Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

There’s a new collection of short stories from our friends at Mother Tongue Publishing. It’s called A Recipe for Disaster and Other Unlikely Tales of Love. Its author Eufemia Fantetti joins me now to talk about the collection and more. There are six stories here. They have universal themes of love of course, family and food. I’ll get the author to tell us where they come from, their inspiration, and what we might glean about her, the human condition, and whatever else can be gleaned from stories that are spare, taut, smart, witty, and perceptive. Eufemia Fantetti is a playwright and comedienne. She’s won many awards for her writing, and is a graduate of SFU’s Writers Studio. She has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Guelph as well. The website for more is at www.eufemiafantetti.com, and www.mothertonguepublishing.com. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program in Toronto today, Eufemia Fantetti; Ms. Fantetti, good morning.
