William Hoffer on Canadian Literature

Hoffer, William. “Cheap Sons of Bitches: Memoirs of the Book Trade.” Canadian Notes & Queries 51:1 (1997): 25-30.

I became a dealer in Canadian literature somewhat opportunistically, and because, when I first commenced bookselling, I was worried that I wouldn’t want to sell books that I actually liked. Canadian literature recommended itself. There was a market, a market I expected to grow greater, all things considered, and I certainly didn’t like it. (26-27)
