Seizing: Places (Ravir: Les Lieux) was awarded the Prix Mallarme in 2005, the first time that a Canadian had won this prestigious prize. It is arguably Helene Dorion's most ambitious work to date, consisting of five sequences ('Seizing: Cities'; 'Seizing: Shadows'; 'Seizing: Mirrors; 'Seizing: Windows' and 'Seizing: Faces') and although she has written plenty since its publication, there is something culminative about this book. The book is prefaced by an introduction by the translator, and there is an afterword by the author, both of which are invaluable to those encountering Dorion's work for the first time.
