Forget Maclean's and Hockey Night in Canada

| July/August 1999

Forget Maclean's and Hockey Night in Canada. Our northern neighbor is nowhere rendered so clearly as in the pages of Geist, and we're not talking stoic Manitoba farmers or tragic Newfoundland fishermen. Geist's Canada is wry, quirky, seamy around the edges. Populated by raconteur bus drivers and pornographers, bookslingers and mall rats, the eight-year-old Vancouver-based quarterly deploys the standard arsenal (essays, memoir, fiction, poetry, photography) but veers regularly into farce ('If Michael Jackson Was Canadian'), fantasy ('The Philosopher's Map of Canada'), and fatalism ('Dead Mall'). You don't have to be a Canada-phile to appreciate the 'Great Canadian Haiku Contest' and 'Ideology of the Canoe'; in fact, it's probably helpful if you're not.Geist, 1014 Homer St. #103, Vancouver, BC V6B 2W9.
