The Trouble with Brunch: Work, Class and the Pursuit of Leisure, the latest title in our Exploded Views series, is now available for purchase through the Coach House website. Award-winning writer and urbanist Shawn Micallef takes on the hallowed tradition of brunch, rethinking it as a way to look more closely at the nature of work itself and a catalyst for solidarity among the so-called creative class.

Cinema of the Present

Lisa Robertson's Cinema of the Present is featured in Publisher's Weekly's Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2014! The list is picked by PW's reviews editors and pulled from a Fall Announcements issue with more than 14,000 titles. To see what other new releases are being buzzed about, you can have a look at the rest of the list here.

Coffee Room

Coach House is watching you. (We’re also declassifying a cache of stealthy Fall titles.)

Geoff Pevere, author of Gods of the Hammer: The Teenage Head Story, has curated a playlist of seventeen songs containing essential tracks by Teenage Head as well as by bands that influenced their high-energy style. Read Geoff's annotations while you listen and (re)discover how Teenage Head is 'capable of sweetening and shredding your eardrums at the same time.'

The Coach House (HQ of Coach House Books and Coach House Printing) has a charmingly ramshackle coffee room. And for over 45 years, that room has served as a meeting space for writers, publishers, artists, readers, musicians and more. It's a pretty informal space with some very informal gatherings, but throughout 2014, the Coach House is hosting a monthly Kaffeeklatsch.


Shawn Micallef's highly anticipated The Trouble with Brunch is finally here, and what better way to celebrate than with a cereal bar, at Handlebar? 

Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce its 2014 summer exhibition, Mirror.
