From the late 1930s until 1983 Gabrielle Roy published numerous novels and collections of short stories through which she developed and exhibited a literary vision that was not only distinctly Quebecois and Canadian but also international in scope. This study analyzes the disparate themes, images, and preoccupations in Roy's fictional works that constitute the foundaton for this unique perception of life. The first of its kind in English, this analysis of Roy's writings promises to be the definitive study of one of French-speaking Canada's most prominent authors.

Review:
...a painstakingly researched and carefully documented book that will serve as a useful resource for specialists (or aspiring scholars) who focus on francophone literature....This major work contributes significantly to the understanding of Gabrielle Roy's fictional world. --Quebec Studies

...With remarkable sureness of interpretation, Lewis analyzes, traces and evaluates the numerous influences in Roy's literary genius...An excellent acqusition for undergranduates, graduate students, and readers interested in Canadian literature. --Choice (magazine)

...probably the most comprehensive analysis to date, in either French or English, of this outstanding author's work... (Lewis) has indeed made a considerable contribution to Canadian literature. --International French Fiction
