Description : In the mid-twentieth century, Canadian literature transformed from a largely ignored trickle of books into an enormous cultural phenomenon that produced Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, Michael Ondaatje, Mordecai Richler, and so many others. In Arrival, acclaimed writer and critic Nick Mount answers the question: What caused the CanLit Boom? Written with wit and panache, Arrival tells the story of Canada’s literary awakening. Interwoven with Mount’s vivid tale are enlightening mini-biographies of the people who made it happen, from superstars Leonard Cohen and Marie-Claire Blais to lesser-known lights like the troubled and impassioned Harold Sonny Ladoo. The full range of Canada’s literary boom is here: the underground exploits of the blew ointment and Tish gangs; revolutionary critical forays by highbrow academics; the blunt-force trauma of our plain-spoken backwoods poetry; and the urgent political writing that erupted from the turmoil in Quebec. Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, Arrival is a dazzling, variegated, and inspired piece of writing that helps explain how we got from there to here.

Description : Although his literary reputation rests primarily on his novels, Malcolm Lowry (1909-57) considered himself to be a poet, and he composed an extensive poetic canon. No reliable edition of Lowry's poetry currently exists. Increasing critical interest in all aspects of Lowry's life and work prompted the preparation of this complete edition of his poetry, in which the poems are located, identified, dated, arranged, collated, annotated, and explicated by biographical, critical, and textual introductions.

Description : The Isolation Booth is the third volume in Hugh Hood's Collected Stories; it contains short fiction written between 1957 and 1966. While all of the stories have been previously published in various magazines, this is the first time they are available in book form. The title story was first published in The Tamarack Review in 1958; the paid to Hood for that story represents the first income he ever made from his writing. Since then, Hugh Hood has become `one of Canada's most prolific short-story writers and novelists.' (William French, The Globe & Mail) He has authored more than twenty books, including novels, short-story collections and essays. The Porcupine's Quill has previously published Flying a Red Kite and A Short Walk in the Rain as part of our continuing series of Hood's Collected Stories. The stories in this collection are varied in form and content, from `The Isolation Booth', which Hood describes in his introduction as `... typical media folklore, the tale of a human sacrifice', to `The Fable of the Ant and the Grasshopper' which is concerned with the moral: `Never oppress the shiftless and the idle; they may have powerful friends.' These stories reflect the variety of Hood's experiments with the form, as well as his continuing concern with the human condition, which prompted William Blackburn to comment, `Hood's thirty-year career demonstrates his profound and compassionate sensitivity to our human predicament.' (Canadian Book Review Annual). As Hood writes in the introduction to The Isolation Booth, `Surely the society that invents a space called ``the isolation booth'' isn't far removed from the subliminal motivations of the torturers in prisons and camps of one kind or another. I've always shuddered remembering the phrase, yet it was in common use among millions of weekly viewers of big-money TV quiz programmes like ``The $64,000 Question''.' These concerns are (unfortunately) as meaningful now as when `The Isolation Booth' was written in 1958.

Description : A Gentleman of Pleasure not only spans Glassco's life but delves into his background as a member of a once prominent and powerful Montreal family. In addition to Glassco's readily available work, Brian Busby draws on pseudonymous writings published as a McGill student as well as unpublished and previously unknown poems, letters, and journal entries to detail a vibrant life while pulling back the curtain on Glassco's sexuality and unconventional tastes. In a lively account of a man given to deception, who took delight in hoaxes, Busby manages to substantiate many of the often unreliable statements Glassco made about his life and work. A Gentleman of Pleasure is a remarkable biography that captures the knowable truth about a fascinatingly complex and secretive man.
