THE ROAD TO JEWEL BEACH A Novel - Christopher Adamson

A spare, short novel. Emotionally terse, sharply observed. This is post-Vietnam on the west coast where the travelling is still easy and being on the road is still good, but now it’s not a matter of listening to bop on the radio and smoking joyful joints la Kerouac. It’s moving drugs by Greyhound bus across the border for the mob. It’s staving off panic attacks at the first sign of intimacy. It’s sex without emotion, and hallucinatory hospitals, broken-down vets, and the murder of your own mother as a merciful release into the little of untouched nature that is left.
"It seems unbelieavable that he has never published fiction before." – Joyce Carol Oates

OCEANS Poems - Bruce Meyer

Oceans–Winner of the 2004 Word Fest Prize in the United States.
As Ray Robertson has said, Meyer’s poems possess a "technical mastery that never belies their sure, searching nature," a constant searching in "the heart’s core" for relief from the crush of living. Firmly rooted in his city, Toronto, and in his family, Meyer is nonetheless a footloose spirit who, like "a sunburnt castaway"–ends up exposed, alone, vulnerable, and listening to the silence for voices–some of which are ventriloquists, some are the voices of love, and some are voices intimating God. This is his sixth collection of poems.
"Meyer can take us to his (and our) darkest moment without abandoning us there." – The Seattle Times

THE JUNK MAN’S DAUGHTER Poems - Meaghan Strimas

A striking debut! A young poet in her twenties whose poetic line has the honed authority and confidence of a seasoned artist. Her diction, her images, are her own–whether she is listening to her dying grandfather who "sounds like snorkelling/his mouth full of tube" or whether she is watching as minnows hurl from her hands, "gills gaping like two/flushed smiles." As she says, "each string of words is more/than a row of stacked black lines." No, the way she sees is always as startling as "half a popsicle melted in the sun/Its stick, a thin man’s coffin . . ."

WEEKLY DIARY AND POEMS IN PROSE & ADAM AND EVE Poems - Jaime Sabines
Translated and with an Introduction by Colin Carberry

Jaime Sabines was the most important and most influential of Mexico’s modern poets. This Diary was his first published book, translated now by the young Canadian poet, Colin Carberry. As Carberry tells us, one day, on first reading Sabines, he "felt he had let down a shaft into real life" when he was reading the lines:

Somebody spoke in my ear every day of my life,
slowly, murmuring, lingering.
It said: live, live, live!
It was death.

He was hooked, determined (destined?) to translate Sabines, which he has done–capturing all the poet’s complex sensibility–his alert eye, his sensuousness, his mordant humour.
