Synopses & Reviews
Douglas Gibson, arguably the editor behind Canadas greatest literary talents, is a terrific storyteller himself. Through his recollections we get an inside view of Canadian politics and publishing that rarely gets told, from Jack Hodgins Vancouver Island to Harold Horwoods Labrador, from Alice Munros Ontario to James Houstons Arctic. Doug Gibson takes us on an unforgettable literary tour of Canada, going behind the scenes and between the covers, and opening up his own story vault for all to read and enjoy.
This new format edition includes the Stories About Storytellers Book Club: intriguing questions (laced with Gibsons own analysis and behind-the-scenes insight) about each of five celebrated Canadian works of fiction discussed in Stories About Storytellers: Alice Munros The Progress of Love, Mavis Gallants Home Truths, Hugh MacLennans The Watch That Ends the Night, Robertson Davies Whats Bred in the Bone, and Alistair MacLeods No Great Mischief.
