An honest and heartfelt debut about a down-on-his-luck gay man working out how he fits into the world, making up for lost time and opening himself up to life's possibilities. Danny Scudd is absolutely fine. He always dreamed of escaping smalltown life and becoming a journalist. And, after five years in London, his career isn’t exactly awful, and his relationship with pretentious Tobbs isn’t exactly unfulfilling. But his world is flipped upside down when a visit to the local clinic reveals that Tobbs might not have been exactly faithful. In fact, Tobbs claims they were never operating under the "heteronormative paradigm" of monogamy to begin with. Oh, and Danny’s flatmates are unceremoniously evicting him because they want to start a family. It’s all going quite well. Newly single and with nowhere to live, Danny is forced to move in with his best friend, Jacob, a flamboyant nonbinary artist whom he’s known since childhood, and their eccentric group of friends living in a "commune." What follows is a colorful voyage of discovery through modern queer life, dating, work and lots of therapy—all places Danny has always been too afraid to fully explore. Upon realizing just how little he knows about himself and his sexuality, he careens from one questionable decision (and man) to another, relying on his inscrutable new therapist and housemates to help him face the demons he’s spent his entire life trying to repress. Is he really fine, after all?

Pop star, TV star, movie star, wife & mother, Cher has remained at the top of the entertainment tree for over 30 years and shows no signs of slowing down. Her extraordinary popularity was stunningly confirmed in 1998, when her No.1 hit 'Believe' became the biggest-selling single of the year. In The First Time, she talks about the many other defining moments of her life, from her first memories of her mother to the eulogy to her former husband and singing partner, Sonny Bono, whose death in 1997 affected her deeply. She reflects upon her fluctuating pop career, which began as a backing singer in Phil Spector's recording studio, the stupendous success of Sonny and Cher's 'I Got You Babe',meetings with Andy Warhol, The Rolling Stones and Brian Wilson, and the move to Hollywood which brought her an Oscar for 'Moonstruck'. Told in her own inimitable style with dozens of her own photographs, THE FIRST TIME is the true story of the events that shaped the life of a luminous star.

Balancing wisdom and innocence, joy and foreboding, Sheila Heti’s completely original stories lead you to surprising places. This edition featuring nine new stories. A frog doles out sage advice to a plumber infatuated with a princess, a boy falls hopelessly in love with a monkey, and a man with a hat keeps apocalyptic thoughts at bay by resolving to follow a plan that he admits he won’t stick to. Globe and Mail critic Russell Smith has described Heti’s stories as cryptic fairy tales without morals at the end, but really the morals are in the quality of the telling and in the details disclosed along the way. Look where you weren’t going to look, think what you wouldn't have thought, Heti seems to say, and meaning itself gains more meaning, more dimensions. Heti’s stories are not what you expect, but why did you expect that anyway? This special new edition features nine new stories that were not available in the first Canadian edition.
