We're always brewing up fresh and flavourful literature with our Espresso Book Machine.
This month we've got a nicely rounded out batch of fiction and poetry. Firstly we've got a novel by a familiar name at McNally Robinson, Wendiann, titled Now What, which is a sequel to her previously self-published book And When.
Next is a minute though richly packed book of poetry: 20 Love Poems and Some Random Thoughts by Jeannette Montufar, which just had it's launch (with a huge turnout!) on May 22nd in our store. We hope to have another poetry collection, The Order of Creation by Leonard Linklater, on our shelves in the next few weeks.
These books were published and printed in-store at McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park, and as part of our consignment program they can be found on our shelves as well as our website. Visit our EBM Bookshelf to see a complete listing of all self-published books printed and sold at McNally Robinson.

It's important to set your graduate off on the right foot. You are, after all, setting them out into the world, all on their own, to face the challenges of post-secondary education and a career. It'll be an arduous journey, so you'll want to help them out as much as possible.
Fortunately there is plenty of inspiring literature for all types of graduates. These books can lift the spirits, bolster one's courage, and offer wisdom for anything life might throw at them. Certain titles focus on specific personalities and career destinations - books such as Letters to a Young Lawyer and the recently released Letters to a Young Scientist - whereas others, like Neil Gaiman's popular speech-turned-into-book Make Good Art, are there to motivate and invigorate people in all walks of life.
McNally Robinson carries a number of such inspirational titles. We've got displays in our stores to help you search for the ideal book for your graduate, or you can look after the jump to see a list of the books on our website.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Displays
Just today the winner of the Man Booker International Prize for 2013, the fifth such award, was announced.
Lydia Davis took home not only the honour of winning the prestigious prize but was also awarded £60,000.
From the official description of the Prize:
"I was recently denied a writing prize because they said I was lazy." runs one of Lydia Davis's two-sentence short stories. Well not any more. Davis has just been awarded the fifth Man Booker International Prize at an award ceremony at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Her inventive, carefully-crafted and hard to categorise works saw off the challenge from nine other contenders from around the world.
Congratulations to Lydia Davis! You can read all about the Prize and its winner by clicking here.Categories: Awards, Saskatoon, Winnipeg
David Rakoff has long been a favourite author of many of our booksellers, and his passing last year was met with much sadness at McNally Robinson and around the world.
Although David is gone, his legacy lives on. Random House of Canada has announced the publication of Rakoff's final book, Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish, the manuscript of which was submitted just weeks before his death. The book, Rakoff's last book though interestingly his first novel, is written in rhyme and spans the entirety of the 20th century.
Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish will be released in mid-July. To tide you over until then, Random House CA has put out a book trailer for the novel. You can view it below.
Contact McNally Robinson by phone or email, or just stop into the store, to place a pre-order for your very own copy of Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish. You can be certain we'll be getting copies in-store as soon as it's released.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, New Releases, Book Trailer
