This month at the Literary Review of Canada: me, actually

One of the reviewed
So you are sitting there digesting all that eggnog and Christmas cake, and someone else is getting out their first publication of 2022.

Which is to say that the Literary Review of Canada for January-February is now out, with "Building Worlds," my review of the 2021 Cundill History Prize nominees, included. 

Since the prize announcement was only made last December 2, you have to conclude that while the LRC may sometimes seem a little academic, its publishing timelines can be a lot faster than normal academic ones. (And so were mine, in this case anyway.) The issue also has a lengthy piece by Heather Ramsay on the British Columbia floods of November.

And much else, including a depressing review by Jeffrey Simpson declaring that Jody Wilson-Raybould's memoir shows her to have been an uppity young woman who did not have sufficient respect for her elders and betters in Ottawa. (Contrary viewpoint here.)
