Launch of the book Le Renard Vulve / Satan Narval
Wednesday, July 12 from 5 PM to 7 PM at the bar Le Cheval blanc
809 Ontario est, Montreal
The artist-poet Cynthia Girard-Renard is delighted to announce the launch of her new book titled Le Renard Vulve. Written under the pseudonym Satan Narval, Cynthia Girard-Renard invites you to a feast in which animals are key actors in an erotico-poetic novel that takes place on Mont-Royal.
In this story based on mourning many loses, the narrator and her dog go off in search of the loved one on the Mountain, the birthplace of the plot. On her way, she meets a lesbian BDSM skunk couple, a stripper bat, a pileated woodpecker, a racoon barmaid and many other characters.
Through a series of interspecies sexual adventures and friendships, the narrator, like Alice in Wake-Land, wants you to come along on this delirious trip, reminiscent of a Journey to the End of the Mountain, from which you will not return unscathed. This story will forever change your view of Mont-Royal…
