Critically acclaimed for its ambition and scope, The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature is considered the authoritative reference of its kind. The original concise version appeared in 2001, retaining the Companion's informative coverage of major writers, significant works, and other aspects of the Canadian literary scene, while omitting regional and genre surveys and francophone writers whose works have not been translated into English. Now available in paperback, its successor treats the explosion of publications by "new" writers of fiction and poetry as well as by authors who already had entries in the Companion-all these recent works described in considerable detail by William Toye. There are 42 new entries on subjects that include Christian Bok, Joseph Boyden, CNQ: Canadian Notes & Queries, Cormorant Books, Michael Crummey, Yann Martel, Lisa Moore, Michael Redhill, and Miriam Toews. With more than 1,000 entries that include many books published in 2010, this new edition offers a comprehensive look at the wealth of literature produced by Canadian writers.
