Listening for Jupiter by Pierre-Luc Landry 
2017, Paperback 

MARCH SOON, and it's already 28°C in Montreal. Hollywood is living a dead-end life working at the local graveyard. Meanwhile, it's snowing non-stop all over Europe and in Toronto, where Xavier works for a pharmaceutical company he couldn't care less about. The two meet somewhere in between... only ever in their dreams. 

Set in London, Bilbao, Alabama, Montauk, and more, this fresh, international novel wom the Ottawa Book Award for French fiction in 2016. It weaves the fates of two unlikely friends whose days and nights are filled with movies and music, sleeping pills, and shooting stars. A beautiful piece of magical realism with a modern, existential twist.
