Overview

In the isolated parish of Nativité, 75 residents have recently died in a blaze. The survivors’ fractured world is suffocatingly circumscribed by neighbors and the Church. Focusing on troubled bank clerk Remouald Tremblay and desperately unrequited Clémentine Clément, Gaétan Soucy’s acclaimed fourth novel explores the same ominously enchanted terrain as his award-winning Vaudeville! Soucy brilliantly illuminates the dark corners where ordinary people fear to look and reminds that for every moment of justice, there are numerous crimes that will remain forever secret.

This book was one of the most profound books I have ever read. A book that makes you ponder on your past and present and your future. A book that makes you reflect upon oneself. Perverse and yet compelling. It is a fast read, where you can't put the book down. What is most expected is not at all! The book is well written and very well translated. It is an excellant book!
