From Publishers Weekly
Colloquial, interlocking stories chronicle the ups and downs of a suburban Toronto couple in this warm-hearted latest by Canadian author and broadcast personality McLean (Stories from the Vinyl Café). "Holland" considers the courtship and marriage of Dave, the owner of the eponymous record store, and his wife, Morley; early differences in perspective (she thinks eating raw onions is gross; he can't stand those frou-frou chive snippets in his eggs) lead them to a spontaneous skating trip to Holland to cement their romance. "Sourdough" concerns what happens when a neighbor asks Dave to baby-sit the starter for his precious sourdough bread; the sweet, charming "Burd" charts the consequences of Dave's decision to feed an unlikely avian visitor. Dave's daughter and niece enter the picture in subsequent stories,...

Event and Its Terrors: Ireland, Famine, Modernity

Hardcover

Book Description
"The Event and its Terrors" undertakes a critical reimagining of one of the major events of Irish history—the Great Famine of the 1840s—and of its subsequent legacies. Drawing on a wide range of sources, past and present, it considers the emergence of the Famine as an object of historical knowledge and controversy with reference both to the experience of modernity and to the production of academic and nationalist histories in colonial and post-independence Ireland. In doing so, it explores the possibility of alternative modes of engagement with the past via contemporary eyewitness accounts, oral histories, literature, folklore, and present-day commemorative events.

From AudioFile
One of Canada's most beloved writers, W. O. Mitchell, was said to PERFORM his work, not merely read it. This two-CD set features five of Mitchell's most famous pieces, recorded over seven years at three different venues across Canada. Mitchell's playful voice, combined with his impeccable pace and timing, carries audiences through such wonderful yarns as "How To Fail At Public Speaking" and "Melvin Arbuckle's First Course In Shock Therapy." Mitchell once said that he loved "the immediate thrust of a live audience as it responds to story magic." This impressive recording is a perfect illustration of precisely that sort of magic.
