On June 6, 1944, the greatest armada in history stood off Normandy and the largest amphibious invasion ever began as 107,000 men aboard 6,000 ships pressed toward the coast. Among them were 14,500 Canadians, who were to land on a five-mile-long stretch of rocky ledges fronted by a dangerously exposed beach. Drawing on personal diaries as well as military records, Juno Beach: Canada's D-Day Victory, June 6, 1944 dramatically depicts Canada's pivotal contribution to the critical Allied battle of World War II.
"Well done book, narration annoying"
This comic novel, told in epistolary fashion as a sequence of exchanged letters, presents pornographer "Guy LaDouche" retreating to the wilderness with the hope of solitude and concentration to write his next book under a looming deadline. Instead of peace, he finds harassment and distraction from his publisher, his old girlfriend, and an angry father convinced that LaDouche's last novel, featuring a genuine nymphomaniac, was based on the man's daughter.
