A classic of Quebec literature.

In the spring of 1989, three young people, born thousands of miles apart, set out to discover what—or who—might anchor them in their lives. Their stories weave in and out of other wondrous tales—stories about such things as fearsome female pirates, urban archaeologists, unexpected floods, fish of all kinds, a mysterious book without a cover and a dysfunctional compass whose needle obstinately points to the remote Aleutian village of Nikolski.
