"This book will add significantly to our understanding of one of Canada's most important writers." Kristjana Gunnars


"Challenging Territory consists of essays that give various insights into [Margaret Laurence's] fiction as well as her journalistic and political work. The contributions, carefully selected and organised, reflect a wide range of issues, from coloniality and postcoloniality, gender and power, to psychological, cultural, and sociopolitical aspects that affected Margaret Laurence's writing." Angela Spereng, Canadian Literature
