Lucky Lady & Le Chien
Jay returns to his northern Ontario hometown, seeking reconciliation with a father, a family, and a life he left seven years ago. The world he returns to is one of anger and violence, a world raw with hurt, and love. Winner of the 1988 Governor General's Literary Award, Jean Marc Dalpé's Le Chien is a modern tragedy set in the desolation and beauty of the North about the fine line between love and hate, and the impossibility of burying the past. Despite their dreams of wealth, fame, and success, Bernie and his friends are going nowhere fast. When a horse-racing scheme presents itself, the group decides to gamble their meagre savings, intertwining their lives with the fortunes of a horse. Lucky Lady is an exhilarating comedy, published here for the first time in English.
