Read: One of our favourite scenes from U Girl

A delight to read, U Girl is the meta-fictional, feminist story of Frances Nelson, a first-year university student who wants to write a novel. This nostalgic novel is set in Vancouver in the early 1970s, but its characters and conflicts ring just as true today.

One of the most memorable – and perhaps character-defining – scenes of the novel takes place in Chapter 6, when Frances attends a poetry reading with her friend Dagmar, who will be reading (for the first time). Read the scene on Meta-Talon today.

School Books: A List

It’s back-to-school time! For some, a happy haze of nostalgia sets in. For others, the supplies are bought and the outfits arranged in honour of that first week: you can be a new you. Maybe this year.

In honour of the back-to-school season, we’ve gathered a list of our favourite school-related Talonbooks. As though your fall reading list isn’t long enough already.

[The Days cover] Monday August 22, 2016 in Meta-Talon

Let the witticisms fly – it’s Dorothy Parker Day!

August 22 is Dorothy Parker Day! Say something witty and corrosive today, and expect no censure.

Let yourself be excited and delighted by the artfully spare stories in M.A.C. Farrant’s new collection, The Days. Averaging a couple of paragraphs each, they offer enough food for thought (and mood) to keep you going for months …

Today on Meta-Talon, we celebrate Farrant’s new holiday – Dorothy Parker Day – with a short story from The Days.

[Running on Fumes cover] Thursday August 11, 2016 in Meta-Talon

Read excerpts from Running on Fumes

In Running on Fumes, the debut novel by Christian Guay-Poliquin (translated into English by Jacob Homel), we follow an increasingly punch-drunk driver on a road trip across an apocalyptic version of Canada. This road novel moves at a gripping pace, and its enigmatic narrator and elements of magic realism will intrigue and provoke discussion. (Trust us; our editors had some lively discussions during the making of this book!) Today on Meta-Talon, read selections from Running on Fumes
