Stag Line is a compelling anthology of short fiction that brings Canada's finest contemporary male writers together to explore the changing nature of masculinity.

Emerging male writers like Michael V. Smith and Richard Cumyn join such well-established authors as Graeme Gibson, Patrick Lane, Leon Rooke, Rudy Wiebe, and 1995 Governor General’s Award-winner Greg Hollingshead to offer up a rich smorgasbord of innovative variations on the age old question "what is a man?"

Reviews for Stag Line: Stories by men

"...well-crafted and intelligent. Sometimes provocative and occasionally funny, (the stories) provide insight into the male mind of the mid-1990s. As a whole, the stories convey the complexity of 'being a man,' without being apologetic or defensively aggressive."
