CKUT goes to Chabanel

Yesterday afternoon, author B. Glen Rotchin could be heard interviewed on the CKUT 90.3 FM show “Shtetl on the Shortwave.” Host Tamara traveled to 99 Chabanel, the main setting for Glen’s novel The Rent Collector, and talked to Glen about his book and about the shmatte industry (garment industry) that inspired it.

Listen to Glen getting grilled about how cutthroat he is as a rent collector, himself (or, more politely, "property manager"). The interview can be heard here (click on the Jan 16 episode).

More of Glen’s musings can be found on his blog:
