By Peter Goddard. 2017
Considered one of the most influential musicians and cultural figures of his time, Glenn Gould remains a fascinating figure. In… the first book to be published in co-operation with Gould's estate, Peter Goddard draws on Gould's unpublished writings, interviews, and never-before-seen photographs to present a startling new portrait of Gould, the man and the musician. Presents a deep and nuanced study of Gould's life with unmatched candour and clarity. Inside is a love letter Gould wrote but never sent (he later revised it again and again); the text of a speech that Gould gave to a group of children about life and childhood; and portions of Glenn Gould: hysteric return, a never-before-seen radio script in which Gould imagines his return to the concert stage and all it would have entailed. 2017.

By Jeff Latosik. 2018
A hopeful, timely new collection of poems that take up our ever-evolving relationship with technology. Starting from an urge to… reconcile the human need for stability with what's happening in a constantly fluid "now," "Dreampad", Trillium Book Award for Poetry winner poet Jeff Latosik's startling new collection, ponders whether an ideal for living is viable when we're not sure we can say yes or no to anything in a human world that's growing increasingly ephemeral and entangled with the virtual. These poems, however, are a salvo--or "protest" in the most useful sense of that word--a reminder we might already own a verbal architecture to express the difficulty of being alive in a world that can, could, and might still even be humane, loving, habitable. 2018.
