From the cover: “In March 1995, Victor-Levy Beaulieu, well-known French-Canadian novelist and man of letters, spent a week in Toronto, visiting renowned author Margaret Atwood. The lengthy conversations they had on that occasion were continued in May 1995, when Margaret Atwood passed a week at Beaulieu’s country home near Trois-Pistoles, Quebec. During those visits, they discussed many topics of mutual interest: the importance of childhood, of myth, and of belonging to territory; the real versus the imaginary world; the native question in Canada; power and the lack of it; the writing life — and, of course, their own works. First broadcast in French on Radio-Canada, the conversations were also published in Quebec by Editions Trois-Pistoles as Deux Sollicitudes (suggested by Hugh MacLennan’s famous novel about Quebec, Two Solitudes). Now translated into English by translators Phyllis Aronoff and Howard Scott (who won a Governor General’s Award for translation in 1997), the book is sure to engage anyone who cares about writing and about the future of Canada and Quebec.”
