Vaudeville!, Gaétan Soucy's fascinating tableau, dares us to look into the darkest sides of the human experience . Soucy has described himself as a "rageaholic" and it's true, there are many passages in this book where you can practically see the veins bulging on the author's forehead. He has a way of setting up lots of details and potential byways for the story to follow, and then just terminating them all with one brief, scarifying scene, leaving you with an impression of unquenchable cosmic fury, of God's waste.

Violence and ugliness blend cartoonishly with comedy and music as Gaetan Soucy dares us to look into the darkest sides of human experience.

New York, at the end of the 1920s  . Violence and ugliness blend cartoonishly with comedy and music as Gaetan Soucy dares us to look into the darkest sides of human experience.

MONTREAL-Quebec writer Gaetan Soucy has died of a heart attack at the age of 54. His publisher said in a statement that Soucy died in Montreal on Tuesday. Soucy’s best-known novel was La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes, which was translated into English as The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches. He also wrote three other novels: L’Immaculee Conception (The Immaculate Conception), L’Acquittement (Atonement) and Music-Hall! (Vaudeville!). The Immaculate Conception was shortlisted for the 2006 Giller Prize, which was won that year by Vincent Lam for Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures.

Flag as Inappropriate. His fourth novel, Music-Hall!, was published in 2002, and translated as Vaudeville! by Fischman. His two first, L'Immaculée conception (translated as The Immaculate Conception by Lazer Lederhendler) and L'Acquittement (translated as Atonement by Sheila Fischman) are extraordinary, dark and baroque works.

Vaudeville! Gaétan Soucy. No one in this fascinating tableau is who he or she appears including Xavier himself, who is, as his mother says, too many people and no one.
