"It's a brave person who dares to shine a light into the corners
of Quebec society, uncovering contradictions and flaws that so many
would rather deny exist. Feminist and activist Alexa Conradi has
never been one to shy away from difficult topics. The Anglophone
Quebecer, who learned to love and live comfortably with the other
solitude, is sure to make some readers angry with this
well-written, thoroughly documented book, mais tant mieux!"
