Just Pervs by Jess Taylor (Book*Hug Press)Get it on this weekend with this newly released short story collection from author Jess Taylor. Within the pages of Just Pervs, sex addicts, pervy friends, murder and doggy infidelity all come together to show us that while sex can be many things, the one thing it always is, is complicated.
Devil in the Woodsby D.A. Lockhart (Brick Books)The fourth collection from D.A. Lockhart includes letters and prayer poems to share the experiences of an Anishnaabe guy interacting with famous non-Indigenous Canadians from Don Cherry to Emily Carr. Through Indigenous poetics, this collection pushes back against the dominant view of Canadian political and pop-culture history–and in it’s lyrics creates space for ignored voices and a view of a decolonized nation.
The Story of My Face by Kathy Page (Biblioasis)Powerful yet elegant, The Story of My Face follows the story of respected academic Natalie Baron as she struggles to come to grips with her past, which is haunted by a dangerous secret and involvement within a curious Protestant sect. Pick this one up if you like a book with a punchy ending.
