Review of Mary Dalton’s Edge in Atlantic Books Today

Simon Vigneault, in Atlantic Books Today, commends Mary Dalton’s Edge for its “thorough exploration of Newfoundland’s spoken culture, its suppression and renewal by varied figures, including [Dalton] herself, while ruminating on the edge between margin and centre.”

Says Vigneault, “Part of what is satisfying about Edge: Essays, Reviews, Interviews, perhaps particularly for writers, and any lover of literature, is Mary Dalton’s reflection upon herself, on her own process, what a writer or poet is. In this reflection there is a continual return to a sense of occupying an edge, whereby at one point she says, “Ambivalence is the best I can do.”
