Blind Luck is a new novel by the author Scott Carter. He joins me not to discuss the book which has been described as ‘a rambunctious ride along that slippery slope called chance,’ as well as a ‘poignant rumination on family, fortune and fate.’ It’s a book about gambling and family, death and fate. Dave Bolden is a 30-something whose life is without direction. He’s also incredibly lucky. We’ll ask the author who joins me now to tell us more. Scott Carter is an author and screenwriter. He has worked on numerous feature and short films, and his own company, Sad But True Entertainment has produced shorts for Bravo!, as well as a reality series. He has been teaching high school English for nine years, and he joins me from Toronto this day. The website for more is www.blindluck.ca. The book is published by Napoleon & Company. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Scott Carter; Good morning, Mr. Carter.
