David Adams Richards: Essays on His Works
David Adams Richards is one of Canada's foremost writers. A writer of poetry, short fiction, screenplays, non-fiction, essays and polemics, Richards' most prodigious work thus far has been as a novelist. With fifteen books and all of the major Canadian literary prizes to his credit, Richards is still relatively unknown by the reading public. This collection, the first book-length study of Richards' work, is meant to remedy that situation. Richards' interviews with the editor and opening essay situate his own beginnings as a writer and his dogged persistence in staying the course.
