“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

Synopsis:

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.
