Twelve years after its initial publication, the French translation of my first novel, Lost Girls (published by L’Archipel), has been given * * * 1/2 stars (out of four) in La Presse.
It’s quite unusual for a book to do anything after more than a decade other than show up in the FREE! box at somebody’s yard sale (if you’re lucky). So I am enormously grateful to L’Archipel for bringing the novel to readers in France and Quebec alike. I feel like I’ve been born again…though without all the bible thumping and swearing off booze.
