Writer and broadcaster Eleanor Wachtel met Carol Shields in 1980 and first interviewed her in1987. Over almost two decades they kept up a dialogue in conversation and correspondence that ranged from talks about writing, language and consciousness to coping with illness. Random Illuminations is Wachtel’s collection of those discussions, which offer us an intimate portrait of a great Canadian writer. Wachtel is widely admired for her contribution to arts journalism and as the host of CBC Radio’s Writers and Company.
