"Thirty-seven sparkling classics of Quebec fiction [by the Governor-Generals Award-winning founder of the absurdist Rhinoceros Party], in new translations by [Nova Scotian] Betty Bednarski, with an introduction an biographical notes. Jacques Ferron's stories are wonderful. Some are fantastic tall tales in which a bull turns into a lawyer, or a lonely Alberta cow's ghost longs for Quebec, or Ulysses comes back to Ithaca Corner, Ontario. Ferron writes metaphysical fables, sketches of urban life, political satire, portraits of men and women in all walks of life, and wry comedies, with great originality and a profound sympathy for the human condition. Thesebrief, charming tales are among teh most celebrated works in modern Quebec literature." - from the rear cover. Very good. Inscribed by the translator on the flyleaf. 12.50
