Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer

Stuart Ross

Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer by Stuart Ross

Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer is equal parts literary memoir, advice for the emerging writer, and reckless tirade. Ross has been active in the Canadian literary underground for a quarter of a century. He's sold thousands of his books in the streets, published and edited magazines, trained insurgents in his Poetry Boot Camps, and started Canada's first Small Press Book Fair. Where the media focuses only on the glamorous literary lives of its few superstars, Ross gives us a glimpse into How Writers Really Live. In Confessions, he declares himself the King of Poetry, explores his floundering...

Who Killed Janet Smith?

Ed Starkins

Who Killed Janet Smith? by Ed Starkins

Who Killed Janet Smith? examines one of the most infamous and still unsolved murder cases in Canadian history: the 1924 murder of twenty-two-year-old Scottish nursemaid Janet Smith. Originally published in 1984, and out of print for over a decade, this tale of intrigue, racism, privilege, and corruption in high places is a true-crime recreation that reads like a complex thriller. We are pleased to be reissuing this title as part of the City of Vancouver's Legacy Book Project. This new edition features a Foreword by historian Daniel Francis.

Madeline Sonik

Afflictions & Departures is a collection of first-person experiential essays by writer and academic Madeline Sonik.

Afflicitons & Departures begins by considering the turbulent and changing nature of the world in the late 1950s and...

The House With the Broken Two: A Birthmother Remembers

Myrl Coulter

The House With the Broken Two: A Birthmother Remembers by Myrl Coulter

Unmarried and pregnant in 1968 Winnipeg, teenager Myrl Coulter found herself at a loss. Unable (and perhaps unwilling) to support her child, Myrl's parents forced her to give the baby up for adoption. After being sent to a home for unwed mothers, Myrl gave birth in a desolate hospital room and then found herself at the mercy of a closed adoption process that seemed determined to punish her. Myrl was left numb and filled with questions that no one was able to answer. In The House With the Broken Two: A Birthmother Remembers, Dr. Myrl Coulter reflects on the family politics and social mores that...

Accelerated Paces: Travels Across Borders and Other Imaginary Boundaries

Jim Oaten

Accelerated Paces: Travels Across Borders and Other Imaginary Boundaries by Jim Oaten

Accelerated Paces hurdles that uneasy terrain between creative fact and honest fiction. These short stories and pieces ignore borders as they jaunt thorough external trips and internal voyages. This is both creative non-fiction and creative fiction, which follows the idea of crossing boundaries and blurring borders.

What It Feels Like For a Girl

Jennica Harper

What It Feels Like For a Girl by Jennica Harper

What It Feels Like for a Girl is a series of poems following the intense friendship between two teenagers as they explore pop icons, pornography, and the big, strange world of sex. They soon learn just how complicated sexuality is-and how confusing desire can be. What It Feels Like for a Girl is about many things: the friendships girls have at the most intense times in their lives. Pornography and its "lessons" for the young woman who has never experienced sex in an unfiltered way. What sex and love have to do with each other-if anything. How so many things in this world are two things at once...

Everything Rustles

Jane Silcott

Everything Rustles by Jane Silcott

In this debut collection of personal essays, Jane Silcott looks at the tangle of midlife, the long look back, the shorter look forward, and the moments right now that shimmer and rustle around her. Here is love, grief, uncertainty, longing, joy, desire, fury, and fear. Also wandering bears, marauding llamas, light and laundry rooms. This isn't a "how to" guide tomiddle age and it's not a collection of memories either - for one thing, the author can't remember that much - for another, she's more interested in the places where the raw bones of the personal intersect with the wider world. Where...

The Stone Face

Sherry MacDonald

The Stone Face by Sherry MacDonald

The year is 1964 and first-time film director Alan Schneider is about to embark on a project combining the talents of Buster Keaton and Samuel Beckett. When Alan visits the home of Keaton to discuss the project, titled simply Film, he discovers the former star engaged in an imaginary card game with the long-deceased Irving G. Thalberg.

It doesn't take long for Alan to realize that he has entered into an altered universe resembling the surreal world of the Buster Keaton film, a world where doors solve problems and card games provide lessons in life. Alan turns to Beckett for help in making sense...

Street Stories: 100 Years of Homelessness

Michael Barnholden

Street Stories: 100 Years of Homelessness by Michael Barnholden

Homelessness is not new to Vancouver. There have been homeless people in Vancouver since it was founded in 1886. As in other major North American cities, until the late '70s and early '80s homelessness in Vancouver followed the economic logic of boom and bust capitalism.

However, since the run-up to the World Exposition of 1986, that logic has no longer been the determining factor influencing the growing number of homeless in the city. The "new poverty" that emerged in the 1980s is a product of the transition from an industrial-based capitalist economy to a post-industrial, global economy and...
