It's the McConaissance and we're just living in it. In the afterglow of Matthew McConaughey's Best Actor win at the 2014 Oscars, let us be your hero now (rather than in 10 years from now) and give you a 25% discount on Spencer Gordon'sCosmo, so you can accompany the actor as he descends into a surreal desert of the soul in 'Journey to the Centre of Something.'
February 19, 2014 – Tamara Faith Berger's titilating coming-of-age novel, Maidenhead, received a nod in the Irish Times as a work that has 'contributed strongly to literature of the body, gender and sexuality.'
Coach House Books is putting the 'CH' in 'Kaffeeklatsch' this year. Starting in February, our coffee room will host a monthly Coach House Kaffeeklatsch!

January 25, 2014 – We're proud to share that Sarah Liss's community history of Toronto civic hero Will Munro, Army of Lovers, has been selected for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) for their 2014 Over the Rainbow List...
The Coach House team is getting close to our favourite time of year (this is an egregious lie): inventory counting!
We don't want to do it; our warehouse frightens us. Ergo, we have decided that for the rest of July, all of our backlist titles will be on sale at a 25% discount. This includes all of our books published (in print and electronically) prior to our recent spring 2014 titles.
The Trouble with Brunch: Work, Class and the Pursuit of Leisure, the latest title in our Exploded Views series, is now available for purchase through the Coach House website. Award-winning writer and urbanist Shawn Micallef takes on the hallowed tradition of brunch, rethinking it as a way to look more closely at the nature of work itself and a catalyst for solidarity among the so-called creative class.
