“Losing your head” by Heather O’Neill, “Les pénitences” by Alex Viens, “Le jeu de l’oiseau” by Sylvie Drapeau and “La banalité d’un tir” by Mali Navi are thus part of the 12 titles selected in the novel category, short stories and Quebec narratives.

“The White Shadows” by Dominique Fortier, “Awakening in Kitchike: The bleeding of possibilities” by Louis-Karl Picard-Sioui, “We have all the fall” by Juliana Léveillé-Trudel and “The Girl with a braid” by Françoise de Luca also won a place for itself in this category.

In the category of novels, short stories and stories from outside Quebec, a dozen titles were selected, including “Dear connard” by Virginie Despentes, “Les abeilles grises” by Andreï Kourkov and “Mr. Loverman” by Bernardine Evarist.

Nine titles caught the attention of the selection committees in the Quebec Essay category and six in the Quebec Comic Strip category.
