From Franz Boas to Alice Munro: welcome to an unprecedented panorama of the most significant authors and books of British Columbia culled from Alan Twigg's unrivalled knowledge of more than two centuries of B.C. literary history. The Essentials is the new bible of who wrote what, and why, in B.C., produced with the cooperation of Simon Fraser University Library and UBC's Rare Books & Special Collections. Alan Twigg, publisher/writer of B.C. BookWorld, also created the abcbookworld public reference site with information on more than 9,500 B.C. authors. The Essentials is the fourth and largest volume of his Literary History of British Columbia.
Alan Twigg, publisher and editor of 'B.C. BookWorld', is the author of eight previous books, including 'Cuba: A Concise History for Travellers, Intensive Care' (a volume of poetry), and 'Twigg's Directory of 1,001 B.C. Writers'. His articles have appeared in the 'Globe and Mail, Maclean's', the 'Toronto Star', the 'Georgia Straight', and the 'Vancouver Sun'. He lives in Vancouver.
