Join us in celebrating the release of two highly anticipated new novels by critically acclaimed writers Mona Awad and Lauren Groff, in conversation with CBC Radio's Kathryn Marlow!!
From the critically acclaimed author of Bunny comes Mona Awad's Rouge, a horror-tinted, gothic fairy tale about a lonely dress shop clerk whose mother's unexpected death sends her down a treacherous path in pursuit of youth and beauty. Can she escape her mother’s fate—and find a connection that is more than skin deep?
Lauren Groff’s new novel, The Vaster Wilds, is at once a thrilling adventure story and a penetrating fable about trying to find a new way of living in a world succumbing to the churn of colonialism. The Vaster Wilds is a work of raw and prophetic power that tells the story of America in miniature, through one girl at a hinge point in history, to ask how—and if—we can adapt quickly enough to save ourselves.
