Autopsy of a Boring Wife by Marie-Renée Lavoie is on the Canada Reads 2021 longlist!


Autopsy of a Boring Wife by Marie-Renée Lavoie (Autopsie d’une femme plate in French) is on the Canada Reads 2021 longlist. Canada Reads is a « literary Survivor, » with celebrities championing books. Each day, panellists vote to eliminate one book, until a single title is chosen as the title the whole country should read this year. The panellists and the books they choose to champion will be revealed on Jan. 14, 2021. The debates will take place March 8-11, 2021.

Translated by Arielle Aaronson and published in English by House of Anansi Press, Autopsy ofa Boring Wife is a wonderfully fresh and engaging novel of the pitfalls and missteps of an apparently « boring » life that could be any of ours.

Happy New Year 2021 from Éditions XYZ!


How about turning the page on 2020? We hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you happiness, health and success! Stay safe and we are looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Frankfurt Book Fair 2020


XYZ is sadly not going to participate in this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair. Our publishing houses have decided that we need to be cautious with COVID-19 still on the loose. How about you? What are you planning to do?

We missed meeting you in the Spring and with no Frankfurt Book Fair this year we would love to see you digitally. We use Zoom for video calls, but we could try other means too!

I invite you to book an appointment in October with me on my Calendly. I am committed to freeze my mornings for meetings during the first 3 weeks of October, in order to meet with all of you! If we are in the same time zone (or close enough) don’t hesitate to suggest meetings in the afternoon (eastern time).

Hoping to chat with you soon to tell you all about our new and intriguing titles!
