Clean, tight, unmarked; light age tanning; small crease across spine; otherwise very minimal wear; The eighteen stories in this book centre upon the bitter-sweet experiences of a young girl growing up in the francophone community of St. Boniface, Manitoba. In the persona of her narrator Christine, Roy transfigures the incidents and characters of her own childhood, reflecting with gentle irony upon her youthful awakening to the beauty and the sorrow of life. Acclaimed upon its original publication in French in 1955, this superb collection infuses the authenticity of memoir with the timelessness and universality of the best imaginative art.
