Hemingway to Atwood: An Anthology of Great Writers in the Toronto Star



This book is available in a digital format only.


Some of the greatest Canadian journalists of today, on some of the greatest writers of yesterday. That’s the conceit that binds Hemingway to Atwood: An Anthology of Great Writers in the Toronto Star. Fourteen current Star journalists, having each chosen a piece by a notable contributor from the past, explain in an essay how that writer inspired them. Star foreign affairs reporter Bill Schiller, for instance, argues that a 1923 news story about a Kingston prison bust “reveals a Hemingway on the road to greatness.” Hemingway to Atwood is a rich collection for lovers of history and the passionate journalism that continues to be a hallmark of the Toronto Star.
