Ana and her son, Philippe, are grieving the loss of Philippe's father when Ana's hairstylist Kimi dies in an apparent suicide. Driven by a force she doesn't understand, Ana starts digging into Kimi's past in Guyana in 1978, which leads to nested tales of north and south, past and present, and to the Jonestown Massacre. A stunning translation of a masterpiece by one of Quebec's most important novelists. Elise Turcotte is a novelist and award-winning poet who has twice received the Prix Emile-Nelligan. Rhonda Mullins was a finalist for the 2007 Governor General's Literary Award for Translation and translated Jocelyne Saucier's And the Birds Rained Down.
