A Blanket Against Darkness [9780776627472]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
In these Nordic woods where the ancestors called blowing snow the sweet breath of death, an artist fashions bewitching jewels out of feathers, a man of fifty-four corresponds with the author of a bottled message thrown out to sea, another awaits the onslaught of the storm to open wide his mouth and drink it whole.
Nature flares its gills, in this book, where forgiveness is both sought after and offered. A Blanket Against Darkness bursts with stories that spring from the earth. Its relic-filled landscapes, where one single movement can set off the migration of an entire colony, are constant reminders that one is never completely alone.
Published by Marchand de feuilles in 2015, Traite des peaux was shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Awards and for the Prix des Cinq continents de la Francophonie.
This book is published in English, translated from the original Traite des peaux .
-
En ces forets nordiques ou les ancetres appellent la poudrerie le souffle de la mort, une joailliere fabrique des bijoux avec des plumes d'oiseaux, un homme de 54 ans correspond avec celui qui a envoye un message dans une bouteille jetee a la mer, un autre attend que l'orage eclate pour ouvrir la bouche et le boire en entier.
La nature ouvre ses branchies, dans ce livre, ou l'on demande et propose le pardon. A Blanket Against Darkness est rempli de talismans qui viennent de la terre. Ses paysages nous montrent que nous sommes un peuple nordique et que nous ne sommes pas seuls au monde. Nous habitons des lieux peuples de reliques, ou un seul mouvement brusque peut faire migrer toute une colonie.
Paru chez Marchand de feuilles en 2015, Traite des peaux a ete finaliste aux Prix litteraires du Gouverneur general, de meme qu'au Prix des Cinq continents de la Francophonie.
Ce livre est publie en anglais, une traduction du titre original Traite des peaux .
