Notable Reviews

“The book is partly a memoir of an idyllic Yukon childhood in the bygone era of the mining town, ripped apart at the seams by a father’s dreams of fortune. It is also a true-crime story, telling a piece of Yukon history that could have been slowly lost along with the memories of those who lived through it. Finally, it is an account of Alicia’s effort to piece together her own history, visit the places of her childhood and learn something of the man her endlessly adored father had been.”
~ Jacqueline Ronson, Yukon News, October 2014

“A ripping good read...Heart-breaking, hilarious and suspenseful...This is a consummately well-written book, achieving the near-impossible feat of maintaining a journalist’s objective distance while literally tracking her father’s fifty-year-old footsteps and disclosing painful family secrets with restraint and dignity.”
~ BC Bookworld, Autumn 2014

Notable Reviews

“I was hooked from the first sentence. I wanted – needed – to know what happened next. What I Want To Tell Goes Like This, a collection of short stories set in Cumberland, Comox and various places in between, is dark, gritty and very seductive.”
~ Paula Wild, Comox Valley Record, October 16, 2014

“Enthralling...While his stories show that little in life is certain, What I Want to Tell Goes Like This demonstrates that Rader’s future ought to include a long career in literature.”
~ Erin Anderson, The Coastal Spectator, October 14, 2014

“In his new short fiction collection, What I Want To Tell Goes Like This (Nightwood Editions), Matt Rader turns Canada’s collective past into autobiography. Steeped largely in the brooding imagery of the Pacific Northwest, Rader makes the forgotten characters of Vancouver Island’s history his own—from striking coal miners to commune-running Russian religious exiles to cowboys who wandered just a little too far north from Montana. But his ability to capture the complicated pulse of history becomes clear not only while bringing to life those names long confined to archives and sepia-toned photographs. In fact, his writing thrives in describing everyday moments filled by unsaid or insufficient words, whether in bed with a loved one or unexpectedly downing whisky and beer at an airport bar with an old friend.”

The Boreal Feast will leave your mouth watering!”
~ Ottawa Life magazine

“With creations like Solstice-Cured Lake Trout, Gravlad Lax and Birch Syrup Panna Cotta with Rhubarb Compote, northern and southern dwellers alike will be inspired.”
~ Kathleen Macknicki, Alaska Dispatch News, September 2014

“A milestone compendium that includes both mouthwatering recipes...and vivid evocations of how they’re enjoyed across the region (the book’s handsome photos were shot by Cathie Archbould), leaves no mossy stone unturned in the pursuit of gastronomic exotica.”
~ Danny Sinopoli, Globe and Mail, September 2014

Notable Reviews

“If fish could sing, they'd surely croon many a good tune for retired fishery officer Randy Nelson… 
Delivered in Nelson's light-hearted and entertaining way, it offers the reader a rare glimpse into the serious business of wildlife protection, and the sometimes frustrating bureaucracy within the federal fisheries department.”

“…Her language is direct and straightforward, forcefully specific, as she squeezes, muscles and manipulates the various and ever-changing constellation of gendered expectations she encounters…Rosnau has a complex, sometimes embattled relationship with sex and gender, but she also fiercely defends and deeply explores it…”

Mention in the Burnaby Now, September 4, 2014

Notable Reviews

“Fluid and intimate...Diane Tucker digs deep into the darkest and most beautiful aspects of humanity’s relation to art, music, and literature...In Bonsai Love, even the most eloquent moments can be violent. Tucker creates a melancholy so bittersweet it seems to resound endlessly with its empty, but ever-present, pain: “my life / a blue-lit nightmare / into which you blundered.” Tucker sweetly mocks our habits, our desire to put a pin in the stars and “learn / without maps.” The effect is both loving and jarring, both comforting and cruel. We feel alone and in communion when reading Bonsai Love; the experience is spiritual and intimate, but ultimately it tears us from the comfort of our past selves.”
~ CV2 Magazine, September 2014

“Burnaby writer Diane Tucker's fourth book of poetry, full of everyday yet newly experienced images, conveys strong and universal emotions. Tucker's spare yet always sensual poetry seems to vibrate with her sense of fulfillment, loss and longing.”
~Annie Boulanger, Burnaby Now, June 2014

Notable Reviews

“Illustrated by the much-honoured and beloved artist Roy Henry Vickers, Cloudwalker is a visually glorious book. Vickers and oral historian Robert Budd joined forces on last year’s lauded Raven Brings the Light, and with this follow-up—part of a series retelling First Nations legends of the Pacific Northwes—the duo once again uses a human character’s supernatural experiences to explain the origin of a natural element…
“A picture book, an ecologically minded adaptation of a traditional legend, and an art book all in one, Cloudwalker can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.”
~ Quill & Quire, May 2014

Notable Reviews

“Rhodes dismisses the entire academic class of Canuck bards who look to Europe or Asia for their tutelage rather than face our “native” heritage of oppression…. I admire the radical sport of Rhodes’ lyrics and I admit my total support of his politics…Rhodes takes us down twisty, dangerous roads — of conscience and consciousness, forcing us to recognize the sins of our Confederation.”

Reading at the Cascadia Poetry Festival in Nanaimo, BC, which runs April 30 to May 3, 2015. Final dates/times TBA.

Notable Reviews

In Antarctica is a beautiful melding of the personal and the public, the past and the present, research and emotion. Ruzesky presents the facts of Amundsen’s life and work, yet also captures Amundsen’s dreams and despairs. Just as Amundsen was foiled in his goal of being the first man to reach the North Pole and had to change plans, so Ruzesky also failed follow exactly in Amundsen’s footsteps and reach the Pole. Both men adapted, doing what they were able to do, and creating compelling stories in the process.”

“Vancouver media man Ed Willes has a cool new book out if you love the CFL. Called End Zones/Border Wars, Willes writes about the era of U.S. expansion in the CFL. It was, ultimately, a disaster, but also one of the more fascinating chapters in CFL history.”
