QUOTE OF THE MONTH

“My cause,” he says, “is to find what I lost. Or at least not to lose anything more.”

Latest Articles

SPORTS ET DIVERTISSEMENTS

Every minute spent in this anti-hero’s company is a delight. There are dizzyingly great drunken scenes, there’s cocaine, orgies, spiked drinks, illegal border crossings, unfastened seatbelts, bad sex, a suicide, and more bad sex. Review

ZORA, UN CONTE CRUEL

Set in a make-believe 19th century Finland, Zora is beautifully original. Above all else, it’s a story. And what a story. What a book.
Review + extract in translation

LES PEAUX CASSÉES

Richard works at a clinic repairing “broken skin.” We’re in an allegory. And more often than not Dallaire’s metaphors are taken literally, taking on a physical presence in this world of his imagination. Review

Coming up...

We'll be back in March with a review of Martin Michaud's fiction, an extract in translation from Les peaux cassées (Richard Dallaire, Alto), and more.

Until then, if you have any feedback or would like to get in touch with an idea about a review or translation, we'd love to hear from you.
