A Longview Christmas

Books We Love Ltd. | A Christmas Collection


Every Christmas Eve, Luke and Mary Cassidy’s friends and family gather to celebrate the holiday. From the kitchen wafts the scent of sugar cookies, fruit cake, and hot cider, not to mention all the other goodies. Gathered around the piano singing carols is a prelude to the Christmas Eve church service. This year Mary is worried about her beloved Luke’s health and she’s keeping an eye on the newly wedded Rob and Kayla. The poor girl is having a hard time keeping her cowboy hog-tied. Then there’s Cale and Michelle. She loves Michelle like the daughter she never had, and Mary is afraid the silly girl will let her pride get in the way of her happiness with the young vet who has bought into the practice. A match maker’s work is never done it seems. What better season than Christmas to give true love a tiny push?

Las crónicas reunidas en este libro, publicadas en El Mundo (de Buenos Aires), se tornaron tan populares que el periódico duplicaba sus ventas cuando aparecían. Los lectores decían. “Por su brevedad, son ideales para ser leídas durante el viaje al trabajo”. En estos geniales ensayos, Arlt examina irónicamente los desvíos locos de los vínculos entre el género masculino y el femenino. Nunca más cierto que “los hombres son de Marte y las mujeres de Venus”.

Ryela - Eine Liebe in der Neuen Welt

Cupido Books


Maryland, USA, Herbst 1749: Ryela hat England für immer den Rücken gekehrt, wenn auch nicht ganz freiwillig: Als Deportierte erblickt sie die Neue Welt, nach wochenlanger entbehrungsreicher Seereise, abgemagert, verdreckt, verstummt, unansehnlich – und damit genau die Richtige für Heathcliff Callahan, der dringend eine Magd für die Hausarbeit auf seiner einsam gelegenen Farm braucht. Zu zweit allein in der Weite des Landes könnten sich die beiden näherkommen, wenn Heath nicht geschworen hätte, seine verunglückte Frau niemals zu vergessen und auf ewig zu lieben …

Doch Leidenschaft, Mut und Entschlossenheit haben Ryela (gesprochen: Ra-ila) trotz der harten Strafe nicht verlassen. Ein weiterer bezaubernder Roman von Rika Federkleyd!

Beste Freundinnen

Eichborn


Woran erkennen Männer ihre Traumfrau? Zählt Sex mit der Ex wirklich als Fremdgehen, oder gilt der nicht, weil man mit ihr ja schon mal was hatte? Und wie gerät eine Frau eigentlich in die Kumpelecke?

Max und Jakob, zwei Freunde Anfang dreißig, unterhalten sich über Frauen, Liebe, Sex und die großen Fragen des Lebens und sprechen aus, was Männer wirklich denken. Dabei sind sie lustig, nachdenklich, provokant und ehrlich - manchmal so sehr, dass es weh tut. Wer sich auf die beiden einlässt, lernt Männer zu verstehen.

Where the Nights Are Twice as Long

Eso, DavidLynes, Jeanette (Hrsg.) | Goose Lane Editions


Under the covers of Where the Nights Are Twice as Long: Love Letters of Canadian Poets, David Eso and Jeanette Lynes collect letters and epistolary poems from more than 120 Canadian poets, including Pauline Johnson, Malcolm Lowry, Louis Riel, Alden Nowlan, Anne Szumigalski , Leonard Cohen, John Barton, and Di Brandt, and many others, encompassing the breadth of this country's English literary history.

Presented in order not of the chronology of composition, but according to the poets' ages at the time of writing, the poems in the book comprise a single lifeline. The reader follows an amalgam of the Poet from the passionate intensity of youth, through the regrets and satisfactions of adulthood and middle age, and into the reflective wisdom of old age.

All the writings are about love, but love in a dizzying array of colours, shapes, and sizes. Deep, enduring love, unrequited love, passionate love, violent love. Here are odes and lyric ecstasies, tirades and tantrums, pastoral comforts and abject horrors — all delivered with the vibrancy, wit, and erudition of our finest poets. Where the Nights Are Twice as Long is more than an anthology: it is an unforgettable journey into the long night of love.

---

"The love letter is not dead, just different, a new book proves."

---

"Part of the appeal of Eso's and Lynes's anthology is that the lover's discourse is revealed as tricky and duplicitous. At once mythic and collective, it is also intimate and particular, directed not to an imaginary world of readers and writers but to a certain somebody, an often unnamed but nevertheless profoundly known beloved."

---

"[T]he new book proves that while some things change — using email to send letters rather than paper — the joy, and sometimes pain, of love is constant."

---

" As the letters, poems, emails and texts in this collection are grouped according to the age of the poets at the time of writing, poets and their eras collide. And what grand collisions they are. The book is rich in loss and endings, longevity and, no matter what the age, erotic and sometimes erratic explorations in the realm of love."

---

"At times beautiful, at times rueful, Where the Nights Are Twice as Long is a collection of letters written by Canadian poets to those they loved. The result is a diverse portrait of the life cycle of a romantic relationship, from the first infatuation to I-still-can't-forget-you melancholy."

---

"Here is a wild map, from incandescent sparks to considered glow, of love's landscape in Canadian poetry. David Eso and Jeanette Lynes have put together something outside the ordinary."

---

"an amayzing galaktik compilaysyun all brillyant poets all brillyant passyuns evree nuans evree change n trope uv all th loves ium sew happee a b in ths byond brillyant book."

---

"With obvious diligence, the editors have solicited, collected, or dug up love letters by 129 English Canadian poets."

---

"The editors of Where the Nights Are Twice as Long have organized the letters (and occasional love poems) according to the writer's age at the time of composition. The results reveal much about the evolution (and disintegration) of our passions as they are worn down or deepened over time.#&34;

---

"This is a Canada we haven't seen before. Romantic, intimate, a valentine shaped like a maple leaf designed for lovers of Canadian literature and its oh-so-human practitioners."

---

David Eso's work as scholar, poet, anthologist, and impresario unites Canadian literary heritage with its impending renaissance. Eso has appeared in Filling Station, CV2, Strangers in Paris, Canadian Literature, Arc, Freefall, Vallum, Under the Mulberry Tree, the Globe and Mail, and on CBC. His chapbooks include Entries from My Affair with an Escape Artist (2003), A Wide Path to the Narrowing Future (2010) and Asiarific (2014). As a familiar face at literary readings across Canada, Charles Noble calls Eso "a force of nature and force of culture." Eso is currently a graduate student at the University of Calgary where he is studying the letters of Robert Kroetsch.

Jeanette Lynes is the author of six collections of poetry. Her most recent book of poems, Archive of the Undressed (2012), was shortlisted for two Saskatchewan Book Awards. Her previous poetry received the Bliss Carman Award and The New Quarterly's Nick Blatchford Occasional Verse Award. Lynes' seventh book of poems, Bedlam Cowslip: The John Clare Poems is forthcoming from Wolsak and Wynn in 2015 under its Buckrider Books Imprint. Her first novel, The Factory Voice (2009) was long-listed for The Scotia Bank Giller Prize and a ReLit Award. She is the inaugural Coordinator of the MFA in Writing at the University of Saskatchewan.

Alice In Plunderland

BookThug


It's been 150 years since Alice first entered Wonderland in Lewis Carroll's beloved classic book. My, how times have changed! Now, from the multi-award-winning poet and scholar Steve McCaffery comes Alice in Plunderland, a reimagining of Lewis Carroll's Alice books that will forever change the way readers negotiate Wonderland and its menagerie of characters.

Written as part of a larger project called Chiasmus, in which McCaffery will "queer the classics," Plunderland's Alice and all of the other characters become infused with qualities related to the notion of "plunder"—theft, drug addiction, looting and civil disorder. Instilled with humour, intelligence, and more than a little bit of absurdity, this retelling of Alice’s adventures takes place somewhere other than expected. In the rough-and-tumble world of Plunderland, where theft, drugs, and gangs hold sway, and nary a tea party is to be found, the Cheshire Cat is a junky from the UK; the King and Queen hold court over the land of Cocaine; even Alice's adventures are transformed in her quest for a fix.

As the result of McCaffery's theory of "palindromic time" by which the past is contemporized and the present historicized, fans of McCaffery’s work will find plenty of poetic marvel to sink their teeth into. In Alice in Plunderland, his first foray into prose-parody, McCaffery's innovative poetics transform a classic story, and in doing so, break open an exciting new initiative for fans of experimental poetics and linguistics in the years to come.

Praise for Steve McCafferey's Panopticon

Panopticon is ultimately a profoundly optimistic work, a leap of faith that chooses to revel in the opacity of language.— Sam Rowe

---

Author of around 40 books of poetry and criticism published variously in Canada, England, and the United States, McCaffery was a founding member of the sound poetry ensemble Four Horsemen (with bpNichol of TRG—The Toronto Research Group), and a founding theorist of Language Poetry. He has published three previous titles with BookThug: a revised second edition of Panopticon, The Basho Variations, and Every Way Oakly (homolinguistic translations of Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons), as well as editing the first Canadian edition of Stein's book of that name. He is the two-time recipient of the Gertrude Stein Award for Innovative Writing, and was shortlisted twice for the Governor General's Award in Poetry. He lives and teaches in Buffalo, NY, where he is the David Gray Professor of Poetry and Letters at the State University at Buffalo.
