published on the Canadian Writers Abroad website, run by Debra Martens. Some of you may recall that Debra interviewed me back in 2014 ahead of the release of my second novel, Sad Peninsula, and she asked if I would be interested in writing a review of Mount's book for her site, which of course I was.
Arrival is a look back at the "boom years" of CanLit, which Mount defines as between 1957, with the formation of the Canada Council, to about 1974. I liked his book a lot, and especially appreciated his honest capsule reviews (complete with star ratings) of many of the major titles published during this period. Definitely a work worth picking up. See the full review here.
