The Golem’s Mighty Swing

The Golem’s Mighty Swing
by James Sturm

New D&Q reprint! Combining a tale of America’s favourite pastime and its hidden history, James Strum’s The Golem’s Mighty Swing shows us “what America wishes it had been, and what America actually was.”

So Pretty, Very Rotten

So Pretty, Very Rotten
by Jane Mai & An Nguyen

Our friends at Koyama Press have come through with a brilliant collection of comics and essays on Lolita fashion and cute culture by two cartoonists who go beyond the clothes.

Colette’s Lost Pet

Colette’s Lost Pet
by Isabelle Arsenault

This heartfelt story by local author and illustrator Isabelle Arsenault is set in the Mile-End, and explores the turbulence felt when Colette tells increasingly drastic fibs to impress new friends.

The Milk of Dreams

The Milk of Dreams
by Leonora Carrington

Leonora Carrington’s centennial has been marked by a flurry of publications of her work, including this surreal and whimsical book of children’s poems.

Fugue States

Fugue States

Fugue States, the latest effort from Canadian novelist Pasha Malla, is a story about grappling with masculinity, loss, and the untraceable tug one feels to one’s ancestral land.
