Oblong 16mo. 119pp. One of 400 copies perfect bound (using glue guns no less) into silver coated paper, with the covers silk-screened and decorated with what the publishers call 'gore' (this seems to be a rather heavy red paint). The tail edges have also been treated with 'gore', often sticking the pages together making it possible to read the book only after physically separating them. The tail edge has also been cut on an odd angle, giving the book a rather bird-like shape when opened.

ALEXIS, Andre: Beauty & Sadness
ALEXIS, Andre. Beauty & Sadness. Toronto: Anansi, 2010. First Edition. 189x130mm. Trade Paperback. New. 268pp. Beauty and Sadness is a journey through literary space with one of our most perceptive writers. Award-winning novelist and critic AndrÈ Alexis explores worlds with names such as "Henry James," "Maupassant," and "Kawabata," trying, like any traveller, to faithfully convey what he sees and feels in those places while giving a convincing portrait of himself. At the same time, Beauty and Sadness is an autobiography. Alexis's intent is to give a sense of what it is like to live ecstatically through literature -- what it is like to read Tolstoy and feel that "The Death of Ivan Ilych," for instance, is connected to the land of his birth, Trinidad, as intimately as it is to his home, Canada. In the final piece of the book, entitled "Water," Alexis gives the reader an intimate sense of what it has been like to live as a writer these last twenty years while practicing an art form (fiction/literature) that he contends is in decline. In the author's own words: "Beauty and sadness is where world and words meet."

ALLAND, Sandra: Blissful Times
A creature, a possible he actually, in perhaps to whereas,it hardly / it indeed, be ëfellow.íBe asking to appear at, asking to think of, Other.You would ask about the heart, the needs,the times all great, not peace.See peace for moon, one moon,does your look seem less?Deal time into this when.Then what left? Do any of us really speak the same language? Blissful Times is a collection of poetry that tries to find out. Beginning with found text from Samuel Beckettís Happy Days, Sandra Alland ëtranslatesí the poem 65 times, morphing it into different poetic forms and emotional states, even different media. Using formal constraints, specialty dictionaries, internet search and translation engines, voice-activated software, the weather, global news and personal experiences, Alland invents pieces ranging from lyric poetry to sound poetry, from theatre to rant, from photography to Boggle. Edgy, passionate, amusing and intelligent, Blissful Times is a poetic cocktail for our troubled times.Sandra Alland is a writer and multimedia artist who has published and presented her work in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Bermuda, Spain, Scotland and England. Her first full-length book, Proof of a Tongue was hailed as ëa stunning first collection of poetry, displaying immense talent and skill.í Known for her evocative readings and performances, Sandra incorporates sound and movement into poetry in fresh and exciting ways. A bookseller and micropress publisher, she advocates for the protection and nourishment of independent publishers and bookstores. Sandra has been living for 33 years - 19 in Scarborough and 14 in Toronto.77pp; 5.25 x 8.5 paperbackISBN 0-9781587-6-8978-0-9781587-6-7 $20.00AVAILABLE
