Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The biographies run about 1,000 to 2,000 words and are cleanly laid out and serviceable, with the authors portrayed in head-and-shoulder drawings. The writers of these biographies are often the top scholars in the field—Linda Hutcheon on Leonard Cohen, Peter Buitenhuis on E. J. Pratt—and so the calibre of writing and commentary is high.” —Canadian Materials

“These books are ideal reference tools for the small but growing reference collection on Canadian studies.” —American Reference Books Annual
