Quattro Books

They aim to fulfill the vision that Canada is extremely diverse and the literature it produces, regardless of its style, or the context that informs it, should be accessible to all. Quattro places special emphasis on the literary novella, or short novel, a narrative form with strong roots in European and Latin American literature, but not issued by many Canadian trade publishers.
