We just received six new poetry chapbooks from Metatron, a community-based publishing collective based here in Montreal! Among them, there's Magnetic Days, the first book of poetry from Roland "Rollie" Pemberton (aka Cadence Weapon). Metatron describes it as "an abstract rendering of contemporary Canadian youth culture...a collection of poems and stories about love, class, race, drugs and religion."
Our new Metatron selection also includes the second book from store favourite (and Montrealer) Laura Broadbent, whose Oh there you are I can't see you is it raining? is one of the best-selling titles in our poetry section. Her new one is a collection of putative "posthumous interviews" with Clarice Lispector, W.G. Sebald, and Jean Rhys.
Other titles include Ashley Opheim's I Am Here, Jay Winston Ritchie's How to Appear Perfectly Indifferent While Crying on the Inside, Tampion by Ali Pinkney, and les œuvres se;ected [sic] by Matthew E. Duffy.
