Dead Girls, Paperback / softback Book

Dead Girls Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In this brutal, gripping novel, Selva Almada narrates the case of three small-town teenage girls murdered in the 1980's in the interior of Argentina.Three deaths without culprits: 19-year old Andrea Danne, stabbed in her own bed; 15-year old Maria Luisa Quevedo, raped, strangled, and dumped in wasteland; and 20-year old Sarita Mundin, whose disfigured body was found on a river bank.

Almada takes these and other tales of abused women to weave together a dry, straightforward portrait of gender violence that surpasses national borders and speaks to readers' consciousness all over the world.Following the success of The Wind That Lays Waste, internationally acclaimed Argentinian author Selva Almada dives into the heart of this problem with a reported novel, comparable to Truman Capote's _In Cold Blood _or John Hersey's Hiroshima, in response to the urgent need for attention to the ongoing catastrophe that is femicide.Not a police chronicle, not a thriller, but a contemporary noir novel that lives in the hearts of these women and the men who have abused them.

Almada captures the invisible, and with lyrical brutality, blazes a new trail in journalistic fiction.
