The Wikipedia entry on Dial M for Murder.

GAIL SCOTT is one of Canada's most important novelists, acclaimed for her experimental prose.  For her TALKIES presentation, she will be reading from her latest novel, The Obituary (Coach House Press 2010), and discussing both the role that Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder (1954) plays in her novel and the relationship between film and literature more generally.  

Gail Scott has published six books: the novels Heroine (Coach House 1987), Main Brides (Coach House 1993), My Paris (Mercury Press 1999), and The Obituary (Coach House 2010); the short story collection Spare Parts Plus Two (Coach House 2002); and the co-edited volume Biting the Error (Coach House 2004).  She has also translated into English Michael Delisle’s Le Déasarroi du matelot, for which she was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award for translation (2001).  She is presently the Creative Writing coordinator in the Département d’études anglaises at the Université de Montréal.
