Praise is already glowing for this first novel under the new QC Fiction imprint, founded and headed by fiction editor and literary translator Peter McCambridge.
Here’s Publishers Weekly on the novel, the author, and the translator:
“This novel from Dupont … the first from a new fiction imprint dedicated to publishing ‘the very best of a new generation of Quebec storytellers in flawless English translation,’ lives up to that ambition. … By turns poignant, playful, and nostalgic, the book evokes ’70s Quebec with the quirky but successful device of combining an autobiographical family story with motifs drawn from fable, history, politics and myth. … Translator McCambridge beautifully captures the joyous top notes and the darker undercurrents of this fascinating voice.”
Baraka Books would like to congratulate Peter McCambridge for his wise choice for the first QC Fiction novel and Eric Dupont and Peter for their imagination and creativity. Life in the Court of Matane is the translation of Bestiaire first published in French by Marchand de feuilles.
QC Fiction was officially announced in December 2015.
