Our first English release for 2017 is the translation of Michel Hellman’s Nunavik – a sequel of sorts to his hit graphic novel Mile End.
Part autobiography and part documentary, Nunavik is an honest and often funny account of Hellman’s trek through Northern Quebec – where he meets members of the First Nations, various activists and a few shady characters along the way. Throughout the book, the author acknowledges (and challenges) his own prejudices while questioning the way the North forges our identity – both as individuals and as a nation.
“Do you know what constitutes a typical Inuit family? A man, a woman, two children… and an anthropologist!” Follow the Montreal author on a trip from Kuujuuaq to Puvirnituq, as he discovers he’s the punchline to that local joke.
Nunavik is available now in bookstores across Canada and the US or via our online store.
