One of Jacques Poulin’s masterpieces, this tender and perceptive tale explores the textures of solitude, compassion, language, fear, and the imagination. Meet Jim: a writer suffering from vivid dreams and bouts of writer’s block. Meet Mister Blue, a dignified and prophetic cat and Jim’s sole companion that spring on the Ile d’Orleans. That is, until the day they discover a copy of The Arabian Nights in a cave along the beach. Tinged with heartbreak as well as joy, Mister Blue is a novel of subtle shadows and emotions, of wide-open blue sky–a ballet of the impossible.

This is a great and very beautiful novel.
Le Devoir

This is a great and very beautiful novel.

Le Devoir


The writer hiding from the world in his house on the beach is as shy and charming and friendly as this light, generous, refreshing novel. . . told with Hemingway-like sparseness and minimal melodrama. . .Poulin earns his lump-in-the-throat ending.
