  • Short Description
Martine Delvaux?s aching take on her own origin story is a book about words lost in a lifetime of storms, about truth and fiction, a book about how something as seemingly commonplace as parentage can undermine everything?confidence, relationships, the body, memory.
White Out is at first glance a woman?s invention, over and over again, of the man who chose not to be her father, leaving his young lover pregnant. Yet, arcing from late-1960s Quebec to the present, it is also the story of a young woman, and a generation of young women, caught between Catholicism and free love. Martine Delvaux?s aching take on her own origin story is a book about words lost in a lifetime of storms, about truth and fiction, a book about how something as seemingly commonplace as parentage can undermine everything?confidence, relationships, the body, memory. Through narrative we try to patch our unknowns but narrative, at once foreign and familiar, fails us.

Novelist Martine Delvaux was born in Quebec City and brought up in a francophone village in Ontario. She is the author of over a dozen novels and non-fiction essays and is very popular in French-speaking media as a speaker and pundit. Her first book in English, Bitter Rose was published by LLP to critical acclaim in 2015. This was followed by The Last Bullet is For You (LLP, 2016), Nan Goldin The Warrior Medusa (LLP, 2017), and White Out (LLP, 2018). Delvaux studied in the United States, taught in England, and now lives in Montreal, where she teaches women?s studies at Université du Québec à Montréal.
