Deathly Delights

Anne Dandurand
Translated by Luise Von Flotow

Awards: Finalist, 1991 Governor General's Award for Translation

Tales of desire and crimes of passion set in dark alleys and closed bedrooms: perfect murders and strangely erotic encounters by desperate, angry women. Deathly Delights is Anne Dandurand's third collection of short stories; her first to be translated into English.

Fiction 1998


"In these unconventional pieces, sex and death are never far apart ... she is mordant and morbid in a refreshing way." -Globe & Mail

"Dandurand's method of storytelling is atmospheric and colourful, a distinctive kind of Montreal Gothic."-Whig Standard
