The Toronto French Book Fair welcomed last December 2nd and 3rd French writer Dominique Fabre. Author of more than fifteen novels, short stories and poems, his books have been translated in numerous countries, including two novels in the United States: Guys Like Me, published by New Vessel Press in 2015 (translated by Howard Curtis) and The Waitress Was New, published by Archipelago Books in 2008 (and translated by Jordan Stump).

During the Book Fair, Dominique Fabre took part in the roundtable "The Character, from the infinitely small to the infinitely big", with author Jean Fahmy and journalist from Radio-Canada Sylvie-Anne Jeanson. You can find feedback about this event on the French-speaking media Le Métropolitain and L'Express.

On the occasion of his visit to Toronto, Dominique Fabre was also invited on the Radio-Canada morning show Y'a pas deux matins pareils and was interviewed by the journalist Claudia Hébert. You can listen again to the show (in French) here.
