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.
