Long Way From Home is a passionate and evocative account of Kostash’s generation with whom she shared the struggle for change and the search for new values. The book has been a labour of love for one of Canada’s finest journalists and writers. Kostash pulls us back to a time when the whole world and particularly Canada was being profoundly influenced by American attitudes and events. But for Canada, the Sixties were profoundly different from the Sixties of America and it is this story that Myrna Kostash has written.
“[Myrna Kostash is] one of the New Left movement’s most sensitive Canadian commentators and herself a Sixties veteran.” Bryan Palmer, author of Canada’s 1960s
