The phenomenal Russian bestseller. A vampire novel set in a richly realized post-Soviet Moscow, The Night Watch has sold across Europe and to 20th Century Fox for huge advances. In The Night Watch, the first of a trilogy, and reminiscent of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials in its ambitions and achievement, the setting is contemporary Moscow. A small number of Muscovites with supernatural powers — those who are Other, owing allegiance either to the Dark or the Light — co-exist in an uneasy truce, each side keeping a close eye on the other’s activities around the city. Anton, an Other on the side of the Light, is a night-watchman, patrolling the streets and Metro of the city as he protects ordinary people from the vampires of the Dark. On his rounds, Anton comes across a young woman, Svetlana, whom he realizes is under a curse that threatens the entire city, and a boy, Igor, a young Other, as yet unaware of his own enormous power. Partnered by Olga, an Other who is in the form of an owl, he struggles to remove the curse and thereby save the city, while at the same time prevent Igor from falling into the clutches of the Dark. The Night Watch explores the nature of good and evil and the tensions between the individual and the collective in a gripping narrative that owes as much to The Master and Margarita as it is does to the richly realized worlds of Philip Pullman and Tolkien. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A vicious storm. Trees and power lines are down. A sick, pregnant young woman walks into E.R.--alone and about to give birth. Dr. Rachel Browne saves the baby. The mother isn't so lucky.... E.R. chief Dr. Guy Giroux is shocked. His ex-wife's eighteen-year-old daughter has died during childbirth--in his E.R. He didn't even know she was pregnant. Guy confronts Dr. Rachel Browne, demanding answers. Rachel could be stubborn, obstinate and downright hardheaded--but faced with Guy's grief and anger she's disarmingly calm, compassionate...even tender. And as Guy and Rachel hunt down the truth, Guy realizes how much he wants to keep the baby...and how much he wants Rachel, too.

Dennis Lee is one of Canada’s most celebrated poets. This long-awaited Selected shows why. Here are definitive new versions of his classic longer works: Civil Elegies, The Death of Harold Ladoo, Riffs. Plus a gathering of notable shorter poems, such as “The Gods” and “Coming Becomes You.” The range is exhilarating, from austere meditation to pure yearning, rage, delight. There is also a gorgeous new sequence, “Nightwatch.” These midlife rants and psalms explore the deep deprivations of our era, in music that moves from the playful to the sublime.
