Lise Gauvin, Nigel Spencer
2012
This is a translation by two-time Governor-General's award-recipient Nigel Spencer of award-winning Quebecois writer Lise Gauvin's 2003 short story collection. The collection features intimate spaces within public places and how these can encroach on one another in subtle yet dangerous ways.
