All Lit Up Press Picks for the Holidays: Guernica Editions
Based out of Hamilton, Ontario, Guernica Editions is known for a robust local and international publishing program. Their publicist Crystal serves up three gift-worthy books for the holiday season in this Press Picks feature.
Faithfully Seeking Franz by Elana Wolff
“Okay…I will confess I didn’t know who Franz Kafka was (gasp!) But after reading Faithfully Seeking Franz by Elana Wolf, I not only know her Prague-born, German-speaking mentor, but I am under Elana’s spell. Can you imagine being so inspired by an author that you embarked on a quest visiting the places where they lived, wrote, vacationed, convalesced, and passed away? I recommend Faithfully Seeking Franz because the depth of Elana’s passion is contagious; her personal essays made me feel like I was travelling along with her on her Kafka journey.”

The B-Side of Daniel Garneau by David Kingston Yeh
“I’ve read a LOT of books, but before protagonist Daniel Garneau I had never read a gay rom-com! The B-side of Daniel Garneau is the third installment in the misadventures of Daniel and his boyfriend David, and I feel like my reading world has been gloriously busted open by the brilliant David Kingston Yeh. I recommend this book, this series, to all readers who want to immerse themselves in a rollicking love story this holiday season.”

The Confessions of Joseph Blanchard by Ian Colford
“If you want to read a book that stays with you long after you’ve finished it, then I recommend The Confessions of Joseph Blanchard by Ian Colford, our 2022 Guernica Prize Winner! I can’t stop thinking about this book. Obsessive love, sexual transgression, and tragic loss – need I say more?”
