Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

From the beginning, Montréal has played a significant role in French writing of North America. While it is relatively easy to find novels to support the idea of Montréal as the center of the French Canadian universe, a more interesting challenge has been to examine the ways in which writers avoid the city, sometimes even effacing a character s, and perhaps their own, montréalité in the process. In this book I examine the various roles of Montréal agent, setting, allegory, theme, character, trope in a wide range of novels and short stories. I reveal how Montréal s topography serves to offset the notion of a uniform citizenry while simultaneously reinforcing class differences. I also reject the traditional rural/urban rivalry by examining texts that draw attention to a failed, romanticized view of rurality, yet highlight the fact that Montréal s urban egocentrism can be considered no less an idealized view of society. Perhaps the most valuable inquiry into the literature of Montréal found in the book is the subversion of the monolithic and homogeneous image of the city by detailing individual particularities which reflect the diversity of Montréal s various neighborhoods.

In this collection of poems, Thomas Grissom explores a range of themes and situations gathered from a lifetime of lessons and observations. By turns lighthearted and serious, introspective and philosophical, uninhibited and irreverent, they are always open and honest expressions of inner truths. Taken all together they form a poetic rendering of episodes from the autobiography of a life. Written in the direct and simple language of a modern American idiom in free verse lines that reflect the natural patterns and rhythms of spoken language, they are lucid, uncluttered, and eminently readable. THOMAS GRISSOM is also the author of three other collections of poems: "Other Truths," "One Spring More," and "Journal Entries," all from Sunstone Press. He lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico and is Emeritus Member of the Faculty at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. In addition to poetry Grissom is the author of several works of fiction as well as non-fiction.

This novel explores cross-cultural issues through Payal, a child of immigrants, whose anxiety over her 'weird' upbringing drives to lead the most ordinary middle-class white Canadian life she can, while still trying to be the good child in her parents' eyes. When infertility derails her plans, and with her brother's return outshining her efforts, Payal runs off to her cousin's wedding in India, and must consider whether or not she has the capacity to live life on her own terms.
