Beyond Borders – Fiction of Canada


Having sampled some of the regional fiction within our borders, it’s time to take a leap across the 49th parallel to Canada. Some Canadian authors are recognizable in the lower 48, such as L.M. Montgomery who wrote the Anne of Green Gables series or Margaret Atwood, the author of The Handmaid’s Tale and other dystopian novels. Many good Canadian reads, however, don’t seem to drift south. Here are some lesser-known recommendations from flashlightworthybooks.com.

The Colony of Unrequited Dreams by Wayne Johnston

Burden of Desire by Robert MacNeil

The Bird Artist by Howard Norman

The Stone Carvers by Jane Urquhart

A Boy of Good Breeding by Miriam Toews
