New Issue of the Literary Review of Canada

Does fiction have the power to transform readers? Yes, it does, says Keith Oatley in Why Fiction is Good for You in the July/August 2011 issue of the Literary Review of Canada. The latest issue also brings us reviews of Andy Lamey’s Frontier Justice: The Global Refugee Crisis and What to Do About It and Ruben Zaiotti’s Cultures of Border Control: Schengen and the Evolution of European Frontiers.

Also included in the issue are reviews of Philip Slayton’s Mighty Judgment: How the Supreme Court of Canada Runs Your Life, Norman Ravvin’s The Joyful Child, Wayne Lewchuk, Marlea Clarke and Alice de Wolff’s Working Without Commitments: The Health Effects of Precarious Employment and Walter S. DeKeseredy’s Violence Against Women: Myths, Facts, Controversies, among other works by more Canadian authors. The issue also features poetry by Torontonian Gillian Harding-Russell, Toronto-based Victoria Mohr-Blakeney and Moez Surani and Ottawa-born Tim Mook Sang.

In addition this month, Shawn Syms looks at the transformation of Canadian gay fiction in Modern Love, available exclusively online.
