      Description
      Beginning in the 1950s, White Album charts the life of a young woman born in India, growing up in Canada during an era of explosive change, both cultural and political. Set to the music of the last half-century, White Album poses provocative questions: What is an identity? How does the noise of history - the chanting crowds, the gunshots, the guitar feedback - soundtrack our sense of self? Blurring together diverse media, White Album blends the words of award-winning poet Rishma Dunlop with the paintings of acclaimed artist Suzanne Northcott. The result is a groundbreaking, interdisciplinary collection - a montage of brilliant images, driven by a blistering soundtrack of language.

      A lyrical analysis of the intersections between poetic speech and music, intertwined with the history of black/white relations in America.Digitopia Blues is a fluid narrative about orality and literacy -- their individual histories, and their blended futures. Musician and poet John Sobol pinpoints the African American struggle to find a language of revolutionary power through orality and music, as well as the literate poet's impulse to transcend the printed page. Then he locates literacy and orality in the new digital media, in rap, in rave and even in Napster. Sobol's book is intertwined with the stories of the blues, jazz and rock 'n' roll, the powerful world of the printed word and the potential dangers and advantages that digital communications technologies offer people of colour.

      "Briskly paced and superbly written, Digitopia Blues provides a lucid account of the history of African-American music, a music that has become, for better or worse, the world's. His book begs to be read, and what's more, it begs to be discussed." -Martin Turenne, Georgia Straight

When one of them shows up dead, Randy, as usual, finds herself a prime suspect with a motive and no alibi in sight.As bodies pile up, Randy finds herself forcefully distanced from her police investigator boyfriend Steve, who is assigned to the case. Not helping her relationship is the arrival of an intensely sexy researcher from the Smithsonian Institute, with a penchant for wandering around his hotel room clothed in not much more than a towel.Summertime in the Festival City of Edmonton is off to a very hot start and stands to get even hotter.
