Join Russell Smith and Biblioasis for the launch of Confidence Russell’s new collection of stories!

Also featuring the world premiere of Boys Underwear Girls, a short film by Gunilla Josephson, and a night of dancing to music by DJs Deadline and Shawn Benjamin!

It’s set to be the best and wildest launch of the spring!


In the stories of Confidence, there are ecstasy-taking PhD students, financial traders desperate for husbands, violent and immovable tenants, seedy massage parlors, infestations of rabid raccoons, experimental filmmakers who record every second of their waking lives, and mommy-bloggers who publish insults directed at their husbands. Whether in private clubs, crowded restaurants, psychiatric wards, or your own living room, everyone is keeping a secret.

About Russell Smith

Russell Smith is one of Canada’s funniest and nastiest writers. His previous novels, including How Insensitive and Girl Crazy, are records of urban frenzy and exciting underworlds. He writes a provocative weekly column on the arts in the national Globe and Mail, and teaches in the MFA program at the University of Guelph. He hates folk music.
