The National Post reviewed Rob Benvie's Maintenance over the Christmas weekend. Reviewer Alex Good compared the book to works by Douglas Coupland, Don DeLillo and Jonathan Franzen. See the review below, and in its original home www.nationalpost.com.
We're offering our holiday sale a month early! Here at Coach House, we're all about thinking ahead (sometimes). So, we're starting the holidays early for all you keeners and people who carry a bank balance! (We call those people 'The 1 %.')
The holidays are nearly here! And whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmukkah or Festivus, Coach House Books has what you need for the readers on your gift list. But as if finding the perfect gift weren't incentive enough, Coach House is holding a special Holiday Pyramid Scheme Sale this December!
Snare Books and Coach House Books present: Holiday Update
The launch of Update by Bill Kennedy and Darren Wershler
with special guest Jon Paul Fiorentino (Indexical Elegies)
Bill Kennedy and Darren Wershler will launch their new book, Update, on December 15 at the Magpie Tavern, as part of a special holiday event (that just so happens to be Jon Paul Fiorentino's birthday, as well). Come out and celebrate with us!
The holidays (Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus) are just around the corner, and Coach House knows times are tight. So we're offering a holiday sale throughout December. It's a great way to please the book lovers in your life.
Why watch a holiday special on television when you can watch one live, on stage? Bestselling and Griffin Poetry Prize-winning poet Christian Bök will be in Toronto to celebrate the publication of Eunoia: The Upgraded Edition.
This morning at Coach House we're all giving Brecken Hancock a great big group hug and want you all to join us in congratulating her on her big win last night. Her first poetry collection, Broom Broom, won the 2015 Language Trillium Book Award for Poetry (English Language), which comes with a $10,000 cash prize.
The Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts has awarded Coach House's own Jordan Tannahill the 36th Annual Dora Mavor Moore Award, a prize that celebrates excellence in Toronto theatre, dance and opera. The ceremony was held Monday evening (June 22nd) at the Harbourfront Centre, where 50 prizes in total were awarded to members of Toronto's vibrant performing arts scene.
Since our founding in 1965, Coach House has been committed to printing and publishing innovative poetry of the highest quality. With that mandate in mind, we want to make sure we're doing all that we can to share our poets' work with you!
