Description


For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again is Tremblay's homage to his mother, who nurtured his imagination, his reclusive reading habits and his love for the theatre and the arts, yet who did not live to witness the performance of Les Belles Soeurs--the first successful play written in joual with which Tremblay legitimized the Quebecois vernacular in the arts--and the world-wide acclaim for her son's artistic genius. In a compelling balance of humour and poignancy, Tremblay offers glimpses of himself and his mother at five different stages of their lives together, culminating in his reassurance of his dying mother's concern for him immediately prior to his spectacular success.
