The reviews are in for the New York production of Michael Redhill's Goodness, and they're phenomenal!
'Michael Redhill's gripping and important play about genocide ... has the intimacy and discordant reach of a late Beethoven string quartet ... the clarity of Mr. Redhill's language, the economy of Ross Manson's direction and the excellent cast ... succeed in dramatizing its complexities ... haunting ... shocking.' -- New York Times

In addition to being the start of the summer movie season, a time for flowers and the last name of Rod Stewart's friend Maggie, May is also the month of Doors Open Toronto and the start of Book Expo America! But here's the thing about May: it's the fifth month of the year, and as such (and because we're stumped for sale ideas), we're taking a fifth of the price off every title on the Coach House site!
From May 30 to June 1, the largest publishing event in North America – Book Expo America (or 'BEA' to those in 'the biz') – is hosted at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, and Coach House will be there. Like every year, the Expo provides booksellers and publishing industry workers a preview of exciting new things happening in the world of books.
