An Appropriate Place: A Novel
"In this final volume of The False Pretenses trilogy, Gabrielle Perron quits her job as minister of cultural affairs and retreats to the suburbs of Montreal, where she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and reconstruction. Gabrielle's search leads through the corridors of power in Ottawa and Quebec City, as well as on a moving trip through strife-torn Ethiopia, and finally to strange and deadly intersections with characters from Affairs of Art and Following the Summer, including the impressive but erratic poet and rabble-rouser Clothaire Lemelin. Though packed with action and incident, this novel is as much a commentary on the triumphs and self-deception of the political generation that refashioned Quebec as it is a dramatic story of one woman looking for her place within a disappointing world."
