Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

One of the most important books to come out of Quebec, "Thirty Acres traces the course of one man's life as he enters into the age-old rhythms of the land and of the seasons. At the same time, it is a novel on a grand social scale, spanning and documenting the tumultuous half-century in which a new, industrial urban society crowded out Quebec's traditional rural one.
Winner of the Governor General's Award and numerous other national and international literary prizes, "Thirty Acres is a universal story of birth and death, renewal and reversal, ascent and decline, and a masterpiece of irony and realism.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was on the required reading list for a university course I took on Canadian history here in the States. I absolutly fell in love with this book! Its an amazing story of history and family and can really represent Quebec life during the first quarter or so of the 20th century. I am doing a report on this for my French class and hope to someday be proficent enough in French to be able to read it in its original language.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Perspectives on sweeping social change in rural Quebec and insights into early 20th-century farm life in Quebec and French-Canadian points of view make this book an excellent document for historical inquiry. I personally found this book most rewarding, however, for its views on the relations between parents and children. The journey of the book's central character from his role as family builder and provider toward a position of increasing irrelevance is particularly poignant.
