Kaleidoscope: Selected Poems by P. K. Page
Kaleidoscope: Selected Poems

Charlotte Smith, January 2, 2011

In 2010 we lost one of literature's shining lights. P.K. Page's poetry and art may never be known to a wider audience, but those who immerse themselves in her work will treasure it all the more. There is much more work of hers to be revealed, so savour it now and it may feel never ending.

Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

Charlotte Smith, January 1, 2010

This book is always the first that comes to me when I see or hear something about recommending books to others or about favourite books. With the millions of thoughts swimming through the average reader's head every day, in my opinion it's quite meaningful when one particular book springs frequently to mind. Bechdel's book is one of beauty and eloquence, the perfect treatment of a life that seems at times to be stranger than fiction. I challenge anyone who scoffs at graphic novels as literature to experience Fun Home, and challenge those who harbour no such notions to still do the same.
