Catherine Leroux's brilliant first novel in English shuffles between, and eventually ties together, stories about siblings joined in surprising ways. Reminiscent of the novels of Tom Robbins and David Mitchell, with well-evoked settings and rich characters, The Party Wall establishes Leroux as one of North America's most intelligent and innovative young authors.
Catherine Leroux was born in 1979 in the Northern suburbs of Montreal. After holding various jobs she became a journalist and devoted herself to writing. Her first novel, Marche en forêt, was published in February 2011 by Éditions Alto.
