Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology of Canadian experimental writers evokes the rich and unexpected heritage of current Canadian fiction. It contains groundbreakingly ruptured, side-splittingly excessive, weirdly lucid, and above all, endlessly interesting writing. Contributors include Michael Ondaatje, Leonard Cohen, Graeme Gibson, Christopher Dewdney, George Bowering, and Matt Cohen, as well as innovators such as Ray Smith, J. Michael Yates, Gail Scott, Andreas Schroeder, Audrey Thomas, and Robert Zend.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 233-234).

Synopsis:

The idea was Margaret Atwood's. She introduces Ground Works, and joins forces with avant-garde poet Christian Bok to collect the very best experimental fiction written in English between 1965 and 1985. Read unusual writing by such luminaries as Michael Ondaatje, Leonard Cohen, Matt Cohen, George Bowering, Christopher Dewdney, Graeme Gibson, Steve McCaffery, and Daphne Marlatt.
