The Audacity To Win by David Plouffe : INR1081 ISBN: 9780143118084

The inside story of a brilliant campaign, with lessons on how the Democrats can secure victory in the future. Since David Plouffe helped design the plan that brought candidate Obama to the White House, the lessons of that plan have become only more relevant. Today, conservative forces led by figures like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck threaten to derail the tremendous promise of Democrats'' recent gains, making the next election—and the ones beyond it—even more crucial. Plouffe explains the secrets to winning elections in contemporary politics, and shows how Democrats can build on the historic campaign of 2008 to keep the country on the right path. Featuring a new chapter on the challenges of 2010, The Audacity to Win is political writing at its boldest and most essential.

The Mind Club by Daniel M. Wegner : INR1161 ISBN: 9780143110026

“Compelling, and so beautifully written…’The Mind Club’ deftly brings the most up-to-date research about other minds to readers of all backgrounds. It may cause you to think differently about crime and punishment, about business transactions and health care, and even about the upcoming elections. Things might just start looking up.”–The Wall Street JournalFrom dogs to gods, the science of understanding mysterious minds—including your own.   Nothing seems more real than the minds of other people. When you consider what your boss is thinking or whether your spouse is happy, you are admitting them into the mind club. It’s easy to assume other humans can think and feel, but what about a cow, a computer, a corporation? What kinds of mind do they have? Daniel M. Wegner and Kurt Gray are award-winning psychologists who have discovered that minds—while incredibly important—are a matter of perception. Their research opens a trove of new findings, with insights into human behavior that are fascinating, frightening and funny.        The Mind Club explains why we love some animals and eat others, why people debate the existence of God so intensely, how good people can be so cruel, and why robots make such poor lovers.  By investigating the mind perception of extraordinary targets—animals, machines, comatose people, god—Wegner and Gray explain what it means to have a mind, and why it matters so much.          Fusing cutting-edge research and personal anecdotes, The Mind Club explores the moral dimensions of mind perception with wit and compassion, revealing the surprisingly simple basis for what compels us to love and hate, to harm and to protect.

Resistance Is Futile! by Ann Coulter : INR1337 ISBN: 9780525540076

Since the day Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign, the left has waged a demented war against him.  Liberals used to pride themselves on their ultra-hipness, but Trump has turned them into weeping little girls in pink party dresses. The very people who once mocked right-wingers for (allegedly) overreacting to every little thing are now the ones hyperventilating and hatching insane conspiracy theories.During the campaign, and even more so after his victory, the left went nuts. Everything Trump does sends them into a moral panic. Everything is a constitutional crisis.Members of the self-proclaimed Resistance -- journalists, politicians, professors, judges, comedians, movie stars, Twitter pundits, even Oprah and Lindsey Vonn! -- are literally shaking because Trump is literally Hitler!Now Ann Coulter skewers the various elements of The Resistance -- the pussy-hat brigade, the Russian-collusion witch hunters, the media alarmists, the campus hysterics, and more. They talk about Russia? They''re the ones meddling with our democracy by trying to overturn the results of the election with their relentless attacks.The biggest result of the Trump era may be our cultural institutions'' total loss of credibility.

Proofiness by Charles Seife : INR897 ISBN: 9780143120070

From the author of Zero, comes this "admirable salvo against quantitative bamboozlement by the media and the government" (The Boston Globe) In Zero, Charles Seife presented readers with a thrilling account of the strangest number known to humankind. Now he shows readers how the power of skewed metrics-or "proofiness"- is being used to alter perception in both amusing and dangerous ways. Proofiness is behind such bizarre stories as a mathematical formula for the perfect butt and sprinters who can run faster than the speed of sound. But proofiness also has a dark side: bogus mathematical formulas used to undermine our democracy-subverting our justice system, fixing elections, and swaying public opinion with lies. By doing the real math, Seife elegantly and good-humoredly scrutinizes our growing obsession with metrics while exposing those who misuse them.

Devil's Bargain by Joshua Green : INR846 ISBN: 9780735225046

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller, now with an explosive new preface.From the reporter who was there at the very beginning comes the revealing inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump—the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right, the fall of Hillary Clinton, and the hidden forces that drove the greatest upset in American political history. Based on dozens of interviews conducted over six years, Green spins the master narrative of the 2016 campaign from its origins in the far fringes of right-wing politics and reality television to its culmination inside Trump’s penthouse on election night. The shocking elevation of Bannon to head Trump’s flagging presidential campaign on August 17, 2016, hit political Washington like a thunderclap and seemed to signal the meltdown of the Republican Party. Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist who’d never run a campaign and was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike.  Yet Bannon’s hard-edged ethno-nationalism and his elaborate, years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton paved the way for Trump’s unlikely victory. Trump became the avatar of a dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to voters whom others couldn’t see. Trump’s campaign was the final phase of a populist insurgency that had been building up in America for years, and Bannon, its inscrutable mastermind, believed it was the culmination of a hard-right global uprising that would change the world. Any study of Trump’s rise to the presidency is unavoidably a study of Bannon. Devil’s Bargain is a tour-de-force telling of the remarkable confluence of circumstances that decided the election, many of them orchestrated by Bannon and his allies, who really did plot a vast, right-wing conspiracy to stop Clinton. To understand Trump''s extraordinary rise and Clinton’s fall, you have to weave Trump’s story together with Bannon’s, or else it doesn''t make sense.

Zero Hour by Harry S. Dent : INR1684 ISBN: 9780525536055

Harry S. Dent Jr., bestselling author of The Demographic Cliff and The Sale of a Lifetime, predicted the populist wave that has driven the Brexit vote, the election of Donald Trump, and other recent shocks around the world. Now he returns with the definitive guide to protect your investments and prosper in the age of the anti-globalist backlash.The turn of the 2020s will mark an extremely rare convergence of low points for multiple political, economic, and demographic cycles. The result will be a major financial crash and global upheaval that will dwarf the Great Recession of the 2000s—and maybe even the Great Depression of the 1930s. We’re facing the onset of what Dent calls “Economic Winter.”   In Zero Hour, he and Andrew Pancholi (author of The Market Timing Report newsletter) explain all of these cycles, which influence everything from currency valuations to election returns, from economic growth rates in Asia to birthrates in Europe. You’ll learn, for instance:   • Why the most-hyped technologies of recent years (self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain) won’t pay off until the 2030s.    • Why China may be the biggest bubble in the global economy (and you’d be a fool to invest there).    • Why you should invest in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, and pull out of real estate and automotive.    • Why putting your faith in gold is a bad idea.   Fortunately, Zero Hour includes a range of practical strategies to help you turn the upheaval ahead to your advantage, so your family can be prepared and protected.

The History Of Canada Series by Chris Pennington : INR1038 ISBN: 9780143052821

Everyone knew it would be Sir John A. Macdonald’s last campaign. His Conservative Party had dominated Canadian politics since Confederation. His National Policy, which protected Canadian manufacturers from foreign competition, was well established. And there remained widespread affection for the “Old Man.” The Liberal leader, Wilfred Laurier, was new in the job and doubted that a Roman Catholic from Quebec could win votes outside his home province. Still, the Liberals had hope. Macdonald’s decision to hang Louis Riel had split the country, the economy was in the doldrums, and there was growing support for free trade with the United States. Author Christopher Pennington vividly brings to life the 1891 election, one of the most bitterly fought in Canadian history. In this richly textured narrative, Pennington spins an action-packed tale of a country poised to make a momentous choice and of nineteenth-century politics at its most principled and its most corrupt.

Creating Freedom by Raoul Martinez : INR1832 ISBN: 9780670067770

A manifesto for deep and radical change, Creating Freedom explores the limits placed on freedom by human nature and society. It explodes myths at the heart of our economic, political, and criminal justice systems, calling for a profound transformation in the way we think about democracy, equality, and our own identities.     Free markets, free elections, free media, free thought, free speech, free will--the language of freedom pervades our lives, framing the most urgent issues of our time and the deepest questions about who we are and who we want to be. It is a foundational concept at the heart of our civilization, but it has long been distorted to justify its opposite: soaring inequality, the erosion of democracy, an irrational criminal justice system, and a dehumanizing foreign policy. Raoul Martinez argues that the more we understand the limits on our freedom, the better placed we are to transcend them. Drawing together findings and ideas from neuroscience, criminology, psychology, politics, climate science, economics, and philosophy, Creating Freedom constructs a radical framework to make sense of the world and empower us to change it. This is a wide-ranging analysis of power, control, and freedom, which asks us to question our inherited identity, question our society, and turn the power to choose into the freedom to create.

Teardown by Dave Meslin : INR1274 ISBN: 9780143197058

A handbook of democratic solutions in troubled times, from the activist the media call a wizard, a mastermind, the ultimate ideas guy, a mad scientist, a start-up genius.Our democracy is a trainwreck. Our elections feel hollow and our legislatures have become toxic. Fierce partisanship, centralized power, distorted election results and rigged systems all contribute to our growing cynicism. Voters are increasingly turning towards the angriest candidates, or simply tuning out completely and staying at home. But as Dave Meslin''s career has shown, we can fix things. We can turn elite power structures upside down. We can give a voice to ordinary people. But it means fixing things from the bottom up, and starting locally. It''s hard to change the world if you can''t change a municipal by-law. Teardown shows readers how to do both. And it will show us that these two challenges are not fundamentally different. From environmental activism to public space advocacy to the ongoing campaign for electoral reform, Dave Meslin has been both out on the street in marches and in the back rooms drawing up policy. With Teardown he reminds us that the future of our species doesn''t need to look like a train wreck. That we''re capable of so much more. It''s time to raise our expectations: of the system, of each other and of ourselves. Only then can we re-imagine a new democracy, unrecognizable from today''s political mess. This book is a recipe for change. A cure for cynicism. A war on apathy.

Party Of One by Michael Harris : INR1057 ISBN: 9780143187059

In time for the federal election that promises to be a referendum on Stephen Harper''s tenure, Party of One is a scathing look at the majority government of a prime minister determined to remake Canada.     In Party of One, investigative journalist Michael Harris closely examines the majority government of a prime minister essentially unchecked by the opposition and empowered by the general election victory of May 2011. Harris looks at Stephen Harper''s policies, instincts, and the often breathtaking gap between his stated political principles and his practices.     He argues that Harper is more than a master of controlling information; he is a profoundly anti-democratic figure. In the F-35 debacle, the government''s sin wasn''t only in keeping the facts from Canadians, it was in inventing them. He illustrates how Harper has made war on every independent source of information in Canada since coming to power. Here is a man with a well-defined and growing list of enemies: union members, scientists, diplomats, environmentalists, First Nations peoples, and journalists.     With the Conservative majority in Parliament, the law is simple: What one man, the PM, says, goes.— NPR Best Books of 2016: Staff Picks, Biography & Memoir, For Music Lovers, Funny Stuff, Nonfiction Categories— Esquire 25 Best Books of 2016— Goodreads Choice Award semi-finalist

Chronic Condition by Jeffrey Simpson : INR972 ISBN: 9780143181002

Medicare is the third rail of Canadian politics. Touch it and you die. Every politician knows this truism, which is why no one wants to debate it. Privately, many of them understand that the health-care system, which costs about $200 billion a year in public and private money, cannot continue as it is—increasingly ill-adapted to an aging popula­tion with public costs growing faster than government revenues. In Chronic Condition, Jeffrey Simpson explores the options we have to grapple with this growing problem, including cuts in non-health-care spending, tax increases, various types of privatization, and finding savings within health care itself. His research takes him to emergency rooms and private clinics across Canada as he listens to health professionals, researchers, and administrators outline the challenges they face. Simpson examines the tenets of the medicare system that Canadians cling to so passionately. Combining impressive research, political acumen, and a sense of civic urgency, Chronic Condition breaks the silence about the huge changes and real choices that Canadians face. It is a catalyst for a much-needed public debate about an essential Canadian service.

The Silent Wife by A. S. A. Harrison : INR874 ISBN: 9780143187042

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Both are at the mercy of their unrelenting wants and needs, and both are unaware that the path they are on is careening toward murder. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event, oblivious of the destiny they are jointly creating, caught in the thrall of disaster unfolding. Chapter by chapter, the narrative evolves from their alternating perspectives. He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose. The alternating voices pitch the reader back and forth between protagonists in conflict who are fighting for self-preservation, both of them making deeply consequential mistakes, behaving in ever more foolhardy ways, losing at the games they’re playing. The Silent Wife is a finely wrought, emotionally charged psychological thriller about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of Gone Girl and These Things Hidden, The Silent Wife ensnares the reader from page one and doesn’t let go.

It can also be as dark, as violent, as rapturous. In the end, there may be no difference between them.A girl grows up in Nunavut in the 1970s. She knows joy, and friendship, and parents'' love. She knows boredom, and listlessness, and bullying. She knows the tedium of the everyday world, and the raw, amoral power of the ice and sky, the seductive energy of the animal world.

And, fairly or unfairly, sons judge fathers when they take to drinking.But Bill Gaston and his father could always fish together.

Learning family secrets his father took to the grave, Gaston comes to understand his own story anew, realizing that the man his younger self had been so eager to judge was in fact someone both nobler and more vulnerable than he had guessed. Warm, insightful, and often funny, Just Let Me Look at You captures every father''s inexpressible tenderness, and the ways in which the words for love often come too late for all of us.

Corporation by Joel Bakan : INR1236 ISBN: 9780140290042

As incisive as Eric Schlosser''s bestselling Fast Food Nation, as rigorous as Joseph E. Stiglitz''s Globalization and Its Discontents, and as scathing as Michael Moore''s Stupid White Men, Joel Bakan''s new book is a brilliantly argued account of the corporation''s pathological pursuit of profit and power. An eminent law professor and legal theorist, Bakan contends that the corporation is created by law to function much like a psychopathic personality whose destructive behavior, if left unchecked, leads to scandal and ruin. In the most revolutionary assessment of the corporation as a legal and economic institution since Peter Drucker''s early works, Bakan backs his premise with the following claims:  • The corporation''s legally defined mandate is to pursue relentlessly and without exception its own economic self-interest, regardless of the harmful consequences it might cause to others—a concept endorsed by no less a luminary than the Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman.  • The corporation''s unbridled self-interest victimizes individuals, society, and, when it goes awry, even shareholders and can cause corporations to self-destruct, as recent Wall Street scandals reveal.  • While corporate social responsibility in some instances does much good, it is often merely a token gesture, serving to mask the corporation''s true character.  • Governments have abdicated much of their control over the corporation, despite its flawed character, by freeing it from legal constraints through deregulation and by granting it ever greater authority over society through privatization. Despite the structural failings found in the corporation, Bakan believes change is possible and outlines a far-reaching program of concrete, pragmatic, and realistic reforms through legal regulation and democratic control. Backed by extensive research, The Corporation draws on in-depth interviews with such wide-ranging figures as CEO Hank McKinnell of Pfizer, Nobel Prize-winner Milton Friedman, business guru Peter Drucker, and critic Noam Chomsky of MIT.

To the north, the history of harsh Gorhaut has been forged with blood and fire, and now a corrupt king and his ruthless advisor seek to conquer the warm, fertile lands of Arbonne. The troubadours and courtiers of the south are soft--or so they appear. But for all their devotion to songs and a passion for beauty, the people of Arbonne will fight when invasion comes from the north.

Winter by Ali Smith : INR1403 ISBN: 9780670070046

What Smith has achieved in her cycle so far is exactly what we need artists to do in disorienting times: make sense of events, console us, show us how we got here, help us believe that we will find our way through. Often, that''s what we lean on the classics for, finding answers in metaphor. But in Winter, as in Autumn, Smith gives us a potent, necessary source of sustenance that speaks directly to our age. - The Boston Globe“There are few writers on the world stage who are producing fiction this offbeat and alluring.” – The New York TimesThe dazzling second novel in Ali Smith''s essential Seasonal Quartet--from the Baileys Prize-winning, Man Booker-shortlisted author of Autumn and How to be bothShortlisted for the 2018 Orwell Prize for Political WritingWinter.

Journeyman by Sean Pronger : INR1128 ISBN: 9780143181026

Anyone who’s gotten to the NHL the hard way has a story to tell. No one understands the game better than the guys on the fourth line who fight for their jobs every night. They know all too well what it’s like to watch from the press box or, worse, to be sent to the minors or traded. Sean Pronger has seen it all. He’s played for legendary coaches such as Pat Burns and gone head to head with Doug Gilmour and Steve Yzerman in the faceoff circle. He was on the ice for perhaps the most notoriously violent attack in recent hockey history. While playing in the minors in Winnipeg, he guzzled beer in an ice-fishing hut with grizzled veterans like John MacLean, and he caused international incidents with Doug Weight while playing in Europe. But none of that went to his head. Full of hilarious stories and self-deprecating jokes, Journeyman is in the end a story not only about achieving a dream, but about realizing you’ve achieved it.

Unaccountable by Kevin Page : INR991 ISBN: 9780143191025

A unique insider''s account of the Harper government so damning that it cannot be ignored.Kevin Page was appointed by the federal Conservatives to be the country''s first parliamentary budget officer in March 2008. The move fulfilled a Tory campaign promise to deliver greater government transparency and accountability. He was later denounced by the same people who had appointed him to scrutinize their spending. When he challenged the government on several issues--most notably about the true costs of the F-35 fighter planes--and publicly claimed the government was misleading Canadians, Page was vilified. Later, he was called unbelievable, unreliable and incredible by then-Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. Page''s term was not extended.      Page''s assessment of the F-35 procurement was proven right, a major embarrassment to the Harper government. But his overriding concern is that Parliament does not get the information and analysis it needs to hold the executive--the prime minister and cabinet--to account. Parliament, he argues, is broken, with power centralized in the PMO. The civil service appears cowed, and members of parliament almost never see enough financial analysis to support the policy decisions they make. That was true of the tough-on-crime legislation and military procurement as well as recent changes to the Canada Health Transfer and Old Age Security.      In this shocking insider''s account, Page argues forcefully that elected officials need accurate, independently verified data to support the implementation of policies and programs. Unaccountable is an urgent call to action for all Canadians.

Ten Billion by Stephen Emmott : INR802 ISBN: 9780143189046

Earth is home to millions of species. Yet just one dominates it. Us. Our cleverness, inventiveness, and activities have modified almost every part of our planet, impacting it profoundly. Indeed, our cleverness, inventiveness, and activities are now the drivers of every global problem we face. And every one of these problems is accelerating as we continue to grow towards a global population of ten billion. This is not a political issue. Or a cultural issue. It’s not about saving whales or rainforests or polar bears. This is an emergency. Written not by an environmentalist but by a world-leading computer scientist, and preaching not to the choir but to everyone with a stake in the future, Ten Billion is devastatingly easy to understand. Stephen Emmott looks at the shocking impact our species has had on the planet and focuses on the near future, as our population approaches the point where using everything from energy, food, and water slams into the limits imposed by reality. Addressing the implications for our everyday lives and the possible solutions we may or may not take comfort in, Ten Billion is a truly shocking assessment of our species’ prospects.

David Cronenberg—the celebrated Canadian film director, lauded by  The New York Times  for creating “some of the best, most challenging, most unusual English-language films of the last twenty years,” and named a chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters in France—turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, disturbing intersection of desire and decay in  Consumed, his highly anticipated debut novel.   In the book-filled, artfully messy Paris apartment of the famous French intellectuals Celestine and Aristide Arosteguy, an astonishing discovery is made—the grisly, butchered remains of Celestine, partially eaten. Her husband, sought by police for questioning, is nowhere to be found.   Naomi Seberg, a young journalist, embarks upon a quest to uncover the truth of Celestine’s death and Aristide’s role in it. She travels to Tokyo to interview the suspected cannibal, while her boyfriend, Nathan Math, a medical journalist, seduces the cancer patient of a controversial Hungarian doctor and contracts a sexually transmitted disease. He traces the famous discoverer of the diseases to Forest Hill Village in Toronto, where he encounters the most interesting journalistic subject of all.   In energetic, inventive, and provocative prose, Cronenberg creates an extraordinary, sexually charged novel of dark impulses and appetites that reminds us that the boundaries of lover and beloved aren’t nearly as defined as we believe them to be.

Angel Dust by Alex Caine : INR530 ISBN: 9780670067084

A follow-up to Alex Caine’s bestselling Befriend and Betray and the third in his trilogy about big biker gangs, Angel Dust focuses on the Hells Angels. The Angels have built an empire, starting from their days as saddle tramps riding Harleys to becoming multi-millionaires driving high-end SUVs. The organization has moved deeper and deeper into legitimate business, particularly in the entertainment industry, real estate, currency exchange, and online gambling and pornography. Though much has been previously written about the Hells Angels, no author to date has had Caine’s combination of experience as an undercover agent and his extensive contacts within gangs and law enforcement. Caine delves into this meteoric ascent and the consequences it has had for the Angels as they transform themselves from outlaw bikers into a new mafia. Using his contacts in domestic and international police forces and Interpol, Caine exposes the inner workings of the club, shows what it’s become, and what is on the gang’s horizon.

How do you find yourself when the world tells you that you don''t exist?Samra Habib has spent most of her life searching for the safety to be herself. As an Ahmadi Muslim growing up in Pakistan, she faced regular threats from Islamic extremists who believed the small, dynamic sect to be blasphemous.

The men in her life wanted to police her, the women in her life had only shown her the example of pious obedience, and her body was a problem to be solved.So begins an exploration of faith, art, love, and queer sexuality, a journey that takes her to the far reaches of the globe to uncover a truth that was within her all along. A triumphant memoir of forgiveness and family, both chosen and not, We Have Always Been Here is a rallying cry for anyone who has ever felt out of place and a testament to the power of fearlessly inhabiting one''s truest self.

Mavericks by Aritha Van Herk : INR1415 ISBN: 9780140286021

The fifth title in our provincial histories series, Mavericks is an idiosyncratic and episodic history of what is arguably Canada''s most unconventional province. From mapmakers to ranchers, Stampede Wrestling to Stockwell Day, acclaimed writer Aritha van Herk brings the drama and combative beauty of this irascible province to stunning life. van Herk''s portrait of her home province embraces all its extremes, from deadly and spectacular weather to dinosaur graveyards, and from oil gushers and geysers to barnstorming social reformers and political haymakers. Bronc-riders of boom and bust, Alberta''s people are a beguiling mixture of opinionated extremists, hardy pioneers and gentle sinners. Alberta is a province that most Canadians simply don''t understand, the province most Canadians love to hate. It is regarded as a land of reckless, redneck and ignorant individualists. But it is also the province where the Famous Five fought the landmark Person''s Case, giving Canadian women the same status as men in the eyes of the law, a province that truly believes in free speech. Albertans tolerate in their midst people whose extreme views on any manner of subjects would make them outcasts elsewhere. And Albertans practice the creed of western neighbourliness, giving assiduously to charity and always lending a hand where help is needed. They are a tough, tender bunch, squinting into the wind of determined difference. If you''re an Albertan, you''ll recognize yourself and your home in this book. If you''re not an Albertan, this book will be an education for you. Mavericks will open your eyes to the real Alberta, as she was and is.

Although the malice that prompted this false engagement notice was aimed at three people only--Solly Bridgetower, Pearl Vambrace, and Gloster Ridley, the anxiety-ridden local newspaper editor--before the leaven of malice had ceased to work, it had changed permanently, for good or ill, the lives of many of Salterton.          This is the second novel in the Salterton Trilogy, which also includes Tempest-Tost and A Mixture of Frailties, and is another brilliant display of Robertson Davies''s legendary wit and erudition.

On Equilibrium by John Ralston Saul : INR894 ISBN: 9780140288032

What does John Ralston Saul''s influential philosophical trilogy Voltaire''s Bastards, The Doubter''s Companion and The Unconscious Civilization mean for the real lives of individuals? Is it possible to apply his groundbreaking theories to everyday life? On Equilibrium presents us with a virtual how toof the ways that ideas can translate into action. Saul explains how our different qualities give us the intelligence, self-confidence and ability to think and act as responsible individuals. Saul argues that when human qualities are worshipped in isolation they become weaknesses, even forces of destruction or self-destruction. In short, they become ideologies. But as he explores the qualities he has identified as being necessary to integrated human behaviour, he shows us that the key is to use these qualities in combination. How can we use these qualities as positive forces in our own lives and in society? How can we use them to reinforce us as humans? On Equilibrium is an intelligent, persuasive and controversial exploration of the essential qualities of humanity and how to use them to achieve equilibrium for the self and for an ethical society. It is a logical, compelling and humane successor to his bestselling trilogy.

The Madman And The Butcher by Tim Cook : INR1698 ISBN: 9780670064038

Based on newly uncovered sources, The Madman and the Butcher is a powerful double biography of Sam Hughes and Arthur Currie and the story of one of the most shocking and highly publicized libel trials in Canadian history. Sir Arthur Currie achieved international fame as Canadian Corps commander during the Great War. He was recognized as a brilliant general, morally brave, and with a keen eye for solving the challenges of trench warfare. But wars were not won without lives lost. Who was to blame for Canada''s 60,000 dead? Sir Sam Hughes, Canada''s war minister during the first two and a half years of the conflict, was erratic, outspoken, and regarded by many as insane. Yet he was an expert on the war. He attacked Currie''s reputation in the war''s aftermath, accusing him of being a butcher, a callous murderer of his own men. Set against the backdrop of Canadians fighting in the Great War, this engaging narrative explores questions of Canada''s role in the war, the need to place blame for the terrible blood loss, the nation''s discomfort with heroes, and the very public war of reputations that raged on after the guns fell silent.

Fire In The Unnameable Country by Ghalib Islam : INR1085 ISBN: 9780143187035

 The universe is shaking as Hedayat, the "glossolalist" narrator of Fire in the Unnameable Country is born on a flying carpet in the skies above an obscure land whose leader has manufactured the ability to hear every unspoken utterance of the nation. He records the contents of his citizens'' minds onto tape reels for archival storage. Later in Hedayat''s young life, as the unnameable country collapses into disarray around him, he begins an epistle, wherein, interspersed with accounts of contemporary terrorist attacks and the outbreak of a mysterious viral epidemic, he invokes the memories of his parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents to revisit the troubled country''s history and expose the roots of its crisis. Hedayat''s dark world is entirely foreign but oddly familiar, echoing the banality of our daily diversions and adding a terrifying twist. The Mirror, a gruesome, never-ending reality show, turns the city of La Maga into a permanent Hollywood-style film set where people gamble body parts and live in fear of the Black Organs, the paramilitary manifestation of the eviscerators that threaten to infect the nation. Islam''s vibrant, ingenious construction sends the plot twisting down rabbit holes and caterwauling through secret doorways to emerge anywhere from a domestic living room to a bomb technician''s workshop to the deep recesses of the state''s repressive political apparatus. An utterly remarkable debut, filled with original characters caught up in wonderfully imaginative circumstances and rendered in uniquely inventive language, Fire in the Unnameable Country is a book like no other.

Once You Break A Knuckle by D W Wilson : INR954 ISBN: 9780143180081

An intoxicating cocktail of adrenaline and the kind of vulnerability we would all admit to if we were honest, Once You Break a Knuckle explores the courage it takes just to make it through the day. Set in the remote Kootenay Valley in western Canada, these are stories of good people doing bad things: two bullied adolescents sabotage a rope swing, resulting in another boy’s death; a heartbroken young man refuses to warn his best friend about an approaching car; sons challenge fathers and break taboos. Crackling with tension and propelled by jagged, cutting dialogue, the stories interconnect and reveal to us how our best intentions are doomed to fail or injure, how our loves can fall short or mislead us, how even friendship—especially friendship—can be something dangerously temporary. Wilson portrays a world barbed with violence and the possibility of betrayal. And yet, in this small, finely wrought universe, it is with doggedness and dignity that we carry on.

Ballistics by D W Wilson : INR954 ISBN: 9780143180098

Ballistics is a family drama with two narratives, both set in Western Canada, thirty years apart. In 2003, while the firestorm rages through Kelowna, Alan West is asked to rescue his estranged father, Jack, who abandoned him as a baby. Alan’s grandfather has suffered a heart attack and wants to see his son once more before he dies. So Alan sets off with Puck, a three-legged English mastiff, and a boxful of photographs, newspaper clippings, and other items that once belonged to his father. His quest takes him deeper and deeper into the fires, and he encounters people from his past he never knew: his mother, his father, and a dangerous American who knows far more than he ever lets on. Unbeknownst to Alan, he is tracing a path through events that were initiated years before, in 1969, by American veteran Archer Cole, who deserts the army rather than return to Vietnam and flees to Canada. Archer seeks shelter in Invermere, B.C., where he is given refuge by Alan’s grandfather and tries to build a new life from the ashes of his old one. Together with his daughter, Linnea, he regrettably—though not altogether unwillingly—sets in motion the events that will shatter two families and unleash a cycle of violence and longing that come to a climax decades later. Ballistics looks at the bonds that tie a family together; it looks at the relationship between sons and fathers, real and surrogate, and the wounds that can linger for generations when that relationship is betrayed.

No Time Like The Present by Nadine Gordimer : INR1145 ISBN: 9780143184072

Nadine Gordimer is one of our most telling contemporary writers. With each new work, she attacks—with a clear-eyed fierceness, a lack of sentimentality, and an understanding of the darkest depths of the human soul—her theme: the inextricable link between personal life and political, communal history. Revelation of this, not only in her homeland, South Africa, but in the twenty-first-century world, is fresh evidence of her literary genius: in the sharpness of her psychological insights, the stark beauty of her language,the complexity of her characters, and the difficult choices with which they are faced. In No Time Like the Present, Gordimer brings the reader into the lives of Steven Reed and Jabulile Gumede, a “mixed” couple, both of whom have been combatants in the struggle for freedom against apartheid. Once clandestine lovers under a racist law forbidding sexual relations between white and black, they are now in the new South Africa, where freedom—the “better life for all” fought for, promised—is being created while challenged by political and racial tensions, the hangover of moral ambiguities that, along with the vast gap between affluence and mass poverty, haunts from the past. No freedom from personal involvement in these, in the personal intimacy of love. The subject is contemporary, but Gordimer’s treatment is, as ever, timeless. In No Time Like the Present, she shows herself once again a master novelist, at the height of her prodigious powers.

Ridgeway by Peter Vronsky : INR1737 ISBN: 9780670068036

  In this groundbreaking narrative , historian, investigative journalist and filmmaker Peter Vronsky uncovers the hidden history of the Battle of Ridgeway and explores its significance to Canada’s nation-building myths and traditions. On June 1, 1866, more than 1,000 Fenian insurgents invaded Canada across the Niagara River from Buffalo, N.Y. The Fenians were mostly battle-hardened Civil War veterans; the Canadian troops sent to fight them came from a generation that had not seen combat at home for more than 30 years. Led by inexperienced upper-class officers, the volunteer soldiers were mostly young, some as young as 15 years old. They were farm boys, shopkeepers, apprentices, schoolteachers, store clerks and two rifle companies of University of Toronto students hastily called out from their final exams. Many had not fired live rounds from their rifles even once. When they fought the Fenians near the village of Ridgeway the next day, a single rifle company of 28 students took the brunt of a counter-attack by 800 insurgents and suffered the most killed and wounded. The events of June 2, 1866, were covered up by the Macdonald government. The story was falsified so thoroughly that most Canadians today have not heard of the first modern battle in which Canadians died.

Roughing It In The Bush Penguin Black Classics Edition by Susanna Moodie : INR1328 ISBN: 9780670065059

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CHARLOTTE GRAY Roughing It in the Bush, first published in 1852, helped to destroy British illusions about life in Upper Canada. Susanna Moodie described a life of backbreaking labour, poverty, and hardship on a pioneer farm in the colonial wilderness. Her sharp observations, satirical character sketches, and moments of despair and terror were a startling contrast to the widely circulated optimistic accounts of life in British North America, written to entice readers across the Atlantic. The spontaneity, wit, and candour of Moodie’s account of life on a backwoods farm give Roughing It in the Bush enduring appeal.

Welcome To The Urban Revolution by Jeb Brugmann : INR1694 ISBN: 9780670068050

In Welcome to the Urban Revolution, internationally recognized urbanist Jeb Brugmann turns traditional thinking about globalization on its head to show that the city isn''t a backdrop to global change; it is a central driver of change—political, economic, social, and environmental. This powerful reappraisal of the global role of cities brilliantly synthesizes urban studies, economics, and sociology to show how cities create but can also help solve some of the 21st century''s major challenges, including poverty, inequality, and environmental sustainability.

Nw by Zadie Smith : INR1533 ISBN: 9780670069057

This is the story of a city. The north-west corner of a city. Here you''ll find guests and hosts, those with power and those without it, people who live somewhere special and those who live nowhere at all. And many people in between. Every city is like this. Cheek-by-jowl living. Separate worlds. And then there are the visitations: the rare times a stranger crosses a threshold without permission or warning, causing disruption in the whole system. Like the April afternoon a woman came to Leah Hanwell''s door, seeking help, disturbing the peace, forcing Leah out of her isolation... Zadie Smith''s brilliant tragi-comic new novel follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan - as they try to make adult lives outside Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their London is a complicated place, as beautiful as it is brutal, where the thoroughfares hide the back alleys, and taking the high road can sometimes lead you to a dead end. Depicting the modern urban zone - familiar to town-dwellers everywhere - Zadie Smith''s NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, mercurial and vital like the city itself.

Unlikely Utopia by Michael Adams : INR991 ISBN: 9780143050148

Around the world, sectarian tensions divide societies, sometimes erupting into violent confrontation. Some pundits argue that similar convulsions will shake Canada’s multicultural foundations. But Michael Adams argues that Canadians don’t see this as inevitable. Far from being disabused of their naïveté by the world’s conflicts and bloodshed, Adams believes Canadians suspect that the world might just be disabused of its “realism” by the success of the Canadian multicultural experiment. By focusing on the more mundane task of helping people of all kinds get along—both materially and socially—Canada may prove to be the “experiment” that worked.

Medicine River by Thomas King : INR916 ISBN: 9780143191148

 When Will returns to Medicine River, he thinks he is simply attending his mother’s funeral. He doesn’t count on Harlen Bigbear and his unique brand of community planning. Harlen tries to sell Will on the idea of returning to Medicine River to open shop as the town’s only Native photographer. Somehow, that’s exactly what happens. Through Will’s gentle and humorous narrative, we come to know Medicine River, a small Albertan town bordering a Blackfoot reserve. And we meet its people: the basketball team; Louise Heavyman and her daughter, South Wing; Martha Oldcrow, the marriage doctor; Joe Bigbear, Harlen’s world-travelling, storytelling brother; Bertha Morley, who has a short fling with a Calgary dating service; and David Plume, who went to Wounded Knee. At the centre of it all is Harlen, advising and pestering, annoying and entertaining, gossiping and benevolently interfering in the lives of his friends and neighbours.

The Orchid And The Dandelion by W. Thomas Boyce : INR1261 ISBN: 9780670070107

From one of the world''s foremost researchers and pioneers of pediatric health--a book that offers hope and a pathway to success for parents, teachers, psychologists, pyschiatrists, and child development experts coping with difficult children. A book that fully explores the author''s revolutionary discovery about childhood development, parenting, and the key to helping all children find happiness and success.In The Orchid and the Dandelion, Dr. W. Thomas Boyce writes of the dandelion child (hardy, resilient, healthy), able to survive and flourish under most circumstances, and the orchid child (sensitive, susceptible, fragile), who, given the right support, can thrive as much as, if not more than, other children. For the past four decades Boyce has been working with troubled children. The Orchid and the Dandelion offers help to those who have lost their confidence in the promise of a child gone seriously adrift--into drug abuse, delinquency, depression, or destructive friendships, the dark territory of psychological trouble, school failure, or criminality.Boyce''s breakthrough research reveals how genetic makeup and environment shape behavior. Rather than seeing this risk gene as a liability, through his daring research, Boyce has recast the way we think of human frailty and shows that while variant genes can create problems (susceptibility to depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and antisocial, sociopathic, or violent behaviors), they can also, in the right setting and with the right nurturing, produce children who not only do better than before but far exceed their peers. He describes what it is to be an orchid child, to live a life far more intense, painful, vivid, and variable than that of a dandelion. For orchid children, the world is often a frightening and overwhelming place. He makes clear that orchids are not failed dandelions and shows people how to embrace the unique gifts, abilities, and strengths of orchid children and how to create and environment at home and work that will allow them to flourish.Boyce writes, as well, of dandelions: how vital they are to what George Eliot describes as the growing good of the world, even in the midst of their own struggles and life challenges. He writes of his own family, particularly of his sister, the inspiration for his work, an orchid child overcome by the family''s tragedies and sadnesses to which the author, as a dandelion child, was impervious.And we come to understand that beneath the servicable categories of orchid and dandelion lies the truer reality of a continuum, a spectrum of sensitivities to the world, along which we all have a place.

Dark Ambition by Ann Brocklehurst : INR1456 ISBN: 9780670070145

Shortlisted for the 2017 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize, Nonfiction CategoryLonglisted for the 2018 Frank Hegyi Award for Emerging AuthorsTim Bosma was a happy young father with a promising future when he listed his pickup truck for sale online, went for a test drive with two strangers, and never returned. The story of the Hamilton man’s strange disappearance in May 2013 captured headlines across the country and took over social media, resonating with everyone who had ever taken a test drive or bought and sold goods online.      When Dellen Millard and Mark Smich were eventually arrested and charged with Bosma’s murder, the mystery only deepened. Millard was the wealthy heir to an aviation business. Smich was his ne’er-do-well best friend from a middle-class family. There was no obvious reason why the pair had made it their deadly mission to steal a truck, murder its owner, and incinerate the body. Tim Bosma was their randomly chosen “thrill kill” target.     Veteran journalist and private investigator Ann Brocklehurst had a front-row seat at Millard’s and Smich’s 2016 trial, where many of the questions about their shocking crime were finally answered. Others still linger, waiting to be further explained at two more murder trials set for 2017. Both Millard and Smich have been charged with the first-degree murder of Laura Babcock, who disappeared in summer 2012. And Millard alone faces murder charges in the death of his father, which previously has been ruled a suicide.     Compelling and suspenseful, Dark Ambition chronicles an unfathomable crime and its chilling perpetrators.

The Pigeon Tunnel by John Le Carré : INR1070 ISBN: 9780143199182

Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I''m sitting now.     From his years serving in British Intelligence during the Cold War, to a career as a writer that took him from war-torn Cambodia to Beirut on the cusp of the 1982 Israeli invasion, to Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, John le Carré has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his first memoir, le Carré is as funny as he is incisive, reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels. Whether he''s writing about the parrot at a Beirut hotel that could perfectly mimic machine gun fire or the opening bars of Beethoven''s Fifth, visiting Rwanda''s museums of the unburied dead in the aftermath of the genocide, celebrating New Year''s Eve 1982 with Yasser Arafat and his high command, interviewing a German woman terrorist in her desert prison in the Negev, listening to the wisdoms of the great physicist, dissident, and Nobel prize winner Andrei Sakharov, meeting with two former heads of the KGB, or describing the female aid worker who inspired the main character in The Constant Gardener, le Carré endows each happening with vividness and humour, now making us laugh out loud, now inviting us to think anew about events and people we believed we understood. Best of all, le Carré gives us a glimpse of a writer''s journey over more than six decades, and his own hunt for the human spark that has given so much life and heart to his fictional characters.

The Book Of Joy by Dalai Lama : INR1676 ISBN: 9780670070169

NATIONAL BESTSELLERTwo great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity.The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet, despite having experienced great personal and national suffering.     From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake, the first being their personal stories and teachings about joy. Both the Dalai Lama and Tutu have been tested by extraordinary adversity, oppression, and conflict. The second layer consists of the exciting research into joy as well as the other qualities essential for any enduring happiness, like gratitude, humility, humour, compassion, generosity, and forgiveness. And the third encompasses practical exercises and guidance based on the Dalai Lama''s and Tutu''s own daily practices, which anchor their emotional and spiritual lives.     Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and even wise-cracking humour, how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of being.

Nine Lessons I Learned From My Father by Murray Howe : INR1195 ISBN: 9780735234178

A GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLERAs a child, Murray Howe wanted to be like his father. He was an adult before he realized that didn''t necessarily mean playing hockey.Gordie Howe may have been the greatest player in the history of hockey, but greatness was never defined by goals or assists in the Howe household. Greatness meant being the best person you could be, not the best player on the ice.     Unlike his two brother, Murray Howe failed in his attempt to follow in his father''s footsteps to become a professional athlete. Yet his failure brought him to the realization that his dream wasn''t really to be a pro hockey player. His dream was to be his father. To be amazing at something, but humble and gracious. To be courageous, and stand up for the little guy. To be a hero. You don''t need to be a hockey player to do that. What he learned was that it was a waste of time wishing you were like someone else.     When Gordie Howe passed away in 2016, it was Murray who was asked to deliver the eulogy. Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father takes the reader through the hours Murray spent writing the words that would give shape to his father''s leagcy--the hours immediately after his hero''s death, as he gathers his thoughts and memories, and makes sense of what his remarkable father meant to him. The result is nine pieces of wisdom, built out of hundreds of stories, that show us the man behind the legend and give us a glimpse of what we can learn from this incredible life.

Bobby by Bobby Orr : INR1064 ISBN: 9780735236189

The incredible story of the life and phenomenal career of hockey''s most legendary superstar, told through never-before-seen photographs. Bobby Orr rarely speaks of his accomplishments as a hockey player. He doesn’t have to—his play did all his talking for him during his storied career. His was a style of seemingly effortless grace, a style that helped reinvent the sport of hockey.   Now, Bobby Orr shares his story through a personal collection of photos, inviting readers into different seasons of his life while introducing some of the people that filled these moments in time. We see him at home and in the dressing room. We are there the day the Boston Bruins first scouted him, at rinkside when he celebrated his first Stanley Cup with his father, and back in Boston the day his famous number four was retired.   Yet behind all the statistics, trophies, and public persona, is the man himself. There were losses to go along with the victories, disappointments alongside the accomplishments. Without the people around him, and without the many challenges he faced along the way, the triumphs would have meant much less.   Capturing not only a legendary career and incredible person, Bobby: My Story in Pictures also brings into focus a different era. These photos chronicle not only the changing of the game, but also mark many significant milestones of his life.   Personal, thoughtful, and full of never-before-seen images of Bobby Orr and those close to him, Bobby shows the varied sides of a player who rewrote the record book. It is a public journey into a world of a very private man.

Indigenous Healing by Rupert Ross : INR969 ISBN: 9780143191100

Imagine a world in which people see themselves as embedded in the natural order, with ethical responsibilities not only toward each other, but also toward rocks, trees, water and all nature. Imagine seeing yourself not as a master of Creation, but as the most humble, dependent and vulnerable part.     Rupert Ross explores this indigenous world view and the determination of indigenous thinkers to restore it to full prominence today. He comes to understand that an appreciation of this perspective is vital to understanding the destructive forces of colonization. As a former Crown Attorney in northern Ontario, Ross witnessed many of these forces. He examines them here with a special focus on residential schools and their power to destabilize entire communities long after the last school has closed. With help from many indigenous authors, he explores their emerging conviction that healing is now better described as “decolonization therapy.” And the key to healing, they assert, is a return to the traditional indigenous world view.   The author of two previous bestsellers on indigenous themes, Dancing with a Ghost and Returning to the Teachings, Ross shares his continuing personal journey into traditional understanding with all of the confusion, delight and exhilaration of learning to see the world in a different way.    Ross sees the beginning of a vibrant future for indigenous people across Canada as they begin to restore their own definition of a “healthy person” and bring that indigenous wellness into being once again. Indigenous Healing is a hopeful book, not only for indigenous people, but for all others open to accepting some of their ancient lessons about who we might choose to be.

The Guardian by Jack Whyte : INR655 ISBN: 9780143169130

The stunning third volume in the Guardians series From the master of the sweeping historical epic comes the story of two heroes who reshaped and reconfigured the entire destiny of the kingdom of Scotland by defying the might and power of Edward Plantagenet, the king of England, Hammer of the Scots. Wallace the Braveheart would become the only legendary, heroic commoner in medieval British history and the undying champion of the common man. The other, Robert Bruce, earl of Carrick, would perfect the techniques of guerilla warfare developed by Wallace and use them to create his own place in history as the greatest king of Scots who ever lived.   In the spring of 1297, the two men meet in Ayr, in the south of Scotland, each having recently lost a young wife, one in childbirth and the other by murder. Each is heartbroken but determined in his grief to defy the ambitions of England and its malignant king, whose lust to conquer and consume the realm of Scotland is blatant and unyielding. Their combined anger at the injustices of the invading English is about to unleash a storm in Scotland that will last for sixteen years—and destroy England’s military power for decades—before giving rise to a new nation of free men.   Jack Whyte’s masterful storytelling breathes life into the rugged men who waged Scotland’s brutal wars of independence and shaped her future.

Now I'm Catching On by Bob Cole : INR1018 ISBN: 9780143198161

Hockey''s most famous voice, now in his own words.If you are a hockey fan, you know Bob Cole''s legendary voice.      He has done the play-by-play for some of hockey''s best-remembered games, including the Summit Series, Canada''s gold-medal game in Salt Lake City, and twenty years of Stanley Cup finals. The infectious excitement in his voice, his boyish love of the game, and his uncanny ability to anticipate the play have earned him the affection of generations of fans, induction into the Hall of Fame, and the unofficial title of best hockey broadcaster ever.     Now, for the first time, readers will see Cole at the centre of the story rather than watching it from the broadcast booth. We meet the young man growing up in Newfoundland in the years before it joins Canada. We see him talk his way into Foster Hewitt''s office and into his first job. And of course we see some of the most cherished players in the game backstage: on the plane back from Russia in 1972, rubbing elbows with Bobby Orr; in the hallway on the old Montreal Forum, running into Jean Beliveau; meeting young players like Steve Stamkos, who grew up listening to him on Hockey Night in Canada.      Written with the expert help of massively bestselling author and respected broadcaster Stephen Brunt, these stories come to life with the charm and detail of a conversation with Cole. They sound like Cole.      No one has been closer to the game over the years than Cole, and no one is more closely associated with all we love about the game than the man whose eyes we''ve seen it though. Now we will see so much more through those same eyes and in that unforgettable voice.

Two women arrive in a Spanish village—a dreamlike place caught between the desert and the ocean—seeking medical advice and salvation. One of the strangers suffers from a mysterious illness: spontaneous paralysis confines her to a wheelchair, her legs unusable. The other, her daughter Sofia, has spent years playing the reluctant detective in this mystery, struggling to understand her mother''s illness.     Surrounded by the oppressive desert heat and the mesmerising figures who move through it, Sofia waits while her mother undergoes the strange programme of treatments invented by Dr. Gomez. Searching for a cure to a defiant and quite possibly imagined disease, ever more entangled in the seductive, mercurial games of those around her, Sofia finally comes to confront and reconcile the disparate fragments of her identity.     Hot Milk is a labyrinth of violent desires, primal impulses, and surreally persuasive internal logic. Examining female rage and sexuality, Deborah Levy''s dazzling new novel explores the strange and monstrous nature of motherhood, testing the bonds of parent and child to breaking point.

Le Carré's finest novel in years, it is also an intimate portrait of two families: one Russian, the other English; one trading illicit goods, the other laundering the profits; one betrayed by a son-in-law, the other betrayed, and redeemed, by a son.This is territory le Carré knows better than anyone. Masterful and prescient, he is writing at the height of his creative powers, and Oliver Single, the central protagonist, is one of his most fascinating characters.

Winner of the 2015 RBC Taylor PrizeWinner of the 2016 Forest of Reading® Evergreen Award™ #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLERA warm, heartfelt memoir of family, loss, and a house jam-packed with decades of memories.After almost twenty years of caring for elderly parents--first for their senile father, and then for their cantankerous ninety-three-year old mother--author Plum Johnson and her three younger brothers have finally fallen to their knees with conflicted feelings of grief and relief. Now they must empty and sell the beloved family home, 23 rooms bulging with history, antiques, and oxygen tanks. Plum thought: How tough will that be? I know how to buy garbage bags.     But the task turns out to be much harder and more rewarding than she ever imagined. Items from childhood trigger difficult memories of her eccentric family growing up in the 1950s and ''60s, but unearthing new facts about her parents helps her reconcile those relationships, with a more accepting perspective about who they were and what they valued. They Left Us Everything is a funny, touching memoir about the importance of preserving family history to make sense of the past, and nurturing family bonds to safeguard the future.

Red Planet Blues by Robert J Sawyer : INR655 ISBN: 9780143180111

Robert J. Sawyer presents a noir mystery set on a lawless Mars in a future in which  everything is cheap and life is even cheaper... The name’s Lomax—Alex Lomax. I’m the one and only private eye working the  mean streets of New Klondike, the Martian frontier town that sprang up forty  years ago after Simon Weingarten and Denny O’Reilly discovered fossils on the  Red Planet. Back on Earth, where anything can be synthesized, the remains of  alien life are the most valuable of all collectibles, so shiploads of desperate treasure  hunters stampeded here in the Great Martian Fossil Rush. I’m trying to make an honest buck in a dishonest world, tracking down killers and  kidnappers among the failed prospectors, the corrupt cops, and a growing population  of transfers—lucky stiffs who, after striking paleontological gold, upload their minds  into immortal android bodies. But when I uncover clues to solving the decades-old  murders of Weingarten and O’Reilly, along with a journal that may lead to their  legendary mother lode of Martian fossils, God only knows what I’ll dig up…

Vimy by Tim Cook : INR1258 ISBN: 9780735233188

A bold new telling of the defining battle of the Great War, and how it came to signify and solidify Canada''s national identity.      Why does Vimy loom so large in Canada''s identity--and should it? Tim Cook, Canada''s foremost military historian and a Charles Taylor Prize winner, examines the battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 and the way the memory of it has evolved over 100 years. Vimy is unlike any other battle in Canadian history: it has been described as the birth of the nation. But the meaning of that phrase has never been explored, nor has any writer explained why the battle continues to resonate with Canadians. The Vimy battle that began April 9, 1917, marked the first time the four divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force fought together. 10,600 men were killed or injured over four days--twice the casualty rate of the Dieppe Raid in August 1942.     Cook has uncovered new material and photographs from official archives and private collections across Canada and from around the world. Many of these resources have never been used before by other historians, writers, or film-makers.     With the 100th anniversary of Vimy and Canada''s celebrations of 150 years of nationhood just past, this new book is about more than a defining battle: it is a story of Canadian identity and memory, by a writer who brings history alive.

Hater by John Semley : INR970 ISBN: 9780735236165

A timely manifesto urging us to think critically, form opinions, and then argue them with gusto.Hater begins from a simple premise: that it''s good to hate things. Not people or groups or benign belief systems, but things. More to the point, it''s good to hate the things everyone seems to like. Scan the click-baiting headlines of your favorite news or pop-culture website and you''re likely to find that just about everything is, supposedly, what we need right now. We are the victims of an unbridled, unearned optimism. And our world demands pessimism. It''s vital to be contrarian--now, as they say, more than ever. Because ours is an age of calcified consensus. And we should all hate that. In this scathing and funny rebuke of the status quo, journalist John Semley illustrates that looking for and identifying nonsense isn''t just a useful exercise for society, it''s also a lot of fun. But Hater doesn''t just skewer terrible TV shows and hit songs--at its core it shows us how to meaningfully talk about and engage with culture, and the world. Ultimately, Hater is what we actually need right now.

The Power Of Meaning by Emily Esfahani-smith : INR1115 ISBN: 9780143194187

For anyone exhausted or disillusioned by the perpetual pursuit of personal happiness, here is the antidote: a book about the pursuit of meaning, a better route to a fulfilling life.We have a lot to be happy about. And yet, we''re more dissatisfied than ever. In The Power of Meaning, Emily Esfahani Smith argues that we''ve been chasing the wrong thing. It''s not happiness that makes life worth living--it''s meaning.     Drawing on the latest cognitive science research, as well as insights from literature and philosophy and her own prodigious reporting, Smith shows that by developing a meaning mindset, we can all achieve a deeper satisfaction.     With a warm, assured voice that moves effortlessly from George Eliot and Aristotle to Monty Python and Louis C.K., Smith spells out the four pillars of the meaning mindset: cultivating connections to others, working toward our life''s purpose, telling stories about our place in the world, and finding transcendence. And she shows us how we can lean on the pillars in difficult times, and how we might begin to build a culture of meaning in our families, our workplaces, and our communities.     Stirring, inspiring, and story-driven, The Power of Meaning will strike a profound chord in anyone seeking more in life.

Triggers by Robert J Sawyer : INR735 ISBN: 9780143180104

On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin’s bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life. At the same hospital, Professor Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories. Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience, but the memories that flash through Jerrison’s mind are not his own. It quickly becomes clear that the electromagnetic pulse generated by the bomb amplified and scrambled Professor Singh’s equipment, allowed a random group of people to access one another’s minds.

But the task of determining who has switched memories with whom is a daunting one – particularly when some of the people involved have reason to lie…

The History Of Canada Series by Julie F Gilmour : INR1289 ISBN: 9780670065127

The weather September 7, 1907 was hot and tempers were short. British  Columbians had always been sensitive to Asian immigration and had become increasingly  fearful over the summer. More Japanese immigrants were coming to B.C. and rumours  smouldered of massive labour contracts for the projected Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Like the citizens of Seattle and San Francisco, the residents of Vancouver had established a  bipartisan Asiatic Exclusion League aimed at Japanese, Chinese, and South Asian immigrants  in order to protect “White Canada.” The league had widespread support among trade  union organizations and churches, and so a parade during the Labour Day weekend was  scheduled. The result was a violent riot that drew the world’s attention to Vancouver, to  Canadian immigration policy, and to Britain’s 1902 alliance with the Japanese. Historian Julie Gilmour traces the impact of these events on the life and work of future  prime minister W.L. Mackenzie King, and on Canada’s relationships with Britain, the  United States , China, Japan, and India. King’s involvement with the commissions set up to  evaluate the damages incurred during the riots led to his interest in opium suppression and  immigration control, and clarified his own sense of Canada’s role in the empire. Trouble on  Main Street portrays a nation, and a time, at once relatively recent and shockingly unrecognizable.  Over a century later, the links between local pressures, policy, and international  events provide insight into current debates on terror, immigration, and Canadian security.

Now I'm Catching On by Bob Cole : INR530 ISBN: 9780670070121

Hockey''s most famous voice, now in his own words.If you are a hockey fan, you know Bob Cole''s legendary voice.      He has done the play-by-play for some of hockey''s best-remembered games, including the Summit Series, Canada''s gold-medal game in Salt Lake City, and twenty years of Stanley Cup finals. The infectious excitement in his voice, his boyish love of the game, and his uncanny ability to anticipate the play have earned him the affection of generations of fans, induction into the Hall of Fame, and the unofficial title of best hockey broadcaster ever.     Now, for the first time, readers will see Cole at the centre of the story rather than watching it from the broadcast booth. We meet the young man growing up in Newfoundland in the years before it joins Canada. We see him talk his way into Foster Hewitt''s office and into his first job. And of course we see some of the most cherished players in the game backstage: on the plane back from Russia in 1972, rubbing elbows with Bobby Orr; in the hallway on the old Montreal Forum, running into Jean Beliveau; meeting young players like Steve Stamkos, who grew up listening to him on Hockey Night in Canada.      Written with the expert help of massively bestselling author and respected broadcaster Stephen Brunt, these stories come to life with the charm and detail of a conversation with Cole. They sound like Cole.      No one has been closer to the game over the years than Cole, and no one is more closely associated with all we love about the game than the man whose eyes we''ve seen it though. Now we will see so much more through those same eyes and in that unforgettable voice.

 If every hockey player’s dream begins on a frozen pond, it reaches its pinnacle in a packed arena facing off against a bitter international rival. Could be the mighty Soviets. Could be the vainglorious Americans. Doesn’t matter, as long as the guys, and more recently, the women, who come from the farming villages, logging towns, and bustling cities of Canada show up to play the game the way we invented it to be played. That’s the way it’s been for a hundred years.   No game matters more than the one that pits our best against the world’s best. From the earliest days of the past century, when milkmen still did their rounds in horse-drawn carts each morning, to the Sochi Olympics, where both the men and women stood on their blue lines with gold medals around their necks as the Canadian flag was raised.   This beautiful book, with rare archival images, celebrates a hundred of the greatest moments from Hockey Canada, the organization that has given Canada its most cherished hockey memories. It’s Our Game is the definitive account of a century of Canadians working to be the best at the sport they love most.

Love Lives Here by Amanda Jette Knox : INR1177 ISBN: 9780735235175

An inspirational story of accepting and embracing two trans people in a family--a family who shows what''s possible when you lead with love.All Amanda Jetté Knox ever wanted was to enjoy a stable life. She never knew her biological father, and while her mother and stepfather were loving parents, the situation was sometimes chaotic. At school, she was bullied mercilessly, and at the age of fourteen, she entered a counselling program for alcohol addiction and was successful. While still a teenager, she met the love of her life. They were wed at 20, and the first of three children followed shortly. Jetté Knox finally had the stability she craved--or so it seemed. Their middle child struggled with depression and avoided school. The author was unprepared when the child she knew as her son came out as transgender at the age of eleven. Shocked, but knowing how important it was to support her daughter, Jetté Knox became an ardent advocate for trans rights.But the story wasn''t over. For many years, the author had coped with her spouse''s moodiness, but that chronic unhappiness was taking a toll on their marriage. A little over a year after their child came out, her partner also came out as transgender. Knowing better than most what would lie ahead, Jetté Knox searched for positive examples of marriages surviving transition. When she found no role models, she determined that her family would become one. The shift was challenging, but slowly the family members noticed that they were becoming happier and more united. Told with remarkable candour and humour, and full of insight into the challenges faced by trans people, Love Lives Here is a beautiful story of transition, frustration, support, acceptance, and, of course, love.

Vimy by Tim Cook : INR1839 ISBN: 9780735233164

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLERWinner of the 2018 JW Dafoe Book PrizeLonglisted for British Columbia''s National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction 2018A bold new telling of the defining battle of the Great War, and how it came to signify and solidify Canada’s national identityWhy does Vimy matter? How did a four-day battle at the midpoint of the Great War, a clash that had little strategic impact on the larger Allied war effort, become elevated to a national symbol of Canadian identity? Tim Cook, Canada’s foremost military historian and a Charles Taylor Prize winner, examines the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the way the memory of it has evolved over 100 years. The operation that began April 9, 1917, was the first time the four divisions of the Canadian Corps fought together. More than 10,000 Canadian soldiers were killed or injured over four days—twice the casualty rate of the Dieppe Raid in August 1942. The Corps’ victory solidified its reputation among allies and opponents as an elite fighting force. In the wars’ aftermath, Vimy was chosen as the site for the country’s strikingly beautiful monument to mark Canadian sacrifice and service. Over time, the legend of Vimy took on new meaning, with some calling it the “birth of the nation.”    The remarkable story of Vimy is a layered skein of facts, myths, wishful thinking, and conflicting narratives. Award-winning writer Tim Cook explores why the battle continues to resonate with Canadians a century later. He has uncovered fresh material and photographs from official archives and private collections across Canada and from around the world.     On the 100th anniversary of the event, and as Canada celebrates 150 years as a country, Vimy is a fitting tribute to those who fought the country’s defining battle. It is also a stirring account of Canadian identity and memory, told by a masterful storyteller.

Extraordinary Canadians Glenn Gould by Mark Kingwell : INR662 ISBN: 9780143169154

Glenn Gould, one of the twentieth century’s most renowned classical musicians, was also known as an eccentric genius—solitary, headstrong, a hypochondriac virtuoso. Abandoning stage performances in 1964, Gould concentrated instead on mastering various media: recordings, radio, television, and print. His sudden death at age fifty stunned the world, but his music and legacy continue to inspire. Philosopher and critic Mark Kingwell regards Gould as an innovative thinker whose ideas about music governed his life. But those ideas were contradictory, mischievous, and deliberately provocative. Just as Gould played twenty-one “takes” to record the opening aria in the famed 1955 Goldberg Variations, Kingwell offers twenty-one takes on Gould’s life. Each version offers a different interpretation of the man, but in each, Kingwell is sensitive to the complex harmonies and dissonances that sounded throughout the life of the great Gould.

By The Secret Ladder by Frances Greenslade : INR1193 ISBN: 9780143017189

Frances Greenslade turns her keen eye to the familiar subject of motherhood, and renders it new. In an era when women know exactly “what to expect,” as well as how they’ll give birth, feed their babies, and whether they’ll go back to work or stay at home, the reality of new motherhood is anything but expected. Overwhelmed, exhausted, and often confused, the refrain of new mothers is more often this: “Nobody told me it would be this way. I had no idea.” Until now. Based upon her own, at times dramatic, childbirth experience, By The Secret Ladder articulates with unflinching candour the fear, trauma, and unsurpassed joy that all women undergo, but few talk about, on their journey to motherhood—a journey Greenslade envisions as nothing less than a transforming, even heroic, quest. By The Secret Ladder rediscovers motherhood for a new generation. Wise and funny, it will strike a powerful and comforting chord in mothers, new or experienced.

Fury ensues, the police are called, and the migrant workers pile into one of the trailer homes and hightail it out of their little Arcadia, setting off on one of the most enchanting, merry, and moving picaresque journeys since Chaucer’s pilgrims set off to Canterbury.

The Looking Glass War by John Le Carré : INR712 ISBN: 9780143171126

ONE LAST CHANCE TO PROVE THEIR METTLE There was a time when the distinctions were clear: the Circus handled all things political while the Department handled all matters military. After the war, power shifted and the Department faded out of influence. But with the unexpected intelligence of a possible missile threat, the Department again has a mission. The opportunity to reclaim former glory cannot be missed –  even if it means putting men’s lives at risk on foreign soil. A top-secret British operation is underway to uncover facts regarding Soviet missiles in Germany. The government lures a German-speaking Pole turned Englishman, Fred Leiser, back from retirement to reverse potential international upheaval. Michael Jayston accompanies the listener on a fascinating insider''s tour of an international spy network and introduces the dedicated and complicated cast of characters who risk all to carry out their missions. Jayston exposes the unabashed greed of the government''s motives as its members manipulate the rusty Leiser. The mission through Germany is elaborate and demanding, and Jayston''s description of Leiser''s dire predicament never loses momentum

Bad Animals by Joel Yanofsky : INR1038 ISBN: 9780143177197

Strange is not a word he should use (it’s not quite politically correct), but sometimes Joel Yanofsky can think of no other way to describe life with his son, Jonah—life with autism. Jonah is “on the spectrum” of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), but knowing the correct terminology makes it no easier for Yanofsky to understand his ten-year-old son’s complicated relationship with the world. While his wife, Cynthia, an art therapist, assumed the burden of researching ASD and investigating effective treatments for Jonah, Yanofsky tried other approaches. In this funny and moving account of a year in their life together, he chronicles his struggle to enter his son’s world using the materials he knows best: self-help books, feel-good memoirs, and literary classics ranging from the Old Testament to Dr. Seuss, as well as knock-knock jokes, riddles, and puns—all the wacky routines Yanofsky calls schtick. Told with candour, insight, and compassion, Bad Animals is not only about autism; it’s about the things that make life worth living.

The Siesta And The Midnight Sun by Jessa Gamble : INR1290 ISBN: 9780670065110

  When a retiring worker is given a gold watch, Jessa Gamble observes, she symbolically gets back the freedom to keep her own hours. There were no mechanical timepieces before the industrial revolution. The day’s activities were dictated by the spinning Earth’s circuit around the Sun and by the seasons. Because people adjusted their lives to these natural rhythms, they may have experienced less stress than their modern counterparts. They almost certainly enjoyed more sleep. In The Siesta and the Midnight Sun, award-winning science writer Jessa Gamble explores the continuing significance of the biological clocks that governed our lives before modern technology annihilated the night. She describes experiments that show both rats and people adhere to a 24-hour schedule even when deprived of daylight. When our days are disrupted by shift work, jet lag or space travel, things go wrong. The disastrous chemical leak at Bhopal, India and the calamitous launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger both were caused partly by sleepless workers. Insomnia is rampant in the Western world. By investigating patterns of behaviour in many societies both past and current, Gamble gives us a glimpse of different ways of scheduling time. In this superbly insightful and entertaining book she examines the crises and creative adaptations that occur on the embattled border where biology, culture and technology clash.

But You Did Not Come Back by M Loridan-ivens : INR212 ISBN: 9780670070114

A breathtakingly beautiful memoir by a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and an astonishing addition to the library of literature on the HolocaustMarceline Loridan-Ivens was just fifteen when she was arrested along with her father in the Vichy-ruled part of France. Her mother and siblings managed to escape arrest. On their arrival at the camps, the two were separated--her father sent to Auschwitz, she to the neighboring camp of Birkenau. The three kilometres that separated them were an insurmountable distance, and yet her father managed to send her a short note, addressed to My darling little girl. In But You Did Not Come Back, Marceline writes a letter responding to the father she would never know as an adult, to the man whose death enveloped her whole life. As a documentary film-maker in the 1970s and ''80s, working in China and Vietnam, Marceline ultimately found purpose in her life, but the loss of her father never diminished in its intensity. And now, as anti-Semitism resurfaces in many parts of the world, Loridan-Ivens''s testimony is a haunting and challenging reminder of one of the worst crimes humanity has ever seen. It is a deeply affecting personal story of a woman whose life was shattered and gradually rebuilt, and an irrefutable example of how memory survives and shapes everything.

Then a serious illness struck, and threatened ti rob her of all she had worked for. But Colleen, determined as ever, emerged with a renewed love of life and a powerful message about achieving authentic personal fulfillment.    Throwing Rocks at Houses is a candid, charming and thoughtful story about rising to the top only to learn how easily it can all be taken away.

Nine Lessons I Learned From My Father by Murray Howe : INR1038 ISBN: 9780735234192

A GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLERAs a child, Murray Howe wanted to be like his father. He was an adult before he realized that didn''t necessarily mean playing hockey.Gordie Howe may have been the greatest player in the history of hockey, but greatness was never defined by goals or assists in the Howe household. Greatness meant being the best person you could be, not the best player on the ice.     Unlike his two brother, Murray Howe failed in his attempt to follow in his father''s footsteps to become a professional athlete. Yet his failure brought him to the realization that his dream wasn''t really to be a pro hockey player. His dream was to be his father. To be amazing at something, but humble and gracious. To be courageous, and stand up for the little guy. To be a hero. You don''t need to be a hockey player to do that. What he learned was that it was a waste of time wishing you were like someone else.     When Gordie Howe passed away in 2016, it was Murray who was asked to deliver the eulogy. Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father takes the reader through the hours Murray spent writing the words that would give shape to his father''s leagcy--the hours immediately after his hero''s death, as he gathers his thoughts and memories, and makes sense of what his remarkable father meant to him. The result is nine pieces of wisdom, built out of hundreds of stories, that show us the man behind the legend and give us a glimpse of what we can learn from this incredible life.

Better Living Through Plastic Explosives by Zsuzsi Gartner : INR1473 ISBN: 9780670065189

From an emerging master of short fiction and one of Canada''s most distinctive voices, a collection of stories as heartbreaking as those of Lorrie Moore and as hilariously off-kilter as something out of McSweeney''s. In Better Living through Plastic Explosives, Zsuzsi Gartner delivers a powerful second dose of the lacerating satire that marked her acclaimed debut, All the Anxious Girls on Earth, but with even greater depth and darker humour. Whether she casts her eye on evolution and modern manhood when an upscale cul-de-sac is thrown into chaos after a redneck moves into the neighbourhood, international adoption, war photography, real estate, the movie industry, motivational speakers, or terrorism, Gartner filets the righteous and the ridiculous with dexterity in equal, glorious measure. These stories ruthlessly expose our most secret desires, and allow us to snort with laughter at the grotesque world we''d live in if we all got what we wanted.

The Long Song by Andrea Levy : INR1549 ISBN: 9780670064113

You do not know me yet but I am the narrator of this work. My son Thomas, who is printing this book, tells me it is customary at this place in a novel to give the reader a little taste of the story that is held within its pages. As your storyteller, I am to convey that this tale is set in Jamaica during the last turbulent years of slavery and the early years of freedom that followed. July is a slave girl who lives upon a sugar plantation called Amity and it is her life that is the subject of this tale. She was there when the Baptist War raged in 1831, and she was also present when slavery was declared no more. My son says I must convey how the story also tells of July''s mama, Kitty; of the negroes that worked the plantation land; of Caroline Mortimer, the white woman who owned the plantation; and many more persons besides—far too many for me to list here. But what befalls them all is carefully chronicled upon these pages for you to peruse. Perhaps, my son suggests, I might write that it is a thrilling journey through that time in the company of people who lived it. All this he wishes me to pen so the reader can decide if this is a novel they might care to consider. Cha, I tell my son, what fuss-fuss. Come, let them just read it for themselves.

My Mother's Secret by J L Witterick : INR1021 ISBN: 9780670068104

Inspired by a true story, My Mother’s Secret is a profound, captivating, and ultimately uplifting tale intertwining the lives of two Jewish families in hiding from the Nazis, a fleeing German soldier, and the mother and daughter who team up to save them. Franciszka and her daughter, Helena, are unlikely heroines. They are simple people who mind their own business and don’t stand out from the crowd … until 1939, when crisis strikes. The Nazis invade Poland and start to persecute the Jews. Providing shelter to Jews has become a death sentence, and yet Franciszka and Helena do exactly that. In their tiny two-room house in Sokal, they cleverly hide a Jewish family in a loft above their pigsty, a Jewish doctor with his wife and son in a makeshift cellar under the kitchen floorboards, and a defecting German soldier in the attic—each party completely unknown to the others. For everyone to survive, Franciszka will have to outsmart her neighbors and the German commander. Told simply and succinctly from four different perspectives—all under one roof—My Mother’s Secret is a testament to the kindness, courage, and generosity of ordinary people who choose to be extraordinary.

Extraordinary Canadians Wilfrid Laurier by Andre Pratte : INR1258 ISBN: 9780670069187

Everyone knows that Wilfrid Laurier was a great prime minister, an astonishing speaker, and a survivor. But nobody has looked at him as more than a mythological figure for a very long time. André Pratte, chief editorial writer of La Presse, uncovers Laurier''s full complexity amid the charged political circumstances of the early 20th century. Laurier tried to unite a country deeply divided in the wake of the First World War, grappling with the thorny questions of minority rights, multiple cultures, and regional tensions. A superb orator—his defence of Louis Riel established him as perhaps Canada''s greatest speaker—he talked to his listeners as if they were as intelligent and well-read as he. Pratte reveals a Laurier who did not have to create a special political strategy in order to deal with the complexities of Canada. His personality, in and of itself, was a mirror of that complexity. Pratte''s Laurier affirms our long and stable history, while recognizing that events are never predictable. Like Laurier, great leaders must accept both to govern Canada successfully.

The captain, a fan favourite, a star in international competition, Tootoo was always a leader. And when he was drafted by Nashville in 2001 and made the Predators out of camp in 2003, he became a leader in another way--as the first player of Inuk descent to suit up in the NHL.    All the challenges and pressure would have been more than enough for any rookie, but Tootoo faced something far more difficult: the tragic loss of his older brother before his first shift for the Predators. Though he played through it, Tootoo suffered from many of the same problems that have plagued so many people from his community. In 2010, he checked himself into rehab for alcohol addiction. It seemed as though a promising career had ended too soon.     But that''s not the way Tootoo saw it and not the way it would end. Told in Tootoo''s bold voice, with contributions by Stephen Brunt, arguably one of the best sportswriters, All the Way is the searing, honest tale of a young man who has risen to every challenge but all too nearly fell short in the toughest game of all.

The Secret History Of Soldiers by Tim Cook : INR1409 ISBN: 9780735235267

There have been thousands of books on the Great War, but most have focused on commanders, battles, strategy, and tactics. Less attention has been paid to the daily lives of the combatants, how they endured the unimaginable conditions of industrial warfare: the rain of shells, bullets, and chemical agents. In The Secret History of Soldiers, Tim Cook, Canada''s foremost military historian, examines how those who survived trench warfare on the Western Front found entertainment, solace, relief, and distraction from the relentless slaughter. These tales come from the soldiers themselves, mined from the letters, diaries, memoirs, and oral accounts of more than five hundred combatants. Rare examples of trench art, postcards, and even song sheets offer insight into a hidden society that was often irreverent, raunchy, and anti-authoritarian. Believing in supernatural stories was another way soldiers shielded themselves from the horror. While novels and poetry often depict the soldiers of the Great War as mere victims, this new history shows how the soldiers pushed back against the grim war, refusing to be broken in the mincing machine of the Western Front. The violence of war is always present, but Cook reveals the gallows humour the soldiers employed to get through it. Over the years, both writers and historians have overlooked this aspect of the men''s lives. The fighting at the front was devastating, but behind the battle lines, another layer of life existed, one that included songs, skits, art, and soldier-produced newspapers.With his trademark narrative abilities and an unerring eye for the telling human detail, Cook has created another landmark history of Canadian military life as he reveals the secrets of how soldiers survived the carnage of the Western Front.

Lightfoot by Nicholas Jennings : INR816 ISBN: 9780143199212

The definitive biography of Canada''s most beloved singer-songwriter, a legendary musician who helped define the folk-pop era.      From the tender ballad of Beautiful to the historical lament of The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald to the plaintive political plea of Black Day in July, Gordon Lightfoot''s songs have inspired and enchanted fans for more than fifty years. Beloved by a devoted Canadian audience, Lightfoot''s work has been performed and admired by musicians from around the world, including Joni Mitchell, Nico, Ronnie Hawkins, and Robbie Robertson. Nobel Prize-winner Bob Dylan once listed Sundown and If You Could Read My Mind among his favourite Lightfoot songs, before adding, I can''t think of any I don''t like. In addition to winning nearly every Canadian music award, in 2012, Lightfoot was inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside such luminaries as Leonard Cohen, Kris Kristoffersen, and Dylan; it honoured Lightfoot as a singer who helped define the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and ''70s.      Biographer Nick Jennings has had unprecedented access to the notoriously reticent musician. He chronicles Lightfoot''s early efforts--his school principal recorded a disc of Gordie singing at age 9--to his beginnings as a songwriter to his heyday in concert halls around the globe. Possessed of a strong work ethic and a perfectionist bent, Lightfoot brought discipline to his craft and performances. But he partied just as hard in that rock ''n'' roll era, and alcoholism began to take its toll. Lightfoot toured relentlessly and his personal life suffered as marriages and relationships unravelled. At 63, he suffered an aortic aneurysm that nearly killed him and kept him in a coma for six weeks. But his amazing stamina helped him survive and miraculously saw him on stage once again, resuming his touring and yearly sold-out show at Massey Hall.     Jennings paints an unforgettable portrait of an artist in the making, set against the turbulent era of sex and drugs and rock ''n'' roll. Voices from the music industry mix with loyal fans to illustrate how the boy from small-town Ontario became the legendary bard of Canada. Stuffed with anecdotes and the singer''s own reminisences, Lightfoot is an exhilarating read.

Dancing With A Ghost by Rupert Ross : INR1144 ISBN: 9780143054269

As a Crown Attorney working with First Nations in remote northwestern Ontario, Rupert Ross learned that he was routinely misinterpreting the behaviour of Aboriginal victims, witnesses, and offenders, both in and out of court. He discovered that he regularly drew wrong conclusions when he encountered witnesses who wouldn’t make eye contact, victims who wouldn’t testify in the presence of the accused, and parents who showed great reluctance to interfere in their children’s offending behaviour. With the assistance of Aboriginal teachers, he began to see that behind such behaviour lay a complex web of coherent cultural commandments that he had never suspected, much less understood. As his awareness of traditional Native teachings grew, he found that the areas of miscommunication extended well beyond the courtroom, causing cross-cultural misunderstanding—and ill-informed condemnation. Dancing with a Ghost is Ross’s attempt to give some definition to the cultural gap that bedevils the relationships and distorts the communications between Native peoples and the dominant white Canadian society—and to encourage others to begin their own respectful cross-cultural explorations. As Ross discovered, traditional perspectives have a great deal to offer modern-day Canada, not only in the context of justice but also in terms of the broader concepts of peaceful social organization and personal fulfilment.

The Storied Life Of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin : INR937 ISBN: 9780143191278

 An irresistible novel about second chances and finding room for all the books—and all the love—that transforms our lives A.J. Fikry’s life is not at all what he expected it to be. His wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. Slowly but surely, he is isolating himself from all the people of Alice Island—from Chief Lambiase, the well-intentioned police officer who’s always felt kindly toward him; from Ismay, his sister-in-law, who is hell-bent on saving A.J. from his dreary self; from Amelia, the lovely and idealistic (if eccentric) Knightley Press sales rep who persists in taking the ferry to Alice Island, refusing to be deterred by A.J.’s bad attitude. Even the books in his store have stopped holding pleasure for him. These days, he can only see them as a sign of a world that is changing too rapidly. And then a mysterious package appears at the bookstore. It’s a small package, though large in weight—an unexpected arrival that gives A.J. the opportunity to make his life over, the ability to see everything anew. It doesn’t take long for the locals to notice the change overcoming A.J., for the determined sales rep Amelia to see her curmudgeonly client in a new light, for the wisdom of all those books to become again the lifeblood of A.J.’s world. Or for everything to twist again into a version of his life that he didn’t see coming. As surprising as it is moving, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry is an unforgettable tale of transformation and second chances, an irresistible affirmation of why we read, and why we love.

Belonging by Simon Schama : INR1974 ISBN: 9780670068289

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE FOR NON-FICTIONThe Jewish story is a history that is about, and for, all of us. And in our own time of anxious arrivals and enforced departures, the Jews'' search for a home is more startlingly resonant than ever.Belonging is a magnificent cultural history abundantly alive with energy, character and colour. It spans centuries and even continents: from the Jews'' expulsion from Spain in 1492 it navigates miracles and massacres, wandering, discrimination, harmony and tolerance; to the brink of the twentieth century and, it seems, a point of profound hope.      It tells the stories not just of rabbis and philosophers but of a poetess in the ghetto of Venice; a boxer in Georgian England; a general in Ming China; an opera composer in nineteenth-century Germany. The story unfolds in Kerala and Mantua, the starlit hills of Galilee, the rivers of Colombia, the kitchens of Istanbul, the taverns of Ukraine and the mining camps of California. It sails in caravels, rides the stagecoaches and the railways; trudges the dawn streets of London, hobbles along with the remnant of Napoleon''s ruined army.      Through Simon Schama''s passionate telling of this second chronicle in an epic tale, a history emerges of the Jewish people that feels like it is the story of everyone, of humanity.

Weaponized Lies by Daniel J. Levitin : INR1038 ISBN: 9780143196297

Winner of the National Business Book Award Winner of the Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-FictionPreviously Published as A Field Guide to LiesWe’re surrounded by fringe theories, fake news, and pseudo-facts. These lies are getting repeated. New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin shows how to disarm these socially devastating inventions and get our minds back on track. Here are the fundamental lessons in critical thinking that we need to know and share now. Investigating numerical misinformation, Daniel Levitin shows how mishandled statistics and graphs can give a grossly distorted perspective and lead us to terrible decisions. Wordy arguments on the other hand can easily be persuasive as they drift away from the facts in an appealing yet misguided way. The steps we can take to better evaluate news, advertisements, and reports are clearly detailed. Ultimately, Levitin turns to what underlies our ability to determine if something is true or false: the scientific method. He grapples with the limits of what we can and cannot know. Case studies are offered to demonstrate the applications of logical thinking to quite varied settings, spanning courtroom testimony, medical decision making, magic, modern physics, and conspiracy theories.This urgently needed book enables us to avoid the extremes of passive gullibility and cynical rejection. As Levitin attests: Truth matters. A post-truth era is an era of willful irrationality, reversing all the great advances humankind has made. Euphemisms like fringe theories, extreme views, alt truth, and even fake news can literally be dangerous. Let''s call lies what they are and catch those making them in the act.

Turning by Jessica J. Lee : INR1096 ISBN: 9780735233263

Longlisted for the 2018 Frank Hegyi Award for Emerging AuthorsThrough the heat of summer to the frozen depths of winter, Lee traces her journey swimming through 52 lakes in a single year, swimming through fear and heartbreak to find her place in the worldJessica J. Lee swims through all four seasons and especially loves the winter. I long for the ice. The sharp cut of freezing water on my feet. The immeasurable black of the lake at its coldest. Swimming then means cold, and pain, and elation.     At the age of twenty-eight, Jessica, who grew up in Canada and lived in England, finds herself in Berlin. Alone. Lonely, with lowered spirits thanks to some family history and a broken heart, she is there, ostensibly, to write a thesis. And though that is what she does daily, what increasingly occupies her is swimming. So she makes a decision that she believes will win her back her confidence and independence: she will swim fifty-two of the lakes around Berlin, no matter what the weather or season. She is aware that this particular landscape is not without its own ghosts and history.     This is the story of a beautiful obsession: of the thrill of a still, turquoise lake, of cracking the ice before submerging, of floating under blue skies, of tangled weeds and murkiness, of cool, fresh, spring swimming—of facing past fears of near-drowning and of breaking free.      When she completes her year of swimming, Jessica finds she has new strength, and she has also found friends and has gained some understanding of how the landscape both haunts and holds us.     This book is for everyone who loves swimming, who wishes they could push themselves beyond caution, who understands the deep pleasure of using the body''s strength, who knows what it is to abandon all thought and float home to the surface.

Mysterious Fragrance Of The Yellow Mountains by Yasuko Thanh : INR978 ISBN: 9780143193265

Winner of the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction PrizeHow can you stand up to tyranny when your own identity is in turmoil?     Vietnam is a haunted country, and Dr. Nguyen Georges-Minh is a haunted man. In 1908, the French maintain an uneasy rule in Saigon, dissent whispering through the corridors of the city. Each day, more Vietnamese rebels are paraded through the streets towards the gleaming blade of the guillotine, now a permanent fixture in the main square and a gruesome warning to those who would attempt to challenge colonial rule.     It is a warning that Georges-Minh will not heed. A Vietnamese national and Paris-educated physician, he is obsessed by guilt over his material wealth and nurses a secret loathing for the French connections that have made him rich, even as they have torn his beloved country apart.     With a close-knit group of his friends calling themselves the Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains, Georges-Minh plots revenge on the French for the savagery they have shown to the Vietnamese. And it falls to Georges-Minh to create a poison to mix into the Christmas dinner of a garrison of French soldiers. It is an act that will send an unmistakable message to the French: Get out of Vietnam.     But the assassination attempt goes horribly wrong. Forced to flee into the deep jungles of the outer provinces, Georges-Minh must care for his infant son, manage the growing madness of his wife, and elude capture by the hill tribes and the small--but lethal--pockets of French sympathizers.     Journey Prize winner Yasuko Thanh transports us into a vivid, historical Vietnam, one that is filled with chaotic streets, teeming marketplaces, squalid opium dens, and angry ghosts that exist side by side with the living.

Valour Road by John Nadler : INR1646 ISBN: 9780670068210

 The First World War lasted for four years and three months. And when it ended on November 11, 1918, the people of Pine Street, a sleepy avenue on the outskirts of Winnipeg, came to a startling realization. During the course of the conflict, young Leo Clarke, Robert Shankland, and Fred Hall, all from their street, had each received the Victoria Cross, the highest award for bravery at that time. Such a phenomenon has never been repeated anywhere in the former British empire.   Accessing original documents in his research—such as the wartime diary of Leo’s brother, Charlie, official war records, and general history—author John Nadler constructs a story of the three heroic soldiers, their families, and the enormous impact of WWI on a young Canada. This historic concurrence was so meaningful that a statue was erected in Winnipeg in tribute to these three ordinary soldiers, and their street was renamed Valour Road in their honour.

Julieta (movie Tie-in Edition) by Alice Munro : INR615 ISBN: 9780735234239

The Three Stories that Inspired the Movie With a foreword by Pedro Almodóvar   Alice Munro is cherished for her exquisite, affecting meditations on the human heart. In these three linked stories, “Chance,” “Soon,” and “Silence”—which, together, inspired Pedro Almodóvar’s film Julieta—her virtuosic talents are once again on display. The stories follow a schoolteacher named Juliet as she is swept up by fate: meeting an older man on a train and starting an affair; later, visiting her parents as a young mother; and later still, searching for contact with her estranged daughter. As with all of Munro’s characters, Juliet radiates warmth, dignity, and hope, even as she is unflinching in the face of betrayal and loss. In Munro’s hands, her journey is as surprising, extraordinary, and precious as life itself.

Life Times by Nadine Gordimer : INR1145 ISBN: 9780143177272

Nadine Gordimer has said that, rather than the coherence suggested by the novel, the experience of human life is more like "the flash of fireflies, in and out, now here, how there, in darkness. Short-story writers see by the light of the flash; theirs is the art of the only thing one can be sure of - the present moment." Now, for the first time, we can see the full range of her outstanding achievement as she explores the borderland between private emotions and the forces of the external world.

The Beaverton Presents Glorious And/or Free by Luke Gordon Field : INR1177 ISBN: 9780735233294

A hilarious tour through Canada''s history, from the nation''s most trusted news source: The Beaverton.There is a new media empire in Canada--and unlike others, it is honest about being fake news. Its satirical headlines have been misinforming Canadians across the country and the world, using parody to shine a light on the nation. What started as an immensely popular online newspaper led to a hit TV show delivering biting commentary on Canadian culture, politics, and the biggest news stories. Now, in its first book, The Beaverton looks back over Canada''s past to show how we became the ridiculous nation we are today.     Through the lens of the venerable Beaverton, one of Canada''s oldest and proudest newspaper, the editors share the headlines and articles that defined the times. From the challenging days of colonization (Angry New France mother calls son by using all of his 329 middle and family names) to the earliest days of nationhood (Paternity test confirms John A. actual father of Confederation), from war heritage (Vimy Ridge: Canada becomes a nation after killing Germans for Britain on French soil) right up to the twenty-first century (Harper government offers apology to victims of first long-form census)--this is Canada like you''ve never seen it.     Part mock-history, part fake scrapbook, and fully illustrated with original art and historical images,* The Beaverton Presents Glorious and/or Free is a hilarious and ruthless stab at our national myths and legends. And, like all great satire, it''s funny because it''s true.     *Some images adjusted to increase historical accuracy

Dark Ambition by Ann Brocklehurst : INR943 ISBN: 9780143198277

The gripping true-crime account of a young Canadian aviation heir charged with three murders--Tim Bosma, ex-girlfriend Laura Babcock, and his own father, Wayne Millard--in what appears to be thrill-seeking serial kills.       In 2013, Tim Bosma of Hamilton, Ontario, put his truck up for sale online, and then disappeared during a test drive with two strangers. In the disappeareance and the murder investigation that followed, he made headlines on over several weeks that spring. Weeks later, two men were arrested for Bosma''s murder: a petty criminal with the Dickensian name of Mark Smich, and Dellen Millard, the good-looking heir of an aviation millionaire.      Disturbingly, there appeared to be no motive for the gruesome killing of Bosma, whose charred remains were found on Millard''s farm. It seemed to be a cold-blooded thrill kill carried out by what some would deem a psychopath and his sidekick. Furthermore, the investigation of Bosma''s death would eventually lead to the discovery of two other murders: the pair would be charged with the murder of Laura Babcock, Millard''s former girlfriend, who disappeared in 2012, and Millard alone would be charged with the murder of his own father, Wayne Millard, whose death was previously ruled a suicide.     Ann Brocklehurst, a Toronto journalist and private investigator, has been fascinated by the Millard case and had a front row seat at the Hamilton murder trial. She provides a compelling look at how detectives, lawyers, and journalists work, as well as the contributions made by the newest participants in the world of crime--online sleuths. Her book asks the question: What makes someone who seemingly has everything--money, a supportive family, mobility, social position--turn to evil deeds? And why do some murders fascinate millions while others go unnoticed?

The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Bartlett Hoover : INR965 ISBN: 9780143168249

People have been collecting—and stealing—books since even before Gutenberg invented the printing press. Internationally, according to Interpol, rare book theft is more widespread than fine art theft. In The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, Allison Hoover Bartlett takes us deep inside the world of rare books and tells the cat-and-mouse story of two men caught in its allure. She introduces us to John Gilkey, an unrepentant, obsessive book thief, and Ken Sanders, the equally obsessive self-styled “bibliodick,” a book-dealer turned amateur detective. While their goals are at direct odds, both men share a deep passion for books and a fierce determination—Gilkey, to steal books; Sanders, to stop him. As Bartlett tells the suspense-filled story of Sanders''s hunt for Gilkey, she also delves into the underlying question of why books have such a lasting fascination for us, collector and lay reader alike.

The Memory Clinic by Tiffany Chow : INR954 ISBN: 9780143186236

Everyone dreads the words “ Alzheimer ’ s disease ” and “ dementia. ” And everyone who  plans to live beyond age sixty-five is at some risk. Dr. Tiffany Chow, a prominent  clinician and neuroscientist, offers knowledge and hope about an illness where  there is, as yet, no cure. Aimed at patients and their families, The Memory Clinic  is a comprehensive and ultimately reassuring work about the prevention and  management of dementia. Chow herself has a genetic legacy of Alzheimer ’ s disease, and she probes what  she — and everyone else — can do to mitigate the impact of genetics through nutrition,  exercise, and the concepts of cerebral reserve and brain plasticity. But it is in  her front-line role managing the suffering caused by dementia and aiding caregivers  where Chow ’ s compassionate voice is most inspiring. She emphasizes that both  patients and caregivers need to feel safe, healthy, happy, and loved, and that meeting  these basic needs daily takes skill at balancing life ’ s demands and is itself part of the  protective shield against dementia ’ s effects. Dr. Chow has written an accessible and fascinating guide through the mysteries of  the brain ’ s deterioration in dementia. And as an empathetic physician who sees the  person behind the symptoms, she offers practical strategies and comfort to both  the afflicted and their caregivers.

In The Rain Ascends, Joy Kogawa beautifully sifts the truth from the past and the sinner from the perceived saint. The result is a sensitive, poetic, yet searing depiction of the wounds left by abuse and the redemption brought by truth.

Shortlisted for the Lionel Gelber PrizeFinalist for the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for NonfictionThe drama that shaped today''s Iran, from the Revolution to the present day In 1979, seemingly overnight, Iran became the first revolutionary theocracy in modern times. Since then, the country has been largely a black box to the West, a sinister presence on the world stage. But inside Iran, a breathtaking drama has unfolded as religious thinkers, political operatives, poets, journalists, and activists have imagined and reimagined what Iran should be. They have drawn as deeply on the traditions of the West as on the East and have acted upon their beliefs with urgency and passion, frequently staking their lives for them.     With more than a decade of experience reporting on, researching, and writing about Iran, Laura Secor narrates this unprecedented history as a story of individuals caught up in the slipstream of their time, seizing and wielding ideas powerful enough to shift their country''s course as they wrestle with Iran''s apparatus of violent repression as well as its rich and often tragic history. Essential reading at this moment when the world has never been more entwined, Children of Paradise will stand as a classic of political reporting, an indelible portrait of a nation and its people striving for change.

It’s late spring 1990, and a love affair is flourishing between Ivor Tesham, a thirty-three-year-old rising star of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government, and Hebe Furnal, a stunning North London housewife stuck in a dull marriage. What excitement Hebe lacks at home, however, is amply compensated by the well-bred and intensely attractive Tesham – an ardent womanizer and ambitious politician.   On the eve of her twenty-eighth birthday, Tesham decides to give Hebe a present to remember: something far more memorable than, say, the costly string of pearls he’s already lavished upon her. Years later, Tesham’s gift will ruin his career, his family, and his life.   Set amid an age of IRA bombings, the first Gulf War, and sleazy politics, The Birthday Present is the gripping story of a fall from grace, and of a man who carries within him all the hypocrisy, greed, and self-obsession of a troubled era.

From Brazil''s most acclaimed young novelist, the mesmerizing story of how a troubled young man''s restorative journey to the seaside becomes a violent struggle with his family''s dark past.     The young man''s father, dying, at last tells him the truth about his grandfather--or at least the truth as he knows it. The mean old gaucho was murdered by some fellow villagers in Garopaba, a town on the Atlantic now famous for its surfing and fishing. It was during a Sunday dance at a community hall. The lights went out suddenly and when they came up, his grandfather was lying in a pool of blood ... or so the story goes. It is as if his father has given him a deathbed challenge. So with no strong ties to his current life, the young man travels up the coast, finds an apartment by the water, and begins to make enquiries. But information doesn''t come easily. A rare neurological condition means that the young man doesn''t recognize the faces of people he''s met. And the people who do know about his grandfather are fearful to give anything away.      Steeped in tension, atmosphere, and the sultry allure of south Brazil, Daniel Galera''s masterfully spare and powerful prose unfolds a story of discovery that feels mythic, elemental, and archetypal.

The Melody by Jim Crace : INR1082 ISBN: 9780735235212

From the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Harvest, Quarantine, and Being Dead, a tender new novel about music, lost love, and the way barely whispered fears and desires push their way into the light. Alfred Busi lives alone in his villa overlooking the waves, with only his trusted piano for company. Famed in his town for his music and songs, he is mourning the recent death of his wife and quietly living out his days--occasionally performing the classics in small venues, though never in the stadiums he could fill when in his prime. On the night before receiving his town''s highest honour, Busi is wrested from his bed by noises in his courtyard, and then stunned by an attacking intruder. His hands and neck are scratched, and his face is bitten. Busi can''t say what it was that he encountered, exactly, but he feels his assailant was neither man nor animal. The attack sets off a chain of events that will cast a shadow on Busi''s career, imperil his home, and alter the fabric of his town. Busi''s own account of what happened is embellished to fan the flames of old rumour--of an ancient race of people living in the surrounding forest--and to spark new controversy: something must finally be done about the town''s poor, the feral vegabonds whose numbers have been growing. Meanwhile Busi, weathering a media storm, must come to terms with his wife''s death and decide whether to sing one last time. The Melody is a story about grief and aging, about reputation and its loss, and the peculiar way myth seeps into real life. In trademark crystalline prose, Jim Crace portrays a man taking stock of his life and looking into an uncertain future, all while bearing witness to a community in the throes of great change--with echoes of today''s most pressing social questions.

Can We Be Good Without God by Robert Buckman : INR1193 ISBN: 9780143051275

Where do our beliefs come from? During prayer or meditation are we communicating with God? Or does the concept of God originate in our own minds? In this wide-ranging book, Dr. Robert Buckman takes us on a journey through the history of human belief, combining philosophy, theology, and new scientific research to discover the origins of religious faith and explore the dilemmas and contradictions of religion in the modern world. Buckman also examines the relationship between beliefs and ethics. Many of us use rules set by our religion to guide our behavior, yet now, more than ever, religious doctrine can seem out of alignment with our sense of ethical conduct. If you don''t believe in God, can you still behave decently and ethically? This revised and updated edition helps us understand not just why we believe, but how our beliefs affect our actions and how a code of ethics can exist without a deity at its center.

The Cure For Everything! by Timothy Caulfield : INR1549 ISBN: 9780670065233

In The Cure for Everything! health-law expert Timothy Caulfield exposes the special interests that twist good science about health and fitness to sell us services and products that mostly don’t work. Want great abs? You won’t get them by using the latest Ab-Flex-Spinner-Thingy. Are you trying to lose ten pounds? Diet books are a waste of trees. Do you rely on healthcare practitioners — either mainstream or alternative — to provide the cure for what ails you? Then beware! Both Big Pharma and naturopathy are powerful twisting forces with products and services to sell. Caulfield doesn’t just talk the talk. He signs up for circuit training with a Hollywood trainer who cultivates the abs of the stars. With his own Food Advisory Team (FAT) made up of specialists in nutrition and diet, he makes a lifestyle change that really works. (Mainly it involves eating less than he is used to eating. Much less.) And when he embarks on a holiday cruise, dreading motion sickness, he takes along both a homeopathic and pharmaceutical remedy—with surprising results. This is a light-hearted book with a serious theme. Caulfield demonstrates that the truth about being healthy is easy to find (but often hard to do).

Fall by Colin Mcadam : INR1549 ISBN: 9780670067206

A place of pressure and contradictions, St Ebury is an exclusive boarding school for the children of Canada’s elite, where boys must act as men while navigating their adolescence; a mixed school with only a handful of girls. Fall is the most beautiful. At night the bathrooms and beds hum with thoughts of her. Noel, a clever, ghostly loner, prowls the corridors on weekends, filling spare hours working on his body-building. Watching her, always knowing where she is and who she’s talking to, he is certain that one day Fall will come to know him deeply. But like everyone else, she is drawn to Julius, the confident and magnetic son of the American ambassador to Canada. At the beginning of their final year, the two boys room together and awkward Noel believes he is allowed into a new circle of friends. Julius grows physically closer to Fall, his eyes open to the moments around him, while Noel’s boisterous enthusiasm shades into something darker as he imagines himself as a confidante to his popular roommate. While Julius moves through the daily joys and absurdities of adolescence, Noel recounts from a distance of several years what the consequences were of his efforts to enter Fall’s life forever. A disturbing and unforgettable story of guilt, memory and confused identity, Colin McAdam’s second novel is a work of power, pitch–perfect observation and searing ambition. It confirms his status as a truly unique talent, one of the few living novelists capable of taking the modern novel and forging from it something startling and wholly new.

The Lost Dream by Steve Simmons : INR1635 ISBN: 9780670065295

  Mike Jefferson started out as a suburban kid who dreamed of making it to the NHL, with parents determined to do anything and everything to make their son’s dream come true. So how did this promising young man’s hockey career turn into a harrowing crime story played out in sensational news reports? Coach and agent David Frost fast-tracked Jefferson’s route to the NHL, but at a staggering cost. Along the way, the affable young man turned against his parents, changed his name to Danton, and descended into a spiral of paranoia and violence that finally cut short the career he had sacrificed everything for when he was arrested for conspiracy to commit murder. In this fast-paced and gripping story, veteran hockey journalist Steve Simmons digs beneath the surface to answer questions that have left Canadians shocked and fascinated. How did Frost get such a grip on Danton and his family? How did Frost work himself into such a position of trust in the world of minor hockey? What exactly was Danton’s relationship with Frost? And who was it that Danton hired a hitman to kill—his father or his agent? Full of the insights from one of Canada’s most-trusted hockey columnists, who is intimately familiar with both minor hockey and the big leagues, The Lost Dream is the story of the dark side of our fascination with a game Canadians love.

Kit's Law by Donna Morrissey : INR1081 ISBN: 9780143170341

It is the Fifties in an isolated outport in Newfoundland. Nothing penetrates this antiquated existence, as television, telephones, cars, even roads, elude the villagers and the only visitors are fog-bound fishermen. Here, outside of Haire’s Hollow, lives 14-year old Kit Pitman with her mentally handicapped mother Josie — both women cared for and protected by the indomitable Lizzie, Kit’s grandmother. The three live a life of some hardship, but much love, punctuated by the change of seasons in the isolated gully where they live. Then a tragic change in their circumstances brings back an old threat — that Josie be sent to an institution and Kit to an orphanage. Advancing this argument is the Reverend Ropson, who from the pulpit decries Josie as the “Gully Tramp.” Defending the women is Doc Hodgson, who brought Kit into the world and knows the secrets of her birth. An uneasy truce is forged, with the Reverend’s son Sid acting as spy and woodcutter, while village women supply food and gossip. Josie delights in Sid’s visits, and Kit grows to love him. There is another menace in Haire’s Hollow — the notorious rapist and killer known as Shine. When Shine attacks Kit in a drunken rage, it sets off a chain of events that leads to further violence and a terrible revelation. Kit and Sid must decide which laws of God and man apply in their despairing world and how much misery they can bear. Kit’s Law is a stunning debut written with the stark rawness of character and landscape of the Rock itself. It evokes the lyrical gifts of E. Annie Proulx, the emotional power of Wally Lamb, and the compelling storytelling of Ann-Marie MacDonald. At its centre is the innocence and determination of Kit herself, a young woman who experiences extremes of pain on the way to redemption. As she says: “It is better to sense nothing at all, to move through the world and glimpse it from a distance, then to split God’s gift in half and live in its underside, with no rays of light dispersing the darkness.”

The World Beyond Your Head by Matthew B. Crawford : INR997 ISBN: 9780143182344

In this brilliant follow-up, Matthew Crawford, author of the bestselling Shop Class As Soulcraft, investigates the challenge of mastering one''s own mindWe often complain about our fractured mental lives and feel beset by outside forces that destroy our focus and disrupt our peace of mind. Any defence against this, Crawford argues, requires that we reckon with the way attention sculpts the self. He examines the intense concentration of hockey players and short-order cooks, the quasi-autistic behaviour of gambling addicts, the familiar hassles of daily life, and the deep, slow craftwork of building pipe organs. He shows that our current crisis of attention is only superficially the result of digital technology and becomes more comprehensible when understood as the culmination of certain assumptions at the root of Western culture that are profoundly at odds with human nature.The World Beyond Your Head makes sense of an astonishing array of familiar phenomena, from the frustrations of airport security to the rise of the hipster. With implications for the way we raise our children, the design of public spaces, and even the survival of democracy, this is a book of urgent relevance to contemporary life.

Hooked by Nir Eyal : INR1450 ISBN: 9780670069323

How do successful companies create products people can''t put down? Why do some products capture widespread attention while others flop? What makes us engage with certain products out of sheer habit? Is there a pattern underlying how technologies hook us? Nir Eyal answers these questions (and many more) by explaining the "Hook Model" -- a four steps process embedded  into the products of many successful companies to subtly encourage customer behavior. Through consecutive “hook  cycles,” these products reach their ultimate goal of bringing users back over and over again, without depending on  costly advertising or aggressive messaging. Hooked is based on Eyal’s years of research, consulting, and practical experience. He wrote the book he wished had  been available to him as a startup founder – not abstract theory, but a how-to guide for building better products.  Hooked is written for product managers, designers, marketers, startup founders, and anyone who seeks to understand  how products influence our behavior. Eyal provides readers with: Practical insights to create user habits that stick. Actionable steps for building products people love. Fascinating examples from the iPhone to Twitter, Pinterest to the Bible App, and many other habit-forming products.

Meltdown by Chris Clearfield : INR1194 ISBN: 9780735233324

A groundbreaking take on how complexity causes failure in all kinds of modern systems—from social media to air travel—this practical and entertaining book reveals how we can prevent meltdowns in business and life.A crash on the Washington, D.C. metro system. An accidental overdose in a state-of-the-art hospital. An overcooked holiday meal. At first glance, these disasters seem to have little in common. But surprising new research shows that all these events—and the myriad failures that dominate headlines every day—share similar causes. By understanding what lies behind these failures, we can design better systems, make our teams more productive, and transform how we make decisions at work and at home.     Weaving together cutting-edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the frontlines of the Volkswagen scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest, Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik explain how the increasing complexity of our systems creates conditions ripe for failure and why our brains and teams can''t keep up. They highlight the paradox of progress: Though modern systems have given us new capabilities, they''ve become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns—and even to corruption and misconduct.     But Meltdown isn''t just about failure; it''s about solutions—whether you''re managing a team or the chaos of your family''s morning routine. It reveals why ugly designs make us safer, how a five-minute exercise can prevent billion-dollar catastrophes, why teams with fewer experts are better at managing risk, and why diversity is one of our best safeguards against failure. The result is an eye-opening, empowering, and entirely original book—one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it.

The Ministry Of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy : INR1694 ISBN: 9780735234345

2017 Man Booker Prize Longlist2018 Women''s Prize for Fiction LonglistThe Ministry of Utmost Happiness is a dazzling new novel by the internationally celebrated author of The God of Small Things. It takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent—from the cramped neighborhoods of Old Dehli and the roads of the new city to the mountains and valleys of Kashmir and beyond, where war is peace and peace is war.      It is an aching love story and a decisive remonstration, a story told in a whisper, in a shout, through unsentimental tears and sometimes with a bitter laugh. Each of its characters is indelibly, tenderly rendered. Its heroes are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, patched together by acts of love—and by hope.      The tale begins with Anjum—who used to be Aftab—unrolling a threadbare Persian carpet in a city graveyard she calls home. We encounter the odd, unforgettable Tilo and the men who loved her—including Musa, sweetheart and ex-sweetheart, lover and ex-lover; their fates are as entwined as their arms used to be and always will be. We meet Tilo''s landlord, a former suitor, now an intelligence officer posted to Kabul. And then we meet the two Miss Jebeens: the first a child born in Srinagar and buried in its overcrowded Martyrs'' Graveyard; the second found at midnight, abandoned on a concrete sidewalk in the heart of New Delhi.      As this ravishing, deeply humane novel braids these richly complex lives together, it reinvents what a novel can do and can be. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy''s storytelling gifts.

The History Of Canada Series - The Last Act by Ron Graham : INR1065 ISBN: 9780143053354

In November 1981, in what has been called the most important conference since the Fathers of Confederation got together in Quebec City in 1864, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau met behind closed doors in Ottawa with the ten premiers. It was the culmination of more than five decades of political wrangling, one last attempt to renew the constitution with the consent of the provinces. Given the threat of Quebec independence, the ambitions of Western Canada, and the provinces’ demands for more power, failure seemed the most likely result. But Trudeau was determined to make Canadians fully independent and to entrench a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. What happened that day still reverberates. It severed the last important link to Canada’s colonial past. It guaranteed individual liberty and minority rights in the future. It gave ownership of the constitution to Canadians. But it came at a price. In The Last Act, Ron Graham delivers a vivid account of the fractious debates and secret negotiations, based on newly uncovered documents and the candid recollections of many of the key participants.

He lives with his paraplegic mother and her dog in Rio de Janeiro, he doesn''t have many friends, and the only time he feels honest human emotion is in the presence of his medical school cadaver--that is, until he meets Clarice. She''s almost his exact opposite: exotic, spontaneous, unafraid to speak her mind. She''s working on a screenplay called Perfect Days about three friends who go on a road trip across Brazil in search of romance. Teo begins to stalk her, first following to her university, then to her home, and when she ultimately rejects him, Teo kidnaps her, and they embark upon their very own twisted odyssey across Brazil, tracing the same route outlined in her screenplay. Through it all, Teo is certain that time is all he needs to prove to Clarice that they are made for each other, that time is all he needs to make her fall in love with him. But as the journey progresses, he keeps digging himself deeper, stopping at nothing to ensure that no one gets in the way of their life together. Both tense and lurid, and brimming with suspense from the very first page, Perfect Days is a psychological thriller in the vein of The Talented Mr. Ripley--a chilling journey in the passenger seat with a psychopath and the English-language debut of one of Brazil''s most deliciously dark young writers.

The Ministry Of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy : INR1020 ISBN: 9780735234369

Humane and sensuous, beautifully told, The Ministry of Utmost Happinessdemonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy''s storytelling gifts.     How to tell a shattered story?By slowly becoming everybody.No.By slowly becoming everything.       With stories told in a whisper, in a shout, through unsentimental tears and sometimes with a bitter laugh, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent, as it braids together an aching love story and a decisive remonstration with characters who are as indelible as they are tenderly rendered.      We meet Anjum, a hijra, as she unrolls her threadbare carpet on the floor of the cemetery in Old Delhi she calls home, while many miles away, we encounter the captivating Tilo, and the three men who in turn are captivated by her. On a concrete sidewalk, a baby suddenly appears, just after midnight, while in a snowy valley, a bereaved father writes a letter to his five-year-old daughter about the people who came to her funeral. In a second-floor apartment, a lone woman chain-smokes as she reads through her old notebooks.     Roy entwines these stories together to reveal people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, patched together by acts of love--and most especially, by hope. Beautiful in its telling, vivid in its detail, and breathtaking in its scope, with The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, Roy has reinvented what a novel can do and can be.

Pipe Dreams by Jacques Poitras : INR1642 ISBN: 9780735233355

A timely chronicle of how Canada''s oil pipelines have become hotbeds for debate about our energy future, Indigenous rights, environmental activism, and east-west political tensions. Pipe Dreams is the dramatic story of the rise and fall of the Energy East pipeline and the broader battle over climate and energy in Canada. The project was to be a monumental undertaking, beginning near Edmonton, AB, and stretching over four thousand kilometres, through Montreal to the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John, NB. Conceived as a back-up plan for the stalled Keystone XL pipeline, it became the crucible for a national debate over the future of oil. In a cross-country journey, Poitras talked to industry executives, prairie ranchers, First Nations chiefs, mayors, premiers, cabinet ministers, and refinery workers. He also explored Canada''s perplexing oil relationship with the United States: our industry is literally tied to its American counterpart with sinews of steel. The Energy East pipeline represented a new direction, designed to get Alberta oil sands crude to lucrative world markets. Yet it was promoted in explicitly nationalist terms: the country was said to be reorienting itself along its east-west axis, tying itself together, again, with a great feat of engineering. By the time the journey ended, the story had become a kind of whodunit: Poitras witnessed the slow-motion killing of the fifteen billion dollar project. Unfolding in tandem with clashes over the Trans Mountain pipeline, Energy East''s demise heralded a potential turning point not just for a single proposal, but for Canada''s carbon economy.Entertaining, informative, and insightful, Pipe Dreams offers a clear picture of the complicated political, environmental, and economic issues that Canadians face.

Penguin History Of Canada by Robert Bothwell : INR1066 ISBN: 9780143050322

Canada is in many ways a country of limits, a paradox for a place that enjoys virtually unlimited space. Most of that space is uninhabited, and much of it is uninhabitable. It is a country with a huge north but with most of its population in the south, hugging the U.S. border. An uneasy and difficult country, Canada has nevertheless defied the odds: it remains, in the 21st century, a haven of peace and a beacon of prosperity. Erudite yet accessible and marked by narrative flair, The Penguin History of Canada paints an expansive portrait of a dynamic and complex country.

Algorithms To Live By by Brian Christian : INR530 ISBN: 9780670068319

A fascinating exploration of how computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives, helping to solve common decision-making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mindAll our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favourites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades. And the solutions they''ve found have much to teach us.     In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, acclaimed author Brian Christian (who holds degrees in computer science, philosophy, and poetry, and works at the intersection of all three) and Tom Griffiths (a UC Berkeley professor of cognitive science and psychology) show how the simple, precise algorithms used by computers can also untangle very human questions. They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance, how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others. From finding a spouse to finding a parking spot, from organizing one''s inbox to understanding the workings of human memory, Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living.

Orr by Bobby Orr : INR941 ISBN: 9780143184324

 One of the greatest sports figures of all time at last breaks his silence in a memoir as unique as the man himself. Number 4. It is just about the most common number in hockey, but invoke that number and you can only be talking about one player -- the man often referred to as the greatest ever to play the game: Bobby Orr.  From 1966 through the mid-70s he could change a game just by stepping on the ice.  Orr could do things that others simply couldn’t, and while teammates and opponents alike scrambled to keep up, at times they could do little more than stop and watch. Many of his records still stand today and he remains the gold standard by which all other players are judged.  Mention his name to any hockey fan – or to anyone in New England – and a look of awe will appear. But skill on the ice is only a part of his story. All of the trophies, records, and press clippings leave unsaid as much about the man as they reveal. They tell us what Orr did, but don’t tell us what inspired him, who taught him, or what he learned along the way. They don’t tell what it was like for a shy small-town kid to become one of the most celebrated athletes in the history of the game, all the while in the full glare of the media. They don’t tell us what it was like when the agent he regarded as his brother betrayed him and left him in financial ruin, at the same time his battered knee left him unable to play the game he himself had redefined only a few seasons earlier. They don’t tell about the players and people he learned to most admire along the way. They don’t tell what he thinks of the game of hockey today. Orr himself has never put all this into words, until now. After decades of refusing to speak of his past in articles or “authorized” biographies, he finally tells his story, because he has something to share: “I am a parent and a grandparent and I believe that I have lessons worth passing along.” In the end, this is not just a book about hockey. The most meaningful biographies and memoirs rise above the careers out of which they grew. Bobby Orr’s life goes far deeper than Stanley Cup rings, trophies and recognitions. His story is not only about the game, but also the age in which it was played. It’s the story of a small-town kid who came to define its highs and lows, and inevitably it is a story of the lessons he learned along the way.

My Parents / This Does Not Belong To You by Aleksandar Hemon : INR1509 ISBN: 9780735238381

An intimate portrait of immigration, family, and the heartbreaking (and sometimes hilarious) things that happen along the way from the author Colum McCann calls the greatest writer of our generation.In My Parents, Aleksandar Hemon tells the story of his parents'' immigration from Bosnia to Canada--of the lives that were upended in the Siege of Sarajevo and the new lives his parents were forced to build. As ever with his work, Hemon portrays both the perfect, intimate details (his mother''s lonely upbringing, his father''s fanatical beekeeping) and a sweeping, heartbreaking history of his native country, from the rule of Otto von Bismarck to the massacres that shocked the world. It is a story full of many Hemons, of course--his parents, sister, uncles, cousins--and also of German occupying forces, Yugoslav communist revolutionary partisans, royalist Serb collaborators, and a few befuddled Canadians.That would be enough to astound readers and yet Hemon also shares an untampered series of beautifully distilled memories and observations titled This Does Not Belong to You, the perfect complement to a major work from a major writer who is about to become unignorable.

Meltdown by Chris Clearfield : INR1087 ISBN: 9780735233348

A groundbreaking take on how complexity causes failure in all kinds of modern systems—from social media to air travel—this practical and entertaining book reveals how we can prevent meltdowns in business and life.A crash on the Washington, D.C. metro system. An accidental overdose in a state-of-the-art hospital. An overcooked holiday meal. At first glance, these disasters seem to have little in common. But surprising new research shows that all these events—and the myriad failures that dominate headlines every day—share similar causes. By understanding what lies behind these failures, we can design better systems, make our teams more productive, and transform how we make decisions at work and at home.     Weaving together cutting-edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the frontlines of the Volkswagen scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest, Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik explain how the increasing complexity of our systems creates conditions ripe for failure and why our brains and teams can''t keep up. They highlight the paradox of progress: Though modern systems have given us new capabilities, they''ve become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns—and even to corruption and misconduct.     But Meltdown isn''t just about failure; it''s about solutions—whether you''re managing a team or the chaos of your family''s morning routine. It reveals why ugly designs make us safer, how a five-minute exercise can prevent billion-dollar catastrophes, why teams with fewer experts are better at managing risk, and why diversity is one of our best safeguards against failure. The result is an eye-opening, empowering, and entirely original book—one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it.

The World Beyond Your Head by Matthew B. Crawford : INR424 ISBN: 9780670066391

 The key to personal choice, and even happiness, is to gain control of our attention—our mental lives. Matthew Crawford is the author of Shop Class as Soulcraft, which challenged our notions about what we do and how it affects our sense of self (and our happiness). This new book addresses the crisis of attention: where we focus -- or cannot focus--equally affects our sense of self. As our mental lives become more fragmented, what is at stake often seems to be nothing less than the question of whether one can maintain a coherent self .  The key to a better life then is to get command not just of one’s physical environment, but of one’s mental life, too. Like Shop Class as Soulcraft, Crawford uses case studies as well as entertaining musings from his own personal observations to describe the fundamental shift surrounding attention that is happening in our culture. From making a surfboard, to parenting, to anxiously navigating the inside of an airport—all provide clues to a phenomenon that we increasingly experience, but could not put into words, until now. An accessible and food for thought kind of look at what our difficulties with attention mean for us as free thinking people.

Fikry:Named a Washington Post Notable Work of Fiction of 2017A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the YearA Chatelaine Best Fall Reads pick#1 on the August Library Reads listAn Entertainment Weekly’s “13 Books to Read in August”An Amazon’s “Best Books of the Month” for AugustA Barnes & Noble “August’s Best New Fiction” pick#3 on the September Indie Next List Aviva Grossman is a bright, ambitious congressional intern with a promising political future ahead of her until she makes the mistake of having an affair with her very married boss … and writing what she thinks is an anonymous blog about it. When the affair dramatically comes to light, it’s not the popular congressman who takes the fall, it’s Aviva—and her life suddenly seems over before it’s hardly begun. Slut-shamed and hounded by the media, she becomes a late-night talk show punchline. Determined to rebuild her life on her own terms, Aviva changes her name, moves from Florida to a small town in Maine, starts her own wedding planning business … and decides to continue a surprise pregnancy.   But when “Jane” decides to run for public office, that long-ago mistake—an inescapable scarlet A—trails her via the Internet, threatening to derail her life yet again. It’s only a matter of time until her daughter finds out who her mother once was—and is forced to reconcile that person with the one she thinks she knows …   Young Jane Young is a smart, funny, and extremely timely novel which exposes the myriad ways we shame, forgive, and love one another. Just as she did in The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, the superbly talented Gabrielle Zevin has created a cast of unforgettable characters: an ambitious yet naive twenty-something, a mother attempting to steer her daughter through a judgmental world, a veteran political wife facing the hard truth that fidelity isn’t always rewarded, and a young girl who feels bold about her choices before she realizes the restrictions all around her. Not only does Zevin skewer the inherent double standards in women’s everyday lives, she also explores the true meaning of resilience—and, ultimately, forgiveness.

Under The Visible Life by Kim Echlin : INR833 ISBN: 9780143178330

“I lost count of how many times I was caught off-guard by the poignancy of this novel . . . This story of motherhood and friendship, anchored by two extraordinary heroines, will stay with me for a long time.”—Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite RunnerA love song to music itself. - The Globe and Mail Fatherless Katherine carries the stigma of her mixed-race background through an era that is hostile to her and all she represents.  It is only through music that she finds the freedom to temporarily escape and dream of a better life for herself, nurturing this hard-won refuge throughout the vagaries of unexpected motherhood and an absent husband, and relying on her talent to build a future for her family. Orphaned Mahsa also grows up in the shadow of loss, sent to relatives in Pakistan after the death of her parents. Struggling to break free, she escapes to Montreal, leaving behind her first love, Kamal. But the threads of her past are not so easily severed, and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa, too, music becomes her solace and allows her to escape from her oppressive circumstances.When Katherine and Mahsa meet, they find in each other a kindred spirit as well as a musical equal, and their lives are changed irrevocably. Together, they inspire and support one another, fusing together their cultures, their joys, and their losses—just as they collaborate musically in the language of free-form, improvisational jazz.Under the Visible Life takes readers from the bustling harbour of Karachi to the palpable political tension on the streets of 1970s Montreal to the smoky jazz clubs of New York City.  Deeply affecting, vividly rendered, and sweeping in scope, it is also an exploration of the hearts of two unforgettable women: a meditation on how hope can remain alive in the darkest of times when we have someone with whom to share our burdens.

Against this tumultuous backdrop the lives of men and women unfold on the borderlands--where empires and faiths collide.From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist travelling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request--and possibly to do more--and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman, posing as a doctor''s wife, but sent by Seressa as a spy.     The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he''s been born to live. And further east, a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif--to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.     As these lives entwine, their fates--and those of many others--will hang in the balance, when the khalif sends his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world...

The Undeclared War by James Laxer : INR1049 ISBN: 9780140267334

Not since the Second World War has there been such a gulf in wealth, income and power between the rich and the rest of the population of Canada. The fight against the deficit has been largely won and economic growth has resumed, but a deeply divided society is emerging. On the one side are the winners-the small minority who have struck it rich from corporate profits and stock markets. On the other side is the majority-facing meagre gains or even losses in income. Conflict between the classes has returned with a vengeance to become the most important issue of our time. In The Undeclared War, James Laxer cuts through the headlines and the conventional interpretations to reveal the truth about the new class war and what it means for North Americans.

Riding With Rilke by Ted Bishop : INR1145 ISBN: 9780143051312

English professor and motorcycle enthusiast Ted Bishop is taking one last ride before fall term when his bike vibrates out of control and he is flung into a ditch, breaking his back and collapsing his lungs. With limited mobility, Ted finally has time to savour the reading experience. He begins writing about his crash, realizing that two worlds had come together when his head hit the pavement. The more he thinks about it, the more it seems that archival work is the inverse, not the opposite, of motorcycling. Ultimately, what surrounds both reader and rider is silence. In Riding with Rilke, Ted Bishop takes us on the road through some of the richest landscapes in North America and Europe, with numerous stops along the way. Whether describing the archival jolt of holding Virginia Woolf''s suicide note in the British Library or the outlaw thrill of cruising Main Street in small-town America on a bike nicknamed “Il Mostro,” Bishop tells a story filled with insight and humour.

Listening To Grasshoppers by Arundhati Roy : INR859 ISBN: 9780143173373

This series of essays examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India. It looks closely at how religious majoritarianism, cultural nationalism and neo-fascism simmer just under the surface of a country that projects itself as the world''s largest democracy. Beginning with the state-backed pogrom against Muslims in Gujarat in 2002, Arundhati Roy writes about how the combination of Hindu Nationalism and India''s Neo-liberal economic reforms which began their journey together in the early 1990s are now turning India into a police state. She describes the systematic marginalization of religious and ethnic minorities – Muslim, Christian, Adivasi and Dalit, the rise of terrorism and the massive scale of displacement and dispossession of the poor by predatory corporations. The collection ends with an account of the of the August 2008 uprising of the people of Kashmir against India''s military occupation and an analysis of the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai. Listening to Grasshoppers tracks the fault-lines that threaten to destroy India''s precarious democracy and send shockwaves through the region and beyond.

The Reason You Walk by Wab Kinew : INR1509 ISBN: 9780670069347

A moving father-son reconciliation told by a charismatic First Nations broadcaster, musician and activist.          When his father was given a diagnosis of terminal cancer, Winnipeg broadcaster and musician Wab Kinew decided to spend a year reconnecting with the accomplished but distant aboriginal man who''d raised him. The Reason You Walk spans the year 2012, chronicling painful moments in the past and celebrating renewed hopes and dreams for the future. As Kinew revisits his own childhood in Winnipeg and on a reserve in Northern Ontario, he learns more about his father''s traumatic childhood at residential school. An intriguing doubleness marks The Reason You Walk, a reference to an Anishinaabe ceremonial song. Born to an Anishinaabe father and a non-native mother, he has a foot in both cultures. He is a Sundancer, an academic, a former rapper, a hereditary chief, and an urban activist. His father, Tobasonakwut, was both a beloved traditional chief and a respected elected leader who engaged directly with Ottawa. Internally divided, his father embraced both traditional native religion and Catholicism, the religion that was inculcated into him at the residential school where he was physically and sexually abused. In a grand gesture of reconciliation, Kinew''s father invited the Roman Catholic bishop of Winnipeg to a Sundance ceremony in which he adopted him as his brother. Kinew writes affectingly of his own struggles in his twenties to find the right path, eventually giving up a self-destructive lifestyle to passionately pursue music and martial arts. From his unique vantage point, he offers an inside view of what it means to be an educated aboriginal living in a country that is just beginning to wake up to its aboriginal history and living presence.      Invoking hope, healing and forgiveness, The Reason You Walk is a poignant story of a towering but damaged father and his son as they embark on a journey to repair their family bond. By turns lighthearted and solemn, Kinew gives us an inspiring vision for family and cross-cultural reconciliation, and a wider conversation about the future of aboriginal peoples.

The Road Narrows As You Go by Lee Henderson : INR954 ISBN: 9780143172369

 All Wendy Ashbubble has ever wanted is to draw comics as well as Charles Schultz’s Peanuts —and to one day see her creations grace the pages of a major daily newspaper. Growing up in Victoria in the 1970s, Wendy dreams of getting out, getting away … and getting recognition for her talent. And there’s another, never-whispered motivation that prompts her to seek her fortune: a deeply buried memory and unshakeable belief that her unknown father is Ronald Reagan, the fortieth president of the United States.   A chance meeting in Victoria with an attractive-but-mysterious travelling artist inspires Wendy to take the plunge, and she runs away to live in a dilapidated artists’ commune in San Francisco. There, amid the haze of top-quality weed, unbridled creativity, and unfettered sex, her dream begins to take tangible shape. With the aid of Frank Fleecen, an up-and-coming bonds trader and agent, Wendy’s Strays are soon competing for newsprint space against the likes of Berkeley Breathed, Jim Davis, and Bill Watterston … even against Wendy’s beloved Charles Schultz himself.   But there are darker shades on the pencilled horizon: the spectre of AIDS, unexplained disappearances, bad therapy, junk bonds, demonology, and SEC agents investigating Frank’s business protocols.   The Road Narrows As You Go is simultaneously the portrait of a young woman struggling to find her place and a bright, rollicking, unflinching depiction of the 1980s. It embodies all the brash optimism and ruthless amoralism of the decade, as well as its preoccupation with repressed memories, and fully captures the flavour of an uncertain but deeply vibrant era.

Regret The Error by Craig Silverman : INR1431 ISBN: 9780670067305

We Regret the Error. It''s a phrase that appears daily in newspapers — the standard admission that something has gone terribly wrong in the reporting, editing, or printing of an article. This brief notice is generally accompanied by an equally terse correction. But Craig Silverman – editor of RegretTheError.com, one of the Internet''s most popular media-related Web sites — goes beyond the stale boilerplate to ask key questions that concern everyone who follows the news, both print and broadcast: What is the wellspring of this flood of errors? What can be done to minimize mistakes? Does this culture of error degrade our media-driven society? The resulting answers make for a lively journey through the history of media mistakes, punctuated with a collection of funny, shocking, and often disturbing journalistic slip-ups. The errors are often hilarious, while others are calamitous and even tragic. By pinpointing numerous categories of error (including “Fuzzy Numbers” — when numbers and math undermine reporting; “Obiticide” – printing the obituary of a living person; and “Unidentified Consequences” — typos and misidentifications that create a new, incorrect reality), Silverman shines a bright light on the media''s carelessness. Conceding that errors are often inadvertent, the author finds nonetheless that they are occasionally rooted in serious ethical lapses. He chronicles the decline of fact-checking at magazines and the simultaneous rise of fact-checking readers and interest groups, and voices a rousing call to arms for all news organizations to mend their ways and reclaim the role of the press as the honest voice of the people. Regret the Error is a book for anyone who follows the news, and for everyone who insists that our free speech be safeguarded by a vigilant press.

The Memory Clinic by Tiffany Chow : INR1006 ISBN: 9780670066322

Dr. Tiffany Chow offers knowledge and hope for an illness where there is, as yet, no cure. “This book is a summary of what I’ve learned through my research or from my colleagues about prevention and management of dementia,” says the empathetic doctor. “Even where there is a family history of Alzheimer’s disease, people at risk can do things to prevent its onset or progression.” Through her grandmother Ah Quan, born in 1906 in Hawaii of Chinese ancestry, Chow has a genetic legacy of Alzheimer’s disease. Comparing her life with her grandmother’s, she probes what she and other women can do to mitigate the impact of genetics through nutrition, exercise, and through the concepts of cerebral reserve and brain plasticity. But it is in her front-line role managing the suffering caused by dementia and aiding caregivers where Chow’s compassionate voice is most inspiring. The Memory Clinic is instructive and reassuring, and is a fascinating guide through the mysterious twists of the brain.

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini : INR1063 ISBN: 9780143054405

After more than two years on the bestseller lists and over four million copies in print, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel of enormous contemporary relevance. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years—from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding—that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives—the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness—are inextricable from the history playing out around them. Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love—a stunning accomplishment.

The information age is drowning us in an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we’re expected to make more—and faster—decisions about our lives than ever before. No wonder, then, that the average person reports frequently losing car keys or reading glasses, missing appointments, and feeling worn out by the effort required just to keep up. But somehow some people become quite accomplished at managing information flow. In The Organized Mind, Daniel J. Levitin, Ph.D., uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how those people excel—and how readers can use these methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and lives. With lively, entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to gambling in Las Vegas, Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to daily life. His practical suggestions call for relatively minor changes that require little effort but will have remarkable long-term benefits for mental and physical health, productivity, and creativity. This Is Your Brain on Music showed us how to better play and appreciate music through an understanding of how the brain works. The Organized Mind shows us how to navigate the churning flow of information in our daily lives with the same neuroscientific perspective.
