The Dipshit Trilogy

by Georgian Dumpling

  1. Filthy Business
  2. It's a Wonderful World
  3. The Frumious Bandersnatch

In this ground-breaking trilogy, Georgian Dumpling sounds the depths of things with which he has a vague familiarity -- magic, history, and the Canadian psyche.

"Georgian Dumpling is without doubt one of the most important Twentieth-Century Mid-Victorian novelists this country has ever produced." --Margaret Atwood.

The Collected Country and Western Lyrics of Leonard Cohen

Canada's most famous guitar-pickin' Montreal Hebrew brings his own special, morose flavour to the morbid Country and Western song tradition. Features such past hits as "Nerd on a Wire" and "Passing Glue (The Constipated Cowboy Song)". Also includes lyrics from the forthcoming Leonard Cohen Kosher Christmas Album, with songs like:

I saw Santa naked,
Standing by the fire.
He was filling my Christmas stocking,
And I was filling with desire...

"The very best of one of Canada's most distinguished, manic-depressive creeps." --Margaret Atwood.

The Stone Bagel

by Margaret Lawrence and Mordecai Richler

In this recently-discovered, co-written Canadian classic, two of Canada's most intensely generic writers combine powers and genres to tell the story of Duddy Kravitz and the crisis in Presbyterian consciousness he occasions when he opens his bagel shop in Mugwump, Manitoba...

"Fated to be one of the most re-readable unreadable novels this country has ever produced." --Margaret Atwood.

The Rodent

by Marian Engel

In which a woman has a mystic sexual affair with a Richardson ground squirrel.

"Like Jaws, with a sexual bite." --Margaret Atwood.

Natural Depressions

by Matt Cohen

Bob and Natalie and Ted and Alice spend an intense weekend together at a cabin on a lake in northern Ontario. Tensions rise when Bob sleeps with Alice. They mount when Ted, in vengeance, sleeps with Natalie. Things get more complicated when Natalie sleeps with Alice; and they rise to a fever pitch when Bob sleeps with Ted.

"Matt Cohen is one of the most deeply generic Canadian writers presently writing in the Canadian genre." --Margaret Atwood.

Who Has Passed the Wind?

by W.O. Mitchell

A scurrilous look at the effects of bad diet on a small Saskatchewan town.

"Probably the most sulphurous Canadian prose stylist of our era." --Margaret Atwood.

Resurfacing

by Margaret Atwood

In which the people who suffered such intense identity crises at a cabin on a northern Ontario lake twenty years ago find fulfillment and steady jobs working for the MacMillan Blodel Interminable Canadian Classics Library in Toronto.

"This is a novel that redefines the meaning of the term "survival" in the Canadian cultural context."--Margaret Atwood.
