Madame Victoria

A short story collection by Catherine Leroux.

Catherine Leroux, translated by Lazer Lederhendler

In 2001, the skeleton of a woman is found in the woods surrounding the [then] Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Despite a thorough investigation involving the hospital's records, a reconstitution of the woman's face, several missing person appeals, DNA test, and an analysis of the deceased's hair revealing where she'd lived, and how she ate, it was impossible to find out who that woman was. She was dubbed Madame Victoria, put into a box in an evidence room, and once again forgotten. (From Biblioasis)
