Dead Girls

By Selva Almada (Translated by Annie McDermott)

In this brutal, gripping novel, internationally acclaimed author Selva Almada narrates the case of three small-town teenage girls murdered in the 1980's in the interior of Argentina, writing a piece of journalistic finction in response to the urgent need for attention to the ongoing catastrophe that is femicide. Not a police chronicle, not a thriller, but a contemporary noir novel that lives in the hearts of these women and the men who have abused them.
