              I Hate Hockey (PDF ebook)

              By Barcelo, Francois; Translated by McCambridge, Peter

              In this sardonic roman noir, Antoine Vachon-a loser who has lived in a pitiful bachelor apartment since his wife left him and he lost his job as a car salesman-is persuaded to coach his son's hockey team for one game because the previous coach died mysteriously. Antoine makes it ...through the game, to great comic effect, but things go awry when the team stops at a motel and he shares a room with star player Nguyen. His roommate makes it clear that the previous coach was a pedophile and regularly shared a room with Nguyen or Antoine's own 14-year-old son. Antoine begins to suspect that his son killed the coach and goes to unbelievable ends to hide him from the police. To make matters worse, Nguyen, who turns out to be a girl, is pregnant, and Antoine's son is her boyfriend. Antoine and his ex-wife want to help the two kids and their future baby, but it is too late.

              Emile Claudel is no ordinary child. Only months after he was born, following the liberation of France in 1945, he can already speak several languages. This deftly written coming-of-age novel follows Emile on his journey toward adulthood, as the country he was born into passes fro...m austere conservatism to 1960s counterculture.

              In the spring of 1651, a 15-year-old Parisian, Pierre-Esprit Radisson, lands in Trois-Rivieres on the St. Lawrence River. Within weeks, the course of his life changes dramatically when Iroquois braves capture him. Canoeing across rivers and lakes and portaging over mountains, Rad...isson's captors take him to distant lands where they first torture him, then adopt him as a brother. In this first tome of the adventures of North America's most famous coureur des bois-an independent entrepreneurial woodsman-Radisson recounts his journey throughout North America and his adoption by the Iroquois. This book, which explores a continent's history in an era of bravery and heroism, is the stuff of legend.
