FRANCE DAIGLE’S textured prose and incredible fiction Pour sûr won the 2012 Governor General’s Award for French fiction, highlighting once again the power of Chiac as literary language. Daigle has published five other novels, and created three plays for the theatre company Moncton Sable. Her work has received the France-Acadie Prize and the Eloize award. “Extrait de Pour Sûr", in this issue, is drawn from pages 16–23 of Pour Sûr (Les editions du Boreal 2011). Later in 2013, Pour sûr will appear from House of Anansi in English in Robert Majzels’ translation.
