An elegant, melancholic novella about memory, family and the meaning of home.  

This is the tale of the fractured family life of American divorcée Bonnie McCarthy and her daughter Flor. Uprooted and unmoored, the pair lead an itinerant existence, glamorous yet dependent, with Venice, Canne and Paris as their backdrop. When Flor attempts to flee this untidy life and the oppressive rule of her eccentric mother, she instead succumbs to a gradual decline into insanity.

Green Water, Green Sky was Mavis Gallant’s debut and is a quietly dazzling example of her masterful shifts in narrative perspective and her visceral exploration of displacement and exile.
