Books we recommend from Coach House Books for your giftee to unwrap

 

 

unwrap ring blog

Why we love this book: Like his multiple-award-winning Fifteen Dogs, André Alexis's final novel in his Quincunx series is another fantastical, subversive tale about the nature of things. Set against the backdrop of Toronto—from Rosedale to Parkdale, the Gardiner Ceramics Museum to Nathan Phillips Square—Ring is an urban fairytale about a budding romance and a ring that grants the bearer a chance to change three things about her beloved, asking us to question: is the ring a curse or a gift?

Read a full description of Ring here.

Where do I find the book?  Find it on All Lit Up for 15% off until Nov 28 or from your local indie bookseller with our Shop Local feature available on the book page. 

 

 

ink earl_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: ink earl is for the poetry reader on your list who loves a good blackout poem or ten, like us. Starting out with the ad copy for the iconic Paper Mate Pink Pearl eraser, Susan Holbrook rubs away at the source text to reapply in its place queer love poems, songs, political commentary, and more. This is a collection that takes erasure to exploratory places.

any night of the week_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: Toronto's music scene booms in this time capsule of the city's place among North America's great music cities. Broken Social Scene and Ghetto Concept, live venues, and the people devoted to fostering a music community feature to reveal how Toronto builds up its artists and collaborators. Written by Jonny Dovercourt, a force in Toronto music culture, Any Night of the Week: A D.I.Y. History of Toronto Music, 1957-2001 is where music and history intersect for a fascinating overview of collective creativity.
