Solemn Mass for a Full Moon in Summer

Solemn Mass for a Full Moon in Summer

By Michel Tremblay
Translated by Martin Bowman
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854594952, 96 pages, April 2001


On six moonlit Montreal balconies on a sultry summer’s evening, eleven people tell their stories of love. Each pieces together the landscape of an affair, tracing the gradations between intoxicating highs and heartbreaking lows. Inspired by the discovery of a lost mass by Berlioz, A Full Moon in Summer dispenses with religious themes but uses the ritual of a traditional mass to lay bare the characters’ overpowering emotions.
