Such Is My Beloved (1934) is widely considered to be Callaghan’s finest novel. It tells the story of a young priest who tries to rescue two prostitutes, depicting a world where cynicism and betrayal are common but also where a divine love redeems the fallen.
The Oxford Book of Canadian Short Stories in English (1986), edited by Margaret Atwood and Robert Weaver, contains forty-one short stories written during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Authors include Mordecai Richler, Alice Munro, Sinclair Ross, Stephen Leacock, and Callaghan, as well as other, less well-known writers.
Alice Munro’s Selected Stories (1997) is a representative selection of the work of a Canadian writer considered one of the greatest contemporary short-story writers. Her subject matter is often the troubled lives of women in small-towns in Ontario, but her art transcends its rather narrow base and has universal appeal.
The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway: The Finca Vigia Edition (1998) is the definitive collection of Hemingway’s stories and can be used to compare his work with that of Callaghan, his friend and contemporary.
