Drama Queens by Vickie Gendreau , Translated by Aimee Wall

Drama-queens-by-vickie-gendreau-translated-by-aimee-wall-cover

In 2012, Vickie Gendreau was diagnosed with a brain tumour and wrote a book narrating her own death. Testament could have been Gendreau’s first and only novel, but she kept writing, furiously, until the very end.

Published posthumously after Gendreau’s death in 2013 at age 24, Drama Queens continues her exploration of illness and death that began in Testament, but with even greater urgency and audacity. In her singular voice, Gendreau mixes genres and forms, moving from art installations to fantastical little films to poetry, returning again and again to a deeply raw and unflinching narrative of her increasingly difficult days.
