Cultural history: Fetherling on CanLit

George Fetherling's Travels by Night (1994) is the best account of the cultural ferment of late '60s and early '70s Toronto, when so much of CanLit was being assembled.

His new book promises to be equally valuable testimony to a much longer period of Canadian literary history through the eyes of a vital participant.  The Writing Life: Journals 1975-2005 launches tonight at Ben McNally's in Toronto.  Many Canadian writers will be wondering if they are discussed in it or, indeed, not discussed in it.
