FAIRE LES SUCRES by FANNY BRITT has won the Prix du Gouverneur général 2021 dans la catégorie Romans et nouvelles.
"A fair and non-indulgent portrait of Western society and the gap between classes and ethnic origins, this brilliantly written novel follows the tradition of the great North American novels and asks an essential question: no matter how privileged we may be, can we live without relying on others? In this well-crafted and lucid fresco, complex characters undergo crises that are associated to the paradoxes that inhabit them". Peer Review Committee: Sophie Bienvenu, Aristote Kavungu and Andrée A. Michaud
