A Celebration of Matt Cohen

Editor, with Graeme Gibson, Wayne Grady and Dennis Lee

Uncommon Ground

Matt Cohen’s thoughtful reserve, along with his charm and dazzling, absurdist humour made him a rather paradoxical figure in Canadian letters. An author of more than forty books, he was among the most prolific of his generation.

Uncommon Ground gathers together a stellar group of writers from Canada and abroad to examine the impact of Matt Cohen’s legacy. The thirty-two spirited, penetrating, sometimes quirky contributions range from incisive commentary on the books to funny and luminous memories of the man. This is the indispensable companion to reading Matt Cohen.
