The Appearance Of The Deer
Original title: L’apparition du chevreuil
“★★★★ – Breathtaking!” — Le Devoir
“A striking novel mastered with intelligence and originality.” — L’Actualité
“Élise Turcotte gives a moving novel, shocking by its realism.” — Journal de Québec
After receiving threats on social media, a writer takes shelter in the woods. There, instead of the peace she was longing for, she finds herself haunted by her troubled family past and surrounded by a nature as hostile as the civilization she left. The cabin nearby is supposed to be abandoned, but what if someone was hiding there?
Like a roe in the snow, this panting story provokes a necessary clatter and tells a family drama that has to be revealed once and for all.
