MARILOUS IS EVERYWHERE

À propos

Richly atmospheric and darkly unforgettable, an astonishing American debut about lost innocence and life on the ragged margins of society''Lyrical, sexy, humane, and just a total pleasure to read'' Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot ''Remarkable. Fiction debuts this accomplished don''t come along very often... Smith is a writer of immense talent and rare imagination [and] this novel reads like a miracle'' - NPR''To be honest, we just weren''t looking that hard. Nobody knew where to search and it was summer vacation anyway - but that wasn''t the reason nobody looked for Jude.''One summer, a teenager disappears from Deep Valley, Pennsylvania. Jude is beautiful, intelligent, and mixed race. The cops search for her - but not as hard as they would if she were a white girl. Watching this mystery unfold is Cindy, a younger girl from a white trash family, who has idolised Jude for years. And so, in the absence of anyone to give a damn about her, Cindy starts to slip out of her own life and into the space Jude left behind...Marilou Is Everywhere is a story about the desperation to escape - and the terrible, intimate crimes we commit to do so. Swimming in the rich melancholia of rural America, it is a fall from grace, a moral provocation, and a heartbreaking account of life in the margins.>
