Women Writers Book Bundle #1


A three-book bundle by three inspiring, incisive women. For only $30 (plus tax and $5 flat rate shipping) you'll receive:

Aphelia by Mikella Nicol, translated by Lesley Trites

"Nicol’s writing is unflinching as she explores the rigours of twenty-first- century early adulthood. This short volume overflows with sex, alcohol, and alienation." - Jeff Miller, Montreal Review of Books

The Goddess of Fireflies by Geneviève Petterson, translated by Neil Smith - 2015 Archambault Prize winner

"A melange of blasé toughness and menacing vulnerability, Catherine and her story will resonate deeply with those of us who grew up in the 90s of Cobain, cocaine, and 18-hole Doc Martens..." – Anna Leventhal, author of Sweet Affliction

Sit How You Want by Robin Richardson - 2019 Trillium Book Award winner

"Richardson proclaims that now is the hour of independence and bravura... Her poems are rambunctious but bleak in outlook. Hints of danger are everywhere." - Nicholas Bradley, Canadian Literature
May Fiction Bundle


As the weather warms up, so do our bundles! For only $20 (plus GST and 5$ flat shipping) you''ll get Dominoes at the Crossroads by Griffin Prize nominated author Kaie Kellough and The Bleeds by Hugh Maclennan Prize winner Dimitri Nasrallah delivered right to your mailbox.
Dominoes at the Crossroads
Kaie Kellough

Linked portraits from the Afro-Canadian diaspora.

Dominoes at the Crossroads maps an alternate Canada—one crisscrossed by a Caribbean diaspora seeking music, futures, and portals to their past.

In this collection of stories, Kaie Kellough’s characters navigate race, history, and coming-of-age by way of their confessions and dreams. Through the eyes of jazz musicians, hitchhikers, quiet suburbanites, student radicals, secret agents, historians, and their fugitive slave ancestors, Kellough guides us from the cobblestones of Montreal’s Old Port to the foliage of a South American rainforest, from a basement in wartime Paris to an underground antique shop in Montréal during the October Crisis, allowing the force of imagination to tip the balance of time like a line of dominoes.

An internationally acclaimed sound performer and writer, Kaie Kellough’s books include Accordéon, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Amazon Canada First Novel Award, and Magnetic Equator, shortlisted for the 2019 QWF A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry. Born in Calgary, he currently lives in Montréal.

History Through Our Eyes
Edie Austin

History Through Our Eyes is a day-at-a-time look back at the 20th century through the lenses of Montreal’s news photographers.

The striking photographs are drawn from the archives of the Montreal Gazette, one of North America’s longest-publishing daily newspapers. They include iconic images from the Gazette as well as some photographs from the Montreal Herald, the Montreal Star and the Standard. While the photographs are the focus of this volume, the texts that accompany them tell the story of one of North America’s most fascinating and news-intensive cities.
Resisting Canada
Nyla Matuk

The poems included in Resisting Canada address, among other things, Indigenous agency, cultural belonging, environmental anxieties, and racial privilege. These poems ask us to judge and resist a statecraft that refuses to acknowledge past and present wrongs. Think of Resisting Canada as a poetic letter to Canada’s politicians and leaders.

Resisting Canada gathers together 28 poets for a conversation bigger than poetic trends. Its organizing principle is Canada—the Canada that established residential schools; the Canada grappling with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission; the Canada that has been visible in its welcome of Syrian refugees, yet the not-always-tolerant place where the children of those refugees will grow up; the Canada eager to re-establish its global leadership on the environment while struggling to acknowledge Indigenous sovereignty on resource-rich land and enabling further colonization of that land. In the face of global conflicts due to climate change, scarcity, mass migrations, and the rise of xenophobic populisms, Canada still works with a surface understanding of its democratic values—both at their noblest and most deceptive.

The poets:
Jordan Abel
James Arthur
Marie Annharte Baker
Billy-Ray Belcourt
Wayde Compton
Beth Cuthand
Rosanna Deerchild
Marilyn Dumont
Marvin FrancisLouise
Bernice Halfe-Sky Dancer
Jim Johnstone

On Resisting Canada:
"Resisting Canada

On 1984 Trilogy Bundle:
"Through multiple links that weave between the imagination of cybernetics and the history of literature, Plamondon's novel is a vibrant tribute to the ingenuity of human beings." - Alexandre Coderre, Spirale magazine

On The Gang of Four:
"The Gang of Four is the story of a mother’s love and perseverance to uncover the fate of her first-born son amid secrets buried deep in Montreal’s past. While those secrets are being uncovered, we see how decades of guilt have followed the actual gang of four, affecting every facet of their lives from childhood to parenthood with seemingly no way out. This is Kindellan-Sheehan’s finest work yet." - Sonali Karnick, host of All in a Weekend,
