For Sure

A novel translated from the French Pour sûr by France Daigle

For Sure is the final and most ambitious novel in the series revolving around Terry and Carmen and their Acadian community. Among other things, For Sure is a labyrinth, an exploration of the folly of numbers, a repository, a defense and an illustration of the Chiac language. Writing in dazzling prose — occasionally interrupted by surprising bits of information, biography, and definitions — Daigle perfectly captures the essence of a place and offers us a reflection on minority cultures and their roots in language. It is also the moving story of a family and a surprising, staggeringly original work that represents a corner of our country.
