Do they exist?

NO. There are none (except for mine. But I have not been able to get any publisher or agent to look at it yet.)

I repeat: there are no Left Wing Canadian novels.

Somebody tell me (please!) that I'm wrong. I've got to be wrong. I must have missed something somewhere. My search has been by no means exhaustive. I know of Left Wing Canadian poetry (e.g. Milton Acorn) Left Wing drama (e.g. David Fennario) but novels?

I write to provoke thee!

Have at thee, I say, oh vacuum land! Canada has produced no Lefty novelists at all. Somebody please slaughter me (verbally). It's the only way I'll learn.
