"Whitty is a masterful storyteller..."
—Gurjinder Basran, author of "Someone You Love Is Gone"

"The Light a Body Radiates has all the gorgeous melancholy and raw yet dignified edge of the most beautifully played Cape Breton strathspey..."
—Carol Bruneau, author of "A Bird on Every Tree"

Set in working class Cape Breton, against the backdrop of the 60s revolution, the AIDS epidemic of the 80s, and the “culturally imperative migration” that urged so many away from the places they called home, "The Light a Body Radiates" is a story that engages powerfully with questions of place, secrets, loyalty, and what it means to “take care of your own.”
