Heather Mallick, of course. Her As If column in the Globe was the best thing about saturdays last year. Now she's gone, and I've been wondering what she's been up to. Well, here she is! And boy does she sum up my impressions of 24.
And if you don't know who she is, here's her bio off the CBC site:
Heather Mallick has a nice old-fashioned M.A. in English literature from the University of Toronto. She has worked as a reporter, copy editor and book review editor at various Toronto newspapers and most recently wrote a column called As If for the Globe and Mail. She has won National Newspaper Awards for critical writing and feature writing. Heather writes a political column for the New York Times Syndication Service that runs internationally. Her first book, Pearls in Vinegar, based on an ancient Japanese form of diary, appeared in 2004. Her second, an essay collection called Cake or Death: The Excruciating Choices of Everyday Life, will be published by Knopf in April 2007.
