You’ve been waiting for it! Part two of Douglas and McIntyre’s Fall Preview is now released.
Gidal, edited by Alan Twigg, is an intimate selection of letters between Tim Gidal, a pioneering force in photojournalism, and scholar and art collector Yosef Wosk. This volume’s 60 letters and 60 photographs not only showcase the friendship of Wosk and Gidal, but they also reveal rare perspectives of interwar Europe, taken prior to the annihilation of WWII. Filled with modern Jewish History, early 20th-century photography and the story of an unusual friendship, this work will appeal to many.
Two distinct novels on Douglas & McIntyre’s list delve into subjects of marriage and murder as they closely follow their characters’ reactions when faced with different situations.

Together the couple will face poverty, infidelity, and troubled teenagers. Told through captivating details, Hough creates a fascinating story out of an ordinary life.
Vile Spirits, written by John MacLachlan Gray, is an exhilarating page-turner set in 1920s Vancouver post prohibition. In this follow-up to his mystery The White Angel, Gray’s characters are tossed into a liquor-fuelled murder mystery, making for an exciting and unpredictable adventure.
