I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE 
Combines the true story of Canadian daredevil and stunt driver Ken Carter (1938-1983) with imagined biographical elements from the lives of Canadian film director Bruce McDonald and Canadian poet Gillian Sze.  "Michael Blouin has written a brilliant and complex narrative that vacillates through fractured prose. I Don't Know How to Behave is notably reminiscent of another Canadian writer, Michael Turner, as it was MacDonald who adapted Turner's Hard Core Logo for film, subsequently turning it into his best-known work." - Sheena Lyonnais, This Magazine

WORE DOWN TRUST


The author  maintains no genre has yet been coined to describe his book properly. He's right, although the clever mix of poetry and prose is reminiscent of Ondaatje's The Collected Works of Billy the Kid. Alternately, think of it as a daily devotional. You can pick it up, open it at random, read a few lines, stop, and then ponder the mysteries of life as they enveloped Johnny Cash and Alden Nowlan. Tomorrow and the next day, the experience can be repeated; a few more lines can be savoured.

(Paul Gessell. The National Post). Winner of The Lampman Award.

CHASE AND HAVEN


Chase and Haven is a haunting story – inventively told and deeply felt – of suffering and love, made of thousands of small impressionist facets that refract the quiet spectrum of the beauty and the detritus of two entwined lives. (Alana Wilcox) Winner of the Relit Award - Best Novel in Canada, Finalist for the Amazon First Novel Award.

I'M NOT GOING TO LIE TO YOU


The poems in I’m not going to lie to you arise from a place of inquiry into the nature of that which we call home and of the people whom we call loved, reminding us that in  small details wonder and awe  exist.

(Beth Follett). Shortlisted for the ReLit Award.
