White Pebbles in the Dark Forests

By Jovette Marchessault
Translated by Yvonne M. Klein

The third volume in Marchessault’s autobiographically based trilogy. White Pebbles In the Dark Forests traces a reconciliation between men and women, children and parents, animals and humans, and the past and future as it looks at the connections between the visible and the invisible. Following Like a Child of the Earth and Mother of the Grass, this volume introduces Noria, an aviatrix who, like a shaman, flies across the night sky of North America to deliver the world a message of hope and recovery, and Jeanne, the writer who practices the magic art of healing; the art of literature.
