      Description
      In Zimbabwe, John Eppel and Togara Muzanenhamo epitomise the ideal of the poet dedicated to excellence in form as well as content. There are as many definitions of poetry as there are poets but, as the Merriam-Webster Dictionary usefully explains, poetry is "Writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through its meaning, sound, and rhythm...." In their arrangement of words and creation of sounds and rhythms, John Eppel and Togara Muzanenhamo promote this classic view of poetry.
      Bio
      John Eppel, born in 1947, is an English teacher in Bulawayo. He published his first poems in the 1960s, in Two Tone, and his first collection, Spoils of War, in 1989. John won the Ingrid Jonker Prize for Poetry for Spoils of War, and the M-Net prize for his first novel, D G G Berry's The Great North Road. His second novel, Hatchings, was chosen for the series in the Times Literary Supplement of the most significant books to have come out of Africa. His other novels are The Giraffe Man, The Curse of the Ripe Tomato, The Holy Innocents, Absent: The English Teacher, Traffickings and The Boy Who Loved Camping. John's other poetry collections are Sonata for Matabeleland, Selected Poems: 1965-1995 and Songs My Country Taught Me. Two collections of his poetry and short stories have been published: The Caruso of Colleen Bawn and White Man Crawling. Poems and short stories of Eppel's have appeared online and in many anthologies and journals, and his recent collaborations with other writers include Together, with Julius Chingono, and Hewn from the Rock, with Philani A Nyoni. Born in 1975, Togara Muzanenhamo studied Business Administration in the Netherlands and in France. He has worked as a journalist and a film script editor. His poems have appeared widely in international magazines, journals and anthologies. In 2006 his debut collection of poems, Spirit Brides, was published by Carcanet Press and shortlisted for the Jerwood Aldeburgh First Collection Prize. The Times Literary Supplement welcomed the poet as a young writer of solid distinction: ?he can be "cool" but seldom "light". His best writing makes no reference to itself, does not allow itself to be damaged by over exuberant metaphor.' In 2012 Muzanenhamo was chosen to represent Zimbabwe at Poetry Parnassus in London, ?the biggest gathering of poets in world history', where he read at the gala event with Seamus Heaney, Kim Hyesoon, Bill Manhire, Kay Ryan and Wole Soyinka at the Royal Festival Hall. Poetry Parnassus was part of the Cultural Olympiad that preceded the 2012 Olympic Games. His second collection, Gumiguru, is published by Carcanet Press.

      Description
      The origins of medicare have long been told as a simple and satisfying story: a good idea, born in Saskatchewan, was championed by our Greatest Canadian, Tommy Douglas, embraced by Canadians, now stands as a cherished example of our nation's unique values. Radical Medicine is a visionary and politicized new history of medicare. It traces medicare's roots around the world--to the New Deal in the US, the October Revolution in Russia and the British Labour movement. From the 1930s to the early 1950s radical health advocates from around the Atlantic world debated how to achieve socialized medicine. Out of these debates, there emerged on the medical left a specific model for health equality--the health centre. Radical Medicine uses the personal histories of international health advocates, the history of ideas, policy debates, political insights as well as the role of emotion as a central force in social movements. Challenging dominant historical narratives that often depoliticize medicare's origins by treating it a simple manifestation of primordial prairie politics, Radical Medicine shows that, although medicare was shaped fundamentally by local forces and cultures, we can only understand its history in a world-historical context. As universal public health insurance programs crumble around the world, Radical Medicine is the medicare book we need now.

      Description
      In Violence No More, Wanda Nanibush offers a personal, political and historical account of violence against Indigenous women, children and two-spirited people. Nanibush connects the struggle for a national inquiry to the larger context of colonial violence from the state, from non-Indigenous men and within Indigenous communities where the trauma has turned inward. An informal and lively history of Indigenous women's activism, Violence No More maps the colonial routes and roots of this tragedy while also showing the massive, consistent and persistent resistance to it. Following the path of many Indigenous women before her, Nanibush offers potential solutions to the continued colonization of Indigenous bodies through violence.

      Description
      You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me is a biography of beloved American movie actor Dick Miller. Miller's fantastically storied life, the legendary people with whom he has worked and played, the times in which he's lived and the fascinating environments of both Broadway and Hollywood over the past seventy years are all thoroughly and engagingly explored in this first and only biography of the cult legend. The result of both extensive interviews and exhaustive research, You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me is at once story of how an unassuming guy stumbled into acting and became cult royalty, an epic love story of a man and his wife, a parallel story of an actor and his director (Corman), and a secret history of Hollywood. Referred to by Roger Corman as the "best actor in Hollywood" a favourite character actor of Quentin Tarantino, and in the words of Jonathan Demme, "a first-rate actor who makes any scene he's in better," Miller's particular magic continues to work itself on Hollywood elite and movie buffs alike.

      Well, it's about time! One of the most recognizable faces in movies has never had his full story told the way it is in You Don't Know Me, But You Love Me! It's a well-researched play-by-play of Dick Miller's long and varied career as an actor, writer, husband and friend to fledging directors (like I was when we met). No matter how big a fan you think you are, there's stuff in here you never knew!" - Joe Dante

      Description
      The grass really is greener on the other side. But a hideous troll has taken up residence under the bridge, and the promised land is forever unattainable - if you're a goat born on the wrong side of the craggy chasm. The troll is soon recruited to join the side of the underclass, but when the revolution is won, the victors become tyrants, and it's up to the troll to find a way to break the cycle of greed. Finally, everybody agrees that the green grass is for everybody to eat -- it's a timely parable about immigration, through the lens of the Three Billygoats Gruff, created by three celebrated Canadian theatre artists: Mercedes Bátiz-Benét, Brooke Maxwell, and Judd Palmer.
