Austin Clarke: They Never Told Me and Other Stories
Winner of the Giller, Commonwealth, Trillium and Writers’ Trust prizes, Clarke has crafted great stories of an alchemical wit and hard-earned wisdom in this collection, his best and most provocative to date.

Leon Rooke: Wide World in Celebration and Sorrow
Subversive, edgy, and wildly entertaining, Leon Rooke is a dynamic storyteller. In this superb collection are gathered his quintessential acts of kamikaze fiction, snapshots rich with imagination, as he peels back the skin of social convention and embraces the chaos of life.

Christine Miscione: Auxiliary Skins
A debut book that illumines all that’s perilous, beautiful and raw about being human – a collection chock-full of razor blades masquerading as lemon tarts and everything in between.

Vladimir Azarov and Barry Callaghan (translators): Strong Words ~ Poetry in a Russian and English Edition
“This small, powerful selection of 44 poems by Pushkin, Akhmatova and Voznesensky – three distinct poetic voices – creates a mysterious wholeness; one can almost imagine the book as a single poem, so alert are these translations to the elusive narrative of deeply felt human experience. This is what the best poetry is capable of: an entire life illumined in a line or two.”   -Anne Michaels, author of Fugitive Pieces

Vladimir Azarov: Night Out
A celebration of the dichotomies that hold the world together, and the spirit that resides at the core of great artifice.

Vladimir Azarov: Mongolian Études
To the ends of an empire: a remarkable story told in letters, poems and prose. In the grand old tradition of Steele and Addison and the eighteenth-century English periodicals, there was a familiar character, a Citizen of the World, who brought whimsical knowledge from foreign lands; Vladimir Azarov is like that traveller, bringing fresh insight with a shy smile.
