This attractive trade paperback collection of Anne Hebert's later novels includes some of the most accomplished and best loved fiction of her more than sixty-year career, and features an introduction by her dear friend and fellow acclaimed ex-pat writer, Mavis Gallant.

This volume contains the beautiful and tragic Burden of Dreams, winner of the Governor General's Award for French fiction; Aurelien, Clara, Mademoiselle, and the English Lieutenant, a shimmering fable that captivates and dazzles with its simple beauty; Am I disturbing you?, the raw and chaotic tale of a distraught young woman, nominated for the Giller Prize; and A Suit of Light, Hebert's final novel about the realization of one family's dangerous dreams.
