Canadian writers at work: interviews

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1987 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
This book includes ten of the best interviews--with Alice Munro, Margaret Atwood, Bharati Mukherjee, Mavis Gallant, Josef Skvorecky, and others--from Canadian Fiction Magazine. Discussing modernist and postmodernist techniques, the influence of biography, the morality of art, the pressures put on writing by the contemporary world, and what it means to live in and write about Canada, these classic interviews, many out of print until now, provide invigorating debate on Canadian literature today.
