The Bull Calf

Reviews of Fiction, Poetry, and Literary Criticism

The Bull Calf 2.2

Editors' Note

Here, at last, is the second issue of The Bull Calf's 2012 run. In the last four months, we've undergone some noteworthy changes. Chief among these is the addition of two new members to our team: Michèle Rackham Hall (our new editor) and Terry Gitersos (our new site manager). As well, Claudine Gélinas-Faucher has taken over as our new French Submissions Editor; any requests to review a French text should be addressed to her. 

This issue might be our most diverse one yet: we have reviews of award-winning books such as Phil Hall's Killdeer, a review of a new volume by Canadian expat Jason Polley, Michèle Rackham Hall's assiduous review of two books about Canadian art history, reviews of authors who've gained some literary celebrity as of late (such as David McGimpsey and Zoe Whittall), and reviews of authors like Arley McNeney, who are newer to the Canadian literary scene. 

As well, in honour of the late Andrew Suknaski (July 1942 - May 2012), this issue includes a retrospective on Wood Mountain Poems (1976), Suknaski's breakthrough volume and a poetry collection that in many ways defined prairie publishing during the 1970s. 

As always, if you or your publisher wish to send us books for review, please send them to:
