Cabbagetown Author publishes 9th Book

Contributed by Pstreet News

Franco-Ontarian author Paul-François Sylvestre, from The Distillery District, has just published his 9th novel (and 45th book). L’envers de la médaille (The reverse of the medal) is the story of two pedophiles priests in French Ontario during the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

 
The action is mainly set in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

 
Though Sylvestre has chosen a plot involving fictional characters, all the names of the bishops and archbishops have not been altered. The victims – mainly young boy scouts – are also drawn from fiction.

 
L’envers de la médaille remains an historical novel because the backdrop settings of all 25 chapters are well-documented, namely the Franco-Ontarian community organizations. There are many references to real court cases involving pedophile priests or brothers in Canada.

 
The novel is published by Éditions du Gref (at York University’s Glendon College). It will be launched on February 26th at the Salon du livre de l’Outaouais (Gatineau). Info: abaudot@glendon.yorju.ca
