A wild collection of hysterical telegrams, this book offers poems that are personal, political, angry, and wickedly funny. From Spanish drag queens, movie stars, and one-night stands to cute anatomy students and the inside of a despot's mind, the images of these scarlet confessions turn the reader into an instant therapist, confidante, and voyeur. Eclectic, topical, and always more than a cultural barometer, these poems range stylistically from intense, break-neck story-telling to pure surrealist rant.

This collection takes off from where Sky Gilbert's first volume of poetry concluded and begs the question: Has Sky Gilbert grown up? Thankfully, the answer is no. Like Digressions of a Naked Party Girl, Temptations of a Juvenile Deliquent does not represent a fine literary turn by a respected man of letters, nor is it an experiment in metaphor and metonymy ripe for exegesis and respect. Instead, it's a personal, confessional, hilarious, rant-filled thrill-ride -- where familiar streets are filled with gay boys, hookers, Key West sunshine, and movie stars. These are poems written on the run, between tricks, after orgies, and before that last cigarette at 4 in the morning. They are meant to be read: out loud, in bed, or simply as a tool for seduction. This dangerous book is recommended to minors, the inexperienced, the virginal, shut ins, and the sexually repressed, not University courses or best-seller lists anywhere.

The Second Edition of The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature, now in its third printing, is a landmark reference work. Reducing its 1200 pages by almost one half this concise edition will make the core contents of the original volume accessible to a much wider range of readers. Some entries have been shortened and others have been dropped, including many genre and regional surveys (except for Aboriginal literature, Exploration literature, and Writing in New France) and articles on Quebecois and Acadian writers whose works have not been translated into English. The remaining entries, however, have all been updated to include new publications, and those on leading writers have in many cases been expanded. Finally, over sixty new entries have been added - including entries on Gail Anderson-Dargatz, Anne Cameron, Wayson Choy, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Travor Ferguson, Cecil Foster, D.M. Fraser, The Giller Prize, Elizabeth Hay, David Macfarlane, Peter Oliva, Kenneth Opel, Witold Rybczynski, Shyam Selvadurai, Russell Smith, and Margaret Visser - making this concise edition an indispensable supplement to the original companion. original companion.
