Erika Rummel’s HEAD GAMES Reviewed on Words To Go Podcast

Erika Rummel‘s newest novel, Head Games (Guernica 2013) has been reviewed in a podcast by author Carole Giangrande, who hosts WORDS TO GO, a showcase for new writers and the spoken word. Words To Go is heard in over twenty countries around the world.

Carole says: “Identity’s a big theme in this work, so if you’ve ever felt you were someone other than yourself, if you thought you might like to try living in someone else’s skin, if you’ve wondered whether your friends and loved ones were not exactly who they claimed to be, then this psychological labyrinth might just be your winding road to a good read”.

Erika Rummel obtained her doctorate from the University of Toronto. She then worked for the University of Toronto Press on a project to publish the works of the 16th century humanist, Desiderius Erasmus. Hired by the Department of History at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, she managed to put out a book a year, and was rewarded with a Full Professorship, SSHRC grants, and with fellowships in Germany and the US.

Her newest novel, Head Games, is about a young woman named Lisa who enters into a quest to Argentina, encountering many characters with their own twisted agendas along the way. It is a journey born of longing for love and the desperate need for something solid to hold on to. This is a twist on the old story of a young woman running an obstacle course of deception in her quest for love. Argentina in the 70s is a country where kidnapping and violent death no longer make headlines, a country where Lisa learns a new set of survival skills.
