Rachel Rose: excerpt from Of Rats and Men

Interview, Ingrid Rose, Host, Carole Harmon

Rachel's stories explore cause and effect, inter-species bonding, and shine a glaring spotlight on the experience of being “other". The protagonists in her stories are individuals who have been harmed in life, who live on the margins of society. Their animal friends are creatures we also think of as other: rats for instance. Rachel is the author of poetry, prose, and now short story. She is a teacher, writing mentor and community activist who lives in Vancouver, Canada.
