Montreal Launch for Curry by Naben Ruthnum

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, 211 Bernard Ouest, Montreal Aug 24 07:00 pm - Aug 24 07:00 pm

No two curries are the same. In Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race, Naben Ruthnum asks why the dish is supposed to represent everything brown people eat, read, and do. Using familial recipes and popular literary examples, Ruthnum cracks open anew the staid narrative of an authentically Indian diasporic experience. 
Whet your appetite with a spicy reading, have a rich Q&A for desert, and satisfy your cravings for more by taking a signed book home (doggy bag not included).

Toronto Lit Up presents Martha Baillie & Camilla Grudova

Burdock, 1184 Bloor Street West, Toronto Sep 19 07:00 pm - Sep 19 07:00 pm

In partnership with IFOA: International Festival of Authors and Toronto Lit Up, we're launching our fall fiction titles with shadow puppets, klezmer music, and plenty of dark, sinuous vibes.

In If Clara by MARTHA BAILLIE, no one stands on firm ground. Daisy, an author confined to her home, her leg in a cast from hip to ankle, receives a parcel containing the manuscript of a brilliant novel about a Syrian refugee in North America. She's asked by its author, Clara, to pose as a fictional Syrian writer. Perspectives shift, boundaries between art and life, viewer and object, are breached, and all of these stories unfold, collide and fall into place in a most unexpected way.

The Doll's Alphabet is CAMILLA GRUDOVA's debut short story collection from an unholy marriage of Angela Carter, Sheila Heti, and H. P. Lovecraft. Full of dolls, sewing machines, tinned foods, mirrors, malfunctioning bodies, Camilla Grudova has built a universe that's highly imaginative, incredibly original, and absolutely discomfiting.

Brian Katz (guitar, piano) and famed jazz and Jewish music artist Jonno Lightstone (klezmer clarinetist and flutist) combine their talents to explore some rarely performed klezmer repertoire. They are joined by virtuoso bassist George Koller, best known for his work in jazz, free jazz and world music. Bringing together a multitude of musical styles and experience, they create a variety of diverse moods by weaving the melodies of klezmer and Yiddish song with the sounds and textures of chamber music, jazz, Indian raga, Israeli music and down home rock n' blues.

What's Inside: Coach House Books Fall Launch

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, 12 Alexander Street, Toronto Oct 05 07:00 pm

This fall we're putting everything on the table to see what's inside.
Our fall fiction titles artfully dissect questions surrounding creation, ownership, and people in disrepair. MARTHA BAILLIE's If Clara is a compelling exploration of whose voices are heard in the modern din. The stories in The Doll's Alphabet, CAMILLA GRUDOVA's grotesquely enchanting debut, do more than get under a reader's skin - they make purposeful incisions..
NABEN RUTHNUM's Curry adds to the innovation and probing reputation of the Exploded Views series.
In poetry, SINA QUEYRAS puts Sylvia Plath's Ariel, along with her own family baggage under the knife. JAY RITCHIE brings unparalleled wit to the everyday in Cheer Up, Jay Ritchie. And, unlike a patient etherized upon a table, JERAMY DODDS' Drakkar Noir refuses to lie still.
So, come and see what's inside.

Fall Poetry Launch

La Vitrola, 4602 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal Oct 11 07:00 pm - Oct 11 07:00 pm

Join us and Librairie Drawn & Quarterly as we present our fall poetry lineup at La Vitrola. 

Sina Queyras's My Ariel is a poem-by-poem engagement with Sylvia Plath's Ariel and the towering mythology surrounding it. Queyras barges into one of the iconic texts of the twentieth century, with her own family baggage in tow, exploring and exploding the cultural norms, forms, and procedures that frame and contain the lives of women.

Jeramy Dodds's Drakkar Noir is a haunting, yet hilarious depiction of a journey to and fro the furthest limits of the human experiment. A warlock of words, Dodds astonishes readers and non-readers alike.
https://chbooks.com/Books/D/Drakkar-Noir

Cheer Up, Jay Ritchie is Jay's first full-length collection of poetry. CUJR grapples with death, disappointment, love, emails – the large and small subjects of daily life. His unflagging sense of humour and aphoristic delivery create a work that is personable yet elevated, witty, and honest.

Linda Besner, author of spring 2017's Feel Happier in Nine Seconds, will be hosting.
