"Marian Engel: Life in Letters captures Marian Engel's life as a writer, a narrative that spans her youthful travels in Europe to her early death in 1985. In addition to the letters sent to her friends, this collection includes letters by Engel to critics, to editors, to granting officers, to publishers, and a brilliant letter to a chief librarian lambasting him for, among other things, the library's prejudice against 'Domesticity.' Accompanied by insightful commentary, these letters are rich in detail, filling in the fine points in the life not only of one Canadian writer, but of a nation of writers."--Jacket.
