Who’s Who

Ardizzone, Tony photo_credit Anna ArdizzoneA is for Ardizzone
Set during the Vietnam War and the so-called counter-culture reaction, The Whale Chaser (Chicago Review Press $16.95 pb US) by Tony Ardizzone follows the life of Vincent Sansone, the eldest child and only son in a large Italian American family, who is a disappointment to his violent, fishmonger father in Chicago. Vince hightails it to Tofino where he first gets a job gutting fish, then joins the marijuana trade as a salesman for a dealer named Mr. Zig-Zag until his friendship with an Ahousaht aboriginal, Ignatius George, results in a job as guide for tours to see whales. The Vietnam War serves as a catalyst for Vince to consider the effect of “la storia segreta,” the unspoken story of how his grandfather, like thousands of other Italians and Italian Americans, was interned in a prison camp after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The Whale Chaser explores the nature of sin, redemption, death, and resurrection through the perspective of Italian-Americans. Tony Ardizzone a native of Chicago, published six previous books of fiction, including In the Garden of Papa Santuzzu and Taking It Home: Stories from the Neighborhood. His writing has received the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction, the Pushcart Prize, the Chicago Foundation for Literature Award for Fiction and the Milkweed Editions National Fiction Prize, among other honors. He was living in Portland, Oregon when his novel partially set on Vancouver Island was published. [photo by Anna Ardizzone] 9780897339230

B is for Brooks

Carellin Brooks

B is for Brooks
Described as a novel, with an uncapitalized title, one hundred days of rain (Bookthug $20) is a journal-style compendium of 99 days in the life of a woman who struggles to raise her child while coping with a disastrous break-up with her female ex-partner and the estranged father. Promotional materials draw a comparison to Elizabeth Smart’s By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept but Brooks’ repetitive descriptions of rain in the Lower Mainland, giving rise to the title, are less memorable than Smart’s classic tale of a woman being stranded in Pender Harbour, having a child out of wedlock, doomed to love an egocentric, married man, in a more conservative time. Lots of white space gives the heft of a novel, but the fractured narrative doesn’t give rise to a memorable tale. The narrator’s harried life of coping is less dire than being marooned in a tiny, coastal hamlet. 978-177-166-090-7

Cull, Trisha headshotC is for Cull
Trisha Cull’s first book, The Death of Small Creatures (Nightwood $22.95), forthcoming in April, is a memoir about her experiences with bipolar disorder, substance abuse and bulimia, “and my fervent need for the approval and love of any and all men.” Having been bipolar for twenty-five years, she writes poetry about her abuse of many substances, including alcohol, prescription medication, cough medicine, crystal meth and crack. Three relationships significantly impact her life: her marriage to Leigh, a much older man; her unrequited love for Dr. P, her therapist; and her healthier relationship with Richard, an American she meets through her blog. She was bulimic since she was sixteen, most of her adult life, but with the help of her psychiatrist, Dr. P, and others, she gained a period of health and peacefulness, in remission from bulimia, and completed her book. “Mental illness is reaching epidemic proportions,” she says, “so I feel my memoir is both timely and relevant. I hope that my book will help people dealing with similar struggles to feel connected to something outside of themselves, to have hope.” Trisha Cull is a graduate of the University of British Columbia’s MFA Creative Writing program. Her work has been published in Room of One’s Own, Descant, subTerrain, Geist, The New Quarterly, The Dalhousie Review and Prism. She was the winner of Prism’s Award for Literary Non-Fiction in 2007, and the 2007 Prairie Fire Bliss Carman Poetry Award for her poem, “Loose.” She lives in Victoria, B.C.

D is for Druehl
After retiring as professor of marine botany at Simon Fraser University for thirty years, Louis Druehl turned his hand to writing books. He recently penned a novel set in a small community on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Cedar, Salmon and Weed (Granville Island Publishing 2015) is about a young man named Gaz in the 1970s and his friendships with a mix of fishermen, hippies, First Nations and the scientists and students at a local marine station. Gaz leaves his job as a beachcomber to become a small-time marijuana grower. The book captures coastal life and the imperfect world of people in a remote village where residents still get about by boardwalk or boat. A previous book by Druehl, Pacific Seaweeds (Harbour Publishing 2001), is a guide to over 100 common species of seaweeds in the Pacific Northwest, ranging from the coastline of southeast Alaska to central California. Druehl is also the president of Canadian Kelp Resources Ltd., a company that produces sea vegetables (Barkley Sound Kelp) and operates a kelp farm. 978-1926991610

E is for Elk
Watson Mylar was the pen name for Jim Millar when he self-published Hunting Elk in Kitsilano (A Canadian Romance) in 1978 under the imprint of Vanity Press. “I had just completed a graduate fellowship at the San Francisco Art Institute,” Millar has recalled in an email, “but chose to go into law, so Hunting Elk was only intended to be an adventure; an unedited rough sketch. I pursued a career as trial and appellate counsel on freedom of expression cases, as well as contempt, environmental, and many murder cases; basically everything from white collar to black leather. But I hit a tipping point, quit, and now live above a Teddy Bear Museum in Thailand where I have no wife, TV or dog, so I’m writing.” According to Millar, Hunting Elk in Kitsilano sold 1500 copies in a month “because booksellers like Duthie’s, Blackberry, and the UBC Bookstore actually promoted it. Wouldn’t happen now.” A copy of Hunting Elk in Kitsilano is in the Special Collections library at UBC and it was made into an audio book by the Crane Library. Three copies were available worldwide via Abebooks in January of 2015; a signed copy was priced at $12.50 U.S.

Olesko, Darlene

Darlene Olesko

O is for Olesko
Portland Oregon native Darlene K. Olesko gravitated to Lasqueti Island during the “back to the land” movement in 1971. She co-authored and illustrated the first Lasqueti Island cookbook and contributed an article and map to Islands in the Salish Sea: A Community Atlas coordinated by Sheila Harrington and Judi Stevenson. Lasqueti Island, home to poets, artists, physicists, fishermen, loggers and professional consultants in engineering, alternative energy and education. Statistics Canada calls it one of the most highly educated communities in BC. The “back to the land” movement of the ’70s and early ’80s brought a flood of exotic characters to the island’s rural communes — hippies, revolutionaries, utopians — all hoping to build a simpler, better life away from mainstream society. Lasqueti Island, the least known and populated of the Gulf Islands, was the place to be. In Accidental Eden: Hippie Days on Lasqueti Island with Douglas L. Hamilton (Caitlin $24.95) Olesko and Hamilton explore Lasqueti’s rowdy, divided reputation, its eccentric days and political accomplishments — like convincing BC Hydro to re-route a power line around, rather than over the island. Today some perceive the island as a romantic fantasy of a great place to raise children and grow old, others see it as a community of “inbred hermits,” wanting to dodge the authorities and grow their own drugs. Accidental Eden is a collection of tales representing an irreplaceable era BC history. 978-1-927575-52-9

Firing the muskets, and sneaking out at night, getting into trouble is fun, but Jason and his friends keep running into the same camp counselor, and he is clearly up to no good. When they start to investigate what he’s doing, they find they may have taken on more than they can handle. 9781459807518

Simmers, Bren large

Bren Simmers

S is for Simmers
Bren Simmers’ book-length poem Hastings-Sunrise (Gibsons: Nightwood Editions $18.95) is a tribute to the neighbourhood of Vancouver in which she lived from 2010-2013. It reflects her attempts to find home in a city where she couldn’t afford to own one. Borrowing from phenology, she tracked seasonal and cultural changes from one spring to the next. “These observations allowed me to me to develop other markers of home,” she says, “the rhythms of street trees and Christmas lights, the people we pass everyday, and favourite neighbourhood routes.” Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors such as elevation. Simmers  subsequently left Hastings-Sunrise in favour of the natural, wooded environment of the Squamish area. Bren Simmers has won an Arc Poetry Magazine Poem of the Year Award, she has been a finalist for The Malahat Review’s Long Poem Prize and she has been twice longlisted for the CBC Poetry Prize. Her work has been anthologized in Alive at the Center: Contemporary Poems from the Pacific Northwest (Ooligan, 2013).  Her first book was Night Gears (Hamilton: Wolsak and Wynn, 2010) .  978-0-88971-310-9

U is for Uganda
Ainslie Manson’s thirteenth children’s book, A Giraffe Called Geranium (Red Diamond / Sandhill $19.95) was inspired by her trip to Uganda where her niece manages safari camps. Manson learned about poaching problems and the need to protect giraffes, prompting her to create a whimsical story about a giraffe that makes an inexplicable appearance in a West Coast garden. A girl named Susanna comforts and names the giraffe, but it’s homesick for the African savannah—so they set sail for Africa.  Manson gave the story to West Vancouver artist Mary Baker as a 60th birthday present. Baker previously illustrated a 2010 book by Grace Chen, a young woman with Down’s syndrome. Baker’s art has most been sold and displayed in West Vancouver. 978-0-9937341-0-6

Vaillant, John Jaguar coverV is for Vaillant
His grandfather wrote the first history of the Aztec nation. Then John Vaillant lived in Oaxaca for a year where a fictional character, Hector, inexplicably entered his head, telling Vaillant he was trapped inside the empty tank of a water truck, trying to illegally enter the United States… Vaillant found myself drawn into writing a novel about the predicament of Hector and his unconscious travelling companion from Oaxaco who is carrying important information to the U.S., both stranded and abandoned by people smugglers. Vaillant describes his two central characters as “accidental spokesmen for the tumultuous changes” that are occurring in Mexico, in particular, and worldwide in general, as economic divides increasingly have deadly consequences for people in have-not societies. His riveting first novel is called The Jaguar’s Children (Penguin Random House $29.95). Hector finds a name in his friend Cesar’s cel phone–AnniMac–and sends messages to this unknown person, pleading for rescue. Over the course of four days, as water and food run low, Hector relates the story of why he and Cesar entrusted their lives to the “coyotes” or people smugglers who have left them to die. 9780307397164

Wolfwood of Hornby Island and Victoria is the director of the Barnard-Boeker Centre Foundation, a non-profit society founded in 1996 to encourage programs that promote social justice, peace, sustainability, diversity and community through research, writing, film and art.

A baker in El Salvador confronts a mining company. A child in Gaza recounts Palestinian war. She muses on Pablo Neruda; she visits Chiapas. Hope vanquishes despair, and love frequently intercedes: “your back a mahogany guitar/ emerging from its case.” A passing girl in a bikini, with butterscotch skin, honey hair and “breast seal-slick” strolls past a silent protest of women dressed in black to combat nuclear bomb testing. She is innocently licking an ice cream cone, oblivious. “I see the pallette of your glowing skin / the poison plumes begin to develop / shadows and fissures emerge   your skin sears / you become a map of Bikini Atoll / two bombs on cities and twenty-two / nuclear bomb tests later.” Her collection of poetry is Love and Resistance (London, UK: Smallberry Press, 2014). A book launch and reading is planned for January 30th in Victoria at CAFÉ SIMPATICO: 1923 Fernwood Rd. at 8 pm,along with  musical guests Sharon Hazelwood & Alan O’Dean . 978-0993031502

Y is for Yam
Yam Cooper of Penticton has written, illustrated and self-published The Story of Bill and His House of the Hill (Yam Cooper $19.95), described as a humourous and refreshing tale for all ages about diversity, leadership and xenophobia. Bill has grass hair. As an outcast, he forms a friendship with a deaf-blind critter and reinvents a language that bypasses discrimination and connects people through the heart. According to promotional literature, “this adult-book-in-disguise” seeks to encourage better understanding and avoidance of bullying with a discussion guide called Beyond the Green Noggin. “This story has many layers,” says Cooper. “With each reading, depending on their age, life skills and experience, the reader can discover the one that opens their mind or sparks an important lesson for life. The book touches on many topics in a fun and engaging way, like creativity, racism, discrimination, sustainability, language, openness, taking action, staying positive, and many essential skills for life. I hope to reach children before they become bullied or bullies, as Bill’s story can positively influence their direction in life.” Educator and humourist Yam Cooper is a member of the non-profit family band Vivibe, “playing world music for peace and deepening the human to human and human to planet connection,” when he produced his first book. Cooper is also on the board of directors of Happy Hive Creative Learning Society, “a fresh new organization of awesome visionaries creating innovative creativity, life skills, and teamwork programs for children.” 9780993813115
