about

Now available in paperback, with a new chapter and reading guide Douglas Gibson, the editor behind Canada's greatest literary talents, is a terrific storyteller himself. Through his recollections we get an inside view of Canadian politics and publishing that rarely gets told, from Jack Hodgins' Vancouver Island to Harold Horwood's Labrador, from Alice Munro's Ontario to James Houston's Arctic. Doug Gibson takes us on an unforgettable literary tour of Canada, going behind the scenes and between the covers, and opening up his own story vault for all to read and enjoy. This new format edition includes a new chapter on Terry Fallis, as well as the Stories About Storytellers Book Club: intriguing questions (laced with Gibson's own analysis and behind-the-scenes insight) about each of five celebrated Canadian works of fiction discussed in Stories About Storytellers. These include Alice Munro's The Progress of Love, Mavis Gallant's Home Truths, Hugh MacLennan's The Watch That Ends the Night, Robertson Davies' What's Bred in the Bone, and Alistair MacLeod's No Great Mischief.
