Product description


"This novel shows us what the future of Quebec writing will look like."

"Document 1 is a caustic cauldron that François Blais is hurling right in the face of literary institutions. At the risk of slipping into cliché, I'd say that Blais is the love-child of Jack Kerouac, Réjean Ducharme, David Lodge, and a kilo of marijuana. Funnier than any comedian and incredibly well written. What more could one ask?" --From Babelio

This book oozes a delicious irony. Tess and Jude are total losers, but of such a kind that we love watching them live and doing all their stupid little things. The discrepancy between the language and the characters' lives only adds to the enjoyment. An excellent novel, well written, well put together, and easily devourable."

About the Author

François Blais is one of the most exciting contemporary voices of Quebec literature. Considered an underground superhero of French writing, he is the author of 9 novels and a collection of short stories. Document 1, which was released in French in 2013 to great critical acclaim, is his first novel to be translated into English.
