One of the fine Coach House titles launching this April is Gabe Foreman's debut poetry collection, A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People. This encyclopedia is not your average reference book. It turns a series of sociological case studies of various stereotypes into a functional encyclopedia that doubles as a unique, achingly funny, always engaging collection of poems.
The City of Ottawa announced on November 12 that for his stunning book of poetry, A Pretty Sight, he had won the 2014 Archibald Lampman Award and the Ottawa Book Award in the English fiction category. Congrats, David!
