      "This is an important book for those that are on both sides of the mental health equation. It shows what a grieving parent goes through (?We grieve twice? she tells us) as they come up against a system that just does not work." James Fisher, The Miramichi Reader

      ?[Messaili] describes an environment that is coercive, punitive, and shaped to cater to doctors? egos rather than patients? needs. Instead of being listened to, Ferid [Messaili?s son] is drugged into submission? those who have tried to navigate the labyrinthine and under-resourced mental health system will find validation in [her] words.? Anne Thériault, Quill & Quire

      Canada Reads 2021 Longlist

      "There are so many fun things about this book. [?] You?d think this book would be a downer, but there is so much light." Naomi Mackinnon

      "Réhel gives the reader a front-row seat to a baroque and often hilarious interiority ? one that highlights the complexity and tragedy of the human condition, while playfully revealing the capacity of the human mind for turning the struggles of existence, large and small, into a source of amusement. (...) In addition to the often-dark humour, Réhel has a poet?s eye for rhythm, repetition, and stark imagery that thankfully isn?t lost in the exceptional translation by Katherine Hastings and Peter McCambridge." Dean Garlick, Montreal Review of Books

      "Jean-Christophe Réhel's Tatouine is every bit as remarkable as QC Fiction's earlier offerings ... wit and resignation dance cheek-to-cheek."

      "There is a unique and sometimes funny take on an element of the human condition in Jean-Christophe Réhel?s novel Tatouine. It is a light read but one that is memorable. And it is certainly one of my favourites of this year." (Steven Buechler, The Library of Pacific Tranquility)

      ?the melancholy, mirthful story of a likeable 31-year-old with a poor self-image [?] a very worthwhile read? (James Fisher, The Miramichi Reader)

      Just incredible. EVERY line in this first novel deserves to be underlined. It?s a book to scribble hearts and stars all over? One thousand stars for this author.? (Claudia Larochelle)

      Description

      Two unrelated, aspiring writers, born on the same day in the same year to parents with the same first names, grow up together and eventually gain national prominence as authors. As the years pass, the complex sexual identities of Miller Sark and Hal Pierce undermine their intense private relationship, inflicting damage that cannot be undone by the distinction of their fiction and poetry. Inspired by the lives and works of American literary giants Ernest Hemingway and Hart Crane, This Cleaving and This Burning reveals the passion and purpose behind masks of public reputation and creative expression.

      This Cleaving and This Burning by J.A. Wainwright is a novel I will never forget....I felt every emotion our two main characters felt; I grew up with them as they discovered the world around them and themselves, trying to understand their own feelings. Their constant underlying search for the next thing to write, their stumbling across moments too right not to write about, their confusing emotions as they discovered themselves and rewrote who they were.


      I was enthralled by this story from the very first page. The distinct voices of the characters, compelling subject matter, and lyrical prose weave together to form a touching and unforgettable novel about identity, friendship, the secret desires of the heart, and love.

      Insightful moments and emotional scenes involving each hit their mark, and the reader feels drawn to the passions of both for life and literature.


      This Cleaving and This Burning is a bold and brilliant novel that will transport readers to another era. Andrew Wainwright tells the story of an intense friendship and forbidden desire. With great sensitivity, authentic characters and powerful scenes, this engaging tale burns into the mind and heart long after the journey has ended in its pages.

      "Mays’s passion for art electrifies fascinating sketches of Beuys." -Quill and Quire

      A brooding fugitive hides out in a crumbling hotel that was once filled with celebrities enjoying the successes of postwar America. He is a racist with a criminal past, an anti-hero who reflects on the ruins of the South and simultaneously on the life of a German performance artist called "Jupp". The fictional Jupp is a thinly-veiled cipher for the late real-life German artist, Joseph Beuys, and the photos in the novel are photos of the performances by the controversial Beuys. At once echoing the moody worlds of W. G. Sebald and incorporating outrageous elements of pulp fiction, this novel of dark romanticism is not for optimists seeking redemption, but for those willing to take a look into a searing heart of darkness.

      Mays’s passion for art electrifies fascinating sketches of Beuys.


      On Power in the Blood: Amazon.com Review Ostensibly a family memoir, John Bentley Mays's Power in the Blood is a lyrical remembrance of his ancestors in the American South. He traces his lineage back to the arrival of a forebear in 1609 and then provides an illuminating view of how historical events were experienced by a large extended family. Mays's chronicle of his ancestors' lives during the colonial period, through the great upheavals of the Civil War, and into the 20th century is a beautifully written and highly informative narrative. From Library Journal A Canadian unearths his Southern roots in what the publisher hopes is another Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. From Kirkus Reviews A soul-searching memoir makes poetic hay of the saw that you can take the boy out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the boy. Mays's picturesque childhood on a Louisiana cotton plantation ended abruptly with his parents' deaths. He withdrew into a fantasy of ultra-Southernness and, after a mental br

      Description

      A father comes out to his daughter as a woman. Or at least, he was once a woman. It's complicated. Funny. Painful. Eventually joyful. Meanwhile the daughter, who was adopted, has her own identity issues. At the Aboriginal addictions treatment centre where she works, everyone assumes she is Indigenous. But is she? How can she find out? Cardinal Divide explores the hunger for certainty and the mutability of identity, whether of gender, race or sexuality. Authenticity isn't simple. Acting as somebody else is simultaneously a way to deceive and to explore the world. Characters who pass as male, as white, as straight, straddle the cardinal divides. And then, sometimes, passing is becoming.

      David and Daniel face a shocking revelation that tests them and their lives together. I think the main point that the books makes is that all of us may be different in many ways, yet we are all the same in the long run. Experiences change us but rolling with these and facing what we have to face makes us stronger. I realize that this paragraph might seem ambiguous to many but when you think about it, you will understand that it takes “a village” for us to become who we are. Here that village is composed of Daniel’s friends. This is a sequel to Yeh’s A Boy at the Edge of the World (which I have yet to read) but it stands alone. All in all, it is a rewarding read and highly recommended.


      Sharp, witty and heartfelt.


      Praise for A Boy at the Edge of the World: An unabashed gay rom-com coming of age story that entertains with a deceptively light style.


      I remain in awe of David Kingston Yeh‘s writing. The world-building, the storytelling and depth of each and every character he writes is vivid and rich as we are taken on this journey of nights out and relaxed afternoons. In Tales From the Bottom of My Sole, we are quietly handed jewels of the family histories and legacies behind characters we’d never know so intimately in any other novel. Beyond the characters, the author has their conversations place so many real-life stories of feminism, revolution, liberation, queer theory and queer history in here –moments that are quirky, silly, inspiring, empowering, and just-so-damn-interesting are contained within the narrative. Tales is a story that unwraps itself so many times over the more you think about each scene.

      Description

      Kessaris manages to convey a sense of shared history through the prose itself, bringing the Montreal immigrant experience to life with wry humour and painstaking attention to detail. —Montreal Review of Books

      The Butcher of Park Ex is a humorous collection of personal stories inspired by the author's life growing up in Montreal's Park Extension neighbourhood, with Greek immigrant parents who never quite adapted to life in their new country. Never really fitting in with his ethnic community, and never feeling like part of mainstream Quebec or Canadian society, he sets out on an over forty-year search for answers, encountering amazingly interesting people and unique misadventures while trying to navigate a world where he is constantly the odd man out.

      Bio

      The son of Greek immigrants, Andreas Kessaris grew up in the Park Extension district of Montreal. He has a B.A. from Concordia University. His feature column, Read On! with Andreas Kessaris was a popular feature in The Local Herald. His work has appeared on Suite 101.com and Curtainsup.ca. He currently resides in the Town of Mont-Royal, Quebec.

      The stories that Kessaris shares in the book are filled with humour, comedy, camaraderie, and plenty of pathos that will automatically create a deep feeling of empathy for the author in his endless pursuit of personal happiness.


      For Montrealers, the liberal use of local landmarks and street names helps contribute to the impression that we’ve been here before; over the course of the collection, he attends parties on Clark Street, peruses record stores on Ste. Catherine’s, and recalls childhood trips to the Fairview centre in Pointe-Claire and Les Galeries d’Anjou. But the sense of paramnesia goes beyond place names that exist on a map. Kessaris manages to convey a sense of shared history through the prose itself, bringing the Montreal immigrant experience to life with wry humour and painstaking attention to detail.


      The stories in The Butcher of Park Ex are sometimes irreverent, and at times even a little sad, but they’re always filled with humour and honesty. Andreas Kessaris tells it like it is and doesn’t shy away from self-deprecation. He could be the star of his own sitcom, a sort of Greek Anglo-Montrealer mix of Kramer and George in Seinfeld. If someone asked me which Greek God best represents Andreas, I would answer: “The one that couldn’t sit still, broke the mould, and doesn’t have his own statue."


      Kessaris is generous with his story-telling. His collection features 24 “semi-truthful tales,” each with a nice twist revealing the narrator’s personality in bite-size doses.


      Andreas Kessaris's collection of short stories will delight the reader. Each tale is a gem combining wit with deeper feelings drawn from life. After reading this book readers will wait impatiently for more from this talented writer.


      Rambunctious, big-hearted and lively, this book is both entertaining and moving. Andreas Kessaris writes with ruthless honesty and tenderness about authentic characters, their misadventures and passions, and his memories of growing up in an iconic Montreal neighbourhood.

      A bittersweet but charming coming of age look at the universal Montreal immigrant experience. Brimming with a yearning innocent nostalgia, it brings the rich street scene of Park Extension to life with painstaking attention to the telling detail.
