A little girl is growing up in an Ontario village. Her father has taken off, and the world is full of dangers she doesn't understand. Her friends have names like Manon-just-Manon, BB, and Valence Berri, and things seem pretty okay, most of the time, except that girls keep disappearing. When she leaves the village for a suburb of Ottawa and then moves downtown and beyond, she never looks back.

Novelist Martine Delvaux was born in Québec City and brought up in a francophone village in Ontario. Her most recent books are an essay on photographer Nan Goldin and another on serial irls from Barbie to Pussy Riot, which will be published in English by Between the Lines. Delvaux studied in the United States and England and now lives in Montreal, where she teaches women's studies at Université du Québec à Montréal.

"Delvaux's voice is mysterious and disturbing and raw. She spins ordinary life into a horror story. She finds redemption in the mundane. Her girls are ugly on the inside, and therein lies their strange, explosive beauty." - Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals and The Girl Who Was Saturday Night"Fans of the gritty realism in works by Quebec authors such as Heather O'Neill or Rawi Hage will find another favourite in Delvaux." -- The Humber Literary Review (Spring-Summer 2015)
