OUR FATHERS’ WAR A Novel - James Bacque

From this best-selling author an astonishing new novel that is a bitter, tender, funny, and vivid telling of peoplešs lives on both sides of World War Two, interlocking intense battle scenes with passionate and genuine love stories – a wonderful read, as if you had been there!

At a house party beside Georgian Bay, on the eve of war, Victoria Treloar of London is attracted to poet Grant Giovanelli from Toronto. The next day, at a castle in Germany, Clara Dunsmuir of New Brunswick marries her fiancé Peter von Metternich, thus barely escaping internment as an enemy alien. Throughout the war, Clara and her best friend Tatiana Miloslavsky secretly help Tati’s husband Klaus to save refugees, then carry out the bomb attack on Hitler in 1944. Grant Giovanelli fights U-boats in the North Atlantic, his brother Jack parachutes on a commando mission into occupied France. A wild ride through history and imagination that is underpinned by the reality of Hitler, Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt plotting their separate wars that nearly ruined the world.

NASTY, SHORT AND BRUTAL Stories - Daniel Nemiroff

Daniel Nemiroff writes about the peripheral, the fringe life, those chaotic emotions of jealousy, love, hate, revenge, the psychotic, all with a sureness that is rare in storytelling – it is so immediate that it is the experience rather than a re-creation of it.

THE VOW A Novel - Morley Callaghan
Introduction by Jane Urquhart

Originally titled Luke Baldwin’s Vow, this is a story in which a practical Uncle sees his old and lame dog as no longer useful, and he concludes the dog should be destroyed. Luke, a twelve year old boy who has come to live with his uncle and aunt after his father died of a heart attack, sees much to admire in his uncle, and he wants his uncle to like him and approve of him. But Luke is sometimes a dreamy and stubborn boy, and the two often do not see eye to eye, and in this case Luke fights to save the dog. In his struggle he comes to a better understanding, not only of Uncle Henry, but of the expedient world of adults. This is a simple straightforward story that every young person understands.

"A single vision encompasses these people in all their self-contradictions, betrayals, nobility, bewilderment . . . every pattern leads out into a larger atmosphere of mercy and wonder." – Margaret Avison
"The story poses in opposition disinterested love and practical use and teaches how 'love' must be flawed by 'use,' and how love must be preserved in a world set to destroy it." – Commonwealth Literature

A TIME FOR JUDAS A Novel - Morley Callaghan
Introduction by Nino Ricci

A dramatic new version of the story of Christ’s trial, crucifixion and resurrection – a story told by Philo of Crete, secretary to Pontius Pilot.

This is an especially important book in light of the newly revealed "Gnostic Gospels of Judas" – see both the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail from Friday April 7 for write ups on this topic, as this discovery brings to light how Morley Callaghan was 20 years ahead of his time in the writing of this story.
