Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Fifteen years in the making, this book is the one Canada’s “heavyweight champ of brash and beautiful literature” was meant to write. An epic masterwork about Newfoundland’s working class, Blackstrap Hawco spans more than a century in gorgeous and widely varied prose, reminding us that even when writing about the degradation of identity and language, Harvey does it magnificently. Named in a moment of anger, Blackstrap Hawco is heir to an island dominion picked over by its adoptive nation. From the arrivals of the indentured Irish to the Victorian drawing rooms of the English merchants, from the perilous seal hunt to the raucous iron ore mines, from a notorious disaster at sea to the relocation of outport communities, the family legend might be all his people have left to live for. But as Blackstrap Hawco – a novel that will consume you in its dazzling swirl of voices, legends and beautiful hearsay – testifies, a story this haunting, this powerful, might just be enough.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Revolutions is the first book-length critical survey of twenty-first-century Canadian fiction, with in-depth essays examining subjects such as the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the effects of the digital revolution, and the dark legacy of what has come to be know as the Canadian literary establishment. Throughout, close reading is given to many contemporary authors, with particular attention paid to such central figures as Douglas Coupland and David Adams Richards. Alex Good explains and contextualizes this period in Canadian fiction for the general reader, providing a much-needed critical re-assessment of Canadian writing in the new millennium. By offering a contrary yet thoughtful position to that taken by our nation’s most prominent literary tastemakers, Good offers a vigorous commentary on the state of Canadian literature—where we are and how we got here.

Book excerpt/synopsis : "Fourteen years after being wrongfully convicted of a murder Mister Myrden is pardoned and released from prison. Stepping back into the world, he feels overwhelmed and disorientated on the outside. hen he returns to his old neighbourhood, a street where violence lurks behind practically every door, he finds himself out of place and ambivalent to his wife, who is living in another man's house, to his friends, who want both to celebrate and to provoke further violence, and to the one million dollars compensation he has received from the government. What Myrden wants is his daughter, now married to an abusive man, and his beloved granddaughter out of that neighbourhood. Written in abrupt prose that brilliantly reflects Myrden's cautious evaluation of everyone and everything, Inside pulls the reader forward with the quiet, creeping gravity of Greek tragedy. It is a dazzling novel about the institutions we create in order to keep people confined, and about a destructive family shutting off its children from life's vast possibilities.
