Talonbooks' mandate is to publish work of the highest literary merit by world class authors from the mainstream and the margins of Canada’s three founding nations, as well as from both visible and invisible minorities within Canada’s cultural mosaic, and to work with all of our authors to build their national and international literary careers throughout their active writing lives.

The Workhorsery offers you Canadian fiction without oppression, without the suffering. All those sensitive coming-of-age tragedies and poetic odes to the blowing wheat of the prairies have left you defeated. You have wandered the landscape of the Canadian novel and you have knelt and wept, traumatized by the weight of these stories. We understand. The Workhorsery is holding its arms out to you, waiting to offer comfort with stories that don't hurt. Non-traumatizing Canadian fiction does exist. No, really, it does. And we want to prove it to you.
