Finalist for the 2015 Giller PrizeOne of "Quill & Quire s" Books of the Year, 2015A twenty-five-thousand-copy bestseller in Quebec, "Arvida," with its stories of innocent young girls and wild beasts, attempted murder and ritual mutilation, haunted houses and road trips heading nowhere, is unforgettable.
