Swamp Angel
Ethel Wilson

Oct 1990
Paperback

Book Description
Walking out on a demoralizing second marriage, Maggie Lloyd leaves Vancouver to work at a fishing lodge in the interior of British Columbia. But the serenity of Maggie’s new surroundings is soon disturbed by the irrational jealousy of the lodge-keeper’s wife. Restoring her own broken spirit, Maggie must also become a healer to others. In this, she is supported by her eccentric friend, Nell Severance, whose pearl-handled revolver – the Swamp Angel – becomes Maggie’s ambiguous talisman and the novel’s symbolic core.

Ethel Wilson’s best-loved novel, Swamp Angel first appeared in 1954. It remains an astute and powerful study of one woman’s integrity and of the redemptive power of compassion.

George Bowering and Ryan Knighton get it right: every car is a story; every car ride is a long poem.

Book Description
It's not where you're going but how you get there: George Bowering, one of Canada's Grand Prix writers, and Ryan Knighton, new to the race, together spin a series of car stories that weave into an auto biography. Now, these aren't your ordinary boys-and-cars stories. George likes to drive pretty slowly, and Ryan, who is now blind, doesn't drive at all. But they take turns in the literary driver's seat, bantering and fender-nudging so their stories tangle like a BC highway. Whether boiling fish in the radiator, jousting with a forklift or cabbing with Doris Lessing: in one hundred panels (that's fifty each), George and Ryan tell their tales of life by the dashboard...
