Ribsauce: A CD/Anthology of Words by Women

Edited by Taien Ng-Chan and Alex Boutros

"Editor Taien Ng-Chan has done an impressive job of selecting some of the finest writers around, regardless of gender...Almost every page in the book is a revelation, and I can't recommend it highly enough; suffice it to say that this is a collection that will be treasured by many." -Melora Koepke, Montreal Hour

"More than simply a feminist project, Ribsauce is an exploration of the region where sound, meaning and performance intersect. As these women demonstrate, literature is moving beyond poets at podiums and novel-reading in armchairs." -Montreal Gazette

"A few simple elements make this anthology quite effective beyond a collection of fresh, young voices. First is the neo-feminist iconoclasm of a title like "ribsauce" with its play upon American culture and biblical origins. Second is the inclusion of literal, rather than merely literary, voices in the form of a 16-track CD of stunning spoken word performances. This means that Ribsauce manages to entertain, while defying expectations." -Digital Journal

"An ambitious project...brash and touching." -Maria Simpson, Montreal Review of Books

"Impeccably produced." -Cantext
