  • Social Acupunctureby Darren O'Donnell

    Coach House Books 2002; US$ 13.99

    Theatre doesn?t have much relevance anymore. Or so acclaimed playwright Darren O?Donnell tells us.

  • Expresswayby Sina Queyras

    Coach House Books 2005; US$ 13.99

    This poem resembles urban sprawl. This poem resembles the freedom to charge a fee. The fee occurs in the gaps. It is an event. It is not without precedent. It is a moment in which you pay money. It is a tribute to freedom of choice. Reality is a parking lot in Qatar. Reality is an airstrip in Malawi. Meanwhile the expressway encloses, the... more...

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2009; US$ 85.00

    The selections in Fierce Departures , drawn from Dionne Brand’s work since 1997, delineate with searing eloquence how history marks and dislocates peoples of the African diaspora, how nations, concretely and conceptually, fail to create safe haven, and how human desire persists nevertheless. Through a widening canvas, Brand unfolds the (im)possibilities... more...

  • An Absence of Saintsby Rosanna Licari

    University of Queensland Press 2011; US$ 12.99

    A circle of vermillion flares into petals of yellow and white. These colored tesserae, a contrast to the dull sea of roof tiles below.
