Short-listed for the 1988 Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction, Ottawa-Carleton Book Award and Trillium Book Award

Paris, the City of Light, was once the scene of a brilliant magnesium flare, host to the belle epoque from 1900 to 1914. Tempting poets, painters, writers, and composers from across Europe, the city relied on one man to move among them all-Guillaume Apollinaire. His contemporaries called him brilliant, mad, whimsical. He was the bastard son of an Italian cavalry officer and a Polish woman addicted to gambling, but nevertheless let it be rumoured around Paris that he was the son of the pope.

Mark Frutkin has published two previous volumes of poetry, Acts of Light and The Alchemy of Clouds. The Governor General's Award nominee has also published six novels. His work has appeared in the United States, England, Holland, and India, as well as Canada. He lives in Ottawa, Ontario.

From Our Editors

Mark Frutkin’s book Atmospheres Apollinaire is the fantastic story of Guillaume Apollinaire, one of the most dynamic personalities every to walk the streets of Paris. He was a friend and confidant of Picasso, discoverer of the works of the Marquis de Sade and the author of poetry and pornography alike. He was also a veteran of the First World War, the man who coined the terms cubism and surrealism and a tragic victim of the influenza epidemic of 1918, a man you’ll not soon forget.
