Canadian Writers at Work features ten interviews from "Canadian Fiction Magazine", a unique Canadian literary quarterly devoted solely to fiction. Margaret Atwood, Clarke Blaise, Mavis Gallant, Jack Hodgins, Robert Kroetsh, Bharati Mukherjee, Alice Munro, Leon Rooke, Jane Rule, and Josef Skvorecky discuss their work, their narrative strategies, and the growth of a major literaure. For many of these writers, Geoff Hancock's interview was the first in-depth discussion of their fiction. Hancock asks about the pressures placed on the art of fiction by the contemporary world, modernist and post-modernist techniques, the influence of biography, and the morality of art. Hancock's unique position as an editor and publisher of innovative short fiction enables him to engage in stimulating conversation with some of Canada's most creative and respected writers. Together, these interviews, many previously out of print, constitute a fresh and invigorating debate on the nature of Canadian literature.
