Book Description
One of the great novels of the 1930s, Such Is My Beloved recounts the tragic story of two down-and-out prostitutes and the young priest who aspires to redeem their lives.

Book Description
First published in 1935, this novel is a penetrating study of a father and son caught in the moral and economic undertow of the Great Depression. The action hinges upon a sudden mischance in which accident and intention tragically coincide. Swept along by the inexorable logic of events, Callaghan’s protagonists are forced to re-examine the nature of individual conscience and responsibility. In their personal struggle is expressed the mood of the age, its cynicism and anger, its desperate idealism, and its agonized longing for redemption.

White Narcissus
Raymond Knister

March 1990
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Ontario farmland described with arresting clarity in White Narcissus is, despite its beauty and abundance, “a place of choked vistas” where bitterness and rivalry have taken root. Against this backdrop Raymond Knister portrays the triumph of longing over despair, as his hero, Richard Milne, struggles to redeem his childhood sweetheart from the spiritual imprisonment of her parents’ home.

First published in 1929, White Narcissus was a groundbreaking work in the development of the Canadian realist novel, fusing Knister’s imagistic sensibility with the deeply felt experience of a real time and place.

Knister died tragically at the age of thirty-three, before his contribution was recognized in his own country and before the full potential of his remarkable talent...

Paradise
Louis Dudek
1550650327
January 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Louis Dudek has been a poet, critic, teacher, modernist theoretician, editor, and publisher. His contribution to Canadian literature has been essential--Dudek is Canada's "first man of letters" as Wynne Francis so aptly puts it. Paradise includes essays on Nabokov's Pale Fire, the literary quarrel between Morley Callaghan and John Glassco, the idea of art, the poetry and prose of R.J. MacSween, the poetry of Ken Norris, and a major essay on myth (which was the 1991 F.R. Scott Lecture at McGill University). It is vintage Dudek--analytical, controversial, lyrical, intelligent, and never boring.

“However we view it, Typing is the most penetrating exploration of the dark side of creative genius I’ve read since Lawrence Durrell’s The Black Book....” – The Globe and Mail
