Book Description

Among the Lions is Harold Horwood's second volume of memoirs, following 1997's A Walk in the Dreamtime, which laid down the foundations of the literary life that continues here. From the writer's space out of which grew the acclaimed The Foxes of Beachy Cove, through Newfoundland's trip through the sixties, to the founding of Writer's Union of Canada, Horwood illuminates a period when the literary cultures of Newfoundland and Canada were just beginning to flourish. Alive with encounters with writers such as Margaret Atwood, Gwendolyn MacEwen, Margaret Laurence and Farley Mowat, the memoir is a testament to the pleasures, perils and cultural politics of the writing life. Provocative and uncompromising as always, Horwood writes with the joy of one who has chosen his life and never regretted it..
