Andrew Struthers: Up-Island in Smoke


Andrew Struthers is, accord­ing to the Van­cou­ver Sun, “one of that select band of writ­ers whose minds are bent enough to be inter­est­ing but not so bent as to be unin­tel­li­gi­ble” — i.e., he bare­ly sticks out of the lus­cious green surf-bat­tered wilds of Van­cou­ver Island’s west coast. Struthers will be head­ing to his for­mer home next week to read from his new dou­ble-sided book The Sacred Herb / The Devil’s Weed, which BC Book­world called “a rau­cous­ly British Columbian mas­ter­piece.”
