(2 Ratings)
The dark side of the publishing world and nearly all the mistakes a writer could possibly make--is the subject of this literary and publishing memoir by an Indian with an American Dream. He lands up... More > in New York and "writes" for a literary agency, until he realizes that it's a scam exploiting innocent American and Canadian writers. He earns an MFA at Columbia University, attends numerous workshops and conferences including Breadloaf and Aspen, meets Tim O'Brien, John Irving, and Saul Bellow's agent, whereupon his career takes off . . . well, almost. Until the long nightmare begins. Gritty, unsparing, honest, and at times laugh-out-loud.

Among the Canadian Alps By Lawrence J. Burpee

Among the Canadian Alps, by Lawrence J. Burpee edited in 1914. Lawrence J. Burpee was a Canadian librarian, historian and author. He published many books and articles mainly related to Canadian... More > history and geography and was the founding editor of the Canadian Geographical Journal. "What is the peculiar charm of that mighty, snow-capped sea of mountains, whose stupendous waves tossed far into the heavens seem ever about to overwhelm the level wheat-fields of Western Canada? The lure of the mountains defies analysis, but it is surely there with its irresistible appeal to all in whom the spirit of romance is not quite dead. It stirs the blood strangely when, far out on the plains of Alberta, you get your first glimpse of the Canadian Alps—a line of white, glittering peaks just above the horizon, infinitely remote and ethereal, something altogether apart from the prosaic world about you of grain and cattle, neat farm-house and unsightly elevator."< Less

More > that have been handed down by oral tradition from some far-off past. They are mostly animal stories, with all the usual features of magic and transformation, articulate speech on the part of the animals, and interchange of more or less kindly offices between man and beast. The result is a collection of fables which—especially as illustrated by an eminent artist—will provide a book for children, and will give their elders also some food for reflection. Not that there is, so far as I have been able to discover, any moral about some at least of the tales. They are not "stories with a purpose." But they suggest to the adult reader the essential identity of many of the methods by which in a more or less remote antiquity the human race expressed itself in various parts of the world.< Less
