Special Order - Arrival Times Vary
In Honorarium, Nathaniel G. Moore compiles twenty years worth of reading other people's books, while also faithfully attempting to convey a sense of what it's like to work behind-the-scenes in CanLit. Always breaking from convention, Moore's non-fiction is imbued a sense of urgency, passion and intimacy with the community of creators that surround him; creators that include Derek McCormack, Sheila Heti, Camilla Gibb, Jen Sookfong Lee, Catullus and Chuck Palahniuk. Add the author's backstory of growing up anxious, escaping through literature and giving back to the community he sought out at the century's onset, as well as previously unpublished pieces on book publicity and Amazon, and Honorarium is a both a time capsule and a survey course into the ever-changing, mysterious world of Canadian publishing.
