William Hoffer on Canadian Literature (2)

Hoffer, William. List 75: Canadian Literature. Vancouver: William Hoffer Bookseller, Limited, 1990.

Occasional lists of Canadian literature will be published, but in future we will prefer to respond to lists of books required. There isn’t very much Canadian literature, and most of it is garbage. It is the junk literature of a junk age. It is beneath those who care about anything. The next Canadian literature list will be a list of literary periodicals, about which there is nothing to say except that they are or are not in the warehouse.
