“There is an intriguingly cinematic, almost voyeuristic, quality to Wandering Souls in Paradise Lost … undeniable satisfaction to be had in piecing together the threads of connection.”
The Globe and Mail

“Wandering through Rioux’s prose is a delightful way to search for glimpses of paradise, truth or both.”
Canadian Literature

“A well executed parody of our search for paradise and all its literature.”
The Rover


With her follow-up to Wednesday Night at the End of the World, Hélène Rioux explores the landscape of the written word in search of lost paradises. It is a collection of interconnected tales in which people from vastly different walks of life are united in their search — spanning cultures, histories, and geographies — for what they have lost and what they never had: a soulmate, a soul, childhood, and a reason to go on living.
