Shipping to United States: Free

This collection contains 5 short stories about my Grandparents, parents and sister and I, while I was growing up. It is very loosely based on facts but much fictionalized as well. The names have all been changed.

It was written over 20 days, in mid August 2022 and beginning of September that year. It was translated into French at the end of August. The English texts are the original texts.

It was previously for sale for 6$ as a pdf digital file in 2022 and beginning 2023. It is now available in paper print.

REVIEW by reader on The Poetry Dervish:

'Beautiful little stories that intertwine and highlight the characters of three generations of the same family. Quebeckers and even Canadians with roots in rural areas over the past century will undoubtedly be affected. This as much by the human side of the protagonists as by the feeling of déjà vu that settles in us when reading the texts. Another excellent book by this local writer.' Jean Francois, Feb 13, 2023
