FOR FANS OF CONFESSIONAL MEMOIR: And young writers like Patricia Lockwood who tackle deeply personal, relatable material that comes from their own experiences of early adulthood. Like Lockwood, Maxymiw’s ear for dialogue is incredible, and her voice is intimate, and engaging, and she writes with rare insight and clarity that will force readers to consider their own experiences anew.
OPPORTUNTY TO REACH BEYOND ONE DEMOGRAPHIC: This honest, unglamorous look at what it’s like to work in a wilderness lodge is perfect for millennial readers, a phase of life where a summer of work away is a present reality. But there’s also opportunity to reach beyond that readership because this book will be deeply relatable for those in their thirties and up—in particular, it’s a book for people who have fond memories of a “summer away” when they were younger, whether it’s tree-planting or working as a camp counsellor.
EXQUISITE WRITING ABOUT THE NATURAL WORLD: This book is for readers of Kate Harris’s Lands of Lost Borders and Kathleen Winter’s Boundless and any reader who appreciates vivid, beautiful descriptions of the natural world.
M&S’S ENERGETIC, TALENTED YOUNG NON-FICTION WRITERS: Anna Maxymiw is one of a handful of dynamic new writers. She’s very well connected, savvy, and will be a strong promoter of her work on social media and everywhere else.
Advance praise for Anna Maxymiw and The Lodge:
With vivid, lyrical prose, and sparkling storytelling, Maxymiw takes readers deep into the boreal forest and far out of their comfort zones—something they’ll certainly be thankful for. At times humorous and heartfelt, and at others harrowing and humiliating, The Lodge is a fresh look at resiliency, camaraderie, and the enduring beauty of the wild, told by a passionate new voice in Canadian literature."—Stacey May Fowles
