Get Your First Look at Our Spring 2021 Lineup!

Spring 2021 cover details

After weeks of reading, writing, rereading and rewriting, we’re finally ready to share with you all the fabulous books that you can look forward to seeing in our upcoming Spring 2021 season.

First, we’ll be adding a new volume to our Essential Poets series. The Essential Elizabeth Brewster, selected by Ingrid Ruthig, features an influential but oft-neglected Canadian poet.

Next, we’re pleased to add a female voice to our series of criticism titles. Susan Glickman’s Artful Flight is full of intelligent, well-reasoned and uniquely supportive essays on literature as well as other art forms.

In May, we’ll be publishing Ross Breithaupt’s debut novel, Midland. It is the enthralling story of a traumatized young man’s attempt to find comfort and healing after the death of his brother by joining a tree planting brigade in Northern Ontario.

Last but certainly not least, we’re happy to announce Mark Frutkin’s latest novel, The Artist and the Assassin. This gripping fictional account of the life and death of the revolutionary painter Caravaggio is full of ambition, passion, desperation and revenge.
