Canadian Literary Power

Stephen Osborne

Somewhat more put-downable is Canadian Literary Power by Frank Davey (NeWest Press), which took me a week to read. This is a book filled with Serious Thinking, so of course it's slow, and I'm still not sure how much of it I can agree with. But when Davey puts his mind to questions of the of literary imagination and literary gatekeepers, you'll find yourself thinking about these things in new ways.
