Book It


Maze draws on patterns of words, speech, and identity encountered in the wider world—subway  ads in Mexico City, a Dutch-Japanese phrase book, multilingual airplane safety instructions, one of Italo Calvino’s invisible cities—the poems in Maze playfully translate the maze of language into moments of amazement.

Happy Families: a novel. In 1984 Canada, the country’s economic recession and social unrest demoralize the families in a co-op preschool. Materialism and one- upmanship distract the volunteers from their mission of working together to educate their children and build a better world. The preschool’s supervisor believes in this mission but politically she is weak. She supervises the children but their parents supervise her. As a leader, can she bring peace to this divided small world? The future is at stake. (TellWell Talent)
