About Unbound: Ukrainian Canadians Writing Home

Product Description What does it mean to be Ukrainian in contemporary Canada? The Ukrainian Canadian writers in Unbound challenge the conventions of genre – memoir, fiction, poetry, biography, essay – and the boundaries that separate ethnic and authorial identities and fictional and non-fictional narratives. These intersections become the sites of new, thought-provoking and poignant creative writing by some of Canada’s best-known Ukrainian Canadian authors. To complement the creative writing, editors Lisa Grekul and Lindy Ledohowski offer an overview of the history of Ukrainian settlement in Canada and an extensive bibliography of Ukrainian Canadian literature in English. Unbound is the first such exploration of Ukrainian Canadian literature and a book that should be on the shelves of Canadian literature fans and those interested in the study of ethnic, postcolonial, and diasporic literature. Review "This collection provides an interesting body of writing that explores ethnocultural identity in both theoretical and highly personal terms." (Sonia Mycak, Australian National University University of Toronto Quarterly, vol 87 3, Summer 2018) Review "Unbound: Ukrainian Canadians Writing Home is a book about what it means to belong to an ethnos, if not an ethnic community, in a globalized world, and how a sense of identification with one's ancestral past rubs up against one's present, creating sparks that can help fire the literary imagination. A postmodern mash-up of memories, critical reflections, creative ruminations, and pointed questions that probe the boundaries of one's own skin and sense of kin, the contributors' essays grapple with their conflicted identities with a frankness that is frequently uncomfortable, yet more often than not, liberating. Their craft and artistry provides food for thought that goes well beyond the stereotypes of borscht and cabbage rolls." (Jars Balan, Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta) About the Author Lisa Grekul is a novelist and associate professor in the Department of Critical Studies at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. Lindy Ledohowski is an educational leader and literary scholar. She serves on the board of trustees for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
