Ross Murray launches A Hole in the Ground

Ross Murray launches A Hole in the Ground

Ross Murray came to Livres Trois Canons in mid-November to speak about his new novel.

Cassandra Kerwin from the Quebec Chronicle Telegraph (QCT) was there.

Here is a snippet of her article that appeared in the 23 Nov edition of the QCT.

On November 16, Livres Trois Canons bookstore welcomed guests to a special book launch to meet Canadian humorist and columnist Ross Murray as he launched his debut novel, A Hole in the Ground.

“My novel is set in the fictional lumber town of Beaverly on the Saint-Régis River [not the river flowing through upstate New York]. It is just after the 1998 Ice Storm,” said Murray. “Beaverly’s claim to fame is Canada’s deepest but least exploited sinkhole. It is caught up in litigation between the town, which wants it to be a tourist attraction, and the owners of the land, who are jerks.

“The idea of [southeastern Quebec] municipalities creating their own emergency plans after the Ice Storm factors into the story,” he said. “I wanted the Internet to be in its infancy. At the time, I had this sense that the Internet was going to be something incredible, but it wasn’t going to harm local newspapers. Obviously, I am wrong.” He continued, “I wanted it to be pre-9/11. I started thinking about the story back then, around 1998.”
