Abstract: In making the point that no story is complete, O'Hagan undermines to varying degrees several dominant and interconnected Western ideologies: idealism, Christianity, patriarchy, class and capitalism. He also shows how a borrowed indigenous myth can be adapted to immigrant needs in a way that will distinguish Canadian novels from others.
