Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Transplanted to Toronto from his native Baffin Island, Atuk the poet is an unlikely overnight success. Eagerly adapting to a society steeped in pretension, bigotry, and greed, Atuk soon abandons the literary life in favour of more lucrative - and hazardous - schemes.

Richlers hilarious and devastating satire lampoons the self-deceptions of “the Canadian identity” and derides the hypocrisy of a nation that seeks cultural independence by slavishly pursuing the American dream.

Synopsis:

McClelland & Stewart's elegant New Canadian Library series acknowledges and celebrates Canada's glorious literary achievements. Original Afterwords and bibliographies by leading writers complete each book.
-- Over 300 years of excellence in Canadian writing
-- Over one million sold since 1990
