    This book was published by the UK small press, Peirene Press a boutique publishing house with a traditional commitment to first class European literature in high quality translation and whose style is described by the TLS as Two hour books to be devoured in a single sitting literary cinema for those fatigued by film This book represents a slight variation on both of these themes firstly as a translation of a Quebecois novel the author Larry Tremblay lives in Montreal and is the author of some 30 books, although this is only his third novel the translator Sheila Fischman has translated than 150 Quebecois novels into English secondly it is even shorter than the normal and in my case easily read on a 40 minute train journeyThe attached link gives a comprehensive summary of the plot of the novel and its key themes always being interested in new additions to the twins in literature genre particularly when such twins are identical and enjoying the deliberately country free and therefore figurative nature of the examination of civil tribal wars, I felt strangely dissatisfied by the setting of the later d nouement of the earlier action in an acting classes play In particular I started this section hoping that it was a clever and deliberately self referential critique of th...
