My name is Evan Buck and I am currently a graduate student in the Department of English and Writing Studies at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.

Beginning as part of a directed reading course with Dr. Donna Palmateer Pennee focused on newcomer Canadian literature, I will be using this blog to create critical commentary on – primarily recent – Canadian literature written by first- and second-generation immigrants to Canada.
