New book offers contemporary stories inspired by historic Canadian paintings
Rather than analyze or interpret the art, these literary masters look deep inside each painting, crafting new layers of plot, setting, and emotion that feel at once entirely fresh and completely at home alongside these early-twentieth-century works.



VICTORIA.- This gorgeous full-colour art book includes works by the original Group of Seven—Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald, and Frederick H. Varley—as well as later members A.J. Casson, L.L. FitzGerald, and Edwin Holgate, plus their contemporaries Tom Thomson and Emily Carr. Each painting is accompanied by a short narrative—or “flash fiction” piece—written by critically acclaimed, award-winning authors, including Carol Bruneau, Waubgeshig Rice, Tamas Dobozy, and JJ Lee.

Rather than analyze or interpret the art, these literary masters look deep inside each painting, crafting new layers of plot, setting, and emotion that feel at once entirely fresh and completely at home alongside these early-twentieth-century works.

With a foreword by Sue and Jim Waddington, authors of the popular In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven, this innovative take on the Group of Seven is sure to inspire and delight Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

“These sharp, imaginative evocations of the world of the Group of Seven are both a joy in themselves and a welcome prompt to make us look at the paintings again.”—Ross King, author of Defiant Spirits: The Modernist Revolution of the Group of Seven.

“As a disciple of the Group of Seven and an aficionado of Canadian wilderness, every page gives me a little leap of pleasure.”—Robert Bateman

Born and raised in Montreal, Karen Schauber has called Vancouver home for the past three decades. Schauber cultivated a lifelong passion for the landscape paintings of the Group of Seven during her many visits to the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario, while she was a university student in Toronto in the early ’80s. Now, coupled with her obsession for flash fiction, her work appearing extensively in literary journals and anthologies including Brilliant Flash Fiction, Bending Genres, The Ekphrastic Review, and Fiction Southeast, she is thrilled to bring her two passions together in this unique blending of the literary and visual arts.
