The Winnipeg Connection: Writing Lives at Mid-Century
Why has Winnipeg produced so many outstanding writers? The Winnipeg Connection looks to the 1940s and 1950s to find an answer. This collection of personal essays and articles on writing, radio, music, television and filmmaking, as well as a selection of photos, depicts the Winnipeg of the mid-twentieth century.
“Winnipeg is a giving place. It gives energy and substance to creative effort. It receives in return an abundance of accomplishment. This book is nothing less than a portrait of Winnipeg as home: Winnipeg as a cultural home to its citizens, and to Canadians everywhere.” — Robert Kroetsch
Edited and with an introduction by Birk Sproxton
