      Just a Small Town

      by Paul Linggood

      A small town that could be anywhere: industry is in decline, streets are in decay, many have left, while those left behind take short-term joy in drugs. Four young people are among the left behind. Alex consumes heroin to escape his abusive father. Jim hides from guilt after the death of the friend he didn’t save. Chelsi’s brother killed a local boy, and ostracism pushes her towards a rival gang, prostitution and loneliness. Danny is a hustler but needs protection from the drug gang that supplies him. Can any of them survive the addiction, gang life, isolation and manipulation? Their small town could be anywhere.

      small red women

      by Marta Sanz

      A novel about the dead and the disappeared, for whom the search still endures, and against a far-right that has never left and turned into a universal threat. A noir novel that prolongs the possibility of the political novel. Paula Quiñones arrives in Azafrán as a volunteer to help locate civil war mass graves. Little by little, she integrates herself into the community and gets to know its power dynamics, governed by a family whose patriarch has just turned one hundred years old. The story becomes obscured, and the village becomes a threatening space in which Paula’s discoveries begin to put her in danger. Who were the dead that Paula is looking for? Who do the voices, that chase her like a tragic chorus of kids and women, belong to? A novel about economic and cultural violence, and about violence against women, that dissects accounts of memory. «Sanz has few possible competitors in her generation. If someone is called to remain in posterity, it’s her (…) She has talent, brightness, and nerve. It's literature in its pure state (…) With each narration that carries her signature, the miracle of good literature is produced» (Ángeles López, La Razón). «small red women—like so, in lowercase—is a subversive game that becomes a homage. The story of Paula, a middle aged inspector who arrives in the imagined location of Azafrán to work on a project of historical memory (…) The far-right’s boom in Spain and around the world has given this story an unexpected urgency. Or maybe not so unexpected (…) The novel takes from many genres and at the same time transcends them, manipulates them. But, like the previous two parts of the trilogy, it bathes in the noir and plays with it» (Juan Carlos Galindo, El País).

      The Admiral's Baths

      by Dana Gynther

      The Admiral’s Baths is composed of four inter-connected stories, each told from the perspective of a different woman in her own time period. The story opens as a contemporary historian conducts research at the baths, making discoveries which lead us back in time. History unfolds through the stories of the struggles, desires, tragedies, and triumphs of these four protagonists. Although they are separated by hundreds of years, we find that what connects them is more powerful than the passage of time. The Admiral’s Baths (102,300 words) revolves around an actual monument in Valencia, Spain, a medieval public bathhouse which was open for nearly seven centuries and is now a museum. Some years ago, I translated several articles about the monument, covering its history, owners, architecture, and restoration. I became fascinated with the subject, and was particularly struck by its longevity. The Baths’ long history became an integral part of the story; instead of choosing one moment in the Baths’ – and Spain’s—history, I chose four: the 14th, 16th, and 19th centuries as well as the 21st.

      My Time Undercover on the Granville Strip

      by Norm Boucher

      In his first true crime memoir, undercover operator Norm Boucher recounts eight months spent infiltrating Vancouver’s heroin scene, a world of paranoia, ripoffs, and violence. It is 1983 and the War on Drugs is intensifying. From his barroom observer's seat, Boucher candidly reveals the lives of heroin addicts who spend each day looking for their next hit. Their dangerous subculture, centred around three gritty hotels on the Granville Strip, becomes Boucher’s domain as he attempts both to gain acceptance in a world far removed from his own and to keep himself safe. With Horseplay, decorated RCMP officer Norm Boucher takes readers back to the assignment that shaped his outlook on the role of criminal law enforcement and the human side of addiction as it collides with the ruthlessness of the drug business.

      Mont Babel

      by Keith Henderson

      “Where is everybody?” That’s the question physicist Enrico Fermi posed to his Manhattan Project colleagues now 70 years ago. They knew what he meant. Decades of reaching out to intelligent beings elsewhere in the universe, and no response. Zero. Nothing. A fact which remains true today .Mont Babel sling-shots off the Fermi paradox using the opposing forces of father and son. Jim Benedict’s a humanist, a man of the word, his son an engineer who’s bored by Shakespeare and likes the NFL. “In the beginning was the word. In the beginning was the Big Bang: two party bumper stickers of our current malaise,” writes Jim Benedict. Father and son rarely communicate. If they do, it is by email. What brings them together is the lovely Iris Doubt, Tom Benedict’s south African geologist girlfriend, one of the Ariel School children who claimed to have been visited by aliens. Now working in Canada, she spends her free time as invitee to UFO conferences and as investigator of impact craters, one of which is l’oeil du Québec, Mont Babel. Macrocosm meets microcosm in Mont Babel, quantum mechanics and astrophysics, neutrinos and black holes, raising questions about perception and consciousness, heaven and family peace. http://www.dcbooks.ca/MontBabel.html

      Landscape with the Fall of Icarus

      by Zsolt Alapi

      The protagonist of this novel, Stephen, twice exiled, first from his birthplace, Hungary, and then from the United States as a Vietnam draft resistor who settles in Montreal, Quebec, becomes obsessed with W.H. Auden’s poem, 'Musėe des Beaux Arts' and Bruegel’s painting Landscape with the Fall of Icarus, an obsession about the nature of suffering and art that leads to his attempted suicide and to the subsequent chaos of his life. Upon his discharge from a mental institute, he attends several sessions with his psychiatrist with whom he has a comically adversarial relationship wherein they explore his false reliance on literature as the only way to define and relate to the world. Told through the first- person narrator, the novel explores the nature of suffering, of authenticity, and of the value of the written word as Stephen reflects on his past life, the dissolution of his marriage, and his abiding yet potentially destructive passion for books. After his discharge from the mental institute and while undergoing therapy and merciless self-evaluation, Stephen receives a mysterious phone call that leads him to an exploration of his failed relationships with women and a final surprise resolution to his search for meaning and redemption. Set primarily in Montreal, the novel also travels to the places of Stephen’s past: the Hungary of his childhood, Europe, the United States, and the Montreal of his youth through his memories and reflections. Despite its comic undertone, the novel explores the illusions we construct to provide value to our lives, the nature of love and the erotic, and the path towards compassion and meaning.

      Kate Wake

      by Mariianne Mays Wiebe

      It’s 2008. Blue Hills is a haunted place. Katie fights to reclaim her life from the grip of a profound psychological crisis, tracing back a maternal thread through a stumbled-upon and uncertain family history at the nearby, now-abandoned prairie mental asylum. As Katie seeks to rehabilitate the present by understanding the past, her fate becomes imaginatively intertwined with that of her great-grandmother Kate Wake, an enigmatic independent-minded artist with a remarkable story of her own. In returning to a scene of loss, this elegant variation on the Eurydice-Orpheus myth reconsiders, with a fresh, unsentimental vision, the roles of trauma, madness, creativity and memory in relation to art and literary form. Sharply realized and fortified by a fierce, poetic grace, Kate Wake testifies to the timeless, urgent power of art and music with a delicately experimental, multi-genre story that unfolds its narrative mystery to reveal a shocking core.

      The Roof Walkers

      by Keith Henderson

      Christmas, 1864, in the last years of the civil war, a twenty-year-old Irish Canadian, Eoin O’Donoghue, is newly hired as the personal secretary to the prospective head of the Irish Republican Army in New York, William R. Roberts. Appalled that the mayhem he sees around him is also being planned for his own country, Eoin offers his services to Gilbert McMicken, head of Canada’s secret police. So begins the trajectory of what Eoin himself calls, self-disparagingly, his “Judas informantcy.” Against a backdrop of fusion and collapse, 600,000 Americans dead, one nation, Canada, about to be created, another to its south in disarray, Irish militants plan northward raids to win a “New Ireland” on the continent (its capital, Sherbrooke, QC), to split Ireland itself off from Great Britain, and to avenge reverse, cross-border Southern terror plots hatched in Montreal and approved by Jefferson Davis. Under assumed names, safely housed in the Moffat Mansion on Union Square live the secret, illegitimate twin daughters of James Stephens, IRA leader in Europe. Who will capture Eoin O’Donoghue’s allegiance–his Fenian employer, Deirdre Hopper (Stephens), accomplished painter and musician and daughter of the leader in Dublin, or Canadian spymaster Gilbert McMicken, who regularly insists his protégé provide “less poetry and more police work?”

      The Leader as Influencer

      Want to lead? First, you need to be followed

      by Barbara Liebermeister

      The trendsetter as role model Managers and influencers have much in common. They are not born, but made – and both are ‘made’ by their followers. We live in a digitalised, globalised world: one in which the role of authority is ever less significant and the importance of networking is growing all the time. The leaders of the future are credible, inspiring and with a knack for eye-level communication: the very same attributes that propel an influencer to success. In the modern business world, the difference between success and failure depends on effective relationship management based on high personal credibility and integrity as a leader. True power results from personality. We need a fresh understanding of leadership based, in turn, on a new conception of human nature itself. We need team spirit. The author shows the mechanisms that make influencers successful and explains how business leaders can implement these in their day-to-day working lives. As the best leaders already know: it is those that can win over their employees as individuals that will truly reap the rewards long-term. Influencer success strategies applied to everyday business Concrete practical tips for leaders Examples from a variety of national and international organisations Barbara Liebermeister is an economist by education and a management consultant and keynote speaker by trade.

      How to delegate skilfully and with confi dence

      by Cordula Nussbaum

      The 7 steps of successful delegation Too much to do and not enough time to do it? Most of us have more tasks on our daily to-do lists than we can realistically achieve. Even for masters of organisation and time manage-ment, 24 hours in the day is frequently not enough. Our mod-ern workloads are often too great to be managed alone. Delegation – sharing the load – is the obvious solution, yet many of us struggle to relinquish control. The reasons for this are manifold: perfectionism, a desire for control, a fear of loss of reputation, a drive to be ‘nice’, a lack of trust in the work of others or simply a lack of knowledge about the right tools. Even where tasks are nominally assigned to others, we still scramble to do most of the work. In this entertaining, practical guide, renowned time manage-ment expert Cordula Nussbaum shows how things can be different. She exposes the pitfalls and hurdles to which we all-too-readily succumb and empowers us to convert our inner saboteurs into our greatest advocates. The book is a valuable tool for the art of “You do that, please!” As you read, you’ll realise that letting go and relinquishing control don’t have to be painful. On the contrary: successful delegation unburdens us of unnecessary drains on our time and unlocks new scope for creativity, innovation and the things that really matter. A seasoned business journalist, entrepreneur and 20-time book author, Cordula Nussbaum has long inspired an audience of millions with her guidance and wisdom on personal success. Her German-language podcast ‘Kreatives Zeitmanagement’ (‘Creative Time Management’) is among the top-rated in the self-help category; her blog, gluexx-factory.de, is visited by thousands of readers every month.

      Unbox Your Relationship

      How to draw people to you and build relationships that last

      by Tobias Beck

      Are you ready to have the best relationships of your life? Tobias Beck shows how you achieve them – at work and in your private life Thanks to our networked world, we have more relationships than ever before. We’ve never been in touch with so many people at any one time, and it’s never been so hard for us to open up to one another. We live in a world that strives for perfection and forgets that relationships are not a filtered Instagram selfie. Relationships exist alongside and because of us and, as such, are also like us: unique, flawed, and constantly changing. This is a good thing. Perfection is far too static a state for the colourful emotional world where our relationships reside. We need relationships to be happy, yet it is this unique emotional world that makes it so difficult for us to establish them in the first place. In this new book, Tobias Beck takes you on a journey aimed at achieving the best relationships of your life. As a first step, you must fall in love with yourself – because your relationship with yourself determines the standards of compassion, understanding, respect, and trust that is reflected in your relationships with others. Once you have learned to say goodbye to the beliefs that hold you back and to forgive the past and yourself, you will be able to intensively nourish good relationships and say goodbye to others. Your life deserves the best relationships you can foster. Tobias’ animal-based model of the four basic types of person - whale, shark, dolphin and owl - has already inspired millions online. It will help you figure out what the people around you feel and believe. What motivates them? What are the things they dream of? What scares them? In Tobias’ many humorous stories, you’ll recognise your partner, family, friends, colleagues and yourself, and thus learn to understand all these people better. By the end of the book, you’ll speak the language of the four animals and know why dolphins should never marry owls, why you should adopt a whale and what you should avoid so as not to be eaten by a shark. Tobias will take you on a journey to yourself and the people you love – with empathy, poignancy and plenty of laughs along the way. About the Author: With more than 250,000 seminar participants and 5 million Podcast listeners Tobias Beck belongs to the most in demand speakers in the German-speaking countries. Tobias Beck motivates you, gives you concrete tips and shows you ways in which you can free yourself from everything that oppresses you, that keeps you small. Learn to think in terms of opportunities and possibilities instead of first seeing problems and risks in everything. Go your own way and let your dreams and visions guide you. And above all, look for people who support you, who let you grow and help you to move forward - this is how you live your own life successfully and authentically BEWOHNERFREI®.
