The Wrecking Ball, cartoons
ISBN: 978-1-927535-55-4; 3 Oct 2014
Introduction by Chantal Hébert.
The Wrecking Ball is a collection of Aislin’s recent favourite cartoons. All of the choice political material is here: Pauline Marois as Miley Cyrus, the Parti Québécois’s Charter of Quebec Values, student demonstrators wandering through Montreal’s deteriorating streets, corruption inquires and Montreal’s succession of mayors, the Harper Tories and the Canadian Senate debacle, the coronation of Justin Trudeau, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, the Habs and the Sochi Olympics. Whew!
Sons and Fathers, a novel
A novel about men.
"In Sons and Fathers, Daniel Goodwin takes us on a wild, page-turning ride through a harrowing collision of family, friendship, politics, and love.”– Terry Fallis
A Migrant Heart,
ISBN: 978-1-927535-47-9. Sept. 15, 2014.
Migration and Immigration, Ireland and Canada
Denis Sampson left Ireland as a student, leaving behind the farming countryside of his childhood, the city of Dublin where he was educated, and the history and culture of his native country. He arrived in the cosmopolitan city of Montreal and discovered he was not the only one in search of a new life, and then that search became his life.
A Second Chance, a novel
Adam is happily married when he has a stroke at the age of fifty, and his behaviour changes to that of a ten-year-old. What are his secrets? His wife would like to know. A novel about devotion and betrayal, A Second Chance is also about forgiveness. Felicia Mihali is the author of The Darling of Kandahar, which was nominated for Canada Reads 2013.
The Bells of Memory
ISBN: 978-1-927535-39-4. April 5, 2014.
Middle East History; Palestine.
The distinguished Arabic scholar, author, and translator Issa J. Boullata grew up in a Palestinian family in the Jerusalem of the 1930s and 1940s, when Palestine was under the British Mandate. This is a love letter to a Jerusalem that was changed immeasurably by Al-Nakba, the Palestinian Catastrophe of 1948 that dispossessed the Palestinians of their homeland and dislocated many as refugees when Israel was established.

Comments of the jury for the 2014 QWF Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction on The Bells of Memory: A Palestinian Boyhood in Jerusalem, by Issa J. Boullata: "A unique blend of the personal, historical and political. Restrained but lyrical prose, a fascinating look into a vanished way of life, a powerful because understated political pamphlet: Bells of Memory is a book that makes a difference. Arising out of this very individual memoir is a political protest against the injustice of his country being taken away from him--a protest that is all the more powerful because stated in restrained fashion."
