Books Info:

Writers Talking free pdf 'What's most interesting about the book is the ways in which almost all the writers work out what it means to be Canadian writers. Michael Winter discusses having to leave Newfoundland in order to be able to write about it- Steven Heighton relates how his travels through Canada, as well as outside of it, forged his identity as a writer- Mary Borsky speaks of wonder at her realization that Canada could be an acceptable setting for serious literature- Terry Griggs traces her development as a writer to her childhood discovery of the differences of region in Canada. In telling their histories, the authors featured in "Writers Talking" who also include Lisa Moore, K.D. Miller, Elise Levine, and Annabel Lyon, tell the history of recent Canadian literature itself, shedding light not only on their work and careers, but also on the people and places that have made it all possible.'
