Myths and Voices: Contemporary Canadian Fictionby David Lampe

This anthology gathers twenty-eight contemporary Canadian authors, some of whom are already well-known in the U.S., including Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, Leon Rooke, Mavis Gallant, Diane Keating, Jacques Ferron, Morley Callaghan, Marie-Claire Blais, and many others.
