The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman

ONEWorld Publications | February 1, 2017 | 128 pages

Bilodo lives a solitary daily life, routinely completing his postal rounds every day and returning to his empty Montreal apartment. But he has found a way to break the cycle -- Bilodo has taken to stealing people's mail, steaming open the envelopes, and reading the letters inside. And so it is he comes across S�gol�ne's letters. She is corresponding with Gaston, a master poet, and their letters are each composed of only three lines. They are writing each other haikus. The simplicity and elegance of their poems move Bilado and he begins to fall in love with her. But one day, out on his round, he witnesses a terrible and tragic accident. Just as Gaston is walking up to the post-box to mail his next haiku to S�gol�ne, he is hit by a car and dies on the side of the road. And so Bilodo makes an extraordinary decision -- he will impersonate Gaston and continue to write to S�gol�ne under this guise. But how long can the deception continue for? DenisTh�riault weaves a passionate and elegant tale, comic and tragic with a love story at its heart.
