BOOKWORMS: THE GIRL FROM DREAM CITY BY LINDA LEITH

JAN 25Online via zoom, in English.

It's the life that many dream of: education in some of Europe's most beautiful cities before becoming a novelist, essayist, translator and literary curator.
 
But the start of Linda Leith''s journey is anything but idyllic. The daughter of a glamorous mother and a charming left-wing doctor, she is never told of her father's psychiatric breakdown or his subsequent shock therapy for what was then called manic depression.
 
As this secret festers, Leith''s father uproots the family to various European cities as he reinvents himself as a corporate executive, eventually moving across the Atlantic to Montreal.
