Moosemilk, an old-time Canadian idiom meaning bootleg or homemade liquor, refers here to the variety and vintage of the work within these covers. Nine Moosehead Reviews and six Moosehead Anthologies saw publication between 1977 and 1999 ó a great store of spirits! Here is some of the best stuff, the most readable, memorable and intoxicating....

Mooseheads have been edited and produced from the beginning by Robert Allen and Steve Luxton, along with the many distillers, imbibers and runners who have inhabited or drifted through the lively writing scene of Montreal and the Eastern Townships. The selection in Moosemilk was made by writers reading writers. Thereís sex, death, farming, childhood and, of course, writing... always a connection to that vocation of pain and pleasure.


Critical Comment

ìAny reader of this collection cannot avoid being struck by its eclecticism.... Everything in it is of high quality and within each section we find a variety of styles and attitudes.... The anthology is recommended to anyone interested in contemporary writing.î
