Publisher’s opinion

"Homeland" is Alissa York's contribution to Northwords, a cross-platform project that takes urban Canadian writers to some of the world’s most extreme environments.

Introduced by award-winning journalist and radio personality Shelagh Rogers, Northwords is a collection of stories written by acclaimed Canadian authors as they experienced one of Canada’s most awe-inspiring northern national parks Torngat Mountains National Park, the country’s newest national park, and a place steeped in geological and human history. The cross-platform project, which includes a documentary film that follows the authors as they explored the harsh and stunning terrain, had adventures, and created these new works, adds to the continuing story of the North. The stories explore the idea of the North, and what happens when the country’s best writers tackle its most overwhelmingly beautiful places.

Taking advantage of opportunities presented by transmedia integration, users can experience the stories in the writers’ own words through Anansi Digital, as well as learn more about their processes and what inspired them through interactive content. Users will have access to film and audio content, and together, these related media will create a larger story web, allowing the audience to truly immerse themselves in the sights, sounds, and stories of the North.

Biography
Née en 1970 en Alberta, Alissa York a vécu un peu partout au Canada, de Winnipeg à Vancouver en passant par Montréal, avant de s’établir à Toronto avec son mari, l’écrivain et cinéaste Clive Holden. Elle a fait une entrée en littérature remarquée avec le recueil de nouvelles Any Given Power (Journey Prize 1999) et a gagné les faveurs d’un lectorat grandissant avec la publication de son premier roman, Amours défendues. Best-seller au Canada, salué unanimement par la critique, Effigie a confirmé le talent d’Alissa York, désormais considérée comme l’une des conteuses les plus originales des lettres anglo-saxonnes.
