Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: Books in Quebec

Continuing on my cross-country Listed tour, this week I am focusing on books that take place in the province of Quebec. Sadly to say, I haven’t read nearly as many books taking place in Quebec as I had thought… so I’ve really only read a couple of these, but the rest I’ve either heard of or (after doing a bit of research looking for the books for this post) now really want to read.

  1. The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz by Mordecai Richler. Originally Published 1959. LT
  2. Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs. Originally Published 1997. LT
  3. The Blooding of Jack Absolute by C.C. Humphreys. Originally Published 2004. LT
  4. Two Solitudes by Hugh MacLennan. Originally Published 1945. LT
  5. Shadows on the Rock by Willa Cather. Originally Published 1931. LT
  6. The Tin Flute by Gabrielle Roy. Originally Published 1945. LT
  7. Surfacing by Margaret Atwood. Originally Published 1972. LT
  8. La Guerre, Yes Sir! by Roch Carrier. Originally Published 1968. LT
  9. Kamouraska by Anne Hebert. Originally Published 1970. LT
  10. Alone in an Untamed Land by Maxine Trottier. Originally Published 2003. LT

    The Sweater by Roch Carrier

    I love Kathy Reichs’ Temperance Brennan series. (On which Bones the TV show is based.) Many of the series take place in Montreal. (I know, not very literary, but still interesting.)

    Duddy Kravitz was so annoying! I really did not like that book when I read it!

    Kelly – Duddy Kravitz is one of my most hated books EVER.
