The landscapes and cityscapes of western Canada are intensely rich and varied, from Calgary is brash youthfulness to the timeless yellow fields of Saskatchewan, to Vancouver's infamous downtown East side. Out of the West spends an hour with six of the finest literary voices west of the Great Lakes and north of the US border. These writers talk about their writing, their lives as artists, and the way the place they call home informs and inspires both. Featured writers include: Nancy Lee “Dead Girls”; -- Fred Stenson “The Trade”; --- David Bergen “The Case of Lena S.”, “See the Child and The Time in Between”; --- Aritha Van Herk “Judith”, “The Tent Peg”, “No Fixed Address: An Amorous Journey”; --- Timothy Taylor “Prize Anthology”, “Stanley Park”; --- Sharon Butala - “Luna”, “The Fourth Archangel”, “Garden of Eden”, Queen of Hearts”, “Fever”.
