First published in 1997, Inventing Memory is about four generations of remarkable women from a Jewish-American family-their triumphs, tragedies, scandals, and love affairs-as related by Sara Solomon, the youngest of these women. While trying to chronicle their history, the story becomes essentially hers, as she comes to understand the nature of memory, the way all of us both invent and assimilate our ancestors. In learning about the women in her family, Sara discovers how to create her own future.

Toronto has over 600 public outdoor sculptures, works of art that provide a sense of the rich variety of life and work in the city, its peoples, cultures and aspirations. Interest in commissioning public sculpture began slowly in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, but increased rapidly after the 1950s.This is a book about the sculptures and how they disclose the city to itself. Creating Memory’s two introductory sections examine the factors behind this expansion over time and the changes in style as one generation of sculptors succeeded another. It looks at the reasons behind the changes as sculptures were conceived, sculpted and erected. More than 10 categories of sculptures are defined and discussed, including Founding the City, Natural Environment, Immigration, Ethnic Groups, Economic Activities, Disaster and Calamity, War And Conflict, Leaders, Ordinary Citizens, Community Life, and Works of the Imagination.

This book considers the English Civil Wars and the civil wars in Scotland and Ireland through the lens of historical fiction—primarily fiction for the young. The text argues that the English Civil War lies at the heart of English and Irish political identities and considers how these identities have been shaped over the past three centuries in part by the children’s literature that has influenced the popular memory of the English Civil War. Examining nearly two hundred works of historical fiction, Farah Mendlesohn reveals the delicate interplay between fiction and history.

Rosemary Sullivan is the preeminent literary biographer in Canada, having won several major awards, including the Governor General's Award, for her work. She has written about Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Smart, Theodore Roethke and Gwendolyn MacEwan. But in addition to the books she has written, she has penned hundreds of essays, memoirs and travel pieces. This collection brings together the best of these pieces. In these 17 essays, Rosemary Sullivan focuses on Atwood's childhood, meeting the eccentric and enigmatic Elizabeth Smart and hooking up with the boisterous Canadian poet Al Purdy. She also writes about the life of a literary biographer, what it takes to put together an anthology, like in Cuba, human rights and feminist issues. The writing is held together by Rosemary Sullivan's own personal stamp and personality. At times, the work is lyrical, which reflects the author's poetic background. Other times, Sullivan plays the scholar, but she is never pedantic. The work is lively, insightful and illuminating.
