PAPERBACK. 192 pages Crown Quarto format. According to the meta-study ReMAP, between 1992 and 1994 one missionary in twenty prematurely left mission service each year. This implies the loss of half of all missionaries every thirteen years. With this in mind, it is widely thought that a clear sense of call serves to prevent such dropout. This detailed and compassionate study of Mennonite women missionaries in Central Africa finds this to be true-in the short term. But in the long term, the sense of call itself tends to turn on the call-resulting in burnout and dropout. Through extensive field work, the author charts the course of missionaries who remodeled the call-turning its burden into blessing. This is embedded in a careful theological analysis, drawing on a wide sweep of Mennonite thought and praxis.

Many will feel the winds of Armageddon, but not all will survive.

Mitchell Book PrizeWinner of the 2012 Relit Award for Best Novel Longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize Shortlisted for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction Shortlisted for the Alberta Literary Award for Best Fiction A Globe and Mail Best Novel of 2011 A seventeen-year-old boy, bullied and heartbroken, hangs himself. And althoughhe felt terribly alone, his suicide changes everyone around him. His parents are devastated. His secret boyfriend's girlfriend is relieved. His unicorn- and virginity-obsessed classmate, Faraday, is shattered; she wishes she had made friends with him that time she sold him an Iced Cappuccino at Tim Hortons. His English teacher, mid-divorce and mid-menopause, wishes she could remember the dead student's name, that she could care more about her students than her ex's new girlfriend. Who happens to be her cousin. The school guidance counsellor, Walter, feels guilty - maybe he should have made an effort when the kid asked for help. Max, the principal, is worried about how it will reflect on the very Catholic school. And Walter, who's been secretly in a relationship with Max for years, thinks that's a little callous. He's also tired of Max's obsession with some sci-fi show on TV. And Max wishes Walter would lose some weight and remember to use a coaster. And then Max meets a drag queen named Crepe Suzette. And everything changes. Monoceros is a masterpiece of the tragicomic; by exploring the effects of a suicide on characters outside the immediate circle, Mayr offers a dazzlingly original look at the ripple effects - both poignant and funny - of a tragedy. A tender, bold work.
