Since Making a Difference was first published, then 'face' of mainstream Canadian literature has changed irrevocably with the rise to prominence of writers representing the spectrum of Canadian multicultural society. Nevertheless, the intricate questions raised by the politics of difference and of representation persist.
Now in its second edition, this landmark collection continues to address such questions by drawing poetry, fiction, life writing, creative nonfiction, and essays from more than 70 authors representing a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. After thoroughly reconsidering the contents, Smaro Kamboureli has introduced over 25 authors, many of them seldom anthologized elsewhere, to the already extensive collection of established writers. The result is a unique survey that stands as the most engaging and comprehensive anthology of Canadian multicultural literatures written in English.
