Gabrielle Roy is a French-Canadian writer. She is considered by many to be one of the most important Francophone writers in Canadian history and one of the most influential Canadian authors.
"The Tin Flute, Gabrielle Roy’s first novel, is a classic of Canadian fiction. Imbued with Roy’s unique brand of compassion and compelling understanding, this moving story focuses on a family in the Saint-Henri slums of Montreal, its struggles to overcome poverty and ignorance, and its search for love. An affecting story of familial tenderness, sacrifice, and survival during the Second World War. The novel was made into a critically acclaimed motion picture in 1983." (Good Reads, 2022).
