Bittersweet: Confessions of a Twice-Married Man

Philip Lee

Bittersweet: Confessions of a Twice-Married Man by Philip LeeSometimes the life we have constructed needs to fall apart before we can begin the process of making something better. After his first marriage ended, Philip Lee found himself living with his younger brother in an old fisherman's house by the sea, trying to restore some order to the wreckage of his life. It was a dark year of rain-bucket showers, blowtorch espresso, and abandoned renovation projects. They were bachelors in every sense of the word. With wit, warmth, and sensitivity, Philip Lee writes about this dark year, the struggle to rebuild his life and family and his rediscovery of love's...

The Right Fight: Bernard Lord and the Conservative Dilemma

Jacques Poitras

The Right Fight: Bernard Lord and the Conservative Dilemma by Jacques PoitrasIn The Right Fight: Bernard Lord and the Conservative Dilemma, CBC reporter Jacques Poitras provides a journalist's account of how Bernard Lord rose to the top in provincial politics and why his path could lead to Ottawa. The clean sweep of Frank McKenna's Liberals in 1987 shook the foundations of the New Brunswick Progressive Conservative Party, but election night 1991 utterly shattered the Tory dream. As expected, the Liberals won a second majority, but the fervently anti-bilingualism Confederation of Regions (COR) Party formed the official Opposition. For the first time in a hundred years,...

When Things Get Back to Normal

M. T. Dohaney

When Things Get Back to Normal by M. T. DohaneyOne Friday, Walter Dohaney, novelist M.T. (Jean) Dohaney's husband, went out as usual to play hockey with his friends. She never saw him alive again. Without warning, Jean was plunged into the most painful and disorienting experience of her life. Faced with a tumult of emotions and sudden responsibilities, she turned to her writing for solace and began a journal. In her journal, Dohaney's sharp sense of humour and her impatience with conventional pieties lay bare the depth of her bereavement, yet at the same time they express the life force within her. She is frank about her anger at Walt for...

Wild Apples: Field Notes from a River Farm

Wayne Curtis

Wild Apples: Field Notes from a River Farm by Wayne CurtisThere is a dreamlike quality to many of the stories in this new collection from Wayne Curtis. In Wild Apples, he returns to familiar themes of love and longing, and the push-pull emotions which inevitably accompany any attempt to break free of the ties that bind. Simple pleasures abound in these evocative stories, be it fishing on the river, gathering beans for an evening supper (are they beans or has-beens?), or listening to the jukebox at the local diner. Curtis mines the shaft of everyday experiences, turning each one into a meditation on human nature. In the title story, an afternoon drive...

The Blind Bookkeeper (or Why Homer Must Be Blind) / Le comptable aveugle (l'Incontournable c

Alberto Manguel

The Blind Bookkeeper (or Why Homer Must Be Blind) / Le comptable aveugle (l'Incontournable c by Alberto ManguelIn 1943, Northrop Frye wrote a paper, left unfinished, on "the state of the world." His ideas of what to expect after the end of the war and the role that literature might play in a time of peace, are the starting point for a meditation on the roles of writer and reader, and what kind of vision is required of them to explore and depict the world. Homer is the archetype of the writer who can see into the future through his knowledge of the past. But how has Homer been read throughout the centuries by generations caught up in the counterpoint of war and peace? And, following Frye's exploration,...

Amazing Medical Stories

George Burden & Dorothy Grant

Amazing Medical Stories by George Burden & Dorothy GrantThe twenty true tales in Amazing Medical Stories give a rich and entertaining picture of the ways in which medical workers (both real and fake) have used the keys to the mysterious kingdom of life: health, disease, and physical anomaly, birth, death, and post-mortem diagnosis.

Amazing Medical Stories deals with quacks and charlatans, the giants Angus McAskill and Anna Swan, the first case of antisocial personality disorder, as well as wonderous inventions and achievements by physicians....

Abode of Love: Growing Up in a Messianic Cult

Abode of Love: Growing Up in a Messianic Cult by Kate BarlowWhen Kate Barlow was a little girl, she moved with her mother and her older sisters to a ramshackle English mansion. They were not alone on the once-grand estate, surrounded as they were by twenty eccentric, elderly women, one of whom was her grandmother . . . or was she? This remarkable memoir is the true story of life inside "The A," the infamous Agapemone,* named for the Greek word meaning Abode of Love. It was a religious cult founded in mid-19th century England by a defrocked clergyman who claimed to be guided personally by the Holy Ghost. Agapemonites, many of whom were wealthy, unmarried...
