Abstract:

"Jack Waterman owns a bookstore in Ouebec City. He lives there, but works at the university, where he translates the Canadian Dictionary of Biography. He is an inspiration to writers, one of whom, Jimmy, stumbles into his store." "Jimmy has no roots; he knows he wants to be a writer, but he does not know how. He needs to learn and to gain experience. Jack Waterman takes on the role of his mentor. Jimmy goes to Paris, where he walks in the footsteps of Hemingway and Joyce, but he is called to return to Quebec because Jack has taken a turn for the worse." "Jack suffers from "Eisenhower's disease," his name for Alzheimer's, and although it is progressing slowly, he is well aware that at some point soon he is going to lose his faculties completely. It is his intention to take his own life before he becomes a burden to those he loves."--Jacket.
