      A cookbook inspired by how food from around the world not only connects us all, but also reminds us of home.

      Cooking outside one's comfort zone is now easier than ever: ingredients once considered exotic are available at supermarkets across the country, and we're more open to exploring the far reaches of the world through food. This tantalizing cookbook takes readers on a global tour through food, from the steamy noodle shops of Seoul to the wood-fired grills of Istanbul and funky dives of San Francisco. Randy and Darcy Shore explore how food informs our ideas around community and identity ("home"), and how it shapes our experience of and appreciation for other cultures ("away").

      Their recipes are based on years of travel as well as their intrinsic interest in the foods of other cultures; they make once complicated dishes a little easier for North American cooks while still respecting centuries-old food traditions. The book includes such dishes as Braised Pork Belly with Crunchy Rice, Volcanic Soba Noodle Salad, Moroccan Lamb with Lemon Couscous, and Jerk Chicken with Grilled Romaine. There are also interviews with chefs Mario Batali, Edward Lee, Anita Lo, Vikram Vij, and others on the ways their cultures influence their cooking.

      Home and Away takes home cooks on a delicious trip around the world, no passport required.

      140 recipes; full-colour photographs



      Darcy Shore has been working around food since waitressing as a teenager in Alberta. She met her husband Randy at Banff's Sunshine Mountain Lodge where she managed the dining room. Today, she works at a cooks' supply store on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. After staying in the background for Randy's first book Grow What You Eat, Eat What You Grow, Darcy has stepped up with many of her own recipes for Home and Away. She was particularly inspired by a recent trip through Europe and Turkey and has adapted her favourite discoveries for North American home cooks.

      Randy Shore is the author of Grow What You Eat, Eat What You Grow. He is a food and sustainability writer for the Vancouver Sun and author of The Green man blog; he is also a former restaurant cook and an avid gardener. He is a recipient of the BC and Yukon Community Newspaper Association Best Columnist award and the BC Wildlife Federation Art Downs Award for conservation journalism. Randy and his wife Darcy live in Roberts Creek on BC's Sunshine Coast.

      Finalist, Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award

      During his forty-two-year-career he helped detectives in Vancouver, Victoria, and throughout BC solve hit-and-runs, safe-crackings, and some of the most sensational murder cases of the 20th century. Vance was constantly called to crime scenes and to testify in court because of his skills in serology, toxicology, and autopsy.

      When Vance was first called to a crime scene in 1914, forensics was in its infancy. Vancouver was the first police department in Canada to have a scientist on staff and one of the few police departments in North America to use forensics in investigations. Vance's knowledge of poisons helped solved a sensational death case, while his work in blood analysis allowed him to distinguish human from animal blood--and thereby send a murderer to the gallows. His work in firearms examination was leading-edge, and Vance was able to bring his expertise in trace evidence and explosives to solve dozens of robberies, earning him front-page headlines.

      Vance's skills and analytic abilities were so effective that in 1934 there were seven attempts on his life, and for a time, he and his family were under constant police guard from criminals afraid to go up against him in court.

      Blood, Sweat, and Fear delves into some of the most notorious cases in BC's history while giving a sense of what life was like in Vancouver during the first half of the century. At the same time, it reveals the untold story of the personal struggle of John F.C.B. Vance, a scientist who never lost his moral compass in the midst of corruption that reached to the top of the police force and to City Hall.


      Eve Lazarus is a reporter, author, and the host and producer of the true crime podcast Cold Case Canada. She is the author of four Arsenal titles: Cold Case Vancouver: The City's Most Baffling Unsolved Murders (2015), a BC bestseller and 2016 finalist for the Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award at the BC Book Prizes; Blood, Sweat, and Fear: The Story of Inspector Vance, Vancouver's First Forensic Investigator (2017); Murder by Milkshake: An Astonishing True Story of Adultery, Arsenic, and a Charismatic Killer (2018); and Vancouver Exposed: Searching for the City's Hidden History (2020). She is also the author of Sensational Vancouver (2014), , Sensational Victoria: Bright Lights, Red Lights, Murders, Ghosts & Gardens (2012), and her book At Home with History: The Untold Secrets of Greater Vancouver's Heritage Houses was a 2008 City of Vancouver book award finalist.

      Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award 2018, Short-listed
      John F.C.B. Vance is an unsung good guy from a lifetime ago -- a dogged forensic scientist determined to bring British Columbia's murderers to justice, regardless of threats to himself and his family. Eve Lazarus has written an important history book that reads like a thriller. -Michael Kluckner, author/artist of Vanishing Vancouver and Toshiko
      Eve Lazarus has written a detective story based on her research about a fascinating individual who was a pioneer in forensic science in Canada. The book includes interesting specifics about many of the true crime cases that John F.C.B. Vance helped to solve. -Douglas M. Lucas, former director of the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Ontario
      A fascinating true crime story ... Cold Case Vancouver author Eve Lazarus fill us in on Vance's vastly ahead-of-his-time exploits in ballistics, explosives and blood analysis, which earned him plenty of headlines and the wrath of an underworld that set out to permanently silence this recurring star witness. -BC Living
      In Blood, Sweat, and Fear, Eve Lazarus rescues one of the most important actors in the history of forensic science in Canada from obscurity ... Lazarus writes in a highly readable style, demonstrating an ability to distill what was probably a tremendous amount of archival information into a narrative that does not overwhelm the reader with excessive detail. -Ormsby Review

      In this compelling novel for young adults, Keira is a quirky but shy teen entering her first year of high school; she navigates her growing interest in kissing both girls and boys, while not alienating her BFF, boy-crazy Sita. As the two acclimate to their unfamiliar surroundings, they manage to find new lunchmates and make lists of the cutest boys in school. But Keira is caught "in between"?unable to fully participate in these kind of conversations, yet too scared to come clean. She’s also feeling the pressure of her family’s problems: parents who married too young and now have money issues; an older brother who’s the popular kid at school and takes every opportunity to taunt Keira; and a younger sister who uses a wheelchair and must put up with adults who expect too little or too much from her.

      Keira finds solace in training for the regional finals in figure skating, which she loves even though she knows it’s geeky (and very het-girl!). But when she meets a girl named Jayne who seems perfect for her, she isn’t confident she can pull off her charade any longer. Matters come to a head at the high school Halloween dance, where friendships are tested and mended, new relationships are made and broken, and Keira’s own life combusts in one unalterable instant, only to be reconfigured in the most unexpected way.

      Rough Patch is a powerful novel about picking yourself up after a spill, and finding your own way in the world.

      Ages 12 and up.


      Nicole Markotic is a novelist, critic, and poet who teaches Children's Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Windsor.

      Keira is figure skating on very thin ice. She can land an axel, no problem, but the leap she's about to make looks likely to sweep her feet right out from under her. Markotic takes us inside Keira's head where the words are -- the awkward, sometimes hilarious, painful and poignant words -- which she dare not say. And then when she does ... well, it does more than break the ice. Rough Patch is a YA problem novel that turns into a love story. But wait for the end of the program: it's more thrilling than a quad!
      -Tim-Wynne-Jones, author of The Emperor of Any Place
      Rough Patch is a perfect triple axel of a story, with electric writing, unforgettable characters, and a climax that will leave you gasping. Markotic gets what it's like when none of the labels people have for you fit, and when you wonder if there's something wrong with you because you don't want them to fit. I fell hard for this book.
      -Melanie Little, author of The Apprentice's Masterpiece and Confidence
      Rough Patch has a lot going for it. Keira's voice as a character is incredibly authentic; she's shy, awkward, silly, and self-deprecating. She's easily frustrated with her parents and constantly worried about making her best friend proud--by not being a prude. The tension between being her authentic self, and being someone who at the very least won't be the laughing stock of the school, is consistently rendered throughout the novel.

      NOW A MOTION PICTURE directed by Shasha Nakhai and Rich Williamson; screenplay by Catherine Hernandez

      Trillium Book Award and City of Toronto Book Award finalist; Edmund White Debut Fiction Award finalist; A Globe 100, National Post and Quill and Quire Best Book of the Year

      Scarborough is a low-income, culturally diverse neighbourhood east of Toronto, the fourth largest city in North America; like many inner-city communities, it suffers under the weight of poverty, drugs, crime, and urban blight. Scarborough the novel employs a multitude of voices to tell the story of a tight-knit neighbourhood under fire: among them, Victor, a black artist harassed by the police; Winsum, a West Indian restaurant owner struggling to keep it together; and Hina, a Muslim school worker who witnesses first-hand the impact of poverty on education.

      And then there are the three kids who work to rise above a system that consistently fails them: Bing, a gay Filipino boy who lives under the shadow of his father's mental illness; Sylvie, Bing's best friend, a Native girl whose family struggles to find a permanent home to live in; and Laura, whose history of neglect by her mother is destined to repeat itself with her father.

      Scarborough offers a raw yet empathetic glimpse into a troubled community that locates its dignity in unexpected places: a neighbourhood that refuses to be undone.


      Catherine Hernandez is the author of the novel Scarborough, which won the 2015 Jim Wong-Chu Award; was shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award, Toronto Book Award, the Evergreen Forest of Reading Award, and Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction; and was longlisted for Canada Reads 2018. It made the "Best of 2017" list from The Globe and Mail, National Post, Quill and Quire, and CBC Books.

She is the Artistic Director of b current. Catherine lives in Scarborough, Ontario.

      Scarborough marks the arrival of a fierce new voice in Canadian fiction. Hernandez has rendered one of the most vibrant portraits of contemporary suburbia I've yet encountered. -Jordan Tannahill, two-time Governor General's Award-winning playwright
      It's said that sometimes an author needs to write fiction in order to tell the most searing truth, and Scarborough is perfect proof of that axiom. This is a beautifully rendered, intimately populated landscape that honours and cherishes characters we usually only see relegated to background scenery and pat, two-dimensional representations. It feels at once foreign and familiar, soothing and challenging -- the kind of storytelling that touches our tenderest places; the best kind of storytelling I know. -S. Bear Bergman, author of Butch Is a Noun and The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You
      Scarborough showcases a necessary shift from the singular voice novel to create space for many voices to be heard -- especially ones that are often forgotten. In her dexterous debut, Catherine Hernandez powerfully centres the margins by interlacing narratives that spotlight the beauty that thrives beyond the big city. -Vivek Shraya, author of even this page is white and She of the Mountains
      Hernandez goes deeper than most writers dare when it comes to the complexities of racial and cultural violences, unafraid to unpack the explicit and implicit prejudices that inform her characters' behaviours, white and racialized alike ... This is a crucial book for Toronto, and a shining example for writers concerned with the cultural tensions of the now. -Broken Pencil
      With its multiplicity of voices and its ability to walk the very fine line between nonjudgmental and nonexculpatory, the book is a sensitive and unvarnished look at a place with more than its fair share of troubles, and Hernandez shows that it is also a place that refuses to give up hope. -Publishers Weekly
      Scarborough is a celebration of community, a sensitive and compassionate portrayal of how lives are irrevocably changed, moment by moment, through small acts of kindness or cruelty. It's a novel that deserves to be read widely. -Hamilton Review of Books
      Scarborough is raw yet beautiful, disturbing yet hopeful ... It gives voice to people whose stories are often unheard, making this an important book that deserves a wide audience. -Booklist
      Scarborough is important for many reasons; it's also quite simply storytelling at its finest. -Popmatters.com

      , Winner, ReLit Award; Finalist, Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize (BC Book Prizes)

      A YouTube star becomes famous after he documents his breakup online. An anxious, lactose-intolerant office worker obsesses over a stranger who says "Nice shorts, bro" to him in passing. A couple wants to open up their relationship to a ghost. A monster just wants to find love in his human skin.

      In these unconventional, interconnected stories--the first work of fiction by acclaimed poet Daniel Zomparelli, editor-in-chief of Poetry Is Dead magazine--gay men look for love in any way possible. From social media, to finding someone within a dream, the ways in which these characters search for joy becomes both limitless and overwhelming. With wry abandon and a beguiling heart, Everything Is Awful is a deadpan, tragicomic exploration of love, desire, and dysfunction in the twenty-first century.


      Daniel Zomparelli is the Editor-in-Chief of Poetry Is Dead magazine and co-podcaster at Can't Lit. He also co-edits After You, a collaborative poetry project. He is the author of the poetry collections Davie Street Translations and (with Dina Del Bucchia) Rom Com, both published by Talonbooks. His debut story collection Everything Is Awful and You're a Terrible Person was published by Arsenal Pulp Press in 2017. He lives in Vancouver.

      ReLit Award 2018, Winner
      Daniel Zomparelli completely reinvents the short story in this sardonic debut collection. Through quipping prose that fuses poetry and digital communication, Zomparelli distinctively establishes himself as a zeitgeist writer to heed. -Vivek Shraya, author of even this page is white and She of the Mountains
      Filled with ghosts and lovers, grief and beer, funerals and bad dates, Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person is about the lies we tell to comfort ourselves and everybody else, the identities we create and then destroy, and the moments when human longing pushes us toward honesty. Crystal clear, cynical, and incisive, Daniel Zomparelli's stories will take up permanent residence in your head.
      -Jen Sookfong Lee, author of The Conjoined and The End of East
      Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person is inventive and incisive, a compulsively readable and often hilarious collection of linked stories about the anxiety of intimacy and connection. A weird, perfect gem of a book. -Zoe Whittall, author of The Best Kind of People
      This is admittedly the first book I've read since Grindr was invented. Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person seduced me out of a sex app death march with writing so dreamy, heartbreaking, funny, and like Zomparelli himself: tender as hell. -John Early, comedian
      Brilliant is not too strong a word to describe Everything Is Awful and You're a Terrible Person. Funny, wicked, moving, profane and sad come to mind too. This is a bomb of a book wrapped up in 32 short stories ... It feels like an explosion of fresh air. -Vancouver Sun
      It's called Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person and it delivers, tongue-in-cheek.
      -The Globe and Mail
      Written in flat, earnest prose reminiscent of the 'Alt-Lit' movement, Zomparelli's stories pull humor from the banalities of lives devoted to anonymous sex, cellphone apps and social media.
      -New York Times
      Zomparelli's book -- like his body of work -- does the smart and risky thing of trying the same questions on for size over and over again, probing the edges of our hang-ups with agitation and admiration. -Quill and Quire
      Juicy, funny, and thoroughly absorbing ... This book, full of hookups and texts and chemically enhanced evenings, is about a particular kind of modern gay experience, and there is a pleasure to seeing oneself, one's city, one's generation laid out in such buoyant, fun prose.
      -Winnipeg Review
      At times outrageous but always unflinchingly honest. -Broken Pencil

      Winner, Writers' Trust of Canada's Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers; American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book; Finalist, Lambda Literary Award and Publishing Triangle Award for Trans and Gender Variant Literature

      This extraordinary poetry collection is a vivid, beautifully wrought journey to the place where forgotten ancestors live and monstrous women roam--and where the distinctions between body, land, and language are lost. In these fierce yet tender narrative poems, Kai Cheng Thom draws equally from memory and mythology to create new maps of gender, race, sexuality, and violence. In the world of a place called No Homeland, the bodies of the marginalized--queer and transgender communities, survivors of abuse and assault, and children of diaspora--are celebrated, survival songs are sung, and the ancestors offer you forgiveness for not remembering their names.

      Descended from the traditions of oral storytelling, spoken word, and queer punk poetry, Kai Cheng Thom's debut collection is evocative and unforgettable.

      I dream warm, wet
      Earth-colored wombs,
      That rise and tremble and swell with the moon
      To give birth to babies connected
      By blue-river veins of memory


      Kai Cheng Thom is a writer, performance artist, and community healer in Toronto. She is the author of the novel Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars: A Dangerous Trans Girl's Confabulous Memoir Metonymy Press), the essay collection I Hope We Choose Love: A Trans Girl's Notes at the End of the World (an American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book), the poetry collection a place called No Homeland (an American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book in 2018), and the children's picture books From the Stars in the Sky to the Fish in the Sea, illustrated by Kai Yun Ching and Wai-Yant Li, and For Laika, the Dog Who Learned the Names of the Stars, illustrated by Kai Yun Ching.

      Kai Cheng Thom's debut spins race, trans feminism, and community place-making with lore and magic. This entire collection has a captivating oral story-telling quality. You can almost hear Thom's well-honed lyrical talents aloud when reading her poetry on the page. -Amber Dawn, author of How Poetry Saved My Life
      This is a book I have been waiting for even before I knew it would come to be, and a crucial addition to the growing cannon of trans women of colour literature and Canadian queer and trans people of colour poetics. Thom's poems write the roadmap that trans femmes of colour and queer and trans people of colour desperately need -- one that maps our femme of colour bodies' fiercest wisdom and the places called 'nowhere' by the cis colonial imagination that are the grounds where we dream the futures that will bring us all home. Your white cis boyfriend won't save you from the end of the world, but these poems remind us beautifully that we already are saved. -Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, author of Dirty River and Bodymap
      With imagery and word choice that will leave you breathless and aching, Kai Cheng Thom's a place called No Homeland is a phenomenal collection that draws heavily on mythology and oral tradition, gender fluidity and sexual identity. It is at times full of high energy, the words pulsing and needing to be said aloud; at others raw and quietly thoughtful. It proposes a break from tradition and the rigidity of the past, focusing instead on a movement forward into a future of strong women. This is a slim book of poetry that will wreck you in only the most glorious ways. -Teen Vogue
      A tour-de-force debut poetry collection ... Thom will make you feel the heartache of narrators who realize the erasure of their identity, but she will also instill hope and happiness as others triumph over their heartache and the wrongs they are victims of. -Ricepaper
      A firework display of courage and victory in the face of aggression ... Through her poetry, Kai Cheng Thom offers communal celebration to marginal people and a voice of encouragement for transwomen who walk similar paths. -Broken Pencil
      This debut collection by Toronto spoken word artist Kai Cheng Thom is impassioned testimony, fiercely polemical and often raw, on the charged subject of identity. -Toronto Star
      In a place called No Homeland, Thom transposes the energy of queer punk spoken word onto the page. The result is a vulnerable, shimmering debut. -Room
      A thought-provoking, beautiful, and painstakingly candid poetic debut ... . In Thom's work, queerness is sensational but not sensationalized, and beauty, memory and desire are done right, sublime in their specificity.

      A Queer Film Classic on John Waters' 1974 dark comedy.

      The first title in the Queer Film Classic series to focus on the work of legendary director and cinematic camp icon John Waters, best known for the underground classic Pink Flamingos and his later more commercial works such as Crybaby, starring Johnny Depp, and Hairspray, which was also made into a hit stage and film musical. His films are perhaps best exemplified by his partnerships with the late, legendary drag queen Divine, who starred in his most outrageous films, including 1972's Pink Flamingos and its 1974 follow-up, Female Trouble.

      In Female Trouble, Divine stars as Dawn Davenport, a young troublemaker who runs away from home and embarks on a mind-bending journey in a world "where crime and beauty are the same." In his review of the film, critic Rex Reed asked, "Where do these people come from? Where do they go when the sun goes down? Isn't there a law or something?"

      Chris Holmlund's book examines the film's camp aesthetic and its position in the history of independent film.


      Chris Holmlund is Arts and Sciences Excellence Professor in Film and French at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Her previous books include Contemporary American Independent Film, co-edited with Justin Wyatt (Routledge, 2005) and Between the Sheets, In the Streets: Queer, Lesbian, Gay Documentary, co-edited with Cynthia Fuchs (University of Minnesota Press, 1997). She lives in Knoxville, Tennessee.

      Matthew Hays is a Montreal-based critic, author, and university and college instructor. His articles have appeared in a broad range of publications. His first book, The View from Here: Conversations with Gay and Lesbian Filmmakers (Arsenal Pulp Press), was cited by Quill & Quire as one of the best books of 2007 and won a 2008 Lambda Literary Award. He is co-editor (with Thomas Waugh) of Queer Film Classics, a series of monographs for Arsenal Pulp Press on LGBTQ films; titles in the series include Paris Is Burning, Strangers on a Train, Law of Desire, and Female Trouble. He is the film instructor at Marianopolis College, and also teaches courses in journalism, communication studies, and film studies at Concordia University, where he received the Concordia Alumni Award for Teaching Excellence in 2007 and the President's Award for Teaching Excellence in 2013.

      Thomas Waugh is the award-winning author or co-author of numerous books, including five for Arsenal Pulp Press: Out/Lines, Lust Unearthed, Montreal Main: A Queer Film Classic (with Jason Garrison), Comin' At Ya! (with David L. Chapman), and Gay Art: A Historic Collection (with Felix Lance Falkon).
