Pierre Turgeon’s response is simple: we write to participate in the “communion of saints of a library” and because we want to have “a place, after our death, amongst the dead.” Pierre Turgeon writes very well, unpretentiously, with a very endearing mocking side. An elegant book, dandy, civilized. » Jean Basile, Le Devoir.

Pierre Turgeon writes an epic story on the surface of the void, the poet walks behind the engineer. ” Jean Larose, Spirale.
