Variétés Delphi by Nicolas Chalifour

Posted by Caitlin / September 17, 2012

varietes-delphi-2012-09-17.jpg"Variétés Delphi" is Nicolas Chalifour's second novel, published right here in our fair city. If you are French, bilingual, or just care to give reading in French a go (which is highly worth it), I urge you to delve into many of the dark stories published by the small, but extremely high-quality press, Héliotrope. They seem hell-bent on giving exposure to dark-humoured, sombre and engrossing emerging writers and this novel is no exception.

Less Than a Semi-Charmed Kind of Life

Posted by Caitlin / May 16, 2012

une vie inutile-16-05-2012.jpgUne Vie Inutile is Simon Paquet's second novel published at one of my favourite small presses, Héliotrope. Unlike the life of the main character implied by the book's title, it is far from being a useless read. I'm going to urge all of you French-reading bros and babes to get interested in some local franco literature because the voice of the main character, Normand, is everything that is great about so much francophone Québécois writing. He is cynical, self-deprecating, with a tar-black sense of humour and just the appropriate pinch of suicidal tendencies.
