Product Description


“…the novel offers a thoughtful examination of sexuality, relationships, and what it means to tell the truth.” -- Quill and Quire

“Be Good is an endearing and ambitious novel, chronicling the ‘walking wounded’ of a Canadian youth afflicted by a culture that implores them to ‘be good’ or ‘go west young f—ed-up chick.’” -- The Toronto Star

“In her mesmeric debut novel Be Good, young author Stacey May Fowles demonstrates a budding mastery over the poetic aspects of prose. She showers the reader time and again with rhythmically beautiful sentences…Her skill in using unique description to create evocative landscapes and mindscapes has a hypnotic effect…overall this is an enchanting novel…” -- The Feminist Review

“Toronto writer Stacey May Fowles is cruising a scarred landscape between the poles of gay and straight. Refreshingly, she never labours over which pole Hannah or Morgan might favour. Be Good is about twentysomethings stranded among our multiple definitions of what love is, between aimless wants and serial not-havings.” -- The Globe and Mail

From the Back Cover

"In turns, humourous and hard-wired, tawdry and tender, Stacey May Fowles' Be Good is essential reading for women in their 20s. For anyone beyond, this novel rebuilds the importance of those years, illuminating the darkest parts, and startling in its ability to remind you where you've been. Her writing sings love songs for best friends who have gone to the brink."

– Emily Schultz, author of Black Coffee Night and Joyland

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Be Good," is indeed a Canadian version of the concrete jungle. Fowles writes an incredibly incisive account of disaffected twenty somethings who are struggling to find their feet in a world they have grown up to believe is based on lies. The characters all have trust issues and fight to construct their own truths, however reliable or unreliable that may be.
