Tonight! Book launch: Beginning with the Mirror by Peter Dubé

Join us tonight at 7 p.m. to celebrate the launch of Montreal author Peter Dubé's new book, Beginning with the Mirror. There will be a reading, books for sale and signing, and refreshments! The evening will be hosted by fellow Montreal author Christopher DiRaddo.

Jean Genet stated: "Anyone who knows a strange fact shares in its singularity." A few strange facts within this book, the latest collection by Shirley Jackson award finalist, Peter Dubé, are: the heat within a boy or a man can be muscular, be with purpose, be all consuming; mobs become consuming entities, shifting and hungry and with no humane intention despite being once composed of humanity; poets and actresses and students are words and words have power and resonance and walk on two legs and sometimes soar but more often haunt; and we can never forget that memories batter and wound, their shape defined like a blade or reflective like a silver-backed mirror. Dubé's short stories are eerie and fantastical and chip away at the known world until there are wide cracks that reveal many a strange fact to all of us at once.

PETER DUBÉ has published eleven books including the novels Hovering World and The City’s Gates, the short fiction collection At the Bottom of the Sky, the novella Subtle Bodies, which was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award, and Conjure: a Book of Spells, a collection of prose poems that was shortlisted for the A. M. Klein Prize. His new short fiction collection is called Beginning with the Mirror (Lethe Press).
