Should you write your novel in present tense? By. Mignon Fogarty. Today's topic is verb tense. This episode is a little unusual because I usually deal with topics that can be widely applied to fiction and non-fiction writing, but recently I was on a plane reading Seth Harwood's crime novel Jack Wakes Up, and I was struck by the fact that it was written in the present tense. That present tense writing really stood out the whole time I was reading the book and got me thinking about how people use tense in writing.

As you may have noticed, Canadian novels have shifted from being sternly realist to more expressionistic and fantastical. Anne Michaels’ Fugitive Pieces is no exception. The novel has since become an an international hit, and it is difficult to actually categorize this as a Canadian novel, since much of the plot takes place in the nation-less void of the Pacific. I would argue, though, that many of Martel’s sleights about the deceptive but redeeming aspects of storytelling possess a particularly Canadian flavor, and as many of the novels discuss, the journey to Canada is also an important facet of the formation of its culture heritage.

The novel never refers to Marley by name, but it portrays the foiled plot as being at the heart of a power struggle between rival political and criminal factions as well as in the nexus of regional and international struggles between communists and the CI. It’s hard not to wonder if the lack of such books in Canadian literature speaks to a deeper malaise: that English Canadians do not, fundamentally, see themselves as participating in a national society at all. Jeremiads about the failings of Canadian literature are as old as Canadian literature itself, and I recognize that when speaking of CanLit, I am, in some sense, invoking an abstraction.

Richard’s Ford Canada has a terrific beginning, a pure narrative hook: First, I’ll tell about the robbery our parents . For the novel’s interest doesn’t lie in the robbery itself but in the way that crime alters its narrator’s life, propelling this naïve but skeptical boy into his future.

Richard’s Ford Canada has a terrific beginning, a pure narrative hook: First, I’ll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then about the murders, which happened later. For many readers Richard Ford remains defined by the loping, digressive sentences and extended flashbacks of his Frank Bascombe novels, the New Jersey-based trilogy that began with The Sportswriter and continued with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Independence Day and ended with The Lay of the Land.
