      Hi Alina!
      I have read all of the books in this lounge, except for the French ones (which I’ve started). The books coming out of Winnipeg are amazing, and each of these books is fascinating in its own way. They are all so different, and I was especially thrilled to see authors I had not read before (Rowan McCandless and Seream).

      Ah, Marj, such a reader! Okay, so which of these would you recommend that I read first?

      Hi Tanis! I cheated–it’s my job to keep up on the Prairie titles! Some of them are not out yet (The Strangers and Persephone’s Children). I highly recommend Colin’s Permanent Carnival Time–it’s truly fabulous!!

        Marj, that’s not cheating; that’s dedication! Many thanks for the rec. I will order Colin’s book — great title.

      Hi!

      I actually have a copy of Seream’s book that I picked up randomnly at ‘A la page’ in St. B (while buying Sartre, Rimbaud and Rousseau, oh my!). Have not read it yet… it’s in triage.

      “Boussole Franche” looks great… have always liked Amber O’Reilly’s work.

      So happy to be a bilingual reader… and so much to explore on the site! (And yes, poetry is my jazz).

      Happy literary adventuring, everyone!

        Spencer, “in triage” beats the TBR pile. Bien sur.
