Contributes to the on-going effort by historians and archivists to record and preserve the record of 9/11 by: collecting first-hand accounts of the 9/11 attacks and the aftermath (especially voices currently under-represented on the web), collecting and archiving emails and digital images growing out of these events, organizing and annotating the most important web-based resources on the subject, and developing materials to contextualize and teach about the events.

"Jack Waterman owns a bookstore in Ouebec City. He lives there, but works at the university, where he translates the Canadian Dictionary of Biography. He is an inspiration to writers, one of whom, Jimmy, stumbles into his store." "Jimmy has no roots; he knows he wants to be a writer, but he does not know how. He needs to learn and to gain experience. Jack Waterman takes on the role of his mentor. Jimmy goes to Paris, where he walks in the footsteps of Hemingway and Joyce, but he is called to return to Quebec because Jack has taken a turn for the worse." "Jack suffers from "Eisenhower's disease," his name for Alzheimer's, and although it is progressing slowly, he is well aware that at some point soon he is going to lose his faculties completely. It is his intention to take his own life before he becomes a burden to those he loves."--Jacket

Et le mond à l'envers, c'est la vraie vie, c'est le monde selon Poulin"."--Page 4 de la couverture

"From award-winning translator Sheila Fischman comes a new novel by bestselling Quebec author and Canada Reads finalist Jacques Poulin, English Is Not a Magic Language. A follow-up to the author’s critically acclaimed 2006 novel, Translation Is a Love Affair (Archipelago Books), here we meet reader-for-hire Francis, the little brother of novelist Jack Waterman, whom longtime Poulin fans will remember from previous works as the author’s loose alter ego. One call and Francis will arrive at your door in his Mini Cooper, ready to read. He’s partial to works about the Natives, the fur trade, and the immense territory the French once held in North America. Altogether, Francis’s ordinary life in the shadows of his better-known brother could almost be described as happy. But what is he to make of a missed rendezvous with a mysterious woman? And why have the Mounties suddenly started following him in front of the Plains of Abraham, where New France fell to the British?"--Page 4 de la couverture
