A

fiction by andré alexis

de pa r t m e n t of n a r r at i v e s t u du e s no. 9 A is a work of fiction in which André Alexis presents the compelling narrative of Alexander Baddeley, a Toronto book reviewer obsessed with the work of the elusive and mythical poet Avery Andrews. Baddeley is in awe with Andrews’s ability as a poet – more than anything he wants to understand the inspiration behind his work – so much so that, following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims throughout literary history, Baddeley actually tracks Andrews down thinking that meeting his literary hero will provide some answers. Their meeting results in a meditation and a revelation about the creative act itself that generates more and more questions about what it means to be “inspired.” Alexis further develops this narrative through a reflection in essay form presented as an annex that builds layers of thought upon not only the original narrative, but provides Alexis’s own motives (and perhaps, obsessions) behind writing A. PR A I S E F OR a n dr é a l e x i s: “André Alexis is a genuine talent.” – Richard Bachmann, A Different Drummer Books “Alexis [has an] astute understanding of the madly shimmering, beautifully weaving patterns created by what we have agreed to call memory.” – Ottawa Citizen

An d r é Al e x i s

“Although Canada boasts many promising young writers, the most promising of all may be André Alexis. . . .” – London Free Press “Alexis already knows what it takes many grey wise men a lifetime to realize: that neither memory nor history is a straight line.” – Edmonton Journal a n dr é a l e x i s is the author of two novels (Childhood and Asylum), two books of short stories (Despair and Other Stories of Ottawa and Beauty and Sadness), a children’s book (Ingrid and the Wolf ) and a number of plays (Lambton Kent, Name in Vain, Fidelity). He was a contributing book reviewer for the Globe and Mail. And he has worked extensively in radio, having been the host/writer of CBC Radio One’s “Radio Nomad” and CBC Radio Two’s “Skylarking.”

i d on ’ t k now how to be h av e fiction by michael blouin

de pa r t m e n t of n a r r at i v e s t u du e s no. 10 I Don’t Know How To Behave combines the true story of Canadian daredevil and stunt driver Ken Carter (1938-1983) with imagined biographical elements from the lives of Canadian film director Bruce McDonald and Canadian poet Gillian Sze. Along the way, this quintessential Canadian story crashes head first into many related things, from screenplay theory to hip hop history to the story of early Canadian film to drawings to photographs to bank robberies to chaos theory to technical specs for Detroit muscle cars to re-imagined movies to imagined documentary to advertisements to newspaper interviews to instructions for making molotov cocktails to Evel Kneivel to Steve McQueen’s Bullitt to self-help tomes to “Rappers Delight” to online instructions for how to publish a book, such as the one you are about to read called I Don’t Know How To Behave by Michael Blouin.

non-f ic t ion by s ta n dr ag l a n d Employing a sort of leaping or mosaic structure and incorporating e-mails re penis-enlargement, questionable limericks, jokes, graffiti and a photo of a “penis latte,” along with personal anecdotes and probes of books and films, Deep Too is a book of non-fiction stories. It is a funny and sometimes biting book about the phenomenon of male strut and competition. Thinking with feeling, the author posits an expansive masculinity that rises above stereotype, traditional roles and the either/or choices they so often involve. Pr a i s e f or S t a n dr ag l a n d: on Journeys Through Bookland and Other Passages Those familiar with Stan Dragland’s work recognize an author who works in protean literary forms. . . . In this new book Stan Dragland reveals a different side of growing up. Journeys Through Bookland is about how we educate ourselves and the influences that guide us – fairy tales, individual teachers, family life, dreams and nightmares. Stan Dragland is at his most moving in this book. He makes fiction out of all these sources, so that by the end an individual and a true voice emerge. – M ic h a e l On da at j e on Stormy Weather: Foursomes This book is like a fine old song that overflows with tenderness and hardwon wisdom. A true and perfect companion for every weather. – E l i z a be t h H a y

Deep To o Stan Dragland

on The Drowned Lands Dragland has Cormac McCarthy’s gentle humour and affinity for magnificent landscapes, and, like Virginia Woolf, an ability to pierce the most intimate thoughts of his characters. Here is emotion as fast-flickering and dazzling as sunlight on water. The Drowned Lands is a deeply affecting story, beautifully told. – L i s a Mo or e

S ta n Dr ag l a n d is originally from Alberta and now lives in St. John’s,

Newfoundland. He was educated at The University of Alberta and Queen’s University and is Professor Emeritus, Department of English, The University of Western Ontario. He was founder of Brick magazine and Brick Books, and is still active with the latter. Among his books are Wilson MacDonald’s Western Tour (critical collage), Peckertracks (novel), Journeys Through Bookland and Other Passages (fiction and non-fiction), The Bees of the Invisible: Essays in English Canadian Writing, Floating Voice: Duncan Campbell Scott and the Literature of Treaty 9 (criticism), Apocrypha: Further Journeys (non-fiction), Stormy Weather: Foursomes (prose poems) and The Drowned Lands (novel). 5

p oe t r y by ron si l l i m a n Revelator is the opening poem in a major sequence entitled Universe. It’s the jumping off point for a work that, were Ron Silliman to live long enough, would take him three centuries to complete. We are hopeful. Universe is a poem of globalization and post-global poetics (which Silliman feels is an important reason for publishing this key section outside of the U S A ). At its core, it addresses the problem that there are only two global systems: the biosphere and capital, while every response to these global systems is invariably local. The first appearance of Revelator in a journal won Poetry’s Levinson prize, previously given to poets such as Robert Creeley, Theodore Roethke, Geoffrey Hill, John Ashbery, Robert Duncan, Basil Bunting, William Carlos Williams, Dylan Thomas, Hart Crane, Robert Frost, and Wallace Stevens. Pr a i s e f or R on S i l l i m a n: Called a ‘thaumaturge’ (‘wonder-worker’) by the poet Robert Duncan, Silliman has created a new kind of writing from the simplest materials.... The poet confides, describes, extols, remarks, puns, paints domestic scenes, slyly alludes, records minutiae, leaps to large statements, arouses, repeats. Through it all, a friendly, Northern California sort of personality emerges. – Dav i d M e l n ic k , S a n F r a nc i s c o C h r on ic l e

Re vel ator Ron Sillim an

What I find most striking about Silliman’s sentences is that they’re fun; they give pleasure in many different ways, through their wit, their allusiveness, their visuality, their phonetic texture, their descriptive precision, or their sheer unlikeliness. – R o g e r G i l be r t, C on t e m p or a r y L i t e r at u r e Of all the Language Poets, Silliman’s express-line writing was and is the one that stuck to my ribs. It was so thingy, so specific, so formally radical, so hardheaded, yet witty, and now and then, in spite of itself, lyric. I liked his postindustrial music. I loved Ketjak and Tjanting and Paradise... And the reach – the compulsion to pull everything in. – C .D. W r ig h t, J ac k e t r on s i l l i m a n has written and edited over 30 books, and had his poetry and criticism translated into 12 languages. He has worked as a political activist, editor, and market analyst. Among his honors, Silliman was a 2012 Kelly Writers House Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, and the 2010 recipient of the Levinson Prize, from the Poetry Foundation. His sculpture Poetry (Bury Neon) is permanently on display in the transit center of Bury, Lancashire, and he has a plaque in the walk dedicated to poetry in his home town of Berkeley, although he now lives in Chester County, Pensylvania. 6

t h e cou n t i ng house

p oe t r y by s a n dr a r i dl e y

Akin to a bookkeeper’s accounting of what’s given and taken in a fraught, uncertain exchange, The Counting House goes on to record the pageantry and pedantry of courtly affection gone awry. Symbols and origins of traditional rhymes involving kings and queens serve as inventory, alongside elements of Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish and Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex. In forensic sequences of inquisition, scrutiny, and reckoning, Ridley reveals the maiden as muse as modern darling – unhoused and exacting – in “all of her violet forms.” Pr a i s e f or t h e c ou n t i ng hou s e : Sandra Ridley has revealed our closest contradictions in poems where harm is exhausted in both pleasure and pain. These poems find a blackbird baked into a pie, and our own drooling expectation of dessert, the edible object, is replaced by the excitement of the bird that escapes it, somehow alive. We revel in the spectre of the creature’s death and resurrection. How close we are to pain and destruction here, but Ridley surprises us with life that stubbornly and lovingly continues. In language that soothes and bites word by word, The Counting House is a book that lives fiercely in the complex in-between of love and punishment, pleasure and pain, coo and cry. – j e n n y s a m pi r i s i s a n dr a r i dl e y ’s first full-length collection of poetry, Fallout, won the 2010 Saskatchewan Book Award for Publishing, the Alfred G. Bailey Prize, and was a finalist for the Ottawa Book Award. Her second book, Post-Apothecary, was short-listed for the 2012 ReLit and Archibald Lampman Awards. Also in 2012, Ridley won the International Festival Of Authors’ Battle of the Bards and was featured in The University of Toronto’s Influency Salon. Twice a finalist for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry, Ridley is the author of two chapbooks, Rest Cure – and Lift, for which she was co-recipient of the bpNichol Chapbook Award. s e p t e m be r 2 013 2 0.0 0 96 pag e s 6 x 8 i nc h e s t r a de pa pe r b ac k i s bn 978192704 0843 E P U B: i s bn 978192704 0 94 2 7

p oe t r y by j u l i e jo os t e n Moving from the Enlightenment science of natural history to the contemporary science of global warming, Light Light is a provocative engagement with the technologies and languages that shape discourses of knowing. It bridges the histories of botany, empire, and mind to take up the claim of “objectivity” as the dissolution of a discrete self and thus explores the mind’s movement toward and with the world. The poems in Light Light range from the epigrammatic to the experimental, from the narrative to the lyric, consistently exploring the way language captures the undulation of a mind’s working, how that rhythm becomes the embodiment of thought, and how that embodiment forms a politics engaged with the environment and its increasing alterations.

Light Light Light Light Julie Joosten

pr a i s e f or j u l i e jo o s t e n: Light Light puts the hive back in the archive, the source in the resource. Through Joosten’s miraculous mode of attending, through this mind that “grounds sound to seed,” we are elemented – “The mind is a mood of electricity, warmth, water, and wind.” We are given a mode of attending that is precarious, is an enactment of the precariousness we are and, with consequence, institute. Each thing this attention falls upon “is a source of thought, not its object.” So everything is light once we learn to see by it. To honor the field we should “leave the field,” but this book we should never leave. – J a n e G r e g or y

Julie Joosten

j u l i e jo o s t e n lives in Toronto. Her poems and reviews can be read in Jacket 2, Tarpaulin Sky, the Malahat Review, and The Fiddlehead. Light Light is her first book.

Life Experience Coolant is a collection of four long poems informed by artistic isolation, directionless reading, and the avoidance of any mechanisms that make poetry simultaneously possible and impossible in our current cultural millieu. Using methodologies of textual appropriation, collage, rehistoricization and selfsufficent rhetoricality, Life Experience Coolant address transgenderedness, the late-late-late capitalist situation, gaming culture and new media, contemporary Canadian politics, and satirizations of conceptual poetics and antimemoir. As well as love. c ol i n f u lt on was born in Calgary in 1987 but grew up in Nova Scotia. More recently he spent time in British Columbia while studying at the University of Victoria where he graduated with a double major in Poetry and Political Ecology, as well as a minor in Philosophy, Fulton currently lives in Montreal where he is persuing a Master’s Degree in English.

p oe t r y by dav i d b. g ol ds t e i n Laws of Rest invents a new form, the prose sonnet – an intricate chamber of text enclosed within four quatrains of right-justified prose. In their box-like aesthetics, the poems conjure the weird, meticulous worlds of Joseph Cornell or Edmund Spenser. But anything can happen in these little rooms, in which the overheard conversation of taxi drivers, invented verses of Virgil, found text about Middle-Eastern geopolitics, and the music of extinct butterflies merge into unpredictable collage. Presiding over all is the gender-bending character Lucy, the subject of a failed love affair conducted in convenience stores and equestrian centers. The book ends with a series of poems a friend who died young, bringing to elegaic focus the poems’ quest to understand the laws of rest (a phrase taken from the Jewish laws of Sabbath observance): the stillness of loss, the mute repose at the end of speaking.
