We’re never quite sure what made Chloé take a flight to an unnamed country in South America.

Amidst the quirky observational humour of her internal monologue, a story of loneliness emerges, as she tries to form meaningful connections in her new surroundings.
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.
