Jay returns to his northern Ontario hometown, seeking reconciliation with a father, a family, and a life he left seven years ago. The home and the people he returns to are as hollow and empty as the landscape that surrounds them, and Jay must face the demons he’s tried so desperately to escape. Winner of the 1988 Governor General’s Literary Award, Jean Marc Dalpé’s Le Chien is a powerful story about love and hate, and the impossibility of burying the past. Despite their dreams of wealth, fame, and success, Bernie and his friends are going nowhere fast. When a horse-racing scheme presents itself, the group decides to gamble their meagre savings, intertwining their lives with the fortunes of a horse. Lucky Lady is a suspenseful and exhilarating work of drama published for the first time in English.

Three-time recipient of the Governor General’s Literary Award, Jean Marc Dalpé has written several highly acclaimed plays including Le Chien, Ed-dy, Lucky Lady, and Trick or Treat. After having lived for many years in Ontario, he now lives in Montreal with his partner Maureen Labonté and their daughter, Marielle.
