Vadnais, Christiane

Entry updated 19 July 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1986-    ) Canadian radio programmer and author whose Faunes (coll of linked stories 2018; trans Pablo Strauss as Fauna 2020), set after the virtual elimination of Homo sapiens due to devastating Climate Change, traces through an array of linked narratives set in the sub-Arctic town of Shivering Heights the lives of survivors in the transformed world they cannot easily inherit. Mutations (see Mutants) haunt them, metamorphoses out of the toolkit of Fantastika, recurrences of Pandemic. They seem to be gazed upon by the world, by other animals and by themselves as though they were in a Zoo. [JC]
