A Step in the Right Direction by Morten Sondergaard (Translated by Barbara Haveland)

Details 

In A Step in the Right Direction, Søndergaard continues a line of thought he first developed in Bees Die Sleeping and continued in Vinci, Later (which was published in English in 2005). This new collection is "about" walking. It contains four major cohesive songs or cantos, each of which explores the act of walking from a different point of view: as a social activity, as an act of love, as a condition for thought, and as inspiration for art.

Voluptuous Pleasure: The Truth about the Writing Life by Marianne Apostolides

Details 

Voluptuous Pleasure is a collection of non-fiction whose title states that non-fiction does not exist. Sensuous and smart, ambiguous but incisive in their truths - these stories take you into brothels and bedrooms, kitchens and consciousness; they seduce you along the limits of non-fiction, making you question the veracity of anything you've ever read - or even experienced. Put your trust in the language itself: you can't trust reality, not anymore. If you've ever been confused about what "creative non-fiction" is, look no further: this book defines the genre.

Nobody Rides for Free: A Drifter in the Americas by John Francis Hughes

Details 

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.

This Way by Lise Downe

Details 

The poems in This Way are an alternative take on the genre of detective fiction. In them we uncover an assortment of clues and the task of sorting out the essential from the superfluous; the real from the imagined; the inside from the out. As in our daily lives, in spite of all the 'evidence', there is no familiar sense of direction.
