Basement Revue

Basement Revue | Canadian literature | Scoop.it

Basement Revue For 12 years, The Basement Revue has been a half-music, half-literary variety show with a rock-’n’-roll sensibility and a unique Canadian voice, hosted and curated by Broken Social Scene singer/songwriter Jason Collett. From its inception on a wintry night in 2007 at Toronto’s Dakota Tavern, The Basement Revue has explored what happens when artists of different disciplines share the stage together. This has made for exciting collaborations, such as Feist backing up Michael Ondaatje or Margaret Atwood stepping up to the mic in front of one of Toronto’s most celebrated bands and saying, with her characteristic deadpan wit, “hit it Sadies.”

The Faerie Devouring by Catherine Lalonde, Translated by Oana Avasilichioaei – BookThug.ca

The Faerie Devouring by Catherine Lalonde, Translated by Oana Avasilichioaei – BookThug.ca | Canadian literature | Scoop.it

Praise for The Faerie Devouring: I hate to advise you but all us girls started out as a snot and a wiggle wrapped in a blanket to keep us still, and The Faerie Devouring is every gal’s story. Maybe it’s our way of yammering the words that Kafka’s penal officer has etched on his own back: Be Just. Except unlike Kafka, Catherine Lalonde doesn’t make us die, she makes us live as sprites and sisters and grammas and dead moms, and in her turned tables, the penal colony is the human family in its stink and whine and scream and will to life.
