"Scann is a major novel by a major novelist.Working with Canadian materials in a very new Canadian way, Mr. Harlow est ablishes an idiom of time-structure and point-of-view intelligible to both traditional naturalists and the most avant garde of readers and writers. Bybowing neither to the genteel nor the hallucinated tradition, yet spanning and scanning both this book fixes a fulcrum in the present polarized situa tion of Canadian novelistcs. North is a language understood by all Canadians, but spoken by almost none. Scann is the best lexicon we have to date. Amory Scann is the consciousness and conscience of all north." - J. Michael Yates on dj flap. Ink stamps to flyleaf, else very good in spine-sunned, unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
