After a novel and a story, Marisol Drouin imposes a poetry determined to ward off all evil spells.

There’s Lola’s world and then there’s the world of the girls, Rosie, Katherine, Isabelle, Sophie and D. All of them share the difficulty of writing, saying, being in love, enjoying and existing in a mythology that exploits sex, life and creation in equal measure. Lola And The Girls For Sale is a punchy polyphonic text that doesn’t clutter up with pretences; on the contrary, it knocks the masks off and takes all the backlash head-on. Pornography, privileges, trafficking, stumbling and distortions of love are here as many premises of these "stories born from the word mouth/throat".
The writing of Marisol Drouin, a kind of wild horse, visits other narratives to access other desires and thus gain freedom.
