Christian Guay-Poliquin was born just north of the U.S. border in Saint-Armand, Quebec, in 1982. He believes the art of the narrative is grounded in the demands and details of daily life, situated in a world ripe with experience. He is currently developing a doctoral thesis on the hunting narrative and writing his second novel, Le poids de le neige, forthcoming from La Pleuplade in September 2016. Le fil des kilomètres (La Peiplade, 2013), his first novel, was published in both Quebec and France.
