Femicide is defined as the murder of women simply because they are women. Following the success of The Wind That Lays Waste, internationally acclaimed Argentinian author Selva Almada dives into the heart of this crime with a unique journalistic novel, comparable to Truman Capote's In Cold Blood or John Hersey's Hiroshima.

Almada narrates the case of three small-town teenage girls murdered in the 1980s; three unpunished deaths that occurred even before the word femicide was even coined. In this brutal but necessary novel, Almada brings to the fore these crimes committed at a time when Argentina was celebrating the return of democracy. Three deaths without culprits: Selva Almada takes these tales to weave together a portrait of gender violence that surpasses national borders and speaks to readers worldwide.

This is not a police chronicle, although there is an investigation. This is not a thriller, although there is mystery and suspense. The real noir element of Dead Girls lies in the heart of the women described here and of the men that have abused them. With her unique style of prose that captures the invisible, and with lyrical brutality, Almada manages to blaze new trails in journalistic fiction.



Like Flannery OConnor and Juan Rulfo, Almada fills her taut, eerie novel with an understanding of rural life, loneliness, temptation and faith.' --BBC Culture

The drama of this refreshingly unpredictable debut . . . smolders like a lit fuse waiting to touch off its well-orchestrated events. . . . A stimulating, heady story' --Publishers Weekly

A dynamic introduction to a major Latin American literary force' --Shelf Awareness
