Review in the Kelowna Daily Courier, November 7, 2014
Interview and excerpt in Yukon, North of Ordinary magazine, Winter 2014 edition

Notable Reviews

“A lifetime of research and effort went into this labour of love, which reads both as a memoir and true-crime story...A Rock Fell on the Moon is an intensely personal story that lays bare a little-known slice of the Canadian frontier. It’s also a gripping read.”
~ Don Plant, The Kelowna Daily Courier, November 7, 2014

“A beautifully written memoir that evokes a Canada long past, and that left me in tears.”
~ Andrew Nikiforuk, The Tyee, October 31, 2014

“A ripping good read...Heart-breaking, hilarious and suspenseful...This is a consummately well-written book, achieving the near-impossible feat of maintaining a journalist’s objective distance while literally tracking her father’s fifty-year-old footsteps and disclosing painful family secrets with restraint and dignity.”

Notable Reviews

“A series of 15 gritty and challenging tales concerning the quiet struggles of working-class people, past and present, in Comox Valley, B.C. Rader is at his strongest when he writes about the male mistrust of language, and the subtle yet inherent violence of sex.”
~ Stacey Madden, Quill & Quire, November 2014

“quirky and superbly crafted first collection from Vancouver Island writer Matt Rader...What I Want to Tell Goes Like This delivers dynamic storytelling with a twist. And if, like James Joyce, “The story he wanted to write would take several years to fully arrive,” Matt Rader is one to watch—and read—now.”

“Woo’s poems extend far beyond the individual and cultural, morphing into meta-poems that showcase the power of language to heal and inspire... And like a mesmerizing song, her book is one to be savoured slowly, again and again, creating a different impression with each reading.”

The Boreal Feast will leave your mouth watering!”
~ Ottawa Life magazine

“A milestone compendium that includes both mouthwatering recipes...and vivid evocations of how they’re enjoyed across the region (the book’s handsome photos were shot by Cathie Archbould), leaves no mossy stone unturned in the pursuit of gastronomic exotica.”

“If fish could sing, they'd surely croon many a good tune for retired fishery officer Randy Nelson… 
Delivered in Nelson's light-hearted and entertaining way, it offers the reader a rare glimpse into the serious business of wildlife protection, and the sometimes frustrating bureaucracy within the federal fisheries department.”

“…Her language is direct and straightforward, forcefully specific, as she squeezes, muscles and manipulates the various and ever-changing constellation of gendered expectations she encounters…Rosnau has a complex, sometimes embattled relationship with sex and gender, but she also fiercely defends and deeply explores it…”

Notable Reviews

“Fluid and intimate...Diane Tucker digs deep into the darkest and most beautiful aspects of humanity’s relation to art, music, and literature...In Bonsai Love, even the most eloquent moments can be violent. Tucker creates a melancholy so bittersweet it seems to resound endlessly with its empty, but ever-present, pain: “my life / a blue-lit nightmare / into which you blundered.” Tucker sweetly mocks our habits, our desire to put a pin in the stars and “learn / without maps.” The effect is both loving and jarring, both comforting and cruel. We feel alone and in communion when reading Bonsai Love; the experience is spiritual and intimate, but ultimately it tears us from the comfort of our past selves.”
~ CV2 Magazine, September 2014

“Burnaby writer Diane Tucker's fourth book of poetry, full of everyday yet newly experienced images, conveys strong and universal emotions. Tucker's spare yet always sensual poetry seems to vibrate with her sense of fulfillment, loss and longing.”
~Annie Boulanger, Burnaby Now, June 2014

Notable Reviews

“Illustrated by the much-honoured and beloved artist Roy Henry Vickers, Cloudwalker is a visually glorious book. Vickers and oral historian Robert Budd joined forces on last year’s lauded Raven Brings the Light, and with this follow-up—part of a series retelling First Nations legends of the Pacific Northwes—the duo once again uses a human character’s supernatural experiences to explain the origin of a natural element…
“A picture book, an ecologically minded adaptation of a traditional legend, and an art book all in one, Cloudwalker can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.”

“Rhodes dismisses the entire academic class of Canuck bards who look to Europe or Asia for their tutelage rather than face our “native” heritage of oppression…. I admire the radical sport of Rhodes’ lyrics and I admit my total support of his politics…Rhodes takes us down twisty, dangerous roads — of conscience and consciousness, forcing us to recognize the sins of our Confederation.”

Reading at the Cascadia Poetry Festival in Nanaimo, BC, which runs April 30 to May 3, 2015. Final dates/times TBA

Notable Reviews

In Antarctica is a beautiful melding of the personal and the public, the past and the present, research and emotion. Ruzesky presents the facts of Amundsen’s life and work, yet also captures Amundsen’s dreams and despairs. Just as Amundsen was foiled in his goal of being the first man to reach the North Pole and had to change plans, so Ruzesky also failed to follow exactly in Amundsen’s footsteps and reach the Pole. Both men adapted, doing what they were able to do, and creating compelling stories in the process.”

“Vancouver media man Ed Willes has a cool new book out if you love the CFL. Called End Zones/Border Wars, Willes writes about the era of U.S. expansion in the CFL. It was, ultimately, a disaster, but also one of the more fascinating chapters in CFL history.”
