“Charming tall tales.” —The New York Times
From the acclaimed author of All My Puny Sorrows and A Complicated Kindness comes this a reissue of Miriam Toews’ delightfully funny and charming 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.
