States of Emergency


“Yoyo Comay’s power to turn a phrase, however enigmatic, is startling. Reading States of Emergency, I feel like an oboe player encountering Jimi Hendrix.”—Richard Greene
Quicker Than The Eye


Praise for Joe Fiorito:

“Fiorito proves himself a storyteller of remarkable gifts: there’s an aura of dignity and beauty over events, sometimes terrible, sometimes tender.”—Esquire

“Joe Fiorito writes like a rough-hewn angel.” —The Globe and Mail

“Fiorito has all the right stuff.”—Mordecai Richler
Cathedral/Grove


Praise for Susan Glickman:

“These lyric poems have an unassuming grace and clarity.”—Barbara Carey, Toronto Star

“Glickman’s striking sensory poems are tightly controlled, even choreographed, with music.”—Crystal Hurdle, Canadian Literature
While Supplies Last


Praise for Anita Lahey:

“Her poems are vividly imagined, technically and formally astute, and stylistically rich.”—Poetryreviews.ca

“A poet whose commitment to chance and risk is as much verbal as emotional.”—Books in Canada

“In crisp, descriptive phrases, Lahey turns details of ordinary domesticity into vivid tableaux.” —Toronto Star

“Poems built on detail, colour, and texture; they’re supple and muscular, showing the tenderness inside toughness”—Susan Gillis

The Four-Doored House


“The striking, densely packed, remarkably translated poems of The Four-Doored House deserve time spent with them as they stretch out time across verses, thoughtfully observing loved ones and the self throughout life.” – Robyn Fadden, Montreal Review of Books
