One of the earliest Canadian noir novels, Sugar-Puss on Dorchester Street tells the story of Gisele Lepine, a beautiful farmer’s daughter who leaves her sleepy farming community for the neon lights of Montreal. In the fast-paced city, dreams quickly turn to nightmares as the young “farmette” finds herself surrounded by drug-dealers, newspapermen, nightclub owners, chorus girls, and a fatherly boxer who is well past his prime. It’s all a bit too much for innocent Gisele, who hasn’t yet had to deal with the violence that is to come. All becomes a whirlwind in this novel set in the postwar "open city," where burlesque houses were plentiful, Dorchester Street was lined with nightclubs, and Decarie Boulevard served as Canada’s Sunset Strip.
