"Nineteen years old, free of prospects a nd inescapably famous, the twins Nicolas and Nouschka Tremblay are trying to outrun the notoriety of their father, Etienne, a legendary Quebecois folksinger with a genius for the absurd and for winding up in prison. Since thetwins were little, Etienne has made them part of his unashamed seduction o f the province, parading them on talk shows and then dumping them with their decrepit grandfather while he disappeared into some festive squalor. Now he is washed up andthe twins are making their own almost-grown-up messes, with every misstep landing on the front pages of the tabloid 'Allo Police'. Nouschka needs to leave behind not only her childhood but also her beloved brother, whose increasingly erratic decisions might take her down with him.But when tragedy strikes, Nouschka realizes that, for better or worse, she is a Tremblay and that home is the only place she wants to be." - from the dustjacket.
