About the Author:

Terry Goldie teaches English Literature and Social and Political Thought at York University. He is the author of Fear and Temptation: The Image of the Indigene in Canadian, Australian and New Zealand Literatures (McGill-Queen’s, 1989), editor of In a Queer Country: Gay and Lesbian Studies in the Canadian Context (Arsenalpulp, 2001), and co-editor, with Daniel David Moses, of An Anthology of Canadian Native Literature in English (Oxford, 1998).

Review:

“The power of Terry Goldie’s Pink Snow is not to show us what we’ve always known, that some Canadian fiction writers have been gay or that they treat gayness in their work. Goldie shows us what it means to read from a gay perspective even when reading such canonical texts as Wacousta, As For Me and My House, Who Has Seen the Wind, The Mountain and the Valley, Beautiful Losers, or Fifth Business. No matter how well you think you already know these Canadian classics, you emerge from the pages of Pink Snow with a sense of fresh insights, and even, to paraphrase Goldie, of the queerness of much of Canadian fiction.” ― Russell Brown, University of Toronto at Scarborough
