Author Craig Davidson gets gritty again, this time with novel ‘Cataract City’
From Yahoo! Canada News:
When Toronto-based author Craig Davidson showed up for a recent interview with a mild shiner and stitches above his left eyebrow, it seemed a more fitting than frightening sight.
After all, the 37-year-old is known for writing about brutal bouts in books, including the short story collection “Rust and Bone,” which was made into a 2012 Golden Globe-nominated film starring Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, and the novel “The Fighter,” for which he took steroids as part of his research and participated in a promotional boxing match.
With his new novel, “Cataract City,” he cast his imagination to the blood and gore of underground fighting once again as he wrote a compelling and witty coming-of-age tale of two friends who get caught up in the seedy underbelly of Niagara Falls, Ont.
It’d be interesting to read the book and see how Niagara Falls is presented.
