John Glassco's Richer World by Philip Kokotailo
Book DescriptionShowing that Memoirs of Montparnasse is not the honest reminiscence John Glassco presents it to be, this volume compares the published book version of Memoirs to its holograph manuscript with the narrative energy of a psychological detective story. Like Frederick Philip Grove and Grey Owl, Glassco too has transformed himself into a person of his own creation. Literary subterfuge pervades not only the premise on which Memoirs of Montparnasse is founded, but also the dialogue, the plot structure, the characterizations, and the events that are supposed to have happened. This subterfuge contributes to establishing Glassco's distinctive position in Canadian literary history, that of a 20th-century successor to the literary dandies, aesthetes, and decadents of 19th-century England and France.
