The Oxford Illustrated Literary Guide to Canada
This lavishly illustrated volume takes readers on a captivating tour of the Canadian literary landscape. Visiting some 500 locations across Canada--from Newfoundland to British Columbia to the Northwest Territories--we see writers plying their craft in small, unlikely places and in large urban
centers, and visit the sites that have made literary history.
Albert and Theresa Moritz have devoted years to this project--combing archives, government documents, newspapers and biographies--and have consulted many leading authors, literary scholars, and local historians. The result is an unusually detailed volume sprinkled with anecdotes and surprising
information. They describe the accident that led to the publication of Stephen Leacock's first book, which set him on the road to fame...reveal how Hugh MacLennan escaped injury in the Halifax explosion of 1917...and visit the burial place of the dog that inspired Marshall Saunder's Beautiful Joe.
The authors provide much detailed information, including the exact addresses of the homes of famous authors and of other important sites, that direct you to places you wish to visit. An indispensable guide when traveling in Canada, this fascinating book will deepen your understanding and
appreciation of Canadian literary history.
