A human wolf stalks human prey in this spellbinding morose masterpiece — a charming wolf whose victims are the willing victims of psychic cannibalism, hatred, perversity and predatory love, a wolf who moves outside the bounds of human love and conventional morality. Marie-Claire Blais, whose genius is at one with Beckett, Genet, Bermanos and Laclos, has produced a procession of acclaimed novels since her debut with Mad Shadows in 1959, and The Wolf, her exploration of the world of homosexuality, is one of her most astonishing books. Blais has been, and still is, a dominating force in Canadian and international fiction. She has been translated into twenty-one languages and among her many awards are the Prix France-Canada, the Prix Médicis and the Governor General’s Award.
