Here's what you say about us...

Nancy Huston was born in Calgary, Canada, in 1953 and studied in New England and New York. When she was twenty she went to Paris and decided to make it her home. Writing in both French and English, she translates her own work and is the author of numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, as well as plays, children's books and screenplays. Fault Lines, her eleventh novel, won France's prestigious Prix Femina in 2006.

Huston... is a master of emotional shifts and indirection; what looks like meandering in Infrared is a narrative chess game, every move worth watching.
New York Times

Flows with a thematic coherence built up out of many small and tenuously connected episodes. Huston shows her usual mastery of complicated structure, her wide cultural knowledge and her brilliant, assured portraiture.
