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.
Sensitive and unusual book
Hamilton Review of Books
Powerful and moving, it engages the reader with the challenge of ideas, expressed through character, choice and action.
