April 16, 2006, Halifax). "'Among the Lions' is Harold Horwood's second volume of memoirs, following 1997's 'A Walk in the Dreamtime', which laid down the foundations of the literary life that continues here. From the writer's space out of which grew the acclaimed 'The Foxes of Beachy Cove', through Newfoundland's trip through the sixties, to the founding of the Writers' Union of Canada, Horwood illuminates a period when the literary culturesof Newfoundland and Canada were just beginning to flourish. Alive with enc ounters with writers such as Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn MacEwan, Margaret Laurence and Farley Mowat, the memoir is a testament to the pleasures, perils and cultural politics of the writing life." - from the front flap.
