Future Tense: New English Fiction from Quebec

Edited by Raymond Beauchemin and Denise Roig

Despite the tensions Canadians hear and read about, Quebec's English-language literary scene has burgeoned over the past nine years. English fiction is a reality in Quebec. Future Tense is a delectable sampling of new short fiction writing. Included are stories by Julie Keith, George Szanto, Carolyn Marie Souaid, James Boothroyd, Robyn Sarah, Irene Friedman Karafilly, Teresa Jurkowski, Connie Barnes Rose, R. John Woolfrey, and F.C. Salevsky.

"These short stories exemplify creative writing at its best. All the authors show remarkable deftness in character portrayal. Their prose is supple, invariably conversational, and at times racy...Whatever the future may hold for the English language in Quebec, Future Tense makes enjoyable reading." -Edward Edmonds, Canadian Book Review Annual

Raymond Beauchemin edited the anthology 32 Degrees and has taught creative writing at Concordia University. Denise Roig is the author of the short story collection, A Quiet Night and a Perfect End, and the editor, with Raymond Beauchemin, of The Urban Wanderers Reader.
