Crossing the City: Book 2 of The Desrosiers Diaspora


By Michel Tremblay; Translated by Sheila Fischman

In the second novel in Tremblay's Crossing series, we follow Maria, the mother of Rheauna, as she leaves Providence, New England, pregnant and without a husband, to join her brother and two sisters in Montreal.

Crossing the City takes place a year before and a year after that of the previous novel, Crossing the Continent.

One of the most produced and prominent playwrights in Canadian theatre history, Michel Tremblay is considered the father of the Quebec language. His dramatic, literary, and autobiographical works have long enjoyed international popularity. Sheila Fischman is a Governor General's Award-winning translator.
