Product description


“A gripping novel with poetic insights into human behaviour and a rich sense of place.” (The Chronicle-Herald)

“The novel’s strength flows from Claudel’s fiery voice. Her prose is as lyrical as her sculpture … there is a realistic complexity and ambiguity … to which Bruneau and Claudel do not so much explore as bear witness.” (Atlantic Books Today)

“I once lived in Philadelphia, not far from an outdoor park filled with Rodin sculptures … I walked among [them], touching them, feeling the power. I had the same reaction to These Good Hands, Carol Bruneau’s indelible novel of age, mental disorder and beauty.” (The Sun Times)

“Compassionate and richly textured, These Good Hands, is one of those rare stories of female friendship that makes us grow in unsuspecting ways.” (Eva Stachniak, author of The Winter Palace and Empress of the Night)

“A definite recommended read. I really came to connect, sympathize, and understand these characters. Camille in particular felt extraordinarily real. I connected with her passion and her desire to get more out of life. Bruneau has woven a powerful story that takes place alongside WWII, with characters who spring to life off of the page.” (Worn Pages and Ink)

About the Author

Raddall Atlantic Fiction Prize. Born in Halfiax, Bruneau is a graduate of Dalhousie University (B.A. and M.A.) and the University of Western Ontario (M.A. in Journalism). She has been writer-in-residence at Dalhousie and Acadia universities. Currently, she is an instructor at NSCAD University in Halifax.
