Now available in paperback, The L.M. Montgomery Reader assembles rediscovered primary material on one of Canada's most enduringly popular authors, spanning the entirety of her high-profile career and the years since her death.

The second volume, A Critical Heritage, narrates the development of L.M. Montgomery's critical reputation in the years since her death. It traces milestones and turning points such as adaptations for stage and screen, posthumous publications, and the development of Montgomery Studies as a scholarly field. The introduction also considers Montgomery's publishing history in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom at a time when her work remained in print not because it was considered part of a university canon of literature, but simply due to the continued interest of readers.

Each volume in The L.M. Montgomery Reader is accompanied by an extensive introduction and detailed commentary by leading Montgomery scholar Benjamin Lefebvre that traces the interplay between the author and the critic, as well as between the private and the public Montgomery.
