Edited by Carolyn Foster
She Writes is an anthology featureing women writers in Canada. Elizabeth Ruth, Heather Birrell, Kristen den Hartog, Kelly Watt, Dana Bath, Teresa McWhirter and others make up this brilliant new collection of emerging literary voices in the landscape of Canadian literature by women.
In "Polish" Elizabeth Ruth deftly portrays the clash between mother and daughter, tradition and innovation. Ruth was shortlisted for both the 2001 Roger's Writer's Trust of Canada Fiction Prize and the Amazon.com/Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award 2001.
Another rising star, Suzanne Matczuk (winner of the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer 2002) weaves an intriguing tale of sisters and lies in a small Hungarian village in "Book of Lies." These are just a couple of the provocative, engaging and often humorous pieces of short fiction by young women writers that make up this collection.
