A Boy of Good Breeding
From the acclaimed Giller Prize Finalist and Governor General's Award Winner: a delightfully funny and charming second novel about Canada's smallest town.
Life in Winnipeg didn't go as planned for Knute and her daughter. But living back in Algren with her parents and working for the longtime mayor, Hosea Funk, has its own challenges: Knute finds herself mixed up with Hosea's attempts to achieve his dream of meeting the Prime Minister -- even if that
means keeping the town's population at an even 1500. Bringing to life small-town Canada and all its larger-than-life characters, A Boy of Good Breeding is a big-hearted, hilarious novel about finding out where you belong.
A wonderfully warm, witty and wise novel of small-town dreams and eccentric families.
