Jimmy Beaulieu is the founder of the publishing house m#65533;canique g#65533;n#65533;rale and the author or editor of eight books in French. Suddenly Something Happened is his first book in English and collects the storylines from Quelques Pelures and Le Moral des Troupes (which won the 2005 Prix Espoir Qu#65533;b#65533;cois), with a new Epilogue to form the definitive edition of this autobiographical work. Jimmy ponders the difference between living in Quebec City and Montreal with its bohemian nightlife, reminisces about his childhood in a charmingly candid way, shares his frustrations and victories in art and in love, and expresses his philosophy on everything from racism to pop music and from masculinity to the Qu#65533;b#65533;cois identity. Told in richly rendered pencil lines in front of masterfully drawn backdrops portraying Quebec's urban and rural landscapes, these are the complete non-adventures of Jimmy Beaulieu, an easy going artist with an appreciation for the finer things in life--such as the balconies of Montreal in spring time and station wagons with fake wood paneling.
