I'm not upset. I hope the person who found it learned to love Layton like so many have.
