Cabot Wright Begins

Cabot Wright Begins
by James Purdy

In James Purdy’s third novel, first published in 1964, convicted rapist Cabot Wright is released from prison. Car salesman and aspiring writer Bernie Gladhart pursues the offender, the subject of his novel-to-be, as a series of bizarre events unfolds. The whole is a satirical, disquieting look at American culture of the time.

Boneshaker No. 12

Boneshaker No. 12

Attention cyclists: have you been reading London's Boneshaker mag? They cover the world of bikes from its oddest angles, less interested in gear and performance than in personalities and adventures. This time around: rickshaws, railbiking, roadway politics, and more.

Optic Nerve No. 13

Optic Nerve No. 13
by Adrian Tomine

Two years since the last Optic Nerve, No. 13 has arrived and is as thoughtful and meticulous as ever. Once again, master cartoonist Tomine probes the space where private alienation becomes universal: you’ll connect viscerally with the characters in these two new stories.

La liste des choses qui existent

La liste des choses qui existent
by Iris and Cathon

Montréal locals and first-time collaborators Cathon and Iris have compiled an exhaustive list of completely made up facts in this book of graphic vignettes: did you know, for instance, that the first pajamas were the bodies of wild animals, slipped on by cavemen snuggling down to sleep? Raucously ridiculous.

Waging Heavy Peace

Waging Heavy Peace
by Neil Young

Now in paperback. This delightful memoir has all of Young’s quirky charm, and it serves up more than rock nostalgia: newly sober Neil is just as invested in cataloguing his current fascinations as the old friends and lives he’s had along the way, all told with the open passion and intelligence we know so well from his music.
