Full of the mordant wit and unflinching observations we've come to admire in Bissonette's earlier, award-winning novels and stories, An Appropriate Place is as much a commentary on the triumphs and self-deception of the political generation that refashioned Quebec as it is a dramatic story of one woman looking for her place within a disappointing world. In this final volume of The False Pretenses trilogy, Gabrielle Perron quits her job as minister of cultural affairs in a sovereign government and retreats to the suburbs of Montreal, where she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and reconstruction. Gabrielle's search leads us through the corridors of power in Ottawa and Quebec City as well as through strife-torn Ethiopia, and ultimately to strange and deadly intersections with characters from Affairs of Art and Following the Summer.
