              Killing Velazquez

              Killing Velazquez (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Girard, Philippe; Translated by Cochrane, KerryAnn

              On hearing a radio report of an accused priest Philippe is thrown back to a difficult time in his youth. He is faced with his parents' impending divorce, moves to a new city, goes to a new school, and needs to make new friends. To help him adapt to his new surroundings his mother... urges him to join the Snow Geese, a youth group led by a nonconformist priest who challenges Philippe to rethink his values. But as Philippe becomes more acquainted with the group and its charismatic leader, masks begin to slip, and he finds himself plunged into the centre of an unexpected drama. With his life turned upside-down, he seeks comfort in reading, and manages to find his bearings again when he discovers the old-fashioned adventure series of Jack Bowmore. Killing Velazquez is an autobiographical tale that gives us a glimpse into the complexities of manipulation and reminds us that sometimes an old book can actually save a life.

              By Philippe, Girard; Illustrated by Girard, Associate Professor of Caribbean History Philippe R, Ph.D. (McNeese State University); Translated by Cochrane, KerryAnn

              Behold: Obituary Man! A nondescript man who gains indescribable energy from reciting the eulogy at the funerals of strangers. He has never felt so alive!Maurice Petit is the unremarkable type, unaware of his own loneliness until, one morning, on his way to work he feels the crowd...s in the street press on him. He chokes on the weight of his routine. At work he consults his horoscope, which says that some great threat is close at hand. This warning seems the harbinger of some great end, the death he assumes to be imminent. Next to the horoscopes he finds the Obituary section and the name of a classmate from his elementary school. Maurice Petit has reached that lackluster age when peers die of heart attacks, and his own heart races. As he flees the office he tells the secretary, I have an appointment with a dead man. At the funeral something compels Maurice Petit to stand tall and speak. For a moment he is Obituary Man and has a voice for the dead. But will his newfound power rejuvenate him or get him mixed up with the wrong crowd?
