Her Own Thinker

Her Own Thinker

By Christl Verduyn

Her Own Thinker: Canadian Women Writers as Essayists explores the thinking, ideas, and insights that Canadian women fiction writers have chosen to express in essay form rather than in fiction form. It looks at this substantial body of writing with a primary focus on collections of essays, and on those published since the 1960s. In all, it considers over 40 collections, offering an overview and appreciation of this generally overlooked work and its contributions to cultural and intellectual thinking in Canada.
