Writers’ Roost Season 2, Episode 2 featuring Professor John P. Portelli and his novel, Everyone but Fajza.
Writers’ Roost (Season 2, Episode 1)
Professor Emeritus John Portelli's latest novel begins with a bang: media reports erupt when Fajza is discovered with gunshot wounds, unconscious and abandoned next to one of Toronto’s most violent high schools. As Fajza, the daughter of Maltese-Turkish immigrants, lays in a hospital bed, those closest to her must grapple with the hand each of them played in her uncertain future. Through their narratives, Portelli explores into the tensions between traditional and progressive beliefs, and the complexities of life within a multicultural society.  

In this episode of Writers' Roost, Jeff will speak to Professor Portelli about the inspiration behind this page-turning mystery, and the complexities of the migrant experience in Canada.
