Accordéon is an experimental novel, a piercing deconstruction of Québécois culture, an ode to Montréal—a city where everything happens at once and all realities exist simultaneously. Against a satirical Ministry of Culture set on quotas, preservation, and containment according to its own cultural code, Kaie Kellough weaves voices and images from the margins to probe collective fantasies of Québec old and new.

About the Author

Kaie Kellough is a word-sound systemizer. His systems originate in the inchoate swirl of vowels, consonants, misspellings, shapes, stammerings, and emerge as audio recordings, books, visual entities, volumes of letters, and performances that verse and reverse utterance. Kaie’s work fuses formal experiment and social engagement. Kaie is the author of two books of poetry, Lettricity (Cumulus Press) and Maple Leaf Rag (ARP Books), and two sound recordings, Vox:Versus (WOW), and Creole Continuum (HOWL!). Kaie lives in Montreal and performs and publishes internationally.
