Accordéon

By (author): Kaie Kellough

Finalist for the 2017 Amazon.ca First Novel Award

Accordéon is an experimental novel, a piercing deconstruction of Québécois culture, an ode to Montréal–a city where everything happens at once and all realities exist simultaneously. Against a satirical Ministry of Culture set on quotas, preservation and containment according to its own cultural code, Kaie Kellough weaves voices and images from the margins to probe collective fantasies of Québec old and new.

Reviews

Kellough’s vision of the canoe is embodied by Accordéon. It is a remarkable work of experimental fiction that pushes back against those who would forward a singular narrative of this unabashedly contradictory city, celebrating instead the messy multiplicity of Montreal. – Sara Spike, associate of Montreal review of Books
