Desjardins, Martine

The second of six children, Martine Desjardins was baptised and received confirmation in Mont-Royal, Quebec, where she still lives with her husband and her fox-terrier Winnie. After studying languages, Russian and Italian, as well as comparative literature, she began free-lancing for several magazines. Today she is the literary critic for L’actualité. She no longer goes to church and hates traveling. Her novel Maleficium won the Jacques-Brossard Prize and the Sunburst Award. She comes back with a very funny and dark story, The Green Room, in March 2016.
