Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

Nino Ricci is one of Canada's most distinguished and premier novelists. His newest book is The Origin of Species, and like his previous works, it is already a critically acclaimed success. It has been described as poignant, humorous and searing. Its publication is one of the fall season's most important events in the book industry. The book follows Alex, a thirty-something Montrealer in the 1980s. He's the centre of the book, and we follow him through the decade's events and some extraordinary experiences in his life. The book is published by Doubleday and retails for $34.95. Joining me now from here in Vancouver on the Planta: On the Line program is Nino Ricci; Good morning, Mr. Ricci.
