Nancy Huston’s novel, Fault Lines, which was originally published in French (winning France’s Prix Femina in 2006) and is translated by the author herself, is a family history and an exploration of the trauma of war. It’s a tale told backwards in four segments, each narrated by a six-year-old child from a different generation of the same family: Sol in 2004 California, obsessed with Iraq; Randall, encountering the 1982 Lebanon war after moving from New York to Haifa; Sadie in 1962 Toronto and New York; and Kristina in 1944-45 Germany.
