The Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature site has a little blurb:
Amy T. Matthews: End of the Night Girl
Two novels, each a compelling page-turner, combine teasingly in one in Amy Matthews’s End of the Night Girl. The author has carried off her risky venture with extraordinary skill, intelligence and assurance. Molly’s story, set in Adelaide and told in first person, is a sassy modern drama of a young woman’s search for purpose amid confused family, sexual and social relationships. The yarn is often funny, but is poignant in its depths. Under Molly’s pen emerges, jigsaw-like, the third-person, Holocaust story of Gienia, a murdered young Polish Jewish woman who may or may not be fictional. Part of the pleasure of Amy Matthews’s knowing text is her mastery, and subversion, of genre storytelling, creating a fresh experience for readers.
