In this poetry collection written by an award-winning author and translated from French by an award-winning translator, the relentless force of water waves rambles the streets of a small village with fear. The streets become empty and the people vanish without a trace. With his intricate and distinctive poetic style, Paul Savoie successfully portrays his creative talent and explores a wide range of human feelings, fears, and perceptions inviting us to the world of mystery, fantasy, and suspense.
