Last Night in Montreal is a story of love, amnesia, compulsive travel, the depths and the limits of family bonds, and the nature of obsession.
Annotation:
Lilia Albert has been on the move her entire life--ever since her father abducted her as a child--and her adult life has been a series of disappearances and goodbyes. Eli is one such goodbye, but unlike the other men Lilia has left behind, he isn't giving up so easily. Michaela is also fixated on Lilia. She blames this wandering spirit for destroying her family. (Michaela's father is the PI whose assignment to track down Lilia turned into an obsession that eventually eclipsed his concerns for his own family.) Like Lilia, Emily St. John Mandel's debut novel LAST NIGHT IN MONTREAL, is beautifully restless. With grace and ease, Mandel tells this story of memory, love, and family, from multiple perspectives and temporal vantage points. But the virtuosity of the storytelling is not what carries this novel--it is the poignancy and depth Mandel achieves in her characters and the insights their mistakes and obsessions offer her sure-to-be-enchanted readers.

Praise

"LAST NIGHT IN MONTREAL is...rewarding for the multiple vantage points on offer, shining a veritable halogen lamp upon [a] grown-up girl's obsession with disappearance and reinvention, those left baffled by her actions, and the general nagging feeling of not being who you're supposed to be or making the right decision--or the wrong one." - Sarah Weinman 05/02/2010
