Guyana.cover_

Ana and her nine-year-old son, Philippe, are grieving the loss of Philippe’s father when their beloved hairdresser, Kimi, dies in an apparent suicide. Driven by an obsession she can’t quite come to terms with, Ana starts digging into Kimi’s past in Guyana, drawing violent connections between north and south, past and present, with the Jonestown Massacre as backdrop. A stunning translation of a winner of the Grand Prix du livre de Montréal, a masterful novel by one of Quebec’s most important novelists.
