Good Reads Books by Lola Lemire Tostevin
Literary Encyclopedia Essay written by Shelley Boyd, McGill University:

"A Franco-Ontarian, Tostevin writes primarily in English, but her inclusion of French within her writing and her strong interest in feminism have enabled critics to discuss Tostevin’s work in the context of both English Canadian writers, such as Daphne Marlatt, and Quebec writers, such as Nicole Brossard and Gail Scott."

When Lola Lemire Tostevin taught creative writing at York, her standard advice was: “Write what you know." After returning this fall to present her latest novel, The Other Sister, for the Canadian Writers in Person series, she would now add, "but not necessarily everything you know.”
