Description

Invited to a quiet Swiss château by the enigmatic Tatiana Beaujeu Lehmann, Anne begins to slowly write a novel in a language that is not hers, a language that makes meaning foreign and keeps her alert to the world and its fiery horizon. Will the strange intoxication that takes hold of her and her characters – sculptor Charles; his sister Kim, about to leave for the Arctic; Kim’s love, June, owner of a video store; and Laure Ravin, a lawyer obsessed with the Patriot Act – allow her to break through the darkness of the world

Fences in Breathing, first published and critically lauded in French as La capture du sombre, is a disquieting, dexterous, and defiant missive, another triumph by one of North America’s foremost practitioners of innovative writing.
