About this item
Fiction. Translated from the French by JC Sutcliffe. Written with gritty humour in the form of a confession, MAMA'S BOY recounts the family drama of a young man who sets out in search of his mother after a childhood spent shuffling from one foster home to another. A bizarre character with a skewed view of the world, he leads the reader on a quest that is both tender and violent. A runaway bestseller among French readers, MAMA'S BOY is the first book in a trilogy that took Quebec by storm, winning the 2016 Grand Prix littéraire Archambault, and selling more than twenty thousand copies. Now, thanks to translator JC Sutcliffe, English readers will have the opportunity to absorb this darkly funny and disturbing novel from one of Quebec's shining literary stars."David Goudreault will captivate you from the first line!"--Kim Thuy"A tour de force first novel: percussive, with vivid imagery, chiselled and rhythmic, a novel one will not easily forget."--Huffington Post
