At the heart of Luminous Ink are questions around the work of words. What can the literature being written today tell us about Canada's social arrangements; about its political and aesthetic shapes and its preoccupations? The contributions to this anthology are catalytic and edgy, and they lay down the challenge of new thinking about what's come to be known as CanLit.
In stunning, forward-looking essays that are deeply rooted in the present, the writers gathered between the covers of Luminous Ink consider and reconsider the literary imagination. Their work lives up to the title of this vital anthology.
