"A novel that is wholly entertaining—there are some laugh-out-loud moments and countless smirky grins—and still leaves you with lots to think about? That's good stuff. A wholly entertaining novel that leaves you with something to believe in? That's grand." —Buried in Print, review of Shari LaPeña's Happiness Economics

"Novels love a changeling—there's something Dickensian about this story of mistaken identity." —Globe and Mail review of Margaret Thompson's The Cuckoo's Child


Suzanne North's new novel Flying Time spent three weeks at the top of the Calgary Herald Bestseller list


"Virtually every beat of Shepard’s prose is bang on. His sharp dialogue, well-drawn characters, and incisive descriptions work to make this tale highly believable. He captures both the sclerotic inanity of grad school and the insularity of small-town life with equal gusto. The novel is tightly plotted, yet leaves room for convincing moments of reflection." —Quill & Quire Magazine's starred review of Aaron Shepard's debut novel, When is a Man


Jessica Kluthe (Rosina, The Midwife) and Theresa Shea (The Unfinished Child) nominated for Alberta Lit Awards by the Writers Guild of Alberta!

"I’m fascinated by the things we bury, whether those are the polluted rivers we’ve encaged in Toronto, or our deep hurts and shame... I’d like this novel to be like a glass manhole cover to its readers that allows them to peek underneath the surface both of this city and of a person who might be like someone they know, or even like themselves." Interview with Patricia Westerhof and short excerpt from The Dove in Bathurst Station posted on The Toronto Quarterly.
"Making a name for yourself" in the National Post takes a peek into the world of debut novelists in what is deemed one of our 'biggest' fall seasons for new releases. Thanks to Diana Davidson, Lauren Carter and Patricia Westerhof for their articulate and interesting comments in the piece.
"Carter’s debut reads like an elegy for an entire population, an entire planet. This somber world, paired with a wash of beauty in the prose, makes for a reading experience I can only compare to the blue hour of the day—something half-way between light and darkness." The Coastal Specator reviews Swarm by Lauren Carter.
"A story of strength, dedication, family, and self-discovery, Rosina, The Midwife was fantastic." Reading in Winter reviews Jessica Kluthe's Rosina

 

 

 


When is a Man

Author: Aaron Shepard

At thirty-three, Paul Rasmussen is broken and angry—the physical and mental outcome of his diagnosis of and recovery from prostate cancer. Hoping to escape the world and regain his sense of self, Paul retreats to the remote forests of the Immitoin Valley in BC's interior, where a series of encounters with the locals force him to face not only his own uncertain future, but the shaded history of the valley's past.

The Winnipeg Review hails Aaron Shepard's debut novel as "fine proof of the skill the author has for grafting and crafting words into a memorable journey through the human condition."
