First published in Montreal in 19 75. "Lorsque Mathieu Lelièvre s'envola de Montréal vers Paris, cette année-là, auteur d'un premier roman dont on annonçait la publication prochaine à Paris, boursier du Conseil des Arts, donc déjà riche en imagination, quelleimpatieno». n'éprouvait-il pas de voir le pays tant vénéré depuis son plus jeune age, la France, Paris ? N'allait-il pas seulement vers la conciliati on de l'Europe de ses ancêtres enfin rapprochée de son cœur moderne et romantique — conciliation avec ce Québec souterrain dont il transportait partout avec lui les grondements de révolte ? N'allait-il pas enfin vers la vie ?" Voilà, le sujet est posé : la découverte par un jeune écrivain québécois de la société parisienne — d'une certaine société parisienne. Sur cette aventure, sur ce monde, Marie-Claire Blais pose un regard d'une lucidité redoutable. Mais il y a de la tendresse aussi, et de la pité, dans ces pages ou l'auieur d'Une saison dans la vie d'Emmanuel interoge le destin de tous les"étrangers" — quelle que soit leur "étrangeté". Un roman frémissant, déchi ré et déchirant, qui confirme la place singulière qu'occupe Marie-Claire Biais dans les lettres québecoises et françaises d'aujourd'hui." (from the back cover).

A novel set in the prairie town of Mouse Bluffs, Manitoba. "Haunted in tone, stamped with originality, imagination, and genuine drive. Patricia Blondal's A Candle to Light the Sun is a mesmerising work of fiction, its raw candour striking with the impact of cold metal on exposed nerves. Characters are drawn with meticulous accuracy, the atmosphere crackles with dramatic intensity, and the themes - major and minor- are woven together in a tightly knit fabric of magical prose. [...] A no vel of growth, of deprivation, of compassion, cruelty, courage and weakness, it is filled with irrepressible energy and unopposable vision." - from rear cover of 1976 NCL edition. High praise on the jacket from Desmond Pacey,Hugh Garner, Hugh MacLennan, Margaret Laurence, Gabrielle Roy, and Irving Layton. Very good in very good nicked, edgeworn dustjacket. 35.00
