Overview

The Journey Prize Anthology, in this ninth edition, brings together the finest new voices in Canadian fiction, and has established itself as the premier anthology of emerging writers in this country. This edition includes twelve exciting and wide-ranging stories. Among them:

In a haunting story, an elderly woman is enveloped in the disturbance and dislocation of a physical ailment as she confronts the memory of a deep personal loss suffered decades ago; the emotional equilibrium of a family shaken when a child brings wrongful punishment upon her older sister, foreshadowing tragedy in the world war to come; in an urban tale, written in powerful, idiomatic prose, a Guyanese immigrant looks back on the trials and tribulations of his first years in Canada when he shared an apartment in Toronto with two friends; faced with the loss of her father in a tragic accident, a young girl attempts to gain control of the world by imagining she can change reality with the strength of her will; a woman vividly recreates the day of her own birth when her mother, two weeks overdue, and a group of gossipy relatives assemble for a baby shower; hidden wounds from wartime are torn open when relatives from Germany spend their vacation with family in Canada during the summer of the Munich Olympics.

The co-winners of the $10,000 Journey Prize for 1997 were Gabriella Goliger for “Maladies of the Inner Ear” and Anne Simpson for “Dreaming Snow.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Even for a country used to superb short story writers like Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, and Mavis Gallant, this is impressive stuff.”
Globe and Mail

“A generous and timely acknowledgement of the importance of short fiction.”
Quill & Quire

“An annual burst of energy and insight.”
Canadian Forum

“The anthology is marked by variety, freshness, and in some cases, a search for new form or technique.”
Regina Leader-Post
