Summary
In these Nordic woods where forbearers call blowing snow the sweet breath of death, a jeweller uses bird feathers to create works of art, a 54-year old man corresponds with the author of a message in a bottle thrown out to sea, another awaits the onslaught of the storm to open wide his mouth and drink it whole. Nature opens its gills, in this book, where forgiveness is both sought after and offered. A Blanket Against Darkness is filled with talismans from the Earth. Its relic-filled landscapes, where one single movement can set off the migration of an entire colony, are constant reminders that one is never completely alone. Published by Marchand de feuilles in 2015, Trait<U+00da> des peaux was shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Awards and for the Prix des Cinq continents de la Francophonie. This book is published in English, translated from the original "Trait<U+00da> des peaux". En ces for<U+00db>ts nordiques o· les anc<U+00db>tres appellent la poudrerie le souffle de la mort, une joailli<U+00de>re fabrique des bijoux avec des plumes d'oiseaux, un homme de 54 ans correspond avec celui qui a envoy<U+00da> un message dans une bouteille jet<U+00da>e <U+00d3> la mer, un autre attend que l'orage <U+00da>clate pour ouvrir la bouche et le boire en entier. La nature ouvre ses branchies, dans ce livre, o· l'on demande et propose le pardon. A Blanket Against Darkness est rempli de talismans qui viennent de la terre. Ses paysages nous montrent que nous sommes un peuple nordique et que nous ne sommes pas seuls au monde. Nous habitons des lieux peupl<U+00da>s de reliques, o· un seul mouvement brusque peut faire migrer toute une colonie. Paru chez Marchand de feuilles en 2015, Trait<U+00da> des peaux a <U+00da>t<U+00da> finaliste aux Prix litt<U+00da>raires du Gouverneur g<U+00da>n<U+00da>ral, de m<U+00db>me qu'au Prix des Cinq continents de la Francophonie. Ce livre est publi<U+00da> en anglais, une traduction du titre original "Trait<U+00da> des peaux"
