Subtly linked by the background narrative of a serial killer's arrest in Vancouver, the stories in this collection inhabit a dark, urban landscape as they journey into the realm of desperate relationships, of power and impulse, emotional wagers and negotiations. As provocative as it is brilliant, Dead Girls boldly announces an original new voice in contemporary fiction. A hugely acclaimed, prize-winning debut.
