Description

The first multi-genre historical anthology of Alberta writing since 1979, The Wild Rose Anthology of Alberta Prose collects twentieth-century short fiction, excerpts from novels, and non-fiction. This anthology explores what writers-past and present-can tell us about what it means to be Albertan-and Canadian. Each piece is preceded by an introduction with a literary biography and critical discussion of the selection that situates the piece within the author's overall repertoire.
