Synopsis: "Going down the road" is part of the tradition of Atlantic Canada, but just as strong a tradition is coming back home for Christmas. When writers think of Christmas, home is on their minds, for better and for worse. Many of the stories in Home for Christmas relate to family, absent family or chosen families. A little sorrow, some ambivalence and a lot of joy visit Maritimers and Newfoundlanders at their Christmas tables. Following the success of Gifts to Last: Christmas Stories from the Maritimes and Newfoundland, Goose Lane is proud to present this all-new collection of Christmas stories. Like Gifts to Last, Home for Christmas contains stories by the region's finest writers, ranging from Lucy Maud Montgomery to Lynn Coady to Wayne Johnston. A few stories appear in Home for Christmas for the first time. Others are selected from books, including the funny yet poignant account of Hilda Porter's last Christmas from The Last Tasmanian by Herb Curtis and "Another Christmas," Ann Copeland's beautiful story of Sister Claire Delaney's first Christmas in the convent. Some authors, such as Maureen Hull and Kelly Cooper, are building strong reputations in literary periodicals, while others, including Harry Bruce and Mark Tunney, editor of The New Brunswick Reader, are journalists. In all, over 20 writers join their voices to make Home for Christmas express the wondrous variety of human nature and our longing for connection at Christmastime.
About the Author: Sabine Campbell co-edited Fiddlehead Gold, an anthology marking the 50th anniversary of Canada's oldest literary magazine. As managing editor of The Fiddlehead and a member of its editorial staff since 1985, she knows the work of almost every writer in and from the Maritimes and Newfoundland. She also loves Christmas.
