1953: Chronicle of a Birth Foretold
Written by France Daigle
Publication Date October 01, 1997
France Daigle casts a droll eye on what it means to be born a writer in the middle of the twentieth century. 1953 crackles with wit, intelligence, and insight, and the year in question emerges as a turning point not only for the heroine, but for the entire world.
France Daigle is the author of eleven novels, including Real Life, 1953, A Fine Passage, Life’s Little Difficulties, and Just Fine, which won the France Acadie Prize, the Prix Éloize, and the Prix Antonnie-Maillet-Acadie Vie. She lives in Moncton New Brunswick.
