Miss Elva
Stephens Gerard Malone
Stephens Gerard Malone wrote this novel years ago, couldn't find a publisher for it and tucked it away in a cedar chest in the basement. It finally saw the light of day this year, and a good thing, too. It's an unsentimental story based loosely on the life of Maud Lewis, that much-fetishized folk artist. Malone turns his flinty eye on the violence and poverty that were ingrained in Lewis's life, as well as the casual racism of small-town Nova Scotia. It's an unexpected treatment of a well-worn story, and definitely worth reading for that alone.
