Letters to My Daughters A Memoir fa w z i a k o o f i

In the vein of Infidel comes this spellbinding memoir of survival and courage from Afghanistan’s most popular female politician On the day Fawzia Koofi was born, her mother set her under the blazing Afghan sun to die. She was the nineteenth child of twenty-three in a family with seven wives, and her mother did not want another daughter. Despite severe burns that lasted into her teenage years, Fawzia survived and became the favourite child. In Letters to My Daughters, Fawzia tells her remarkable life story. Fawzia’s father was an incorruptible politician strongly attached to Afghan tradition. When he was murdered by the mujahedeen, Fawzia’s illiterate mother decided to send the ten-year-old girl to school, and as the civil war raged, Fawzia

dodged bullets and snipers to attend class, determined to be the first person in her family to receive an education. She went on to marry a man she loved, and they had two cherished daughters, Shohra and Shaharzad. Tragically, the arrival of the Taliban spelled an end to her freedom. Outraged and deeply saddened by the injustice she saw around her, and by the tainting of her Islamic faith, Fawzia discovered politics herself. Fawzia opens each chapter with a letter she has written to her two daughters in which she passes on her wisdom about justice and dignity, not knowing whether she will survive to see them again. In writing Letters to My Daughters, Fawzia has created a fresh take on Afghan society and Islam, and a gripping account of a life lived under the most harrowing of circumstances. fawzia koofi is a member of parliament in Afghanistan’s northern Badakhshan province. Prior to this she worked with unicef and various ngos as a women’s and children’s advocate. In 2009 she was chosen as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. She will run as a presidential candidate in 2014. She is writing the book with Nadene Ghouri, an award-winning bbc journalist and former Al Jazeera reporter who specializes

A riveting behind-the-scenes account of the transformative 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games—an extraordinary story of visionary leadership, love of country and the ability to dream boldly When John Furlong emigrated from Ireland in 1974, the customs officer greeted him with “Welcome to Canada. Make us better”—an imperative that has defined Furlong’s life ever since. A passionate, accomplished athlete with a track record of community service, Furlong was a volunteer for Vancouver’s Olympic bid movement when it began in 1996 and then spent the next 14 years living and breathing the Olympics. Furlong and his organizing team, including 25,000 volunteers and many partners, orchestrated a remarkable Winter Games. Patriot Hearts is the story of how they did it. Working with Globe and Mail columnist Gary Mason, Furlong recounts the lead-up to the Games and describes how he handled seemingly insurmountable setbacks—such as the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, a global recession and the washed­-out snow at Cypress Bowl— to achieve a runaway success and, ultimately, a pivotal moment of nationhood. Patriot Hearts will be published on February 12, 2011, a year after Canada welcomed the world at the opening ceremony. Furlong will donate part of his

How the West Was Lost Fifty Years of Economic Folly—and the Stark Choices Ahead da m b i sa m oyo

The bestselling author of Dead Aid traces the decline of the West’s economic supremacy and offers radical solutions Acclaimed author Dambisa Moyo gives a fresh insider’s perspective on the erosion of Western power over the past 50 years. She examines how the West’s flawed financial decisions and blinkered political and military choices have resulted in an economic and geopolitical seesaw that is now poised to favour the emerging world. Formerly a consultant for the World Bank and an investment banker specializing in emerging markets at Goldman Sachs, Moyo is uniquely positioned to examine the West’s errors and the techniques the emerging countries used to rise on the global economic stage. How the West Was Lost reveals the myopia of the West but also the radical solutions that it needs to adopt in order to reassert itself as a global economic power. A media star, Moyo was featured in Oprah Winfrey’s power list of 20 remarkable visionaries, and Time magazine named her as one of the world’s 100 most influential people. “Here is an African woman, articulate, smart, glamorous, delivering a message of brazen political incorrectness: cut aid to Africa.” independent on Dead Aid dambisa moyo was born in Lusaka, Zambia, and has a PhD in economics from Oxford University and a master’s from Harvard University’s John F. previously listed current affairs February 2011 Hardcover 978-1-55365-5 43-5 $29.95 51/2” x 81/4” · 224 pages Right held: Canada, English

The Right Balance Canada’s Conservative Tradition s e n at o r h u g h s e g a l · foreword by s e n at o r pa m e l a w a l l i n

A provocative case for the special balance and uniquely Canadian nature of the Tory imperative throughout our history In a manner that reflects his long-time academic and practitioner’s association with conservative politics and ideas in Canada, Hugh Segal traces the deep historical roots of Canadian conservatism and the themes that unite its pre- and post-confederation reality with today’s challenges and issues. The Right Balance connects the historical roots and exclusive intellectual principles of Canadian conservatism to the fundamental idea of Canada with a new and insightful perspective. Provocative and timely, this book puts the present Stephen Harper–led Conservatives into a dynamic historical context and gives readers fresh insights into how Canadian Conservatism is different and why, providing depth and texture to today’s headlines. The Right Balance will appeal to both adults and students who are interested in the economics, ideas and dna of our present political debates. “This is an important book.

A devastating memoir of stolen childhood, sold in 19 countries and poised to be an international sensation One summer day, Margaux Fragoso swam up to Peter Curran at a public swimming pool and asked him to play. She was seven; he was fifty-one. When Curran invited her and her mom to see his house, the little girl found a child’s dream world, full of odd pets and books and music and magical toys. Margaux’s mother was devoted, but, beset by mental illness and frightened of her abusive husband, she was only too ready to take advantage of an escape for the daughter she felt incapable of taking care of on her own. Soon Margaux was spending all her time with Peter. In time, he insidiously took on the role of Margaux’s playmate, father, lover and captor. Charming and repulsive, warm and violent, loving and manipulative, Peter burrowed into every aspect of Margaux’s life and transformed her

ingly explored the darkest episodes of her life, helping us see how pedophiles work hidden away in the open to steal childhood. In writing Tiger, Tiger, she has healed herself of a wound that was fourteen years in the making. This extraordinary memoir is an unprecedented glimpse into the heart and mind of a monster; but more than this, it illustrates the power of memory and truthtelling to mend. “Tiger, Tiger will start a thousand conversations. Margaux Fragoso achieves the unthinkable with empathic clarity: she humanizes a pedophile. In doing so, she makes his crime unimaginably more frightening. Her portrayal of their relationship is shocking, revelatory and fearless. As the story of a victim, it is gripping; as a work of literature, it’s a triumph.” alice sebold, author of The Lovely Bones margaux fragoso recently completed a PhD in English and creative writing at Binghamton University in New York. Her short stories and poems have appeared in Literary Review and Barrow Street, among other literary journals. She lives near New Orleans.

Something Fierce Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter carmen aguirre

A gripping, darkly comic memoir of a young underground revolutionary during the Pinochet dictatorship in 1980s Chile On September 11, 1973, a violent coup removed Salvador Allende, the democratically elected socialist president of Chile, from office. Thousands were arrested, tortured and killed under General Augusto Pinochet’s repressive new regime. Soon after the coup, six-year-old Carmen Aguirre and her younger sister fled the country with their parents for Canada and a life in exile. In 1978, the Chilean resistance issued a call for exiled activists to return to Latin America. Most women sent their children to live with relatives or with supporters in Cuba, but Carmen’s mother kept her precious girls with her. As their mother and stepfather set up a safe house for resistance members in La Paz, Bolivia, the girls’ own double lives began. At eighteen, Carmen herself joined the resistance. With conventional day jobs as a cover, she and her new husband moved to Argentina to begin a dangerous new life of their own. This dramatic, darkly funny narrative, which covers the eventful decade from 1979 to 1989, takes the reader inside war-ridden Peru, dictatorship-run Bolivia, post-Malvinas Argentina and Pinochet’s Chile. Writing with passion and deep personal insight, Aguirre captures her constant struggle to reconcile her commitment to the movement with the desires of her youth and her budding sexuality. Something Fierce is a gripping story of love, war and resismemoir · politics

tance and a rare first-hand account of revolutionary life.

The Colour of My Dreams Surrealism and Revolution in Art daw n a d es

A beautiful, panoptic companion to the most comprehensive Surrealist exhibition ever organized in Canada Since its origins in the 1920s, Surrealism has incited provocative ideas among the 20th century’s greatest artists. This summer, an ambitious exhibition by the Vancouver Art Gallery will trace the development of the movement and its bold and inventive works. The Colour of My Dreams is a thematic history of the Surrealist movement, addressing the work of its major artists, including Hans Bellmer, André Breton, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Man Ray, André Masson, Lee Miller, Joan Miró and Yves Tanguy, and its diverse mediums: painting, sculpture, collage, drawing, box construction, film and photography. This sumptuously illustrated book features a major essay by acclaimed Surrealist art scholar and guest curator Dawn Ades, and contributions by other leading scholars in North America and Europe. The Colour of My Dreams also includes an examination of the complex relationship between the Surrealists and the art of the Northwest Coast, which was enthusiastically studied and collected by Surrealist artists such as Breton, Ernst, Robert Lebel, Wolfgang Paalen and Kurt Seligmann and which proved to be a powerful influence in the evolution of Surrealist imagery.

The inspiring story—with over 65,000 copies sold—of Canada’s best-loved hero, now with a new introduction and updated design In 1973, Rick Hansen was a carefree teenager hitchhiking home from a fishing trip, a kid who lived and breathed sports. But after the truck he was riding in went out of control and crashed, Hansen was left a paraplegic. For some people that could have been the end. For Rick Hansen it was the beginning of a story that is at once sad and funny, heartbreaking and inspirational.

It is the story of the Man in Motion tour—Rick Hansen’s incredible 24,901.55-mile wheelchair journey through 34 countries around the world. It is also the love story of Hansen and his wife, Amanda, a physiotherapist whom Hansen calls his “lifeline.” And it is a success story—Rick Hansen has raised millions of dollars for spinal cord research, rehabilitation and wheelchair sports as well as raised awareness about the disabled. rick hansen is currently president and ceo of the Rick Hansen Foundation, which has generated more than $200 million for spinal cord injury–related programs and initiatives.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of BC Hydro, the untold story of the vision that now powers a province early in the 1960s, Premier W.A.C. Bennett created BC Hydro to implement his “Two Rivers Policy” of harnessing the tremendous energy of the Peace and Columbia rivers to generate electricity.

The projects were engineering feats that involved tens of thousands of people and touched the lives of many more British Columbians with tremendous benefits as well as abundant challenges.

In the early 1860s, Italians began trickling into British Columbia via San Francisco. Fleeing grinding poverty back home, they came north to the isolated valleys and cities of the province to pan for gold, raise cattle, dig coal, fell timber, build railroads, smelt copper and refine lead, or to start small businesses. B.C. welcomed them grudgingly. Recounting the stories of individual immigrants, celebrated author Lynne Bowen has crafted a loosely chronological narrative of the Italian settlement of B.C. It’s a story rife with discrimination and tragedy, with families torn apart when their men left Italy for more promising futures, but always there is a rich sense of community and a sense of pride.

whoever gives us bread

Here we meet Joseph Fontana, who incensed his fellow striking miners when he crossed their picket line near Ladysmith. We meet Sabina Teti, who ran a boarding house in Vancouver’s Italian district of Strathcona. We hear stories of the 53 Italians who were rounded up from B.C. and shipped off to Kananaskis internment camp for fear that they would form a fifth column in support of Mussolini. Through these stories, Bowen also reveals the Canadian labour, immigration and multiculturalism issues of the time. Today, the B.C. Italian community is Canada’s oldest by 50 years. Bowen

Whoever Gives Us Bread will appeal to the large Italian population in B.C. and across Canada as well as to readers of social history. lynne bowen is the author of five books of Western Canadian history: Robert Dunsmuir, Those Lake People, Muddling Through, Three Dollar Dreams and Boss Whistle.

A Story as Sharp as a Knife The Classical Haida Mythtellers and Their World robert bringhurst

A seminal collection of Haida oral literature; now in a gorgeous new package

“Bringhurst’s achievement is gigantic, as well as heroic. It’s one of those works that rearranges the inside of your head—a profound meditation on the nature of oral poetry and myth, and on the habits of thought and feeling that inform them.”  margaret atwood

a knife and their world

The linguist and ethnographer John Swanton took dictation from the last great Haida-speaking storytellers, poets and historians from the fall of 1900 through the summer of 1901. Together they created a great treasury of Haida oral literature in written form. Having worked for many years with these century-old manuscripts, linguist and poet Robert Bringhurst brings both rigorous scholarship and a literary voice to the English translation of John Swanton’s careful work. He sets the stories in a rich context that reaches out to dozens of native oral literatures and to mythtelling traditions around the globe. Attractively redesigned, this collection of First Nations oral literature is an

Vancouver Sun praised as “breathtakingly original and shockingly powerful.” “No other writer gets the heat, the chaos, the shimmering otherness of the East quite like Penticton’s Adam Lewis Schroeder.

Bing Thom Works bing thom

A revealing look at the holistic, community-centred philosophy

Bing Thom Works

behind Bing Thom’s internationally acclaimed architecture Forgotten spaces, declining malls and sterilized neighborhoods seem like odd places to find inspiration. But it is these awkward places that have driven much of the work of Bing Thom Architects. This highly visual book outlines the recent work and thoughts of Bing Thom Architects (bta), recently awarded Firm of the Year by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. The book opens with a particular focus on bta’s most recent project, the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. It takes the reader through the creative process, featuring detailed descriptions and illustrations of this beloved regional theatre’s transformation into what will be the second-largest performing arts centre in Washington. Architects, urban planners and even those in the theatre community will all appreciate Bing Thom Works for its informal essays about how the firm approaches each of its projects as both a philosophical and a practical process. The essays are followed by seven well-illustrated examples of recent bta projects, ranging from an intimate single-family dwelling to a large-scale urban intervention, that have changed their communities. bing thom was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Vancouver as a child. He studied architecture at the University of British Columbia and the University of California, Berkeley. Early in his career he worked with Arthur Erickson, where he oversaw projects such as the Robson Square courthouse

complex in Vancouver and Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. In the early 1980s he established Bing Thom Architects, and this firm quickly developed a reputation for innovative design on a wide range of projects. Thom is a Member of the Order of Canada and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. He lives in Vancouver.

The Good Soldiers

David Finkel has been a staff writer for The Washington Post since 1990 and has worked for the paper’s national, foreign, and magazine teams. He has reported from Africa, Asia, Central America, Europe, and throughout the United States and was part of the Post’s war coverage in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo. Finkel won the Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for a series of stories about U.S.-funded democracy efforts in Yemen and has been a Pulitzer finalist three other times. Finkel lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, with his wife and two daughters.

It was the last-chance moment of the war. In January 2007 President George W. Bush announced a new strategy for Iraq. He called it the surge. “Many listening tonight will ask why this effort will succeed when previous operations to secure Baghdad did not. Well, here are the differences,” he told a skeptical nation. Among those listening were the young, optimistic army infantry soldiers of the 2-16, the battalion nicknamed the Rangers. About to head to a vicious area of Baghdad, they decided the difference would be them. Fifteen months later, the soldiers returned home forever changed. Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post reporter David Finkel was with them in Baghdad, almost every grueling step of the way. What was the true story of the surge? And was it really a success? Those are the questions Finkel grapples with in his remarkable report from the front lines. Combining the action of Mark Bowden’s Black Hawk Down with the literary brio of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, The Good Soldiers is an unforgettable work of reportage. And in telling the stories of these good soldiers, the heroes and the ruined, Finkel has also produced an eternal tale—not just of the Iraq War but of all wars, for all time.

advance praise for frank mckenna: beyond politics “Harvey Sawler ably recounts Frank McKenna’s remarkable career, including his decade as premier of New Brunswick and his posting as Canadian ambassador to the United States. It is a portrait of an extremely able, intelligent, dedicated public servant and private citizen. Frank McKenna is an old fashioned man with modern ideas. I’ve been in public events with Frank all across Canada and seen the respect and affection Canadians have for him. This book will tell you why.”

mckenna

frank mckenna: beyond politics is a compelling and surprising portrait of one of Canada’s most intriguing and highly respected politicians and business leaders, and is a must-read for anyone who wants to unravel the mystery of the only man in Canadian history to have had the prime minister’s office within his grasp, only to turn away from it— not once, but twice. With unfettered access to McKenna himself, biographer Harvey Sawler examines McKenna’s life—from rural New Brunswick poor boy to student leader, from news-making criminal lawyer to tireless political campaigner, and from a premier who swept every seat as he strode into power to, most recently, a diplomat, corporate dynamo and much-sought orator. Sawler pays particular attention to McKenna’s eventful post-premier life, most especially his brief but dramatic stint as Canada’s ambassador to the United States. Throughout McKenna’s life in the public eye, he has swept along a legion of watchers, admirers of his plainspoken common sense, singular brand of leadership that transcended partisanship, and innate balance of business instinct with social consciousness. It was with no small measure of disappointment that supporters accepted his decision to step away from the political arena. Sawler explores that decision and the extraordinary subsequent chapter as events unfold that could have occurred only when McKenna left behind the brightly lit political arena. At least for now. With insights from former prime ministers, premiers, ambassadors, diplomats, family and friends, Frank McKenna is a fascinating, inspiring look at perhaps the best prime minister Canada never had.

nervous style that captures the emotion page after page.” le devoir

Christina, Brenda, Laura, Ellen, Sue and Becky, six beautiful and cultured middle-aged women who have come to the sun-drenched island of Haiti in search of something new. No longer desired by the men from their northern homes, they are drawn to the steamy climate and beautiful adolescent bodies of this Caribbean island, hoping that both will keep them eternally young. But their dreams and fantasies blind them to the harsh reality that these boys live under a brutal dictatorship. Still, the women are ready to sacrifice everything: the flesh but also the hearts of these Haitian boys. Can desire be purchased? Who wins, and who loses in this transaction? And who really holds power when desire is the force driving all human history? Made into an award-winning film starring Charlotte Rampling, this provocative novel takes us into the world of artists, rappers, Voodoo priests, hotel owners, uptight Parisian journalists and partner-swapping Haitian lovers, all desperately trying to balance their own happiness with the need to survive. It explores the lines between sexual liberation and exploitation, artistic freedom and appropriation, independence and colonialism, and displays the wild talent of an author at the height of his powers.
