His Whole LifeBook - 2015
An irresistible new novel that has everything we would hope for from this celebrated Giller Prize-winning author. At the outset, ten-year-old Jim and his Canadian mother and American father are on a journey from New York City to a lake in eastern Ontario, charting the deepening bond between mother and son even as the family comes apart. This captivating novel is an unconventional coming of age story as only Elizabeth Hay could tell it. An exploration into the mystery of how members of a family can hurt each other so deeply, and remember those hurts in such detail, yet find openings that shock them with love and forgiveness.
