From the Publisher

Germaine Lauzon has won a million trading stamps from a department store. Her head swimming with dreams of refurbishing and redecorating her working-class home from top to bottom with catalogue selections ranging from new kitchen appliances to "real Chinese paintings on velvet," she invites fourteen of her friends and relatives in the neighbourhood over to help her paste the stamps into booklets. Raucous, reckless and rude, the women shamelesslyshare their most secret hopes and fears, complain stridently about their friends and relatives, fantasize wistfully about escaping the misogynist drudgery of their lives and surreptitiously tuck most of the stamps into their purses and clothing, self-righteously appropriating what they consider to be Germaine''s "illegitimate" good fortune. While earlier attempts had been made to stage the realities of Quebecois life using colloquial language and a realistbackdrop of working-class Montreal, these populist hits were considered rustic and anomalous, while "real" (Parisian) French continued to dominate theatre and "high culture" until the end of the 1950s. As Quebec searched for a new socio-political identity and a language that could articulate its rapidly emerging post-colonial reality throughout the "quiet revolution," Michel Tremblay struggled to find an authentic Quebecois voice. Writtenin 1965, it took three years for him get a first production of Les Belles Soeurs in 1968. Premiering at the Theâtre du Rideau-Vert in the same year that Rene Levesque founded the nationalist Parti Quebecois, this first of what was to become more than a dozen plays in Tremblay''s Cycle of Les Belles Soeurs became an overnight success. In one fell stroke, Joual, the distinctive Quebec vernacular that had evolved over centuries since the end of Frenchcolonial rule had been legitimized, and Michel Tremblay, much like Chaucer in English and Dante in Italian, had become "the father of the Quebecois language."

Format: Trade paperback

Seller Comments:

0889223025. Trade Paperback. There are notes and some underlining through the book, otherwise it is in great condition. " Les Belles Soeurs is based on a simple premise: Germaine Lauzon, a poor Québécoise woman, wins a million trading stamps in a lottery. To redeem them Germaine must glue them into the provided booklets, so she keeps her daughter home and invites her friends and relatives to join her in a "stamp party." The vitriol begins within seconds: the women bicker, steal the stamps, and recite their deprivations in a wild cacophony that is both hysterically funny and pitiably bleak. "; Revised; 0.4 x 8.3 x 5.5 Inches; 111 pages.
