Gifts to Last
Christmas Stories From the Maritimes and NewfoundlandBook - 1996
Christmas a-glitter, Christmas on a shoestring. Christmas wrecked. Christmas salvaged. Christmas in city, village and country, in church and shopping mall and barn - they're all here, in stories by the best writers in the Maritimes and Newfoundland. Walter Learning's Christmas treat opens with "Matthew Insists on Puffed Sleeves," from Anne of Green Gables. Stars such as Alistair MacLeod and Antonine Maillet join their voices with regional favourites including Herb Curtis, Deirdre Kessler, and Helen Fogwill Porter. Goose Lane's own adaptation of David Adams Richards's screenplay Small Gifts is published here for the first time. Grahame Woods's adaptation of Gordon Pinsent's pilot for the CBC-TV series A Gift to Last ends this fulfilling celebration.
