41 ARCHIBALD, Samuel. WINKLER, Donald, trans. Biblioasis International Translation series. Arvida. Stories. Signed Paperback.
Biblioasis, Windsor, Ontario, 2015, ISBN:9781771960427 
ARCHIBALD, Samuel. Arvida. Stories. Translated from the French by Donald Winkler. Windsor, Ontario : Biblioasis, (2015). Second Printing. Pp. (8),9-213,(3). 8vo, art-illustrated black card covers with grey lettering to front cover and spine. A volume in the Biblioasis International Translation series. General editor: Stephen Henighan. Shortlisted for the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize. "Like a Proust-obsessed Cormac McCarthy, Samuel Archibald's portrait of his hometown is filled with innocent children and wild beasts, attempted murder and ritual mutilation, haunted houses and road trips to nowhere, bad men and mysterious women. Gothic, fantastical, and incandescent, filled with stories of everyday wonder and terror, longing and love, 'Arvida'explores the line which separates memory from story, and heralds the arriv al of an important new voice." - from the rear cover. Includes the following stories: "My Father and Proust [Arvida I]", "Antigonish", "Cryptozoology", "In the Midst of the Spiders", "America", "In the Fields of the Lord [Blood Sisters I]", "A Mirror in the Mirror", "The Animal [Blood Sisters II]", "Jigai", "Paris in the Rain [Blood Sisters III]", "The Centre of Leisure and Forgetfulness [Arvida II]", "The Last-Born", "House-Bound", and "Madeleines [Arvida III]". Very good. Signed by the author on the half-title page. 20.00
