Part of The Writing Life series

Tess Fragoulis was born in Crete, but grew up in Montreal, where she still resides. After several non-writing related jobs, she began public readings and put together the cabaret series, "The Absinthe Saloon." Her first novel, Stories to Hide from Your Mother, was inspired by a return trip to her motherland and deals with the mythology and superstitions of Greek culture. It was nominated by the Québec Writer's Federation for Best First Book.

In this documentary, she discusses her reputation as both a wild person and a wild writer, integrating the public persona with the private person.
