From Our Editors

Kendra Quillen is the leader of Mauve Survivors, a feminist/dyke band in Toronto poised for big time success. Her Ice Maiden mystique and guitar savvy are central to the band's success and her own persona, but her world begins to shatter when she wakes up beside her first lover in a decade and wants to kill him. With one ear turned inward, Kendra leads the Mauve Survivors on tour across Canada and back to her home territory of Michigan's Upper Peninsula where the resulting self-inflicted wounds turn her inward on the last and most painful leg of her journey.
