They offer here a rich, rare view of being young, of being old, even of being a man. The stories in The Daythe Men Went to Town are about fisherwomen and aliens from space, the poig nancy of family life, and tragedy in the coal mines. They are about severalapproaches to love. They are entertaining, thought-provoking, and introduc e us to the new world of Canadian writing. Some of these writers have achieved fame, and several will be discoveries to you."
