Feuilleton (4): A reading from Margaret Laurence’s The Stone Angel

In this scene from Margaret Laurence’s novel The Stone Angel, the elderly Hagar Shipley has escaped from her son Marvin’s house, in order to avoid being placed in a nursing home. She finds refuge in an abandoned building in the forest, along the coast. She has nothing but rainwater to drink until a stranger appears — Murray Ferney Lees. Hagar is suspicious and leery at first, but soon realizes that she has something in common with the stranger. This excerpt forms part of Chapter 8. Read my book review of The Stone Angel here.

Read by: Christopher Adam. The recording was produced at Viva Recording Studios in Ottawa, Ontario. Sound engineer: Luke Giles. Feature illustration: Viktor Forgacs.
