À train perdu
After And The Birds Rained Down, a stunning meditation on aging and freedom, Jocelyne Saucier is back with her unique outlook on self-determination in this unsettling story about a woman’s disappearance.
Gladys is born aboard a train as it winds its way through northern Ontario’s most remote regions. On these same rails, she spends rapturous years in the company of her siblings and the other children she meets at each stop. On these rails, she finds love.
“Once you’ve known happiness, it’s impossible to believe you’ll never know it again.”
But what prompted this ardent optimist, now in the winter of her life, to jump from train to train and evade all attempts to bring her home? The question haunts her friends, as well as a railroad activist who will not be deterred. Someone, somewhere, must know what drove Gladys to leave Swastika far behind.
Il pleuvait des oiseaux
July 29, 1916. In the woods of Northern Ontario, the flames are rising. Many decades later, a photographer takes interest in the survivors of those Great Fires. She will come to know some of them, venerable old hermits living deep in the woods, still prizing their freedom.
The narrator of Gimme Shelter, returns as a love story gradually develops between her and Raphaëlle, a rebel wildlife ranger. In this ecofeminist thriller, the lens is now turned to excessive hunting practices and the fast-fashion market.

Simone Simoneau, Sissi to friends, wants to do more. Citizen engagement, social justice, environmental issues, women’s rights: if we want things to change, shouldn’t we be willing to jump into the fray?
Simone Simoneau combines the real-life experiences of Valérie Plante, mayor of Montreal, with the talents of Delphie Côté-Lacroix, award-winning illustrator. This playful, personal interpretation of Simone’s foray into politics tells the story of one woman who decides to follow her instincts in spite of the political machinery working against her.
Beautifully illustrated and visually stunning, the book serves as an introduction of sorts to political activism—and more broadly citizen engagement—accessible to a wide readership interested in public affairs.
Diane demande un recomptage
After Autopsy of a Boring Wife, Diane is back in this follow-up novel chronicling her adventures in the dating world as she embarks on a new career. Her marriage may be over, but she has more than enough love to go around and gives it away generously.
“Lavoie continues to bring her brand of intelligent pop fiction to life using clever and accessible language that steers clear of clichés. A feel good book? Absolutely. Where other novels rankle for their always-happily-ever-after formula, the author of Autopsy of a Boring Wife reminds readers that friendship, generosity and a good bottle of wine can do wonders to ease life’s misfortunes.”—Le Devoir
