Buoyancy Control

BookThug


Buoyancy Control, the latest collection of poems from Vancouverite Adrienne Gruber, explores themes of sexuality, sexual identity, and queerness, while confronting the feelings of loss and longing found in relationships, and the chance glimpse into a new life, while still recovering from a painfully failed connection.

Metaphors of oceans, lakes, and other bodies of water, as well as the creatures that inhabit those spaces, swim and swirl their way through Gruber's languid poems, which are divided into two evocative sections. Though distinguished by their own prologue poems, both sections reveal details of the narrator's examination of life, but from two different perspectives: Section 1, Terra Firma, is an exploration of place, of what we consider solid and secure, and how solidity can betray us. In contrast, Section 2, A mari usque ad maria, brings the reader into themes of water and the fluidity of identity, particularly sexual identity and queerness.

This is an honest, at times humorous, and revealing look inside the mind and body of a woman manoeuvring through experiences of longing, loss, and the fluidity of sexual identity, only to come out on the other side a more forgiving being from the journey.

Fans of Karen Solie's powerfully feminist and unapologetic poetic voice, as well as the playful sarcasm and grit of Alison Calder's Wolf Tree, will glory in Gruber's fascinating culmination of land and sea, mind and body, in Buoyancy Control.

Praise for Buoyancy Control:

"Akin to the Indonesian mimic octopus, the poems in Buoyancy Control 'ascend from the ocean floor,' and proceed to evolve with an uncommon beauty. Both starkly sexual and aposematic, Adrienne Gruber's second book is remarkably controlled, framing the human condition in a world that's constantly shifting. Buoyancy Control is a fearless collection from one of Canada's best emerging poets." —Jim Johnstone, author of Dog Ear

"Densely, disturbingly erotic, Adrienne Gruber's Buoyancy Control is not a book for the faint of heart. Gruber's erotic reach encompasses the world entire, from undersea creatures to the human body of the beloved. No Hallmark sweetness in this collection—here is a fierce, wet, pulsing hunger, though there is an acute sensitivity in these observations, whether of childbirth, cold-water swimming, or other moments of convulsion and transformation so powerful that they transcend intellect. Here are poems that burst like fireworks, 'all thought blasted into the night sky.'" —Rachel Rose, Poet Laureate of Vancouver, author of Marry and Burn

"The lust and loneliness that muscle us between open water and inky depth vie for power in Buoyancy Control. Gruber's poems consume aqua life, roadkill, citrus, hotel beds, and dock-edge gargoyles as fuel for 'spit-shined' words that surface as moans and as 'sharp, atomized shrieks.' Plaintive, ecstatic, carnal, these pieces often wonder whether we’re 'complete on our own,' while veering between the urgency of self-pleasure, the defensiveness of self-containment, and the wound of self-reflexivity. Plumbing the digestive debris that skates the sea floor, Gruber's poems muck about with our equilibrium. We rise and sink lured by shadowscapes, pleasurelands and the hunt for a healthy gravity." —Brecken Hancock, author of Broom Broom, winner of the 2015 Trillium Book Award for Poetry

Talk less. Teach more!

Pearls of Learning Press


We talk and talk and talk ... and very often we are frustrated by the feeling that our students simply aren't listening or aren't taking our verbal instructions seriously.

It has been proven that over 82% of a teacher's communication with his or her students in the classroom is NONVERBAL. Why should we waste our breath on the classroom process rather than use it for our content? Especially when nonverbal management techniques are so much more effective?

This book presents, in addition to a bit of theory, a huge number of practical tips and tools that can be implemented immediately in the classroom and that allow teachers to do what they actually became teachers to do - to teach!

Bridge Retakes

BookThug


Bridge Retakes, the debut novel by Angela Lopes, is a whirlwind millennial tale of love and family and the distances that people will (or won't) go to secure what they want.

A Bahian man and a Brazilian-Canadian woman meet on an online dating site. They come from very different worlds—geographically, economically, religiously—and yet, their connection is undeniable. When these long-distance lovers run up against their own belief systems and those of their families and communities, it's their desire to build a life anew that keeps them moving forward. But all the while, issues of money, class, gender, and corruption threaten to tear them apart.

---

Praise for Bridge Retakes:

"This is the story of Phila + Ze, of Canada + Brazil. And like all great love stories it charts the emotions around desire, all its sweats and confusions. And it does this beautifully. What Phila &+43; Ze = is the plot of this book. And as such, what Bridge Retakes adds to these stories and what makes it distinctive is how these sweats and confusions are shaped by more complicated forces, such as national borders and economic inequalities."—Juliana Spahr

Les Littératies

Dionne, Anne-MarieBerger, Marie Josée (Hrsg.) | Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa | Collection Questions en éducation


Signées par des spécialistes provenant de différentes provinces canadiennes, les huit études réunies dans ce volume nous font découvrir que l'acquisition de la littératie est influencée tant par le développement linguistique que l'environnement familial ou la société dans laquelle l'enfant évolue. La littératie -- néologisme qui s'intègre graduellement dans le langage de l'éducation -- vise à rendre compte du caractère englobant de la langue et de la culture. En effet, la littératie dépasse le simple fait de savoir lire et écrire et renvoie aux capacités de l'individu à maîtriser l'écrit pour penser, communiquer, acquérir des connaissances, résoudre des problèmes, réfléchir sur son existence, partager sa culture et se divertir. L'individu lettré ne peut donc se définir sans l'écrit qui est un atout indispensable pour lire, se lire et lire le monde qui nous entoure. Chaque étude contribue de façon originale à faire comprendre les enjeux essentiels qui influencent la littératie.

A Very Capable Life

Athabasca University Press | Our Lives: Diary, Memoir, and Letters


Written in his mother’s unique voice, John Leigh Walters pushes the boundaries of memoir in A Very Capable Life, the extraordinary journey of a seemingly ordinary woman.Zarah Petri was a child when her family left Hungary to establish a new life in Canada in the 1920s. With courage and innovation, Zarah and her family survived the Depression?even if it meant breaking the law to do so. In celebrating Zarah Petri, A Very Capable Life pays homage to all “ordinary” women of the early twentieth century who challenged society’s conventions for the sake of survival.

---

“Walters offers the story of his mother’s journey from Hungary to Canada as a feminine picaresque with the indomitable Zarah in the dual roles of heroine and storyteller. In recreating his mother as a resourceful and often hilarious character, Walters’ sustained act of literary ventriloquism captures the ingenuity and passion of the diasporic narrative in Canadian cultural history.”

---

John Leigh Walters spent a lifetime writing, producing, and hosting television programs in both the United States and Canada. Notably, with Metropolitan Opera star Vivienne Della Chiesa, he co-hosted a daily television talk show on WLW-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio.
