New Quebec Writing. . .

Words Without Borders, an online magazine devoted to international literature, has published its April issue which is devoted to writers from Quebec. Elsa Pépin gives an overview of the current literary scene here.  And you can read a very funny short story about a book that literally takes over the world, by writer Nicolas Dickner (author of Nikolski and Apocalypse for Beginners). It's called "The Zacharias Ascaris Affair" and you can read it here.  There is also a short story by Dominique Fortier whose debut novel On the Proper Use of Stars , translated by Sheila Fischmann, was one of my Dewey picks last fall. You can read "Unagi" here
