The "Mother Jones" of Canada, This Magazine has showcased magnificent critical writing for more than a decade. Through various articles and in its Female Complaints column, writers of the calibre of Margaret Atwood, Susan G. Cole, Timothy Findley, Katherine Govier, Myrna Kostash, Linda McQuaig, and Libby Scheier have explored and exposed a broad spectrum of women's issues, concerns and experiences.
In Twist and Shout, Susan Crean, journalist, author, and This Magazine editor, has taken thirty-five of the best pieces and created a document which paints a provocative and compelling picture of women in contemporary society as seen by some of its most astute observers.
