Caterina Edwards was born in England, and now lives in Edmonton. With the publication of The Lion's Mouth in 1982, Caterina Edwards made her mark as an novelist. This coming-of-age story of an Italian immigrant woman is one of the first novels to combine ethnic questions with feminist ideas. Edwards' work includes short stories, novellas and a play, and explore questions of identity for men and women in Western Canada. This first book on Edwards' work examines her literary achievement and looks at the topics of subjectivity, bildungsroman, Cinderella and theories of fiction.
