"The Second Edition of The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature, published in 1997, was lauded as a landmark reference work. This updated concise version, about half its length, retains its informative coverage of major writers, significant works, and other aspects of the Canadian literary scene past and present. While most of the regional and genre surveys have been omitted, along with francophone writers whose books have not been translated into English, many of the 898 entries of The Concise Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature have been expanded by William Toye's descriptions of recent publications. He has also provided sixty-one new entries on writers and subjects that include Caroline Adderson, Lise Bissonnette, Stephanie Bolster, Wayson Choy, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Carole Corbeil, Alan Cumyn, Modris Eksteins, Cecil Foster, Ian Hacking, Elizabeth Hay, Wayne Johnston, Mercy Among the Children, Peter Oliva, Witold Rybczynski, Paul St. Pierre, Libby Scheier, Shyam Selvadurai, Russell Smith, and Margaret Visser."--Jacket
