The Chronicles of Kitchike : Taking a Hard Fall

In his first collection of stories, The Chronicles of Kitchike: Taking a Hard Fall, Louis-Karl Picard-Sioui takes us on a journey into the heart of a very colourful Indigenous community where traditions, dreams, deprivation and, yes, corruption exist side by side. With image-laden language, he plunges us into the daily life of ordinary men and women facing political, economic, and mythical forces beyond their control. With wry humour and a touch of the fantastic, the author depicts the sometimes tense relationships in Southern Quebec’s communities, allowing a snapshot of our multicultural society to be seen between the lines The Chronicles of Kitchike transports us to a unique universe, to a world that is not only comical but also gentle and replete with legend, home to a panoply of characters we’re not likely to soon forget!
