Best Canadian Stories

 

I've just learned today that the first story in Kathleen Winter's short fiction collection boYs, 'You can keep one thing', has been selected for inclusion in an upcoming volume of Best Canadian Stories. Congratulations. The lead story in this fall's collection, it's a tale of culture shock, of a family that moves from England to Newfoundland, told in the voice of the young and naively perceptive heroine Maggie Carter.

This is not the first Biblioasis author to make the Best Canadian cut. Leon Rooke's novella Balduchi's Who's Who -- which was the first Biblioasis short fiction chapbook, and in my opinion the best thing he's ever written -- was selected by Douglas Glover for the current (2006) anthology. Patricia Young's story 'Hapless Girl' -- as yet unpublished, but hopefully destined for her second Biblioasis short fiction collection -- will appear in this year's anthology.

Speaking of Patricia Young, she has been selected as the 2007-2008 writer-in-residence at the University of New Brunswick. Another of her stories, 'Pool Man,' will be appearing in the next issue of the Fiddlehead.

Kathleen,

Now that you're uber busy with your craft, I'm wondering if you've taken the phone off those useless hours of the day, personally speaking, - 2-6 - for I gave a lil' *ring* yesterday and it was quite busy there.

Let me know a time when things wind down, if they do, and I'd love to come for tea.

take care,
robert

It's Wednesday and I've come down with rotten cold - I need to make another teatime. How about next Thursday, the 24th, at 2:30?

The teapot will be on at 2:30 and I think older daughter will be home soon after that, by about 3:15.
