This episode of The Green Interview features Brian Brett, a passionate and diverse award-winning Canadian novelist, critic, and poet. His latest book, Trauma Farm: A Rebel History of Rural Life, is a lyrical, honest, and often amusing portrayal of rural life interspersed with thought-provoking reflections about the modern world, and rooted throughout by a profound knowledge of biology and botany. It is his memoir based on the last 18 years spent tending a small mixed farm-affectionately named Trauma Farm-on Salt Spring Island in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. In his book-and in this Green Interview-Brett explores the social realities of rural community life and the consequences of our estrangement from the interconnectedness of all things.
