The Broken Social Scene Story Project
Foreword by Carl Wilson
Publication Date May 30, 2013
Thirteen short stories inspired by Broken Social Scene’s groundbreaking album, You Forgot It In People. With a foreword by Carl Wilson, author of Celine Dion’s Let’s Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste.
In celebration of both Arts & Crafts’ ten-year anniversary and You Forgot It In People, the acclaimed album that launched the record label and caused a sensation worldwide, House of Anansi launched the Broken Social Scene Short Story Contest.
More than four hundred works of short fiction from all across Canada were submitted to the contest, each inspired by one of the thirteen tracks from You Forgot It In People.
Featuring some of the best new voices in Canadian literature, this collection is for fans of music and literature alike.
Carl Wilson is the author of Let's Talk About Love, a book about aesthetic taste, class, democracy and Celine Dion, which Paste Magazine called the best music book of the decade. A new, expanded edition will be published in 2014. He's covered music in Toronto since 1999 for The Globe and Mail and at his website Zoilus.com and the group blog Backtotheworld.net, and has written and talked about music and culture in a wide range of other venues.
