CROSSING TO TADOUSSAC by Frederick E. Bryson 438 pages | 5 x 8 | ISBN 978-1-926716-00-8 | Softcover
Crossing to Tadoussac is a novel about a woman coming of age in Quebec during the years of the Quiet Revolution. With the political turmoil in the province mirroring the psychological conflict in her person, our heroine finds herself searching for the balance of freedom and liberation in her own life and person, while witnessing this same internal struggle reproduced in the conflict of her people coming to maturity and seizing their place in the world. She quickly understands that to realize her personal emancipation, she must join the chorus of the crowd that she hears manifesting on the streets. At first, she idealizes the leaders of the movement, and then slowly returns to a more pragmatic and realistic view of the group, as she matures and the novel progresses in time. A sensitive and realistic portrait, "Crossing to Tadoussac" evokes the experience of being a Quebecker in the reader, awakening the historical and spiritual struggles that have formed the province and its people.
A modern and radical work, Unfictions dramatizes the way in which we react to such an information-rich environment in all of its glorious simultaneity--the beginning of a type of 'New Realism' in letters – reflecting faithfully a society so saturated with events and quotations that it can no longer distinguish between them and their relative meanings.

Call it home; call it exile in a kingdom of rain. - Empire Burlesque, Charles Talkoff
