Two siblings exist in a surreal reality, having grown up in a land of their father's own making, using a language of their own. This comes to a head when, after a traumatic morning, the two are faced with the outside world. The question raised is both profound and seemingly obvious to most people: how would you deal with the outside world if you never knew it existed? This powerful little novel rested atop Quebec's bestseller list for 32 weeks.
