Christian Guay-Poliquin was born back when the environmental stakes were limited to a hole in the ozone and acid rain. Though his books refer to the codes of post-apocalyptic fiction, their ambition is not to tell another end-of-the-world story. Instead, they bring us face to face with the strengths and fragile quality of human relations. His trilogy of novels Running on Fumes (2013), The Weight of Snow (2016, winner of the Governor General’s Award Literary Award for French-Language Fiction), and Falling Shadows have been published in several languages around the world.
