Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Anthony Burgess in Montreal
I found this in a newsagent on Mont-Royal Avenue. You can see here the French translations of Earthly Powers and Beard's Roman Women by Anthony Burgess. Two great novels by my favourite writer. In a trivial newsagent with lots of magazines, a whole lot of crime books and bestsellers, there were these two great, these two amazing novels. I have even been unable to find Beard's Roman Women in original English so far. A book that contributed to the development of my love for Italy. Anyway, I find it reassuring to see these books in such an unlikely place. I love my city a bit more.
