Editorial Reviews

Book Description
"This is a true story. The story of La Sagouine, a scrubwoman, a woman of the sea, who was born with the century, with her feet in the water. Water was her fortune: the daughter of a cod fisherman, a sailor's girl, and later the wife of a fisherman who took oysters and smelts. A cleaning woman also, who ends up on all fours, with her bucket in front and her hands in the water." -Antonine Maillet With well over 10,000 copies sold in French and English editions, La Sagouine is fast becoming a classic of its genre. The single character is that of La Sagouine, the washerwoman, who fills the stage with the voice of poverty, and of pride. Straight from the heart of Acadian New Brunswick, she is the embodiment of her world, and yet touches the hearts and souls of readers and audiences from all walks of life.
