French-Canadian novels began as a marginal offshoot of French metropolitan writing and are now read and studied not only in English Canada but around the world. This collection of essays offers a history and analysis of French-Canadian fiction from the 1830s to the present day. Besides discussing a variety of works and writers, most available in English translation, the book explores the rapid development of new women's writing in the last twenty years, treats the art of translation, and presents a bibliography of criticism and anthologies.

Industry Reviews

"Rich in content....An incisive, well-written, objective, and eminently readable survey of the Quebecois novel and will prove very useful for teachers of Quebecois literature and civilization. It should also prove helpful to graduate and undergraduate students who wish to become informed about the evolution of the Quebec novel."--French Forum
