“There are many threads to untangle here and Bourrie—journalist, academic, and lawyer—unpicks them all. Spanning the first half of 20th-century Ontario, [George] McCullagh’s life and times become an engrossing tale of ambition, politics and bipolar illness—it’s like little else we’re likely to read this year. … It was a tumultuous life, and Bourrie tells it with wit and humour.”

Querelle of Roberval (August 2, 2022) by Kevin Lambert, translated by Donald Winkler, was featured in an interview at CBC Books. You can read the whole interview here.
In the interview, Kevin writes,
“Querelle of Roberval isn’t about hope or morality. I wanted to create a sensation of resistance, or an ecstatic reaction, versus a boring message about ‘we can change things if we all work together’ or anything like that. Also, I hope readers discover a part of Quebec that is not the one often presented in fiction.”
