An exercise in admiration, this book takes a look at the petrifying work of Diamanda Galás, the singer with three octaves. Far from being dumbfounded by Galás and her voice, Catherine Mavrikakis takes the artist's work head-on. From ancient Greece to the suburban United States, from the Armenian genocide to the AIDS epidemic of the 80s and 90s, Galás is constantly renewing herself.
Catherine Mavrikakis has published several novels including Le ciel de Bay City (2008), and L'annexe (2019), and several essays, including L'éternité en accéléré (2010). She has won many important awards for her work, including the Grand prix du livre de Montréal (2008), the Prix des libraires du Québec (2009) and the Prix littéraire des collégiens (2012). Mavrikakis is professor of French at the Université de Montréal.
