In the End They Told Them All to Get Lost

novel, translation (QC Fiction, 2019)

English translation of the novel In the End They Told Them All to Get Lost by Laurence Leduc-Primeau from the original French (À la fin ils ont dit à tout le monde d’aller se rhabiller, Éditions de ta mère, 2016)

Excerpt in Québec Reads

“It’s rare to find a first-time novelist as confident as Montreal’s Laurence Leduc-Primeau. Narration from Chloe, who has inexplicably exiled herself to South America, is fragmented, but funny and embittered. […] A bold debut.” – Broken Pencil, Summer 2019 Indie Book Pick

“Hero seems to slip easily into Chloé’s shoes and does a great job of recreating her voice. […] The language is well paced and has the same stream-of-consciousness energy as the French. Hero’s writing is straightforward and informal, but not without poetry.”Montreal Review of Books

Laurence Leduc-Primeau is Montreal born and bred. In the End They Told Them All to Get Lost is her first novel and the first to be translated. In 2018 she published Zoologies with La Peuplade.
