Book Description

Nov. 1 2007 0978335104 978-0978335106 0

Morgan and Hannah are part of a group of fellow twenty-something Canadians struggling to navigate a maze of love affairs, failed relationships, obsessions, and departures from the familiar—each with a distinct persona molded by secrets and deceptions. Set against the acutely-drawn urban landscapes of Montreal and Vancouver, this gritty novel deftly shifts perspective from the innocent and idealistic Hannah to the streetwise and damaged Morgan, as well as to their friends and the men in their lives. The book eloquently exposes the lies people tell themselves and others in order to cope with life, and reveals the ongoing alienation and isolation of a world where the only reliable narrator is the future.

Product Description

Review

“…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
