The debut novel of young Québec author and illustrator Alessandro Cassa, has just been published in Europe. The book entitled “Le professeur Acarus Dumdell et ses potions incongrues” is a fantasy story set around the early part of the last century in Meadowfield, United-Kingdom. The literary piece, also illustrated by the author, is already on sale in eight countries and has been well received by the critics.
This work is not Alessandro Cassa’s first foray into the literary or artistic world. In addition to publishing “Le Chant des fées” in his native country, the author’s short films “Double Espresso” and “Jrauomesn” were both aired at the Cannes Film Festival’s Short Corner.
Alessandro Cassa was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in January 2013 for his achievements in the fields of Culture, Literature and Cinema.
