Description

The Best Canadian Essays 2009 features fourteen essays selected from various Canadian magazines. Anita Lahey on the last days of a Montreal convent, Alison Lee on the new face of porn, Nathan Whitlock on fiction in Canada, and Kamal Al-Solaylee on Canadian theatre are just a few of the cultural topics, while essays by Chris Wood, Lori Theresa Waller, and Chris Turner cover the hot topics of energy needs and the environment. Selected by Carmine Starnino and Alex Boyd, these essays demonstrate the outstanding quality of Canadian writing, as well as Canadian thinking.
