Two novels teasingly combine in one as End of the Night Girl explores the shadow cast by the Holocaust across centuries, continents, and cultures. Molly’s story, set in Adelaide and told in the first person, is a sassy modern drama of a young woman’s search for purpose amid confused family, sexual and social relationships. 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. Winner 2010 Adelaide Festival Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript.
