Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barbara Gowdys outrageous, hilarious, disturbing, and compassionate novel is about the Canary family, their immoderate passions and eccentricities, and their secret lives and histories. The deepest secret of all is harbored in the silence of the youngest daughter, Joan, who doesnt grow, who doesnt speak, but who can play the piano like Mozart though shes never had a lesson. Joan is a mystery, and in the novels stunning climax her family comes to understand that each of them is a mystery, as marvelous as Joan, as irreducible as the mystery of life itself. In its compassionate investigation of moral truths and its bold embrace of the fractured nature of every one of its characters, Mister Sandman attains the heightened quality of a modern-day parable.

Synopsis:

Gowdy's delightfully quirky novel(New York Times Book Review) about an oddball Toronto family is so brilliantly crafted and flat-out fun to read that she makes sinners of us all (Washington Post Book World). A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year.
