In bookshops on October 7, 2022
Les éditions Marchand de Feuilles has announced that Femme fleuve, the new novel by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette, will be available in bookstores on Friday, October 7, 2022. This book is an ode to freedom and feminine desire, to the search for beauty, and takes root somewhere on an island in the St. Lawrence River.
A painter finds himself on the shore of a great river in order to reproduce its blue when a woman turns his life upside down. Like two lovers who met too late, they take refuge in each other. A luminous vow of wild beauty, this new novel by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette carries on its wings the resilience of oysters that make a pearl out of their wound, the majesty of the giant lily that blooms only every seven years, and the audacity of all women who have decided to write their desire.
Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette is a filmmaker and author of the cult novel La femme qui fuit, which woń the Prix des libraires du Québec, the Grand Prix du livre de Montréal, and the Prix littéraire France-Québec. Femme fleuve is her fourth novel. Published by Marchand de Feuilles, this 256-page book will be available in bookstores for $26.95 on Friday, October 7, 2022.
