Book launch this Sunday, March 13th at 3 pm

Posted By Nico On March 9, 2011 @ 9:00 am In Events | No Comments

Tightrope Guy [1]Join Tightrope Books [2] at Proof, the Vodka Bar in the Intercontinental Hotel from 3 – 6 pm to launch new books by Jim Nason and Ruth Roach Pierson.

Jim Nason’s collection of shorts stories is entitled The Girl on the Escalator. The characters in theses eleven stories live in a world upside down. From the young professional who leaves her high-powered job to explore street life as a graffiti artist, to the gay man who falls in love ……with a woman. Jim Nason has crafted a collection of gender- and expectation-bending stories that reveal the extraordinary and often heartbreaking truths of ordinary life.

Also being launched will be Ruth Roach Pierson’s third poetry collection, Contrary. While humour, fond remembrance, and wry awareness break through, contrariness tinges many of the poems in this collection, a contrariness rooted in rueful self-examination. These are poems that mount an opposition, poems that contradict and argue, sometimes in jest, sometimes in deadly seriousness, poems that read unexpected messages into painting and photographs.
