A classic of French Canadian literature, a small part of this book consists of a description of French Canadian life in 1910, while most of the work consists of journalistic letters from Paris exposing Parisian life from a religious perspective, i.e. a description of the religious events of the time (Masses, Eucharistic conference with priests and bishops).
A journalist and columnist, Ernest Bilodeau (1881-1956) lived for a year in Western Canada before returning to Montreal in 1914 to collaborate with the newspaper LE DEVOIR.
