Unsettling Fiction Rhea Tregebov
A young Canadian womans search for her own identity brings her to Paris in 1982, and face to face with the terror of an age-old enemy. Sarah is the youngest of the three Levine sisters. At twenty-five, she is rudderless, caught in a paralysis which keeps her from seizing her own life.

Tregebov deftly portrays the rough edges of the sisters attempts at closeness. She masterfully depicts episodes of emotional explosion as well as tender reconciliation.  Mordechai Ben-Dat

When Sarah is fired from her Toronto job, a chance stay in Paris opens her up to new direction and purpose. But when she reads death to the Jews on the wall above her local M├ętro station, shadows from childhood rise again. As her path crosses that of Laila, a young woman living in an exile remote from the luxuries of 1980s Paris, Sarah stumbles towards an act of terrorism that may realize her greatest fears.

RHEA TREGEBOV is the author of fiction, poetry and childrens picture books. Her first novel, The Knife Sharpeners Bell, won the J.I. Segal Award and was shortlisted for the Kobzar Award. Tregebov was born in Saskatoon and raised in Winnipeg and did graduate work in literature at Cornell and Boston Universities. After working in Toronto for many years as a freelance author and editor, she taught in the UBC Creative Writing Program between 2004-2017.
