Aaron is a conscientious raw vegan whose beliefs about food are tied to personal and social well-being.

A fun romp through the cultural history of the mustache.

ONE THOUSAND MUSTACHES A Cultural History of the Mo NEW RELEASE

The ’stache is back! After decades of being much maligned in Western culture, the mustache is enjoying a cultural renaissance, thanks to the annual phenomenon of Movember (the international campaign in which men grow facial hair during the month of November to raise funds for prostate cancer research; in 2011, 1.8 million men in fourteen countries participated), and the retro/modern mo’s sported by the likes of Ryan Gosling, Ashton Kutcher, and James Franco. Shaving companies are offering new-fangled mustache groomers, and even Dr Seuss’s mustachioed The Lorax has made a comeback. One Thousand Mustaches is both a lighthearted cultural history and an earnest style manual: it’s the story of the ’stache through the ages and its manifestations in politics, war, movies, music, sports, and art, as well as information on various ’stache styles and how to grow and wear them with pride. The book also includes numerous photos and drawings throughout. Contemplating a handlebar or considering a Fu Manchu? Find them and more styles here in One Thousand Mustaches: a book for those with mo’s, and those who love ’em.

Ivan E. Coyote’s first book aimed at queer youth: stories about being true to yourself.

ONE IN EVERY CROWD NEW RELEASE

Ivan E. Coyote is one of Canada’s best-loved storytellers; her honest, wry, plain-spoken tales of growing up in the Yukon and living out loud on the west coast have attracted readers and live audiences around the world. For many years, Ivan has performed in high schools, where her talks have inspired and galvanized many young people to embrace their own sense of self and to be proud of who they are. One in Every Crowd, Ivan’s eighth book with Arsenal Pulp Press, is her first specifically for queer youth. Comprised of new stories and others culled from previous collections, One in Every Crowd is for anyone who has ever felt different or alone in their struggle to be true to themselves. Included are stories about Ivan’s own tomboy past in Canada’s north, where playing hockey and wearing pants were the norm; and about her adult life in the big city, where she encounters both cruelty and kindness in unexpected places. Then there are the tales of family and friends who live their lives by example, like Francis, the curlyhaired little boy who likes to wear dresses, and the brave kids she meets at queer youth camp.

Ivan E. Coyote Ivan E. Coyote is a writer, performer, and author of six previous books published by Arsenal Pulp Press, the most recent of which is Missed Her (page 30). Ivan is also the co-editor (with Zena Sharman) of the anthology Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme (page 21). One of her stories appears in the anthology It Gets Better, edited by Dan Savage and Terry Miller.

Musician Rae Spoon’s first book, about a young person growing up queer in Alberta.

FIRST SPRING GRASS FIRE NEW RELEASE

Transgender indie electronica singer-songwriter Rae Spoon has six albums to their credit, including 2012’s I Can’t Keep All of Our Secrets. This first book by Rae (who uses “they” as a pronoun) is a candid, powerful story about a young person growing up queer in a strict Pentecostal family in Alberta. The narrator attends church events and Billy Graham rallies faithfully with their family before discovering the music that becomes their salvation and means of escape. As their father’s schizophrenia causes their parents’ marriage to unravel, the narrator finds solace and safety in the company of their siblings, in their nascent feelings for a girl at school, and in their growing awareness that they are not the person their parents think they are. With a heart as big as the prairie sky, this is a quietly devastating, heartwrenching coming-of-age book about escaping dogma, surviving abuse, finding love, and risking everything for acceptance. From First Spring Grass Fire: I would stare at the slivers of the Rocky Mountains that I could see from my bunk bed and imagine crawling over them like they were tiny pebbles to the ocean. I would look into the clouds for messages that confirmed my doubts and found nothing—just a huge God-filled sky over the dry grass on Nose Hill, brown after the snow had melted and waiting for a cigarette to set the first spring grass fire.

Rae Spoon Rae Spoon is a transgender musician/writer/workshop facilitator originally from Calgary. Rae has been nominated for a Polaris Prize, toured internationally, and released six solo albums. They were recently published in the Arsenal Pulp anthology Persistence (page 21) and composed the instrumental score for the National Film Board film Dead Man. Rae will soon be the subject of a National Film Board documentary. Rae lives in Montreal.

An epic graphic novel for young people about Chinese immigrants in North America.

ESCAPE TO GOLD MOUNTAIN A Graphic History of the Chinese in North America NEW RELEASE

The history of Chinese immigration to North America over the past 100-plus years has been fraught with sadness and indignity; newcomers encountered discrimination, subjugation, and separation from loved ones, and in the US, the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act outright banned Chinese immigration to America. Despite such obstacles, these Chinese newcomers persevered in order to create a better life for the generations to come. Escape to Gold Mountain is the first graphic novel to tell their story: based on historical documents and interviews with elders, this is a vivid history of the Chinese in their search for “Gold Mountain” (the Chinese colloquialism for North America) as seen through the eyes of the Wong family. They traverse the challenges of eking out an existence in their adopted homeland with hope and determination, creating a poignant immigrant’s legacy for their sons and daughters. Escape to Gold Mountain is a moving and gripping story for all young people. Ages 12 and up.

David H.T. Wong David H.T. Wong was born and raised in Vancouver, where he still lives. He is an accomplished architect and a respected Asian-Canadian community activist whose family first emigrated from China 130 years ago.

An extravagant novel about powerful desires that destroy and create.

THE LAVA IN MY BONES NEW RELEASE

A frustrated geologist studying global warming becomes obsessed with eating rocks after embarking on his first same-sex relationship in Europe. Back home, his young sister is a high school girl who suddenly starts to ooze honey through her pores, an affliction that attracts hordes of bees as well as her male classmates but ultimately turns her into a social pariah. Meanwhile, their obsessive Pentecostal mother repeatedly calls on the Holy Spirit to rid her family of demons. The siblings are reunited on a ship bound for Europe where they hope to start a new life, but are unaware that their disguised mother is also on board and plotting to win back their souls, with the help of the Virgin Mary. Told in a lush baroque prose, this intense, extravagant magic-realist novel combines elements of fairy tales, horror movies, and romances to create a comic, hallucinatory celebration of excess and sensuality.

Barry Webster Barry Webster’s first book, The Sound of All Flesh (Porcupine’s Quill), won the ReLit Award for best shortstory collection in 2005.

A Queer Film Classic on Hitchcock’s acclaimed homoerotic thriller.

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN A Queer Film Classic NEW RELEASE

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1951 thriller based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith (who also wrote The Talented Mr. Ripley) is about two men who meet on a train: one wishes to divorce his unfaithful wife so he can marry a US senator’s daughter; the other is an enigmatic bachelor with an overbearing father. Together they enter into a murder plot that binds them to one another, with fatal consequences. This Queer Film Classic delves into the homoerotic energy of the film, especially between the two male characters (played by Farley Granger and Robert Walker). It builds on the question of the sexuality the film puts on view, not to ask whether either character is gay so much as to explore the queer relations between sexuality and murder and the strong antisocial impulses those relations represent. The book also includes a look at the making of the film and the critical controversies over Hitchcock’s representations of male homosexuality.

Jonathan Goldberg Jonathan Goldberg is Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor of English at Emory University in Atlanta, where he has directed the Studies in Sexualities Program since 2008. He is the author of many books, including Writing Matter, Sodometries, and Desiring Women Writing, and is the editor of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s posthumous 2012 book The Weather in Proust.

NEW RELEASE

Ma vie en rose (“My life in pink”) is the acclaimed 1997 Belgian film directed by Alain Berliner, about a seven-year-old garçon-fille (boygirl) who loves wearing dresses watching Le monde de Pam, and celebrating pink as the true color of gender, sexuality, and race. Ludovic lives happily in the suburbs with his typical nuclear family, and his parents indulge his taste for being a she until his bold wedding game with Jérôme, the boy next door, provokes a family crisis by setting things queer in the pastelcolored neighborhood. The film won a Golden Globe Award for best foreign film but was rated Restricted by the Motion Picture Association of America, a move that some regarded as transphobic. The film resonates in current debates on transgenderism, especially as they relate to children.

V6A Writing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside Elee Kralji Gardner and John Mikhail Asfour, editors

NEW RELEASES

“V6A” is the postal prefix for what is often described as “the poorest neighbourhood in Canada”—Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES). Statistics about the area depict conditions related to crime, drugs, sex work, and poverty that overshadow another reality based on self-determination. The anthology V6A refracts the experience of thirty-two writers, emerging and established, who have been a part of the DTES community in some way. Their prose, poetry, and essays reappropriate the coding of the area and recast the DTES as a site of creative energy and human dignity. Includes a preface by writer Gary Geddes. Partial proceeds from the sale of this book will fund Thursdays Writing Collective, a program for DTES writers directed by co-editor Elee Kraljii Gardiner.

HEIDIGGER STAIRWELL Kayt Burgess Music journalist Evan Strocker has almost finished a book about his time with Heidegger Stairwell, an indie-rock legend from small-town Ontario whose members he has known his whole life. But the band thinks he’s left a little too much of himself on the page—letting his experiences as a transgender man and his complicated “romance” with the lead guitarist eclipse the story of the group’s dramatic rise and fall. Through notes and marginalia, the musicians argue over their friend’s version of the truth and fight to put their own testimony on the record. And, as Strocker’s manuscript finally comes together, both band and writer are forced to face a shocking new event that will change their fortunes once again. Heidegger Stairwell is the winner of the 34th Annual International 3-Day Novel Contest—a notorious literary marathon held every Labor Day weekend that pushes writers to produce risky, original, and fast-paced narratives within highly demanding constraints.

An Illustrated History of D.O.A.

A Life in Punk Joe Keithley

Joe Keithley The punk band D.O.A., established in 1978, is considered one of the founders of hardcore punk, alongside such other seminal groups as Black Flag and Minor Threat. Its slogan, “Talk – Action = 0,” refers to the importance of artists and others who need to “walk the walk” when it comes to their politics. This large-format book is a sprawling visual history of the group by lead singer/guitarist Keithley—made up of vintage photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and other various ephemera—that offers a visceral glimpse into the hardcore life of one of the hardest-working punk bands in the business. They rock out. They blow the roof off. Some of the best shows I’ve ever seen in my life were D.O.A. gigs.

AFTER CANAAN

SEEING REDS

Essays on Race, Writing, and Region

The Red Scare of 1918–1919, Canada’s First War on Terror

Wayde Compton

Daniel Francis

The first non-fiction book by acclaimed Vancouver poet Wayde Compton repositions the North American discussion of race in the wake of the tumultuous 20th century. These varied essays, steeped in a kind of history rarely written about, explore the language of racial misrecognition (a.k.a. “passing”), the poetics of hip hop turntablism, and the impact of the Obama phenomenon on the way we speak about race itself.

Author Daniel Francis examines Canada’s Red Scare in a global context, including government responses to similar activities in the United States and western Europe, as well as its ramifications for the contemporary war on terror, in which issues of free speech and political dissent are similarly compromised in the name of national security. Seeing Reds is a gripping account of a little known episode in Canadian history.

These essays are, first and foremost, essays of ideas rather than style, and Compton’s ideas are always fresh and often downright exhilarating. —Rain Taxi

tion by Sharon Feldman This brilliant novel is set in the 1950s, narrated by a thirteenyear-old who describes himself as a “carnivorous lamb”; an innocent who in truth is anything but. He rebels against those who wish to contain him, and his turbulent rites of passage are veiled responses to a hateful mother, an indifferent father, and the authority of church and state. Winner of France’s Prix Hermès.

Blackbird is a funny, moving coming-of age novel about growing up black and gay in southern California. The lead character, Johnnie Ray Rousseau, is a high school student upset at losing the lead role in the school staging of Romeo and Juliet. All the while, he’s intrigued by Marshall MacNeill, who is surely the sexiest man to walk God’s green earth. This novel of adolescent awakening is as fresh and heartfelt as it was when first published. Duplechan is also author of Lambda Award winner Got ’til it’s Gone.

WORD IS OUT

Will Aitken

Greg Youmans

Analyzes the cultural impact of the Luchino Visconti film Death in Venice, based on Thomas Mann’s novel about a middle-aged homosexual artist vacationing in Venice who becomes obsessed with a youth staying at the same hotel as a wave of cholera descends upon the city. A bracing exploration of both a complicated director and a complex film.

An examination of the historical, political, and aesthetic significance of Word Is Out, a groundbreaking 1977 documentary that profiles the lives of gay men and lesbians of different ages, races, and backgrounds. Youmans delves beneath the film’s placid surface to explore the backstory of its making, from the complicated relationships among its six filmmakers to the more than 140 pre-interviews conducted in the search for the perfect cast.

A romp ... Aitken zigzags from Platen to Plato to Visconti’s love life with irresistible charm. —Washington Post What makes the book so engaging is how Aitken depicts the director’s fascinating life. —2B Magazine

Youmans’ monograph is a work that is filled with richness and contradiction, elements that fill our daily lives. —Senses of Cinema

Pearson A Queer Film Classic on John Greyson’s controversial 1993 film musical about the AIDS crisis which combines experimental, camp musical, and documentary aesthetics while refuting the legend of Patient Zero, the male flight attendant accused of bringing the AIDS crisis to North America. A gripping tale ... Passionate and smart. —Washington Post Knabe and Pearson do a stellar job summarizing the political and populist discourse about AIDS in Canada in the early years of the disease. —Quill and Quire

Montreal Main considers the brilliant yet neglected 1974 Canadian film set in Montreal’s bohemian neighborhood “The Main” and hailed at its premiere at the Whitney Museum of American Art. The movie, directed and starring Frank Vitale, is a fascinating cinema vérité take on North American social mores and relationships in the 1970s, about a twentysomething photographer living among the outcasts, junkies, and artists populating the Main, and his growing obsession with Johnny, the young son of acquaintances, a relationship that is doomed from the start. A passionate hybrid of theory, film criticism and social history, engaging the cutting edge of contemporary sexual politics. —John Greyson, filmmaker

FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE

Shohini Ghosh

A Queer Film Classic

Farewell My Concubine is a thought-provoking consideration of Chen Kaige’s acclaimed 1992 Chinese film set in the mid-20th century about two male Peking opera stars and the woman who comes between them, set against the political turmoil of a China in transition. The film’s treatment of gender performance and homosexuality was a first in Chinese cinema, and the subject of much controversy there. An intimate, provocative and original look at the film ... I left this book with a deep understanding not only of the film itself but also the way in which sexuality and gender has developed and grown in China in the last two centuries. —GScene magazine (UK)

Law of Desire has been acknowledged as redefining the way in which cinema can portray the difficult affective relationships between homosexuality, gender, and sex. This book examines the political and social context in which Almodóvar created Law of Desire, as well as its impact on LGBT cinema both in Europe and around the world. [Quiroga] views the narrative within larger social, sexual, and cultural contexts, and his supporting analyses of specific scenes, cinematic elements, and dialog reflect his extensive research, as do his references to other works by director Pedro Almodovar. —Library Journal

Moving from the slums of Britain in the early 20th century to the new era of “talkies” in Hollywood and beyond, Gods and Monsters looks at the historical events that helped shape director James Whale (played by Ian McKellen) and his films. In 1957, long after his career had peaked, he recounts his experiences to his young, straight gardener (played by Brendan Fraser), with whom he forms an uncommon bond. Noah Tsika’s book examines Gods and Monsters from a variety of perspectives, highlighting the complexity and significance of its achievements, including its fusion of fantasy and biography. A blend of fascinating personal tidbits and keenly defined insights, Tsika gives the book a feel of authenticity that goes beyond intellectual honesty and reaches emotional genuineness. —EDGE performing arts (film) isbn 978-1-55152-263-0 $14.95

In this taut, beautifully layered novel, Michael-David is a paranoid actor who feels that fame has ruined him. When a film shoot with wolves for co-stars takes a troubling turn, he disappears shortly before the premiere and barricades himself in an L.A. hotel, convinced that he’s cursed and must ride it out in hiding. An intriguing fantasia of Hollywood noir. —Sarah Schulman Cox has a punchy, darkly humorous style that embraces the profane, but is still probing and exciting. —Publishers Weekly

Amber Dawn keeps the proceedings at a darkly whimsical remove from the real hurts of the world. She knows we know that pain is real, that women are made chattels, that masters are cruel. She’s after a larger vision that raises questions about the entire emotionally fraught edifice of our received beliefs about sex, men and women, roles and rights and abuses. —The Globe and Mail

Crossings is revolutionary for its frank and unsettling portrayal of Vicky, a female writer in Vancouver in the early 1960s, an educated and intelligent woman who struggles to come to terms with herself as she navigates an emotionally abusive relationship with Mik, a violent logger and ex-con. Their physical, often violent affair offers an honest and unflinching look at relationships and female suffering. spring 2012 release That rara avis, the novel that makes you say, now here’s a real novelist … Crossings is a powerful novel of a woman discovering herself.

The story is whip smart, and as Malcolm comes to understand his parents’ mistakes and the reality of their lives, he grows to understand who he wants to become, and how he wants to love and connect with the people in his life.
