About the Author
Yves Beauchemin, born in 1941 in Noranda, is a giant figure in modern Quebec. His second novel, The Alley Cat, (now in NCL) went on to become what The Canadian Encyclopedia calls “the all-time bestselling novel in Quebec literature.” The French edition of this book, Charles le Téméraire, has also been a huge success . . . and the quartet continues.
