What happens when two of the Olympian Gods—namely Apollo and Hermes—two of the “Bad Boy” gods—decide to spend a night of revelry in the Wheat Sheaf Tavern not far from Toronto’s waterfront?

Between their rounds of drinking, being worshipped and carelessly improvising at least one minor miracle, theyalexis-andre-2015 manage to have a conversation about the nature of humanity and human intelligence. It is this conversation that leads to the wager upon which André Alexis’s wonderful novel, Fifteen Dogs, is built.

Join me tonight at 7pm when I have a conversation with André Alexis about Fifteen Dogs on my radio program GRAFFITI. Listen to it on Hellenic Public Radio, WNYE, 91.5 fm. Or listen on-line at the Hellenic Public Radio/CosmosFM website.
