    Book - Barnacle Love by Anthony De Sa

    $18.95

    Barnacle Love, Paperback, By Anthony De Sa

    Shortlisted for the 2008 Scotiabank Giller Prize

    Like Wayson Choy and David Bezmozgis before him, Anthony De Sa captures, in stories brimming with life, the innocent dreams and bitter disappointments of the immigrant experience.

    At the heart of this collection of intimately linked stories is the relationship between a father and his son. A young fisherman washes up nearly dead on the shores of Newfoundland. It is Manuel Rebelo who has tried to escape the suffocating smallness of his Portuguese village and the crushing weight of his mother’s expectations to build a future for himself in a terra nova. Manuel struggles to shed the traditions of a village frozen in time and to silence the brutal voice of Maria Theresa da Conceicao Rebelo, but embracing the promise of his adopted land is not as simple as he had hoped.

    Manuel’s son, Antonio, is born into Toronto’s little Portugal, a world of colourful houses and labyrinthine back alleys. In the Rebelo home the Church looms large, men and women inhabit sharply divided space, pigs are slaughtered in the garage, and a family lives in the shadow cast by a father’s failures. Most days Antonio and his friends take to their bikes, pushing the boundaries of their neighbourhood street by street, but when they finally break through to the city beyond they confront dangers of a new sort.

    Book - Anthony De Sa, Kicking the Sky

    $19.95

    Anthony De Sa's novel of rare evocative power that captures the space between innocence and knowing--for a city, for a community and most especially for a trio of unforgettable boys.

         On a steamy summer day in 1977, Emanuel Jaques was shining shoes in downtown Toronto. Surrounded by the strip clubs, bars and body rub parlors of Yonge Street, Emanuel was lured away from his friends by a man who promised some easy money. Four days later the boy's body was discovered. He had been brutally raped and murdered, and Toronto the Good would never be the same. The murder of the Shoeshine Boy had particularly tragic resonance for the city's Portuguese community. The loss of one of their own symbolized for many how far they were from realizing their immigrant dreams.
         Kicking the Sky is told from the perspective of one of these children, Antonio Rebelo, a character first introduced in Barnacle Love. Twelve-year-old Antonio prizes his life of freedom and adventure. He and his best friends, Manny and Ricky, spend their days on their bikes exploring the labyrinth of laneways that link their Portuguese neighborhood to the rest of the city. But as the details of Emanuel's death expose Toronto's seedier underbelly, the boys are pulled into an adult world of danger and cruelty, secrets and lies much closer to home.
         Kicking the Sky is a novel driven by dramatic events, taking hold of readers from its opening pages, intensifying its force towards an ending of huge emotional impact.

    Book - Anthony De Sa - Children of the Moon

    $22.00

    From celebrated author Anthony De Sa comes a raw and compelling novel of love, war and the heartbreaking effects of memory.

    "'You must listen to my words. You must promise to tell my story the way I have shared it with you.'"

    Tanzania, 1956. A Maasai woman gives birth to a child with albinism. The child is seen as a curse upon her tribe, and so begins Pó's tumultuous story. As Pó navigates the world, she must claim her life in the face of violence and ostracism.

    Further south, in Portuguese-controlled Mozambique, Ezequiel struggles for acceptance too. Adopted by missionaries, he is not recognized by his Portuguese father's community, or by his Makonde mother's tribe. When civil war erupts, he must choose who to fight for and who to leave behind.

    Pó and Zeca come together in a time of momentous change. Love connects these two outsiders, forcing them to confront the shattering impact of colonialism and war. Children of the Moon is a stunning and unforgettable exploration of the love of two people at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control.

    Book - The High Mountains of Portugal

    $22.00

    Sold out

    With this highly anticipated new novel, the author of the bestselling Life of Pi returns to the storytelling power and luminous wisdom of his master novel.


    The High Mountains of Portugal is a suspenseful, mesmerizing story of a great quest for meaning, told in three intersecting narratives touching the lives of three different people and their families, and taking us on an extraordinary journey through the last century. We begin in the early 1900s, when Tomás discovers an ancient journal and sets out from Lisbon in one of the very first motor cars in Portugal in search of the strange treasure the journal describes. Thirty-five years later, a pathologist devoted to the novels of Agatha Christie, whose wife has possibly been murdered, finds himself drawn into the consequences of Tomás's quest. Fifty years later, Senator Peter Tovy of Ottawa, grieving the death of his own beloved wife, rescues a chimpanzee from an Oklahoma research facility and takes it to live with him in his ancestral village in northern Portugal, where the strands of all three stories miraculously mesh together.
         Beautiful, witty and engaging, Yann Martel's new novel offers us the same tender exploration of the impact and significance of great love and great loss, belief and unbelief, that has marked all his brilliant, unexpected novels.

    Push for Happy: An Interactive Emotional Awareness + Regulation Children's Book

    Push for Happy is an interactive emotional intelligence, awareness, and regulation book. It prompts children to label feelings, emotional triggers, and to put themselves into the storybook along the way. Children create their own character, drawing out body scans, by illustrating how they experience the feeling and where they feel it in their body. Children draw their triggers while thinking about how to regulate their emotions and considering the characters’ experiences.

    This book was created by Tania DaSilva, a child, and youth therapist, it allows children to create a one-of-a-kind storybook, making themselves one of the main characters! It follows four friends throughout their day and their emotional ups and downs, the biggest lesson being emotions aren’t permanent and awareness helps us regulate.

    Children's Book in Portuguese

    "Este livro ilustrado convida-nos a embarcar rumo à ilha do Pico. (...) é um convite à descoberta do arquipélago e à proteção da vida marinha em todas as idades." - TIME OUT PORTUGAL

    No conto de Isabel Mateus com ilustrações de Filipe Gomes, reaviva-se por certo a memória da tradicional caça à baleia praticada nos Açores que, desde o século XIX, foi o ganha-pão de muitas famílias das ilhas. E persegue-se, sobretudo, o sonho novo de um presente com futuro: a preservação das baleias através de uma observação responsável. Os sucessivos diálogos ao longo da narrativa entre o avô, que fora baleeiro no Pico, e o neto, que já nascera depois que essa faina fora proibida, em 1984, falam precisamente desse sonho do menino: ver a baleia-azul a passar nos Açores. Porém, esse desejo profundo e urgente revela-se uma façanha difícil de concretizar quando tal aventura depende do velho bote a remos do avô, das boas ou más condições climatéricas e, mormente, da dificuldade em avistar este mamífero tão raro, porque ainda em vias de extinção. De resto, foi apenas durante a terceira saída para o mar que o rapazote viu ao natural talvez o maior animal que alguma vez existiu na Terra. Na atualidade, e antecipando-se à atividade turística "Whale Watching", o menino, que entretanto se tornou adulto, mostra já ao leme da sua embarcação, durante a primavera e o verão, que é quando esta espécie de baleia faz a sua passagem migratória pelos Açores, a baleia-azul a todos.

    "Ao ler este livro, mirei-me ao espelho do tempo. E nesse retrovisor senti-me, de novo, criança. As brincadeiras no Porto das Ribeiras. Na casa dos botes, em cima do cais, nas poças, à beira mar, em cima da ponte, por entre barcos varados sobre a rampa e gentes a escarafunchar em vidas encardidas.
    Os pés de menino fincados nas pedras lisas do porto. Os olhos a varrer o mar de lés a lés, presos à Ponta do Morricão, na Calheta de Nesquim. A ânsia e a espera. O coração aos solavancos dentro do peito. A saudade entalada entre as tábuas de um batel de boca aberta. Os barcos que vão chegando, entre bonançarias e borrascas. A alegria e o encantamento a tomarem conta dos filhos dos pescadores. O barco encostado à escaleira e os beijos apressados, com sabor a sal e a sol, nos rostos secos e luminosos dos nossos pais. Peixe até aos bancos. A alegria estampada nos olhos de todos nós. O sonho, a fantasia e a imaginação à revelia. A realidade rapidamente transformada em jogo. Botes baleeiros e lanchas da baleia, feitos com canas da costa. Arriadas, perseguições, arpoamentos, capturas e reboques até fábricas imaginárias. Gestos, mitos e lendas de mares de baleias e de baleeiros a riscar, na ardósia da memória, um tempo de viver. Reinvenção de histórias e de contos de um mar feiticeiro, contados ao colo doce dos nossos pais e avós. E a ilha, toda inteira, à solta, aos pulos, dentro do olhar de uma criança.
    Irmãos do peito, continuamos a olhar para as grandes baleias como personagens principais do mar açoriano, e português, que nos corre nas veias e na massa do sangue da história."
    Manuel Francisco Costa Júnior, Diretor do Museu do Pico

    Edição: julho de 2023

    Portuguese Paperback

    SINOPSE

    Há pouco mais de um ano, Meredith perdeu a sua adorada irmã, Claire. Desde então, foi abandonada pelo namorado, afastou-se de todos, deixou de sair com os amigos e não teve mais cabeça para nada. Porém, este verão, ela quer voltar a viver e está determinada a fazer tudo a que tem direito.

    Como é habitual, a grande família de Meredith prepara-se para ir até Martha's Vineyard. Este ano, até vão ter um casamento na praia, mas o que mais a entusiasma é o já tradicional jogo do Assassino que os Foxes fazem sempre, e no qual Claire adorava participar.

    Contudo, quando Meredith decide escolher Wit, irmão do noivo por afinidade, para parceiro no desafio, os seus planos começam a derrapar. Tenta concentrar-se no jogo, quer ganhá-lo em memória da irmã, mas não consegue pôr um travão nos sentimentos que a invadem. Durante aquela semana, uma tempestade varre a vida de Meredith, que pode mesmo perder o jogo… e o coração.

    Inspirada em músicas de Taylor Swift, esta história mostra-nos que, às vezes, há coisas que temos mesmo de deixar para trás, porque, sob o sol, há uma palavra quente e doce como o verão - felicidade.
