“Collecting Stamps Would Have Been More Fun”: Canadian Publishing and the Correspondence of Sinclair Ross, 1933 – 1986. (Eds. Jordan and David Stouck)

My review of this book is over at the Winnipeg Free Press site.

One of the things I've forgotten about freelance writing is that editors alter your work. Normally it's not a big deal. But it does make me uneasy when I don't know their sources. For example, I don't know how my editor knows that these editors are a father and daughter team. I'm not saying he's wrong, just that things like this always make me uneasy since I've “written” something that I didn't really write. Not complaining, just a note on the phenomenon. It's much more comfortable in the world of literary publishing where the author is the real authority.
