Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection certain to become the gold standard for short-fiction anthologies, Canadian or otherwise.

Turn of the Story represents and celebrates the work of twenty of Canada's finest contemporary writers, including Margaret Atwood, Dionne Brand, Bonnie Burnard, Elisabeth Harvor, Steven Heighton, Greg Hollingshead, Monique Proulx, Carol Shields, and Guy Vanderhaeghe — among others.

The editors invited submissions from established writers and new writers and everyone in between, making excellence the sole criterion for inclusion. As a result, this book will long be treasured not only for unveiling new work by favourite writers, but for bringing to our attention writers who are poised to carry on Canada's literary legacy in the years ahead.
