Join us this evening at 7pm for the launch of Mark Lavorato's new novel, Serafim & Claire, a story of art and audacity set in Montreal in the 20's, published by House of Anansi Press.
Serafim and Claire is the beautiful, moving, and compulsively readable story of two dreamers whose worlds become forever connected ... Serafim and Claire is the unforgettable story of two idealistic yet flawed dreamers being drawn together, and of the vibrant city and times in which they live. In lush and beautiful prose, Mark Lavorato brings an entire world vividly to life.
Praise for Serafim and Claire: Serafim and Claire is a book of quiet, lush beauty. I savoured every line. The painterly prose reminded me of the best of Michael Ondaatje, and the book will earn a place in the pantheon of great Montreal novels. (Marcello Di Cintio, author of Walls: Travels Along the Barricades)
