Gail Scott Gail Scott’s fiction and criticism have appeared in several journals. She is the author of two novels: Main Brides (1993) and Heroine (1987); Spare Parts, a collection of short stories; and Spaces Like Stairs, a collection of essays. Most recently, she translated Lise Tremblay’s Mile End (La danse juive, Lemeac, 1999). She lives in Montréal. Paperback: 144 pages.
The unnamed narrator of Lise Tremblay’s Mile End plays the piano for a living, accompanying aspiring singers and ballet dancers. She could do much better if she tried, but she is confused about what she wants out of life. Quebec author Lise Tremblay successfully puts the reader inside someone else’s skin – the sweaty, bouncing, uncomfortable flesh of the novel’s grossly overweight young woman narrator. Throughout much of the book, the reader keeps turning pages for the pleasure of listening to the narrator’s voice, though little in the way of a plot unfolds.

Mile End is a chilling and masterful look at the interior landscapes of psychosis which mirror so perfectly the emptiness of the exterior surfaces they reflect. Library descriptions.
