Trois octogénaires épris de liberté vivent selon leur propre loi en forêt profonde dans le nord de l'Ontario. Non loin de là, deux hommes, l'un gardien d'un hôtel fantôme et l'autre planteur de marijuana, veillent sur l'ermitage des vieillards. Leur vie d'hommes libres et solitaires sera perturbée par l'arrivée de deux femmes. D'abord une photographe en quête du dernier survivant des grands feux qui ont ravagé la région au début du XXe siècle. Puis une deuxième visiteuse, très vieille celle-là, Marie-Desneige, un être aérien et lumineux qui détient le secret des amours impossibles. La vie ne sera plus la même à l'ermitage. Il pleuvait des oiseaux est un superbe récit qui nous entraîne au plus profond des forêts canadiennes, où le mot liberté prend tout son sens. L'émotion, brute et vive, jaillit à chaque page.

Finalist for the 2013 Governor General's Literary Award for French-to-English Translation Deep in a Northern Ontario forest live Tom and Charlie, two octogenarians determined to live out the rest of their lives on their own terms: free of all ties and responsibilities, their only connection to civilization two pot farmers who bring them whatever they can't eke out for themselves. But their solitude is disrupted by the arrival of two women. The first is a photographer searching for survivors of a series of catastrophic fires nearly a century earlier; the second is an elderly escapee from a psychiatric institution. The little hideaway in the woods will never be the same. Originally published in French, And the Birds Rained Down, the recipient of several prestigious prizes, including the Prix de Cinq Continents de la Francophonie, is a haunting meditation on aging and self-determination.

For more than three decades, Robert Lepageâe(tm)s dynamic multimedia performance works have been produced on stages worldwide. Celebrated for his bold, visionary aesthetic, Lepage has received several high-profile commissions in recent years, including two Peter Gabriel world tours, Cirque du Soleilâe(tm)s KÃ in Las Vegas, a dramatic staging of Wagnerâe(tm)s Ring Cycle at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and Lorin Maazelâe(tm)s 1984 at Londonâe(tm)s Royal Opera House. Despite Lepageâe(tm)s prolificacy, and his status as one of the pioneers of new media performance, little critical writing about his work has been published, particularly in English. Ludovic Fouquetâe(tm)s The Visual Laboratory of Robert Lepage, translated for the first time into English, thus presents much-needed in-depth analysis of Lepageâe(tm)s strategies and practices. The bookâe(tm)s title references the experimentation sointegral to Lepageâe(tm)s creative process and the ways in which he and his creative arts company, Ex Machina, have always been attuned to the synergistic possibilities that emerge when art encounters science and technology. Whether as a playwright, actor, film director, or stage director, Lepage is forever in search of new mutations of form and expression, and his unexpected narratives often write themselves out of discoveries he makes when staging a piece âe" indeed stagecraft often guides storyin Lepageâe(tm)s creative realm. This full-colour volume will be of keen interest for theatre practitioners of all kinds, from set designers to directors, from academics to fans.

In his latest innovative novel, the award-winning author of River of Stars, Children of Earth and Sky, and Tigana evokes the dazzling Tang Dynasty of 8th-century China in a story of honor and power. Inspired by the glory and power of Tang dynasty China, Guy Gavriel Kay has created a masterpiece. It begins simply. Shen Tai, son of an illustrious general serving the Emperor of Kitai, has spent two years honoring the memory of his late father by burying the bones of the dead from both armies at the site of one of his father's last great battles. In recognition of his labors and his filial piety, an unlikely source has sent him a dangerous gift: 250 Sardian horses. You give a man one of the famed Sardian horses to reward him greatly. You give him four or five to exalt him above his fellows, propel him towards rank, and earn him jealousy, possibly mortal jealousy. Two hundred and fifty is an unthinkable gift, a gift to overwhelm an emperor. Wisely, the gift comes with the stipulation that Tai must claim the horses in person. Otherwise he would probably be dead already...
