THAT SUMMER IN PARIS - Morley Callaghan
EXILE CLASSICS Number One - With material for Book Clubs and Classrooms

A READER’S MUST!
It was the fabulous summer of 1929 when the literary capital of North America had moved to the Left Bank of Paris. Hemingway was reading proofs to A Farewell to Arms, and a few blocks away Fitzgerald was struggling over Tender Is the Night. And Morley Callaghan, his first book published to acclaim in New York, arrived in Paris to share the felicities of the literary life, not just with his two friends, but with James Joyce, Ford Madox Ford, and Robert McAlmon. Amidst these tangled relations, friendships were lost, too. A tragic and sad and unforgettable story told in Callaghan¹s lucid, compassionate prose.

NIGHTS IN THE UNDERGROUND - Marie-Claire Blais
Translated from the French by Ray Ellenwood / Drawings by Mary Meigs
EXILE CLASSICS Number Two - With material for Book Clubs and Classrooms

A NATIONAL BESTSELLER!
Night after night in a club called The Underground, Geneviève and her friends live out their loves and their tragedies apart from the day-to-day life of the city. Each glance, each embrace, and each ensuing encounter weaves a profound matrix of human isolation, with transcendence found in the healing power of love.
Through Geneviève – a woman struggling with an idealistic vision of love – a door is opened into the lives of the characters, lives through which Marie-Claire Blais came to the forefront of feminism in Canada as it was her first novel devoted to the optimism, passion, successes and failures of an emerging lesbian "empowerment of self."

DEAF TO THE CITY - Marie-Claire Blais
Translated from the French by Carol Dunlop
EXILE CLASSICS Number Three - With material for Book Clubs and Classrooms

GOVERNOR GENERAL’S AWARD WINNER!
City life, where innocence, death, sexuality, and despair fight for survival. The story with characters from every walk of life – teacher to gangster to housewife to stripper – revolves around the Hôtel des Voyageurs, a drinking place for men and women reaching desperately for dreams, for life. A book of passion and anguish characteristic of our times, written in a prose of controlled assurance. A Canadian urban classic.

THE GERMAN PRISONER - James Hanley
Introduction by Bruce Meyer
EXILE CLASSICS Number Four - With material for Book Clubs and Classrooms

A ROSE-GLASSES-SHATTERING TALE OF WWI TRENCH WARFARE!
In the weariness and exhaustion of trench warfare, men are driven to extremes of behaviour. Two soldiers – O'Garra the Irishman and Elston from Manchester – find themselves trapped in an unrelenting fog with their German prisoner, a beautiful youth from Munich. What happens next is a story of despair and madness.
The German Prisoner, brilliant in its stark depiction of trench warfare, was privately printed in a limited edition, with an introduction by the war poet, Richard Adlington, in 1930. Until now, this battle classic has remained little known.
Best-known for his numerous detective novels written during the 1930s and 1940s, James Hanley was born in Dublin, but at the age of 15 he jumped ship in Saint John, New Brunswick, and enlisted in the Canadian Army. He saw action as a Canadian fighting man until he was wounded in 1918.

UPROAR’S YOUR ONLY MUSIC / PICAS SERIES No. 49 - Brian Brett

This memoir is personal and intense, a vision that is half paradise, half abattoir. It is Brett telling of growing up in the shadow of his peg-legged, strongman potato-peddling father, as he reveals that he is a hermaphrodite – sometimes angelic in his insights and also physically powerful, yet always on the brink of dying. Through excruciating pain in his bones and drug-induced hallucinations, he has stayed alive into his middle years as a storyteller with a huge appetite for life and words – a man of brilliance and courage, who has confronted the essential questions and conundrums of existence.
"The most exciting Canadian book I’ve read all year is Brian Brett’s memoir . . . Uproar’s Your Only Music. Written with the charm and intensity of all Brian Brett’s finest work . . ." –Ronald Wright, Globe and Mail Books of the Year.
"Gulf Islands poet Brian Brett has delivered an extraordinary addition to his poetic catalogue..." –Bill Robertson, Saskatoon Star Phoenix
"Brian Brett has been farming, making ceramic sculptures, and writing poetry and novels for years out on Saltspring Island, British Columbia. Currently the Chair of the Writers’ Union of Canada he’s certainly no stranger to other writers. But his recent memoir, Uproar’s Your Only Music, astonished even his friends, who are used to being surprised by the breadth of Brett’s work." –David Homel & Marie-Claude Fortin, Fresh Voices, Destination Magazine
"Brett transforms us with his richness and passion." –Patrick Lane

PIG-SKINNING - Robert Marteau
Translated from the French by David Homel

This is a novel by one of the great poets writing in French. Pig skinning, the actual stripping of the hide of a hog, is the metaphor for a vision of reckless men and women in a landscape of dark moors. It may be medieval, it may be contemporary, but it is always alive with sensual violence and metaphysics as the desires of aristocrats and earthbound peasants clash.
