(From the publisher):
The two novellas contained in this collection represent some of Marie-Clarie Blais's finest and most lyrical prose. The Day is Dark invites us into a dreamlike world of shadowy landscapes peopled with complex, obsessive characters. It is a story about death as it comes to a family of young people and illuminates the oppositions of darkness to daylight, life to death, love to betrayal and hope to despair.
The Three Travellers is a beautiful and lyrical story about the profound relationship of life and art. It is a classic love triangle—the reader enters the inner world of of a playwright and his sculptress wife who are both enchanted by a brilliant pianist.
