Thirty AcresBook - 1989
One of the most important books to come out of Quebec,Thirty Acres traces the course of one man's life as he enters into the age-old rhythms of the land and of the seasons. At the same time, it is a novel on a grand social scale, spanning and documenting the tumultuous half-century in which a new, industrial urban society crowded out Quebec's traditional rural one. Winner of the Governor General's Award and numerous other national and international literary prizes,Thirty Acresis a universal story of birth and death, renewal and reversal, ascent and decline, and a masterpiece of irony and realism.
