“Well. He had beaten me again. Shit. And I…”

When you steal somebody else’s life, what happens when you have to give it back?

Martin and Kurt are old college friends and aspiring writers. They share youthful inspiration, ideals and ambition until Kurt, the superior talent, gets a break with the publication of one of his stories in the New Yorker. Soon Kurt is heading for the big city lights and success, taking with him Martin’s girlfriend into the bargain.

‘North of Eight elegantly captures the dynamic and intricate weaving story elements resounding throughout Corwin’s brilliant writing’ – BCause Arts.

North of Eight presents this contemporary tale of literary and romantic betrayal, confronting the painful and poignant journey of finding your own voice.

“Because were I a stronger man…if I could have only once…”
