      Description
      The landlord, the husband, the wife, and the lover. Giulio di Orio, an assistant lecturer in Philosophy, brings one of his students, known as Torp to the Vancouver flat he shares with his wife Nicole. Soon their landlord is convinced that Torp is the devil incarnate, and the police have arrested him for the street bombings that have been plaguing the city. A sexually-charged tale bubbling with lust, suspected murder, and the twilight of the flower children--all set against the backdrop of martial law in 1970 Vancouver.

      Description
      At thirteen, bookish Veronica Reid lives in a world inside her head, even if she isn?t entirely successful at resisting the intrusions of the world outside. It?s bad enough that she has to wear awful new glasses; it?s downright disastrous that she?ll have to spend the summer at Laughing Willows Trailer Park with her obnoxious younger brothers and unhappy mother. She can?t imagine anything worse. Lonely and bored, she begins to observe the activities of the local crows, even as she gradually finds a community among the odd denizens of Laughing Willows. When violence erupts, she finds unexpected strength both inside herself and in the people?and the crows?around her. LGBTQ interest.

      ?A precocious young girl finds her flock in Karen Molson?s remarkable debut, a vividly immersive coming-of-age tale set in an Ontario trailer park one summer in 1974. Evocative and compelling, The Company of Crows gives us a bird?s-eye view into the life of Veronica Reid ? an introspective thirteen-year-old who is at once both naive and wise beyond her years. A touching and satisfying tale of family, friendship and first love.? ? Christopher diRaddo

When he comes across a bag of money in a downtown parking lot, we also meet the delinquent who lost the bag of money in the first place. The assemblage in Jack Hannan?s first novel are driven by wordsmithery, trickery, and flights of such fancy?for an instant, the signal comes in clearly, and we might all step into this world where anything is possible.

      ?What if the world were composed of poets? In The Poet Is a Radio the question arises. Money and love, avarice and sensibility are arrested in an ebb and flow of linguistic and essential delights, as poets and poetic souls encounter one another, coping with our time and place. Jack Hannan demonstrates how poetic sensibility alters the electric current of the world.? ? Trevor Ferguson
