StoriesPaperback - 1997
A unique and powerful portrait of referendum and post-referendum Montreal. Published in Quebec in 1996, Aurora Montrealis shot to the top of the best-seller lists and confirmed Monique Proulx 's position as one of the top Quebec fiction writers of her generation.
In all of these stories -- about disintegrating relationships, yearning housewives, survivors of political and literary wars, people at the very centre of the Quebec dream and those excluded by it -- the true hero is the city of Montreal itself, a rapidly changing, indefinable city, which not only provides the backdrop of its inhabitant's lives, but is the essential force with which they must deal.
