Gwethalyn Graham is the latest subject to warrant a place in the Women Who Rock series. Recipient of a Governor-General's Literary Award for both her 1938 novel, Swiss Sonata, and her 1944 novel, Earth and High Heaven, Graham was part of Montreal's ...
intellectual community in the 1930s and 40s. She was a socio-political writer at a time when few Canadian novelists were creating works in this vein, and was a remarkably accomplished and inspired woman who defied convention and challenged contemporary prejudicial thinking. She is accessibly and eloquently presented here in a literary biography as a passionate woman who fought for freedom and tolerance throughout her life.
