Morley Callaghan in the news...

Here is a brief exerpt from the Globe and Mail article,
"Pertinent context is provided by introductions by four writers: Alistair MacLeod, André Alexis, Anne Michaels and Margaret Atwood. Atwood's piece is the best short essay on Callaghan I've seen, as she explains succinctly who he was, as both artist and Canadian social phenomenon. And MacLeod's comment that, for Callaghan, "the aim of good writing" is "to simply reveal the truth" points up how anachronistic his project would seem to many today, when the idea of truth itself has become problematic, let alone the possibility of its being unequivocally revealed in fiction."
