Molly and her half brother Kenny are obsessed with a Niagara folktale about an Indian girl who is sacrificed in the Falls. Then Kenny lunges to his death on the night of their high school graduation, and Molly, in despair, marries Kenny’s best friend and flees to Southern California. Molly becomes a drunk, while her husband flourishes as a San Bernadino car salesman.

Forced to return home for her father’s funeral, Molly uncovers a different version of her past, full of family secrets and frustrated love. After her extraordinary first novel Snake, Niagara confirms Mary Woronov as an American writer with an idiosyncratic, surreal voice.

Mary Woronov, a writer as well as a painter and a film director, has long been recognized as a cult film star for Eating Raoul and Rock ‘n’ Roll High School . Her previous publications include an autobiography, Swimming Underground: My Years in the Warhol Factory.
