For All the Men (and Some of the Women) I’ve Known is unlike anything I have ever read before. Unflinchingly honest in its examination of love in all its joyful, messy, agonizing, spectacularly beautiful glory, these stories seem to vibrate on their own emotional frequency. Danila Botha writes with a heartbreaking rawness and intensity that will continue to haunt you long after you’ve turned the final page.”—Amy Jones, author of We’re All In This Together

“Erotic. Truthful. Cunning. This is the juicy peach of a novel you’ve been longing to devour. Bless Karen Connelly for writing the life of a middle-aged woman with all the lusty bravura it deserves. I dare you to read The Change Room and not be simultaneously astonished and aroused.” —Ami McKay, author of The Witches of New York

Where do we come from? How did we get here? What does it mean to be human? These questions breathe life into The Last Neanderthal, a novel centered on two women separated by millennia but linked by an epic journey that will transform them both.

“A powerful, warm and thought-provoking book that artfully blends facts with fiction to put flesh on many abstract scientific debates.” – Yuval Noah Harari, international bestselling author of SAPIENS: A Brief History of Humankind and HOMO DEUS: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Boxcar Social, Harbourfront Centre
Book Launch: Toronto Lit Up
Participants: Barbara Gowdy

IFOA and HarperCollins invite you to the release of Little Sister by award-winning author Barbara Gowdy as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series. Join us at Boxcar Social at Harbourfront Centre and celebrate the new work of an acclaimed author.

littlesisterLike The White Bone, Gowdy’s international bestseller, Little Sister is a fictional tour de force. As the author explores the limits of the human mind, the result is an impassioned tale of one woman’s determination to help a woman she has never met, and to come to terms with a death for which she has always felt responsible.

“I had to admire Gowdy’s elegant structure…. Louise’s descriptions of her feelings for Abel are carefully constructed and, at times, flat-out beautiful…. [Gowdy] has found a perfect vehicle for her peculiar talents.” —The new York Times Book Review
