Searching for Sam has arrived!

Searching for Sam is the second book by popular Québécois novelist Sophie Bienvenu that Talon has published! (Around Her, pictured above, is the first.)

Searching for Sam tells the story of Mathieu, who lives on the street. His main companion is his pitbull, Sam – the one connection he retains in the world, helping him to stay alive. So when Sam disappears out of the blue, Mathieu is left adrift. As he frantically searches for her, his past begins to re-emerge in flashbacks, revealing the tragedies of his life.

Translated by Rhonda Mullins, Searching for Sam is a monologue written from Mathieu’s perspective, one that draws the reader into his interior world. As writer and journalist Marie Hélène Poitras writes in her insightful foreword, it is a book about survivors that “offers readers … a powerful human experience.”
