LEVINE, Norman, (ed.). Canadian Winter's Tales. Toronto and London: Macmillan of Canada, (1968). First Printing. Pp. (10),1-172,(2). 8vo, red cloth with cream decoration to front, and cream lettering to front board and spine."The challenging demands of the short story are skilfully met in this bril liant volume of contemporary Canadian prose. Norman Levine, an accomplishedwriter himself, has assembled a group of gifted contemporaries. It begins with the late Malcolm Lowry's 'Under the Volcano', a story with a strange, hypnotic power, which contains the embryo of his famous novel. Margaret Laurence contributes a fine and sensitive story similar in mood and texture toher latest novel, 'A Jest of God' [in 'A Bird in the House']. Morley Calla ghan, an acknowledged master of the form, once again displays his great skill with an evocative piece entitled 'It Must Be Different'. Ethel Wilson's 'Mr. Sleepwalker' with its haunting and delicate beauty is a compelling tale of triumph. Adding their rich and varied talents are Brian Moore [with 'Uncle T'], Mordecai Richler [with 'Playing Ball on Hampstead Heath'], Mavis Gallant [with 'The End of the World' (Grant & Malcolm, Mavis Gallant : An Annotated Bibliography B120)], Hugh Hood [with 'The End of It'], and Norman Levine [with 'I'll Bring You Back Something Nice']. This exciting and impressive collection speaks with many voices while eloquently reminding us in single, ringing tones that the distinctive short story is still alive and vital." - from the dustjacket.
