Her University Course Which university course which both real and symbolic The journey is also a coming of age from a sheltered existence in a small isolated village to a life of responsibility in a big city with added knowledge of life along the way and increased exposure to bigger and bigger places as she goes It also crosses a large expanse of our countryThe novel is also apparently backstory to another Tremblay novel Chronicles of the Plateau Mont Royal a book I shall have to seek out now and read Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended. Lle Inspiré par l’affection u’il porte à la personne et au personnage de sa mère Michel Tremblay renoue avec la veine centrale ui alimente le cœur de son œuvre Voilà un roman d’une immense tendresse ui nous fait remonter aux origines mêmes de son projet littéraire bien avant ue Nana ne devienne l’universelle Grosse femme d’à côté.
