Winner of the Chapters First Novel Award and the Trillium Prize. "Childhood is André's Alexei's beeatifully ceafted début novel. It is a story about love, about memory - and forgiveness -about the persistence, the potency of the past. Set in a Southern Ontario town close tothe U.S. border in the '50s and '60s, and in Ottawa in the years that foll ow, the story is narrated by Thomas MacMillan. Through his clear-eyed vision and his unsentimental ordering of events, we meet a cast of brilliantly drawn characters. Among them are: Edna MacMillan, Thomas's volatile, unpredictable Trinidadian grandmother; and Katarina, the mother, who left him at birth, and ten years later, in the company of the sinister Mr. Mataf, swoopshim up and takes him from Petrolia. Soon after, we meet the unforgettable Henry Wing, a Black man with Chinese blood, a gentle conjuror who lives in faded Victorian splendour, and whose life work as a self-sttyled scientist is collecting esoteric facts of the natural world." - from front flap. Verygood. Signed, without inscription, by the author on title page. 30.00

(6),7-[187],(5). 8vo, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed green. "to make Graham Greene's real acquaintance it is necessary to look for him in his books. 'I thinkmy books are my children,' he frankly concedes. In his autobiographical wo rks, 'A Sort of Life' and 'Ways of Escape' he does, it is true, lift a corner of the veil. But we have had to wait till the publication of these uninhibited, free-ranging conversations with the young French writer Marie-Francoise Allain to discover the hidden Greene. He discusses his childhood, his travels and encounters, the genesis of his novels and plays, his religion, his inner world with a freedom and candour which overcome his habitual reticence." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. The Secret Man; 2. Divided Loyalties; 3. The Medium and Russian Roulette; 4. Writing and Action; 5. The False Political Disloyalties; 6. Certainties; 7. Of Cats and Bumble Bees; 8.

Mozart's Second Requiem (K.878) is being sung at the Cathedral Basilica of St. George at Coverley (pronounced Cowley) for the laying-to-rest of the monarch. Above choir and orchestra soars the faultless boy soprano voice of Hubert Anvil. It is a once-in-a-century talent. Althoughhe cannot yet know it, today's performance before a brilliant internationa l congregation - including two emissaries of the Holy Office - will alter his destiny but save his voice if certain of his elders have their way. In the world-as-we-know-it the last such castrato died in 1922, but this is another world altogether, spared the Reformation back in the sixteenth centurywhen Martin Luther became Pope. As Hubert is made aware of what may be in store for him, some unsuspected allies, including his father's not-so-celibate chaplain and the New Englander ambassador spring up. Around him swirls a whirlpool of piety, menace, terror, and passion - a vortex from which no reader can or will escape until the final resolution." - from the dj.
