PETRARCH by Tim Atkins

Details 

New British Poets No. 2

Who is this Petrarch? Who is this Tim Atkins? He is an English poet profoundly affected by the American ear of the 1970s to present. These are meant to be translations, but they are more akin to transformations of everything Atkins has ever read or done, including what he saw at breakfast. In that way, they are Buddhist reckonings with the daily, not unlike Joanne Kyger's or Philip Whalen's recordings of microfluctuations in perception.

The Red Album by Stephen Collis (PDF Digital Download)

Details 

PDF format for PDF Readers.

In the tradition of Borges, Nabakov, and Bolaño, The Red Album is a work of fiction that questions historical authenticity and authority. Divided into two parts, the book begins with an edited and footnoted narrative of dubious origins. In the second part, a section of "documents" (including essays, memoirs, a short play and a filmography) shed light on the first narrative. Familiar characters are revealed to be writers, and the writer and editors of the initial narrative are revealed to be characters. As the ghosts of social revolutions of the past are lifted from the soil in Catalonia, and a new revolution unfolds in South America, the number of mysteriously missing author/characters grows almost as fast as new author/ characters emerge and complicate and scatter the threads of the story.

A by André Alexis

Details 



Department of Narrative Studies No. 9

A is a work of fiction in which André Alexis presents the compelling narrative of Alexander Baddeley, a toronto book reviewer obsessed with the work of the elusive and mythical poet Avery Andrews. Baddeley is in awe with Andrews's ability as a poet - more than anything he wants to understand the inspiration behind his work - so much so that, following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims throughout literary history, Baddeley actually tracks Andrews down thinking that meeting his literary hero will provide some answers.

I Don't Know How to Behave by Michael Blouin

Details 

Department of Narrative Studies No. 10

I Don't Know How To Behave combines the true story of Canadian daredevil and stunt driver ken Carter (1938-1983) with imagined biographical elements from the lives of Canadian film director Bruce Mcdonald and Canadian poet gillian sze. Along the way, this quintessential Canadian story crashes head first into many related things, from screenplay theory to hip hop history to the story of early Canadian film to drawings to photographs to bank robberies to chaos theory to technical specs for detroit muscle cares to re-imagined movies to imagined documentary to advertisements to newspaper interviews to instructions for making molotov cocktails to evel kneivel to steve McQueen's Bullitt to self-help tomes to "rappers delight" to online instructions for how to publish a book, such as the one you are about to read called I Don't Know How to Behave by Michael Blouin.

Deep Too - Non-Fiction by Stan Dragland

Employing a sort of leaping or mosaic structure and incorporating e-mails re penis-enlargement, questionable limericks, jokes, graffiti and a photo of a "penis latte," along with personal anecdotes and probes of books and films, Deep Too is a book of non-fiction stories. it is a funny and sometimes biting book about the phenomenon of male strut and competition. Thinking with feeling, the author posits an expansive masculinity that rises above stereotype, traditional roles and the either/or choices they so often involve.

Revelator by Ron Silliman

Details 

Revelator is the opening poem in a major sequence entitled Universe. It's the jumping off point for a work that, were Ron Silliman to live long enough, would take him three centuries to complete. We are hopeful. Universe is a poem of globalization and post-global poetics (an important reason for publishing this key section outside of the USA).

The Counting House by Sandra Ridley

Details 

Finalist for the 2014 Archibald Lampman Award

Akin to a bookkeeper’s accounting of what’s given and taken in a fraught, uncertain exchange, The Counting House goes on to record the pageantry and pedantry of courtly affection gone awry. Symbols and origins of traditional rhymes involving kings and queens serve as inventory, alongside elements of Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish and Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex.

Details 

ePub format for Kobo and iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

Nobody Rides For Free: A Drifter in the Americas chronicles former bike courier John Hughes' rambles through Latin America on a bicycle. In this gripping mosaic-travellogue, readers are introduced to banditos, artists, grifters, would-be wives, dope fiends and attacking monkeys: a cast of characters who conspire to reduce him to alcoholic destitution. His last remaining $400 is spent sailing the Amazon, flying to Miami, and then hitchhiking across some of the most frightening highways in the United States with the goal of making it safely home to Vancouver. Throughout his adventures we learn about con-artistry, fear, and kindness set against the imposing backdrop of everything we think we know about the Americas. Nobody Rides For Free sheds light on obscure 1990s road culture while gearing itself to the needs of anyone with a desire to run from their demons on the open road.
