End of the Night Girl, the first novel by Adelaide writer Amy T. Matthews, is a story about one of the most difficult tasks of writing and scholarship in the past sixty years: imagining the Shoah. In attempting this task, Matthews emulates writers such as W.G. Sebald, Thomas Keneally, Elfriede Jelinek, and Inga Clendinnen.
