Shortlisted for the 2016 Giller Prize

Selected for Indies Introduce Summer/Fall 2016

Catherine Leroux's first novel, translated into English brilliantly by Lazer Lederhendler, ties together stories about siblings joined in surprising ways. A woman learns that she absorbed her twin sister's body in the womb and that she has two sets of DNA; a girl in the deep South pushes her sister out of the way of a speeding train, losing her legs; and a political couple learn that they are non-identical twins separated at birth. The Party Wall establishes Leroux as one of North America's most intelligent and innovative young authors.

Catherine Leroux was born in 1979 in Montreal, Quebec, where she continues to live and write.

an enigmatic non-linear novel
short-listed for the 2016 Giller Prize
if that appeals - just read it, as some reviews have too much information
I thoroughly enjoyed the concept and the writing.
