Thanks for the invite to the group. I thought I’d start a new thread for CANADIAN WRITERS.

I know I am only scraping the surface with these suggestions, but other Canadian authors, books I have enjoyed include Jane Urquhart especially ‘Whirlpool’, Howard Norman’s “The Museum Guard”, and William Carpenter’s “A Keeper of Sheep”.

Alice Munro and Margaret Laurence are two more; although I've not read Laurence yet.

There is a thread on the Reading Globally group about Canadian writers; and you may have already found the discussion of the Giller Prize on the Prizes group (although I think it might be a bit old now....but you could update it!).

I finally got to my first Urquhart novel...Away, which was quite good - I think it evokes both Ireland and Canada quite well. I have been collecting Urquhart's writing for sometime but had previously only read her poetry (also quite good).
