Odd Ducks
By Bryden MacDonald

Short-listed 2015 Governor General's Award (Drama)

Welcome to the small town of Tartan Cross, Nova Scotia, where skeletons rattle in closets and past histories are so intertwined that the lives of four forty-something, eccentric characters have become so complicated that something needs to change. In the comedy, Odd Ducks, award-winning playwright Bryden MacDonald positions his four characters at the brink of existential angst – and the action unfolds from there.

On the Material
By Stephen Collis

Winner 2011 BC Book Prize: Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize

Structured in three parts, On the Material is a meditation on language, geography, socio-economics and the body, moving from the glut of fossil-fuelled consumer excess to the materiality of a single book. The final section is a sequence of poems in memory of Stephen Collis’s departed sister, Gail Tulloch, becoming a way for the poet to read back into the elemental heart of absence and loss—the “material” of the books displacing, and in some way recovering, how language holds the materiality of the physical world.

Ordinary Time
By Gil McElroy

Gil McElroy’s new book of poems sets out to give shape to time from four different referents: the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line of the High Arctic where McElroy’s father worked, the Julian calendar of classical antiquity, the structure of the Anglican lectionary and its cycle of daily and weekly scriptures (called “propers”), and Stephen Hawking’s description of imaginary time.

Other LossesFront Cover
Other Losses
By James Bacque

Other Losses caused an international scandal when first published in 1989 by revealing that Allied Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower and Charles de Gaulle caused the death of some 1,000,000 German captives in American and French internment camps through disease, starvation and exposure from 1944 to 1949, as a direct result of the policies of the Western Allies, who, with the Soviets, ruled as the Military Occupation Government over partitioned Germany from May 1945 until 1949.

This updated third edition of Other Losses exists not to accuse, but to remind us that no country can claim an inherent innocence of or exemption from the cruelties of war.
