Publisher Description

One morning, the poet Hazel Brown wakes up in a Vancouver hotel room to find that she’s written the complete works of Charles Baudelaire. Surprising as this may be, it’s no more surprising to Brown than the strange journey she’s taken to become the writer that she is. Animated by the spirit of the poète maudit, she shuttles between London, Vancouver, Paris, and the French countryside, moving fluidly between the 1980s, the 1850s and the present, from rented room to rented room, all the while considering such Baudelairean obsessions as modernity, poverty, perfume, painting and the perfect jacket…


Part magical realism, part feminist ars poetica, part history of fashion, part bibliophilic anthem, The Baudelaire Fractal is the long-awaited debut novel by the inimitable Lisa Robertson.
