Winnipeg Connection, The
Writing Lives at Mid-Century
About this Item
In the 1940s and 1950s, Margaret Laurence, Jack Ludwig, Adele Wiseman, Patricia Blondal, John Marlyn and John Hirsch came of age to stand beside such distinguished predecessors as Marshall McLuhan, Dorothy Livesay, Sinclair Ross and James Reaney. The Winnipeg Connection brings the past alive through previously unpublished work by Chester Duncan, Margaret Laurence's 1949 poem "North Main Car" (on Winnipeg's fabled North End), a journal/poem by Patricia Blondal and Jack Ludwig's essay on the "Atrocity" uproar. Contributors Walter Swayze and Jack Bumsted, Christopher Dafoe and Dick Harrison, Meeka Walsh and Dawne McCance, Margaret Sweatman and Di Brandt, Tricia Wasney and Gene Walz, among others, challenge us to see Winnipeg in a new way. The book comprises articles and personal essays on writing, radio, music, television and filmmaking, as well as photos depicting the Winnipeg of the mid-twentieth century.
