- A fresh group of writers, critics, booksellers, poets and novelists to heap scorn and vilification on Canadian icons such as Margaret Atwood, stuffy academics, feminist poets, Elspeth Cameron, contemporary literary theory, and The Canada Council. Contributors include Hugh Hood, Louis Dudek, William Hoffer, Brian Fawcett, Robin Skelton, Maggie Helwig, and Winslow L.D. Howard (who?). Vitriol, humour, and cynicism march together against the shibboleths of Canadian culture. All edited by John Metcalf, Canada's pre-eminent curmudgeon.
JOHN METCALF is a noted fiction writer, critic and editor. He lives in Ottawa, Ontario.
