Elimination Dance by Michael Ondaatje was first published as a chapbook in 1975 – and it is still going strong; this is the bilingual travellers’ edition with translation into French by Lola Lemire-Tostevin.

Riffs by Dennis Lee is the story of a passionate love affair, told in vintage Lee style – with whoops, deep chords, and headlong improvisational arcs – this is definitely not Alligator Pie… This  new Classics edition (2015) includes an introduction by Paul Vermeersch and an essay by Dennis Lee describing the writing of this collection.

The Ledger is Robert Kroetsch’s classic docu-poem (the first book in his lifelong Field Notes series) is about and within the form of the ledger kept by his grandfather for the family sawmill in Bruce County, Ontario (1975).

Hard Light by Michael Crummey, first published in 1998, retells and reimagines his father’s and others’ stories of outport Newfoundland and the Labrador fishery. In 2015 this new edition was published with added material – an introduction by Adrian Fowler and an afterword by Michael Crummey.

A value of $80.00 for $25.00 – that is a bargain!!
