The Edmonton Journal


"...the collection is ideal for students and teachers of Canadian Literature at the high school or undergraduate levels, but would also be a useful resource for any active, engaged reader.... Overall, it imparts the impression of a vibrant, lively Canadian literature ranging widely in interests and preoccupations. The editors have been careful to select a diverse range of writers.... The net impact of this slim volume is to force a reconsideration of who in the world of Canadian literature is canonical and worthy of sustained, thoughtful examination. Every writer selected lives up to this standard.... [the] collection functions as something of a sampler pack of some of the most interesting writers working in Canada today."
