A timely work of unsettling journalistic fiction that focuses on the apathy towards gender violence and femicide that exists in Argentina.
Considered a precursor to the #NiUnaMenos movement that tackles gender violence in Latin America, in the vein of #MeToo.
Almada received an Honor from the Argentine Senate in 2019 for her work to raise awareness of violence against children, adolescents and women.
First Charco title to be published in US and UK simultaneously.

"Fate has in Dead Girls the perfume of a Greek tragedy: immutable, irreversible, lethal." --El Pais "Far from the detective story, this is an intimate tale, a certain negative of the autobiography of a young woman looking at other young women and how all of them are perceived by a society where misogyny and violence against them is still an everyday affair." --Pagina 12 "A tense, precise chronicle that treats seriously a still serious subject." --El Cultural, Spain "Selva Almada reinvents the imaginative rural world of a country. She is an author gifted with a very uncommon power and sensitivity." --Rolling Stone (Argentina)
