The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches
by Gaétan Soucy and Sheila Fischman




Overview -
Alone with their authoritarian father on an immense estate surrounded by a forest, a pair of siblings speak a language and inhabit a universe of their own making. When their father commits suicide, they are forced into contact with the villagers beyond the enclosure and their cloak of romance and superstition quickly falls away to reveal not only the startling truth about themselves, but the startling truth about the world to them.

Balancing naivet with carnality, Soucy creates a powerfully gripping story where nothing is as it first seems. His surprising twists and fascination with guilt, cruelty, and violence make this story a resounding triumph.

Featuring a new introduction by Rawi Hage, the Dublin IMPAC award-winning author of DeNiro's Game.
