Among them, one ventures to think, there are world voices. Margaret Atwood Although Margaret Atwood's writing style has changed over the years, it's still literal, vivid, and witty. He writes about the difficulties that Indian immigrants face when coming to Canada, and his characters are usually on a mission to find self-worth while dealing with difficult familial and social situations. Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets: Selected Poems Al Purdy One of the most influential and important poets ever to come out of Canada, Al Purdy published close to 50 books before his death in at the age of

Intuitive in her writing, she explores the darkest impulses of humanity in a frightening yet darkly funny way, often writing about drug dealers and serial killers—her greatest influences are Stephen King and David Cronenberg. Drummond found himself besieged with requests for speaking engagements, for magazine submissions, for more books. This volume contains brief but inclusive records of fifty men and women to whom song has come first. Roberts as members.

Whether with love and humour or rage and protest, Atwood tackles every incident, emotion and circumstance in its pages with equal grace, effectively skewering our most private, painful places with few words. He is candid about his opinions on the environment and First Nations issues, and he has a strong interest in Canadian-oriented activist concerns. When he died in at age 93, he had published over 40 books. We recommend Green Grass, Running Water, an exploration of the lives of a group of characters in a small Canadian town. And what reasonable man truly loves.
