Description - The Play of Language and Spectacle by Ellen R Babby

First Place: The Alcuin Citation for Excellence in Book Design. Gabrielle Roy's undoubted importance in the history of the French-Canadian novel makes her one of the most frequently studied of our authors. In this unique study, Ellen Babby focuses on the spectacle motif throughout Gabrielle Roy's fiction. This wide-ranging survey of texts reveals a whole new facet of Roy's artistry, and sheds a refreshing and critically important light on many of her works often casually passed over by critics, such as La Riviere sans repros, Jardin au bout du monde, La Montagne secrete, and Alexandre Chenevert."
