Molly, a sassy Australian waitress, is haunted by the ghost of a murdered Polish Jew. The two young women's stories, each a compelling page - turner, combine teasingly in one as End of the Night Girl explores shadows cast by the Holocaust across decades, continents and cultures.
'A brilliant testimonial to the power of the literary imagination.' - Nicholas Jose
'Clothed in prose that sparks and simmers, End of the Night Girl slowly reveals her dark and beautiful bones.' - Carol Lefevre
'Amy Matthews' world of gritty realism is foreshadowed by an older, more traditional society about to be invaded by chaos and horror. One cannot help admiring Matthews' accuracy of observation and her subtle placement of emotion in the uncovering of these parallel universes through the coalescence of memory and imagination. This is a remarkable novel of contemporary rootlessness, haunted histories and redemptive decency.' - Brian Castro
'Can atrocity be changed somehow in art? This book cannot answer this, but it powerfully suggests that the creative act is meaningful even when atrocity is too big for us to mould it. As Molly attempts to imagine and create from an atrocity she hasn't shared, she herself is remade.' - Eva Hornung
Winner of the Adelaide Festival Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript
