Bloodlines (Paperback): Andy Brown Bloodlines (Paperback)
Andy Brown
R233 Discovery Miles 2 330 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In Bloodlines Andy Brown turns his attention to the subjects of medicine and the human body, treating them with the lyricism, imaginative range and formal agility for which his poetry has become widely known. The poems in part one, Shifting Shape, offer more personal narratives, while the poems of part two, Bloodlines, explore the longer lines of medical history, through medical paintings, sculptures and translated versions from Spanish. There are also several lively versions of medical scenes from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and a number of poems that focus on disease, hygiene and sanitation.

Exurbia (Paperback): Andy Brown Exurbia (Paperback)
Andy Brown
R233 Discovery Miles 2 330 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Exurbia is the name of the urban fringe at the outer limits of suburbia. These poems begin here, characterised by edges, transition and change. In the assured lyric voice for which Andy Brown's poetry has become well known, they pay meticulous attention to where and how we make our homes. The poems of the book's central sequence are elegiac versions inspired by the Argentinian poet Borges, gazing over the city's blurred outskirts at dawn and sundown, while the book's final poems reach fully ex urbia, arriving at woodlands and moors, rivers and estuaries. Here, from the edge of the shoreline, they head out to sea before making a circular migration back home.

The Netherlands and European Integration, 1950 to Present (Hardcover, 0): Mathieu Segers The Netherlands and European Integration, 1950 to Present (Hardcover, 0)
Mathieu Segers; Translated by Andy Brown
R2,131 Discovery Miles 21 310 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

On 9 May 1950, France launched a revolutionary plan for supranational cooperation in Western Europe. The Netherlands was taken completely by surprise. In the decades that followed, European integration moved forward at an unprecedented pace, taking the Netherlands with it. Geography and the post-war world seemed to leave the country no other choice. European integration forced - and is still forcing - the Netherlands on a far-reaching 'journey to the continent'. For the Netherlands, European integration represents a difficult journey to a new old world that often seems far off. How has that journey progressed so far? Why did the Netherlands join the common European market and currency from the very beginning? Was this course inevitable? And where has it brought the country? Using new, international source material, The Netherlands and European Integration, 1950 to Present digs deeply into the history of the Netherlands in Europe - a subject that is today more topical than ever.

Mole Chronicles (Paperback): Andy Brown Mole Chronicles (Paperback)
Andy Brown
R254 R175 Discovery Miles 1 750 Save R79 (31%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Andy Brown's first novel follows a sibling relationship told through vignettes, each story centred around the removal of a mole. From this premise, Brown's novel expands the associations of moles from skin disease, to the burrowing animal, to secret societies and espionage, to tell the story of familial dysfunction, culture-jamming, eco-terrorism, and regret in the lives of young adults in the 1990s. Moving from the urban decay of Montreal to the beaches of Vancouver and back, and reflecting on diverse cultural and historical phenomena -- BMX racing, The Fantastic Four, bush parties, lifeguard obsessions, and the Montreal Ice Storm -- 'The Mole Chronicles' is an engaging and innovative debut novel.

Animal Cracker available at Amazon sites around the world. Kindle version coming soon. If Bridget Jones and "The Office" had a baby, it might look something like "Animal Cracker." In "Animal Cracker," a bunch of smart women plot to get the goods on their boss at Boston's venerable Animal Protection Organization. Hal Mason is Brad Pitt-handsome, with a Harvard professor wife and an adorable but shiftless son who wins the heart of Diane Salvi, the organization's new communications director and the book's narrator. When Diane lands the job of her dreams, she's impressed with her new boss, but soon learns that Hal has managed to earn the adulation of the organization's board of director and the scorn of his staff. As Diane's suspicions about Hal mount, she enlists some friends in the office, along with her reporter roommate, to investigate if he's just plain annoying or much, much worse. Diane's journey is one of a young woman's drive to create a fulfilling life as she navigates the vagaries of the workplace and tries to find love, all while holding onto her principles.

You & Your Bright Ideas - New Montreal Writing (Paperback, 1st ed): Andy Brown, Rob McLennan You & Your Bright Ideas - New Montreal Writing (Paperback, 1st ed)

Collected here are many of the newest and best Montreal writers published over the past few years. English writing in Montreal has had the distinction of being isolated from the rest of the country, left to stew in its own creative juices, with very few English-language presses and little support for English work. Consequently it has developed along alternate paths and has created its own vibrant culture. The spoken-word community in particular has become a source of envy outside the city. The writing in this anthology, international in scope, reflects the migratory nature of the Anglophone community while drawing inspiration from the city itself. Some of these writers have only a handful of publication credits but put out chapbooks and perform constantly around town at a variety of impressive cabaret events. Others have a couple of books under their belt. Not always concerned with conventional styles, many of them are on the cusp of notoriety. This anthology will introduce a wider audience to this latest Montreal Renaissance. Included are: Catherine Kidd, Corey Frost, Billy Mavreas, Sue Elmslie, Tess Fragoulis, Anne Stone, Heather O'Neill, Liane Keightley, Ian Ferrier, Meg Sircom, Masarah Van Eyck, Lydia Eugene, Andy Brown, Valerie Joy Kalynchuk, Dana Bath, Jonathan Goldstein, Lance Blomgren, Yvette Poorter, David McGimpsey, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Dean Irvine, and Susan Gillis.

R185 Discovery Miles 1 850 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Franks Casket is an 8th century Anglo-Saxon treasure chest in the British Museum, decorated with runes, some Latin text and images from various traditions. Each rune has a pictorial value: for example, in the runic (`fisc'), f signifies `wealth', i `ice', s `sun' and c `torch', yielding a sequence of four images. I determined the sequence of images given by the runes and then used these images to write the poems, which aim to capture something of the layered histories of the place where I live: the river Teign and its surrounding area. -Andy Brown
