This week on the Richard Crouse Show Podcast we meet Vivek Shraya. Described as “cultural rocket fuel” by Vanity Fair, Shraya is a Canadian multi-media artist whose art, music, novels, poetry and children’s books touch on themes of cultural as well as personal transformation. Her successful one woman show “How to Fail as a Popstar” details a failed career in music from singing in religious gatherings where you sang as a kid, to talent shows in Edmonton malls, to a grab at pop stardom… It’s now a raw and honest book about fame for, as the press release says, “any kid whoever sang into a hairbrush and imagined their name in lights.”

Then Eden Robinson, author of the Scotiabank Giller Prize nominated “Trickster” books stops by to talk about her life, quitting a five pack a day cigarette habit and the release of the final book in the troilogy, “The Return of the Trickster.”
