Description

“There’s something brave about mythologizing the most embarrassing, raw-nerve years of your life. Marie Darsigny’s debut is scrappy and sentimental, sharp around the edges yet as frightfully catchy as the saccharine song lyrics snaking their way through Darsigny’s poetry. Brimming with cultural signifiers as dead as Myspace, as 90s as Angel perfume, and as New Wave as a Godard film, A Little Death Around the Heart collects the bric-a-brac of contemporaneity, managing to amass something cohesive, crooked, obsessive, and a lot like love.”

—Domenica Martinello, poet, publicity agent for The Puritan

Marie Darsigny is a bilingual writer who lives in Montreal, Quebec. Her work has appeared in both English and French in xoJane, xoVain, Urbania, Nightlife Magazine, Ton Petit Look, Girls Get Busy and The Void. A Little Death Around the Heart is her first collection of writing.
