The little girl who was too fond of matches : a novel by Gaétan Soucy( Book )

91 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alone with their authoritarian father on a vast estate where time has stopped, two siblings speak a language and inhabit a surreal universe of their own making, shaped by their reading of philosophy and tales of chivalry. When their father dies and the children set out to bury him, they encounter the inhabitants of the neighboring village, and the pair's cloak of romance and superstition falls away to reveal the appalling truth of their existence. A brilliant, masterful story in which nothing is as it first seems, "The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches" is a triumph of suspense, linguistic invention, and playfulness that peers into the heart of guilt, cruelty, and violence
The Immaculate Conception by Gaétan Soucy( Book )

"In Montreal in the 1920s, in the working-class parish of the Nativite, seventy-five residents died during one terrible night at the hands of an arsonist. The surviving parishioners must now cope with the aftermath of the felony. Among them are Remouald Tremblay, a seemingly simple-minded bank clerk who spends his days caring for Seraphon, his invalid father, while trying to ward off the nightmarish memories of his childhood; and schoolteacher Clementine Clement, who struggles in solitude to keep from going mad in spite of past tragedies, unrequited passions, and the obsessive suspicion that something is terribly amiss with a group of boys in her class."--Jacket

Gaétan Soucy sets this acclaimed novel in a parallel-universe New York, just before the great stock market crash of 1929. Xavier X. Mortanse is an apprentice demolition worker who believes he's an immigrant from Hungary. By the time Xavier finds a singing frog in a miniature coffin, tries his luck on the vaudeville stage, and upsets a grandmaster chess match, Soucy has seduced readers into a netherworld of unforgettable eccentrics that riffs on chaos, corruption, and the surprising light of the human spirit
Atonement : a novel by Gaétan Soucy( Book )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years after being chased out of his tiny village, Louis Bapaume returns to Saint-Aldor to make amends. Over the course of one bright winter solstice, Bapaume confronts old neighbors and villagers and encounters haunting figures he can't quite recognize. But there's only one person he seeks: the twin girl he taught to read music and to whom he wishes to atone. In this intricate, disquieting novel, the line between reality and dreams shifts in the swirling storm of one man's conscience
Catoblépas : théâtre by Gaétan Soucy( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deux mères - une religieuse et une femme qui sort d'un hôpital psychiatrique - se disputent un enfant devenu génial musicien. Accueillie avec circonspection par une partie de la critique, cette courte pièce est présentée comme le prolongement du roman très remarqué ##La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes##, dont elle reprend les thèmes sous l'angle de "l'emprise terrible des mères" (G.S.). Selon R. Martel, le drame qui constitue l'oeuvre est "à l'étroit dans un espace discursif qui n'a pas les moyens du roman". Le texte de la pièce est suivi d'une entrevue, p. 63-100. [SDM]
