WHO BY FIRE, WHO BY BLOOD Novel - Jon Papernick

A hair-raising and suspense-filled novel by an utterly original writer "whose work bristles with the energy needed to make fiction out of human conflict and need." –The Globe and Mail
Jon Papernick’s portrayal of the upper middle-class Matthew Stone, and his entanglement with an Ultra Orthodox Zionist terrorist cell in Brooklyn, is a suspense-filled page-turner!
Matthew, the alienated grandson of a Jewish trigger man for Murder Incorporated, discovers that his father – a dishonored N.Y. judge – has not only been a supporter of the extreme right wing in Israel, but he has kept a secret bank account to support pro-Israeli terrorist activities. And it is how to access the mysterious truths inherent in the bank account that constitutes the core of this fast-driving, hair-raising novel.
Papernick, through thoughtful characterization, defines the terrifying distinctions that have to be drawn between religious faith and religious zealotry, distinctions that in the end are morally devastating.

THE OBVIOUS CHILD Fiction/Stories - Matt Shaw

The exceptional debut story collection by the recipient of the 2006 Writer’s Trust/McClelland & Stewart $10,000 Journey Prize.
At once dark, comic, and fantastic, the tales of The Obvious Child reinvigorate some of literature’s most enduring conventions through prose that evokes Bernard Malamud, Paul Auster, Donald Barthelme, Kazuo Ishiguro & Franz Kafka.
From a detective seeking an impossible answer, a truck driver tormented by a glass jar, to a woman who mourns her thrice-dead husband, and a child adamant he was not born by his mother but a voice: Here are characters struggling to define themselves in a world where it is impossible to be fully human. Yet, these are characters who articulate the necessity of attempting humanity, who prove that there are narratives that bind us together.

THE ROARING EIGHTIES AND OTHER GOOD TIMES Non-Fiction/Essays - Norman Snider
Considered to be one of the premier journalists in Canada by Peter C. Newman, Norman Snider’s writings on literature, politics, crime, sports, jazz – and more – appeared regularly in Toronto Life, Saturday Night, Macleans, and Rolling Stone.
As a journalist Norman Snider shows extraordinary range and diversity, and this collection of non-fiction runs a wonderful gamut of subjects: portraits of pianist Glenn Gould and politicians Jean Chretien, Brian Mulroney, John Turner and Joe Clark; an exposé on the murder of heiress Nancy Eaton; a recollection of a trip to Los Angeles with renowned filmmaker David Cronenberg; an exploration of the realities of Canadian peacekeepers abroad; critical essays on Robertson Davies, Joyce Carol Oates, Saul Bellow, Morley Callaghan, Edmund Wilson and others; as well as articles on cocaine dealers, the music of Miles Davis and Wynton Marsalis, travels to Mexico, and the title fight in Las Vegas between late Canadian heavyweight champion Trevor Berbick and world champ Larry Holmes. This collection displays the best work of one of our leading cultural commentators!

SMASH YOUR HEAD ON THE PUNK ROCK - Matt Bissonnette

An authentic journey that follows the lives of four youths growing up in Montreal in the late 70s and early 80s, with each taking their turn telling the story . . . dropping acid in the past, dropping out in the future, dropping in sporadically on a present, real and imagined . . . and the result: a polyphonic work that is as akin to their punk rock music as it is to a prose that rolls in lucid, rhythmic waves.
A fascinating Generation X tale that plays off the fragmented cornerstones that deliniate this remarkable period in social change!
"This is like Mordecai Richler meets Charles Bukowski in one book because Bissonnette’s prose reverberates with the intensity of Charles Manson painting donkeys, or Sade on Crystal Meth." –Diane Keating

A FINELY TUNED APATHY MACHINE - Mark Paterson
Bursting with verve, comedy and peculiarity, Mark Paterson¹s second collection of short fiction stimulates the imagination in refreshing and unexpected ways. From a loner who uses the mosh pit as a confessional, to a cross-dressing neophyte prowling the aisles of the local supermarket, to a diner owner who garnishes every dish on his menu with chopped-up hot dog wieners, to a group of teens who co-opt an arcade security camera for their own inventive purposes, these characters navigate an increasingly uncertain world with resourcefulness and guts, carving out enhanced existences one tiny victory at a time.
"Short stories with clever twists and turns that took me on a marvellous ride from start to finish. A strong second book by a young writer to keep your eye on!" ­ Austin Clarke

OF OLD STONES UNDECIPHERED - Morley Callaghan

Essays, Reviews, Meditations and Talks: 1928 - 1990
A selection of masterful reflections on writing, and the writer’s life.

Morley Callaghan, born in 1903, was not just a prolific writer of fiction (he published many novels, a memoir, and four volumes of short stories), but all his life he wrote essays about other writers – starting in the Twenties with Virginia Woolf, Dos Passos, Thomas Mann, and Joyce¹s Finnegans Wake. Then, in a kind of "table talk," he commented through magazines, newspapers, CBC Radio and TV on everything from war propoganda to Homburg hats. Into his final decades, he wrote on Solzhenitsyn and Marquez, meditations on our Winter and on Failure, always dealing with complex matters in his graceful, conversational prose. Here, brought together for the first time, over sixty years of a master’s belles lettres.

THE LUNATIC MUSE - Joe Rosenblatt

In this book – part memoir, part analysis, and part manifesto – Governor General’s Award winner Joe Rosenblatt deftly links poetry to the personalities of Milton Acorn, Gwendolyn MacEwen, John Newlove, John Clare, Christopher Smart, Sylvia Plath, and other troubled poets who scholars have termed Poets of the Asylum. To Rosenblatt, the Lunatic Muse often calls on the poet to cultivate the darker, manic side of the imagination, while the act of creation is essentially confessional, cathartic and exhilarating. At the heart of the book, he makes his case in a passionate tribute to his mentor, Acorn, focusing on Acorn’s tragic, driven life, and his signature poem "The Natural History of Elephants."
"This is a rare, personal look at the creative process of writing by one of its most successful and respected practitioners. –Barry Callaghan
