Par John Gibbons, Greg Oliver. 2023
Par Rasiqra Revulva. 2020
Cephalopography 2.0 is as much a passionate celebration of cephalopods in all their plurality and finery as it is a…collection of poems exploring human identity and experience through the lens of these marine animals. Through experimental takes on traditional poetic forms such as ghazals, tankas and cinquains, as well as more contemporary forms, Rasiqra Revulva delves into ecopoetics and marine biology, creating unique and beautifully composed poems. Cephalopography 2.0 plunges into the depths of human experience to pull out diverse perspectives of how cephalopods and humanity are linked together in ways that stretch beyond the land and the sea.

Depuis cinquante ans, Hosanna se terre dans son appartement de misère, entre ses guenilles de "folle" et ses rasades de…gin quotidiennes. Quand ce vieil ex-travesti reçoit la visite d'un jeune journaliste qui s'intéresse à la faune des années soixante-dix, l'interview d'une heure que celui-ci croyait réaliser avec Claude Lemieux se transforme en un échange d'une semaine avec Hosanna. Haute en couleur, forte en gueule, alcoolique chronique, elle lui montrera les coulisses du milieu et ses guerres intestines, les violences homophobes d'alors, et lui révélera des secrets du Red Light de Montréal connus d'elle seule
Par Suzanne Aubry. 2022

Par Boucar Diouf. 2022
""Comme chez les éléphants, la matriarche humaine est le pilier central de la famille", écrit Boucar, qui a perdu sa…mère l'an dernier. "C'est pour me relever de sa disparition que j'ai écrit ce modeste bouquin". Un livre aussi touchant qu'instructif et tendre. Avec sa verve habituelle, son humanisme lucide et son sens inné de la vulgarisation scientifique, Boucar nous rappelle quelques vérités essentielles de l'existence. De celles qui nous aident à apprivoiser la mort mais aussi à profiter pleinement de la vie puisque qu'elles "sont les deux faces d'une même pièce". Qu'il évoque ce que lui ont légué ses ancêtres ou qu'il partage avec nous ses connaissances, le conteur biologiste fait le lien entre le monde réel et celui qui nous habite. Et nous assure que nos mères vivent en nous, autant sur le plan spirituel que matériel. "Comme dit le proverbe africain, l'éléphant meurt, mais ses défenses demeurent." Parole de Boucar!"
Par Jean-Pierre Charland. 2022
Montréal, 1907. Aux prises avec une mauvaise toux persistante, Éléonore Dolan se fait conseiller par son médecin d'aller se reposer…à la campagne. Toutefois, moins d'un an après son mariage, l'idée de s'éloigner de son époux lui déplaît. Mais les hasards du métier de policier réservent aux Dolan une surprise de taille : en effet, dans un petit hameau des Laurentides, une adolescente est devenue la principale suspecte du meurtre de son cadet. Cette affaire de fratricide attire même l’attention de tous les journaux. Faute de personnel, la Police provinciale néglige le dossier, au point où il devient opportun de dépêcher sur place un détective du Département de police de Montréal
Par Cody Caetano. 2022
"When Cody and his family move to Happyland (into what he calls the "half-bush," somewhere in between the bush and…the suburbs), their house becomes a gathering place for friends, colourful characters, and not-quite-cousins, with Rock 95 blasting on the radio and fresh cases of Molson Canadian thumping onto the tempered-glass patio table. But when his parents careen into their inevitable divorce, Cody and his siblings are thrust into a period of neglect, scraping by on skimpy cupboard offerings and watching the house in Happyland fall apart around them. From there the family is caught between aspiring to be "good lifers" and navigating the "baddie" temptations all around them. There's Cody's mom, Mindimoo, who after discovering her Anishinaabe heritage and Sixties Scoop origin story embarks on a series of fraught relationships and fresh starts. There's his dad, O Touro, whose "big do, little think" attitude upends the lives of everyone around him. There's his fiercely protective older sister, Kristine, who'll do whatever it takes to keep Cody safe and fed, and his big brother, Julian, who facilitates his regular escapes into the world of video games. Capturing the chaos and wonder of childhood and garnished with a slang all its own, Half-Bads in White Regalia is a memoir that unspools a tangled family history with warmth, humour, and deep generosity."
Par Billy-Ray Belcourt. 2022
"An urgent first novel about breaching the prisons we live inside from one of Canada's most daring literary talents. An…unnamed narrator abandons his unfinished thesis and returns to northern Alberta in search of what eludes him: the shape of the novel he yearns to write, an autobiography of his rural hometown, the answers to existential questions about family, love, and happiness. What ensues is a series of conversations, connections, and disconnections that reveals the texture of life in a town literature has left unexplored, where the friction between possibility and constraint provides an insistent background score. Whether he's meeting with an auntie distraught over the imprisonment of her grandson, engaging in rez gossip with his cousin at a pow wow, or lingering in bed with a married man after a hotel room hookup, the narrator makes space for those in his orbit to divulge their private joys and miseries, testing the theory that storytelling can make us feel less lonely. Populated by characters as alive and vast as the boreal forest, and culminating in a breathtaking crescendo, A Minor Chorus is a novel about how deeply entangled the sayable and unsayable can become--and about how ordinary life, when pressed, can produce hauntingly beautiful music."
Par Tom Ryan. 2020

Par Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha. 2022
In The Future Is Disabled, Leah Laksmi Piepzna-Samarasinha asks some provocative questions: What if, in the near future, the majority…of people will be disabled - and what if that's not a bad thing? And what if disability justice and disabled wisdom are crucial to creating a future in which it's possible to survive fascism, climate change, and pandemics and to bring about liberation? Building on the work of their game-changing book Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice, Piepzna-Samarasinha writes about disability justice at the end of the world, documenting the many ways disabled people kept and are keeping each other - and the rest of the world - alive during Trump, fascism and the COVID-19 pandemic. Other subjects include crip interdependence, care and mutual aid in real life, disabled community building, and disabled art practice as survival and joy. Written over the course of two years of disabled isolation during the pandemic, this is a book of love letters to other disabled QTBIPOC (and those concerned about disability justice, the care crisis, and surviving the apocalypse); honour songs for kin who are gone; recipes for survival; questions and real talk about care, organizing, disabled families, and kin networks and communities; and wild brown disabled femme joy in the face of death. With passion and power, The Future Is Disabled remembers our dead and insists on our future.

Par Mark Bourrie. 2022
The remarkable true story of the rise and fall of one of North America's most influential media moguls. When George…McCullagh bought The Globe and The Mail and Empire and merged them into the Globe and Mail, the charismatic 31-year-old high school dropout had already made millions on the stock market. It was just the beginning of the meteoric rise of a man widely expected to one day be prime minister of Canada. But the charismatic McCullagh had a dark side. Dogged by the bipolar disorder that destroyed his political ambitions and eventually killed him, he was all but written out of history. It was a loss so significant that journalist Robert Fulford has called McCullagh’s biography "one of the great unwritten books in Canadian history"—until now. In Big Men Fear Me, award-winning historian Mark Bourrie tells the remarkable story of McCullagh’s inspirational rise and devastating fall, and with it sheds new light on the resurgence of populist politics, challenges to collective action, and attacks on the free press that characterize our own tumultuous era.
Par Robert Pasternak. 2019
Robert Pasternak (NAK) is a virtuoso of the sequential art form. An adept panelologist and painstaking craftsman. Despite a loyal…and attentive following, awareness of his work is limited. In many ways, what may appear to be a constraint is part of the NAK mystery and lore. The abstract comics medium is highly complex and only vaguely understood. For NAK, it's merely a brushstroke. Yet, to define this artwork as abstract could be considered derivative. To the observer, NAK is ocular candy. Psychedelic sensuality.Delve into the NAK experience, an explorative expedition contained in this first published volume of his work. This creative journey will compositionally challenge and cerebrally stretch the current understanding of comics.
Par Bruce McIvor. 2021
Faced with a constant stream of news reports of standoffs and confrontations, Canada’s “reconciliation project” has obviously gone off the…rails. In this series of concise and thoughtful essays, lawyer and historian Bruce McIvor explains why reconciliation with Indigenous peoples is failing and what needs to be done to fix it. Widely known as a passionate advocate for Indigenous rights, McIvor reports from the front lines of legal and political disputes that have gripped the nation. From Wet’suwet’en opposition to a pipeline in northern British Columbia, to Mi’kmaw exercising their fishing rights in Nova Scotia, McIvor has been actively involved in advising First Nation clients, fielding industry and non-Indigenous opposition to true reconciliation, and explaining to government officials why their policies are failing. McIvor’s essays are honest and heartfelt. In clear, plain language he explains the historical and social forces that underpin the development of Indigenous law, criticizes the current legal shortcomings and charts a practical, principled way forward. By weaving in personal stories of growing up Métis on the fringes of the Peguis First Nation in Manitoba and representing First Nations in court and negotiations, McIvor brings to life the human side of the law and politics surrounding Indigenous peoples’ ongoing struggle for fairness and justice. His writing covers many of the most important issues that have become part of a national dialogue, including systemic racism, treaty rights, violence against Indigenous people, Métis identity, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP) and the duty to consult. McIvor’s message is consistent and powerful: if Canadians are brave enough to confront the reality of the country’s colonialist past and present and insist that politicians replace empty promises with concrete, meaningful change, there is a realistic path forward based on respect, recognition and the implementation of Indigenous rights.
