Metatron has announced its Fall 2K15 Catalog composed of three new titles, all literary debuts: Pony Castle by Sofia Banzhaf, Teen Surf Goth by Oscar d’Artois, and Looking Good and Having a Good Time by Fawn Parker.
Sofia Banzhaf is a Toronto-based writer, filmmaker and actress. Pony Castle was the winner of the 2015 Metatron Prize for Rising Authors of Contemporary Literature. She recently appeared at TIFF for the premiere of Closet Monster, which won three awards including the Best Canadian Feature Film. Canadian novelist Lynn Crosbie recommends you “[w]olf down Pony Castle, then eat every last sweet, singing crumb” and American novelist Sarah Gerard describes it as “a straight chute to the most depraved of human behaviours” in which Banzhaf finds “grace and humanity.”
Oscar d’Artois’s unique debut collection of poetry, Teen Surf Goth, is a peripatetic search for poetic consciousness and metaphysical bliss waylaid by nut butters, memes and self-doubt, among others. American poet Melissa Broder described it as “a book of fantasy built on internet dreams.”
Fawn Parker, who lives in Montreal, studies Creative Writing at Concordia University. Her booklet of short stories Looking Good and Having a Good Time has been called “wry, surprising, and seemingly effortless” by QWF First Book Prize-winning author Anna Leventhal.
