For two years now, Paul Hansen has been locked up in jail in Montréal. There, he shares his cell with Horton, a Hells Angel who is in prison for murder.
Rewind: Paul is a caretaker at the Excelsior, an apartment complex in which he takes care of everything, the people above all. When he isn’t helping the residents, or doing maintenance, he meets up with Winona, his wife. Flying her plane, she takes him in the sky, above the clouds. But soon, everything changes. When a new manager arrives at the Excelsior, conflict breaks out: the inevitable happens.
The novel takes place against a variety of very different backgrounds: a church surrounded by sand, open-pit asbestos mines, a silver-coloured river, the sound waves of an organ.

A story about life, Not All Men Live the Same Way is one of Jean-Paul Dubois’ most beautiful books. We discover a writer animated by an acute sense of fraternity and a feeling of revolt against every injustice.
