Selected by editor Mireille Silcoff, the 2023 edition of Best Canadian Essays showcases the best Canadian nonfiction writing published in 2021."Our current, tumultuous age" writes editor Mireille Silcoff, "is an important time for essayists, because in moments of great change, it's good to have chroniclers with the presence of mind to step back and assess." Silcoff's selections for Best Canadian Essays 2023 do just that. In examinations of identity--personal, familial, racial, and cultural--and investigations of the far-reaching shockwaves of war; in mediations on illness and health, belonging and alienation, parents and children; in unexpected arguments about novel-writing, Donald Trump, and the Filet-O-Fish sandwich, the essays gathered here chart all kinds of boundaries, comprising, as Silcoff terms it, "a small bid for understanding that a border, a line drawn, need not be only the beginning or the end of something. That a frontier can be a place--indeed is the best place--for a conversation between sides to begin."Featuring works by: Jamaluddin Aram - Sharon Butala - Kunal Chaudhary - Christopher Cheung - Emma Gilchrist - Michelle Good - Paul Howe - Jane Hu - Heather Jessup - Chafic LaRochelle - Stephen Marche - Kathy Page - Tom Rachman - M.E.
