TONIGHT! Mireille Silcoff launches Chez L'Arabe at The Emerald 8pm

House of Anansi Press and Librairie Drawn & Quarterly present the launch of Montreal writer Mireille Silcoff's new book, Chez L'Arabe. Join us at The Emerald (5295 ave. du Parc) TONIGHT, Tuesday, September 9th at 8 p.m. for food, drinks, readings, and surprise musical guests!

Chez L'Arabe is a dazzling debut collection from award-winning journalist and New York Times Magazine contributor Mireille Silcoff. Inspired by the real life medical struggles of the author, this stunning debut collection opens with a gripping portrait of chronic illness in a series of linked stories about a woman in her mid-thirties, who is trapped in her elegantly accoutered Montreal townhouse — and in her own mind and body. As she struggles with her health, amongst an increasingly indifferent husband and volatile mother, she encounters unimaginable depths of loneliness and realizes that, even after she recovers, her life will never be the same.

Mireille Silcoff is the founding editor of Guilt & Pleasure Quarterly, a magazine of new Jewish writing and ideas, and is the author of three books about drug and youth culture. She is a lead columnist with Canada's National Post and a frequent contributor to the New York Times Magazine and other publications. She lives in Montreal.
