Overview

Jovette Marchessault's Lesbian Triptych is an anthology of three stories - "Night Cows," "A Lesbian Chronicle from Medieval Quebec" and "The Angel Makers" - evoking the best of the new wave of feminist writing in Quebec. Sensuous and fabulous language turn conventional images of women inside out; Marchessault challenges us to remake our patterns of language in a way that explodes the stereotypes of the past and ecstatically explores the contours of a feminist vision for the future. Anglophone readers will find a new magic, new revelations, a new name of women's experience in the work of this Quebecoise word-spinner.
