With Il pleuvait des oiseaux, the author has excelled. Brilliant! And what
humanity! Jocelyne Saucier is a magician of the soul.?Le Devoir Tom and
Charlie are living out what's left of their lives on their own terms in a
remote forest, two pot growers their only connection to the outside world.
But then two women arrive?a photographer on the trail of survivors of a
decades-ago forest fire and an elderly escapee from a psychiatric
institution?and everything changes. Originally published in French, And the
Birds Rained Down, the recipient of several prizes, is a haunting
meditation on aging and self-determination. Jocelyne Saucier's novels have
received countless prizes, including the Prix des Cinq Continents de la
Francophonie. Rhonda Mullins's translation of Saucier's novel Jeanne's Road
was nominated for the Governor General's Award.
