Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1947. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First English Language Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. This is a copy of the first English language publication of three time Governor General award winner Gabrielle Roy's The Tin Flute/Bonheur d'Occasion, which is credited with reflecting a life of such overwhelming and endless poverty in the face of huge families and low wages that it provided an impetus for change in Quebec. Gabrielle Roy was actually from St-Boniface, the French quarter of Winnipeg, and went to live in Europe from there, but was forced to return to Canada in 1939 with the outbreak of World War II and it was then that she went to Montreal and devoted her time to writing and sketching. Nevertheless the picture she paints clearly struck a chord with readers in both languages and around the world. Without a dust jacket, this copy has darkened a great deal and the cover is somewhat faded and soiled. Spine is cocked. There is a little writing in pencil but for the most part the interior is clean. The spine is worn and faded but remains undamaged. Bookseller Inventory # 000298

Original French title, ?Bonheur d?Occasion? is affixed on flap of dust jacket., Gabrielle Roy (1909 ? 1983) was a French Canadian author from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her first novel, Bonheur d'occasion (1945), gave a starkly realistic portrait of the lives of people in Saint-Henri, a working-class neighbourhood of Montreal. The novel caused many Quebeckers to take a hard look at themselves, and is regarded as the novel that helped lay the foundation for Quebec's Quiet Revolution of the 1960s. The original French version won her the prestigious Prix Femina in 1947. Published in English as The Tin Flute, the book won the 1947 Governor General's Award for fiction as well as the Royal Society of Canada's Lorne Pierce Medal. Distributed in the United States, where it sold more than three-quarters of a million copies, the Literary Guild of America made The Tin Flute a feature book of the month in 1947.
