Now is the time to preorder Daniel Canty’s new book, The United States of Wind. It is at the press and will be available in just a week or two – which is about as long as it took for this author to take a journey with the wind, a journey that is crystallized in this unique travelogue. To pique your interest, you may enjoy reading the book’s prologue, the majority of which (pages 5 to 8 inclusive of the book) is reproduced on Meta-Talon today.Friday July 24, 2015 in Meta-Talon
In Canada: A New Tax Haven, Alain Deneault traces Canada’s relationship with Commonwealth Caribbean nations back through the last half of the twentieth century, arguing that the involvement of Canadian financiers in establishing and maintaining Caribbean tax havens has predisposed Canada to become a tax haven itself – a metamorphosis well under way.
Canada: A New Tax Haven is available from Talonbooks for $29.95. Read the bulk of the book’s introduction on Meta-Talon today.Thursday July 16, 2015 in Meta-Talon
This fall, follow the wind with Daniel Canty. Aboard the Blue Rider, a venerable midnight-blue Ford Ranger crested with a weathervane and a retractable windsock, Canty surrendered himself to the fluidity of air currents, driving in the direction of the wind for ten days in 2010. And soon, his accompanying musings may be found in a book.
To tease and tickle your fancy as you await with gooseflesh the arrival of The United States of Wind, we offer the windiest chapter of Canty’s previous book, Wigrum.Thursday July 9, 2015 in Meta-Talon
