And the winner is…
Ian Williams wins the 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize!



Ian Williams at 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize event

“Ian Williams’s Reproduction is many things at once. It’s an engrossing story of disparate people brought together and also a masterful unfolding of unexpected connections and collisions between and across lives otherwise separated by race, class, gender and geography. It’s a pointed and often playful plotting out of individual and shared stories in the close spaces of hospital rooms, garages, mansions and apartments, and a symphonic performance of resonant and dissonant voices, those of persons wanting to impress persuade, deny, or beguile others, and always trying again.”
 — JURY CITATION, Scotiabank Giller Prize



A Canadian classic. Fullly restored.
Halfbreed by Maria Campbell. In stores November 5th.



Halfbreed - revised Canadian editionauthor Maria Campbell

“You can almost feel this book vibrating in your hands, it is so compelling. You read it with a kind of agonized heart-in-the-mouth sensation, halfway between laughter and tears…. Truth is stronger than fiction.”
 — VICTORIA TIMES-COLONIST



In stores now: Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun by Paul Seesequasis. “Honouring the resilience, resourcefulness and determination of generations.”



Blanket Toss Canadian editionauthor Paul Seesequasis

“A revelatory work of astonishing grace, Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun encapsulates an invisible generation brought to glorious life. So many times the subject could have been my auntie, cousin or grandmother. When people ask why I live on the rez, I’ll point them to this book, this stunning reclamation of narrative, which so movingly shows the love of place, community and self.” — EDEN ROBINSON, author of Monkey Beach and Son of a Trickster



Reproduction by Ian Williams is now out in trade paperback—pick up a copy of the novel that has won the 2019 Scotiabank Giller Prize



Reproduction Canadian trade paperback editionauthor Ian Williams

“[Reproduction] is driven as much by its relationships as its characters, and is intensified and enriched by an inventive style that borrows from Williams’s giant poet’s brain.” — THE GLOBE AND MAIL


• WINNTER OF THE 2019 GILLER PRIZE
• SHORTLISTED FOR THE TORONTO BOOK AWARD
• SHORTLISTED FOR THE AMAZON FIRST NOVEL AWARD


Look out for Gregory Scofield's Thunder Through My Veins—now available in your local bookstore and online



Thunder Through My Veinsauthor Gregory Scofield

“Gregory Scofield is the literary uncle to all of Indigenous Lit…. The return of Thunder Through My Veins marks an important shift in thinking about the cyclical nature of how our stories weave through time.”
 — JOSHUA WHITEHEAD, author of Jonny Appleseed



When a young woman shines, the world can catch fire— pick up a copy of Lori Lansens' This Little Light



This Little LightAuthor Lori Lansens

“Lansens throws her readers right into the action and keeps them there, as thirsty, hungry, and frightened as two young girls on the run. A crazy-good coming-of-age thriller that will make you sweat, starting at page one.”
 — CHRISTINA DALCHER, author of the bestseller VOX

“Lori Lansens’ This Little Light is kind of a millennial’s take on The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s complex and fun, and a super interesting look into what it is to be a teenage girl in these times…. I’m working on turning this into a series with Universal.”
KATHLEEN ROBERTSON, actor, Northern Rescue



Fall in love with the precocious Flavia de Luce all over again! Alan Bradley's The Golden Tresses of the Dead now available in paperback



Flavia de Luce seriesauthor Eden Robinson

 —BOOKLIST, starred review



The battle of nature vs. nuture continues in Eden Robinson's Trickster Drift—paperback edition now available



Trickster Driftauthor Eden Robinson

“Robinson handles the new instalment of Jared’s story with ease and grace, her trademark good humour and often-disturbing imagination in equal display…. The third novel can’t come soon enough.” — THE TORONTO STAR



IN MEMORIAM:
Wayson Choy
April 20, 1939 – April 28, 2019

The New York Times: Wayson Choy, 80, Whose Books Are Windows on Chinese-Canadian Life, Dies

The Globe & Mail: Canadian author Wayson Choy inspired others with tales of childhood in Chinatown

CBC.ca: Wayson Choy, author of The Jade Peony, dead at 80

The Georgia Straight: Trailblazing Vancouver-born author Wayson Choy dies


Born and raised in Vancouver, Wayson Choy was Professor Emeritus at Humber College in Toronto. In 1995 his first novel, The Jade Peony, spent six months on The Globe and Mail’s national bestseller list, won the Trillium Book Award (shared with Margaret Atwood) for the best book by an Ontario author, and won the City of Vancouver Book Award. It was also an American Library Association Notable Book of the Year. It has never been out of print, and over 100,000 copies have been sold. The Literary Review of Canada declared The Jade Peony one of the one hundred most important books in Canadian history.

In 1999 Choy’s first memoir, Paper Shadows, was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award, the Charles Taylor Prize, and the Drainie-Taylor Biography Prize, and was the winner of the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction. All That Matters, a companion novel to The Jade Peony, won the Trillium Book Award in 2004 and was shortlisted for the Giller Prize. In 2006 Choy was inducted into the Order of Canada, and in 2009 he released to wide acclaim Not Yet: A Memoir of Living and Almost Dying.

“Choy ranges over familiar territory with a fresh eye, disclosing universal themes in the particularities of the Asian-American life of half a century ago.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES



What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. Yasuko Thanh’s memoir, Mistakes to Run With, is in stores now.



Mistakes to Run WithAuthor Yasuko Thanh

“Mistakes to Run With is refreshingly brave, bold, and open. Rather than hiding behind a tidy story arc, Yasuko Thanh places value on all life experiences, good, bad, beautiful, scary, and sad.”
 —CLAIRE CAMERON, author of The Last Neanderthal

“Yasuko Thanh takes us on an unflinching and honest reflection on a life threaded with poverty, violence, rape, addiction and mental illness. I was profoundly moved….”
—CARRIANNE LEUNG, author of That Time I Loved You



From Scarborough with love. Carrianne Leung’s That Time I Loved You makes its U.S. debut.



That Time I Loved YouAuthor Carrianne Leung

“Written in the tradition of Alice Munro and Jhumpa Lahiri, Leung’s debut story collection marks the career of a writer to watch.”
 —starred KIRKUS review

“That Time I Loved You is heady, necessary writing from one of the most talented and socially engaged authors of our time.”
—DAVID CHARIANDY, author of Soucouyant and Brother



New Year = new books. Watch for these three new releases in January 2019.



Starlight Tour cover


PRAISE FOR REBER’S STARLIGHT TOUR
“Starlight Tour is a vital chronicle of a tragedy that opened my eyes and yet still remains as painfully relevant as ever. A devastating portrait of the relationship between Indigenous peoples and a justice system that has offered us little real justice, it is as important for Canadians to read now as it was when first published and exposes just how long past due systemic reform is.”
JESSE WENTE, CBC Radio

The Golden Tresses of the Dead - Canadian & US coverAlan Bradley |Photo Credit: Shirley Bradley

PRAISE FOR THE GOLDEN TRESSES OF THE DEAD
“Bradley, who has few peers at combining fair-play clueing with humor and has fun mocking genre conventions, shows no sign of running out of ideas.”
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review

Reproduction Canadian coverIan Williams | Photo: Paul Joseph


PRAISE FOR WILLIAMS’ REPRODUCTION

“The startling brilliance of Ian Williams…vividly illuminates the intermingled comedy and trauma of family.”
DAVID CHARIANDY, author of Brother


"Here is magic." Jared's story continues in Eden Robinson's Trickster Drift. Now available in stores.



Trickster Driftauthor Eden Robinson

“[Robinson]…delivers a book which is at least as good as Son of a Trickster, and likely better.”— The Toronto Star
