Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the acclaimed Giller Prize Finalist and Governor Generals Award Winner: a delightfully funny and charming second novel about Canadas smallest town.

Life in Winnipeg didnt 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 Hoseas attempts to achieve his dream of meeting the Prime Minister — even if that

means keeping the towns 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.
