“One of the Fall’s biggest books.” — Quill & QuireChris Gudgeon (Song of Kosovo)
“A sly, frequently amusing and penetrating distillation of estrangement and social chaos set during the Balkan wars of the late 1990s . . . This is not an attempt to reproduce the tragedy of war with documentary zeal; rather it is a literary journey emboldened by wit and artifice, a perfectly executed literary conceit.” — BC BookworldCorey Redekop (Husk)
“Editor’s Choice” – Amazon.ca

and Barry Webster (The Lava in My Bones)
“A vast, exuberant and optimistic epic about the ebbs and flows of the lava-like oils that lubricate the world’s engine.” — National Post

Author Event: Douglas Gibson's "Stories About Storytellers"

Announcements | Canadiana

Meet your favourite authors as Mount Allison presents Stories About Storytellers
 Mount Allison University is offering a unique opportunity to see a new side of some of your favourite authors as it presents Stories About Storytellers: An Evening with Doug Gibson and many famous Canadian authors on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Owens Art Gallery.

Gibson, who was the editor and publisher at McClelland and Stewart from 1988 to 2004, worked with some of Canada’s most beloved writers, including Alice Munro, Robertson Davies, W. O. Mitchell, Alistair MacLeod, Pierre Trudeau, Mavis Gallant, Brian Mulroney, Bob Hunter, James Houston, Morley Callaghan, John Kenneth Galbraith, and Peter Gzowski, among others.

With humour, a flair for performance, and backed by caricatures of each author created by The Globe and Mail editorial cartoonist Anthony Jenkins, Gibson shares stories about 21 different authors he got to know well over the course of his career.

“During his time as editor and publisher at McClelland and Stewart, Doug Gibson worked with a who’s who of Canadian literature,” says Dr. Christl Verduyn, professor of English and director of Mount Allison’s Centre for Canadian Studies. “He brings unique insight and perspective to their work, having shepherded their writings from draft to final copy.”

The stage show is based on Gibson’s book, also titled Stories About Storytellers. The evening will begin with a chance to meet Gibson over dessert and his hour-long presentation will follow. Presented in collaboration with the Frye Festival, this event is free and open to all those interested.

Tidewater Books will be selling at the event.
