From the New York Times bestselling author of Station Eleven

Lilia has been leaving people behind her entire life. Haunted by her inability to remember her early childhood, and by a mysterious shadow that seems to dog her wherever she goes, Lilia moves restlessly from city to city, abandoning lovers and friends along the way. But then she meets Eli, and he's not ready to let her go, not without a fight.

Gorgeously written, charged with tension and foreboding, Emily St. John Mandel's Last Night in Montreal is the story of a life spent at the centre of a criminal investigation. It is a novel about identity, love and amnesia, the depths and limits of family bonds and - ultimately - about the nature of obsession.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Last Night in Montreal is literary crime fiction of the highest order. It is unusual to encounter a novel that so vividly creates a sense of life on the run . . . Intense and lyrical, the novel asks unsettling questions about who is the real victim of the tragedy that looms over the characters. - The Sunday Times

Mandel is an exuberant storyteller - New York Times

Finely wrought . . . What we're made to ponder is the mystery of human connection: how it is born, how it fades and dies and revives, how love defines us or leaves us undone - Globe and Mail

Taut, gripping . . . elegantly compelling - Booklist

Mandel has a beautiful writing style - Independent on Sunday

Mandel tells an utterly absorbing story, pulling readers down the rabbit hole and keeping them racing through its long, strange warrens. The writing is vibrant, and Lilia is a vivid and haunting character . . . Last Night in Montreal is an exciting debut: a thriller, a love story, and a quiet ballad about life's fleeting connections - Quill & Quire

Highly recommended for all contemporary fiction collections - Library Journal

The debut of a lyrical voice, singing its heart out . . . a beautiful work - Darin Strauss, author of CHANG & ENG
