MICHAEL POSNER author of "The Last Honest Man: MORDECAI RICHLER, An oral biography." Michael Posner offers an intimate view of the public and private lives of Canada's beloved Mordecai Richler through the words of his family and friends, colleagues and rivals. Also of interest is that the book's font is set in "Richler"--an easy to read font.


TED BARRIS author of "JUNO: Canadians at D-Day June 6, 1944." This year marks the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Nearly 15,000 Canadians were involved by sea and air. Barris recounts the invasion using hundreds of interviews with veterans who give voice to the triumphs and tragedies .

GEORGE BOWERING author of "STANDING ON RICHARDS" Canada's first Poet Laureate and the first writer to win both fiction and poetry Governor General's awards. An engaging, appealing collection of short stories from one of our best-loved writers.
