What’s in store from Talon this coming autumn? Find out in the online version of our Fall 2015 catalogue! (You can also order a print copy of our catalogue by emailing email@example.com.)
This fall, expect new selected and collected works by George Bowering and Fred Wah; new non-fiction from Carl Peters and Daniel Canty (as translated by Oana Avasilichioaei); new fiction from Jack Winter; new poetry from Judith Fitzgerald, Garry Thomas Morse, Rahat Kurd, and Dina Del Bucchia and Daniel Zomparelli; and new plays from Drew Hayden Taylor, Michel Marc Bouchard (as translated by Linda Gaboriau), Marcus Youssef, George F. Walker, and Chantal Bilodeau.
Oh, the places you’ll go! Visit Bowering’s Okanagan. Revisit Stein’s Tender Buttons with Peters. Follow the wind with Canty. Travel to ancient China with Winter. Go back to the land and into the deep of culture with Fitzgerald and Kurd. Be mesmerized by the textual stylings of Morse. Dress up for a hot date with Del Bucchia and Zomparelli. Get trapped with a blues band behind barricades with Taylor. Fall in love with Youssef’s modern-day, inter-cultural, inter-religious Romeo and Juliet. Audit the school of hard knocks with Walker. Celebrate the history of the stage with Bouchard. And save the Arctic with Bilodeau!
Clearly you’ll have to block off some reading time in the autumnal season. In the meantime, we wish everyone a wonderful summer!

By Carl Peters
On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
