Margaret Atwood--one of Canada's leading writers--and Robert Weaver--the dean of Canadian anthologists--have pooled their talents to produce this authoritative, as well as historically and regionally representative anthology of Canadian short stories.
Arranged chronologically from the 19th century to the present, this volume of forty stories offers the finest examples of Canadian writing, including a story by Margaret Atwood herself ("The Sin Eater"), as well as stories by Morley Callaghan ("Last Spring They Came Over"), Mavis Gallant ("The Ice Wagon Going Down the Street"), Margaret Laurence ("The Loons"), Alice Munro ("The Peace of Utrecht"), Mordecai Richler ("The Summer My Grandmother Was Supposed to Die"), Jane Rule ("Slogans"), Guy Vanderhaeghe ("Dancing Bear"), and many others. Drawing together some of the greatest stories in the English language, this anthology also features biographical notes and an index of authors.
