      Powerful stories that explore the legacy of colonialism, and issues of race, immigration, sexual discrimination, and class in the lives of Jamaican women across London, Panama, France, Jamaica, Florida and more

      The Islands follows the lives of Jamaican women—immigrants or the descendants of immigrants—who have relocated all over the world to escape the ghosts of colonialism on what they call the Island. Set in the United States, Jamaica, and Europe, these international stories examine the lives of an uncertain and unsettled cast of characters. In one story, a woman and her husband impulsively leave San Francisco and move to Florida with wild dreams of American reinvention only to unearth the cracks in their marriage. In another, the only Jamaican mother—who is also a touring comedienne—at a prep school feels pressure to volunteer in the school’s International Day. Meanwhile, in a third story, a travel writer finally connects with the mother who once abandoned her.

      Set in locations and times ranging from 1950s London to 1960s Panama to modern-day New Jersey, Dionne Irving reveals the intricacies of immigration and assimilation in this debut, establishing a new and unforgettable voice in Caribbean-American literature. Restless, displaced, and disconnected, these characters try to ground themselves—to grow where they find themselves planted—in a world in which the tension between what’s said and unsaid can bend the soul.
      DIONNE IRVING is originally from Toronto, Ontario. Her work has appeared in Story, Boulevard, LitHub, Missouri Review, and New Delta Review, among other journals and magazines. Her first novel Quint came out in the fall of 2021.She currently teaches in the Creative Writing Program and the Initiative on Race and Resilience at the University of Notre Dame, and lives in Indiana with her husband and son.

      The Millions, A Most Anticipated Book of the Year

      “[An] electric collection…The collection teaches us what kinds of respites can be found in diaspora—fleeting, begrudging, but real nonetheless.” —Brenda Peynado, The New York Times Book Review

      “An expansive collection…For many of the characters, finding their place in the world, where they will be accepted and truly assimilate, is the running theme of their lives—the quintessential immigrant story, no matter where and when in time. I love this new voice giving life to Caribbean stories.” —Keishel Williams, A NPR Best Book of the Year

      “Immigration and assimilation are potent themes in novelist Dionne Irving’s first collection of stories…From a mother at a posh school tasked with bringing food to International Day to a couple fleeing San Francisco, these tales from the 1950s to today, from Jamaica and Panama to the U.S and beyond, are written in accessible, warm prose that captivates the reader.” —Zibby Owens, Good Morning America

      “Irving navigates immigration, colonialism, issues of race and discrimination, and nuanced family relationships…though the subject matter of these 10 stories is serious, humor and humanness shine through.” —Sarah Layden, Indianapolis Monthly

      “[A] powerful debut short story collection.” —Alison S. Cohn and Ariana Marsh, Harper’s Bazaar

      “As entertaining as it is gut wrenching, as enlightening as it is striking.” —Jordan Snowden, Apartment Therapy

      “A grand achievement…These twelve stories sing in their lyricism and complexity—a hallmark of an exciting new voice in literature.” —Chicago Review of Books

      “That rare short story collection that jumps from narrator to narrator, from place to place, from year to year, and still remains unified…[Her stories] suggest that sometimes a person might wish to be an island, to slough off from the mainland and stake out a tiny claim of space for themselves. Irving’s narrators insist that sometimes vows have run their course, that sometimes there’s no greater freedom than letting go.“ —Bekah Waalkes, Ploughshares

      ”Irving’s elegant prose and eye for the just perfect-unexpected detail pulled me in.“ —CJ Hauser, Electric Literature

      ”Deeply satisfying…Irving writes with an easy openness, her sentences seemingly straightforward, in stories with much that can be inferred between the lines: inequity, imbalance, erasure. She has a remarkable talent for understated, multilayered density that reveals stifling responsibilities, desperate dreams and fluttering hopes.“ —Shelf Awareness

      ”In a series of 12 stories as sparkling and sharp-edged as cut diamonds, Irving explores the multifaceted experiences of Jamaican expats…Irving wields the written word as a sharp-tooled instrument, incising the lasting effects of colonialism and family dysfunction.“ —Booklist (starred review)

      ”In this assured collection, Canadian writer Irving follows the threads of colonialism, exile, and immigration throughout the 20th and 21st centuries…The international range and scope of her collection give it breadth and freshness…Her prose is smooth and unfussy.“ —Kirkus Reviews

      ”[A] penetrating collection… In lucid prose, Irving depicts her characters’ chilly shocks over unexpected gaps in intimacy with their loved ones as they work to fit into non-immigrant Black spaces, making for stories that are both class-conscious and richly atmospheric. Irving’s inviting combination of subjects and style heralds a welcome new voice.“ —Publishers Weekly

      ”Dionne Irving’s groundbreaking debut collection is as insightful as it is unflinching. At times humorous and at times heartbreaking, The Islands illuminates the complex history and current condition of the far-flung Jamaican diaspora, bringing it to the page as it’s never before been seen. Cultures collide between and within households, between and within characters, making for compelling stories about identity and belonging. An unforgettable read and a balm for anyone still searching for home.“ —Jonathon Escoffery, author of If I Survive You

      ”The stories in The Islands are darkly comic, raw, and boldly propulsive. Irving is attentive to the inner landscapes of the women who leave the Island in search of a place where they can be distinctly themselves, unmediated by the legacies of colonialism. The Islands is a radiant, at times surreal, and complex meditation on identity and the tragic absurdity of the search for home." —Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi, author of Savage Tongues

    The Come Up An Oral History of the Rise of Hip-Hop Jonathan Abrams
    9781984825131 Hardcover MUSIC / Genres & Styles On Sale Date:October 18, 2022

      The essential oral history of hip-hop, from its origins on the playgrounds of the Bronx to its reign as the most powerful force in pop culture

      The music that would come to be known as hip-hop was born at a party in the Bronx in the summer of 1973. Now, fifty years later, it’s the most popular music genre in America. Just as jazz did in the first half of the twentieth century, hip-hop and its groundbreaking DJs and artists—nearly all of them people of color from some of America’s most overlooked communities—pushed the boundaries of music to new frontiers.

      And yet, the stories of many hip-hop pioneers are at risk of being lost forever. Now, in The Come Up, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Abrams offers the most comprehensive account so far of hip-hop’s rise. In more than 300 interviews conducted over three years, Abrams has captured the stories of the DJs, executives, producers, and artists who both witnessed and themselves forged the history of hip-hop. Masterfully combining these voices into a symphonic narrative, Abrams traces how the genre grew out of the resourcefulness of a neglected population in the South Bronx, and from there how it flowed into the city’s other boroughs, and beyond—from electrifying live gatherings onto radio and vinyl, below to the Mason-Dixon line, to the West Coast through gangster rap and G-funk, and then across generations.

      Abrams has on record Grandmaster Caz detailing hip-hop’s infancy, Edward “Duke Bootee” Fletcher describing the origins of “The Message,” DMC narrating his role in introducing hip-hop to the mainstream, Ice Cube recounting N.W.A’s breakthrough and breakup, Kool Moe Dee recounting his Grammys boycott, and countless more key players. Throughout, Abrams conveys with singular vividness the drive, the stakes, and the relentless creativity that ignited one of the greatest revolutions in modern music.
      Jonathan Abrams is the New York Times bestselling author of Boys Among Men and All the Pieces Matter. An award-winning staff reporter for The New York Times, he was previously a staff writer at Bleacher Report, Grantland, and the Los Angeles Times, and is a graduate of the University of Southern California.

      “A masterpiece in book form. After conducting over 300 interviews over the course of three years, [Jonathan] Abrams has accomplished the incredible feat of detailing the rise of hip-hop straight from the creators of the genre themselves.”—Spin

      “Abrams’s beautifully edited book concentrates on hip-hop’s rise, perfectly capturing the excitement of its gathering momentum and regional spread, taking the time to dig deeper than the big names.”The Guardian

      “It’s an extraordinary tale, the story of how a grassroots culture created itself from the streets and became an international force. To his credit, Abrams doesn’t just talk to the architects. He also gets input from the stonemasons, the contractors and the other heavy lifters. It’s the oral history hip-hop deserves as its beat goes on.”—Los Angeles Times

      The Come Up…is a riveting account of how rap carried hip-hop culture from obscurity to ubiquity, from disrespected to winning the Pulitzer Prize—and how it should have been getting that respect all along.”—Andscape
      “An ambitious collection of firsthand accounts of hip-hop’s birth and ultimate rise as the gravitational center of pop culture.”—Okayplayer
      “Monumental and comprehensive…Sourced from years of in-depth interviews, The Come Up: An Oral History of the Rise of Hip-Hop chronicles the culture from its origins on the playgrounds of the Bronx to its ongoing reign as the most powerful force in popular culture.”—Rock the Bells

      “Jonathan Abrams, for the entirety of his career and regardless of the subject matter, has shown a profound ability to take the words and recollections of others and stitch them together into something big and special. The Come Up is Abrams at his sharpest, at his most observant, at his most insightful.”—Shea Serrano, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hip-Hop (And Other Things)

      “Hip-hop is a story machine, and Jonathan Abrams is unsurpassed in capturing the best of them. What Please Kill Me did for punk rock, The Come Up has done for hip-hop. These are the tales that made a movement.”—Jeff Chang, author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

      “Abrams set out to accomplish a task that sounds absurd: assemble an oral history of hip-hop from the five boroughs to the Bay and from Memphis to Miami, and the ascendance of everyone from G-Funk to G-Unit. Brilliantly curated and meticulously reported, this book will last for decades.”—Jeff Weiss, founder of Passion of the Weiss

      “To say this book is incredible simply doesn’t do it justice. It’s essential—a primary source. Eat this book. Steal this book.”—Cheo Hodari Coker, creator of Marvel’s Luke Cage and author of Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of The Notorious B.I.G.

      “It’s one thing to say you want to write an oral history on hip-hop. It’s another thing to actually do it. The result is special—even for one of this country’s truly legendary storytellers.”—Justin Tinsley, author of It Was All a Dream

      “A sweeping and mesmerizing story that spans time and mortal space so expertly and elegantly.” —Alan Cumming

      A deeply moving novel about a forbidden love between two boys in war-torn Syria and the fallout that ripples through their adult lives.

      Syria, 2003. A blooming romance leads to a tragic accident when Hussam’s father catches him acting on his feelings for his best friend, Wassim. In an instant, the course of their lives is changed forever.

      Ten years later, Hussam and Wassim are still struggling to find peace and belonging. Sponsored as a refugee by a controlling older man, Hussam is living an openly gay life in Vancouver, where he attempts to quiet his demons with sex, drugs, and alcohol. Wassim is living on the streets of Damascus, having abandoned a wife and child and a charade he could no longer keep up. Taking shelter in a deserted villa, he unearths the previous owner’s buried secrets while reckoning with his own.

      The past continues to reverberate through the present as Hussam and Wassim come face to face with heartache, history, drag queens, border guards, and ghosts both literal and figurative.

      Masterfully crafted and richly detailed, The Foghorn Echoes is a gripping novel about how to carve out home in the midst of war, and how to move forward when the war is within yourself.
      DANNY RAMADAN (he/him) is a Syrian-Canadian author, public speaker, and advocate for LGBTQ+ refugees. His debut novel, The Clothesline Swing, was shortlisted for the Lambda Literary Award, longlisted for Canada Reads, and named a Best Book of the Year by The Globe and Mail and Toronto Star. He has an MFA in Creative Writing from UBC and currently lives in Vancouver with his husband.

      The Foghorn Echoes is a deeply moving book about conflict both internal and external, the ways in which cold accidents—of birth, of place, of time—can leave a human being at war with their own desires, their own sense of self. Danny Ramadan is a gifted, sensitive excavator of the things that break people and put them back together, the past as weight and lightness. In this novel he has created a world of immense sensory and emotional precision, at once true in its living details and yet electric with the presence of ghosts.”
      —Omar El Akkad, author of What Strange Paradise
      “‘Treat your thoughts like hurt children. They haven’t learned yet how to handle pain.’ So says a wise ghost in Danny Ramadan’s sweeping and mesmerising story that spans time and mortal space so expertly and elegantly. This is a beautiful novel, written by a once hurt child and loved and deeply admired by another—me.”
      —Alan Cumming, author of Baggage
      “A heart-wrenching and gorgeous tale that spans across borders and time. Danny Ramadan introduces us to Hussam and Wassim, granting us intimate access to their desires, flaws, secrets, failures, and triumphs. They grapple with the consequences of their identities, attempt to quench their longings and loneliness, and find and make peace within themselves against the backdrop of war, migration, queerness, and the echoes of their particular histories. The Foghorn Echoes is a probing and triumphant story, deftly rendered with depth, compassion, lightness, and joy.”
      —Francesca Ekwuyasi, author of Butter Honey Pig Bread
      The Foghorn Echoes reminded me of The Kite Runner, with its characters haunted by love and hunted by loss—across oceans, timelines, and warzones. This is a contemporary, mystical, and timeless novel about friendship, loss, acceptance, hope, but most of all love. I didn’t want it to end.”
      —Lemn Sissay, author of My Name Is Why
      “I’ve read many stories about love and war. Few have moved me this much. The Foghorn Echoes is marvellous: subtle but dramatic, tender but urgent, and beautifully written. I’ll be thinking about it for a very long time.”
      —Dina Nayeri, author of The Ungrateful Refugee

      The Foghorn Echoes bristles. It burns bright. It shouts into the dark with a voice that hovers between a melody and a lamentation. Danny Ramadan writes in these pages with a spellbinding urgency, stripping bare some of the most painful and fundamental truths about displacement and grief, about rage and betrayal. In the process, he reminds us again and again that even the worst of memories contain redemptive powers. This novel is a tender and impassioned love story for a country, for a people, and for all those who refuse to disappear quietly into the land of the forgotten.”
      Maaza Mengiste, author of The Shadow King

      “Gives a vivid sense of Syria under the Assad regime…powerful and compassionate.”

    • Marketing Copy

      From Pulitzer Prize–winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout comes a poignant, pitch-perfect novel about a former couple in lockdown together—and the love, loss, despair, and hope that animate us even as the world seems to be falling apart.

      With her trademark spare, crystalline prose—a voice infused with “intimate, fragile, desperate humanness” (The Washington Post)—Elizabeth Strout once again turns her exquisitely-tuned eye to the inner workings of the human heart, this time following the indomitable heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton and Oh William! through the early days of the pandemic.

      As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and longtime friend, William. For the next several months, it’s just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea. They will not emerge unscathed.

      Rich with empathy and emotion, Lucy by the Sea vividly captures the fear, struggles, and isolation that come with life in a global pandemic, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us even when we’re apart—the pain of a beloved daughter’s suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love. “We all live with people—and places—and things—that we have given great weight to,” Lucy says. “But we are weightless, in the end.”

      Praise for Lucy by the Sea

      “Graceful, deceptively light . . . Lucy’s done the hard work of transformation. May we do the same.”The New York Times

      Lucy by the Sea has an anecdotal surface that belies a firm underlying structure. It is meant to feel like life—random, surprising, occasionally lit with flashes of larger meaning—but it is art.”The New Yorker

      “No novelist working today has Strout’s extraordinary capacity for radical empathy, for seeing the essence of people beyond reductive categories, for uniting us without sentimentality. I didn’t just love Lucy by the Sea; I needed it. May droves of readers come to feel enlarged, comforted, and genuinely uplifted by Lucy’s story.”The Boston Globe

      Praise for Elizabeth Strout

      “One proof of Elizabeth Strout’s greatness is the sleight of hand with which she injects sneaky subterranean power into seemingly transparent prose. Strout works in the realm of everyday speech, conjuring repetitions, gaps and awkwardness with plain language and forthright diction, yet at the same time unleashing a tidal urgency that seems to come out of nowhere even as it operates in plain sight.”The New York Times Book Review

      “Strout managed to make me love this strange woman I’d never met, who I knew nothing about. What a terrific writer she is.”—Zadie Smith

      “Elizabeth Strout is one of my very favorite writers. The depth, complexity, and love contained in these pages are a miraculous achievement.”—Ann Patchett

      “Writing of this quality comes from a commitment to listening, from a perfect attunement to the human condition, from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue.”—Hilary Mantel

      “You’ll inhale this tell-all book about the tobacco industry and never look at a No Smoking sign the same way again!”

      —Margaret Atwood, via Twitter

      Mad Men meets Bad Blood in this addictive, behind-the-scenes globe-trotting narrative of moral ambiguity, law, public policy, and big tobacco.

      “Given everything the lawyer knew up to that point about smoking, as far as he could tell, cigarettes shouldn’t even have been available as a mass market product…”

      It’s the start of the new millennium and a young lawyer is recruited to work for an unnamed multinational company. It isn’t until his second interview that the product the company produces is revealed to him: cigarettes. Possibly the most controversial consumer product in human history: seductive, addictive, and deadly—yet completely legal. Over the next decade, he travels the world as he works as legal counsel to successfully market cigarettes in dozens of countries.

      Firebrand ventures into the heart of the tobacco industry and the icy paradoxes of capitalism, each chapter a counterintuitive lesson on how cigarette companies, the target of anti-smoking campaigns by health authorities, pivoted and recovered after the seismic 1964 Surgeon General’s Report and 200-billion-dollar debt of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement—and are now thriving, drenched in profits from their one billion smokers worldwide. As Mad Men did for the alcohol-fuelled, oversexed, corrupt world of New York advertising, Firebrand does for the even more despised world of big tobacco, in an addictive piece of storytelling that spans the globe. The lawyer’s work takes him from manufacturing factories to hocking “sticks” at UK corner store counters; from tacky resorts in Spain and pirate city-states to luxury hotels and Grand Prix events across European and Asian cities. A contemporary tale of our ambiguous times, told through the eyes of an anti-hero created by our corporate age.

      Written with the character-based gusto and narrative flare akin to Michael Lewis, and the behind-the-scenes intrigue of Bad Blood and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, Firebrand is a compelling paradox of corporate responsibility, public health, and an engrossing tale of a morally dubious yet completely legal enterprise.

      “You’ll inhale this tell-all book about the tobacco industry and never look at a No Smoking sign the same way again!”
      —Margaret Atwood, via Twitter

      “This is storytelling at its best. Wry observation, compelling narrative, fascinating characters, page-turning writing, and an age-old question driving it all: how is it that those who profit from harm get away with it, even when everyone knows what they are up to? Illusion is the answer, says Joshua Knelman—the craft of its practitioners, and the ready acceptance of its targets. That is Firebrand’s story about big tobacco. It is as thrilling for its revelations as it is sobering for its conclusions.”
      —Joel Bakan, author of The New Corporation: How ‘Good’ Corporations are Bad for Democracy

      Firebrand is a beautifully written, riveting tale of one man’s journey into the world of gilded evil that has seduced billions, enticing them into the embrace of the deadliest product ever invented. Joshua Knelman is a gifted storyteller, guiding us through the moral forensics of this goliath of death and pleasure as it takes over the soul of one of those who entered its portals.”
      —Martyn Burke, Peabody Award–winning film director of Under Fire: Journalists in Combat

      “Yes, this is about the slick maneuvering of international cigarette companies. But it’s also about how corporations navigate legislation, and how policy is never as clear-cut as it looks—especially through the eyes of a lawyer. Firebrand is addictive.”
      —Jeff Rubin, former Chief Economist at CIBC World Markets, and author of The Expendables

      “One of the year’s most remarkable books, [Firebrand] brilliantly untangles what Knelman calls ‘the tobacco paradox’ — how the tobacco trade thrives as much, if not more, than it ever has — and its many ironies.”
      —Toronto Star

      “Ever wondered why the most dangerous consumer product ever invented—the cigarette—is still legally available for sale? Joshua Knelman takes us deep inside the global tobacco industry to reveal a story of corporate greed, international intrigue, and the complicity of public policy in the face of big money. Firebrand offers a compelling case study in our addiction to capitalism, in a book that will make your heart race and your blood boil.”
      —Andrew Westoll, RBC Taylor Prize–winning author of The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary

      “The most fun book on the tobacco business since Christopher Buckley’s Thank You for Smoking, with the added virtue of being grounded in real experience.”
      Washington Examiner

      “How has the tobacco industry ’managed to survive decades of intense and sustained assault by the medical and scientific establishment, and from governments around the world’? In this entertaining and occasionally enraging investigation, journalist Knelman (Hot Art) seeks to answer that question…Packed with colorful insider details and nuanced analysis, this is a stimulating tell-all.”
      Publishers Weekly

      “Knelman lights up every deeply-reported and finely-observed chapter of Firebrand with wit and insight. A rollicking and riveting insider’s tour of an insidious global industry.”
      —Rachel Giese, author of Boys: What it Means to Become a Man

      “As addictive as the subject matter, Knelman’s storytelling breathes intrigue, high-drama, and humour on to every page, while guiding us through the nebulous business of a killer industry. One helluva good read.”
      —Garvia Bailey, broadcaster and co-founder, Media Girlfriends

      “WARNING: Firebrand is a thriller told from deep inside global capitalism’s secret chambers, where few of us ever get to tread. The story will make your palms sweat and your heart race, a staggering achievement.”
      —Richard Poplak, author of Paydirt: What the Search for Gold has Cost the World

      Firebrand is a brilliant insider’s look at the shadowy jurisdictions and sly legal loopholes that have helped a global pariah like the tobacco industry not only survive but thrive. A captivating narrative told at a thriller’s pace, it’s a master class in how the international corporate world really works—a triumph in business storytelling.”
      —Marci McDonald, award-winning journalist and author of The Armageddon Factor
      “Informative and addictive, Firebrand is an insider’s view of the high stakes billion dollar international business of big tobacco that reads like a great conversation at a bar. From the backstreets of London to a dubious bar in Kazakhstan, to a Formula 1 racetrack and the storerooms of modern Spanish pirates, Joshua Knelman takes you on an epic journey to the contradictory heart of one of humanity’s most pleasurable and deadly inventions.”
      —Jason Logan, multi-award-winning Creative Director and author of Make Ink: A Forager’s Guide To Natural Inkmaking

      “[T]he pleasure of Knelman’s fast-paced Firebrand: A Tobacco Lawyer’s Journey comes in a variety of ways. For starters, you know who the bad guys are right from the get-go (the tobacco giants). The central figure is a young Canadian lawyer who stays unnamed from beginning to end as he goes about the bad guys’ business of keeping the lethal but legal product ever available to the addicted masses. His tale, as told by Knelman, has something of the style of a John Grisham thriller.”

    Lifesavers and Body Snatchers Medical Care and the Struggle for Survival in the Great War Tim Cook Canada

      From Canada’s top war historian, a definitive medical history of the Great War, illuminating how the carnage of modern battle gave birth to revolutionary life-saving innovations. It brings to light shocking revelations of the ways the brutality of combat and the necessity of agonizing battlefield decisions led to unimaginable strain for men and women of medicine who fought to save the lives of soldiers.

      Medical care in almost all armies during the Great War, and especially in the Canadian medical services, was sophisticated and constantly evolving. Vastly more wounded soldiers were saved than lost. Doctors and surgeons prevented disease from decimating armies, confronted ghastly wounds from chemical weap-ons, remade shattered bodies, and struggled to ease soldiers’ battle-haunted minds. After the war, the hard lessons learned by doctors and nurses were brought back to Canada. A new Department of Health created guidelines in the aftermath of the 1918–1919 influ-enza pandemic, which had killed 55,000 Canadians and millions around the world. In a grim irony, the fight to improve civilian health was furthered by the most destructive war up to that point in human history.

      But medical advances were not the only thing brought back from Europe: Lifesavers and Body Snatchers exposes the disturbing story of the harvesting of human body parts in medical units behind the lines. Tim Cook has spent over a decade investigating the history of Canadian medical doctors removing the body parts of slain soldiers and transporting their brains, lungs, bones, and other organs to the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) in London, England. Almost 800 individual body parts were removed from the dead and sent to London, where they were stored, treated, and presented in exhibition galleries. After being exhibited there, the body parts were displayed in Canada. This uncovered history has never been told before and is part of the hidden legacy of the medical war.

      Based on deep archival research and unpublished letters of soldiers and medical personnel, Lifesavers and Body Snatchers is a powerful narrative, told in Cook’s literary style, which reveals how the medical services supported the soldiers at the front and forged a profound legacy in shaping Canadian public health in the decades that followed.
      TIM COOK is Chief Historian and Director of Research at the Canadian War Museum. His bestselling books have won multiple awards, including three Ottawa Book prizes for Literary Non-Fiction and two C.P. Stacey Awards for the best book in Canadian military history. In 2008 he won the J.W. Dafoe Prize for At the Sharp End and again in 2018 for Vimy: The Battle and the Legend. Shock Troops won the 2009 Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction. Cook is a frequent commentator in the media, and a member of the Royal Society of Canada and the Order of Canada.

      An urgent first novel about breaching the prisons we live inside from one of Canada’s most daring literary talents.

      An unnamed narrator abandons his unfinished thesis and returns to northern Alberta in search of what eludes him: the shape of the novel he yearns to write, an autobiography of his rural hometown, the answers to existential questions about family, love, and happiness.

      What ensues is a series of conversations, connections, and disconnections that reveals the texture of life in a town literature has left unexplored, where the friction between possibility and constraint provides an insistent background score.

      Whether he’s meeting with an auntie distraught over the imprisonment of her grandson, engaging in rez gossip with his cousin at a pow wow, or lingering in bed with a married man after a hotel room hookup, the narrator makes space for those in his orbit to divulge their private joys and miseries, testing the theory that storytelling can make us feel less lonely.

      Populated by characters as alive and vast as the boreal forest, and culminating in a breathtaking crescendo, A Minor Chorus is a novel about how deeply entangled the sayable and unsayable can become—and about how ordinary life, when pressed, can produce hauntingly beautiful music.
      BILLY-RAY BELCOURT (he/him) is a writer from the Driftpile Cree Nation. He won the 2018 Griffin Poetry Prize for his debut collection, This Wound Is a World, which was also a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award. His bestselling memoir, A History of My Brief Body, won the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award and the Governor General’s Literary Award. A recipient of the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship and an Indspire Award, Belcourt is Assistant Professor of Indigenous Creative Writing at UBC.

      BC Book Prize's Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize 2023, Short-listed
      Scotiabank Giller Prize 2022, Long-listed

      Named a Best Book of the Year by the Globe and Mail, Indigo, and CBC

      “No one breaks your heart as elegantly as Billy-Ray Belcourt. Innovative, intimate, and meticulous, A Minor Chorus is a thoughtful riot of intersections and juxtapositions, a congregation of keenly observed laments gently vivisecting the small, Northern Alberta community at its core.”
      —Eden Robinson, author of Son of a Trickster
      “The literary child of Rachel Cusk’s Outline trilogy and James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room, this novel builds on both, and is yet still something so new. It has the guts to centre Indigenous queer life as worthy of serious intellectual and artistic inquiry—which, of course, it always has been. We will be reading and re-reading and learning from A Minor Chorus for decades to come.”
      —Alicia Elliott, author of A Mind Spread Out on the Ground
      “An absolutely dazzling confluence of big ideas and raw emotions, told in Billy-Ray Belcourt’s singular poetic voice. A Minor Chorus is about loving, questioning, and fighting for your life, and it’s as compelling a debut novel as I’ve read in years.”
      —Jami Attenberg, author of I Came All This Way to Meet You
      “A truly exceptional novel about how the disregarded sometimes live the most remarkable lives, and how storytelling will redeem us somehow, make us less lonely. A Minor Chorus is like a song that’s over too soon; I want to play it on repeat, to memorize the words so that I can sing them to myself.”
      —Katherena Vermette, author of The Strangers

      “An achingly gorgeous debut novel of Indigenous survival…This is a breathtaking and hypnotic achievement.”
      Publishers Weekly (starred review)

      “Registers less as minor chorus than symphony…Belcourt’s boldest, freest, and most linguistically assured work yet.”
      Library Journal (starred review)

      “Poet Billy-Ray Belcourt’s first novel is, unsurprisingly, a genre-defying masterpiece …. This book is unlike anything else I’ve ever read: it’s academic and anti-academic, full of poetry, longing, theory, and philosophy.”
      Book Riot

      “Belcourt crafts sentences like only a poet can, each one precise and shimmering. He writes with ferocious intensity and beauty about Grindr hookups, queer Indigenous friendship, police violence, the open wounds of Canada’s residential schools, loneliness, and longing.”
      “Belcourt is a brilliant writer and this book is further proof.”

      “I have long been convinced that Colin McAdam is a literary genius. What’s extraordinary is that each of the books he writes is a totally distinct type of genius. Every time. He’s in a league of his own.” —Max Porter, author of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers

      A deeply imaginative and thrilling novel about grief, single parenting, and the terrifying power of a child’s imagination, dancing on an edge between magical realism and horror, perfect for fans of Stranger Things

      In a tall and narrow house, on a stained and busy street, live twelve-year-old Oliver and his father, a story-loving writer. Haunted by the ghost of his alcoholic mother, Oliver finds comfort in his father’s impromptu tales: the Black Dove, an elusive flower that gives strength; the girl who consumes it as she battles attackers and yearns for happier realms. Stories where lonely souls keep searching despite their losses and grief.

      Running from a bully one night, Oliver finds refuge in a junk shop owned by an enigmatic man. Soon, instead of hiding in the janitor’s closet after school, Oliver spends afternoons in the shop, a cavernous place full of storied oddities and grubby wonders where creatures rise up from the basement. A snake in the shape of a boy. A hunter named Night, part panther, part hound, who proves to Oliver that the world holds invisible wonder.

      Wanting to forget his mother, afraid of his own genes, constantly harassed by bullies, Oliver decides to follow the shop-owner down the path of genetic editing. As he begins his transformation he meets the girl from across the street, and their friendship grows in a neighbourhood where magic is real, where murderers gather, and where the darker consequences of fantasies play out.

      A twisting story of grief and revenge, Black Dove is a thrilling read with its own kind of magic. In rich but tightly reined prose, McAdam celebrates the value and shortfalls of storytelling, finding a light in all the darkness to conjure a tender portrait of childhood’s end.
      COLIN McADAM’s last novel, A Beautiful Truth, won the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. It was also a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award and named a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year. His first novel, Some Great Thing, won the Amazon/Books in Canada First Novel Award and was nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Rogers Writers’ Trust Award, the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize in the U.K. His second novel, Fall, was shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and awarded the Paragraphe Hugh MacLennon Prize. He lives in Chelsea, Quebec.

      CBC’s “65 works of Canadian fiction to watch for in fall 2022”
      Zoomer’s “Best Books to Read in September 2022”

      Praise for Black Dove:

      “Colin McAdam conjures, in intoxicating prose, a grief-haunted boy offered a kind of Mephistophelean deal by a contemporary Dr. Moreau. Black Dove is tenderly nightmarish and toughly tender—a divine tale of yearning and revenge served up red-hot and with a side of broken hearts.”
      —Zsuzsi Gartner, Scotiabank Giller Prize–shortlisted author of The Beguiling
      “If, like me, you read to have your mind blown and your heart stretched, then Colin McAdam’s darkly magnificent Black Dove is for you. McAdam never writes a false sentence and is unflinching in his depiction of human cruelty, violence but also the most delicate and ennobling love. Black Dove is an extraordinary feat of imagination and of art.”
      —David Bezmozgis, Scotiabank Giller Prize–shortlisted author of Immigrant City

      Black Dove is an eerie, unsettling, fabulous book. McAdam leads the reader through quotidian and mythical realms with absolute assurance. Stark and beautiful, horrifying and lyrical, its pages thrum with flight, transformation, grief, revenge, transcendence, the remorseless power of stories and the very nature of creation. Ever since reading, Black Dove has drifted in and out of my dreams.”
      —Helen Macdonald, author of the New York Times bestselling H Is For Hawk

      Praise for Colin McAdam:

      “I have long been convinced that Colin McAdam is a literary genius. What’s extraordinary is that each of the books he writes is a totally distinct type of genius. Every time. He’s in a league of his own.”
      —Max Porter, Author of Grief is the Thing With Feathers

      “Colin McAdam’s voice is original and fiercely intelligent. It somehow possesses this combination of hard-won world weariness and exuberant, unshakeable faith in a better world.  He exposes all of our treacherous and base instincts but with the unspoken caveat that, in spite of our horrible human ways, we must always, relentlessly, struggle to love each other. Aside from McAdam’s great talents as a storyteller, it’s this feeling I get from his work, profoundly moving, that I strive to duplicate in my own writing.”

      Out of the explosive 1970s L.A. art scene comes a riveting novel about creativity, death, and reinvention that follows two artists—one dies mysteriously, and the other takes her place

      Paz, an ambitious young artist, is drawn to Romy, one of the only women to break into the male-dominated art scene of 1970s California. She is also drawn to Romy’s husband, Billy, an enigmatic art star. When Romy dies suddenly under mysterious circumstances, Billy is left unmoored, caring for their newborn.

      Leaving New York and grad school behind, Paz takes on the mantle of Romy’s life and steps into a ghostly love triangle. When Paz attempts to claim her creative life, strange things start to happen—photographs move, an unexplained postcard arrives, and an unsettling journal entry begins to blur the line between art and life.

      As Paz becomes increasingly obsessed with the woman she has replaced and the absent man she has married, a disturbing picture begins to emerge, driving her deep into the desert to uncover the truth.

      Astonishing and profound, Utopia affirms Heidi Sopinka as one of the most exhilarating voices in Canadian literature. A propulsive mix of desire, friendship, and betrayal, Utopia illuminates a crucible moment for art and feminism, which still reverberates today. This is both a visionary love story and a feminist manifesto that will leave you altered.

      Story Locale: 1970s California, New York
      HEIDI SOPINKA is the author of The Dictionary of Animal Languages, which was shortlisted for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize, and longlisted for the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize. A former environment columnist at The Globe and Mail, she is co-founder and co-designer at Horses Atelier. Her writing has won a National Magazine Award and has been anthologized in Art Essays. Her work has also appeared in The Paris Review, The Believer, Brick, and Lit Hub. She lives in Toronto.

      “These brilliant and bold artists explode off the page as they try to transcend the boundaries of the material world in their work. But the most dangerous waters they must navigate are those of the male-dominated world of the 1970s, which erases their art and identities. Sopinka explores the minefield that is loving men in an oppressively patriarchal world. And she captures the volatility and power of female friendships, and the uncharted maps of women’s untameable artistic drives.”
      —Heather O’Neill, author of When We Lost Our Heads

      “With tense and glittering writing, Heidi Sopinka’s Utopia blasts the dry desert sun onto the lives and afterlives of a circle of Californian artists, the women they are and the women they love. This is a thrilling book about artistic inheritance, jealousies and affinities.”

      Utopia is a marvel. Vividly beguiling on art, love, and what it means to be alive, every page thrums with magic.”
      —Sophie Mackintosh, Booker Prize–nominated author of The Water Cure and Blue Ticket

      Utopia is a bird’s eye view of the desires of the human heart…through characters who feel and live deeply at the boundaries of art and life. Sopinka’s luminescent prose tackles the danger and vitality of artistic and bodily desire under the politically charged structures of masculine power…with rawness, deep awareness, and razor-sharp critique…. This is an urgent book.”
      —Angélique Lalonde, Giller Prize–shortlisted author of Glorious Frazzled Beings

      Utopia seeps into your marrow, living there long after the final page. In Heidi Sopinka’s talented hands, this book about the 1970s California art scene honours the determination of creative women and the power of female friendship. Vibrant, immersive and utterly relevant, it is not to be missed. I devoured it.”
      —Karma Brown, bestselling co-author (Maggie Knox) of All I Want for Christmas

      “I was transfixed by Heidi Sopinka’s incandescent prose. It blazed through me and touched my heart in the deepest, most tender place. Utopia is about a powerful bond between mother and daughter; the collision of art, performance, and female friendships; and how grief shapes our ability to love and hope. Sexy, devastating, and wise—this novel will make you feel alive.”
      —Sanaë Lemoine, author of The Margot Affair

      Utopia is a study in contrasts: tart and poetic; sensitive and wild; bright and spooky like the LA light. It drove me onward; it let me linger. It made me angry; it inspired me. Above all, it clinches what we all suspected from The Dictionary of Animal Languages — Heidi Sopinka is a crazy good writer. I’d follow her anywhere.”
      Lauren Elkin

      “Flames of female rage run hot in this shimmering art-world ghost story…. Sensual, mysterious, and provocative, Utopia raises essential questions about women’s marginalization in the art world, loss of self and search for artistic grounding, the maternal impulse, and the demands of a life in art.”
      —Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint It Black

      Utopia is interested in life as performance, in the ways that we attempt to transcend our own bodies, and in what it means to be a woman artist in a world that is run by and for men. Set against the backdrop of the arid California desert, full of scalding cups of diner coffee and burning tarmac highways, this is a book as seething as its parts.”
      —Saba Sams, author of Send Nudes

      “Tense, sexy, and uncanny. Utopia shimmers with desert heat and burns with atmosphere. It’s Rebecca meets Zabriskie Point. Luminous.”
      —Francesca Reece, author of Voyeur

      “Utopia is a searing novel about art, ownership, and the entanglement of power and performance. Heidi Sopinka’s sentences have a bluish-orange intensity, a captivating energy that conjures a desert at dusk.”
      —Makenna Goodman, author of
      The Shame

      “Sopinka’s promising second novel–-part psychological thriller, part ghostly love story with bright notes of Rachel Kushner-–is set amidst the male-dominated hustle of the late-1970s New York art world.” 
      The Globe and Mail

      “There are many hints of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca … Part page-turning mystery, part ode to art and women’s resilience, this is a beautifully odd book that needs and deserves time to seep into the reader’s bones.”
      Sunday Independent

      Utopia cleverly investigates layers of social issues: feminism and its intersections with race and class; gender roles in life and in art; women’s relationships; the artist’s relationship to commerce and social justice … [Sopinka] excels in characterization and the evocation of the power of creation.”
      –Shelf Awareness

      “Sopinka’s mesmerizing latest … stages a story of obsession in the 1970s Los Angeles art world … This page-turner doubles as a love letter to the daring women on the fringes of art history.”
