HIROSHIMOI

“She falls asleep with you, at night. Sees your morning waffle. Smells your fresh-out-of-the-shower scent and knows how water beads on your skin just before you wrap yourself up in a towel.” Translation

BODIES

“I’ve stopped bringing my body out with me again. I date men who don’t have bodies and I pretend I don’t either.” 
Short story

RHAPSODY IN QUEBEC

“The beauty of the world cannot be expressed in one language alone, always the same.” Translation

NEWS FROM MY MOTHER

“I walked from one apartment block to the other, trying to find a trace of your existence. It’s stupid, I know. But I was hoping that the happiness you guys felt forty years ago would have been set in the bricks or concrete, imprisoned in the reflection of the tiles.” 
Short story in translation

NEW FICTION IMPRINT

Fans of Quebec literature will be happy to hear about QC Fiction, a new imprint of bold Quebec fiction in translation.
 
The first title is LIFE IN THE COURT OF MATANE by Eric Dupont. BROTHERS and THE UNKNOWN HUNTSMAN are also now both available in translation, with LISTENING FOR JUPITER (Les corps extraterrestres, which Québec Reads reviewed here, coming soon). Click below to find out more.

Coming up...
We'll be back next month with more interviews, translations, and extracts.

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.
