Overview

Emily Carr: A Biography is a remarkable portrait of one of Canada's most celebrated and fascinating artists, a critically renowned painter whose talents would only fully emerge in her late 50s, and a popular and award-winning writer first published at age 70. Emily Carr's life was filled with tension, between the conventions of society and her own originality, between her relationships with others and her often lonely struggle to overcome obstacles, between happiness and despair. Acclaimed writer and historian Maria Tippett has captured the essence of this complex life, weaving a narrative that is at once sympathetic and penetrating. Her masterful examination, which won the Governor General's Literary Award for Nonfiction and the Sir John A. Macdonald Prize for Canadian History, has been hailed as a classic.
