IN THE NEWS

You can read the Globe and Mail article here, and find the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal list here.
Globe and Mail reviewer Brad Wheeler wrote:
“They soulfully documented a 2017 road trip to the obscurest of ‘play ball’ destinations, all within a limited radius … The married authors complement each other—he’s the play-by-play guy; she, the colour commentator.”
Chris Foran of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal added:
“This book is a journal … of two people seeking and finding what made them love the game in the first place.”

Sea Loves Me by Mia Couto was featured in a beautiful rave review from World Literature Today!
Reviewer Anderson Tepper wrote:
“Sea Loves Me is a thrilling addition to Couto’s extraordinary body of work, bringing together new and old stories that evoke past and present Mozambique, memories and dreamscapes, natural and spirit worlds. War, race, sky and sea, death and desire—these are just a few of the eternal elements Couto uses to mold his wise, enchanting fiction.”

Russell Banks’ Foregone was also featured by the Globe and Mail, in an editorial by Russell Banks himself which also explores his reasons for becoming a Canadian citizen. Banks also had an interview and event with Globe and Mail writer Sandra Martin for One Page: Canada’s Virtual Literary Series! The Globe and Mail editorial can be found here, and you can still watch the One Page event and interview here.
Russel Banks explains in his article:
“I want my identity as a Canadian to be a significant part of my legacy. To do that, I first have to claim it. Also, for myself alone, I simply want to honour my father’s and my grandparents’ origins, the way I hope my children and grandchildren will someday honour mine. I want to merge my life’s story in the U.S. with my ancestors’ tales of two-and-a-half centuries of work and love in the Maritime provinces of Canada.”
