  • September 17, 2014: "Watching a Literary Chicken Come Home to Roost in Novel Form," by Barbara Kay. Lovely piece on Daniel Goodwin's Sons and Fathers in the National Post: 

    "The narration is rich in pithy observations. Playing chess together in youth, Michael asks Eli, “Do you play to win, or do you play not to lose?” Eli reflects, “I realized I wasn’t good enough to play to win.” But as a writer, he can ensure that Allan, who does play to win, wins. Poets fear they are “charlatans who puffed themselves up with inflated claims of influence because they had none to speak of.”

    On leadership: People say they want compassion, “but what they really want is someone they can trust, who is strong and courageous — when the going gets tough, we want to know if our leader will talk nice to us or defend us.”

    This novel’s timing is fortuitous. The going is certainly getting tough, and the looming federal election is stacking up as a test of that observation." -- Barbara Kay.

  • September 15, 2014: Pub date of Denis Sampson's for A Migrant HeartAnd the launch is Thursday, September 18th, 2014, 6 - 8 p.m. School of Canadian Irish Studies, Concordia University Hall Building. You can get your copy here.

  • The first review of Daniel Goodwin's Sons and Fathers is out -- and it's a good one: "Goodwin has pulled off a sharp, clever début. His prose is strong and his characters memorable. Sons and Fathers is an enjoyable read." Mark Sampson, in Quill & Quire.

  • September 7, 2014: Two more great reviews of The Bells of Memory: A Palestinian Boyhood in Jerusalem, by Issa J. Boullata. "What Remains," by Ayal Victoria McKhail, Literary Review of Canada, Sept. 2014, p. 13: "This is a hauntingly beautiful account of the bells of memory that still toll for so many Palestinians wherever they may find themselves on this earth." 
    And in This Week in Palestine (#197, Sept. 2014) a review by Mahmoud Muna: "The book comes at an important time, when we see the city changing politically, economically, and socially in front of our own eyes."
