Collected Later Novels
Written by Anne Hébert
Publication Date January 01, 2003
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.
Anne Hébert was born on August 1, 1916 in Sainte-Catherine-de-Fossambault, a small village 40 kilometres from Quebec City. When she died in January 2000, she was one of Canada's most highly acclaimed and successful literary stars.
