Nikolski : a novel by Nicolas Dickner( Book )

69 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a story of three characters--Noah, Joyce, and the anonymous narrator--as each leave their far-flung birthplaces to follow their own personal songs of migration. All three end up in Montreal, each on his or her voyage of selfdiscovery, each compelled to deal with the mishaps of heartbreak and the twisted branches of their shared family tree. Filled with humor, charm, and marvelous storytelling, this novel links cartography, garbage-obsessed archeologists, pirates past and present, a mysterious book with no cover, and a broken compass whose needle obstinately points to the Aleutian village of Nikolski (a minuscule village inhabited by thirty-six people, five thousand sheep, and an indeterminate number of dogs). This is a sweet, well-told story about three characters who break free from their families in order to live authentically

Révolutions by Dominique Fortier( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les révolutionnaires français ne se contentèrent pas de guillotiner le roi, de prendre la Bastille et de raccourcir bonne quantité d'aristocrates : ils renversèrent aussi le calendrier, créant douze nouveaux mois dont les noms étaient censés évoquer les divers moments de l'année : vendémiaire, pluviôse, germinal. Ce qu'on sait moins, c'est qu'ils en chassèrent aussi tous les saints au qui leur rappelaient trop l'Ancien Régime, pour placer chaque jour de l'année sous les auspices d'une plante, d'un animal ou d'un outil censés incarner et exalter les vertus républicaines. Le calendrier révolutionnaire utilisé de 1793 à 1806 semble ainsi procéder à la fois de l'herbier, du bestiaire et de l'encyclopédie. Deux siècles plus tard, une paire de citoyens curieux, Dominique Fortier et Nicolas Dickner, ont chargé un certain Reginald Jeeves, ingénieux majordome informatique, de leur envoyer quotidiennement le mot du jour qu'ils revisiteraient jusqu'à combler les 366 cases du calendrier. Truffé de petites et de grandes révélations, Révolutions est une entreprise littéraire sans précédant qui décapite joyeusement les idées reçues
Born Weird by Andrew Kaufman( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Weirds have always been a little peculiar, but not one of them suspected that they'd been cursed by their grandmother. At the moment of their birth Annie Weird gave each of her five grandchildren a special power that she thought was a blessing. Richard, the oldest, always keeps safe; Abba always has hope; Lucy is never lost and Kent can beat anyone in a fight. As for Angie, she always forgives, instantly. But over the years these blessings have proved to be curses and ruined their lives. Now Annie is dying and she has one last task for Angie, her favourite grandchild. Angie has to gather her far-flung brothers and sisters and assemble them in her Grandmother's hospital room so that at the moment of her death, she can lift these blessings turned curses
Nikolski by Nicolas Dickner( Recording )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in French and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spring 1989. Three young people - Noah, Joyce and an unnamed narrator - leave their far-flung birthplaces to end up in Montreal, each on a voyage of self-discovery. A tale that shows the surprising links between garbage-obsessed archeologists, pirates past and present, earthquake victims, sea snakes, several very large tuna fish, an illiterate deep-sea diver, a Commodore 64, a mysterious book with no cover, and a broken compass whose needle obstinately points to the Aleutian village of Nikolski
La littérature québécoise en 30 secondes : les genres, les auteurs et les livres les plus marquants expliqués en moins d'une minute by Michel Laurin( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sans doute peut-on tous nommer quelques écrivains ou romans phares de la littérature québécoise. On n'a qu'à penser à Émile Nelligan, Anne Hébert, Dany Laferrière ou encore Le Survenant ou Bonheur d'occasion. Mais connaissez-vous les textes fondateurs écrits par des jésuites venus à la conquête du Nouveau Monde ? Ceux qui ont été mis plus tard à l'index par l'Œuvre des bons livres ? Ceux qui ont annoncé l'arrivée de la littérature québécoise dans la modernité ? Et que dire des livres de genres, qui revendiquent aujourd'hui leurs lettres de noblesse ? Notre riche littérature se résume à bien plus que quelques classiques. La connaître, c'est comprendre les tournants de l'histoire qui l'ont fait naître et qui l'ont nourrie. Cette rétrospective permet de mesurer le chemin parcouru, de le comparer aux autres littératures et de se faire une idée sur l’avenir de la nôtre."--Page 4 de la couverture
