The embattled nonpareil of Canadian fiction. The Argus-eyed editor. The magisterial prose stylist and indefatigable correspondent; the waggish, inflammatory cultural critic; the idealist, the iconoclast, and the legend. Join John Metcalf as he descends into the literary underground he laboured so tirelessly to establish, and whose denizens - from Alice Munro to Mavis Gallant - often emerged as the greatest writers of their time.
