Iggy, circa 1993


Brian Joseph Davis discovers a long lost zine interview with the Liberal leader.

“I feel my own writing isn’t plain enough yet and isn’t transparent enough yet. There’s too much kind of straining and pretending to be a writer in it. I love writing where it just feels so completely natural. So that makes me a great fan of Richard Ford and Raymond Carver and that school. Very, very fond of Don DeLillo.”

  1. Hard labour I can handle, but if they make us read Ignatieff in the re-education camps then I’m going to be pissed.

  2. I am fine with those choices. Great writers, all of ’em.

    And I’d rather have a PM who reads DeLillo than a Canadian Heritage Minister who’s never heard of Atom Egoyan!

  3. If Iggy reread any of his recent speeches / interviews – I suspect he’d have an awful feeling of “”Deja Vu all over again”!

  4. Plus ca change….
