Big names and promising debuts feature among the season’s most intriguing novels, poetry, and story collections


Bina: A Novel in Warnings

Anakana Schoield

Knopf Canada, May

One of Canada’s most stylistically provocative and innovative wordsmiths, Irish-born Anakana Schoield returns in May with her third novel (a follow-up to the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize–shortlisted Martin John). In Bina (“That’s Bye-na, not Beena”), Schoield presents the story of a straightforward Irish woman who has come under suspicion for a crime so serious she cannot even talk about it directly.

The Western Alienation Merit Badge

Nancy Jo Cullen

Buckrider Books/Wolsak & Wynn, May

“Let the Eastern bastards freeze in the dark” was the pointed response from Alberta to Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s National Energy Program in the 1980s. Poet and Dayne Ogilvie Prize winner Nancy Jo Cullen’s debut novel travels back to that period in Canadian history to tell the story of a queer daughter who returns home to her family in Calgary as the 1982 recession sets in.
