Douglas & McIntyre Fall Book Preview

August 2017

Although we’re still enjoying the dog days of summer, we can’t help but look ahead to our upcoming new releases for Fall 2017!

Later this month, Douglas & McIntyre is excited to present the latest collection of stories from award-winning author Bill Gaston. The Mariner’s Guide to Self Sabotage is populated by the lonely and alienated, architects of their own destruction, and Gaston is lauded by Quill & Quire as among “the masters of Canadian literature.” Gaston will also be appearing at the Vancouver Writer’s Festival in October.

Also available in August is True Confessions from the Ninth Concession, a funny and affectionate chronicle of rural Canadian life, from Dan Needles, a winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. For more laughs, Tabatha Southey takes on pressing political and cultural topics with biting wit and unapologetic honesty in Collected Tarts & Other Indelicacies, available in September.

Renowned chef David Wolfman and his wife, Marlene Finn, fuse European cooking techniques with traditional North American ingredients in Cooking with the Wolfman, coming to stores in October. Wolfman and Finn share their favourite recipes—including tips for foraging and preparing local ingredients for all culinary skill levels—inspired by the traditional diets of Indigenous peoples.

In celebration of Canada’s relationship to the sea, Anita and Michael Hadley have compiled a salt-soaked anthology of the nation’s most significant literary voices, from Michael Crummey and Nino Ricci to Edith Iglauer and Farley Mowat, in Spindrift: A Canadian Book of the Sea, available now.

Enjoy the remainder of sunny days spent reading on the beach, and stay tuned for more new releases from Douglas & McIntyre!
