A wild collection of hysterical telegrams, this book offers poems that are personal, political, angry, and wickedly funny. From Spanish drag queens, movie stars, and one-night stands to cute anatomy students and the inside of a despot's mind, the images of these scarlet confessions turn the reader into an instant therapist, confidante, and voyeur. Eclectic, topical, and always more than a cultural barometer, these poems range stylistically from intense, break-neck story-telling to pure surrealist rant.

This collection takes off from where Sky Gilbert's first volume of poetry concluded and begs the question: Has Sky Gilbert grown up? Thankfully, the answer is no. Like Digressions of a Naked Party Girl, Temptations of a Juvenile Deliquent does not represent a fine literary turn by a respected man of letters, nor is it an experiment in metaphor and metonymy ripe for exegesis and respect. Instead, it's a personal, confessional, hilarious, rant-filled thrill-ride -- where familiar streets are filled with gay boys, hookers, Key West sunshine, and movie stars. These are poems written on the run, between tricks, after orgies, and before that last cigarette at 4 in the morning. They are meant to be read: out loud, in bed, or simply as a tool for seduction. This dangerous book is recommended to minors, the inexperienced, the virginal, shut ins, and the sexually repressed, not University courses or best-seller lists anywhere.

The Judy Garland of the future tells it like she sees it The year is 2050, and, contrary to popular belief, Judy Garland did not die in 1969. At the grand old age of 138, she's re'embraced her real name, Frances Gumm; she's a feminist scholar, working on her Ph. D. at the University of Toronto; and she's writing her thesis on a little'known gay Canadian playwright and drag queen, Dash King, whose rather dismal career ended in a plethora of drugs and promiscuous sex. Obsessed with King's antiquated notion of gay politics, Frances's own meditations on addiction are triggered by his tragic story. Will she go back to drugs, or will she finish her thesis' Framed in an intense communication between Frances and her Ph. D. advisor, Come Back explores a dystopian future and muses on everything from the merits and demerits of post'structuralism to the future of queer theory. Sky Gilbert's Judy Garland is angry, profane, funny, and very, very smart.

A groundbreaking, comprehensive anthology of Canadian gay male poetry, the first of its kind, that reveals a national queer poetic that is equal parts eloquent, subversive, and moving. The material, from the 1890s to present-day, includes work by fifty-seven poets from every region of the country, including some from Quebec who have been translated into English for the first time. For many, the queer experience is central to their aesthetic, offering works of startling beauty and originality, some of which speak to our national identity while others transcend it. The fifty-plus contributors include Patrick Anderson, bill bissett, Robin Blaser, Sky Gilbert, John Glassco, Brion Gysin, Daryl Hine, Douglas LePan, Daniel David Moses, Stan Persky, Andy Quan, Ian Iqbal Rashid, Shane Rhodes, Bill Richardson, André Roy, Gregory Scofield, Michael V. Smith, George Stanley, RM Vaughan, and Ian Young.

Exploring the culture of AIDS, this novel examines the minds of those whose lives revolve around the virus—the gay men who are running scared, barebacking, taking toxic drugs, and raising funds for others similarly afflicted. When Kasper Klotz makes the mistake of infecting a beautiful young Midwesterner, he’s accused, like a handful of other HIV-positive men in North America, of assault and attempted murder. A woman obsessed with Ayn Rand soon makes the incarcerated Kasper her mission. A hilarious, politically incorrect rant, this medical-scientific mystery is a thriller about what makes the AIDS virus tick.

The Second Edition of The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature, now in its third printing, is a landmark reference work.

The remaining entries, however, have all been updated to include new publications, and those on leading writers have in many cases been expanded.

Fraser, The Giller Prize, Elizabeth Hay, David Macfarlane, Peter Oliva, Kenneth Opel, Witold Rybczynski, Shyam Selvadurai, Russell Smith, and Margaret Visser - making this concise edition an indispensable supplement to the original companion. original companion.
