"Bock's language crackles with the energy of a Québécois folk song, impassioned and celebratory but also melancholy and cheekily ironic." —The New Yorker, on Atavisms A young, floundering author meets Robert "Baloney" Lacerte, an older, marginal poet who seems to own nothing beyond his unwavering certainty. Over the course of one summer evening, Lacerte recounts his unrelenting quest for poetry, which has taken him from Quebec's Boreal forests to South America to East Montreal, where he seems poised to disappear without a trace. But as the blocked writer discovers, Lacerte might just be full of it. Maxime Raymond Bock lives in Montreal, Quebec. Atavisms, his first book, won the Prix Adrienne-Choquette. Pablo Strauss, who translated Atavisms, lives in Quebec City, Quebec.

~Double Baloney~ is a compilation of 130 pages of mock-haiku and pseudolimericks, rather baroquely written so that each item is one relatively sweeping 'sentence.' On every page is one mock-haiku plus one psuedolimerick, and the individual items on each page have quite identical titles. A very strong attempt has been made to push the language of the individual pieces toward much grammatical correctness, so that the final verbal effects might seem lapidary if not absolutely epigrammatic. Much entertainment supposedly may be had in terms of noticing how the English language is played with.

From the streets of Peckham to the neon-lit strip of Las Vegas, Frank Maloney's life has been a roller-coaster ride that even he finds hard to believe at times. The Cockney-born son of Irish parents, who once harboured thoughts of becoming a priest, instead went on to manage Lennox Lewis for 12 years and help him become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.In No Baloney, Frank lifts the lid on the world of big-time boxing and its household names, and gives a remarkable account of his time with Lewis, revealing stories and offering opinions that can only come from a true insider. He also gives an insight into the way money, sex, drugs, politics, bribery and corruption have played their part in the sport. But Maloney's story is not just about boxing. It is also about one of life's characters, whose colourful story is told with a brand of humour and emotion that makes it compelling reading. Before settling on a career in boxing, he tried his hand at being a jockey, street trader, chef, pub landlord, cab driver and greengrocer. Along the way there have been girls, fights, a murder investigation and a broken marriage, but through it all there has also been a determination to succeed against the odds. Once dubbed a 'Mental Midget' and 'Pugilistic Pygmy' by Don King, Frank Maloney has gone on to have the last laugh over the flamboyant American promoter and over those who believed he would fail. For, above all, No Baloney is the story of a man who has been lucky enough to experience the kind of life he could not have imagined in his wildest dreams all those years ago in south-east London - and Maloney has made sure he's lived it to the full.

Double Baloney ~~TWO~~ (a sort of sequel of 240 brief and quite standardly rhymed items to the same author's recent **Double Baloney**) has a noticeably divergent formulaic aspect. At the top of every textual page of Double Baloney ~~TWO~~ should be a limerick that perhaps none too galumphingly forms an entire sweeping sentence; at the bottom of each textual page should be an I LIKE sort of couplet the book's author awhile back invented and now very much enjoys composing. Each limerick and every concomitant couplet might seem specially linked in that the title of each limerick is included in the title and the opening line of its accompanying I LIKE couplet. The author's entire aspiration had much to do with grammatical excellence as possibly helping produce strong semblances of wit.
