An affecting story of familial tenderness, sacrifice, and survival during the Second World War, The Tin Flute won both the Governor Generals Award and the Prix Fmina of France. The novel was made into a critically acclaimed motion picture in 1983. From the Hardcover edition.

The Tin Flute was a great read about poverty in Canada on the brink of WWII. Unlikeable characters with real motives is always a win for us here in podcast land. #1001books #bookspodcast #applepodcasts #googleplay #soundcloud

Book haul while going through the somewhat 200 donations we got during my summer break. Gabrielle Roy is a wonderful Canadian author, translated Steinbeck and a Sand essay. #bookhaul
