The passage is a part from Barron's 6 GRE Practice Tests.
Yet if Coupland and his compatriots do not recognize their place in Canadian literature, Coupland does recognize himself as a Canadian writer who is intent on investigating the culture of his country through his art. Dedicating his book 'Souvenir of Canada' to his father, a more Canadian man is hard to imagine, Coupland adds, and to follow in his foot-steps is the deeplest of honors.
I don't know the exact meaning of this passage in that
What does 'yet if' mean in the first sentence?
What does "a more Canadian man is hard to imagine", "Dedicating his book to his father", or "the book 'Souvenir of Canada'" mean?
Coupland adds what? :( I hardly understand what the last sentence means.
