No country without grandfathers by Roch Carrier( Book )
23 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in French and English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Un roman grave et optimiste qui, selon R. Martel, dénonce le mépris condescendant ou simplement grossier dont nous entourons aujourd'hui nos vieillards. C'est bien dans la logique de notre société de consommation de les considérer comme des déchus, des "producteurs taris". Roch Carrier dont l'oeuvre, depuis quelques années, marquait le pas, "par Menaud interposé, tend la main à Louis Hémon pour témoigner de la paradoxale vitalité d'un peuple dépossédé mais qu'on croirait inapte au désespoir". [SDM]
