Kaie Kellough's debut novel was a finalist for the First Novel Award.

Kaie Kellough

Accordéon is an experimental novel, a piercing deconstruction of Québécois culture, an ode to Montréal — a city where everything happens at once and all realities exist simultaneously. Against a satirical Ministry of Culture set on quotas, preservation and containment according to its own cultural code, Kaie Kellough weaves voices and images from the margins to probe collective fantasies of Québec old and new.
