Book Lists

Indebtedness (by Jared Bland)

"We all owe debts. Some are to mentors; some are to Visa. Writers, like all artists, are eternally in debt: to the books they borrow from, to the readers who support them, to the colleagues who inspire them, to the centuries of writers who’ve come before. In that spirit, what follows is a reading list of owing and being owed." Jared Bland is the managing editor of House of Anansi Press and sits on the board of directors of PEN Canada. He was formerly the managing editor of The Walrus, and is the editor of Finding the Words: Writers on Inspiration, Desire, War, Celebrity, Exile, and Breaking the Rules, a 2010 anthology published as a fundraiser for PEN Canada.
