Swallowed

Réjean Ducharme, translated by Madeleine Stratford
Swallowed

In 1966, Réjean Ducharme, then a 24-year-old unknown, published L’Avalée des avalés, the debut novel that would go on to serve as a zeitgeist for several generations of French-Canadian readers. Over the last fifty years, it has become a cornerstone for a culture, taught in high schools and universities as the foundation of modern Québécois literature. Astoundingly, an English-language edition of the book hasn’t been in print since 1968, and has never before been available in Canada. Gripping and hallucinatory, Swallowed is every bit as shocking and relevant today as it was upon first publication in 1966.
