Wiseman's wager : a novel by Dave Margoshes( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From an emergency room in Calgary, where an intern hears his poorly timed joke about suicide, Zan winds up on the psychologist's couch. But the doctor's efforts to investigate Zan's mental state are constantly stymied by his misfiring memory, his wry delivery, and his novelist's tendency to embellish. Is he misremembering, misrepresenting, crafting a better story - or all of the above? Through the streets of Strike-era Winnipeg, Toronto during the Depression, and the 1980s Calgary of Zan's new life, Dave Margoshes's compellingly unreliable narrator treats the reader to a magnificent meditation on aging, family ties, faith, and the liquid concept of the truth."--Publisher's description

In Purity of Absence, Dave Margoshes explores love in its waxing and waning, the extravagance of its fullness, the agony of its departure. Like an explorer charting new territory, he casts his eye on the rhythms and syntax of love, observing its aspects both quotidian and rare. The poems in this new collection, Margoshes's first in a decade, chart the ekg patterns of love, not just the mature love between a man and a woman but love for a parent, friends, knowledge, place and, ultimately, life itself

Russian dolls : stories from the breathing castle by W. P Kinsella( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the distinguished W.P. Kinsella comes his final work - a series of linked stories wrapped in a novel. Russian Dolls weaves in and out of the real and imaginary worlds of Wylie, a struggling author and self-proclaimed "unreliable narrator," as he finds and then loses his muse, Christie, in their shared home - aptly named the "Breathing Castle"--In East Vancouver. Woven into the story of their relationship are Wylie's short stories - at once bold, humorous, whimsical and reflective. The mood of the stories ranges from good to bad to worse, depending on his relationship with his muse at the time. Meanwhile, the stories Christie chooses to tell Wylie about her past are consistently captivating, but are also dark and dangerously inconsistent. Are her stories true? Or is the enticing but erratic Christie simply the better storyteller of the two?

A calendar of reckoning by Dave Margoshes( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Family, death, love, longing, retrospection: these are all of the themes Dave Margoshes touches on in his new poetry collection, and first in almost a decade. With careful attention to detail, and evocative turns of phrase, Margoshes introspectively looks back on youth. Intriguing metaphors, reminiscent of pastoral imagery, creates a sharp contrast between the heavy subject matter of one's own mortality, and the beautiful, evocative comparisons between humanity and the rest of the animal kingdom, particularly birds and trees. Darwin's Theory of Evolution, is juxtaposed with the desire to give in to temptation, and become one with the world, as Margoshes makes most evident in his final poem, "Wisdom", a fitting end to a collection that would have the reader struggling between reconciling their past and present."--

A mulatto who wears race and colour on his sleeve as he grows up with his Jewish father in Spanish Harlem, Frankie is part of a street corner band that makes good in the heydays of rock 'n roll, a finger-picking itinerant folkie in the freewheeling sixties and a budding composer of serious music in the seventies in Canada. Along the way, he passes by the margins of some of the key events of his time, his life illuminating that of a whole generation. 2000
