Beschreibung des Verlags

Finalist for the 2021 Governor General's Literary Award for Translation. Sandrine's father is dead, and her mother has vanished into her grief. Alone and suffering from an incurable disease, the eleven-year-old girl finds companionship in her doctor, Tiresias, who morphologically changes sex in unpredictable ways (and seemingly without anyone noticing). A transformational tale about the mysteries of identity and the power dynamics that surround it, The Neptune Room pieces together life's terrible but tender metamorphosis, opening a door onto a universe of beauty, mourning, and renewal. Praise for The Neptune Room "The Neptune Room is a frenetic read, bursting with cultural, political, and philosophical references." —Montreal Review of Books "The beautiful prose elegantly carries the pain while imbuing each word with significance; it's something so rarely found today. Put this in an English Undergrad class, and you'll have students analyzing the work for months, reeling with ideas until the end of the semester." —The White Wall Review
