Product description


Exquisite … Boy is a perfectly compelling protagonist., Miriam Toews, author of Women Talking

A mesmerizing coming of age story that manages to be both magical and intensely real. Boy takes readers on a journey of personal growth in the face of at-times frightening and mysterious obstacles. Pressures in Boy’s life multiply. His family and friends aren’t always there to be relied upon. His plans for the future are darkened with doubt. But for all the very real challenges — as well as those that seem to emerge from a shadowy world beyond — Boy finds always the dignity, the essential decency he needs to continue., Timothy Taylor, author of The Rule of Stephens

Boy is evocative and heartfelt, containing a spark of magic and an achingly real protagonist., Ellen Keith, author of The Dutch Wife

The novel is inarguably well written... the characters, complex., Booklist

Sensitive and unusual book -- Jennifer McCartney, Hamilton Review of Books
