Eliot prize winner George Szirtes and Helen Ivory - two of the UK's most respected poets and teachers. In Their Own Words is an examination of the voices writing in the UK today - the book addresses multiculturalism, page and stage, and LBG issues, as well as traditional `page' poetry. This book is not retrospective, it is a representation of the poetry world as a living, breathing developing thing. Readers will get an insight into the many ways the poetic voice can develop - it's a behind the scenes look at the poetics of the poetry. There is nothing currently available quite like it.

Andy Brown's first novel follows a sibling relationship told through vignettes, each story centred around the removal of a mole. From this premise, Brown's novel expands the associations of moles from skin disease, to the burrowing animal, to secret societies and espionage, to tell the story of familial dysfunction, culture-jamming, eco-terrorism, and regret in the lives of young adults in the 1990s. Moving from the urban decay of Montreal to the beaches of Vancouver and back, and reflecting on diverse cultural and historical phenomena -- BMX racing, The Fantastic Four, bush parties, lifeguard obsessions, and the Montreal Ice Storm -- 'The Mole Chronicles' is an engaging and innovative debut novel.

Collected here are many of the newest and best Montreal writers published over the past few years. English writing in Montreal has had the distinction of being isolated from the rest of the country, left to stew in its own creative juices, with very few English-language presses and little support for English work. Consequently it has developed along alternate paths and has created its own vibrant culture. The spoken-word community in particular has become a source of envy outside the city. The writing in this anthology, international in scope, reflects the migratory nature of the Anglophone community while drawing inspiration from the city itself. Some of these writers have only a handful of publication credits but put out chapbooks and perform constantly around town at a variety of impressive cabaret events. Others have a couple of books under their belt. Not always concerned with conventional styles, many of them are on the cusp of notoriety. This anthology will introduce a wider audience to this latest Montreal Renaissance. Included are: Catherine Kidd, Corey Frost, Billy Mavreas, Sue Elmslie, Tess Fragoulis, Anne Stone, Heather O'Neill, Liane Keightley, Ian Ferrier, Meg Sircom, Masarah Van Eyck, Lydia Eugene, Andy Brown, Valerie Joy Kalynchuk, Dana Bath, Jonathan Goldstein, Lance Blomgren, Yvette Poorter, David McGimpsey, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Dean Irvine, and Susan Gillis.

Animal Cracker available at Amazon sites around the world. Kindle version coming soon. If Bridget Jones and "The Office" had a baby, it might look something like "Animal Cracker." In "Animal Cracker," a bunch of smart women plot to get the goods on their boss at Boston's venerable Animal Protection Organization. Hal Mason is Brad Pitt-handsome, with a Harvard professor wife and an adorable but shiftless son who wins the heart of Diane Salvi, the organization's new communications director and the book's narrator. When Diane lands the job of her dreams, she's impressed with her new boss, but soon learns that Hal has managed to earn the adulation of the organization's board of director and the scorn of his staff. As Diane's suspicions about Hal mount, she enlists some friends in the office, along with her reporter roommate, to investigate if he's just plain annoying or much, much worse. Diane's journey is one of a young woman's drive to create a fulfilling life as she navigates the vagaries of the workplace and tries to find love, all while holding onto her principles.

Despite their promise of a complete and balanced meal, most commercial pet foods are chock-full of dangerous by-products, indigestible fillers, and chemical preservatives.

In THE WHOLE PET DIET, Andi Brown combines simple home cooking with natural supplements, dedicated playtime, exercise, and good old-fashioned pampering to help regulate pets' weight and tap into their natural healing powers.

R451 R368 Discovery Miles 3 680 Save R83 (18%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Astronomers are on the verge of answering one of the most profound questions ever asked: are we alone in the universe? The ability to detect life in remote solar systems is at last within sight. Its discovery, even if only in microbial form, would revolutionize our self-image. Planet Hunters tells a delightful tale of smart-alec nerds, the search for extraterrestrial life and the history of an academic discipline. Professional astronomer Lucas Ellerbroek takes readers on a fantastic voyage through space, time, history and the future. He describes the field of exoplanet research in its proper historical perspective, from the early ideas of sixteenth-century heretic Giordano Bruno and the rise of science fiction to the discovery of the first exoplanet in 1995 and the invention of the Kepler space telescope. He travels the world to talk to leading scientists in the field, including first exoplanet discoverer Michel Mayor, NASA Kepler mission scientist Bill Borucki and MIT astrophysicist Sara Seager. Presenting cutting-edge research in a dynamic, fun and accessible way, this book will appeal to everyone with an interest in astronomy and space.

Casket (Pamphlet): Andy Brown Casket (Pamphlet)
Andy Brown
R209 Discovery Miles 2 090 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Franks Casket is an 8th century Anglo-Saxon treasure chest in the British Museum, decorated with runes, some Latin text and images from various traditions. Each rune has a pictorial value: for example, in the runic (`fisc'), f signifies `wealth', i `ice', s `sun' and c `torch', yielding a sequence of four images. I determined the sequence of images given by the runes and then used these images to write the poems, which aim to capture something of the layered histories of the place where I live: the river Teign and its surrounding area. -Andy Brown

Troubles Swapped for Something Fresh is a eclectic and exciting gathering of poem and prose-poem manifestos and unmanifestos that try to understand what poetry is and who or what it might be for. It is also about what the authors might want or demand from poetry, in either a general or personal way. Manifestos are often declamatory and incendiary, but I have tried to defuse polemic and overtly dictatorial rhetoric by juxtaposition, and by selecting work from a wide range of critical and poetic positions, not least that of satire and wit.I've previously - as any of my students will tell you - dismissed manifestos, but have more recently found them useful to react against, to incite comment and both critical and poetical reponse with. Rather than read them as a definitive and final statement, I have come to see them as an important part of poetics: a useful way to think about reasons for writing, about processes and techniques one might use to make poetry, and about existing or potential relationships with real or imaginary audiences. The book is designed to encourage and incite readers to engage with what all too often is regarded as a trivial and occasional art form. I believe, as do many of the other contributors, that poetry is far more than self-expression and heartfelt truth, it is where language is actually rooted and initiallly located; it is where thought itself comes into being. Language is wonderful and intoxicating stuff, an engaging and pliable medium with endless potential for reinvention and recreation. If the reader can find enthusiasm, passion, laughter and deep thought in this book - and then argue and engage with it - I shall be a happy editor. These manifestos and unmanifestos do not add up to a whole, but in their communcal incoherence and difference they challenge and delight.
