Nightwood Editions : Highlights from 2017

It’s hard to believe 2017 is coming to an end! We started our publishing year off with a bang, with Melanie Murray‘s Should Auld Acquaintance, followed by a trio of exciting new poetry collections from Michael V. Smith, Michelle Elrick and Rodney DeCroo, who, all said, travelled far and wide to promote their new books.

The Clothesline SwingThis spring, Ahmad Danny Ramadan released his debut novel in English, The Clothesline Swing, which was honoured recently by The Globe and Mail as one of their top 100 Best Books of the Year, and received praise from Lambda Literary and fellow author Catherine Hernandez.

In May, Adèle Barclay‘s If I Were in a Cage I’d Reach Out for You received the 2017 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize and garnered a ‘best book of 2017’ nod from Maisonneuve Magazine.

In the fall, we were delighted to release Sam Shelstad‘s Cop House, Spencer Gordon‘s Cruise Missile Liberals, Rebecca Păpucaru‘s The Panic Room — which was shortlisted for the A.M. Klein Poetry Prize, and Joe Denham‘s Landfall. These talented and tireless Nightwood authors toured across the country, with stops at bookstores, reading series and festivals, and features on CBC Books and in Quill & Quireamong other publications.
Stay tuned on our social media channels for exciting news about our Spring 2018 line up, and if you’re lucky, you might spot a Nightwood sticker at your local bookstore or stuck to a frozen bus stop post in Vancouver, Montreal, or Toronto.
