La Guerre, Yes Sir!

La Guerre, Yes Sir!

Written by: Carrier, Roch

Vital, funny, moving and assured, La Guerre, Yes Sir! is a surrealist fable set in rural Quebec during WWI and one of the major achievements in Canadian fiction. Canadian Literature greeted its first appearance in these terms: It is the French-Canadian writer Roch Carrier who comes closest to the significance, power and artistry of Faulkner at his best … He might well be able to do for French Canada what Faulkner did for the American South.
