Oh, Canada!

Canada has many well-known exports (think Pamela Anderson, Neil Young or the BlackBerry), but did you know that many current popular authors also hail from our neighbor to the north?

Margaret Atwood may well be the most recognizable name on the list of Canadian authors. Her works include The Blind Assassin and Oryx and Crake among others, but she is most recognized for her dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale.

Here are a few more with some of their most popular works.

Yann Martel Life of Pi; Beatrice and Virgil

Farley Mowat Never Cry Wolf; No Man’s River

Louise Penny A Trick of the Light; The Brutal Telling

Alice Munro The Love of a Good Woman; Away from Her
