Read an excerpt from the 2018 Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist.
published in translation
“Life is made up of conflict, pleasure, harmony, and dissonance. The same elements are found in music, art, and the novels of Eric Dupont.”
“Darkness is everywhere on the reader’s descent.”
“The islands are dropped words, outstripping thought. Like splattered chapters. Heading in every direction.”
Something lurks right underneath the surface, in the nameless gap between passion and reason.
“Caron superbly captures the loneliness, confusion, and fear that come with forgetting.”
