♦ Description : “Louise? How lucky you have been on her. She was like a second mother for my boys. It was a real heartbreak when we had to separate. To be honest, at the time, I even thought of having a third child to be able to keep it. “When Myriam decides despite her husband’s reluctance to resume her activity in a law firm, the couple is looking for a nanny. After a severe casting, they engage Louise and are conquered by her ease with Mila and Adam, and by the care soon indispensable that it brings to their home, letting gradually settle the trap of mutual dependence.”

Description : A young woman from Montreal follows the geese to the Inuit North in this deeply felt witnessing of contemporary Aboriginal life, as shaped by decades of colonial rule and government neglect. Having worked in the North for years, Juliana L�veill�-Trudel's account of the Indigenous experience offers a portrait of a valiant people undaunted by institutionalized racism, but in many cases broken by domestic violence, and corrupted by corporate mining and the presence of temporary workers up for the summer from the South in search of big paycheques. Delivered across two searing monologues, Nirliit is a testament to a people's perseverance as much as it is an apology by those who inflicted those circumstances upon them. L�veill�-Trudel courageously transcends the borders between historical divisions to make a meaningful individual connection.

Description : We come / to kneel at the doorway, / to peer into that kind of / dark. To think our way / backwards, listening. Tracing a series of journeys, real and imagined, Kelly Norah Drukker’s Small Fires opens with a section of poems set on Inis Mór, a remote, Irish-speaking island off the west coast of County Galway, where the poet-as-speaker discovers the ways in which remnants of the island’s early Christian monastic culture brush up against island life in the twenty-first century. Also present is a series of poems set in the Midi-Pyrénées and in the countryside around Lyon. Linked to the shorter poems in the collection by landscape, theme, and tone is a set of longer narrative poems that give voice to imagined speakers who are, each in a different way, living on the margins. The first describes a young emigrant woman’s crossing from Ireland to Canada in the early twentieth century, where she must sacrifice her tie to the land for the uncertain freedom of a journey by sea, while a second depicts the lives of silk workers living under oppressive conditions in Lyon in the 1830s. In detailed and musical language, the poems in Small Fires highlight aspects of landscape and culture in regions that are haunted by marginal and silenced histories. The collection concludes with a long poem written as a response to American writer Paul Monette’s autobiographical work Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir.

Description : From the New York Times bestselling author of A Million Little Pieces and Bright Shiny Morning comes Katerina, James Frey’s highly anticipated new novel set in 1992 Paris and contemporary Los Angeles. A kiss, a touch. A smile and a beating heart. Love and sex and dreams, art and drugs and the madness of youth. Betrayal and heartbreak, regret and pain, the melancholy of age. Katerina, the explosive new novel by America’s most controversial writer, is a sweeping love story alternating between 1992 Paris and Los Angeles in 2018. At its center are a young writer and a young model on the verge of fame, both reckless, impulsive, addicted, and deeply in love. Twenty-five years later, the writer is rich, famous, and numb, and he wants to drive his car into a tree, when he receives an anonymous message that draws him back to the life, and possibly the love, he abandoned years prior. Written in the same percussive, propulsive, dazzling, breathtaking style as A Million Little Pieces, Katerina echoes and complements that most controversial of memoirs, and plays with the same issues of fiction and reality that created, nearly destroyed, and then recreated James Frey in the American imagination.

Description : There's something extraordinary about Thomas Langlois. Thomas is a young boy growing up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with a French-Canadian father, Albert, and an American mother, Laura. But beyond the fact that he lives between two cultures and languages, there's something else about Thomas that sets him apart: he was born on February 29. Before Albert goes on a strange quest to find out more about their mysterious relative, Aim� Bolduc, he explains to Thomas that he will only age one year out of every four and he will outlive all of his loved ones. Thomas's loneliness grows and the years pass until a terrible accident involving a young girl sets in motion a series of events that link the young girl and Thomas to Aim� Bolduc -- a Civil War-era soldier and perhaps their contemporary. Spanning three centuries and set against the backdrop of the Appalachians, from Quebec to Tennessee, The Longest Year is a magical and poignant story about family history, fateful dates, fragile destinies, and lives brutally ended and mysteriously extended.
