Adam Giles reading his story
Tonight, on Life Rattle No. 1207, we bring you a Life Rattle Classic, written and read by Adam Giles.
Adam Giles has been a frequent contributor to Life Rattle since he first appeared on the program in June of 2001. For many years Adam was a radio show host.
Giles was born the older of two boys in 1978, in Mississauga where he grew up. He completed his fifth year at University of Toronto at Mississauga, where he served as editor-in-chief for the campus newspaper. He went on to earn a post-graduate diploma in Journalism and New Media.
Giles has written for the web, for several print publications, for CTV Newsnet and read his short story “Christine” on CBC Radio One.
Adam Giles writes in a straight-forward, unadorned style. His writing sounds effortless. His characters and situations seem to grow out of the stories, as much between the lines as from them.
Tonight’s story is a moving reminiscence. Giles’ unhurried prose style presents us with a series of scenes from the point of view of a grandchild that show a life lived among family.
