Synopsis

Discover some of the great Canadian authors and titles you've been missing. This guide describes and organizes according to reading interests more than 500 of the best contemporary Canadian fiction titles available today. Canadian fiction offers a wealth of diverse pleasures to readers, from high-toned literary works to down-and-dirty genre fiction. However, apart from the big names and superstars, many of these authors are not well known outside of Canada. Designed to help readers' advisors in the United States, Canada, and other English-speaking countries make informed reading recommendations to their patrons, this guide provides readers' advisors and readers with an overview of Canadian fiction, covering more than 650 popular titles-mainstream and genre fiction- most published within the past decade. The guide categorizes mainstream titles according to primary appeal features (language, character, setting, and story), and identifies the secondary appeal when there is one. Genre fiction, covered in a separate section, is organized according to standard genres (fantasy, romance, etc.), with subdivisions for subgenres and themes.

For each title bibliographic information and a brief annotation is provided. Subjects are listed, along with awards, and an indication of whether the title is appropriate for book groups. A read on section with references to some 2,400 titles, leads you to titles with similar features. Indexes cover author/title and subject (including awards, genre, series character names). An appendix contains information on Canadian Book Awards. A readers' advisory guide and reference tool, this book is also an important aid for collection development.
