Kitchen Windows is a side-project of the Sunday Night Dinner podcast. In this time of Covid-19 and social isolation, it’s a chance to have a brief look into the kitchens of writers, musicians, chefs, artists and health-care superstars. What can they see out their window? What are they cooking for comfort? Who are they with? How do they spend their days?

Claudia Dey is a writer and the co-founder of the design studio and clothing brand Horses Atelier. Her latest novel is Heartbreaker. Don Kerr is a musician and record producer. He played in the Rheostatics for a number of years, and he’s the drummer and lead singer of the band, Communism. Their song, Take Care of Each Other should be the anthem of the pandemic. Dove and Austin are their sons.

You can find Claudia’s gorgeous store, Horses Atelier, at: horsesatelier.com

The song “Take Care of Each Other” is from Communism’s album Get Down Get Together, and features Don on drums and vocals; Kevin Lacroix on bass and vocals; and Paul Linklater on guitar and vocals. Kurt Swinghammer rocks the guitar in their live shows.

You can find more information about Sistering, a shelter that supports under-housed women at: sistering.org

Season 2. Ep 10: Claudia Dey Shares the Playlist to her New Novel and talks Dark Fantasies

Read more
In today's episode, we talk to Claudia Dey about her new novel "Heartbreaker".

Synopsis: Billie Jean is the essential #nastywoman many men and women fear because she sets the rhythm of her life. She arrives, seemingly out of nowhere, in “The Territory” a small community of 391 people, and falls in love with The Heavy, a man of few words with scars on his face and a blue thread sowed on his wrists. Together they have Pony Darlene Fontaine. She starts a side hustle called “The Complaint Department” and you will never guess what kind of complaints you can file there. Enter Traps, the richest man in the commune, his wife Debra Marie and their son, the quiet Supernatural. What follows is complicated so we had to have Claudia Dey on the podcast to tell us what made her use a cult as the backdrop of the story, the meaning behind the fantasy-filled names bestowed on the people (a dog is named Gene Rowlands and an old man, Sexeteria #NeedIsayMore?) and the sexual liberties the girls play with.

Pony Darlene Fontaine is 15 years old, on the phone with her best friend watching Teen Psychic when her mother, Billie Jean Fontaine, leaves her bedroom for the first time in months. Billie Jean walks out of the front door, gets in her truck, and vanishes. The Territory, population 400, is a settlement founded decades ago by a charismatic cult leader, and it has been cut off from the world ever since. The residents of this strange town think the year is 1985. They crimp their hair, wear shoulder pads, listen to Whitesnake on their Walkmans, and have no contact with anyone from the outside world. Except for Billie Jean, the first stranger they took in as their own. And now, Pony fears, Billie Jean has become the first resident to leave.

Heartbreaker is a novel about the deeply moving relationship between a mother and a daughter—and about the dark secrets they kept from one another. When Billie Jean disappears, Pony and her father frantically try to piece together memories from the months leading up to her disappearance and make sense of her actions. The search for Billie Jean takes us on a high-voltage ride through the complex impulses of the human heart.

Told through three unforgettable points of view––Billie Jean’s daughter, her killer dog, and her mysterious friend––Claudia Day's novel is as devastating as it is touching and funny. With electrifying prose, it gradually reveals a portrait of a woman who must keep secrets and reinvent herself in order to survive, and a daughter who will do whatever it takes to untangle those mysteries to find her beloved mother.

Claudia Dey on the art of being an artist

Read more

I had long heard about Claudia Dey, one of the two best dressed Torontonians, with the other being her best friend Heidi Sopinka. But it wasn't until I started doing my homework for this interview and met Claudia in her beautiful and charismatic home that I came to realize that Claudia is truly an interestingly oppositional woman. She is gentle yet firm, child-like yet serious, chaotic yet orderly, dark yet joyful. Even herself, Claudia admits that she is always drawn to people who embrace the beauty of being multidimensional and contrary.

It's safe to say Claudia's life is first and foremost amongst hats and books. Her essays have been published in The Paris Review, The Believer alongside many other elegant magazines. With the success from her first Novel, Stunt - being one of Globe & Mail and Quill & Quire Books of the Year 2008, Claudia's second novel Heartbreaker has been listed as one of the most anticipated novels in 2018.

During our conversation, Claudia expresses her relationship with a hat that was given to her by her mother when she was a teen; explains why she thinks writer is an "invisible profession"; and shares the art of being an artist.
