      Description

      Festival of All Souls explores the experience of an Asian woman born in Canada. Although neither fully rooted in one or the other, the influence of two different cultures allows heritage, gender and values to nonetheless, enrich a personal vision. The title refers to an Asian ceremony whereby families visit ancestral gravesites in the spring to pay their respects to the departed. During this observance of tribute and commemoration, time is also provided for contemplation and the acknowledgement of renewal that is in harmony with the season. The poetry in this collection is guided by, and ultimately expands upon themes inspired by this ritual: cycles of fullness and loss, expressions of visible and hidden energy, as well as navigations through public and private space. A definition of soul widens to include within our human capacity--plants, animals, minerals, and even weather. Whether leaves pause on the rim of a jade plant bowl, a starling understands Cantonese, or waves lunge like white dragons across Lake Ontario, an invitation is extended to celebrate the diversity of being in this world.

      "Jean Eng is an intrepid poet who captures arresting images, and distills the essence in crystalline form. Animal spirits, ancestral voices, and cultural motifs appear at will in Festival of All Souls, enervating the quotidian like the waves of Lake Ontario, and the joy of learning a new language."
      --Carol Barbour, author of Infrangible

      "The Festival of All Souls is a delicately crafted debut collection. Jean Eng uses words with the finesse of a fencer, catching the reader unawares. A streetcar ride in the presence of a fruit fly, pivots "(w)ithout warning" to love, resilience, and "the gaudy tenderness of orange// seats." The Festival of All Souls navigates life's terrain with clarity, tenderness and a wry, piercing humour. There is not one false note."
      --Mary Lou Soutar-Hynes, author of Any Waking Morning

      "Accomplished visual artist Jean Eng's first full-length collection of poetry, Festival of All Souls, synthesizes her Asian heritage, love of nature, and splashes of surreal imagery with remarkable skill. Her title poem closes with, "the bird understands/ perfect Cantonese"--a whimsical example of how Eng animates her poetic landscape. The reader encounters ghosts, birds, flowers, childhood memories, old loves, and even a feminist inversion of Madame Butterfly ("Lady Dragonfly") calling for the protagonist to "Become a martial artist instead" and "Practice throwing the poison stars." This sort of mystical alchemy and dry sense of humour infuses Eng's work, showcasing a thoroughly original voice."
      --Myna Wallin, author of Anatomy of an Injury

      "This is a thrilling page-turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The foreground story is the conflict faced by immigrants facing a new land and a different culture reminiscent of writers like Bharati Mukherjee, Madeleine Thien, Saleema Nawaz, and Kim Thuy. This is a highly entertaining novel that also says much about contemporary Canadian society."

      Description

      Thirty-two-year-old Kang is a new immigrant in Toronto. Having an older sister who was raped and suffers from the ensuing stigma in China, Kang is determined to remain a spinster, which has its own stigma in China, and she struggles with her fear and distrust of men. But Kang's story is not a hard luck story. She is an intelligent woman and a successful immigrant. Kang deals with the perplexities of a different culture by maintaining a sense of curiosity, an enjoyment of learning about the new culture, and by finding humour rather than the humiliation that so often characterizes descriptions of immigrant experience. Kang rooms with Tania, a Russian immigrant, and learns that many years earlier, Tanya was in love with a Chinese medical student at Moscow University who was abruptly returned to China for having had a relationship with her. Kang's own father once studied at that university but has never talked about it since he was forced to leave Moscow and then was labelled as a rightist during the Chinese Anti-Rightist Campaign. Since then her father has been dispatched to work and live in Kunming, a city far away from Beijing. Could the paths of her father and Tania have ever crossed? Curious about her father's past, Kang decides to pay a visit to Moscow, accompanied by Brian, Tania's nephew, a charming engineer who wants to explore his Russian Jewish roots. Spending time with Brian helps Kang to see how much her sister's tragedy has shadowed her life. When Brian suddenly shows symptoms of schizophrenia, Kang must decide whether to throw her spinster's hat away or end her relationship with Brian.

      Description

      The Scent of Mogra and Other Stories is a collection of four short stories about strong female characters dealing with difficult life-changing situations. The turmoil that they face is, often, the result of a social structure that discriminates against women. Through these powerful women characters, the stories reflect attitudes and ways of life in a village in India, and in modern day Mumbai; they highlight the values of an older generation, and the dreams of a new one. Beneath all their differences,

      The Scent of Mogra and Other Stories illuminate the quality of women's lives, exposing the pain, the injustices, as well as the triumphs that make up their existence.

      "These stories explore women's souls. A bride writes letters that record her own "vanishing" in the prison of her marriage. Other women's lives are determined by the living and the dead as they make "homes in many cities" from the Sabarmati River to Lake Ontario. Spirits, memories and dreams live inside their pressing realities. The world needs all our stories and Aparna Kaji Shah tells hers with honesty and poignancy in this new collection."

      "The stories in this collection are touching and give readers a glimpse into the inner world of the modern Indian woman as she traverses different spaces."

      "Children Shouldn’t Use Knives is like bittersweet chocolate, darkly evocative and tender-tough in its imaginings. Her scant, spare words interpretatively arrayed with Cindy Mochizuki’s visual musings and prefaced with excerpts from well-known children’s writers provide the reader with a truly rich reading experience." —Sally Ito, author, Alert to Glory

      "If childhood was a room, Shirley Camia’s Children Shouldn’t Use Knives paces off the corners, fiddles with the light switch, and breaks the blinds. Camia writes 'the dawn has a skeleton rattle,' and we see all the moments of boredom and crisis, the lights and darks, all the joys and confusions of being young, of being alive." —Ariel Gordon, author, Stowaways, winner of the 2015 Lansdowne Prize for Poetry

The ones who respected children enough to show them the shortcut through the dark woods. Each poem, slight and vulnerable as a seven-year- old, examines the courage it takes to grow up. Illustrated by Cindy Mochizuki with evocative sketches, this book will haunt you with your own half-remembered past." --Janet Trull, author, Hot Town and Other Stories"This is a work to be read slowly. One must absorb the words, the visuals, the sensations and sentiments - ones that touch our most tender selves. The book uses poetry to link childhood readings and intimacies with tales that reveal truths in the most poignant way." --Leanne Dunic, author, To Love the Coming End"Disturbing but delightful. Children Shouldn't Use Knives And Other Tales reads and looks like a nightmare version of a Shel Silverstein book." --Jonathan Ball, Winnipeg English professor, award-winning author and poet"Disturbing but delightful, Camia's sharp, stark poems unfold crumpled childhood memories and meditate on the beauty of their horror." --Jonathan Ball, Winnipeg Free Press"Camia peddles in subtle ambiances rather than ornate descriptions and so the slight poems tremble while casting long and enigmatic silhouettes--the collection is a shadow puppet show where small hand gestures become animated monsters. Mochizuki's complementary illustrations conspire to create a shadowy, dreamy atmosphere." --Adele Barclay, Room Magazine

      Description
      Meena's Story: Flight to Freedom" is set around true events. Covering a span of nearly 80 years. It begins when her mother, Elizabeth stumbles into the arms of a handsome Indian man, Ali, in London. It is love at first sight. Ali has to leave England and return home to Hyderabad. Elizabeth finds it impossible to stay on in England without her love and she boards a P&O liner and surprises Ali in Hyderabad.

      Enduring cultural challenges laced with comic and ironic instances, the couple are accepted by Ali's widowed mother, uncle and aunt and other family members and are married through Muslim rites, starting life in Hyderabad. Ali's mother gives her new daughter-in-law the Muslim name of Zarina.

      Political and religious events following the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan in 1947 present Ali with an option to move to the newly created nation of Pakistan. Ali decides to leave Hyderabad with Zarina and their two daughters, Sayeeda and Meena, and two sons Danny and Tayeb. Zarina is pregnant with another child at this time.

      Events don't turn out well. In Pakistan, Ali is looked upon as an immigrant -- a Mujahar -- and faces hostility all around. Even though he finds a good position in a transport company, others are not pleased. On his way to drop the children to school, Ali's car is involved in a head on collision on a deserted street. The driver and a neighbor's traveling with them are killed. Ali and Meena are seriously injured. Three days later, Ali succumbs to his injuries. Circumstances surrounding the accident are suspicious, but investigations are deferred.

      The grieving family is helped back to Hyderabad. But Zarina, distraught,decides to return to England to her mother with the children. But Ali's Uncle Mirza and Aunty Zainab beg her to leave Saeeda behind with them. Reluctantly, Zarina agrees. Bu,t at the airport, the two sisters Meena and Saeeda cling to each other weeping. They are inseparable! Overwhelmed, Zarina decides to leave the two girls behind and fly to London with her two boys.

      Several years pass by. The girls grow up in comfort in Aunty Zainab and Uncle Mirza's home.. But the sisters cannot banish from their minds the horror of the accident that killed their father. They share and relive the terrifying accident. Uncle and Aunt notice their pain and do their best to comfort the girls. The girls grow up, finish their schooling and have marriages arranged for them. Saeeda moves to England with her husband, an eye specialist. Meena marries a journalist, moves to his home and together they have two sons. During all this time, Zarina returns only once briefly to Hyderabad.

      Fresh social and political upheavals trigger another dislocation in Meena and her husband's lives. The deteriorating political situation in Hyderabad renders life difficult. A sister-in-law living in Canada helps them immigrate to Canada. The family stops in London, en route for a joyous re-union with their mother and brothers, and spend a wonderful week in the Isle of Whyte where her mother now lives.

      Once in Canada, Meena's husband is able to find a good job in Calgary which is a flourishing new city. The family adjust to their new life and beautiful surroundings quite easily. But, for Meena, the past will not let her be. The trauma she experienced in her childhood has left a permanent mark in her mind and she explains it best when she says, "We all have something quiet and sad in our hearts."

      In Ghost Face by Greg Santos, we balance gracefully between the past, the present, and steadily through what haunts us. With each engaging poem, we’re reminded that stories shape our world and how poetry invites us in to partake in the narrative. In a history made of tweezers, / removing a splinter from a child’s palm, we question, Dear ghosts, / where do your atoms reside?–with pain comes healing, with history comes inquiry. Santos’ poems are inventive, smart, and skillfully written and his work does not disappoint. Ghost Face is a beautiful collection that thoughtfully examines family mythologies, identity, and a longstanding belief in ghosts. These are poems I kept returning to, a book I could not put down. –KELLI RUSSELL AGODON, AUTHOR OF HOURGLASS MUSEUM & THE DAILY POET: DAY-BY-DAY PROMPTS FOR YOUR WRITING PRACTICE

      Description
      The characters in these ten stories are longing for escape and attempt to leave home, but inevitably and perhaps ironically find themselves homesick. Chih-Ying Lay, a Montreal-based expatriate from Taiwan familiar with both homesickness and home sickness, probes our desperate need for home, often matched with an equally desperate need to get away from it. Lay's characters are outsiders, whether queer, indigenous, unloved or lost, and each discovers that home is not the sanctuary it was meant to be. Sometimes, they find a place to call their very own, as if to tell the reader: You can, too.
      Bio
      Born in Taipei, Chih-Ying Lay came to Canada in 2008 to obtain his Ph.D. in Microbiology at McGill University. Stories from his first collection, The Escapist, published in Taiwan in 2008, have been awarded the Formosa Literature Prize and the Liberty Times Literature Prize. He has published a novel, The Ideal Family (2012), and another collection of short fiction, The Comic Lives of Losers (2016). A guest broadcaster both in Taiwan and for Radio Canada International in Montreal, he sings in Ensemble Sainte-Anne Singers and Musica Orbium and works as a senior research scientist in Montreal.

      Description
      Xue Yiwei's life has been marked by that of the legendary Montreal surgeon Norman Bethune, who died in China in the cause of Communism. Like other Chinese of his generation - the generation that has turned China into the world power it is today - Xue Yiwei was inspired by Dr. Bethune's example during the Cultural Revolution. But unlike his peers, he went to the lengths of moving to Montreal, where he has lived for sixteen years as a writer acclaimed in China and - until now - unknown in Canada. This subversive novel is the story that only he could write.Dr. Bethune's Children, which is banned in China (it is available only in a Chinese language version published in Taiwan), focuses on individual lives marked by some of the traumatic events of recent decades that have been veiled by official secrecy. In showing us the effects of the distress and repression that have marked his whole generation, Xue Yiwei unveils the human heart.

      Xue Yiwei is a maverick in contemporary Chinese literature. He stays alone and aloof, far away from restive crowds back in his homeland. For him, to write is to make a pilgrimage to his masters: Joyce, Borges, Calvino, Proust. He writes with deep devotion and intense concentration. His fiction often meditates on life, history, violence, exile. This selection of stories can open a window into the fiction world he has constructed. As an admirer of his, I salute his courage, his stamina, and his love of solitude.--Ha Jin, National Book Award winning novelist
