Little Wet-Paint Girl

A visionary memoir of self-discovery from a renowned Francophone poet.
Born to a French-Canadian mother and Algerian father, Ouanessa Younsi is a unique voice in modern Francophone poetry. In this deeply personal poetry, Younsi embarks on a surreal odyssey through a liminal world of belonging and unbelonging, absence and presence, mind and body. Originally published in French and translated here by Rebecca Thompson, Little Wet-Paint Girl is an unsettling work that invites fresh contemplation on the existential mysteries of self.
