The Hockey Sweater, the title story in this 20-story collection, has become an enduring classic: a Quebec boy and Habs fan is shipped a Toronto Maple Leafs sweater by mistake. It encapsulates everything you need to understand French and English Canada, told with humour and love. This edition features a new introduction.

Roch Carrier was born in the small town of Sainte-Justine, Quebec, in 1937. He received a B.A. from the Université Saint-Louis in Edmunston, New Brunswick, a master’s degree from the University of Montreal, and a doctorate at the Sorbonne in Paris. His first published book, La Guerre, Yes Sir! was released in 1968 and has since been adapted by the author for theater, touring with the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Russian-occupied Czechoslovakia, and Canada. He was secretary general of the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in Montreal, the director of the Canada Council from 1994 to 1997, and appointed National Librarian in October 1999.

Carrier has travelled across Canada and the world giving lectures, readings, writing workshops, and always promoting Canadian writers. He lives in Montreal.

Sheila Fischman is the preeminent translator of French fiction in Canada. She has won the Governor General’s Literary Award as well as the Félix Antoine-Savard Prize.
