Summary (From the publisher):

TÍte Blanche is the brilliant second novel that confirmed the talent of Marie-Claire Blais, a talent which burst upon Quebec's, and the world's, literary landscape with stunning impact when Mad Shadows (/i>La belle bÍte) was published in the late fifties. Heralding the full-blown genius of works such asA Season in the Life of Emmanuel and David Sterne, TÍte Blanche tells a delicate story of the turbulent emotions of youth, rendered with assurance, artistic clarity and a lyric, painful realism.

Different in form from her other works, TÍte Blanche plays a muted variation on the themes of abandonment, sorrow, and human despair which pervade the novels of Marie-Claire Blais. Its power, like the power of all her writing, lies in her ability to reproduce the intangible contours of her characters' minds and souls and the agonizing effects of evil on - and in - the human heart.
