Overview

In this collection of ten short stories, the main characters ? women between the ages of 13 to 88 ? see death appear suddenly in their daily lives: in the pages of a novel written by a former lover, in a farewell letter abandoned on a living room coffee table, in the memory of a first love. Although disturbing in their truth, these stories are written in luminous prose that reconciles us ? almost ? with that ultimate rendezvous, our own Date With Destiny.

Reviews

The author skilfully describes the settings and characters, creating everyday lives filled with music and reverie, as if to better lead her reader to the inevitable. ? Jacques Allard, Le Devoir
