Robert Dayton and The Empty Bed (Louise Bak)

Louise spends time with the Toronto writer and artist Robert Dayton, who’ll discuss aspects of his pen-and-ink book, The Empty Bed (Impulse[b]). It is a pained, humorous work, where words and pictures include the author’s obsessive process with heartbreak, after the end of romantic relationships. The book includes a moving interview with the author’s Mother on divorce and her committed sense of love to an ailing partner, as well as The Death Wish Guide To Loss, considering the filmic character Paul Kersey and his vengeful vigilantism after his wife is found killed his wife and raped his daughter.
