(WOOD, W.J.). BOYANOSKI, Christine and John HARTMAN. W.J. Wood : Paintings and Graphics. (Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Oct. 22,-Dec.4, 1983, and travelling to other galleries. Toronto: Art Gallery of Ontario, (1983). Pp. (4),[5]-152. Illustrated with dozens of examples of Wood's work. 8vo, art-illustrated brown card cvoers with white lettering to front cover. Design by Frank Newfeld. "W.J. Wood, who lived from 1877 to 1954, appeared on the scene at a crucial period in the development ofCanadian art. Although his work has been largely overlooked both during hi s lifetime and today, among his admirers and staunchest supporters were members of the Group of Seven, with whom he often exhibited, particularly A.Y.Jackson and Arthur Lismer. They saw in his art a bold artistic vision not unlike their own. The vigour and spontaneity displayed in his paintings andetchings both in their technique and their subject matter set him apart fr om many of his contemporaries, alienating some and attracting others. His favourite themes -- music, unidealized nudes, and the local scene in and around his home town of Midland, Ontario, give the work an intimacy and directness that can be grasped easily by everyone, for his humanistic vision is timeless and unversal." - from the rear cover.

BOYCE, Murray. Motion's Eye : Collected Poems of Murray Boyce. [Editor's notes by Victor Coleman. Introductory letter by Carolyn Struthers]. Toronto: The Coach House Press, (1987). First Printing. Pp. (16),[17]-124,(4). 8vo, illustrsated black, white and red card covers with white spine, black and red lettering to front cover and spine. "Murray Boyce (1926-1983) was in many ways the quintessential Southern Ontario writer: never straying too far from his roots in the rural landscape or from family connections. Not a career writer (he was an M.D. by profession, practicing at home and abroad) he published only one book in his brief lifetime. 'Motion's Eye' collects the published volume ('Woodstock', 1972) together with a posthumous second collection to complete his oeuvre. Using refreshingly direct and simple language, Murray Boyce celebrates the joy and wonder of the everyday with consummate skill, care and charm." - from the rear cover. Very good.

"What my Newfie brain can't comprehend or understand is: How come fourteen year old children can't legally buy cigarettes, can't purchase liquor, can't drive a car, can't get a marriage licence, can't join the RCMP, can't join the Canadian Forces, can't get a hunting licence, can't buy a gun, can't legally go into a public bar or tavern, can't buy a Lotto ticket or even be out after twelve at night., but they can legally have all the sex they want, even though they are living at home with their parents and are still considered to be dependent schoolchildren? Is this discrimination in reverse? It seems some politicians, judges and clergy are either sexually perverted, ignorant of thefacts, incompetent, irresponsible, or simply out of touch with reality.

211 BOYLE, Everett. Rest of the Story : According to Boyle

BOYLE, Everett. Rest of the Story : According to Boyle. (Burnstown, Ontario: General Store Publishing House, 2002). First Edition. Pp (2),[3]-297,(3) . 8vo, illustrated blue card covers, lettered in yellow and white. "The story made headlines across Canada: for decades, harassment, abuse, physical attack and sexual assault had been covered up in the Canadian Armed Forces. As a warrant officer during that time, Everett Boyle witnessed a number of these cover-ups and had documented them. He might have been content with that, if it weren't for the fact that he knew there was more, much more that had not come out in the media coverage. The Rest of the Story is his gripping account of the hidden events that never made it into the newspapwers andmagazines. Boyle pulls no punches. "One ol my reasons for moving back to N ewfoundland was to get away from the memory of the humiliation, emotional trauma, threats, abuse, harassment and mistreatment that had been unfairly inflicted upon two of my defenceless young subordinates and on me back in 1991. These attacks were perpetrated against the three of us for having udared to cnaiienge the misconduct of a superior military commander. They were planned and orchestrated by generals in the highest ranks and positions in the air force." The Rest of the Story is a courageous and hard-hitting indictment of moral cowardice at the very top of our military institutions. But Boyle does not merely point the accusing finger, he proposes responsible remedies, and it is this that makes his book an important document." (from publisher's promotional flyer).

212 BOYLE, Harry J RICHARDSON, Burton T., foreword. Mostly in Clover. signed in dj.
Clarke, Irwin & Company Ltd, Toronto, 1961, 
BOYLE, Harry J. Mostly in Clover. With a foreword by Burton T. Richardson. Toronto: Clarke, Irwin & Company Ltd., 1961. Pp 227. 8vo, brown cloth. Harry Boyle's first book, is a lively series of reminiscences of his childhood spent on a farm in Huron County, Ontario. With a winning blend of nostalgiaand amusement, he writes of the people and events, the trials, triumphs, t ears and laughter which stand out most boldly in his recollections of his boyhood. Yet for all its charm, his account is essentially realistic. Mr. Boyle has skilfully refrained from applying to the past a coating of sugary sentimentalism. Dozens of people stroll in and out of the author's recollections, leaving vivid impressions of their personalities. He lovingly recallshis family: his grandparents, who occasionally provided a haven from a sto rm of parental wrath; his warm-hearted but taciturn father, and his mother,the family financier, whose skilful management of her teapot bank kept the family solvent in moments of financial stress. Affectionately, the author observes in retrospect the quirks and foibles of the aunts, uncles and cousins who were part of his childhood world. He remembers the long succession of hired men who worked for his father. The author recalls the yard whose fences for a time constituted the boundaries of his world, and the animal inhabitants of the world. He describes the festive events which marked his family's calendar, the annual baking of the Christmas cake, or their one-day holiday at the lake. The descriptions of country cooking that occur regularly throughout the book are calculated to make the reader throw away his diet sheet and run for the nearest strawberry shortcake. The most outstanding quality of the book is the sensitivity with which Mr. Boyle writes of the difficult years that lie between boyhood and manhood. He describes with unusual insight the incidents which for him were milestones on the path that led out of the complexities of adolescence to the more stable world of adulthood. Equally sensitive are his descriptions of the rural world in which he grew up. His long-standing familiarity with the outdoors has bred in him anarticulate appreciation of the many-faced beauty of the fields and woods. Everyone who longs to escape for a few hours from the present-day world to one more leisurely and simple, will find Mostly in Clover the ideal vehicle." Contents: Winter. 1. The Winter Battle; 2.

They discover a vegetable plot on a boat and an alpine rockery in the mountains; a rose specialist on the prairies and a banana grower on a small island; a balcony arboretum in the and a flower patch in the forest.

BRANDIS, Marianne. Frontiers and Sanctuaries : A Woman's Life in Holland and Canada. Montreal and Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (2006). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xxi,(3),[3]-415,(3). With 67 illustrations to text including msny b&w photos. 8vo, black paper-covered boards with silver lettering to spine.

"The life of Madzy Brender à Brandis (1910-1984) -- her experiences in war, as an immigrant and pioneer, wife and mother, writer and painter, and invalid -- exemplifies the challenges faced by many women in the twentieth century. In a vivid retelling of her mother's story, Marianne Brandis chronicles Madzy's life.

Drawing from her mother's diaries, letters, newspaper columns, fiction, and historical works in English and Dutch, Marianne reconstructs Madzy's upper-middle-class youth in Holland, her struggle to keep herself and her small children alive during World War II while her husband was in a POW camp, and her emigration to Canada with her family. Increasingly handicapped in the latter part of her life by rheumatoid arthritis, she spent more and more of her time writing, speaking to and for other immigrants and women.

'Frontiers and Sanctuaries' is most powerful in showing how the conflicting needs for both frontiers and sanctuaries, freedom and safety, shaped Madzy's life. Lively, candid, introspective, and insightful, her voice shines through -- the voice of a woman for whom recording her life was both a compulsion and a delight." - from the dustjacket.
