Russell Smith is one of Canada’s funniest and nastiest writers. His previous novels, including How Insensitive and Girl Crazy, are records of urban frenzy and exciting underworlds. He writes a provocative weekly column on the arts in The Globe and Mail and teaches in the MFA programme at the University of Guelph. Smith presents his latest collection of short stories, Confidence, which was shortlisted for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. It shows a darker side of urban dwellers, including mommy bloggers, PhD students and experimental filmmakers.
