"There are some people who know when they are in love, and there are some people who don't. Jules was the type of person who know when he was in love. Manon was the type of person who did not." Heather O'Neill revisits her award-winning novel Lullabies for Little Criminals with a trip back in time to Val des Loups, the town Jules was born in, and where he met Baby's mother, Manon. This story first appeared in the July/August 2012 issue of The Walrus magazine. Lullabies for Little Criminals was the winner of CBC Canada Reads 2007, the Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction 2007, and shortlisted for multiple prizes, including the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Governer General's Award.
