Bad Endings by Carleigh Baker

Accordéon by Kaie Kellough

Carleigh Baker likes to make light in the dark. Whether plumbing family ties, the end of a marriage, or death itself, she never lets go of the witty, the ironic, and perhaps most notably, the awkward. Despite the title, the resolution in these stories isn’t always tragic, but it’s often uncomfortable, unexpected, or just plain strange.

The Ministry of Culture wants to control the flying canoe. Accordéon is the testimony of an anonymous witness. It is a satire in which fantasy and reality are enmeshed, and the past, the present, and the future exist simultaneously. Finalist for the 2017 Amazon First Novel Award.

Somewhere a Long and Happy Life Probably Awaits You by Jill Sexsmith

Everything Is Awful and You’re a Terrible Person by Daniel Zomparelli

Somewhere a Long and Happy Life Probably Awaits You explores the peculiar places we look for validation, a purpose, a life we might recognize as wholly our own. As her off-kilter heroes and heroines struggle with relationships, Sexsmith deftly cuts through raw and intimate moments to show how strangely impervious to their desperate circumstances people can be.

In these unconventional, interconnected stories, gay men look for love in any way possible. From social media to finding someone within a dream, the ways in which these characters search for joy becomes both limitless and overwhelming. With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the 21st century.

1979 by Ray Robertson

Blue Field by Elise Levine

Tom Buzby is 13 years old and lives in Chatham. Set in the year that real newspaper headlines told of the rise of Reagan and North America’s hard turn to the right, 1979 is a novel of innocence not so much lost as smashed, and experience gained the hard way—the kind that brands memories forever and permanently changes lives.

Recalling the best of Mary Gaitskill and Lidia Yuknavitch, this gripping, tense novel explores the tangled lives of three driven risk-addicts—deeply flawed people bound and propelled and ultimately unraveled by desire, loss, and guilt. The novel’s heightened sexual atmosphere and psychological distress immerse the reader in a world of unforgettable depth and darkness.

In the Cage by Kevin Hardcastle

Blood Fable by Oisín Curran

Daniel is one of the most feared cage fighters in Mixed Martial Arts, closing in on greatness until an injury ruins his career. He and his wife, Sarah, struggle to secure a better life for their daughter, but in this violent and unpredictable world of backcountry criminals and county cops, Daniel sparks a conflict that can only be settled in blood.

In 1980, a utopian Buddhist community on the coast of Maine called New Pond is on the verge of collapse. To distract his parents and himself from their collective troubles, an 11-year-old boy claims to remember his own life before birth. His purported memory is an epic tale about the search for a lost city refracted through the lens of the adventure stories he loves.

Rich and Poor by Jacob Wren

One For the Rock by Kevin Major

Who hasn’t, at one time or another, considered killing a billionaire? Rich and Poor is a novel of a man who washes dishes for a living and decides to kill a billionaire as a political act. It is literature as political theory and theory as pure literary pleasure—a spiralling, fast-paced parable of joyous, overly selfaware, mischievous class warfare.

Sebastian Synard doesn’t want any more trouble than he already has. But when he leads a group of tourists along the cliffs of St. John’s harbour, one of them ends up dead. Not only is there a murderer in his tour group, but the cop assigned to the case is sleeping with Sebastian’s ex-wife. The trail leads deeper than expected, and Sebastian finds himself on the edge.

Wild Rose by Sharon Butala

Deer Life by Ron Sexsmith

Wild Rose, an epic story of the West, now long gone, charts Sophie’s journey from underloved child in religion-bound rural Québec, to headstrong young woman to exhausted homesteader to deserted bride and mother to independent businesswoman finding her way in a hostile, if beautiful, landscape. Sophie’s West comes vividly alive in the pages of Butala’s most unforgettable novel.

Deryn was not having a very good day and it was about to get worse. He’d read stories of witches as a boy, never believing they were true. Until the accident. Deer Life tells the story of a kind-hearted boy from Hinthoven and his mother’s undying love. Mostly, though, it’s about patience, friendship, and heroism where you least expect it.

Herb Carter’s days as an aspiring rock star are over. His mother no longer remembers his name and seems trapped in the past.

Full Curl: A Jenny Willson Mystery by Dave Butler

Undertow: A B.C. Blues Crime Novel by R.M. Greenaway

Poachers and bureaucrats: park warden Jenny Willson considers them equally repulsive and worthy of the same fate. When she discovers animals disappearing from Canada’s mountain parks, Willson finds herself racing down a trail lined with deceit, distraction, and murder and tempted to cross a line to a place from which she may never return.

Second in the B.C. Blues Crime Novel series after Cold Girl, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. This time a heartbreaking set of murders bring detectives Leith and Dion back to the big city. The brutal murders of a man, woman, and baby are just the beginning of a mystery that shakes Dion and Leith to the core.

Marée montante by Charles Quimper

All houses have their secrets, but the Delorme family home has a darker one: the mummified remains of a woman buried alive with a brick crammed in her mouth. As for the treasure that was safely buried there for years, it was doomed the moment a spirited young woman came ringing the doorbell.

Told by a man who loses his daughter while swimming one summer, Marée montante is the story of how he will find her again, on earth or thousands of miles underwater. A little gem of a book, this sad yet beautiful and enchanting story is a lesson in finding happiness through loss, and an ode to the pleasure of letting yourself be swept away by the fond memories of a time gone by.

Vi by Kim Thúy

Une longue canicule d’Anne Villeneuve

Vi is the younger sister of three older brothers, the “little treasure” who finds herself caught up in a privileged life and its turmoil. Leaving Saigon for Montreal, Vi witnesses the vastness of the ocean, the multiplicity of horizons, the sameness of sadness, the luxury of peace, the complexity of love, the endlessness of possibilities, and the violence of beauty.

« Un récit intimiste fait avec humanité. Le trait de la dessinatrice est simple, souple et précis. Anne Villeneuve maîtrise le mouvement et, dans des scènes minimalistes, parvient à créer des expressions et des émotions qu’on garde en mémoire. » —Jean Siag, La Presse

Andréanne Mars de Véronique-Marie Kaye

Révolution ! de Vittorio Frigerio

La belle et sculpturale Andréanne Mars aime regarder ses locataires faire l’amour à leur insu. Amorale et centrée sur elle-même, la jeune femme est malgré tout admirée par les gens qui gravitent autour de sa vie de façon variable. Mais il se pourrait que Chlotilde foute ses plans parfaits en l’air.

La révolution est une présence constante dans l’histoire. Les 11 nouvelles de ce recueil en explorent la fascination, les implications, les grandeurs occasionnelles et les misères fréquentes, en suivant les traces de révolutionnaires plus ou moins authentiques, de rebelles avec ou sans cause et de militants idéalistes à travers les époques et les pays. L’humour fin de Révolution ! se double d’une sympathie pour une humanité aux prises avec des aspirations contradictoires.

The Soul-Seeker by Steve Laflamme

Cadillac Road by Kristin Andrychuk

They call him the Soul-Seeker. Each of the women he kills is found with her face slashed. Xavier Martel, of the Major Crimes Unit, will spare no effort to put an end to a killer’s bloody cycle. As a child, Martel tasted raw violence when his father shoved a revolver into his mouth. Since then, he has been subject to episodes of taste synesthesia, a rare neurological condition in which any powerful emotion imprints itself on his tongue and palate.

Cadillac Road is the story of Sharon Desjardins, from her earliest childhood memories of leaving Northern Québec and a violent father to adventures in Buffalo and Crystal Beach with her mother and younger sister, Gloria, to dreams of escaping claustrophobic poverty in shabby Grenville by going to Toronto and marrying a wealthy lawyer whom she doesn’t love.

In post-WWII Italy, Passero, having lost his parents, kidnaps an orphaned girl and offers her up in exchange for his own freedom. His actions create a connection culminating in an adulterous affair in 1960s Toronto—and an illegitimate son named Ethan, an artist who inherits Passero’s family vineyard.

Accused of killing her mother, Sheyda is sentenced to death. The narrative jumps back and forth from Sheyda’s childhood to life in one of Iran’s most notorious prisons.

Waiting for Stalin to Die by Irene Guilford

Egoman de Serge Marquis

Fleeing Stalin’s advance into Lithuania, shaken by communism and war, four refugees end up in Toronto in 1949. Trying to resume normal lives, longing for their country’s freedom, they wait to go home. “This is a novel that contains a rare combination of intelligence and heart. I couldn’t put it down.” —Antanas Sileika, author of Underground

Egoman est bien plus qu’un personnage de superhéros imaginé par Charlot. Bien davantage que le dialogue vivant entre une mère monoparentale et son fils. C’est un roman plein de poésie et de profondeur, un récit touchant, bouleversant et profondément humain. Tous droits disponibles

Liminal by Jordan Tannahill

Once More with Feeling by Méira Cook

From award-winning playwright and filmmaker Jordan Tannahill comes a masterful and moving novel in the tradition of Ben Lerner’s Leaving the Atocha Station and Sheila Heti’s How Should a Person Be. Liminal is a riotous and moving portrait of a young man in uncertain times, a generation caught in suspended animation, and a son’s enduring love for his mother.

In the tradition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Olive Kitteridge comes Once More with Feeling, an exquisitely crafted, beautifully written, and wholly delightful novel about the place we call home and the people we call our community, told through intersecting moments and interconnected lives.

The Street of Butterflies by Mehri Yalfani

La femme aux cartes postales de Claude Paiement et Jean-Paul Eid

The Street of Butterflies features Iranian women dealing with displacement, cultural change, and their struggles to survive and adapt as immigrants in North America. These stories provide a glimpse of life in post-revolutionary Iran, where the new regime that replaced the old one continues the suppression and prosecution of political activists.

La femme aux cartes postales est un récit à clés dans lequel les histoires croisées de Rose, en 1957, et de Victor, en 2002, résonnent l’une en l’autre pour délier les énigmes du passé. Le travail historique remarquable des créateurs plonge le lecteur au cœur d’une époque effervescente, en proie aux changements imminents.

À la recherche de New Babylon by Dominique Scali

Le poids de la neige by Christian Guay-Poliquin

In this gripping western that vividly portrays America’s Far West during the 1800s, Reverend Aaron, Charles Teasdale, Russian Bill and Pearl Guthrie search the desert in pursuit of an impossible ideal, leaving behind the footprints of their destinies. In a world where nothing lasts, “it is not a question of escaping death, but of choosing your arena.”

Two men find themselves together in the sun lounge of a formerly grand but now abandoned house. Their agreement is that the old man will nurse the younger man back to recovery in exchange for firewood, food and, most of all, a place in the convoy that will depart for the town in the following spring. As the snow grows ever deeper around them, each day brings with it its own assortment of challenges.

Johnny de Catherine Eve Groleau

L’Habitude des bêtes de Lise Tremblay

Dans ce premier roman, Catherine Eve Groleau rend de façon magistrale ces éternels marginaux évoluant dans le clair-obscur de la petite criminalité et de la lointaine banlieue. Ce n’est que grâce à sa plume, qui leur redonne toute la grandeur tragique qu’ils ignoraient eux-mêmes posséder, qu’ils trouvent là où s’apaiser.

Lise Tremblay nous donne un roman d’une grande force, dans lequel tout ce qui nous apparaît comme une fin irrémédiable, une apocalypse, n’est au fond que la vaste respiration de la nature, du monde. Tous droits disponibles

Captain Mueller is dead. Hanged, apparently, by his own hand. But ex-police officer and war hero Sergeant August Neumann doesn’t think it’s quite so simple. How could it be, with blackshirts, legionnaires, and communist sympathizers vying for control of the camp? Now Sergeant Neumann must navigate these treacherous cliques to find the truth.

Brilliant is a collection of short stories set in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, a polyglot city where cultures collide and converge, where money—and sometimes justice—is no object, where in less than two generations towers have replaced tents. In these dozen-plus stories, a mixed grill of characters navigate this land of sudden plenty.

Mostarghia by Maya Ombasic

Pivot by Marie-Eve Cotton

The young narrator, her little brother and their parents are living in Mostar when the bombs begin falling on Tito’s Yugoslavia. They have to leave. The family embarks on a journey that will last for years, taking them through gypsy wagons, a refugee camp, to Switzerland and, eventually, Canada. Along the way, the narrator grows up and educates herself, carrying on a lively conversation with her painter father, a wounded man, prophetic, quicktempered and Balkan from tip to toe.

A harsh, hilarious, and hearthbreaking debut novel by a practising psychiatrist. In the psychiatric wing of Montreal’s Holy Mother Mary Hospital, Pivot, a.k.a. Hadrien Jalbert, is waiting for the end of the umpteenth incarceration engineered by the dark forces of “the System” that’s been persecuting him for years.

Eyes and Spies: How You’re Tracked and Why You Should Know by Tanya Lloyd Kyi

Stormy Seas: Stories of Young Boat Refugees by Mary Beth Leatherdale, illustrated by Eleanor Shakespeare

Eyes and Spies looks at the way information and data is collected and used by individuals, governments, companies, and organizations. Each chapter covers one aspect of the subject, from data collection to computer surveillance and personal privacy. Arguments for both increased security and increased privacy encourage readers to think critically about the issues.

The phenomenon of desperate refugees risking their lives to reach safety is not new. For hundreds of years, people have left behind family, friends, and all they know in hope of a better life. Featuring the true stories of five young people from around the world, Stormy Seas gives new insights into a situation that has constantly been making the headlines.

Visiting with the Ancestors: Blackfoot Shirts in Museum Spaces by Laura Peers and Alison K. Brown

Washington’s Long War on Syria by Stephen Gowans When President Barack Obama demanded formally in the summer of 2011 that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad step down, it was not the first time Washington had sought regime change in Damascus. The United States had waged a long war against Syria from the very moment the country’s fiercely independent Arab nationalist movement came to power in 1963.

In the pages of this beautifully illustrated volume is the story of an effort to build a bridge between museums and Indigenous communities, in hopes of establishing stronger, more sustaining relationships between the two and spurring change in museum policies.

When We Are Bold: Women Who Turn Our Upsidedown World Right by various authors

Babiak gently eviscerates and deflates cultural hot topics of our time. He deconstructs our fascination with Internet culture and its libertarian ideology, devolves the hallucinations of economics and marketing to rhetorical mystifications, and asserts and reasserts the supremacy of linguistic thinking in everyday cultural affairs no less than politics and philosophy.

Drawing on a vast knowledge of history, human evolution, philosophy, and modern complexity theory, MacKay tells a story that recognizes the marvels of human civilization while revealing its dark tendency towards oligarchic structures of power and exploitation. He then shows us how we can respond to preserve the best while defeating the worst. World rights excluding English Canada BISAC: NAT011000, POL043000 Thema: RNU, JPW

Through a skillful blend of natural history and in-depth interviews with First Nations elders, scientists, and wildlife officials, as well as compelling first-hand accounts of encounters with wild wolves, Paula Wild explores the world of this iconic apex predator and examines humans’ changing attitudes and evolving relationships with this elusive predator.

The Raftsmen by Ryan Barnett, illustrated by Dmitry Bondarenko

In 2009, Andrew Grant began photographing dogs, starting with two French bulldogs at an unrelated commercial “shoot.” Then he discovered the sad fact that millions of lost or abandoned dogs enter animal shelters every year. And only a few leave, through rescue and adoption. The rest are euthanized or live out a lonely, caged life.

In The Raftsmen, author and documentary filmmaker Ryan Barnett takes readers on an astonishing maritime adventure set in the aftermath of World War II. For four French expatriates who escaped the clutches of the Nazi regime to find asylum in Canada, adventure was to be the antidote to depression brought on by the cruelty of war.

Dans la tête des animaux: Ce que l’on sait vraiment sur leur intelligence by François Y. Doré

La crise des abeilles: Une agriculture sous influence de Jean-Pierre Rogel Grand reportage percutant sur le déclin des abeilles et sur l’usage inconsidéré des pesticides dans l’agriculture aujourd’hui. Un réquisitoire pour la biodiversité, mais aussi un éloge de notre cohabitation millénaire avec les abeilles.

What do we REALLY know about animal intelligence? What does a cat think while he stares at birds? Or what about an elephant, walking in the wild, or a monkey facing a mirror? If animals cannot talk to us, recent research shows that their mental activity is intense. An admirable synthesis of 100 years of psychology and ethology studies!

Les MOOCs: Cours en ligne et transformations des universités de Pablo Achard

Les opéras de Verdi: Éléments d’un langage musicodramatique de Steven Huebner

Encensés ou décriés, les cours en ligne ouverts et massifs (MOOCs) participent d’ores et déjà à la nouvelle configuration de l’enseignement supérieur. En replaçant ces cours dans l’histoire de l’enseignement, l’auteur évalue leur influence actuelle, future ou probable, sur les universités.

Année après année, Giuseppe Verdi reste le compositeur d’opéras le plus joué dans le monde. Pourtant, peu d’études musicologiques sur son style ont été publiées à ce jour. En fait, ce livre, véritable guide d’analyse opératique, est le premier dans toutes les langues qui traite de façon systématique du langage musical du compositeur.

Finding Franklin outlines the larger story and the cast of detectives from every walk of life that led to the discovery.

Price Paid: The Fight for First Nations Survival by Bev Sellars

They Called Me Number One: Secrets and Survival at an Indian Residential School by Bev Sellars

The book begins with glimpses of foods, medicines, and cultural practices that North America’s Indigenous peoples have contributed to the rest of the world. It documents the dark period of regulation by racist laws during the twentieth century, and then discusses new emergence in the twenty-first century into a re-establishment of Indigenous land and resource rights.

Sellars tells of three generations of women who attended St. Joseph’s Mission in Williams Lake, BC, interweaving the personal histories of her grandmother and her mother with her own. She tells of hunger, forced labour, and physical beatings, and also of the demand for conformity in a culturally alien institution where children were confined and denigrated for failure to be white and Roman Catholic.

One of Canada’s most celebrated artists has collaborated with a distinguished professor of English to create a work of art and scholarship both beautiful and informative. “Gerard Brender à Brandis is a renowned wood engraver, whose works of densely textured intricacy vibrate across your vision, drawing you into a microscopically magic world.” —Hans Werner, Toronto Star

On June 23, 1985, the bombing of Air India Flight 182 killed 329 people, most of them Canadians. Today this pivotal event in Canada’s history is hazily remembered, yet certain interests have shaped how the tragedy is woven into public memory. The authors investigate the bombing and its implications on racism, terrorism, and citizenship.

Why Indigenous Literatures Matter by Daniel Heath Justice

This work is both a heavily annotated collection of the reports Stan Brakhage did on the Telluride Film Festival for the magazine Rolling Stock and an analysis of his work that attempts to place his singular corpus in the context of world cinema— that is to say, alongside those filmmakers he was encountering in that mountain town.

This book asserts the vital significance of literary expression to the political, creative, and intellectual efforts of Indigenous peoples. The author challenges readers to critically consider and rethink assumptions about Indigenous literature, history, and politics, never forgetting the emotional connections of our shared humanity and the transformative power of story.

Juliette à San Francisco by Rose-Line Brasset Juliette is 13 and lives with her mother, a rather eccentric freelance journalist. Each volume follows Juliette as she accompanies her mother to a new destination where her job is to write articles and travel guides. For her 8th expedition, Juliette is off to San Francisco! She and her mother are invited to the wedding of a distant cousin.

Everybody thinks Muso is the ugliest dog they ever saw. Which might be true. But he is also kind, helping, affectionate, and—let’s say it—a little bit naïve. All Muso wishes for is a friend or maybe a nice family he could live with for a while without getting thrown out again! When he crosses paths with a boy named Felix, his life takes an unexpected turn for the best.

Fired Up about Capitalism by Tom Malleson

Fired Up about Reproductive Rights by Jane Kirby

There is no alternative to free-market capitalism. At least, that’s what we’ve been told since the 1980s, when Margaret Thatcher first declared the debate over. Politicians daily declare it, journalists parrot it, rich people gloat about it, and regular people simply assume it. Fired Up about Capitalism forcefully argues that this is nothing but a myth.

Decades after abortion was legalized and decriminalized in places like Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, why are we still fighting for reproductive rights? Shattering the myth that the battle for reproductive rights has already been won, Fired Up about Reproductive Rights shows us the many ways our reproductive lives remain subject to state control.

L’univers fantastique de Moisan mélange légendes, aventures et magies dans un contexte rigoureusement historique, où des personnages fictifs côtoient les Luther, Machiavel, Chevaliers d’Avignon et autres grands de l’époque, au sortir du Moyen-Âge.

Fernwood Publishing 2017 | English ISBN: 9781552669693 C$21.00; 288 pgs.

With We Were Not the Savages, Daniel Paul changed the way the world understood the history of Eastern Canada and the fully developed civilization that existed before the arrival of the European explorers and settlers, and the nature of the subsequent violent attack on that culture. With Chief Lightning Bolt, Paul shows us exactly what was lost, the beauty of the Mi’kma’ki that once existed, and the culture that survived and is only now beginning to recover.
