It is the glorious second day of May, 1942. Seven women in this raucous Francophone working-class Montreal neighbourhood are pregnant - only one of them, "the fat woman," is bearing a child of true love and affection. In this first of six novels that became his Chronicles of the Plateau Mont Royal, Tremblay provides a "divine comedy" of triumphs and tragedies.
