The great Canadian cottage novel

On the (near) eve of this long weekend, check out my new post at Canadian Bookshelf, and help us answer the question: does the great Canadian cottage novel have yet to be written?

    (The link takes you to your last post.)

      Fixed! Thank you.

    It’s not all cottage, but Mordecai Richler’s “Joshua Then and Now” would be on my list.

    I’d recommend David MacFarland’s Summer Gone for its bittersweet evocation of the languid and dangerous days of summer.

    I see you mentioned “A Handful of Time” in your review. I loved that book!

    I was also going to mention “My American Cousin,” which does not take place at a cottage per se, but has that cottagy feel. The other drawback is it’s a movie, not a book. oops!

    1. Kerry says:

      I loved A Handful of Time too– Kit Pearson was a favourite of mine back in the Scholastic Book Order days. And yes to My American Cousin! It should be a book…

  5. Em says:

    I can’t see your post: the link takes me to a home page indicating that the site will be launch on the 7th of June… Should I just be patient?

    1. Kerry says:

      Yes, indeed, patience is required! Our pre-launch blog has come down as we await the real thing. But it will be back up when the site launches on Tuesday (along with so much more!).
