A mocking and tender look at Quebec in the time of Maurice Duplessis, The Penniless Redeemer is Ferron’s most ambitious novel, a huge canvas after the manner of Hieronymus Bosch, where devils and angels mingle with politicians, prelates, painters and poets, where Borduas finds himself in purgatory with Cyrano de Bergerac, where Saint Dennys-Garneau goes to hell in search of a mysterious Eurydice, where young Frank Scot (sic) gets a social disease and turns Quebecois. This edition also includes a translator’s Afterword and extensive notes on characters and events.
