Fences in Breathing by Nicole Brossard , Translated by Suzanne De Lotbinière-Harwood

Finalist for QWF Translation Prize in 2009

Fences

Invited to a quiet Swiss château by the enigmatic Tatiana Beaujeu Lehmann, Anne begins to slowly write a novel in a language that is not hers, a language that makes meaning foreign and keeps her alert to the world and its fiery horizon.
Will the strange intoxication that takes hold of her and her characters — sculptor Charles; his sister Kim, about to leave for the far north; and Laure Ravin, a lawyer obsessed with the Patriot Act — allow her to break through the darkness of the world?
