The Biblio File Hosted by Nigel Beale : Andre Alexis accuses David Gilmour of Racism
Twenty - forty minute interviews with accomplished authors, publishers, biblio people, conducted by an excitable bibliophile.

A - Fiction by AndreĢ Alexis

I met with Andre Alexis last fall to discuss his latest novella, A (BookThug, 2013). During our conversation we hit, among other things, on literary criticism, book reviewing, 'Good' and 'Baddeley' literary critics, and David Gilmour and his GG Award winning novel A Perfect Night to go to China, and Alexis's contention that racism is contained in the chapter in this novel entitled “The Pigeon”.  

Please note that, as a condition of making the recording of this conversation public, Alexis's essay titled “Of a Smallness in the Soul” is being made readily available (as it is right here) to visitors to this web page...and that the point is being made, clearly, that this essay is Alexis's argument for (or demonstration of) the racism contained in ...David Gilmour’s chapter entitled “The Pigeon”, from his novel,The Perfect Order of Things."
