Gail Scott
Acclaimed Montréal novelist Gail Scott's fourth novel, The Obituary, has been described as a signal-to-noise song for contemporaneous street-level experience, and was finalist for the 2011 Montréal Book of the Year (Grand prix du livre de Montréal). Scott's other ground-breaking novels include My Paris (Dalkey Archive), called a "œtour de force of technique, style, and soul" in a starred review from Booklist. Prose works also include essays, stories, manifestos, and collaborations with Nicole Brossard et al (La théorie, un dimanche), and with Robert Glí¼ck, Camille Roy, and Mary Burger (Biting the Error, shortlisted for a Lambda award, 2005). Scott's translation of Michael Delisle's Le Déasarroi du matelot was a finalist for the prestigious Canadian Governor General's award in translation. She lives, mostly, in Montréal and teaches Creative Writing at Université de Montréal.
