The Girl Who Was Saturday Night by Heather O’Neill
Register beginning on Tuesday, March 3, and pick up your book to get started reading!
The Girl Who Was Saturday Night describes what it is like to be young and to have a lifetime of experience and grief already behind you. Even as it gives us a cast of vibrant, funny, tragic, sharply drawn characters, O’Neill broadens her focus to portray the political climate in Quebec at the time of the 1995 referendum and to give us a sense of why, in the words of her narrator, the daughter of an iconic Québécois singer, there is something “distinct,” something “weird and special” about us.
Heather O’Neill’s first novel, Lullabies for Little Criminals, earned accolades around the world, including being named winner of Canada Reads 2007 and the Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction, and being a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction and the Orange Prize. She is a regular contributor to CBC Books, CBC Radio, National Public Radio, The New York Times Magazine, The Gazette (Montreal) and The Walrus. She was born in Montreal, where she currently lives.
