By Theresa Kishkan

Using the richness of braided essays, Theresa Kishkan thinks deeply about the natural world, mourns and celebrates the aging body, gently contests recorded history, and considers art and visual phenomena. Gathering personal genealogies, medical histories, and early land surveys together with insights from music, colour theory, horticulture, and textile production, Kishkan weaves a pattern of richly textured threads, welcoming readers to share her intellectual and emotional preoccupations. With an intimate awareness of place and time, a deep sensitivity to family, and a poetic delight in travel, local food and wine, and dogs, Blue Portugal and Other Essays offers up a sense of wonder at the interconnectedness of all things.

By Sharon English

Brothers Justin and Oliver have never been close. Justin owns an iconic Toronto restaurant and lives with his wife and daughter in Baby Point. Oliver, a former environmental reporter, does admin for a local gym and rents an attic apartment. Yet both men know their worlds stand on the brink. With their mother’s abrupt death, each sets out to set things right: Oliver to reclaim a beloved home, Justin to save one that’s falling apart.

Intersecting Justin’s and Oliver’s journeys is Gabe: a budding biologist enchanted by the underappreciated beauty of moths and conflicted by the demands of scientific scrutiny. As the brothers’ pursuits take them from Toronto Island to the Humber River, from drugs and transgressive art to meetings with imperilled activists, Gabe stakes everything on a glimpse of a new possibility.
