From her very first novel, Putain (Seuil, 2001), Nelly Arcan shook the literary landscape with her flamboyant lyricism and her preoccupations with such recurring themes as our cultures vertiginous obsession with youth, and its reverse: the draw of death.Now beyond the ripples of scandal Arcans work has caused, here are the last echoes of her work, and it is as stunning as it is brief.

Burqa of Skin, with its gruesome title, catapults her work into contemporary debates on culture and gender.The book collects three previously unpublished works: The Dress, The Child in the Mirror and Shame. The first two are written in that turbulent, suffocating language that was Arcans singular brand, that of a writer on the edge. In the third text, she analyses with inexhaustible ferocity her humiliating experience on the set of a TV talk show.

Two lesser-known non-fiction pieces are also included in this collection: a reflection on speed dating and a column published in 2004 entitled Suicide Can Be Harmful to Your Health.
