Books we recommend from Book*hug Press for your giftee to unwrap

Why we love this book: We, Jane is a fierce and propulsive Giller Prize-longlisted novel about intergenerational female relationships, reproductive rights, and finding home. It beautifully captures the magnitude of women’s friendships and the importance of care work by women for women. It’s a seriously good read. We, Jane.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. 
Why we love this book: Phantompains is a visceral, dreamlike collection of poems that explores disability, grief, and life. In these poems, author Therese Estacion candidly attempts to deal with the trauma of surviving a rare infection that resulted in the loss of both her legs below the knees, several fingers, and reproductive organs, and to find a way to move forward after loss.Phantompains.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. 
Why we love this book: Tongues: On Longing and Belonging Through Language is a collection of deeply personal essays from twenty-six writers exploring their connection with language, accents, and vocabularies. The contributors are a brilliant mix of voices in CanLit—Amanda Leduc, Sadiqa de Meijer, Téa Mutonji, Danny Ramadan to name a few—and offer a truly refreshing and nuanced consideration of the complexities of language, identity, and lived experiences. This is an exciting anthology for anyone who gives thought to the way in which language shapes and connects us.TonguesWhere do I find the book?
