R EL On February 28, 2013, Benedict XVI became the first pope in nearly 600 years to resign. By doing so, Joseph Ratzinger, the man who became Benedict, also relinquished a controversial religious career in which he was largely responsible for the Catholic Church’s prodigious troubles: his scorched-earth assault on modernity and the world of ideas destroyed any hope of progress in the Church while leaving a trail of shattered lives in its wake. Thanks to his antediluvian teachings about human sexuality, bioethics, and Original Sin, Ratzinger helped the Church to remain a reactionary breeding ground for ultraconservative orthodoxy. Along the way, he enabled the moral and spiritual squalor of clerical child sex abuse that has led to a mass exodus from the pew. In this persuasive new book, author Daniel Gawthrop argues that Ratzinger must not be allowed diplomatic immunity from the abuse scandals that have rocked the Vatican. Gawthrop not only accuses Ratzinger of quitting to avoid dealing with an explosive new sex scandal, but also indicts him for promoting a toxic theology whose destructive impact can be felt far beyond the Church itself. As proof, the book examines Ratzinger’s career in all its infamy, from his medieval understanding of women and demonization of homosexuality to his war on liberation theology. It also offers insight into Ratzinger’s successor, Pope Francis I, and provocative ideas on how the Church can transform itself as a means to restore the faith of its disenchanted followers. Daniel Gawthrop Daniel Gawthrop is the author of four previous books, including The Rice Queen Diaries (Arsenal) and Vanishing Halo: Saving the Boreal Forest (Greystone). He is a self-professed “lapsed Catholic” who has written extensively on the subject for numerous publications. He lives in Vancouver. danielgawthrop.com During his eight years as pope, Ratzinger attempted to rebrand himself from “God’s Rottweiler” to Prince of Peace. The Trial of Pope Benedict reveals the true Ratzinger, in the process telling one of recent history’s most astonishing tales of institutional power, religious bullying, and systemic abuse. isbn 978-1-55152-527-3 current affairs / biography e-isbn 978-1-55152-528-0 / religion 5.5 x 8 | 304 pp | paper rel016000 / bio018000 / rel084000 $15.95 / $15.95 us pub month: june arsenal pulp press page 1 E Joseph Ratzinger and the Vatican’s Assault on Reason, Compassion, and Human Dignity S EA THE TRIAL OF POPE BENEDICT E EA S EL Get with Natasha’s program: a vegan cookbook that provides a multi-faceted approach to health and nutrition.

R EL Over the last 100 years, the image of the muscular man has known no boundaries; it has been the object of envy, admiration, and desire, and used to convey optimal health and fitness, product appeal, political power, and military might. Universal Hunks, David L. Chapman’s follow-up to American Hunks, is a captivating collection of historical images of muscular men from around the world beginning in the 19th century up until the 1970s, including photographs, posters, advertisements, magazine and comic book covers, and product packaging.

Moving, witty, and wise, S. Bear Bergman is an acclaimed writer and lecturer who travels regularly across North America to speak on trans issues. Bear’s first two books, Butch Is a Noun and The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You, are considered seminal texts on the subject of trans life. In this, hir third essay collection, Bear tackles the concept of the “modern family” as one of two trans parents of a young son; in Bear’s extended family “orchard,” drag sisters, leather mentors, sperm-donor parents, and other relations provide more branches of love and support than a mere family tree. Defiantly queer yet full of tenderness and hilarity, Blood, Marriage, Wine & Glitter is a beautifully thought-provoking essay collection that pushes at the parameters of gender norms and redefines the notion of what family is and can be. Bear’s poetry of butchness lets us see into facets of gender that usually aren’t so transparent.

N EW R THE LABORATORY OF LOVE The truth I seek lies beneath the skin, under flesh, below bone, beyond scalpel’s reach. In the 1990s, Patrick Roscoe was known as the great iconoclast of Canadian fiction. As author of such acclaimed short-story collections as Birthmarks and Beneath the Western Slopes and the novels God’s Peculiar Care and The Lost Oasis, his work revealed a deeply personal artfulness and a rare gift for language and character. After dropping out of sight for twelve years, Patrick reclaims his rightful place in the literary limelight with this powerful suite of short fiction set in Spain, Africa, California, and British Columbia. Haunted by wild dogs, tattoo artists, and murdered children, Patrick Roscoe’s characters—lonely, damaged, nomadic—are outsiders in an often brutal and punishing landscape whose disturbing darkness is illuminated by flashes of beauty. In Roscoe’s beguiling laboratory, science meets emotion in experiments that attempt to decipher the forces of love, loss, and longing. Patrick Roscoe Patrick Roscoe was born on the Spanish island of Formentera. He is the author of seven previous novels and short-story collections published between 1990 and 2001. His widely published and anthologized fiction has won two Western Magazine Gold Medal Awards and a National Magazine Award, among others; his short fiction has also received two Distinguished Story citations from Best American Stories and is frequently selected for Best Canadian Stories.

R EL S EA KUESSIPAN E [Naomi Fontaine] writes in the same tradition as Native writers such as Thomas King and Louise Erdrich. —Le Devoir Kuessipan (“to you” in the Innu language) is an extraordinary, meditative novel about life among the Native Innu people in the wilds of northeastern Quebec. Naomi Fontaine, herself an Innu, wrote this novel (in French) at the age of twenty-three; with grace and perfect pitch, she depicts a community of nomadic hunters and fishers, and of hard-working mothers and their children, enduring a harsh, sometimes cruel reality with quiet dignity. Pervading the book is a palpable sense of place and time played out as a series of moments: elders who watch their kin grow up before their eyes; couples engaged in domestic crises, and young people undone by alcohol; caribou-skin drums that bring residents to their feet; and lives spent along a bay that reflects the beauty of the earth and the universal truth that life is a fleeting puzzle whose pieces must be put together before it can be fully lived. With poetic restraint and a documentary-like eye, Kuessipan is a remarkable and intimate portrait of a world that reads like no other. Kuessipan is currently being developed into a French-language motion picture by director Myriam Verreault for Max Films Inc. If you keep on going, there will be sand beneath your feet. You’ll taste the salty air. The sun will start to go down. The sky will put on a show. Let the waves give rhythm to your senses. You will be comforted. Just walk through those spruce trees. Then you’ll see the bay, the beach with its soft sand, the aluminum smelter, the islands, the river as wide as the sea. The ocean, where you came from. Naomi Fontaine; translated by David Homel Naomi Fontaine, a member of the Innu First Nation, was born in Uashat, Quebec, a community with a population of less than 5,000. She was an education student when she wrote Kuessipan, her first novel, which she based on her own experience. She lives in Quebec City.

N EW R ANATOMY OF A GIRL GANG A sharply observed novel told in six voices, Anatomy of a Girl Gang is the powerful exploration of a young girl gang in Vancouver called the Black Roses, “the city’s worst nightmare”: Mac, the self-appointed leader and mastermind; Mercy, the Punjabi princess with a skill for theft; Kayos, their former classmate who gave birth to a daughter at age thirteen; Sly Girl, who fled her First Nations reserve for a better life, only to find depravity and addiction; and Z, a sixteen-year-old antiestablishment graffiti artist. Cast out by mainstream society, the five girls terrorize Vancouver with a primal, restless urgency, setting fire to the world around them as a way to erase their painful pasts. As they navigate from ATM robberies to cooking crack on the stove to savagely avenging the beating of one of their own, they hope and wait for better days that will turn into a better life, even as the darkness of fate draws inevitably nearer. Told with shocking and at times brutal honesty, Anatomy of a Girl Gang is a vivid and unnerving story of urban girl culture.

R EL S EA THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUTH E Kelli Deeth’s first book since her acclaimed 2001 debut The Girl Without Anyone is a collection of stories about missed connections and unrequited desire, in which characters struggle internally and with each other over marriage, childlessness, adoption, adolescent longing, friendship, and death. In “Vera’s Room,” Holly, unable to conceive, negotiates a tense relationship with the seven-year-old girl she and her husband have adopted. In “Embrace,” Theresa, a young woman who has just had an abortion and is trying to survive alone in the big city, decides to give up on sexual desire and love a man, a divorced father, who can provide her with safety. And in “Sis”, Jenny moves back to Toronto from Winnipeg in order to start her life over and reconnect with her step-brother, with whom she shares a complicated past. These are stories about the vagaries of family and the narrow chasm between longing and grief; with a deft hand and a knowing eye, Kelli Deeth creates stories that are devastating, incisive portraits of dysfunction and desire. As she stood there, she could almost hear Michael’s voice, a firm voice that shook when he was upset. He would tell her to be happy with who she was, to hold her head up, to be proud of the choices she had made, because she had made them with her own wellbeing in mind. She and Michael were a family, and who was to say they were not? They were a family like anyone else; no one was missing, no one was wanted, no one would leave the other, and no one would be left alone to fend for themselves. The things they said to each other, over and over; words whose meanings brought little comfort, no matter how beautiful and logical they were, no matter how often they were said, who said them or who heard them, whose voice trembled or whose broke.

R EL S EA PARIS IS BURNING E A Queer Film Classic This latest addition to the Queer Film Classics series is an homage to Paris Is Burning, Jennie Livingstonâ€™s brilliant and award-winning 1991 documentary that captures the energy, ambition, wit, and struggle of African-American and Latino participants in the 1980s New York drag ball scene. An unlikely hit when it was first released, the film is a lively, touchingly empathetic portrait of urban drag culture, introducing such performers as Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija, and Angie Xtravaganza. Paris is Burning generated enthusiastic buzz from audiences and critics, as well as impassioned debate: did the film present a subversive perspective on the crass values of the 1980s, or did it exploit its subjects and pander to privileged movie audiences? Regardless, it is considered one of the key films of the New Queer Cinema, and resonates with audiences to this day. Author Lucas Hilderbrand contextualizes the film within the longer history of drag balls, the practices of documentary, the fervor of the culture wars, and issues of gender, sexuality, race, and class. QUEER FILM CLASSICS is a critically acclaimed book series that launched in 2009, edited by Thomas Waugh and Matthew Hays, covering some of the most important and influential films about and/or by LBTQ people made between 1950 and 2005, and written by leading LGBTQ film scholars and critics.
