st lawrence blues by marie-claire blais

Currently reading.  I’m only four novels into her work, but she has quickly become one of my  favorite Canadian fiction authors.  The other being Mordecai Richler (Leonard Cohen for poetry!). I wholeheartedly recommend “Mad Shadows” and “A Season in the Life of Emmanuel” if you love excellent word-craft and storytelling.
