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 immediately established its author as one of Canada's greatest novelists. Seldom has a novel received as uniformly high praise from all quarters as this poignant and beautifully written story of the little people in the depression-ridden slums of Montreal. The author's supreme artistry has made her characters unforgettable and her novel an enduring part of world literature." (from back cover)
