Foran on nonfiction writing

Canadian Notes and Queries, with its now whimsical name and eccentric high-literary/low-income sensibility, has something surprising in nearly every issue. I subscribed on a whim of my own and have not regretted it.

This time it is Charles Foran's essay on the economics of nonfiction writing in Canada, and the problem of underfunded and"thin"books due to the sheer implausibility of having a writing and publishing culture in this country.
