Meet our authors

Ariela Freedman

Ariela Freedman, whose first novel is Arabic for Beginners, "is an exceptionally good writer" (Quill & Quire), and hers is "a fine début" (Jade Colbert, The Globe and Mail) and "a superb novel" (Shelley Pomerance, Montréal Centre-ville). Shortlisted for the 2017 QWF Concordia Best First Book Award!

Xue Yiwei

"Tragedies can also be dark comedies. If you fail to understand this, you won’t get what is happening in China now. The comical moments are crucial in Dr. Bethune's Children." -- Xue Yiwei, winner of the 2017 Montreal Arts Council / Blue Metropolis Literary Diversity Award.

Martine Delvaux

In this urgent, gripping personal essay, feminist author Martine Delvaux links her own experience as a writer with that of the American photographer and installation artist Nan Goldin, who is best-known for her intimate portrayals of the sexual underground.

George Fetherling

The Montreal Gazette describes Vancouver novelist and poet George Fetherling as “a mercurial, liberal intelligence, the kind of which English Canada has too short a supply,” and Xtra calls him “a national literary treasure.”
