Deep Salt Water

By Apostolides, Marianne

Toronto: Book Thug, 2017. Deep Salt Water is an intimate memoir about abortion, expressed through the language and imagery of the ocean. By gravitating around a central love story—the reconnection of a couple who’d had an abortion twenty years earlier, the book draws its readers, inexorably, into global themes of loss, time, and creation. 174p. illus.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Softcover. New. Illus. by Catherine Mellinger.

The Lucky Child

By Apostolides, Marianne

Mansfield Press, 2010. The Lucky Child - a memoir cum novel by Toronto-based Marianne Apostolides.... immerses us deeply into the lives of the Apostolides family during World War II, and the subsequent Civil War in Greece. Subtle in its execution, clear in its vision, with a narrative that is both incisive and heartfelt, the novel provides an excellent opportunity for readers to witness the private and unfathomable cost of war, politics, and valour during one of the most troubling periods in modern Greek history. Its unanswered questions, both real and imagined, will haunt long after its final page is turned.". Signed by Author. 1st Can Ed. Soft Cover. New Book from Publisher.

Swim: A Novel

By Apostolides, Marianne

Toronto: BookThug, 2009. " Attuned to a body in motion, Swim pulls the reader beneath the logic of prose, into the eroticism of language itself. The arcing rhythm of a body breathing, a woman marking her birth as she swims in a pool sustains the unique and hypnotic language that becomes the medium through which this story moves. Swim entwines the present with those past actions and consequences that have brought Kat to the Greek mountain village where her father was born. She swims laps while her fourteen-year-old daughter reclines on a chaise lounge, poolside, reading a book. Without ever leaving the pool we enter discrete scenes with Kat’s parents, daughter, husband and lover. On entering each point in this history, Kat reveals an undertow of sound, rhythm and words in their rippling meanings. Each new lap moves Kat closer to her impending decision: whether she will leave her husband. But the deeper tension within this innovative novel derives from the writing itself -- its vital urgency that extends the possibilities of narrative beyond the fixed and into the fluid.".

Every Lost Country

By Heighton, Steven

Toronto: Vintage Canada, 2011. " Lewis Book, a doctor with a history of embroiling himself in conflicts, and his daughter, Sophie, travel to Nepal to join a climbing expedition. One evening, as Sophie sits on the border between China and Nepal, watching the sun set over the Himalayas, she spots a group of Tibetan refugees fleeing from Chinese soldiers. When shooting starts, Dr. Book rushes toward the ensuing melee, ignoring the objections of Lawson, the expedition leader, who doesn’t want to get involved and spoil his chance to be the first climber to summit Kyatruk. Lawson is further enraged when Amaris, a Chinese-Canadian filmmaker recording the expedition, joins Book with her camcorder in hand. When the surviving Tibetans are captured just short of the border, Lawson and Sophie look on helplessly as Book and Amaris are taken away with them, down the glacier into China. From that point, Lawson continues his ascent, and the fugitives are caught in an explosive and thrilling pursuit that will test their convictions, courage, and endurance.". 1st Pbk Ed.. Softcover.
