Joanne Proulx's fist novel Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet won Canada's Sunburst Award for Fantastic Fiction and was named a best debut by The Globe and Mail and Kirkus Reviews. A feature film adaptation will be released in 2018. A graduate of the Bennington Writing Seminars, Joanne lives, writes and teaches in Ottawa, Canada.
"The novel's visuals are vivid and well realized, the characters and their dramas cinematic."--New York Times Book Review "Proulx's novel covers a lot of territory, with several twists and turns... The story excels in its depiction of women."--amNY "Believe the hype about this family novel that's as complex as it is creative."--Hello Giggles "Unflinching."--Harper's Bazaar, Best New Books "Provocative...Gorgeously written, Proulx's narrative offers a fascinating plot and both a searing exploration of the butterfly effect of trauma and the uncanny persistence of love in improbable circumstances."--Publisher's Weekly "We All Love the Beautiful Girls has the ability to leave a reader breathless. The plot twists are daring. The characters and their dialogue capture the ways in which adversity can alter people. Lovers' wounds are plastered across every page and the veneer of civility becomes shockingly thin. And yet, in the end, love, decency, and forgiveness triumph. Think of the 1986 David Lynch film, Blue Velvet, in which brutality lurks just beneath the surface of everyday life, then erupts ferociously before disappearing back into the depths."--Quill & Quire "With We All Love the Beautiful Girls, Proulx ... moves firmly into John Cheever territory, exploring with a keen eye and incisive prose the suburbs of quiet desperation, peeling back facades to reveal the desperation and violence that lurk just below the surface. When that violence comes to a head, the results are as devastating as they are unexpected."--Toronto Star "An emotional thrill-ride that manages to capture the tenderness and rage unique to adolescence and middle-age, the heartbreak of first love, and the fragility of even the most stable-seeming marriage."--Zoe Whittall, bestselling author of The Best Kind of People "When I finished this novel, I wanted to tell everyone I knew to read it. It is one of the best, most important books I've read in a very long time."--The Globe and Mail "We All Love the Beautiful Girls is a gripping tale of love gone awry. In a lively plot filled with twists and turns, Joanne Proulx's characters flail about and pay a high price for their impulsiveness and rage. This is a book to keep readers glued to the page, and enthralled by the author's skill and wisdom."--Lynne Sharon Schwartz, author of Two-Part Inventions
