Rhonda Mullins

eBook

"With Il pleuvait des oiseaux, the author has excelled. Brilliant! And what humanity! Jocelyne Saucier is a magician of the soul."—Le Devoir

Tom and Charlie are living out what's left of their lives on their own terms in a remote forest, two pot growers their only connection to the outside world. But then two women arrive—a photographer on the trail of survivors of a decades-ago forest fire and an elderly escapee from a psychiatric institution—and everything changes. Originally published in French, And the Birds Rained Down, the recipient of several prizes, is a haunting meditation on aging and self-determination.

Jocelyne Saucier's novels have received countless prizes, including the Prix des Cinq Continents de la Francophonie.

Rhonda Mullins's translation of Saucier's novel Jeanne's Road was nominated for the Governor General's Award.
