Description

Lucien and Nataa might have slipped toward love, if her past in Sarajevo hadn't caught up with her. Nataa finds work modeling for a painter in Toronto, but he is murdered. Nataa disappears that night, running for her life. Her vanishing is connected to the discovery of a video, secretly filmed in a small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war. Butterfly is a novel that charts a controlled descent through the dark legacy of war and the underbelly of the global art scene ... into a world ruled by a desperate hope for impossible redemption.

Editorial Review

"Butterfly is a taut, tight, and tense masterpiece. In this finely-cut jewel of a novel, John Delacourt's crystalline prose drives the heart-stopping story at just the perfect pace, leaving you no choice but to keep on turning the pages until you know, and feel, everything. A deeply satisfying read from a very talented writer."--Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour
