With a dozen books published (mostly in French with traditional publishing houses in Canada), Vincent Thibault will soon stand out as one of Quebec’s most prolific writers of his generation. Humble translator, eccentric athlete, fascinated traveller, some of his fiction work has been compared to the great Haruki Murakami’s; his essay "Parkour and the Art du déplacement: Strength, Dignity, Community", tackling themes such as sports sociology, health, courage and creativity, was also one the very first books on the subject. He recently launched a new online platform called Meaning in Motion to promote the relationship between athletics and ethics, and between strength and mindfulness; the website, newsletter and Facebook page will appeal to all movement enthusiasts.
Most of his titles are originally published in French with major publishing houses in Quebec, however the following are now available in English.
