Controversially, to say the least, Gerald Lynch maintains that a version of it may already have been written - as a great Canadian short story cycle.

If only for the attention it pays to such under-appreciated texts as J. G. Sime’s Sister Woman () and George Elliott’s e Kissing Man (), Gerald Lynch’s e One and the Many: English-Canadian Short Story Cycles would be a worthy contribution to Canadian literary criticism. But the book offers much more than a championing of some neglected works. In his introductory chapter, Lynch argues that the story cycle is distinctly and distinctively a Canadian genre ()-perhaps even the Canadian genre-for a variety of material, literary, and broadly cultural reasons.

A short story cycle (sometimes referred to as a story sequence or composite novel) is a collection of short stories in which the narratives are specifically composed and arranged with the goal of creating an enhanced or different experience when reading the group as a whole as opposed to its individual parts. But many books have combined stories in such a way that the stories have varying degrees of interdependence, and it is these variations that cause problems in definition. p. 16. ISBN 0-8020-3511-6.

The search for the 'Great Canadian Novel' has long continued throughout our history. Controversially, to say the least, Gerald Lynch maintains that a version of it may already have been written - as a great Canadian short story cycle. In this unique text, the author launches into a fascinating literary-historical survey and genre study of the English-Canadian short story cycle - the literary form that occupies the middle ground between short stories and novels. This wide-ranging volume has much to say about the continuing relationship between place and identity in Canadian literature and culture.

Initially, Lynch employs Stephen Leacock's Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town for illustrative purposes, and begins by discussing two definitive features of short story cycles: the ways in which their form conveys meaning and the paramount function of their concluding stories, which are here called 'return stories.' Lynch then devotes five discrete but related chapters to six Canadian short story cycles, spanning some one hundred years from Duncan Campbell Scott to Thomas King, and tracing some surprising continuities in this distinctive genre. A number of the works are discussed extensively for the first time within the tradition of the Canadian short story cycle, which has never before been accorded book-length study in English. This engaging and intelligent volume will be of interest to the general reader as well as specialists in Canadian literature.
