In her new book, the feminist author Martine Delvaux links her own experience as a writer with that of the American photographer and installation artist Nan Goldin, whose life has been marked by the suicide of her beloved older sister Barbara, and who is best-known for her intimate portrayals of the sexual underground.
Novelist Martine Delvaux was born in Québec City and brought up in a francophone village in Ontario. Her most recent books are an essay on photographer Nan Goldin and another on serial irls from Barbie to Pussy Riot, which will be published in English by Between the Lines. Delvaux studied in the United States and England and now lives in Montreal, where she teaches women's studies at Université du Québec à Montréal.
