All My Friends Are Superheroes  

by Andrew Kaufman (Coach House)

Now with green type and gorgeous illustrations by Tom Percival, the 10th-anniversary edition of Kaufman’s acclaimed love letter to Toronto, All My Friends Are Superheroes, has never been better. After the Perfectionist is hypnotized by her ex-boyfriend (Hypno) at her own wedding to believe that her brand new husband, Tom, is invisible, she leaves for Vancouver. This adorable domestic adventure follows Tom as he attempts to get her to see him again. Part magic realist love story novella, part catalogue of superheroes currently living in the GTA, this lucky charm of a book is one you will cherish, re-read when you’re feeling sad and daydream about the rest of the time (you’ll also find yourself trying to invent your own superheroes). This edition features “Even More Superheroes,” including “Former Roommates of the Perfectionist,” “Power Couples” and “Superheroes Tom Wishes He Were.” Don’t miss out on this even better version of a classic Canadian book.
