Sullivan, Rosemary

SUMMARY

Over the past one hundred and fifty years, and most especially since the late 1960s, Canadian women have made a remarkable contribution to world literature. Carol Shields won the Pulitzer Prize; Margaret Atwood, Janette Turner Hospital, Anne Michaels, and Carol Shields were short listed for the Booker Award; Atwood and Michaels were nominated for the Orange. This anthology enocmpasses over a century and a half of writing by Canadian women. The stories collected here represent across-section of the best writing by women in the genre and demonstrate a wide range of styles from the realistic to the post-modern and experimental. All the stories are about women: in childhood, adolescence, maturity, old age; in relationships such as daughters, sisters, lovers, mothers; in a varietyof social and political contexts. Though all authors are Canadian by birth or choice, nationality and gender have different meanings for each of them. But all write confidently and eloquently of their experience as women. At the end of the last century, no one could have predicted such wealth in women's writing. Now we have only to celebrate it.This collection of highly readable stories is ideal for the trade market while at the same time Rosemary Sullivan establishes a canon of stories for the university/college market. These are writers engaging with many different genres, including historical fiction, domestic drama and more abstract introspection. No reader will fail to be amused, enthralled, intrigued, or invigorated.Sullivan, Rosemary is the author of 'Oxford Book of Stories by Canadian Women in English' with ISBN 9780195414264 and ISBN 0195414268.
