Quattro Books publishes new and established authors whose work has outstanding literary merit. We aim to fulfill the vision that Canada is extremely diverse, and the literature it produces, regardless or its style or the context that informs it, should be for everyone. Rather than favouring one specific ethnic, regional or aesthetic voice, we promote literary border-crossing and cross-pollination. We place special emphasis on the novella, a genre with strong roots in European and Latin American literature but not issued to many Canadian trade publishers. Our rather main focus is poetry, where we favour innovative writing that departs from conventional realism. We continue to translate, publish and promote the literary novella in the English language, and we hope to publish at least a dozen novellas per year.
Poetry, Fiction & Literature,
