The NY Times runs a story today on immigrant Canadian writers, including Caribbean-born writers like Austin Clarke (whose latest novel, The Polished Hoe, is up for a Giller Prize this year), Neil Bissoondath & Ramabai Espinet.

"One of the most surprising things about the surge of immigrant literature in Canada, even though many of the foreign-born writers sell well and have received critical acclaim, is how little comment their origins have among Canadian critics."
