Description

Multiple plot lines interweave with twentieth-century literary allusions as hapless bureaucrat P. attempts to secure delivery of a valuable cultural relic. Patrice Martin's ticklish tip of the hat to the writing of Franz Kafka also evokes the literary techniques of Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, and Paul Auster.

Polymath Patrice Martin is a writer, musician, and politician who is a former clerk in Canada's House of Commons, and currently is a Gatineau city councilor. He confesses his working life in government bureaucracy helped shape this, his first novel.

Chantal Bilodeau is a New York-based playwright and translator originally from Montreal, Quebec.




Auteur

Patrice Martin is a writer and politician who claims to have been bumping into the spirit of Kafka for most of his adult life. His years spent in government, first as a procedural clerk in Canada's House of Commons, then as a municipal councillor, no doubt helped shape his first novel, the deliciously absurd Kafka's Hat. Martin holds a Master's degree in political science from the University of Ottawa. He lives in Gatineau, Quebec, with his wife and daughter.

Chantal Bilodeau is a New York-based playwright and translator originally from Montreal. Her play Sila won first prize in the 2012 Earth Matters on Stage Ecodrama Festival and the 2011 Uprising National Playwriting Competition. She is the recipient of a Jerome Travel and Study Grant and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. Notable among her English translations are Bintou by Koffi Kwahulé and Abraham Lincoln Goes to the Theatre by Larry Tremblay.
