Evocation and Echo
edited by AvH and Conny Steenman-Marcusse
Beloved of readers and writers alike, Carol Shields was a formidable creative force. Author of dozens of books, she won a Pulitzer Prize and an Orange Prize, a Governor General’s award, and many other honours and recognitions. And this extraordinary writer’s work continues to inspire lovers of language from around the world. Carol Shields: Evocation and Echo gathers together a bouquet of literary responses. Critics, friends, and fellow writers from North America and Europe here respond to the writing of Carol Shields. Their observations, augmentations, and creative interventions make for a collection that pays homage to Shields, but nonetheless possesses its own distinctive flavour.
